At best, it's a circular argument and therefore invalid.
Space-time is a reference system for observing and quantifying physical and material reality. In this physical reality, time and space always appear to be connected
Matter particles must substitute for spacetime events.
Matter particles must be made of spacetime events.
Replace line 2 with:2 Matter particles, whatever they are made of, must substitute for spacetime events. 1.
I got out of bed this morning.That's a spacetime event.
I mean with "spacetime event" the point in space together with the local time of the point.
the speed of light reference
Matter follows geodesics in spacetime therefore it respects spacetime. Why should anything not made of spacetime respect it?
Why should water respect metal pipes when the metal pipes aren't made out of water?
They are both made of spacetime events.
You still have not told is what you think the phrase "spacetime event" means.

Pipes are commonly made from copper, for example.
BC got out of bed (bed being a location in space) this morning (a local time of the point).So you at least seem to have some clue as to what an event is, but him getting up this morning is still not a proton.
