"Particle Man" as written by and John S./flansburgh Linnell....
Particle man, particle man
Doing the things a particle can
What's he like? It's not important
Particle man

Is he a dot, or is he a speck?
When he's underwater does he get wet?
Or does the water get him instead?
Nobody knows, Particle man

Triangle man, Triangle man
Triangle man hates particle man
They have a fight, Triangle wins
Triangle man

Universe man, Universe man
Size of the entire universe man
Usually kind to smaller man
Universe man

He's got a watch with a minute hand,
Millennium hand and an eon hand
When they meet it's a happy land
Powerful man, universe man

Person man, person man
Hit on the head with a frying pan
Lives his life in a garbage can
Person man

Is he depressed or is he a mess?
Does he feel totally worthless?
Who came up with person man?
Degraded man, person man

Triangle man, triangle man
Triangle man hates person man
They have a fight, triangle wins
Triangle man

    General CommentParticle man is the atom, basic building block of our reality. What is he like? It's not important. From Aristotle to Neils Bohr, there have been many different models for what the atom is like. All of these models are different, useful to varying degrees, and totally wrong. Our most accurate model, Quantum Physics, only attests to measure reality in terms of statistical possibility. (see: Schrodinger's Cat). Recent studies of Dr. Nassim Harramein have concluded that atoms have an "event horizon" singularity identical to black holes.

    The triangle is one of the oldest sacred symbols in human history. Here, Triangle Man represents the Illuminati, a global elitist cult who orchestrated the arms races and the wars of the 20th century. During WWII, all corporate-backed governments researched fission and atom smashing. They build the bomb. Triangle wins. Triangle man.

    Universe man is the Creator, the conscious life behind the universe. The creator loves particle man, and indeed love is what binds our universe together. This is consistent with mystical teachings throughout history from St. John of the Cross to the Dali Llama. When the Minute hand, Millennium hand, and Eon hand line up, it's a "Happy Land", a new age.

    Person man, person man, hit on the head with a class war. "Common man" represents 95% of the world's population and rising. The global elite have forced them all to live in garbage cans. Now with total control, there is nothing to stop the Illuminati from establishing a permanent slave class. We had a class war, and Triangle won.

    Triangle Man hates Person Man. This basic principle, when understood, can explain many of the inequities and atrocities of the past century on Planet Earth.
