Unless, of course, you forget you are talking about religion instead of something else. Besides the "speeds" of the capitals wouldn't match up anyway.
The earth is moving at the same speed anyway, and the dome is on top of itself, so when you are on top of it, since it's on the earth anyway, nothing,s gonna' change.
As you can "plainly" seek..
it's kind of a silly question..
unless you are talking about "adding" and extra proton to the "insides" -'of the first orbit'- anyway..
then the "whole size" is going to change dramatically...
making the "speed" of a straight line, the linear in this case anway irrelevant. It will increase, making moot the point of no "return", if i am able.
So it doesn't really matter what direction you are pointing in the first place, as long as you know what you are doing.
