The Concept of Mass as Interfering Photons, and the Originating Mechanism of Gravitation

Authors: DT Froedge

For most purposes in physics the concept of mass particles and photons are treated as though they are completely separate and distinct entities having little connection accept through collision interactions. This paper explores the concept of a mass particle being viewed as a pair of trapped photons in a mass-less box demonstrating proper relativistic dynamics, Lorentz covariance, and gravitational properties. The mechanism of trapping of the photons in the particle is not herein defined; however the lack of sufficient spin to properly constitute a photon would be a containment factor. Although this presentation is primarily focused on electrons, presumably it would be applicable to any particle with primary constituents consisting of particles that travel at light speed along null vectors. This illustrates the concept of the equivalence of mass and energy, and why mass velocity cannot exceed the speed of light. It is asserted and illustrated; that the gravitational effect on particles and photons can be can be effectuated by a simple gradient in the speed of light. This allows the assertion that gravitation is a local alteration of c generated by the presence of matter and could be a QFT effect.
