If we assume that A. radiant energy travels at constant velocity (c) in a vacuum, and that B. matter is energy in a stored form, can we deduce that matter must also travel at constant velocity (c)? More specifically, is it possible that the warping effect of matter on space-time is nature's way of keeping A. inviolate? In this way, gravity can be interpreted as the constant acceleration of an object in all possible directions at once. By saying, then, that matter travels at the speed of light i really mean that matter(mass) warps space and time so that so as to mimic the effect of constant acceleration in all spatial dimensions simultaneously, keeping A. inviolate. This interpretation has curious results when applied black holes, the time dimension, etc. please opine.

Interesting and usefull your view of matter as energy in a stored form,rest mass is applied if something is not dynamic which is a why the photon has no rest mass becouse it is never at rest in any of the quantum calculations, all matter must have mass otherwise the matter with no mass would have no energy using e=mc2 yet the photon has energy yet it has no rest mass. something is amiss here and it is probably the english language so replet with absolutes. Absolutes per Heizenberg are fiction and using english language gets us into these binds. First off the speed of light is not absolute therby allowing for a Tachyon Asymtote Symphanotic Induction of all matter to a degree in a stored form or in a dynamic form giving eveything an energy that has a potential for C+ yet mass with more mass than a certain amount cannot go faster than C yet the potential is there and this C+ potential gives all matter affinitizing characteristics to congregate based on mass. C+ discussion is not possible when absolutes run the show but if C has speed parameters then we can see a wavy line defining speed of C and the next zone next to the C line is Superluminosity having speed of C times a number that is exponential as a function of the mass of the singularities representing the material that can only go as fast as C.
