Hi,

If Earth stops rotating itself suddenly, I guess we will be flying in the universe.

But for a scenario, Lets assume nothing happens differently. (Oceans, nature and everything behaves normally like now)

Just Earth is not rotating. So can we survive?

* We are rotating with earth. Is it possible to live on another planet which rotates in different speed?

Just want to know if we can survive if the speed varies..

Well if the moon keeps orbiting, there would still be tides. But a day would last a year, which would make it mighty hot in the daytime and mighty cold at night.

I mainly want to know about our body and brain behavior in zero or less rotation speed.

No difference, Why should there be?

I thought we are rotating with the earth with the speed of 1000 miles per hour. So i guessed we will become unconscious or something.

Why? Since our whole refererece frame, the earth, buildings, air etc move at the same speed, we wouldn't even notice. People would weigh a (very) little more, especially at the equator.
