But what if you stoped in relation to space? If you lanched a probe and sent it directly away from the path of our Galaxy to the point where it was at rest in space in relation to the speed our galaxy moves or in relation to the speed of light, would time even exist?
If that probe had a telescope what would it see in a place where time does not exist? Seems like this would be an easy experiment to test. if you turned on a laser on this probe would it even emit light or would that light be traped due to time not existing like in a black hole?
If an object is not moving in relation to space does time exist?

Does time make sense without space? Can time exist with no matter, no physical reality? Can time exist without motion in general? Is time a logical and reasonable concept if there is no space?
Does space make sense without time? Can space exist without the passage of time? Can space exist without motion (the relationship between space and time is motion)? Is space a logical and reasonable concept if there is no time?
I recommend you look into a system of theory called the Reciprocal System. All the books written by its creator and much more are all online for free at their website - www.rstheory.org. The first book, which explains all the basics of the theory, can be found here - library.rstheory.org... I'd start on that book. In fact, I haven't read any of the books besides most of the first one (it's called Nothing But Motion), and my mind is still officially blown a year or so later, lol. This might be the first true complete unified field theory.
