Yes, totally agree. Everything in the universe is in motion and so at any given time a particle will be at a certain point in the universe. So space and time are linked together, in motion, and if you are at the speed of light, time for you stops and therefore distance stops meaning anything. Bottom line : space/time is a package.

Yes, by putting it into a box and saying it's constrained is the same as saying the center of the box is defined as the "origin" (0,0,0) and therefore the ball is always at the same place. But that's no different than saying the box is "now" and therefore the ball is always at the same time

If I am holding the box .. relative to me it is not flowing neither in time nor space. To the best of my understanding absolute space does not exist.

That's my point. You have constrained it in time in the same fashion that you have constrained it in space
To the best of my understanding absolute space does not exist.
