With all due respect , more nonsense. There is no space without space-time is nonsense, space-time did not exist until Einstein thought it up, before that it was just space and Newtons laws of gravity. Einstein interpreted it differently to Newton, but painting things different colours does not change the thing. How can we contribute space-time is the same as space when space is defined : 1.1 a continuous area or expanse which is free, available, or unoccupied. Quite clearly space-time and space are two separate things , not one and the same thing by definition. Please stop talking nonsense when we have definitions of things, it is not difficult to google a definition if you are unsure to what it means. Please define the mechanism of time of space according to the provided definition of space ? Time occupies space, time is things that can age or decay , time is not some magical entity that exists independent of matter. Again nonsense I defined space as the reference frame It is necessarily and it is self evident.
