We're 99.9999999% empty space, a grain of dust exploded and then held together by massive amounts of energy. A kilogram of matter has more energy than hundreds of atomic bombs. A pair of shoes. A few potatoes. A King James Bible.

 

E=mc²

 

The energy of anything is: the thing's mass times the speed of light, times the speed of light again.

 

Multiplying a Bible times the speed of light seems totally whacko. It is whacko! The universe is so exciting.

 

Joules = 1 kilogram x 300,000,000 m/s x 300,000,000 m/s

 

joules = 90,000,000,000,000,000

 

A joule is a watt per second. If you divide it by 60 watts, a decent Bible can power your bedroom light for fifty million years.
