## Conservation of Energy

In the multiverse of QCI Theory, particles, matter, and energy can disappear, vanishing from space and time. In our universe, the principle of "conservation of energy" prevailes, stipulating that the total energy content of the universe remains constant. While energy might change forms--for example, sunlight enters a solar panel, transforming into electrical energy--the total amount of energy is strictly constant.

In the parallel universes of QCI, however, this principle is violated. In some alternate realities, energy can disappear, and new matter and energy can appear from nothingness. This bizarre property is a result of a unique feature of the QCI metaverse: particles essentially behave as if they possess an

While the notion of imaginary mass might seem bizarre, this notion is supported by the underlying mathematics of QCI Theory--when we generalize quantum mechanics by infusing imaginary numbers in the path-averaging process, the resulting equations are
