Is it safe to say that since the photon interacts with the gravitational field, it emits gravitons? If this is so, then the photon will kinda fizzle out into pure gravity; actualy....... everything in the known universe that has energy will be turned into pure gravity. Also...... can two gravitons interact, or (since they are simply the quantized piece of a gravity wave) can they have constructive/destructive interference? Are they subject to a doppler shift? Sorry to ask so many questions but no amount of deductive thinking can answer these questions for myself......

Thanx Zephram!

P.S. Refering to the web sight above.......just to make sure I'm getting a correct basis in understanding physics equations, does the terms "dy^2" and "dz^2" stand for spacial axis in for dimensional space-time? Does "d" stand for distance in this case?
