You say "Newton's equations are ONLY relative here on earth, no where else do they work as well" Actually, Newton's equations are valid in any weak gravitational field where spacetime is relatively flat.

You say "And there is some so called material in light, it contains both matter and wave-like characteristics." Actually, There is no material in light and light absolutely contains no matter or it would not be able to move at c. m = m0/(1-v2/c2)1/2

Maxwell's equations say Light can viewed as a transverse wave consisting of mutually orthogonal self sustaining electric and magnetic fields. Or more universally correct, light can be considered to be photons which are manifestations of a quantized electromagnetic field and whose energy = hv. Under no circumstances can both wave and particle characteristics be viewed simultaneously
