That of which anything is composed; constituent substance; material; the material or substantial part of anything; the constituent elements of conception; that into which a notion may be analyzed; the essence; the pith; the embodiment.
This term describes substances present in oils and fats which are not glycerides and are resistant to saponification by strong alkali. Unsaponifiable matter is usually expressed as a percentage of the whole.
matter: the densest form of energy, made up of atoms (mostly composed of the subatomic particles protons, electrons and neutrons), which are the building blocks of all chemicals, minerals, and organic forms in the third dimension. Matter makes up the physical bodies of stars, planets, and other celestial bodies, and ranges from solid to liquid to gas and plasma, and many other forms.
The feminine (negative) polarity of the Godhead, of which the masculine (positive) polarity is Spirit. Matter acts as a chalice for the kingdom of God and is the abiding place of evolving souls. Matter is distinguished from matter (lowercase m)â€”the substance of the earth earthy, of the realms of maya, which blocks rather than radiates divine light and the Spirit of the I AM THAT I AM. See also Mother; Spirit.
Matter is any physical substance. In contrast, energy is a non-physical quantity. Einstein's famous formula, E=mc2, introduced a revolutionary relationship between matter and energy. Before his discovery, matter and energy were assumed to be completely separate quantities. But Einstein theorized that at the smallest levels, matter and energy are interchangeable.
The material out of which all ordinary material is made. Protons, neutrons, and electrons are examples of matter, as is a piece of wood, a puddle of water, or an animal or plant. All matter has the properties that it occupies a volume and has inertia. The measure of the amount of matter in an object is that object's mass. See also
anything that occupies space. Usually defined by describing its states and properties: solid, liquid, or gas; possesses mass, inertia, color, density, melting point, hardness, crystal form, mechanical strength, or chemical properties. Composed of atoms .
Any substance that occupies space and has mass: the material of which the universe is made. It normally exists in the three states of gas, liquid or solid. Plasma is considered to be a forth state but it only exists at very high temperatures e.g., in stars.
An aggregate material particles possessing inertia and capable of occupying space; matter and energy are regarded as equivalents, mutually convertible according to Einsteinâ€˜s formula, E = mc2 (i.e., energy equals mass multiplied by the square of the velocity of light).
That which has traditionally been contrasted with form or with mind. In the philosophy of materialism, matter is the substance and basis of all reality, and is usually conceived of in the spirit of atomism. In Newtonian physics, matter, distinguished by mass and extension, was contrasted with energy. According to relativity theory, mass and energy are mutually transformable, and material systems are now regarded as forms of energy.
Material substance that occupies space, has mass and is composed of atoms consisting of protons, neutrons and electrons that constitutes the observable universe, and that is interchangeable with energy.
Any substance that has weight or mass and occupies space. All matter is made up of individual atoms or groups of atoms known as molecules. Individual atoms are classified as elements, the building blocks of matter.
A physical substance, having mass and occupying space. At its most basic level matter consists of fundamental particles such as electrons and quarks. Quarks are the fundamental building blocks of protons and neutrons which are the components of atomic nuclei.
Matter is the term used to describe the substance of which all living and non-living things are made. It has mass and can be experienced with our senses. Matter is made up of atoms which group together to form molecules. Matter can be in the form of a solid, a liquid, or a gas. At exceedingly high temperatures, the atoms of matter are shaken apart creating a state of matter called plasma. Our Sun and other stars are in the plasma state.
passing through matter, as a seance-room phenomenon is well known and has been frequently recorded. It is involved in the marvel of apports and transportation of the human body and its observation under test conditions would help towards the recognition of these greater phenomena. See MATTER.

That with regard to, or about which, anything takes place or is done; the thing aimed at, treated of, or treated; subject of action, discussion, consideration, feeling, complaint, legal action, or the like; theme.
Or Form or Thing. The Sanskrit word is Rupa. It is defined as that which has resistence, or which changes and disappear, i.e., the phenomenal. There are inner and outer forms representing the organs and objects of sense respectively. Rupa is one of the Six Bahya-ayatanna or Six Gunas and also one of the Five Skandhas.
In philosophy, matter usually means matter in the sense of physics, but there are older meanings, such as prime matter constituting a formless substratum of all things, which exists only potentially and from which reality is produced. In the sense of content, matter is also used in contrast to form.
Matter was a technical grindcore band formed in the town of Lewes north of Brighton in the 1998. The band (excluding vocalist Dom Lawson) had been playing as a group for a couple of years and had been searching for a singer. Until a mutual friend had recommended Dom Lawson to James Burt who went to see him play bass/vocals in his band No Legs.
The first real to which is reducible all the reality, with the exception of reals belonging to the aither. Its being is, always and any way, dynamic. That kept present also goes when it shows (in a few inorganic forms) an external stability. The biosphere represents his most progressive form and in it the man's idema represents, at least for the moment, the highest evolution degree reached by the matter itself.
