Mainstream scientists believe that gravitational waves are similar to but different from acoustic waves. Are gravitational waves in space difficult to detect because of their great length?
Could gravitational waves be scalar acoustic waves operating on a grand scale?
Acoustic waves are described as longitudinal waves that propagate through an elastic medium while light waves are transverse waves in an electromagnetic field.
Acoustic waves are also described as compression and rarefaction waves. Gravitational waves are described as waves that expand and contract.
While light waves travel through space at approximately 186,000 miles per second, sound waves are supposed to travel through space at a speed of approximately 1,100 feet per second. However, gravitational waves travel at the speed of light.

Basic Acoustic Principles
Acoustics and Vibrations Animations
Since light and sound both consist of waves, they are transmitted in similar ways. The most important difference between the two is their wavelengths. Visible light has wavelengths between about 400 and 700 nanometers (billionths of a meter), while sound has wavelengths between about 3.3 centimeters and 3.3 meters.
Why do mainstream scientists say gravitational waves are “sound-like”?
Instead, I advocate thinking about them as sound-like: Gravitational waves encode in an aural-like manner the dynamics of the source that generates them.
Hunting for Gravity Waves

Gravity waves are akin to sound waves. Einstein predicted that just as air can vibrate, so can space and time. In fact, Einstein said that every time anything moved the fabric of space-time vibrates, sending out gravitational waves.

Now anyone who knows anything about anything knows that sound waves as we think of them cannot travel in space, there are not enough molecules in the ‘vacuum’ of space for them to propagate through. Gravity waves, however, propogate through spacetime just like sound propogates through our atmosphere, we just need special ears to hear the sound, that’s what LIGO is.
High Frequency Gravitational Waves
High-Frequency Gravitational Waves are different than a static field. Conventional physics claims that they can transmit energy much like radio or sound waves, and hence be a useful method of turning energy into propulsive force.
The conventional picture of a gravity wave may be called "a moving ripple in the fabric of space-time". A conventional massy object can be said to occupy a region of space-time, each atom of that mass in a different place than any other. If such a mass is encountered by a gravity wave, the wave causes distances between atoms to temporarily shrink and/or expand -- because Space itself shrinks and/or expands as a gravity wave goes by.
Gravitational waves: coming soon?

GWs, oscillating transversal strains in space-time, intuitively can be thought of as sound waves. Like sound waves, GWs detectable on Earth come (by chance) in the acoustic frequency band. Moreover, since GWs interferometers have a poor directionality as microphones, these waves can be “heard,” rather than “seen.”
Gravity Waves and LIGO
What are gravity waves? A gravitational field, which can be viewed as a distortion of local space, surrounds every massive object. Like light, gravity waves travel at the speed of light and obey the inverse- square law. In one direction perpendicular to the wave's direction of travel space is stretched, while in the other direction space is compressed, with the stretch and compression exchanging places after half a period of the wave.
Gravity waves have two distinct states of polarization. Viewed head-on, gravity waves with the "+" polarization state alternately compress and expand space top-and-bottom and side-to-side (kneading space with a "+" pattern). Gravity waves having the "x" polarization state compress and expand space along lines 45 degrees to the right of vertical and to the left of vertical (kneading with an "X" pattern).
Mechanics of Gravity Waves

