For goodness sake, I am saying that two quakes go off at once and so a huge force meets up with another huge force and collide and of course what you say about quakes in general is true...
Is this really the level of intelligence on this site?

The first, and most profound, difference between wave motion and the motion of objects is that waves do not display any repulsion of each other analogous to the normal forces between objects that come in contact. Two wave patterns can therefore overlap in the same region of space, as shown in the figure at the top of the page. Where the two waves coincide, they add together. For instance, suppose that at a certain location in at a certain moment in time, each wave would have had a crest 3 cm above the normal water level. The waves combine at this point to make a 6-cm crest. We use negative numbers to represent depressions in the water. If both waves would have had a troughs measuring -3 cm, then they combine to make an extradeep -6 cm trough. A +3 cm crest and a -3 cm trough result in a height of zero, i.e. the waves momentarily cancel each other out at that point. This additive rule is referred to as the principle of superposition, "superposition" being merely a fancy word for "adding."
you kinda just proved his point though didn't you. This article says that one two waves intersect, they double in amplitude (provided that they are in sink) regardless of the direction of the waves. So if two waves start at the same time. they will both be either rising of falling when they intersect, and will double in their power at that point.

Pfft!!! you call this a weapon we call it a level 2 clearance weapon wait until they start using the level 5 based weapons then you will S##t yourself. Believe me I been to the bases and seen the stuff myself so if you wanna make a big hipe about it would be pointless. Yes New Zealand was a test site but you don't even know what the weapon is your writing says one thing when it actually was another. The weapon was the 2nd upgrade of what you guys know as HARP new versions of it are currently tested in Australia and a newer model was tested in Christchurch. Trust me AprilSky if you think this is bad you have not seen anything yet I watch these people and see their tech constantly so if some level 2 clearance weapon is such a big deal. Then a level 5 one would most likely look to you like an apocalypse.
Anyways I said enough time for me to head off.
Thanks for your reply.
I believe there is something to what you say.
Can you explain the term "Clearance weapon" to me, thanks in advance?
