My understanding is that, in science, theories are not proven correct. The best one can do is keep trying to prove them wrong. “After a century of trying”, success is singularly lacking, as far as SR and GR are concerned. Einstein made mistakes. Hans Ohanian filled a book with them. Don’t read it if you have a glowing opinion of Einstein as a person, which you want to preserve.
Rovelli has just described the Principle of Least Action, but since you believe that Action is a mystery beyond the comprehnson of mere mortals you have to reject it as mumbo jumbo
Actually physics postulates that the big bang started from a singularity which probably contains a small "amount" of distance. According to quantum theory the singularity will have an Action of h (Planck's constant) and will "contain" energy of E=h/t where t = wavelength (of singularity) / SOL.

It is the means by which humans describe and examine some of their own postulates.The equation E = hf describes photons, not singularities.I am sure you will one day unlock the secret of creation, but I doubt that it can be done by shoving every stick-like object into anything that looks like a keyhole.
Actually, when I say "tiniest" amount of distance, I am talking relatively. There only needs to be the existence of a single continuous entity for it to "contain" an infinite amount of "anything" that can be described as a concept, including time. What we experience as our reality is a digital universe which is one of the "things" contained in the continuous entity that we are part of, that approximates the continuous entity. Phew!:)
Then take a perfect vacuum
Time is a fundamental concept. Without it you would have no energy equations. Time is implicit in the units of the gravitational constant and so underpins gravity. If it wasn't fundamental we would have ignored it. A snapshot of events does not require time but our universe is not a static snapshot.
It means the computer program can function without any reference to time. In computer programs, if time needs to be referenced, it is done via a special time-based object. A computer program will always take time to complete.
