I'm wondering if there are any theories of how time would be experienced by a fixed point in the universe.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I realize the relative nature of the time dilation formula, but I find myself wondering if it would be any different if there was no movement at all.

I mean, after all - we're all moving through space, quite fast in fact, at 1.3 million miles per hour according to this article:

http://www.astrosociety.org/edu/publications/tnl/71/howfast.html

Is there an accepted theory on this? Or does the formula hold true? Theoretically it seems to me that, from the perspective of that fixed point in space, time would seem to stop all around it. Is this true?
