As I see, you have yet to avail us of anything substantial as to the depth of your "Knowledge".
If you were to offer a valid theory regarding "your" perspective, then I'm sure that we could talk it over.
I am willing to see all side of an argument.
As of yet, the only think you have convinced and or proven is your lack of "knowledge".
If you are so interested in these subjects, it would bode well to at least consider something outside of your normal perspective.
I am going to be frank with you,
I really enjoy debates with people like you.
It allows me the opportunity to expand my own knowledge.
Bashing heads against a posts, serve no purpose other than injury.
So once again I'll reiterate, (put up or shut up).
Now as far as energy and matter go:
Consider this example:
Water, has more than one state, do we agree on that?
OK then, in normal state water is a liquid, at lower temperatures, it's a solid, at higher temps it's a vapor/gas, at higher temps and pressure it
becomes a fluid like gas, with characteristics of both.
When superheated and under almost immeasurable pressure, it becomes another form of ice, but this ice is scorching hot.(That was only recently
The point is, all these states of water are in essence the same thing. Water.
They may be water but they are also what they're called.
Matter may be a condensed form of energy, but it is not energy until acted upon by a catalyst to release the stored energy of that matter.
Ever burn something(other than this thread)?
The matter breaks down, and heat(energy), light(energy) and constituent components such as carbon(matter), silicon(matter), and gasses(matter) are
It is said that matter cannot be destroyed, and neither can energy, but they can exchange properties between one another.
So much like WATER energy and matter have the same potential to take differing states.
We await some constructive input, or are you going to continue to badger us.
If so, then I suggest you be content in your own understanding and stop trying to convince anyone else.
Nothing personal, but I'm tired of wasting my time, if you won't even entertain valid and plausible arguments.
Says a lot about me considering how much effort I have wasted on you already.
