I don't think nature has any problems with gravity. The problems are entirely with human-made equations trying to describe it.

At high energy experiments, where particles are collided:
Is it possible that the "stuffness, formation, structure, density" of Gravity/gravity is distorted/altered to a significant degree that this is why the equations are having trouble?
The crucial point is that this approximate description of gravity will break down at some energy scale — or equivalently, below some length.
Above this energy scale, or below the associated length scale, we expect to find new degrees of freedom and new symmetries. To capture these features accurately we need a new theoretical framework. This is precisely where string theory or some suitable generalization comes in: According to string theory, at very short distances, we would see that gravitons and other particles are extended objects, called strings. Studying this possibility can teach us valuable lessons about the quantum behavior of gravity.

Gravitational waves (not gravity waves) cause space (and things in space, like the Earth) to jiggle like jello. The higher the frequency, the faster the jiggling. As two black holes do their merging spiral and dance closer and closer together, the frequency increases. Scientists have modeled the gravity wave frequency increase with audio representation, and we can hear a "chirp", but it's just an audio analog, there's not really a true audible chirp. However it gives us a way to try to try to imagine the frequency increase of the gravitational waves, by using our ears, so it may be helpful that way to listen to the chirp. You can see the frequency plots and hear the chirps here:

What I'm curious about is high-frequency gravity waves. I have to assume that like any EM wave, gravity can manifest in both very low frequencies as well as very high frequencies, and I wonder if different frequencies can have different spacetime warping effects.

so the question is: the concept of real true pure actual 'nothing' must actually 'exist' as at least, volume beyond the universe/s, but if volume in the universe is taken up by 'nothing', approximately how much, and how might the differences between that answer effect the understanding of the behavior of how Gravity functions, as a mechanistic system, furthermore locally, and from locally gradiently away, under high energy collisions
Firstly, Massive bodies interact with the constituents of the gravity medium, and well, a large number of this, a volume of the gravity medium must be massive enough (and according to the gravity in motion theory, energetic) to carry the mass of the moon: It would seem absurd to suggest the gravity medium is massless yet can hold and carry the weight of the moon at ___mph
The word mass has two meanings in special relativity: rest mass or invariant mass is an invariant quantity which is the same for all observers in all reference frames, while relativistic is dependent on the velocity of the observer. According to the concept of mass–energy equivalence, the rest mass and relativistic mass are equivalent to the rest energy and total energy of the body, respectively....
...The measurable inertia and gravitational attraction of a body in a given frame of reference is determined by its relativistic mass, not merely its rest mass. For example, photons have zero rest mass but contribute to the inertia (and weight in a gravitational field) of any system containing them.
If it exists, the graviton is expected to be massless because the gravitational force is very long range and appears to propagate at the speed of light. The graviton must be a spin-2 boson because the source of gravitation is the stress–energy tensor, a second-order tensor (compared with electromagnetism's spin-1 photon, the source of which is the four-current, a first-order tensor). Additionally, it can be shown that any massless spin-2 field would give rise to a force indistinguishable from gravitation, because a massless spin-2 field would couple to the stress–energy tensor in the same way that gravitational interactions do. This result suggests that, if a massless spin-2 particle is discovered, it must be the graviton.
A feature of gravitons in string theory is that, as closed strings without endpoints, they would not be bound to branes and could move freely between them. If we live on a brane (as hypothesized by brane theories), this "leakage" of gravitons from the brane into higher-dimensional space could explain why gravitation is such a weak force, and gravitons from other branes adjacent to our own could provide a potential explanation for dark matter
