Matter is everything that is in the universe. The universe is what you see in the sky at night. So that’s a lot of material. Matter makes up everything in our universe.

It is known that matter is essentially composed of vacuum, even heavy matter. The Higgs Boson creates a field and gravity that prevents matter from overlapping. It is known that there is a lot of emptiness since the twentieth century. So it’s recent.

The universe is also in a vacuum. We wonder how it can hold up. The universe allows us to see how we are made with the light that comes from the sky’s stars and from our sun, the sun that is a star.

Materialists believe that everything that makes up our universe is in matter. But in this case, the universe should have broken apart to give nothing.

My Notes

Look at a periodic elements’ table.
