    I just read this two minutes ago while reseaching the "standard kilogram".... so I'll post it here for reference:

    What is the cause of mass? forces? time? gravity? nobody really knows....it's a characteristic of our universe...and without any of them we'd not be here to observe and question. We can't even figure out yet why we have the fundamental particles that we observe.
