I think you missed my point. As a long time student of science, I understand everything you wrote. The problem I have is the idea that after we agree something like a universe or body is made of huge numbers of smaller entities (call them x's) then saying the entire entity is one x. To me that is nonsensical. We would also end up with what seems like an absurd nesting, where if the universe is an electron, then is each electron in the universe its own universe, and every electron in those universes ... ad infinitum. It seems more fantastic than Alice in Wonderland stuff, even if her rabbit hole was a black hole.
