Energy = mass x C squared. Is that right? Not a mathematician here and I am aware that this post enjoins the company of a lot of mathematically adroit talent. That means I get to ask a question I might get an answer to that I've not previously received an answer for...

In algebraic terms, is it not true that MC2=E? That's not the objective of my question, it's just a check point to see if I'm right in understanding that all factors in an algebraic equation are interchangeable, and no matter how the factors are arranged, the equation maintains its integrity.

If this is so, how is it that E=MC2, without the omnidirectional motion of matter, as C moves omnidirectionally, though at a much greater speed than what I am asking - doesn't matter have to be moving in order for light to be squared out of it? How is light moving omnidirectionally in a value of square, out of something that is - said and perceived to be - unmoving?

The light is omnidirectionally squared out of matter. Matter generates light but is said and perceived to be static and non-expanding.

Whereas, matter is said to be 4-dimensional, making allowance if not requirement for matter to be moving at right angles to all three of its recognized dimensions - where a fourth perpendicular applies to matter itself, corroborating what I believe explains how something that appears to be a static ('standing') field, may in fact be moving omnidirectionally as the light it generates does, but at a much slower speed...

If this reasoning is wrong, might someone please explain why, in the simplest of terms? Might there be a need for me to re-phrase the question?

Thank you for reading this missive.
