Can you provide the source for this, please

It was a while ago now, but I will try to find the original webpage for you.

Good point. Probably the mixing of static and dynamic situations* for both gravity and electromagnetism is the main reason behind the proposals made by OP. I asked you to analyse your prop

There is no “moment of mass existence” Energy is conserved, so mass does not just pop into being.  However, in a very basic sense, gravity behaves as you describe, despite your dubious mathematic

Thanks (I have seen it before, but don't know where!)

I think this is it: http://www.tapir.caltech.edu/~teviet/Waves/empulse.html

So it was perhaps Caltech not NASA.

Gravitational waves are a proof for my discovery

The place in which the space-time is curved changes to another place when the mass accelerates a new space-time curvature happens at this new place then this new curvature or gravity spread in form of waves with the speed of light c. Gravitational waves propagate with the speed of light c.

You don’t have a discovery. You are describing standard physics.

My idea is space-time curvature spreads out with c . mass motion " accelerated one" causes changes in space-time curvature places making new curvatures in space-time these new curvatures spread out with c in form of waves that proves space curvature spreads out with c.

Gravitational waves are standard physics but what I proposed is not.

Standard physics. Hence the prediction of gravitational waves by GR.

There is nothing new here.

Anything you have proposed that is new lacks the kind of detail needed to confirm it.

Gravitational and EM field fluctuations moving at c is already part of mainstream physics.

Does that mean what I proposed won't be accepted in any way?

Not without specific predictions and ways to test it. You need the math to make the predictions and experimental confirmation to back up any claims.

What have you proposed that is new?

What is the mathematical description of the new idea?

What evidence is there for the new idea?

Honestly I'm merely an engineering student so I will just leave it

Thanks,

How do we measure speed of gravity, how to create waves of gravity, to get their speed?

I don't know the mathematics about space-time curvature , what mathematics might be if we add that space time curvature spread out with c ? any ideas?

Sounds like General relativity: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_relativity

That would be general relativity, the Einstein Field Equations:

These describe how spacetime curves and how that curvature spreads out at the speed of light.

Guys you mistunderstand me.Gravitional waves and gravity propagation are standard physics but I added that it has a LIMITED RANGE this range is extendable with speed c. Speed c is the common factor for all these concepts that doesn't mean I' m repeating science @swansont  understood me well I need now some math for it so that it is complete and great  theory.

That would be true if mass could appear from nowhere. Then its gravitational field would spread out with c and beyond that there would be no gravity. However, mass cannot appear from nowhere so the gravitational field extends throughout the whole universe (which could be to infinity).

This is all described by GR. You have added nothing new (except inventing the idea that mass can appear from nowhere, which is nonsense).

No one knows what was before the big bang.

How is that relevant?

We do know that the universe has always been completely and homogeneously full of matter and energy. And that it was small enough for it to be in thermal equilibrium; therefore it was also small enough for the gravitational effect of the matter to spread through the entire universe.

Again, you are adding nothing new.

You say it's necessary for me to be right that matter came from no where , so what? we know energy is conservative in this universe but we don't know what was before the big bang"the beginning of this unviverse" My idea is not based on the non-existence of matter at some moment but in the unlogical Newtonian view of infinite gravity. So I don't need to present evidence that mass came from nowhere .If the idea that mass came from nowhere is part of my concept then OK noone can prove it didn't came from nowhere and no one has evidence that it is there always.

So do matter exist in the past back to infinite time ? this will be another "infinity" wrong idea. It is simple nothing goes with infinity speed nothing weighs infinity nothing spend infinity time nothing spread to infinity distance nothing reaches infinity no other universes will fill the infinity.

There is nothing in the universe is infinite and will never be . space and time are not the universe . the are the place in which  any possible universe might exist and function so they are infinite " although some scientists say space and time are finite but some say they are infinite and I agree with those who say they are infinite."
