Quick and dirty reverse engineering of the universe with OOP.
Matter = state
Energy = message
Gravity = group
Space Time = reference
Proton = method
Neutron = data
Electron = thread
Atom = instance
Atomic Weight = class
Molecule = application
Life = workspace
Planet = image
Sun = virtual machine
Galaxy = local area network
Universe = wide area network
