Kinetic Energy

Consider a material particle P, described by its rest mass $m$ and momentum $p$. Definition: the kinetic energy of P is the number

$\begin{align} K \equiv \frac{\, p^{ 2}}{2m} \end{align}$

Since $m > 0$ for material particles, the kinetic energy is never negative. And in an inertial frame of reference, the momentum is proportional to the wavevector $\, \overline{\kappa} \,$, so that $K$ is proportional to $\kappa ^{2}$. Then recall that the wavenumber depends only on the coefficients of dynamic quarks. So the kinetic energy depends strongly on P's dynamic quark content.

Sensory interpretation: Dynamic quarks and the wavenumber have already been interpreted as representations of somatic and visual sensations. So the kinetic energy depends strongly on audio-visual sensations.
