" Because the intuitive human reaction is to put yourself at the center of the universe and view all other objects using your self as a standard. "

That's right, but it means we need to search for new replacement standards. We have found some but not all. And some physicists seem to believe that, becase of quantum mechanics, we are in fact the center not only of the universe but of all existence.

" Im not sure what line of reasoning youre using to come to that conclusion.
Can you give me a better idea how you determined a faster then light travel is required? "

I may be wrong, but it seems your hypothesis can only work if the gravitational field travels faster than the object itself, so that by the time the object is in a new position its "ghost field" is already there. It's sort of what you need to see your own body from "outside" - if you travel faster than light and look behind, you can see yourself (a true out-of-body experience!).
