- TL;DR Summary
- Does light have any influence on gravity?

This is probably going to sound like a ridiculous question... but here goes.

I (think) I understand that matter tells spacetime how to curve and spacetime tells matter how to move. I also know that light obeys the same laws of general relatively as matter. What I can't get my head around is whether light has any impact on spacetime? Is spacetime curved more by the presence of more energetic/intensive light?

Sorry if this is a daft question!
