How Can Energy Be Created From Nothing? At EnergyFreedomToday, we help people who love energy freedom by collating information and news about energy alternatives and energy freedom. At first glance, creating something from nothing seems impossible. After all, science tells us that energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can only converted from one form to another. That is why many physicists were stunned when it became clear that the quantum vacuum is filled with particles appearing and disappearing at random, something seen both in particle accelerators as well as simple laboratory setups using graphene.
