The beauty of Einstein’s well-known equation lies in its simplicity. Energy (E) and mass (M) are patterns of space. Energy is a traveling wave that moves in a linear direction at the speed of light (c). Energy has no mass. Imagine that traveling waves of space interact spontaneously to form a standing wave, resulting in the creation of a fundamental particle. Each of the particle’s component waves travels in a cyclical path within a confined region. Together, the combined motions form a particle (or mass) vibrating at c squared (c2). As traveling waves become standing waves, energy is converted to particles. And the converse is true. When matter reaches a specific energy threshold, particles instantly devolve back into traveling waves. Energy and matter are interchangeable. They are different configurations of the same fundamental motions of space.
