Quote:I agree Jarad.Any thoughts about his statement, "“There must be a great underlying principle that dominates and moves matter.

Quote:Thank you Ravenous, EJN, Ira, and Jarad,The desk gained energy when I shoved it. It lost that extra energy when it collided with the asteroid.On the way (after the shove and before the collision) what was that energy? Was it a something? What was the nature of that something?
