. . . and it's concepts like this that make my brain go 'splodey when it comes to science. I am endlessly fascinated by science, especially astronomy and all that, and I understand simple concepts (chemical change, physical change, Newton's Laws, gravity, etc.), but some sciency stuff just escapes me. How can something give mass to something? Things have mass -- why does there have to be something to give mass to them?? How does this something "give" mass? I do understand the difference between mass and weight: mass is how dense something is, weight is how much it . . . well . . .weighs. Would something with greater mass have more Higgs Boson particles than something with lesser mass? And where exactly would the Higgs Boson particles be -- in the atoms? Atoms on their own?

Maybe after we're Raptured, I'll be able to understand it all.
