within a transverse wave there lies a longitudinal wave, and that this is how we draw our amplitude vs. time graphs for sound waves

I reiterate. Coolest. Guy.

I don't know jack shit about quantum physics either, so your idea sounded at least plausible. However, I thought through this statement a little more carefully, and you may (or may not) be interested in the results:
Suppose neutrinos are gravitons. In that case, neutrino flux through the local area from a given source must be proportional to the strength of the gravitational field from that source. The earth's gravitational field strength at the surface is 9.8m/s/s, as we all know. Typing "(G * mass of sun)/(1 AU)^2" (sans quotes) into Google's search bar yields .0059 m/s/s. Therefore, neutrinos from the Earth should massively dwarf neutrinos from the Sun. However, this is not the case, so neutrinos are not gravitons.
Good try though, keep thinking.

Not to get off topics, but what do you mean by this? ...

Ah, you thought that because you thought G=9.8 m/s^2 ! That's g. Big G is the universal gravitational constant. Little g is the value of the gravitational field at the surface of the earth.
g = G * (mass of earth) / (radius of earth)^2

The expected speed difference to light is so extremely tiny it is impossible to measure it (with all exisiting and even proposed experiments). The experimental values are in agreement with this prediction.Robert rox wrote:Ok there was faulty wiring but all of the results afterwards concluded that neutrinos goes the same speed as light which is interesting that a particle with mass can go as fast as a particle with out mass. So the warp theory could still be relevant.
doogly wrote:No, that is not a thing.
The "chameleon" is a postulated scalar particle with a non-linear self-interaction that gives the particle an effective mass that depends on its environment: the presence of other fields. It would have a small mass in much of intergalactic space, but a large mass in terrestrial experiments, making it difficult to detect. The chameleon is a possible candidate for dark energy and dark matter, and may contribute to cosmic inflation.
