This article discusses the muon to proton mass ratio and nearly equal volumetric ratios in simple patterns. Those volumetric ratios arise when equal small spheres are closely packed inside larger spheres.  We compare that to other particle mass ratios and corresponding sphere volume ratios - where spheres are packed around smaller ones; not inside of them.  We discuss several aspects of all above relationships, related realities and analogies for our key 'particle zoo creatures'.  We explore some possible implications beyond analogies.
