meaningless. What is a field? What shape is it? What causes it,

fundamentally? The answers you might dream up or put forward out of

familiarity, if you really think about them, are just words without form or

structure at the Planck scale.

Now, you begin below to go into how wave geometry might be altered, and

that is excellent and what must be done to understand this stuff. You can

discard the notion, "field" and speak in terms of wavelengths and

frequencies and geometries and how the nodes and anti nodes are varied in

space and in time.

To begin understanding gravity, start with just two particles in the

universe, plus, spacetime where spacetime is a structure of standing waves

permeating the entire universe and the structure of waves to which the

"particles" are under damped resonances.

If the two particles (remember the name particle is used, but what is

always meant is "standing wave" or "spherical resonance", and not a

particle in the sense of a rock or dust grain that just sits there doing

nothing.)

If the two particles are alone in the universe, they will interact via

their waves which pass through each other. If the waves interfere at 180

phase, they will move toward one another or, "attract". If the waves

interfere at 90 or 270 phase, they will be neutral to each other and won't

accelerate relative to one another. If their waves interfere at 0 phase,

they will repulse. This was known back in the 1880's by Thomson, Bjerknes

and everyone working with aether theories, so read history texts to get

this aspect.

Now, let's add a bunch of random, frequency shifted wave energy coming

inward from all distances throughout the rest of the universe (from other

resonances far away and moving away so that they are red shifted in

frequency). That wave energy will not interfere with the two we are

dealing with via a phase interference because they are at different

frequencies. That energy is like noise, literally.

If you sit two people on a chair on a frictionless ice rink, stationary,

and then you turn on a bunch of loud speakers around the rink, they will be

pushed toward one another because their bodies will filter out some of that

noise and it will be quieter in between them.

The same thing happens and we call it gravity. The wave energy that drives

gravity comes from the rest of the universe. The funny thing is, the power

is about the same no matter how far away the noise is coming from because

while the intensity is falling off by 1/R^2, the number of galaxies is

rising by R^2, and the two multiplied together is just 1.

So, galaxies billions of light years away play as important a role in

gravity as do galaxies a few million light years away. Spacetime is the

local time keeper of wave energy, and it has as it's frequency, the Planck

scale frequency where the majority of the power is, nearby.

However, this is just showing how to think of the aspects of gravity that

you already know about.

if you really want to learn about what is wrong with GR, then you must

study how gravity also has an effect that repulses objects away from one

another due to exothermy and the formation of new spacetime. This happens

in stars due to fusion and mass to space conversion. This is what is wrong

with GR and QM, ...........ie, they fail to acknowledge this aspect of how

the universe really works.
