convertible to energy. We haven't so far seen the electron itself being
converted into energy. The nuclear energy that we know is merely release

accounts for some minor variations in masses of electrons and protons
themselves when they are within or outside of an atom. When individual
devas and their actions are mentioned these statements must be resolved
