Mass and energy vibrate?

  1. Aug 14, 2008 #1
    does it make sense to say that the reason mass is energy is because they are both vibrations,
    which are distinguished because they occur on different spatial and temporal scales?
    and can position-momentum uncertainty be conceptualized as a frequency-amplitude uncertainty?

    Like others ... I don't know.
    I'm sure that you are aware that Higgs is the favoured bet.
    Let wait and see what CERN delivers.
