You know you're in trouble when you start making the visual aids your character needs . . .

Does Wizard go higher? Maybe they haven't tried, since anyone exposed to that much X-Ray and Gamma just died instead.

I suspect we'll find out, the first time someone tries that method of killing Xen.

Actually he probably got X-rayed several times after the Assassination attempt. He'd have been in the healing trance . . . but it's interesting to speculate that he was getting periodically dosed with energy he badly needed.

"I was a little worried, how high we had to set the power, but even then the plates were . . . barely adequate." Doctor shakes head. "We had the technician in, but he said the emitter and power supply were fine."

You may be in trouble
But we will enjoy your working through it. I'm sure

And the fan club rejoices!

I don't know if you want to consider gravity waves, but theoretical wavelengths run from 100 km (neutron star binary) up to several light-years (supermassive black hole binary). See http://www.tapir.caltech.edu/~teviet/Waves/gwave_spectrum.html

Re: witches
The Oners don't know enough about how the witches' tap gravity to even guess if it's frequency dependent.

Re: witches
Yeah, Real was pretty clear about that when she used your visual aid in class ...

Re: witches
And they're flexing of the local "gravity well" "slope" is probably too weak to cause Gravity waves.

Re: witches
Gravity ripples perhaps?

Re: witches
Possible explanation?

Since gravity moves at the speed of light, and it's wavelengths are measured from hundreds of kilometers to light years, I suggest the following:
Witches source from gravity by the simple capture of literal "potential energy" (i.e. the energy potential of an object or state inherent on its position within the gravity well itself) by quantum connecting to the potential energy through the in-between. They don't have to see the energy to be able to gather power, but having the additional gene complexes that enable multi-dimensional sight then enables the witches to more easily see and manipulate multi-dimensional phenomenon, such as corridors and cones/cylinders and such. This is why only those with some form of the witch power gene are able to open gates.

It is possible to see the in-between without being able to manipulate it, due to either lack of power or, for lack of a better term, "handles" which are provided by the witch power gene group. These people are normally limited to manipulation of such things as multi-dimensional bubbles, and their offshoot products, such as corridors. Systemic addition of the witch power gene to an individual who already possesses the ability to see the in-between would likely result in sporadic gate making ability, unless properly trained in its use.
