Why does E=mc²?
Are you arguing that 16 + 16 cannot equal 32 and 8 * 4 cannot equal 32 and 64 / 2 cannot equal 32 and the square root of 1024 cannot equal 32 and 42 - 10 cannot equal 32 because only 64 = 64. Because that is what your question is asking.

I can't tell if you are being sincere with your question. I personally think you are confusing the concepts of abbreviations and variables. In your examples, Na and Cl are abbreviations for the names of elements. They are a type of shorthand that chemists created to help describe the work that they do. They mean very specific items in the chemical world. You pointed out yourself they also used a special kind of shorthand to show that a conversion takes place - the arrow. But in this case "E" is a variable in the model of a scientific idea and if you were to go read the scientific papers that Einstein wrote to explain the theory of relativity you would see that that "E" has a very specific meaning in this case. In fact, look at all the different meaning "E" or "e" can have in different subject areas. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E_(disambiguation)
