The Earth (and its inhabitants) is rotating and moving along with the Milkyway at approximately 600 000 m/h (not the of the Earth's rotation). Now let's say I'm in my spaceship in earth orbit watching the earth spin, I too would be traveling around 600 000 m/h (or 168 m/s) the same as the Earth, correct?
Now let me compare myself to a ball on a conveyor belt. From my view point I am stationary, but to an outside observer I am moving with the conveyor belt. Now lets say I(the ball) have some method of producing motion in the opposite direction of the belt; in effect, I now look stationary to the outside observer (and as to make the motion unnoticeable, the ball is completely uniform).
Back to my spaceship, what if I were to leave Earth's orbit and travel against the rotation of the galaxy enough to cancel out the effects of motion like the ball and conveyor belt and once at that point give no more means of motion. If all of this were to be correctly implemented, then:
- Would I effectively have no motion?
- Would I see the Galaxy traveling 600 000 m/h around me (assuming I would never hit something)?
- Would I experience time differently?
- If I would see the Galaxy moving, what would I see?
