Gravity has become a subject of debate. Till 1915 with the Einstein's general theory of relativity, gravity has been considered as an interaction force between massive objects according to Newton's classical gravity theory. After Einstein's general relativity, gravity has been considered as a measure of the curvature of space where the matter is inside. In this study, we introduce a philosophical insight for the deflection of light by a black hole in order to support the classical description of Newtonian gravity. We propose a mass creation mechanism by a black hole instead of the gravitational space-time curvature mechanism for gravitationally deflecting massless light. The proposal in the study is a new approach to explain the gravitational reaction of the massless light particles to a massive object that we firstly call it as the mass induction on a pair of photon in the influence of very large gravitational potentials.
