    We're very far away from the simple definition of a radio signal.
    The fact is, even the ignition noise from your crapped out humped over VW Bug distributor is a radio signal, albeit a very spiky one.

    I brought that up because the very first actual "RADIO" transmitters weren't a whole lot different.

    Radio signals are basically the relationship between frequency and wavelength. The Radio Signals are used for communication; television, cellphones etc. They all receive radio waves and change into mechanical vibration in the speaker to develop sound waves that can audible.

    Its an electronic oscillation that carries audio and visual data..

    EM... ElectroMagnetic radiation.

    A radio wave is a set bandwidth of EM where individual parts of the band create certain responses. Only very high frequency EM waves can penetrate solid objects. Older pack cell phones needed line of site to operate and were so low in frequency they left dead spots. Today's cell phones are in the range of 4-5Ghz and can get in just about any where, although dense objects can block its radiation.

    No, it proves a CREATOR developed a set of laws that govern our physical universe.

    Radio waves can travel through solid objects and travel in a vacuum and the only way we know it exists is that we can detect its passing. It is real and so it exists and since it exists it must occupy space and time; making it an element that someday will be added to the periodic table.

    Sub atomic particle that has a resonate frequency.

    There are many theroy's.

    I believe there is a way to use a source of energy that splits a water molecule and then reunites this molecule giving off more energy than was needed to cause the split in the first place. The action-reaction repeats itself giving off a continuous energy wave in the form of heat. This heat in turn can create mechanical energy that in turn can create electrical energy.

    I believe the key to this process is the frequency of the water molecule. If we can match this frequency the molecule will split apart and then re-unite in a continuous loop.

    This would defy the laws of conservation of energy because we are getting out more energy than was used to create this reaction in the first place or maybe not. Maybe there was an energy source in the beginning that just was not accounted for. That extra energy source is where photons come in but I have no earthly idea why.

    Wrong. It isn't a piece of physical matter.
    Sorry but your statement makes absolutely no sense.

    As far as we know. Since it takes time for them to move they must have a physical form. Just because modern science is not smart enough to figure it out doesnt mean its not physical.
