    In the natural universe, the only situation I know of where it is really arguable that energy is consistently converted into matter is at the event horizon of a black hole, where hawking radiation is produced from potential energy. Even then, many people think it is actually the conversion of matter into energy :shrug: .

    How about when people absorb sunlight and get their vitamin D? Does that count as a real world example?

    Sunlight radiation causes a chemical reaction in the skin that converts other substances into Vitamin D. The energy is a trigger (like turning on the burner on your cooktop to caramelize onions), not the source of the vitamin.
