## What is Light?

A wave in pond travels within the pond. The pond itself does not move. The speed of this wave depend on the density and bulk modulus of water.

Similarly, light travels within the space. The space itself does not move. The speed of light depends on the permittivity and permeability of space.

Light is not a wave. It is only analogous to a wave. The frequency of light is very likely its consistency as a substance. The wavelength of light is probably the “tension” of the light substance in space. Velocity is probably how fast a disturbance in the tension of light spreads.

Light substance is not made up atoms. It is actually made up of force. Faraday approximated it as “lines of force.”

## Conjectures on Motion

The measured speed of light is constant only within a certain limit of precision.The speed is limited by the inertia of the electromagnetic fields in spacetime. The spacetime represents the gravitational field.

Therefore, inertia of light comes from its interaction with the gravitational field. Absence of inertia would mean unrestrained acceleration and infinite speed.

Uniform finite velocity of light means that its acceleration is balanced with its inertia. The amount of resistance to “change in velocity” gives a sense of consistency of substance. A speed greater than ‘c’ will exist if and only if the consistency of substance is less than the consistency of light.

## Speed of light and Inertia

On the Spectrum of Substance, the motion of substance decreases as consistency increases. We may suppose that on a very large scale motion is inversely proportional to inertia. We may check this out as follows:

Ratio of speed of light to speed of matter (approximately) = 3 x 108

Ratio of consistency of matter to consistency of light = consistency of proton/consistency of light

= 277.6 / 249

= 228.6

= 4 x 108

This is of the same order of magnitude as the approximated ratio of the speeds of light and matter. This value is higher because the consistency of neutron is slightly higher than the average consistency of matter. Therefore, it is quite possible that the consistency and motion (or, inertia and speed) are inversely proportional to each other.

In other words, the product of consistency (inertia) and motion (speed) shall give us a new universal constant. This has to be worked out carefully.
