E = mc

What is the mystery of matter and energy?

Einstein's famous equation says it all...

Energy and matter are equivalent,

With the speed of light factored in.

Why is the speed of light factored in?

Because *moving* *energy* is the basic fabric on which this Cosmos is built.

In other words, this reality we experience is constructed from moving energy.

So any fundamental description of this reality must include the speed at which this energy moves.

So how does matter fit into this picture?

To answer that question, we can rearrange Einstein's equation to look like this...

= mc

c

E

The great quantum physicist David Bohm said...

Simplifying the equation above, easily shows the validity of his statement...as the two factors for the speed of light cancel each other out...

= m(c)(c)

E

E = m

In other words, when energy is not moving (*radiating*) through space, it creates the equivalent of what we call matter. *Nonradiating energy, is what we perceive as solid objects*. Thus...
