190:2.1 From the time of the morontia resurrection until the hour of his spirit ascension on high, Jesus made nineteen separate appearances in visible form to his believers on earth. He did not appear to his enemies nor to those who could not make spiritual use of his manifestation in visible form. His first appearance was to the five women at the tomb; his second, to Mary Magdalene, also at the tomb.

This one has me stumbling a bit too.
Why did the stone need to be moved away?

"to remove the body of Jesus from the tomb"

Yet the cloths are in place, a near-instantaneous dissolution process.

Perhaps the dust has to be removed?

(2025.4) 189:4.3 A little before three o’clock this Sunday morning, when the first signs of day began to appear in the east, five of the women started out for the tomb of Jesus. They had prepared an abundance of special embalming lotions, and they carried many linen bandages with them. It was their purpose more thoroughly to give the body of Jesus its death anointing and more carefully to wrap it up with the new bandages.

If the stone wasn't moved etc. these five women would have eventually seen an empty tomb and so would the Roman soldiers who moved the stone.... now that's a thought!

I think they wanted humans to walk in and see that there was nothing there.

It's possible that the procedure of accelerating time required a reasonable amount of open air around the body. Heavy stones could dampen electromagnetic fields, absorb nuclear particles and ultimatons. Whatever particles are responsible for the action of doing that would probably need to be pulled in from the surrounding area.
