is this a suitable explanation of relativity?

this isn't my explanation, but I was just wondering what others thought:

"Einstein's special theory of relativity showed that an object can be of two different sizes for two different people and that they can perceive the time between two events to have different duratoins. His General theory of relativity suggested that space itself is not just a stage for the material world to act on, but is an active participant in the play. Space, for example, gets bent out of shape by any matter that is hanging about in it. The relativity theory talks a lot about "frames of reference." From the point of view of relativity, things standing still with respect to one another are in the same frame of reference. Things moving relative to one another have different frames of reference. Distorting a frame of reference is equivalent to distorting space itself, and it is this distortion, by the agency of gravity, that the general theory predicts."

I don't know too much about general relativity, but is the part at the beginning, about special relativity true? I thought if two objects were of different velocities (rather than size) that the duration changes?

 I'm not 100% sure to be honest, but i do think that the velocity, not only the size, has an effect on the duration of whatever the object is doing, such as moving across your line of vision or something. For example, if you're running at the speed of light, meaning your V = C, then gamma = infinity. And gamma is basically the time dilation factor. So while moving at the speed of light, gamma will simply slow things down infinitely, which is why time stops. So i'm not 100% sure, but the velocity of something MUST be included into the equation for determining gamma, or how much the duration of something will be slowed down by. Therefore, yes, different velocities lead to different durations. But the size still could matter too, because i know that in some way the mass of something effects the speed that it can move at, because the more mass of an object, the more energy is required to move it at a high speed. Hope that made sense and actually answered your question.
