The word "because" in the above paragraph makes no sense. Do you see what
the problem is?


All this stuff you post about mass is too boring. Try something more
interesting, like, what do you figure is the mechanisms by which particles
get their mass? How does mass manifest itself as inertia? That would be way
cool.

Well it's important that matter is recognized as being discrete, not
continuous, and that what we we see is gravitating and evolving, and
cannot gravitate forever.

It's not important at all, just that some sort of particles are
required in any kinetic theory of matter, and they cannot be completely
elastic; or completely inelastic.

An arrangement of charges, in a sea of EM energy, that provide magnetic
moment. Getting closer together, reduces the magnetic moment of the
*system* of particles. Or not.


Yep.

Oh. OK, I am starting to see what you mean now.
Intermediate elasticity is the key... Ummm... OK, gota go.
Thanks Don.

Toldja once already: Planetary masses get more massive by evolving:
collecting mass by the process put forth by leSage.
A body's mass, or inertia, manifests itself as the resistance to
changes in its shape, and/or changes in its motion: Where the
resistance to a change in its motion is proportional to the impulse -
the product of the force and its duration - exerted on and/or by it,
divided by the rate of displacement that it causes.
I can't make it cooler than that and maintain a straight face.

Don.

No, that does not the mechanisms by which particles get their mass. That
just explanes (in a mythical kind of way) how planets might become more
massive - by accumulation of mass. I was asking about how subatomic
particles take on the property of mass. That is a much more fundamental
question. BTW... who the heck is LeSage. He sounds like a crank.


You gave a classical definition of inertia (with a few extra oddities
added). That is not what I am asking. I am asking how mass and inertia are
related in terms of particle physics. You are way too stuck in late 17th
century physics to even comprehend what I am asking. But that's OK... lets
just let it go...

I had an armchair like that, once - an old overstuffed wingback. I
kept it for a while even though it had acquired an odor, but I threw it
out when I discovered there were living things that had taken up
residence therein.
