Since it has been proposed that gravity is emergent and gravitons are composed of pairs of gauge bosons, from the fact that the mass (self-energy) of a particle corresponds to the sum of the contributions of the three fundamental interactions, we suggest that there may exist three types of gravitons, each corresponding to the gauge-boson pairings of the three fundamental interactions. Comparisons with observations at galactic and cosmic scales are attempted, and tests at very small distances are envisaged.

Les comparaisons avec des observations à des échelles galactiques et cosmiques sont tentées et des tests à de très petites distances sont envisagées.
