Doctor Albrecht Giese worked out the math to show that electromagnetic gravity as we describe it here works well within Quantum Theory. He shows that a simple refraction process in which the path of light bends toward the direction where the speed of light is slower would produce gravity. Not only does it produce gravity, but it explains the strange behavior of gravity that bends the path of light twice as much as it should if photons behave like particles of mass. Sir Author Eddington proposed a similar process in his 1920 paper referenced below.
We should note that Doctor Giese does not subscribe to all the notions we put forth here. If he were to openly embrace all our discoveries he would have difficulty maintaining his position of importance in the scientific community.
All fundamental ideas about the mass of material things agree that mass comes from electromagnetic activity in the material things. We know from the math that the presence of electromagnetic activity impedes additional electromagnetic activity. The sub zero in the equation means in the absence of electric or magnetic charge. The presence of charge increases impedance and slows the speed of light. So gravity impedes gravity. Thank about that. Present cosmological theory does not take this into account.
Excerpts from Sir Author Eddington's paper published in 1920 where he describes gravity as a process of refraction.
This approach to the description of gravity as an electromagnetic phenomena shows for certain that the electric and magnetic charge fields of photons produce gravity. Maxwell's equations calculate the speed of light based upon two properties of space. Electric permittivity and magnetic permeability determine the speed of light. The speed of light is equal to one divided by the square root of the product of those two properties. Electric and magnetic charge pervade all of the universe and affect the two properties to increase the impedance of space. Photons that comprise massive objects produce gravity by radiating electric and magnetic charge through space.
When trapped in resonant patterns to become mass, photons still radiate the electric and magnetic fields that comprise them. These fields diminish in amplitude as the square of distance. The fields are too weak to interact with matter except at very close proximity to the path of their central points. Since they can't interact with matter, they extend right through matter. The fields extend outward forever and affect permittivity and permeability such that the two variables increase in amplitude as the fields increase in quantity and amplitude.
Work results when a force causes an object to change momentum. Photons create the force of gravity and so must provide the energy required to change momentum of objects. Energy must be conserved. Therefore photons in space must lose energy as they age. The result is a red shift in light from distant galaxies. This red shift must be proportional to the amount of objects the photons interact with as they move through space.
So, given only that the Maxwell equation can calculate the speed of light, gravity results from the presence of electric and magnetic charge fields. Even though photons only interact at their central peak amplitude, electric and magnetic force fields extend spatially outward forever. That is electromagnetic gravity.
