It is somewhat surprising to me that your theory does not include mass-energy equivalence. There is so much evidence that supports the MEE principle that it is difficult for any model to deny MEE.

For example, there is a well-known mass defect the represents of the binding energy of all elements and isotopes above hydrogen. Measurements of mass show this mass defect and the fusion of stars and supernovae as well as the nuclear energy that warms our planet all depend on MEE. I am afraid...


I deny that E=M.

I defined mass. I work with defined properties. Mass is currently officially an undefined property. I have unofficially defined it and put it to use.

"When a ball drops to the floor, isn't that a measure of mass? If you are saying that mass is something in which we must simply believe, I am there as long as you stipulate that action is also something in which you must simply believe. As axioms, their only definitions are with each other or themselves."
