@jose-gear,
There are only two kinds of things in the whole entire world that we know about. One is energy. And if it ain't energy, then it's matter. And dyslexia is also right -- it's just another word for stuff.

@jose-gear,
Yes, the common definition for "matter" is anything that has "mass".

Unfortunately this question of where mass comes from gives physicists quite a headache-- which makes the definition of "matter" quite unsatisfactory.

Stuff is as good a definition as anything.

Matter and Energy are two forms of the same thing... E=mc^2 will convert you between the two...
