Ok, ignoring the fact that permeability and permitivity have specific meanings, I will take the sense of your comment and ask how do you know? What measurements have you taken to prove this?If you push an object (ignoring friction) it has a resistance to acceleration. Just a thought.
There is no space, the box is full of air which has been forced out by the balloon which in turn has been filled by other air. I don't think the air or space passes through the air tight rubber.
I still don't get your point. You are only saying that in the end there is more space into the balloon which is obvious. Also, as the balloon expands the membrane of the balloon travels through space in all directions, with the result of more space inside the balloon. The pressure inside the balloon causes the membrane to travel in such a way,( supposing the balloon centre at rest).Your thought experiment is equivalent to having n number of atoms disposed in a circle. While you blow some air in the middle then the atoms travel on radials from the centre expanding the circle. But that has nothing to do with permeability and permittivity of free space. What do you want to prove? That space can pass through atoms? You can say that I suppose if you think of space as a medium. If you want you can think of inertia as a drag when accelerating through space. If space is a medium then you can also define a hypothetical free space that is not a medium for reference only. If space is not a medium then your experiment only says atoms or particles can travel through space by changing their position with time which we already know.
