If I define it from locality then what you see will be your reality, as what I see will be mine. The reason we find them different is conceptual, meaning that to do this we have to compare our frames of reference relative each other. What that states to me is that you at no 'time' or 'place' ever will find a contradiction, other than conceptually, when comparing. But it doesn't answer the question of why it can happen, it just give me a reason, which then, to me, must be 'c'. If distances and time is 'plastic' relative motion, mass (& energy, whatever that is), then SpaceTime is plastic. And the 'plasticity' is defined locally. But we also have this 'radiation propagating' (and gravity). Radiation is what you observe, all measurements are done through, and in, it. Radiation is the constant 'c' joining my definition of a 'distance' and a 'time' to yours through Lorentz transformations. Gravity is something else, it's coupled to mass and to me representing a 'constant inertia' relative accelerated (uniform, but to me as I define it as inertia, all) motion. We define it in 'displacements' relative some positional 'point' (inside times arrow 'locally' defined). To see what I'm aiming on here we need to consider the equivalence principle, making all 'mass' constantly uniformly accelerating.. In fact, looking at this way there is no motion without a 'inertia' involved, at some stage, even though 'uniformly moving' at some later stage. That we can't define where that uniform motion came from doesn't state that there wasn't a 'inertia/acceleration/gravity' involved at a initial SpaceTime point. Although the idea of a 'inflation' makes it somewhat tricky. And then we have mass. And 'energy' as some weird idea of a 'ground state', as I see it. But compare that to indeterminacy.
