Return me? What's my mind
Connected to? And what's its final purpose?

Domino Waves
If the spatial component of a 4vector is conserved in all inertial frames of reference then it can be shown that the temporal component is also conserved in all inertial frames. 26 Since this the case for P then it follows that mass is conserved in all inertial frames under the conditions specified for Eq. (1).
On the concept of relativistic mass
It should be noted that at no time was energy conservation involved and yet the conservation law for mass can be derived. This is one of the usefulness qualities of relativistic mass.
