For most folks the mention of waves brings images of beautiful beaches where sea water rises to crest, repeatedly ebbing again and again, only to return to crest again.

However, waves are not limited to oceans, but rather come in a variety of forms and many configurations, many more configurations than science has bee able to adequately define as science has evolved. Not only do waves have different forms and methods of propagation, but they vary in frequency, wavelength and amplitude and in complexity. Waves are prevalent thorough out the entire Universe, They are a base of matter, the carrier of energy, the communicator of information and perform many functions, some of which science does not fully understand. Waves are fundamental to the TimeSpace Reality we live in.

We know that waves are the foundation of all things of the Universe because waves are the properties of Time & Space, the Existence & Form from which has emerged wave Energy the Substance of all real Entities in the TimeSpace Reality.




Basic Wave Shape

The basic wave shape is called "Sinusoidal"
Simple Harmonic Motion


Waves are most always pictured as 2 dimensional, however, they are truly 3 dimensional by the very nature of the property structure from which they arise in the energy substance that they are.

Waves are Vibrations
Waves are the dynamics of the TimeSpace Universe. You might think about waves as things that wiggle. However, they are more accurately described as vibrations. Waves shake and they go back and forth, but they are scientifically described as oscillations. Waves describe the motion of all things in TimeSpace Reality.

Waves come from the properties of Time & Space. Thus waves describe the motion of energy which manifests a multitude of attributes, most notably to be a carrier in transfer of energy and to manifest as matter. Particles are fundamentally waves, the nature of matter. However, science describes matter as consisting of atoms (at the atomic level, atoms vibrate) which combine as molecules to form the composites of all things, all the entities of TimeSpace Reality.

Humans do not sense matter as waves any more that they sense relativity, that Earth is rotating at over 1000 mph. On Earth we feel that most things are standing still. Only when there is acceleration do we notice changes to our relative position. The same is true for all the energy that makes up matter. These waves of energy are standing waves, therefore are not prorogations, but rather are manifested as quantum. Humans do not sense any wave motion in physical things or for that matter biological things. Things have different characteristics, such as being a liquid or a solid that may be soft or very hard. None-the-less these are all different manifestations of waves.

That humans sense and gain knowledge from the collective experience of these sensations, is readily understood by all humans, almost intuitively. We might ask fundamentally what action does each of our five (5) senses do to gain these experience and therefore add to our knowledge. Unequivocally,


Eyes detect the color spectrum as different frequencies -- Hearing detects speech and music as sound waves -- Touch detects feeling as vibrating waves -- Taste savors flavor through waves -- Smell is detected as pleasant or foul waves of odor.


Quantum Mechanic Waves

They manifest as Frequency & Wavelength
Waves are the Structure & Carrier of Energy
They come from the Properties of Time & Space
The conjugate relations mathematically is express as frequency / wavelength.

Chart shows the relationship wave frequency across the spectrum of all things. The reciprocal of these frequencies is the wavelength. Frequencies are expressed in SI hertz units (System of International Units).
They oscillate through a spectrum from 0 to ???????????
Higher Frequencies, not expressed in hertz, are believed to occur naturally, in the frequencies of the quantum-mechanical wave functions of high-energy or equivalently, massive particles. These are not directly observable and must be inferred from their interactions with other phenomena. For practical reasons, these are typically not expressed in hertz, but in terms of the equivalent quantum energy, which is proportional to the frequency by the factor of Planck's constant.

In the mid 19th century James Clerk Maxwell formulated his classical electromagnetic theory. Maxwell was a Scottish mathematical physics. His electrometric theory united all previously unrelated observations, experiments, and equations of electricity, magnetism and optics into a consistent theory that demonstrated that electricity, magnetism and light are all manifestations of the same phenomenon, namely an electromagnetic wave field. Maxwell's achievements set the stage for the further development of what science has learned and applied in the understanding of waves. The wealth of knowledge that science has gained in this period is but a small fraction of what is to be known about the complexity of waves. The enormity of the complexity I dare say, could fill volumes and volumes. Today science is wrestling with "String theory" whose very essences lies in waves. The magnitude of this subject is beyond the scope of this page. (see Wikipedia / Waves)



Mechanical waves: Mechanical waves propagate through a medium. The medium may be a solid or a liquid or a gas; such as, earthquake waves propagate through the Earth; ocean waves propagate through water; sound waves propagate through air. The medium substance is deformed, then the deformation is reversed. Sound waves propagate via air molecules colliding with adjacent molecules. When air molecules collide, they also bounce away from each other, the restoring force. This keeps the molecules from continuing to travel in the direction of the wave.

