What is a Watt???

RE: What is a Watt???
the below occurred to me last night.
I will post it here in my usual "style", for comments.
There is another mathematical "quirk" not mentioned so far. Namely,
any number times zero IS zero.
Therefore, a black body can not have no mass, otherwise
nothing can not absorb, and nothing can not emit.
So, a black body MUST HAVE a mass of 1 per square meter.
ie, 100% mass.
This is because of the mathematical "quirk" that any number times, or divided by 1 remains the same.
For a gray body the power of emission MUST BE corrected for mass of the gray body emitting at that power.
The mass of the gray body WILL ALWAYS be less than 1, frequently considerably less than 1.
THERE is the "hole",
THERE is the size of the "pipe",
THERE is the missing amount,
in W/m2 calculations for gray body amount of emissions I have been referring to.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
H. L. Mencken.
The hobgoblins have to be imaginary so that
"they" can offer their solutions, not THE solutions.
