The human body is made out of atoms that are connected in such a way so to create molecules, molecules into macromolecules, DNA and lastly - the cell. A great number of cells form complicated connections between them in order to create a more complex biological system. But let's talk about about the atom,  what is it made of.


- The atom has a nucleus made up from protons and neutrons and electrons "floating" around it. The electron is not actually a particle, because as Leonard Susskind said - it doesn't have a mass in  standard model. The electron can be viewed as a small aggregation of energy. The nucleus of the atom and the electrons around it are being held into a "whole" called an "atom" thanks to the electromagnetic force that exist in the space between the nucleus and the electrons of the atom. This space is more or less "empty", meaning it is not solid. Therefore the atom is made out of 99.99% "empty" space, but somehow manages to create solid objects and this is thanks to the incredible fast movement of the electrons around the nucleus, or its quantum superposition. According to Johan Mauritsson, an assistant professor in atomic physics at the Faculty of Engineering, Lund University, it takes about 150 attoseconds for an electron to circle the nucleus of an atom. An attosecond is related to a second as a second is related to the age of the universe ( or we can just say that it is everywhere around the nucleus at the same time )


The electron (aggregation of energy) that is moving around the nucleus appears as it is all around it simultaneously. Meaning, if the atom was big enough for you to try and put your finger into the emtpy space between the nucleus and the electrons around it, you wouldn't be able to do so, because the electrons would be everywhere around that "empty space" and your finger would experience a solid "wall" made out of the electrons' "movement". The proton and the neutron, that create the nucleus, are made out of "quarks". The proton is made out of 2 "up quarks" and 1 "down quark", while the neutron is made out of 1 "up quark" and 2 "down quarks". 

The quarks are held together due to the "gluons", thus the existence of protons and neutrons becomes possible. You can view quarks similarly to the electrons - a concentrated energy; and the gluons as a "force" that holds the quarks together (actually the quarks are the ones that can emit "gluons" in the same way that electrons can emit "photons"). 
The quarks do not have the mass that the protons and neutrons appear to have. The quarks have more than 100 times less mass than the protons and neutrons, which they create appear to have. Their movement inside the protons and neutrons give the illusion that the nucleus have mass, hence E=mc2.


An atom - the particle that creates everything is just an aggregation of different types of energies being held together by electromagnetism. So if the atom is nothing more than energy could that mean the DNA molecules, cells and every complex biological system, are just energies which interact in a very complex way? - I personally DO NOT believe that humans, animals and every form of organism (even plants and rocks for that matter) are just aggregation of "atomic energy". It is no coincidence that the human body without a consciousness is called "dead matter" by biologists. The energy, which creates the human body is more like a suit that is being used for experiencing this reality which vibrates on a very low frequency and this is the reason why it appears as solid. The "thing" that uses and gives life to the suit we call "body" is given different names by different civilizations, scientists, tribes, spiritual teachers like Buddha, Christ, etc. - "soul", "consciousness", "the higher self", etc. 

Yes this reality do exist as solid, even though it is created from just energy, but it is not a separate reality - it is part of the whole. If our eyes were not only able to see 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and all of our senses could experience realities on different frequencies and vibrations, how different the world would be?
