The author offers the interpretation that the mass is a relativistic invariant. Next it is evidenced that the formula for the momentum four-vector cannot beapplied, given the current interpretations of Physics, neither to particles nor to photons, and that the photons should have mass. Then it is proposed a postulate about the electromagnetic constitution of matter, which gets rid of these problems. Finally, the validity and applicability of the equivalence of mass and energy is evaluated and is confirmed the requirement that the constitution of mass must be electromagnetic.
