Ok lets say there is a spinning disc in space which had a small hole at its center. If somehow u were able to get the outside edge of the small hole in the center spinning close to the speed of light wouldnt the outside of the disc be spinning faster than the inside where the hole was and maybe achieve the speed of light.
