Re: Bend the rules, don't break them
if a seed - very small - was planted eons ago and then triggered to "sprout" so to speak the resulting mass might appear to come from nothing
Cresating new mass of any appreciable quantity requires a metric fuckton of energy. See the calculation earlier in the thread.
But if this were some sort of "seed" growing in the way we've seen seeds grow before, then there is no increase in mass whatsoever - the mass is transformed in state, not in quantity.
