  • $\begingroup$ There is no difference between one electron or another. They are indistinguishable. This is the starting point of this idea. $\endgroup$ – AWanderingMind May 27 at 7:18

    $\begingroup$ Note that "the statement exists" and "the statement is true" are different things. This is cm important concept to study and understand, but that doesn't mean it's true. $\endgroup$ – Emilio Pisanty May 27 at 7:20

  • $\begingroup$ A universe with only one electron wouldn't make any sense,so I suspect you have misunderstood whoever said something like that. What they probably meant was that one electron is exactly like another,so if you have seen one (metaphorically speaking) you have seen them all. $\endgroup$ – Michael Walsby May 27 at 7:57
