It seems to me that gravitational bodies radiate gravitational energy continuously, without losing mass/energy. It that true? Here are my reasons for thinking as such. First of all, when I say “radiate” I just mean that in a general way. I don’t mean radiation as in electromagnetic radiation, and I don’t mean gravitons or anything else. I just mean gravitation, whatever that might be. 1: The gravitation of a body weakens as the inverse of the square of the distance from that body, all the way to infinity. If a second body it attracted to the first body due to gravitation, then energy is transferred (potential to kinetic) and work is done. Now if the first gravitating body is moved to another location (ignore the energy required to do this), then I assume it’s gravitational effects with respect to it’s new location are felt only after a delay, since gravitation is restricted by the speed of light. This indicates to me that new “gravitation” is in some sense being “emitted” or “radiated” continually. In fact the gravitating body doesn’t need to be moved at all. It seems as though it is emitting gravitation continuously, and can (does) expend (gravitational) energy when acting on other bodies in it’s vicinity. Does it have to do with zero point field or something? 2: Also, due to the equivalence principle, wouldn’t charged particles emit Larmor radiation in a gravitational field the same as due to an equivalent acceleration? If that is true, is the gravitational body less massive after emitting Larmor radiation, or does the continuous gravitation provide the energy? BTW, I’m not looking for perpetual motion or tapping into infinite energy source or anything stupid like that. Just trying to understand. Thanks.
