(would not allow me to post a follow on message to my question about Creation of Matter)

I have found some of what you covered but you have really help. About the energy budget (being in sci-fi land) I have "solved" it with fusion reactors fueled by H2/He3 mined from the surface of Luna, shipped to a cyclotron formed around a 40km astroid. Far from planetary gravitational influences, a huge fusion reactor to provide power, this cyclotron begins to learn how matter and energy can be altered and controlled/shaped into new tools. Transmission crystals are one of these tools. The cost is far outweighed by the benefits of having instantanious low speed communication from any point within the solar system to another.

The time frame of my story is ~2500 years from now so all this "infrastructure" I am proposing has potential to develop.

The key of interest to me is in your early discription "spark the vacume", which speaks of the quantum soup of which all matter decended. It also hints to alternative dimensions and mini-universes repeatatively expanding and collapsing all too fast or way beyond our current ability to detect.

Has any of the matter created ever lasted long enough to retrieve from the chamber? I assume (mistakenly?) that the high speeds used to make tiny bits of matter have some negative effects in retrieving those elements created. Also are the created atoms destroyed in the detection process? Basically I am asking if anything stable has ever been created by this process and if not, why not.

I want to thank you for the time you put into this response. Let me read up a little more to better frame my next round of questions. I was out on an extended Christmas trip, far from the maddening internet.

Again, thanks
