The Dynamic Gravitation of Photons from the Perspective of Maxwell’s Wave Equations

ABSTRACT

Although the gravitational constant (*G*)
does not explicitly occur in the Maxwell Wave Equations, this paper will show
that *G* is indeed implicitly contained
in them. The logical consequence hereby is that electromagnetic radiation is
associated with dynamic gravitation and not—as assumed in Einstein’s Special Theory of
Relativity—with
“static” gravitation, dynamic gravitation being at the time unknown. According
to the Maxwell Wave Equations, gravitation experiences the same dynamic (speed
of light *c*) as electromagnetic
radiation and must therefore also be of a quantum nature. There must exist an
equal number of gravitational quanta as there are photons. Since photons do not
possess a baryonic rest mass but only a relativistic mass, this mass must be
nonbaryonic in nature—precisely as their dynamic gravitation.
