I would refer to that mechanism as the “cause of gravity” and equate it to the acceleration of objects caused by other objects in space with mass that are in relative motion.There is gravity between you and the Earth, even when there is no relative motion between you and the Earth.
- This gravity is sufficient to cause lethal injuries if you fell from a height of just 10 meters.
- However, if you add up all the gravitational wave influences from all the sources, that would probably amount to less than the impact of air molecules on your body - completely imperceptible
I conclude that the chorus of gravitational waves permeating the universe cannot be the cause of gravity - by many orders of magnitude.
Of course, I would not recommend being in close proximity to colliding black holes, as that would be really spoil your day.
