comment The time component is $\gamma m c$, so shouldn't $E=mc$?
oh okay. in the question i had it differentiated as time and spatial components. now I see they are all subsumed by the label momentum component. more intuitive just means using many more words to support and explain your equations

I'm going to wait for a more intuitive explanation. Also $\gamma m v$ is momentum. $\gamma m c$ is time component.

so what makes $mc^2$ energy? just multiplying by a constant...
