comment Is Angular Momentum truly fundamental?
Sure, but then you could just say the spin is carried over from the intrinsic spin of the fundamental particles...

comment Is Angular Momentum truly fundamental?
@IncnisMrsi: I know composite particles also have spin, but the point is, one could envisage that arising from angular momentum by motion, and not "intrinsically".

comment What is spin as it relates to subatomic particles?
@حكيمالفيلسوفالضائع, yes they are for all intents and purposes. Certainly in traditional QM they are. In QFT, there are no particles at all really; particles are just conceptual approximations... but you're over-simplifying things. Something tells me you're just a reader of pop-science and think you understand it because of that.

comment Is it possible to obtain gold through nuclear decay?
@ChrisWhite: Yes, fair point, you are right of course. But the point remains that fusion produces elements necessarily heavier than gold (greater in number of nucleons) that are then able to decay into Au atoms.
