Conveniently ignoring what should be an obvious issue with GR is one thing, but you actually do not even recognize it? The answer given to question here should ring a bell: http://physics.stackexchange.com/qu...vature-in-the-schwarzschild-metric-due-to-a-c If no bell rings, if you can't make an obvious connection and see logical issues with supposed properties of a TT GW. Or more generally inconsistency within GR of the notion of gravitational field 'self-gravitation', don't worry. Yours will be an overwhelming majority perspective. Even if your own rival theory is far from enjoying such.
