: Time in the days of Newton was absolute, the : way you seem to think of it. Your question : shows that much.

Dont put me into Newtons box. Please.

: Einstein put forth the postulate that time and : space are relative things, there is no absolute : viewpoint (that we can find). This means that : when you measure how fast an object is going, : you must measure it relative to something else.

Of course, if space dont have form. But, what it has to do issue, that time is measuring unit. Not real exist thing. Material is only real exist thing at space. We look the space one point. It is absolute point of us. We cannot do it other way.? If we do, we dont have basic, where stand.

: The question of whether or not time stops is : not illogical, to a certain observer, it does : appear to.

Question is.
