There is no way I will get some sleep any time soon, as the neighbours are still shooting fireworks like it’s the 4th of july. So I might as well create another (short this time) post.
Here we go.
Imagine you are in your memory palace and there is a flagpost that you want to go around to get to the next location really fast, what do you do? Well, what I do is holding on to te flagpost and swing around it (or use a rope to to the same; method used in some Batman movie that I don’t remember).
Well, because in the simulation, that is the memory palace, the laws of nature still apply to some extend. Put in another way: it is easier to work with these laws than it is to brake them completely.
Being somewhat stuck with reality in the memory palace (or in your imagination in general) leads to an interesting question: is the speed of moving (not teleporting) in the memory palace limited by this, or is the computing speed of the brain the ultimate determining factor?
