So just to continue a little more on "perceptions" the days when people believed that everything revolved around Earth not Sun...the planets appeared to be moving in spiral pathways. Once perception of the solar system was corrected, the orbital natures became apparent.

Similarly, now physicists see branes, 12 dimensions, etc. because of their perspective being subjective and within the system.

We are aware of relative movement but not aware of the wave motion that creates time. It is like our reality is built on a moving matrix of surfboards that all move together.

We sense if we become closer or farther from another board but we don't sense the movement on the wave we ride.

Constant motion phenomenon.

This last post brought to mind the interesting phenomenon that happens when you start a song at different points - it can completely change how you perceive the whole song!!

Doing an image search for "carbon bonding electron microscope" will allow you to an actual picture of atoms. It is the 1st image on yahoo image search, as well as google.

Electron Microscopes, as the name suggest use a 'beam' of electrons to scan over very small things. Because electrons turned out to be MUCH smaller than other parts of an atom, they can actually let us see the larger parts.

Additionally you can look into 'matter waves', Bose-Einstein Condensates and of equal interest 'Gravity as a property of entropy' to see more example of how atoms are measured empirically.
The view of potentials until observed isn't as widely held or as concrete as it was just presented.
Also, it more accurate to say that user interaction effects and possibly determines observed interactions. Thus the phenomenon might not be so if it weren't being observed.
