Energy is something we see and feel everyday but yet most of us still have little clue as to what it truly is. In school we were taught that energy cannot be created or destroyed. It can only be transformed into one form or another. We were also told that there are many types of energy and that we need it to do work. These definitions of energy are quite accurate, but they do not tell us the true nature of energy. In order to understand its true nature and how it is essential for our well-being, we must see energy as a living and intelligent being.
