What’s ‘e Matter You, ey?
You are ‘e matter, that which occupies space and possesses rest mass. what is matter – Bing
One More Minute, please.
“E equals mc squared may be the most famous equation in the world, but what you might not know is that it isn’t the whole story. It just describes objects that have mass and that aren’t moving. The full equation is E squared equals mc squared squared plus p times c squared, where p represents the momentum of the object in question.” The complete formula of Mass-energy equivalence explained | Britannica
And of course, that mass of You on the couch is moving atop the mass of the planet hurdling through space…
You Should Feel Better About Yourself Already
Remember, You always have momentum (the quantity of motion of a moving body, measured as a product of its mass and velocity — motion is determined by dividing the distance covered by the time it takes to travel that distance. how do you measure movement – Bing
About that Minute…
If You are always moving in some way, even if just molecularly, your matter is subject to the effects of time, irrevocably following the arrow of time from the present into the future…
This is why your Beauty is timeless, but You are not.
“…O Attic shape! Fair attitude! with brede
Of marble men and maidens overwrought,
With forest branches and the trodden weed;
Thou, silent form, dost tease us out of thought
As doth eternity: Cold Pastoral!
When old age shall this generation waste,
Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe
Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say’st,
“Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.”
“Physicists define time as the progression of events from the past to the present into the future. Basically, if a system is unchanging, it is timeless. Time can be considered to be the fourth dimension of reality, used to describe events in three-dimensional space. It is not something we can see, touch, or taste, but we can measure its passage.” What Is Time? A Simple Explanation (thoughtco.com)
Time isn’t Matter, but Time Matters

You are more than the sum of your parts (first attributable to Aristotle, they say, back in the day Aristotle’s Metaphysics (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy).
