*Ok, I apologize for being harsh, but I don't see how you could have "envisioned" this working. You would have needed to think of a way for a gravity wave - which requires mass to be created - to catalyze the creation of an identical gravity wave to itself, or a sub-component of itself that can be assembled into itself. That's the first step towards life. The very first one.
Life as we know it is based on atoms. Is there any way for an atom to catalyze the creation of an identical atom? It's not the gravitational waves themselves which need to be reproduced; it's the patterns in them.
