:...Since motion is linear,

Not all motion is linear.

time is linear.

Motion need not be linear, and even if it was this need not follow.

:Without matter, and motion combined, there is nothing to change in the way of "relationships" among "physical" bodies. Time has one, and only one function. That is to describe some increment of change.

Time needn't be restricted to this function.

:Since increments, by definition, are unchanging (an inch is always an inch & a second is always a second) time is fixed.

This is simply not true. Time and distance intervals between events are relative, not absolute. A second between events for one observer's coordinate system is part time and part space between the events for another.

:In other words it won't warp or bend. If it warps it ain't time.

Since your assumption that space and time intervals has long sense been proven to be a Newtonian error, this does not follow.
