: At first people thought light was propagated by particles, then by waves. Now we know it depends on the way you try to measure it. Sometimes it acts like a particle, other times it acts like a wave. Our current description of gravity (general relativity) uses waves, the theory for particulate propagation is not well formed. We won't have a full understanding of gravity untill the wave and particle theories come to terms. That theory would be called a quantum theory.
