Do gravity waves transmit gravity?


Isn't gravity supposed to be like an illusion created by the interaction of matter and space/time? How come gravity is being transmitted by waves like light or xrays? Isn't it better just to say these are "ripples in space/time"? I am hoping some scientist out there in hub land can tackle these questions. Also if these gravity waves were created during the big bang why aren't they perceivable in the "background radiation" that scientists have already found? Why are they limited to huge twin black holes?

    Thanks.

    Do you think gravity waves transmit gravity similar to the way a photon transmits light? Could it be theoretically possible to have a gravity torch for example.
