or is gravity only measure with time

TIME is inherent movement of ALL Mass in the direction of the 4th dimension as a constant speed (c/sqrt 2). a particle of Mass is ultimately a 4D "dimple" in Time space. A lot of mass together makes a bigger "dimple" or Curvature in Time space,

GRAVITY is the INERTIA we feel as our mass "takes the curve" (because of the time motion) in the vicinity of a massive object. Like making a turn on a sharp curve in a closed van with no windows. We feel a force pulling us to the side.----------From our 3D POV we are unaware of the 4D time "motion", nor can we see the 4D curvature of space---it like like a straight line to us.-------But it APPEARS a force is PULLING us towards the mass----really the inertia as we take the curve. We cannot sense the 4th Dimension---but the inertia we feel from it we call GRAVITY. Remember we may not be moving at all with respect to our 3D reality but TIME is CONSTANT movement in the 4D direction we are unaware of. When it hits a curve in space we DO feel it as gravity.

Gravity power is the cause of motion. Time is a construct that determines how fast motion took place. Its vely simple.

Some of these answers are correct partially. Gravity is a force separate from time

Time as we measure it varies at high velocities and in gravitational fields

In the gravitation field of a black hole time travels slower for the person or object in the field

Gravity is a function of mass that occupies the spatial dimension. Time stands alone in the temporal dimension.

Although connected, they are two different things.

No, gravity does not cause time but can influence it. Time cannot influence gravity or mass.

This follows general relativity.

Things fall in a gravitational field for the same reason that they move forward in time. But nobody knows what that reason is.

Gravity tells us the relative difference in how we measure space and time at different locations in a gravitational field. The most famous example is the time dilation between an external observer and an observer near the event horizon at a black hole. The rate of time for the observer near the event approaches zero with respect to the external observer. It’s important to understand that like relative motion, time always appears normal to you wherever you are in a gravitational field so there is no notion of an absolute time.

Einstein believed that you really couldn’t separate matter/energy, gravity, and spacetime. No matter/energy, then no gravity. No gravity, then no spacetime.

Hmm..

1. Time stops at black hole gravity levels

2. Sub atomic particles, which exhibit zero to little gravity interactions, don't follow time's rules the way we experience them

Maybe?

No, time does not pass slower for a person in the gravitational field - it passes slower RELATIVE to someone in a lesser field. Time passes perfectly normally for someone at the event horizon.
