CL: do believe that light is a form of the electromagnetic field right?

Wayne: CL......I don't think we have a quantum grasp of "pure light" any more than we have a quantum theory for gravity.

CL: Then light is a force, am I correct? (afterall it does knock electrons from metals to create solar power)

Wayne: Is it the light, or the heat generated as a result of the light that knocks the electrons off.

CL:All force is a form of mechanical energy and therefore light is energy. All energy has a corresponding mass inversly prorportional to the spped of light squared. All mass attracts all other mass. We call this gravity. So wouldn't be almost paradoxical to say that gravity has no effect on light which has energy?

Wayne: We still don't have a profound understanding of light or gravity, so I see it as premature to assume that all force is a form of "mechanical" energy. It is presumed the universe started with heat beyond our comprehention, and zero matter. So what was the "energy" source for that heat.

CL:Would you then say that light can escape from a blackhole?

Wayne: I have come to the conclusion that space-time does not bend or warp. So, since that eliminates the prospect of there being black holes or singularities, the answer is yes. By the way I arrived at this conclusion through principles of math, not by listening to some hairbrained TV preacher.
