First of all, if anything in this post is incorrect I'm sorry. My physics is still developing and I hope to learn a lot here! So, E=MC^2 states that mass can be converted directly in to energy, and a he'll of a lot of it, correct? However, energy cannot be created or destroyed, only distributed, also correct? So, does this mean mass can not be directly created, or does E=MC^2 simply provide an imbalance of energy that can't be explained? I would like an explanation because this has been bugging me for a while now :). Thank you everyone, hope you understand what I'm trying to say!
