Well, I just wanted some input on the fact whether light is considered matter or not. Right now, light is not considerd as matter, but if light is not matter, then how can it be affected by gravity as in a black hole. The black hole traps the light, as if it took up space and mass and sucked it in. You inputs are duly noted, I thank you in advance.
