I'd be interested if you could fill me in with the rest mass of, say, an up quark.

Well, I have to look up this one. But the question was if mass is quantised.
I thougth something that has mass is called matter. So is matter quantised?
I remember reading Feynman saying that if there were just one fact he could pass to a next science generation, it would be that the universe is build out of discrete particles. So before resorting to higher math, we should consider this rather simple insight.
And going to quark level or even lower, what is mass or energy anyway?

I'm just asking questions.
