Special relativity does not refer to one object as moving through space and the other still. This is the absolute space of Newton that relativity is exactly the opposite from. Objects move relative to each other. There is no preferred reference frame in SR. Also it does not imply space and time are identically the same thing. All it really demonstrates is that they have an equal weight in the laws of physics and that time and space intervals do get mixed together within each-other in coordinate transformations.
