"Particles can form simple swarms with simple behaviours. They can exist in a complex system with simple rules, generating complex behaviours. They can be active individuals and steadfast obstacles. They can wear disguises, and trick us into thinking they are something else. A single particle may be the tail of a comet, the extrusion of a point, they can act under the surface without ever being seen directly ...so many possibilities."
--Kristin Henry
