[S.P.] "To move" means to change one's position IN REFERENCE to a point which is taken to be fixed. I mean that, by definition, any movement is referential, but not absolute. If the two light beams are sent in opposite directions, then their relational speed of recession equals 2c.
As to the energy, it does not need to move at all since it is always as if "already there". I mean that there is nothing like vacuum in sense "devoid of everything including energy". Instead of the vacuum we should talk about the "optimally energized space", or something like that. Then "somethingness" and "nothingness" are deviations from that optimality. At that, the total availability of the areas of "somethingness" and "nothingness" must strictly conserve. I mean that if there is a material body (like a star) as the area of "somethingness" in a space, then there must be a correspondent amount of space which is characterized as "nothingness". That is why the distances between the stars and galaxies are so huge. What moves in the "optimally energized space" is information about the point of space that has to be activated to produce therein a certain deviation from optimality -- i.e., a material phenomenon of a certain energy value.
The element of Reality which can be characterized simultaneously by the informational, material, and energetic characteristics I call an integrated information system. If "somethingness" (e.g., a material object) formalized as the integrated information system will change its informational characteristic in a certain way, then this object may disappear in one point of space and instantaneously appear in some other point of space. (It may even disappear in the present, and appear in the past, or in the future).
According to the mentioned above law of conservation, if the areas of space which are characterized as "nothingness" strive to return to their optimal energetic state, then this will force the areas of space which are characterized as "somethingness" (i.e., material bodies, planets, stars) to attract each other, and to perform other actions which result, say, in galactic spirality, in hexagonal distribution of galaxies, etc. Only in this way these areas can preserve their "somethingness". Reality -- it is a totality of "somethingness" and "nothingness", and it is such as it is because of the way of "somethingness" preservation.

[S.P.] I would like to second this idea by and large, since I believe that we should make difference between the movement of light and the propagation of information. The last may be instantaneous, and may even be sent as to the past, so into the future.
