This is a cheese atom ...[attachment=16205]modern model of atom here ... http://daugerresearch.com/orbitals/index.shtml
Everything decays eventually to a lower energy state - the time scale for stable isotopes of atoms is enormous though (way longer than universe so far obviously).
Interesting thought -- I wonder if there's such a thing as "spontaneous" E=mc². It obviously doesn't happen often, but "poof", an atom appears or disappears. Just one of those quirky physical science things. We can call it the Cheesy Atom Phenomenon ("CAP" for short).
