From NewScientist - Physics & Math by Stephen Battersby: Matter is built on flaky foundations. Physicists have now confirmed
that the apparently substantial stuff is actually no more than
fluctuations in the quantum vacuum.
researchers simulated the frantic activity that goes on inside protons
and neutrons. These particles provide almost all the mass of ordinary
proton (or neutron) is made of three quarks - but the individual masses
of these quarks only add up to about 1% of the proton's mass. So what
accounts for the rest of it?

...and since Matter <=> Energy ==> Vacuum fluctuations (ZPE) = Energy (lots of it!) ...read the XSF proposal below to see how we can prove that conversion of Vacuum fluctuations into useful Energy has already been accomplished!

Destiny comes to those who listen and faith
finds the rest ...
