Galilean space-time renounces that use of co-ordinate systems such as x(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{3}and t_{1}because comparing two space-time co-ordinates such as x_{3}=1,2,3, t_{1}=1 and x_{3}=1,2,3,t_{1}=10 says you are lookingat the same point in space9 seconds apart. This is thought to be naive. But in special relativity, time is relative. And because there is no absolute space, would the notion of relative/personal space exist? As in, a moving co-ordinate system has its own space despite its motion.
