We investigate the relation of the mass of the graviton to the number of information in a flat universe. As a result we find that the mass of the graviton scales as . Furthermore, we find that the number of gravitons contained inside the observable horizon is directly proportional to the number of information ; that is, . Similarly, the total mass of gravitons that exist in the universe is proportional to the number of information ; that is, . In an effort to establish a relation between the graviton mass and the basic parameters of the universe, we find that the mass of the graviton is simply twice the Hubble mass as it is defined by Gerstein et al. (2003), times the square root of the quantity , where is the deceleration parameter of the universe. In relation to the geometry of the universe we find that the mass of the graviton varies according to the relation , and therefore obviously controls the geometry of the space time through a deviation of the geodesic spheres from the spheres of Euclidean metric.
