Are We Really Moving At These Amazing Speeds?!

The earth rotates around its axis at the speed of 1,000 mph and even moving at that very fast speed it still takes the earth 24 hours to revolve around itself just once!

The earth orbits around the sun at the speed of 67,000 mph and even moving at that incredible speed it still takes the earth 365 days 1 year to go around the sun just one time!

Our solar system is traveling through and around the milkyway galaxy at the speed of 550,000 mph and even moving at that fantastic speed it still takes our solar system 225 million years to complete just one revolution!

Our milkyway galaxy is moving through the observable universe at the mind bending speed of 2,237,000 mph!

The speed of light is an astounding 186,000 miles per second which is a stunning 670,616,629 mph!

Walk outside and does it feel and seem like you and i and everything else is really moving that fast?...No!...Not at all...

Look out into the void of ancient light and does it appear as if eveything you see up there is actually moving at those almost incomprehensible speeds?...No!...Not at all...

So are we really?!...Maybe not?!...I dont know?!...But thats what they're telling us!

Disappearing Galaxies...

While special relativity constrains objects in the universe from moving faster than light with respect to each other when they are in a local, dynamical relationship, it places no theoretical constraint on the relative motion between two objects that are globally separated and out of causal contact. It is thus possible for two objects to be become separated in space by more than the distance light could have travelled, which means that, if the expansion remains constant, the two objects will never come into causal contact. For example, galaxies that are more than approximately 4.5 gigaparsecs away from us are expanding away from us faster than light. We can still see such objects because the universe in the past was expanding more slowly than it is today, so the ancient light being received from these objects is still able to reach us, though if the expansion continues unabated there will never come a time that we will see the light from such objects being produced today (on a so-called "space-like slice of spacetime") and vice-versa because space itself is expanding between Earth and the source faster than any light can be exchanged.

When we look up and see the immense void of outer space we are not seeing what it looks like now but what it looked like a long time ago, because we are looking and seeing backwards in time,just as when we are shown a photograph of a galaxy thats say five billion light years away,we are seeing that galaxy the way it looked five billion years ago,not what it looks like now and so most likely that galaxy doesnt even exist anymore and so we dont even know what most of outer space really looks like and we'll probably never be able to tell,because most of outer space doesnt even exist anymore in the ways we are able to think and see and the recession speed of outer space has been expanding outwards in all directions larger and larger while accelerating exponentially faster and faster for so very long that the actuall size and speed of the current universe must be unbelievably vast and unimaginably fast and far beyond our ability to comprehend as its ever more distant ancient light will never be able to reach our eyes...

The vastness of the Earth, Sun and universe makes it so it does not seem like we are going that fast.

Just drive on any highway at the same speed as the vehicle in front of you, it will soon seem like you're not moving at all.

I'm in my seventh decade on Earth. I know things.

This reality might be a holographic illusion > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holographic_principle

Our continuous acceleration for over 13,000,000,000 years may be the result of you and i and planet earth and or maybe our entire solar system and perhaps beyond being pulled across the vast event horizon of a super massive black hole...

Super massive black holes create every galaxy by bringing together clusters of billions upon billions of swirling stars closer and closer around them and eventually down into their singularities and there are billions upon billions of galaxies and there must also be billions upon billions of super massive black holes and so the void of ancient light that we call outer space could actually be within the singularity of a super massive black hole and or could actually be the singularity itself...

While turning off your lights and increasing the volume...

Enlarge these mind blowing images for more profound visual effect...

Then while walking or driving along look across to your left and right and notice the illusion of Parallax views where and when relatively nearby and distant objects appear to be moving but are really not moving at all just like the motions of outer space may also be (holographic) illusions that are not really moving at all > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parallax

I am glad I live closer to the North Pole. I bet folks at the Equator get even dizzier than I.
