If it can be donne how is it contained?
Is is spinning within a reflective sphere?
is it loosing energy while it spins? (assume perfect mirror and vacuum)

Dahhh, may sound silly but just asking anyway!

maybe our current know how does not allo for discussion of a topic like this...

Yeah that stuff is over my head. My best guess is that perhapse it could be done through magnetic manipulation, but thats just a thought. I used to debate this kind of stuff with a friend of mine and we always came to the same conclusion, we simply don't know enough about the subject.

Yes we can

We can do all sorts of neat things with light, like slowing it down
and speeding it up
and teleport it

You should check this one in Switzerland they have made a solid-state device capable of storing photons.
I remember that in the Large Hadron Collider they manipulate the photons with
magnetic force.

Here is the link of how they do it.
