Cosmology (spec fic): Endlessly Microscopic
Molecules are composed of atoms. One scale beneath that lie the protons and electrons, themselves built up of quarks. Where does this delve end? What is the smallest level of matter?
There isn't one.
The universe just goes on forever, smaller and smaller. For every "fundamental" particle there is a smaller class of particle. Perhaps at some point the series repeats itself. Twelve steps below quarks, can be found a class of particle that behaves identically.
Is this how the world operates? The universe occurring on a simultaneous infinity of scales? Does every action hold cause and consequence on lower and higher levels?
This must consume enormous processing power. This is the point.
What we perceive to be the universe is an equation that, if solved, will terminate.
So pray for forever and praise the infinities.
-Ibn Raquva, the 4th Universe

Well, as long as maximum measurement precision is finite, you cannot say things like that for sure.
(And even if it isn't, you still can't. You can never way anything for sure, in fact.)
