That's an interesting theory, but there's theories that propose the exact opposite of what I got out of that article; namely that mass is
high frequency electromagnetic energy. If you raise the frequency you're essentially raising the mass. The equations used for this are
pretty simple:
E = mc^2
E =
hf
(therefore)
m = (
hf)/(c^2)
(pardon the notation; the formatting here leaves a lot to be desired for writing equations...)
The first part is the familiar Einstein equation; the second part is Planck's (?) equation for determining the energy in a given frequency. Using
basic algebra, even a small particle such as a proton has an extraordinarily high frequency.
Of course, I could've completely misunderstood the point the article was trying to present...wouldn't be the first time
EDIT:
h is Planck's constant, an extremely small number (I forget the exact figure), and of course c is the speed of light...
