Abstract: The hypothesis of the equality of the speed of light squared and the gravitational potential of the Universe is considered. This equality explains why the speed of light does not depend on an observer?s motion. The physical meaning of Einstein\'s formula is revealed: the energy of a body at rest is enormous because it is equal to the potential energy of the body in the gravitational field created by all massive objects in the Universe. The equality of the inertial and gravitational masses is theoretically justified. It is proposed to test the new hypothesis in laboratory experiments by measuring the speed of light with high accuracy. It is proposed to solve the problem of the possible existence of black holes in a metrology laboratory.
