Matter/Energy is never created or destroyed. It just changes form.
Just call me Dr. Manhattan.
Ah, a fan of Helmholtz, are you? Actually, matter is destroyed (splitting atoms, for example). Only energy might possibly be eternal, provided that Newton's initial assumption was correct which has not yet been proven beyond doubt. So far it's only the generally accepted theory.
^Well, if energy is eternal, then the universe doesn't have a beginning. We can only say that the Big Bang led to the PRESENT STATE of the universe, but the universe is eternal. Or the multiverse is eternal. Or the ominiverse? This is heavy.
Is there a problem with gravity in the future?
I have to think who is that when I see some people at the moment. I'm kinder around.
That's like saying if I cut my bacon sandwich up in to quarters it's no-longer a bacon sandwich.
I don't want to shit on your wedding, but seriously, matter/energy isn't ever destroyed. I'm not talking about just matter here. I'm talking about the total mass-ergy of a system. See right here.
Spitting an atom up or even changing protons in to neutrons (and positrons and neutrinos, i.e. beta radiation decay which changes the atomic number of an element) doesn't destroy it, it just changes its form. The total energy in a system remains constant, and the universe is a closed system. Mass is equivalent to energy. Ever heard of E=mc^2? So even when matter and antimatter annihilate producing energy (typically gamma ray photons) the total mass-energy of the system is unchanged, it just changes form.
Who are you anyway? I don't get this holiday names shit.
I'm still around. Kind of. Hi everyone.
Hmm.. lack of caffeine Vert?
Ahh those were the days
I suppose I would be an old timer now, since I've got 10 years in.
Oh, yeah. The decade mark is a definite Old Fogey status symbol around here. Long in the tooth, short in the hairline, wide on the stories about how the board used to be.
^I remember having to walk fifteen miles in the snow just to spam in the lounges, and we were grateful for the opportunity!!!
Get off my lawn! Hard candy costs more than it used to! MY ARTHRITIS!!!
It smells heavy of Aqua Velva in here.
And Aqua Net hairspray that my chain smoking Mom would douse my hair with, a flamethrower potential every minute. Ah, the fond memories of being dragged to church inside a Ford LTD, the windows rolled up as my Mom puffed Winston 100s and my Dad his Chesterfield Kings.
But let me roll down the window to breathe, and I get screamed at for messing up my hair.
I'll have you know that my hairline is fine, although you're right about the teeth, I had my canines replaced with narwhal tusks a few years ago.
I regret nothing!
Gave it up years ago my old mucker. Although I do drink a nice tea from time to time now.
The ladies love the narwhal tusk, I can speak from experience.
Best not to ask.
You so have to explain now.
