and yet e=mc^^2 can be derived from it. That formula expresses the potential energy of matter, not the mass of photons. If photons had mass, and since they travel at the speed of light, there energy would be infinite. In GR photons do not experience time. They are always at the same point in time. Ordinary logic just does not apply to GR. You need a different theory to support your views.

Sincerely,

Richard
