Ok.......I see why you would say that it was gibberish, but, like I said I am bad with words when it comes to explaining things. The stuff between the atom nucleus and the electron cloud is quantum foam. (however you want to say it or whatever terms you use.....I call it quantum foam because that's how I learned it.) Now, matter how small you get, the stuff is still there, even if there are a bagillion planck lengths present. To say that it isn't there would be like saying there are no people on the Earth when looking, with the naked eye, at the Earth from Mars. They are just to small to see but they are still there. So there is quantum foam "inside" the atom whether it's at the planck length or not. The question that I answered was asking if between the nucleus and the electrons was nothingness. Quantum physics says that there is no "true" vaccume due to uncertainty. So my reply was that it was quantum foam.
