What does "to be contiguous" mean? The context: Dying atoms are contiguous with living atoms but their mass is much heavier, of a weight beyond what I everthought possible.

In this context it means that they are touching or next to each other. So this sentence is saying that dying and living atoms are not separate.

An example: "the Southern Ocean is contiguous with the Atlantic Ocean"
