As the assumed cause of time dilation, length contraction and attraction we assume gravitational waves move at c.

Therefore these gravitational waves then affect themselves via self-interaction.

This would require the field lines to intersect and would indicate an incoherence in the field.

Since the calculations all refer to the centre of gravity then the density of all field lines at a set radial distance must have a normal distribution.

Quote from: jeffreyHAs the assumed cause of time dilation, length contraction and attraction we assume gravitational waves move at c. Hi Jeff. You make a lot of strange comments here. I'll tackle them one at a time. First this one. Why do you phrase this statement like this? What does it all mean? What is the assumed cause of time dilation? What attraction are you referring to?Quote from: jeffreyHTherefore these gravitational waves then affect themselves via self-interaction.Please explain what you mean by "these" gravitational waves affecting themselves by "self-interaction." What self interaction are you referring to?Quote from: jeffreyHThis would require the field lines to intersect and would indicate an incoherence in the field.Why?Quote from: jeffreyHSince the calculations all refer to the centre of gravity then the density of all field lines at a set radial distance must have a normal distribution.Why?

I know that gravity waves were predicted by Einstein but haven't quite been proven despite a lot of good research on the subject. I'm confident that they do exist but I have a question to ask you about gravity which relates to the twisting of space.Imagine a massive object like say earth with a gravitational field and you spin the massive object so the gravitational field will begin to twist slightly.If normal gravity is made up of gravity waves like you suggest, which propagate outward or inward at "c" then how would that effect the twisting action of the spinning gravitational field?

Pete I would just ignore the whole question. I do not have enough knowledge of what I am trying to ask. I need to do more reading before I can ask a proper question on this. I am about 75% through reading a book on Maxwell's equations so I was focusing on that more than gravitation. I am not surprised you didn't understand what I was going on about. I have been reading up on numerical relativity too and how theory predicts the event horizon moving outwards from at the centre of gravity. I would be interested on your views on this.
