The Moon

If the moon and earth are the remnants of two of Sol's planets' colliding those eons ago, is the moon too a source of diamonds and gold? Has any human begun to seek land or lease there?
—General Pudstone G. Purview, Liber Aurum

Instead of building bigger & bigger engines to carry small payloads against natural forces, a thing that greatly limits the extent of any "mission" to an obviously unacceptable extent if it is in fact unnecessary, why not figure out how to hold the resistances themselves, and move by eating their inertial energy?

Since we'd be drawing energy from one specific space-time curvature, we'd grab the end-point & travel directly through space-time's curves instead of around them, and the length of our trip would be determined only by the brilliance of our inertial engine in handling the heightened level of sensitivities such a thing would require, & its strength and stamina in enduring that constant seemingly impossible position of stretching for and holding that last tiny point of the correct set of inertial threads.

Yet if one did this, would one tear an irreperable hole in space-time's fabric by eating the inertia in question instead of abiding by the apparent rule which forces one to overcome it instead? Or would spacetime bend point-to-point, & not tear?

And if spacetime's fabric would tear, are we not faced with the implication that a larger spacetime contextualizes our own?
