## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

So according to GR, energy bends spacetime, right? So that would include both light and mass. If I am understanding this right, light bends spacetime, and is also affected by the spacetime curvature. Could someone explain exactly what the spacetime curvature does to light (I mean like how it affects the movement and dynamics of light, not gravitational lensing). Thanks in advance!
