In 2001 I attended a lecture in Germany by Dr Hartmut Muller who had invented a new form of telecommunication based on standing gravitational
waves rather then electro-magnetic waves.
Not only was this more energy-efficient but communication is faster. Using standing waves information is transmitted instantaneously as there is no
speed of propagation.
To use a simple analogy, using a standing wave is like having a vast stick
stretching across the universe,as you push one end the other end moves at the same time.With a propagating wave it is as if the universe is a large
pond and ones drops a pebble in it, the ripples from the pebble slowly spread out through space. Using a propagating electro-magnetic wave a message
sent to another galaxy would take tens of 1000s of years to get
there and the same time for the reply. This effectively rules out electromagnetic communication as a viable means of sending messages over vast
distances. When Dr Muller and colleagues tested their new system of communication they were surprised to find that the system was already in use,but
NOT BY ANYONE ON EARTH.
It would appear that there are at least two civilisations out there talking to each other by means of standing gravitational waves.This link will tell
you more about the communication system ssl.kundenserver.de...
This link tells you more about what was found www.graviflight.de...
I am afraid both pages are in German but one could use a translation engine on them.
If these findings and the conclusions based on them are correct. It would suggest that SETI is irrelevant in its present form as any advanced
civilisation would have stopped using electro-magnetic communication a long time ago.
