    Matter standing wave movement.

    Is it possible that matter can move through space as a standing wave, that can move at the speed of light?

    A standing wave does not move.

    Thanks tusenfem, I was just wondering if there was any proposed mechanism where matter might not be moving, but still be carried at near the speed of light. Besides the expansion of the universe. Perhaps like a sailboat?

    The Alcubierre metric, underlying the so-called Alcubierre warp drive, seems to be something like what you want. (But sailboats move, so perhaps not.)

    Thanks Grant, I figured out what I was looking for. I will be sharing it in an ATM some time next week.
