From the point of view of the worm living inside that apple, it looks more like the tree has been cut from the apple (a bit like the famous, though, sadly, probably apocryphal, 1950's British newspaper headline, "Fog in the Channel - continent cut off!").

I am reminded of that old joke about the guy who painted the sides of his car with different colours. When his puzzled friends asked him why, he replied it was to confuse eye witnesses in case of a collision. You may say the "objective reality" is that the car is painted with different colours. I say that "reality" is just as subjective as any other and requires a frame of reference inaccessible to the eye witnesses on the ground.
In particle accelerators atoms are indeed not only touching each others. But banging together in a massive explosive orgasm.
