    Why the energy is there at the beginning. Why not? Haha...

    Well, this is the only way a physicist can react to such a question. Physicists just can't answer the questions the topic of which does not belong to their field.

          Today’s scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality. - Nikola Tesla

            should have added a 6th category before the 9 year old that had an English teacher. you know cause they don't understand logic or anything that isn't purposely confusing