Electromagnetic waves: Electromagnetic waves do not require a medium. They consist of periodic oscillations in electrical and magnetic fields generated by charged particles. They are capable of traveling through a vacuum. Electromagnetic waves vary in wavelength. Typical electromagnetic waves are sun radiation, visible light, x-rays and radio and TV waves.

Quantum waves: The Schrodinger equations describes, in the laws of Quantum Mechanics, the duality of particles and waves. While the Copenhagen interpretation is complementary in some aspects, there remains some question if particles are waves also. If that be the case, then a packet, as Max Planck described a quantum packet of energy, then a packet wave would propagate as a quantum wave.
(see "particle" page)

Gravitational waves: Gravitational waves are said to be ripples in the curvature of spacetime that propagates as a wave traveling outward from the source. Gravity, since general relativity, has been treated as the curvature of spacetime. The curvature is caused by the presence of massive objects. As these objects move around in spacetime their position change producing a disturbance known as gravitational radiation that ripples through space like ripples of the surface of a pond.


Longitudinal wave: A longitudinal wave is a wave in which particles of the medium move in a direction parallel to the direction that the wave moves. As a pluses is introduced into a particle in a horizontal direction from either side the pulse vibrates the first particle. Energy will begin to be transported from particle to particle. As the energy is transported, the individual particles of the medium will be displaced leftwards and rightwards. In this case, the particles of the medium move parallel to the direction that the pulse moves. This type of wave is a longitudinal wave. Longitudinal waves are always characterized by particle motion being parallel to wave motion.

Transverse waves: A transverse wave is a wave in which particles of the medium move in a direction perpendicular to the direction that the wave moves. The particles move up and down as Energy is transported either from the left or right. As the energy is transported the medium will be displaced upwards and downwards. In this case, the particles of the medium move perpendicular to the direction that the pulse moves. This type of wave is a transverse wave. Transverse waves are always characterized by particle motion being perpendicular to wave motion.

Standing waves: Standing wave phenomenon occurs when the medium is moving in the opposite direction to the wave, or it can arise in a stationary medium as a result of interference between two waves traveling in opposite directions. In the second case, for waves of equal amplitude traveling in opposing directions average. There is no net propagation of energy. In a resonator , standing waves occur during the phenomenon known as resonance.


Propagation: Waves normally move in a straight line through transmission medium.

Absorption: absorption of electro-magnetic radiation is the way in which the energy of a photon taken up by matter, typically the electrons an atom. Electromagnetic energy is transformed to other forms of energy such as heat.

Reflection: When a wave strikes a reflective surface, it changes direction, such that the angle made by the incident wave and line normal to the surface equals the angle made by the reflected wave and the same normal line.

Interference: Waves that encounter each other combine through super-position to create a new wave called an interference pattern. Interference patterns occur for waves that are in phase.

Refraction: Refraction occurs when a wave changes speed, the size of the phase velocity changes. Typically, refraction occurs when a wave passes from one medium into another. The amount refraction is given by the an index

Diffraction: A wave exhibits diffraction when it encounters an obstacle that bends the wave or when it spreads after emerging from an opening. The more pronounced the size of the obstacle or opening is comparable to the wavelength of the wave.

Polarization: A wave is polarized if it oscillates in one direction or plane. and may be polarized by the use of a filter. Longitudinal waves such as sound waves do not exhibit polarization. For these waves the direction of oscillation is along the direction of travel.

Dispersion: A wave undergoes dispersion when either the phase velocity or the group velocity depends on the wave frequency. Dispersion is readily observed in a rainbow when white sun light pass through a prism of a raindrop which produce the spectrum of colors.
