Subject: Is this another case of "cut and paste" or earthquake frequencies

Guys, Gals,

This might take a while to make my point, but I am going to try anyway.
They say a turtle make no progress unless he sticks his head out of his

There are similarities between Radio wave propagation and say waves in a
IE the drop a stone into a pool and watch the omni directional waves
propagate from the source.

Does it seem to you that when "they" designed physics... the same principles
got cut and pasted into different disciplines?

Sound waves versus light waves, have similarities.

Lots of disciplines deal with phase relationships, compression, dilatation,

Physical length of an object, the medium,  the atmosphere its in,
temperature etc. all play a role with a given object resonating.

So... Here is one of my questions..

Is an earthquake an event that imparts a huge amount of energy in to the

For instance as a rubber mallet strikes a tuning fork?

The fork resonates at it's fundamental freq. and harmonics etc.

SO is the earth resonating with the impact of the rubber mallet earthquake?

And it does this at frequencies of 1/50 of Hertz to say 10 Hertz or so.

The earth is not a homogenous unit so there is probably all sorts of
reflection and refraction going on internally.

I want to try to apply some of the basic ideas from Radio Wave propagation
for earthquake propagation.

Boy, this is not making sense.....

Better I should think about this more..
