Hi all, On the subject of being able to feel gravity waves as a human without machines, I couldn't find a very definitive answer to what I was looking for. First, I reference the video: at 40 tp 55 seconds. Its called: LIGO, journey of a G wave. They say in this clip that when the black holes that merged that were detected by LIGO, more energy was released in the gravity waves of that merger than 50 times all the stars in the universe combined. There was also no other ordinary matter around. I couldn't figure out if such an event would have the same consequences as something like a quasar, super-super nova, etc. in some local stellar neighborhood. Let's say there is a solar system near the merger LIGO found the G-waves in but not close enough to get swallowed up. I know a quasar release of Electromagnetic energy would vaporize the solar system down to fundamental particles, but what if all that energy is in gravity waves? Is gravity so weak, as some of the other posts suggest, that 50 times E = m[c][/2] all-stars-in-the-universe would not have any effect because the weak effect of gravity negates the tremendous energy release talked about here? Or, is energy conserved, and 50 times E = m[c][/2] all-stars-in-the-universe is still 50 times E = m[c][/2] all stars-in-the-universe, no matter what form, and the gravitational waves from the merger will still vaporize the solar system? I can't figure out if I should imagine the same violent release of energy in such a merger through gravity waves that I imagine with the normal cosmic violent explosions of quasars, super-super nova, etc. or if I should imagine these ultra-energetic but super-weak gravity waves somehow passing through spacetime with hardly any influence on matter they encounter.
