Byrne, Michael (2000)

Gravitons should have momentum just as photons do; and since graviton momentum would cause compression rather than elongation of spacetime outside of matter; it does not appear that gravitons are compatible with Swartzchild's spacetime curvature. Also, since energy is proportional to mass, and mass is proportional to gravity; the energy of matter is proportional to gravity. The energy of matter could thus contract space within matter; and because of the inter-connectedness of space, cause the elongation of space outside of matter. And this would be compatible with Swartzchild spacetime curvature. Since gravity could be initiated within matter by the energy of mass, transmitted to space outside of matter by the inter-connectedness of space; and also transmitted through space by the same inter-connectedness of space; and since spatial and relativistic gravities can apparently be produced without the aid of gravitons; massive gravity could also be produced without gravitons as well. Gravity divided by an infinite number of segments would result in zero expression of gravity, because it could not curve spacetime. So spatial segments must have a minimum size, which is the Planck length; thus resulting in quantized space. And since gravity is always expressed over some distance in space, quantum space would therefore always quantize gravity. So the non-mediation of gravity by gravitons does not result in unquantized gravity, because quantum space can quantize gravity; thus making gravitons unproven and unnecessary, and explaining why gravitons have never been found.
