Let's address some of your points using analogies.
What you see as the physical world is not solid AT ALL, but rather
very much like a sea of bouncing rubber balls that have some sort
of "Space" in between them and where each bouncing & spinning ball
is attracted to the nearest neighbouring ball like ballroom dancers
holding on to each other for dear life.
Zoom Yourself way above this churning sea of bouncing balls
and what you see is a flat surface with some ripples in it
but from your way-up-there perspective, you feel like you could
actually WALK on that seemingly flat surface. --- Zoom back down
and you'll see that surface for what it really is --- A Vast Churning
sea of bouncing & spinning rubber balls.
Our Universe works MUCH the same way. Our bodies are made up of
bouncing, spinning atoms of specific sizes and mass (aka Weight)
that stick close by other atoms of similar types or energies.
When you press your fingers into your hand, your NOT really touching
your hand, but rather pushing more than a few of the bouncing balls
that form the surface of a finger into a larger sea of other bouncing
spinning balls which form the surface of your hand.
And much like dipping your hand into the surface of flowing,
rippling water, you're just moving the water out of the way until you hit
bottom or something more solid which are balls that are larger and
heavier than the one's right on the surface of your hand.
Our greater Universe is also like those magnetically sticking together
yet bouncy spinning balls called atoms which are made of even smaller
bouncy spinning items called quarks of which there are a confirmed
6 types & sizes or "Masses/Weights" plus a possible 7th type of Quark.
And these Quarks are probably made up of something called the
quantum foam which bubbles, boils and swarms together like
a messy bubble bath.
So what you think is solid matter, like yourself!, is really
just a mess of tiny bubbles and balls that pop, boil, bounce and spin
in a confined space held together by magnetic-like forces to cause
that foamy mess to form spheres of matter such as quarks, then
form into larger atoms, then into even larger molecules, then cells,
then body organs and then finally your whole self.
Now that you know what matter is made of up, we'll use another analogy
to explain faster than light speed. Since space is a thick, messy
pool of watery matter, wouldn't it be easier and faster to climb out of that
heavy water pool and walk over to the other side running MUCH FASTER
than you could ever swim?
I think UFO's work using that concept by climbing out of our thick, messy
quantum foamy pool of a universe onto a clear and dry pool deck called
Extra-Dimensional space and they simply walk over to ANY edge
and then they dive right back in to where they want to be
in our universal pool.
Since walking/running through HyperDimensional "Air" is much
FASTER than SWIMMING in our thick watery universe, they get
to go where they want in a MUCH faster manner than us.
In order for these space aliens to climb out of our thick pool, they have
swim to a local swimming ladder (i.e. hyperspace portal) which allows
them to climb onto that clear dry hyperspace pool deck and our alien
friends do that by using enormous amounts of energy to dig a tunnel
that pushes away the messy, water foam of our universe
so that a passage to clear hyperspace can be entered (or jumped into).
Much like how you swim using your hands and feet to push water out behind
you for locomotion, you can use enormous electromagnetic or gravitational
energies to clear a path onto the hyperspace pool deck where you can then
walk or run to your next destination much faster than swimming
in our thick watery universe.
I hope that simplified explantion of quantum physics helps!
