    Would the presence of a large gravitational object cause time dialation in the surrounding gravitational field, if two gravitational fields were overlapping or at the border of the gravitational field?

    Yes, according to my thinking Gravitational field alignment and not the curvature of space and time would be the restrictive agent governing in the dialation of time for the lesser gravitational field. In other words, the closer your generating field is to a more massive generating field the rate of time is governed by the largest density of the fields which synchronizes the fields by bringing the objects together, but it is just my opinion, Dr. Einstein.

    I would agree with that. To help you visualize it you could perhaps use the famous "rubber sheet" analogy. It isn't a perfect analogy, but it'll do for now:

    You see the depression caused by mass M? Now imagine you dropped another similar mass M onto the rubber sheet on the other side of object P. The rubber sheet near object P wouldn't stay at the same height. P wouldn't be left sitting on a ridge between the two masses. It would go downwards, deeper into the combined gravity well, and would experience more time dilation.

    Note that there's a way of looking at this wherein "time dilation" is what a "gravitational field" actually is. But it isn't necessary to your question.

    I see time and space as by-product of the decay of matter into the gravitational wave.

    I think that this is wrong. Matter doesn't decay into gravitational waves.

    Of course you think that is wrong, almost no one has ever considered it. But I have been reviewing a few equations and possibilities and I think that it is possible and I am wondering about the details of the mechanism to sustain mass consistancy through a reserve of background radiation. Kind of like a battery running a clock that sends out music. The clock doesn't change as the battery decreases in potential energy. I am wondering is it possible to increase the energy of a photon while in motion. What happens to a photon when it travels through a range of specific types of different radiation. Can a photon change in a medium of E-M radiation?
