In other words, if we moved planet Earth to another galaxy, but you were in the same position relative to the Earth, then you would still have the same weight.

What it means is that whether we consider gravitational forces or electrostatic forces (between electrically charged bodies), or magnetostatic forces (between magnetized bodies), or electromagnetic forces (for example the Lorenz force and the Laplace force), or nuclear forces (for example between quarks and gluons), all of these types of forces have something in common, that they can only depend on the relative position of the bodies and their relative velocities.

Thanks for the answers.

On what subject will I learn more about these symmetries?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symmetry_(physics)

I was talking about the continuous symmetries of spacetime https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symmetry_(physics)#Continuous_symmetries

Which can be described by Lie Groups https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lie_group

So Lie groups, Continuous symmetries, Spacetime symmetries are the subjects.
