Lorentz Invariance implies definite structural constraints on the massive particles. It is shown from the basic physics of luminal waves of any kind that multi-component wave systems conform to the usual relativistic mechanics for massive particles, suggesting further consideration of luminal wave models of matter. The usual length contraction and time dilation phenomena are shown in such models, leading to a wave interpretation of Lorentz Invariance and to the conclusion that internal movements referred to the co-moving frame will be luminal in any Lorentz invariant particle model.
