Are you claiming that the Newtonian worldview is violating energy conservation? (Mass deficit being something that's not present in a Newtonian worldview.) If you are talking physical objects, I agree with you, but you'll have to ask Icarus2. "You cannot have fewer than zero electrons, so positive charges do not exist." But what if it's made out of different stuff? Something with negative mass? (Again, talk to Icarus2.) So you agree with me there are cases where it appears there's negative energy? Good! Glad we got that cleared up! And some valued senior forum members too!
