How can something be massless?

  • #51
Because mass isn't fundamental. Newton thought mass was a fundamental. It was at the bottom of everything. He was wrong. There is no conservation of mass. Newton thought you could never get any more mass than what you put in.

I am reading Wilczek's book on this right now.
