Mass as anti-energy

  1. Mar 11, 2012 #1
    To what extent is fair to say that mass is anti-energy or the opposite of energy?

    Energy makes "things" move
    Mass makes "things" resist movement

    I have always had trouble understanding energy, mostly because it is not located in a particle, rather it is some abstract description of objects and what objects have. I'm starting to think that mass is equally abstract.

    category justification: I put this in the high energy section since it deals with energy and mass.

    This looks to me like wordplay not physics.
