the main question is, what is EVERYTHING made of, in the most simplified terms. earth, the universe, every and all things that have been discovered by man.
Quarks, Leptons, and Bosons.
It's possible that the "nothing" is the only real something, while the stuff we can see is just ripples on the surface of the "nothing".
Quote from: DC It's possible that the "nothing" is the only real something, while the stuff we can see is just ripples on the surface of the "nothing". David, I suspect you are being provocative there; or are you going to tell us how nothing can have a surface, or have ripples?

I have done some research on the subject and I have found that space is essentially "nothing", the things we can touch are made of matter or energy, ...
It is important to realize that in physics today, we have no knowledge of what energy is. We do not have a picture that energy comes in little blobs of a definite amount. It is not that way. However, there are formulas for calculating some numerical quantity, and we add it all together it gives “28” - always the same number. It is an abstract thing in that it does not tell us the mechanism or the reasons for the various formulas.
...still a bit confused, I guess in the mind of a scientist, to get a 100 percent definite answer can not happen because we are always digging farther and farther, but as of now, in this time period, what do we know?
