  1. It is possible to understand matter, but it is impossible to visualize it, because this concept embraces an infinite set of forms. Both known to us and unknown, both having an image in space and time, and not having it (for example, a physical vacuum). As for the available language: the words are common, but philosophy requires a high level of generalizing thinking, and this is a late product of evolution and, alas, is not accessible to everyone. Lenin's definition is well known, and I will simplify it a little and adjust it to the current state of science: Matter is a philosophical category for denoting objective reality, which (reality) can exist independently of our consciousness, and can, in its specific products, be perceived by sensation. Each element in this definition is not random, but for an explanation, you would have to write a chapter from the textbook. See also other answers to the Q question on matter.
