Well, the main point with them should be if they also transport a energy, and how much? Otherwise it's just SpaceTime geometry as I get it and nothing locally noticeable for me, meaning that it won't break me into non functioning parts getting 'hit' by a gravitational wave. But the question about that 'energy' is a weird one to me.
np, I know JP. It's hard to evaluate what they write, it is a lot of equations assumed, and definitions. That's also why I don't want to define 'energy, other than as a 'exchange' or 'transformation' cost. But I'm always open for another shot on what it is, or isn't maybe?
That depends on how I define it, doesn't it. If a transformation is without a cost then we have conservation of energy, right? If it is so then 'to do work' becomes a meaningless definition. You don't 'do work', you just 'transform energy' from one 'form' to another, no cost attached. Energy is a very weird idea to me.Alternatively you lose something in a transformation, some 'energy' disappearing.=Actually the idea of conservation of energy also, to me, seem to crave a container model, how else can I understand it to be kept? Where?
Well, I'm not finding one way better than another. The conservation laws goes back to Noether and the definitions she made. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noether%27s_theoremIt's just that defining it locally a lot of things becomes questionable to me. But it is also so that where you have two stories each giving you a working logic, then the question becomes if they need to be joined, or if there is a possibility of 'simultaneous' logics existing? I think that possibility exist.
