Gravity Waves and EM Energy Propagate at the Same Speed
The observation by LIGO that gravity waves and EM energy propagate at the same speed suggests a deep connection between these two seemingly different phenomena. The Z0 Theory proposes that gravity depends primarily on energy, not mass. This view is supported by the fact that gravity waves and EM energy waves travel through space at the same speed.
To understand this connection, consider gravity waves as ripples of energy moving through the fabric of spacetime. Spacetime, the underlying tapestry of the universe, responds to the presence of mass and energy. As observed by LIGO, gravity waves are produced by the acceleration of massive objects, radiating outward from their source and distorting spacetime in their wake.
EM waves, on the other hand, represent the propagation of energy of a different form. They arise from the acceleration of electric charges and propagate outward as packets of energy called photons.
The convergence in propagation speed between gravity waves and EM energy implies a deeper link, potentially rooted in a fundamental physical process. Z0 postulates that this process relates to the fact that it is the energy within mass that is the main driver of gravity.
The revelation that gravity waves and EM energy share the same propagation speed has significant implications for our understanding of the universe. First, it suggests a more intimate connection between gravity and energy than previously conceived, potentially transcending mass as the sole driver of gravitational effects. Second, it hints at a profound relationship between gravity and electromagnetism, two of the fundamental forces governing the cosmos.
Z0 postulates that gravity’s dependence on energy, rather than mass, underpins the remarkable alignment in propagation speeds between electromagnetic energy and gravity waves. The convergence of these two disparate phenomena in their velocity provides compelling evidence for this novel perspective on gravity. LIGO’s observation of this phenomenon underscores that it is more than mere coincidence, inviting us to explore the intricate interplay of energy and gravity in the universe’s grand tapestry.
Energy Phase shift changes between preambiguation, propagation, and disambiguation
In the near field, such as in resonance, the voltage and current are 180 degrees out of phase. This phenomenon arises due to the predominantly reactive nature of the energy, where the exchange between the electric and magnetic fields is maximized.
In contrast, in the far field, such as in a propagating wave, the voltage and current exhibit a 90-degree phase shift. While reactive components persist, the energy becomes primarily radiative, resulting in a more balanced distribution between the electric and magnetic fields
One of the key contributors to this phase shift is the time delay in the forces within the wave. As the wave travels through space, the additional distance covered during propagation introduces a time delay. When combined with the 90-degree rotation of the wave, this time delay results in the observed 180-degree phase shift between voltage and current.
The utilization of Lorentzian proper time in measuring these distances provides crucial insights. While these distances sum up to a 180-degree phase shift in the wave, they only appear as a 90-degree shift in proper time.
Polarization of Energy
The “Polarization” conjecture delves into the intriguing concept of the Poynting vector, which describes the rate of flow of electromagnetic energy. Traditionally, the Poynting vector is represented as a two-dimensional equation, accounting for the energy’s spread over distance (1/r2) from the source. This relationship, observed in both electromagnetic and gravity formulas, raises questions about how a two-dimensional vector in a three-dimensional or higher-dimensional world accurately represents energy propagation. From this, it appears that energy is polarized, thus gravity must also be polarized.
Photon-Wave Energy Equivalence
This construct proposes that a single cycle of an electromagnetic wave, regardless of their frequency, possess the same energy as a photon with an equivalent frequency. The mystery is how does the energy of a photon translate to the declining energy of a wave as it amplitude (field strength) attenuates according the the inverse square law as it travels while the frequency remains constant?
