8.3 - Conventional View of Wave Motion

The orthodox view of a wave and wave motion is centered around a sine wave or similar configuration. In general this wave model is a measurement of a quantity and/or polarity of energy, sound pressure or sound power (amplitude), viewed over time, as the wave passes a sensing device such as a microphone. Empirical measurements have been made of pressure or power fluctuations over time and a plotting of these measurements creates the typical sine wave form. There doesn't seem to be much said about the nature of that wave itself or the Positive or negative phase. Of which parameters, we (SVP) are coming to see numerous attributes and dynamics. (See Eighteen Attributes or Dimensions) Orthodoxy does recognize that during the Positive or compression phase the media substance does compress or bunch up then in the negative phase the media disperses or rarefies. Orthodoxy erroneously assumes this periodic gathering together and dispersing of the media substance is due to physical forcing of the particles together or them somehow pulling away from each other during the rarefaction phase. In Figure 8.2 - Compression Wave Phase Illustration are shown both models of sine wave along side compression/rarefaction illustrations. It turns out there are many things happening during the compression and rarefaction phases. See Syntropy and Entropy as also 9.30 - Eighteen Attributes of a Wave, 12.11 - Eighteen Attributes or Dimensions and Eighteen Attributes or Dimensions.
