Space warp bubble speed?

  1. Jul 11, 2012 #1
    If you were able to create a bubble that was seperate from this universe space/time, would that bubble if standing still allow space/time to move around it thus making it appear as if you actually moved through space, even though space/time moved around you. Since we are moving thru space at 2.7 million MPH, would the 'bubble' move that fast without having actually directly moved???

    We're not moving at the speed of light. We're in an awkward situation where light bounces off of us that fast but we're moving at 746ft per second or whatever the rotational speed of the Earth is.

    That is a mighty big if, so big that I think you have stepped outside the bounds of known physics. On this board we must stay within those bounds.
