Does E in e=mc^2 include gravity

    Does the E in E=MC^2 include the gravitons?

    Assuming gravitons exist, they would be massless and would fall under the equation E2 = M2C4 + P2C2, where the M2C4 portion is zero (because m is zero) but the P2C2 portion is non-zero, as gravitons would have momentum.
