    Everyone always seems to only ask "where did matter come from?"

    What are your thoughts?

    There is no physical explanation for the existence of the universe. That's simply the realm of philosophy.

    Truly, energy comes from the sun, solar energy or heat. With this, we are able to move machines and organisms are able to do various tasks. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change forms. We get most of our energy from the sun.
