people are looking for a grand unification theory suppose there isnt one.suppose everthing is just a form of energy. Could it be matter is just a convienient way we describe large clumbs of atoms and molecules. We give things names ,but is that what they are?if we can tell the difference between two things we give them both a name are they not just collections of smaller things and at a certain temperature look a certain way.We say things have a mass because we feel their effect yet electricity and gravity have effects on things and yes we give them a name too .Are not all things just energy in different forms?, matter well its suits us to call everything something
