**Introduction**

“Working Assumptions” serve as foundational principles guiding further investigations and analyses. These assumptions, while not fully elevated to the status of postulates, form the basis for subsequent evaluations aimed at examining and exploring theories divergent from existing paradigms or elucidating discrepancies in observed phenomena. They provide a preliminary framework for understanding the interplay between electromagnetic forces and gravity, acknowledging the potential influence of gravitational fields on electromagnetic energy. These assumptions pave the way for experimental inquiries seeking to validate or refute the proposed dependence of EM energy on gravity, as well as for theoretical developments aimed at refining our understanding of fundamental physical interactions. By embracing these working assumptions, researchers are equipped to embark on a journey of discovery, potentially uncovering new principles that reshape our comprehension of the universe’s underlying dynamics.

Using the idea of a “working assumption” until it fails mathematically is a reasonable approach within the scientific method. Here’s why:

**Hypothesis Testing**: Science often progresses by formulating hypotheses or working assumptions and then subjecting them to empirical testing. By adopting the idea as a working assumption, you can explore its implications and predictions are within a framework to compare them with empirical observations.

**Iterative Process**: Science is an iterative process of refinement and revision. Working assumptions serve as starting points for inquiry, allowing researchers to develop theories and models that can be refined based on experimental data and mathematical analyses. If the assumption aligns with observations and holds up mathematically, it can serve as a foundational concept within the theory.

**Flexibility**: The scientific method encourages flexibility and openness to new evidence. If the working assumption eventually fails to align with experimental data or mathematical rigor, it can be revised or discarded in favor of alternative explanations that better account for observations.

**Progression of Knowledge**: Even if the assumption is eventually proven incorrect, the process of exploring its implications can lead to valuable insights and contribute to the progression of scientific knowledge. Failed hypotheses often provide valuable lessons and opportunities for refinement in scientific understanding.

**Speculation:** Given the nature of working assumptions and their potential significance, it is recommended to treat it as “highly speculative” information until further validation and refinement have been conducted. Sharing this concept only within a trusted circle of researchers and collaborators allows for open discussion and critical evaluation without premature dissemination to the broader scientific community.

As with any working assumption in scientific inquiry, this hypothesis is subject to empirical testing and mathematical scrutiny. Through experimentation, observation, and theoretical analysis, we aim to refine and validate this assumption, contributing to our understanding of the fundamental nature of photons and energy within the universe.

Here are some “working assumptions” that we have used:
