: Dont put me into Newtons box. Please.

I did not put you there, I told you you were there, you are welcome.

: : 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 issue, time is only a measurement, is confronted by what I said. If time is different for me and for you, then it is possible for time to stop at the event horizon of a Black Hole. Because our measurements are relative, that is, not absolute, the very concept of time can become complicated. If you want to get to a point where you can better understand time, may I suggest a few books. Black Holes and Time Warps, Kip Thorne, A Brief History Of Time, Stephen Hawking. You can find more at your library.