The effects of a gravity wave are seen perpendicular to the direction in which the wave is traveling. If a wave is moving towards you---dead on, straight at you---you'll see the effects of the wave left and right and up and down, not forwards and backwards. As much as people compare gravity waves to sound waves, which are just compression waves, the comparison is not complete.
Parallel to Light Waves
http://www.gothosenterprises.com/gravit ... llels.html
Just like the electromagnetic wave has two directions of oscillation (the electric and the perpendicular magnetic), so does the gravitational wave. However, instead of being 90 degrees apart (perpendicular) they are 45 degrees apart. What happens with the oscillations?! I called it earlier 'left and right and up and down.'
Scientists believe they will soon be able to detect 'gravity waves'
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/scien ... 05812.html
They come from the furthest depths of space and are born out of some of the most violent events imaginable - from the explosions of stars to the collisions of black holes. Yet they are one of the most elusive phenomena in the Universe, so elusive that there is every chance that they have passed straight through your body without your realising it.
What evidence do we have that gravitational waves are acoustic scalar waves?
Faster than Speeding Light
What are these longitudinal waves and how might they function? As noted previously, T.J.J. See pictured an incessant bidirectional, gravitational, wave-stress, interlocked, cork-screw tension in the aether. The Russian torsion field researchers describe them in at least three types of electric fields, spin fields, and bidirectional gravity fields. There are many common frequencies associated with all spherical structures.
THE PHYSICS OF Phi,
Compression, Implosion, Gravity, Time, and Love
http://caltek.net/dan/connectivity/phib ... ofPHI.html
Wave mechanics essentially means that to understand waves is to understand mass. Mass is the inertia we measure when waves cross and store spin. The difficulty in understanding the field among waves, as a unified field, is to visualize and model how implosion is the link between gravity and magnetism. The key to understanding implosion, is to see that the geometry of implosion is everywhere the same.
Therefore any principle which enables waves to optimize spin density is the key to mass density, information density, and awareness density.
It is the nature of waves when they meet in the universal compressible substrate (ether), to beat and interfere. The key to compression/implosion is how these waves can interfere infinitely with never any destructive loss of inertia, spin, and pattern. Otherwise spin and pressure density is not self organizing or sustainable.
Another thought along these lines is the concept of scalar waves. Could these be correlated to gravitational waves?
One paper I read recently compared gravitation/electrostatic/scalar waves as a longitudinal motion through a structured lattice-like vacuum or aether, whereas light would be a transverse motion though the same medium. Energy from a transverse waveform (i.e. light, EMF), longitudinal waveform (i.e. gravity waves, electrostatics, scalar) and the potential of the medium itself. This is essentially Maxwell's idea of an "elastic medium" where lines of force pervade. In this view, the speed at which a longitudinal waveform travels need not be the same as the speed at which a transverse waveform travels. In other words, gravitation waves could travel many times faster than the speed of light.
Creation, Transmission and Reception of Vibrations
We can see that rotation is a natural phenomenon. The very existence of a longitudinal or transverse wave train gives rise in a natural form to a third vibratory component that easily and effortlessly rotates about and with the longitudinal and transverse wave trains.
Under our studies we see three distinct vibration modes or types of vibrations: 1) Longitudinal or straight-line; 2) Transverse, Shear or zigzag; 3) Lamb, Love, Surface, Raleigh or vortex waves. Each of these vibration forms are composed of the three polarizations of positive, negative and neutral phases or states of a vibration.
Controlling the negative attractive (harmonic, female) and/or the positive propulsive (enharmonic, male) phases of the three fundamental modes is a feat postulated among the roots of applied Sympathetic Vibratory Physics. The control of these will result in the control of the Neutral or Dominant (scalar).
The Dominant (neutral) polarization is the same as what has been called by Bearden the "scalar potential."
These are pure waves of space-time, and they are oscillating curvatures of space-time itself. They are pure waves of compression and rarefaction of the massless charge of space-time, and are properly represented as longitudinal waves rather than transverse waves. Thus they are non-Hertzian in nature. Among other things, they may be used to generate mass and inertial fields directly."
For our work we only need to substitute into the above ‘acoustic waves’ and we have a very accurate definition of Keely's Dominant or Neutral third leg of the polar forces.
This neutral pole has within it pure (vibratory) energy in a potential state (neutralized, latent). This is a result of the perfect balancing of the two harmonic (= magnetic) and enharmonic (= electric) flows. These two then, perfectly balanced together - becoming One - is the Dominant, scalar or third point of the triangle.
Quaternions describe mathematically the structure of Keely's triple streams or concordant flows as he called them when harmoniously balanced thus becoming his Full Harmonic Chord. This triple flow is then an undifferentiated flow as a scalar phenomenon.
Is Keely's "Neutral Center" the same as Bearden's "Electrostatic Potential"?
