So what we call time and the 4th dimension really is saying, a three dimensional object in space is located at point A, a three dimensional object in space is located at point B.....

All of these points make up what we call time. You experience these points based on motion.

So 13 billion years could be a billion years to someone experiencing different motion. So there isn't any passage of time just motion which allows us to perceive different points of space-time at different and an ordered way and we perceive that order as a "passage of time."

To the above I will add that maybe it could only be a question o mass. I would say "time" has a different away of manifestation in proportion of the "mass of the object".
Saying. For a big mass (wave, mountain, planet, star, etc.. ) time "seems" to work slower (movement) than for small mass's ( a human, an insect, a bacteria, virus, atom's etc) where time "seems" to work faster (movement).

Time is a dimension that is traversed in a similar fashion to the xyz axis. The property of time that makes this often hard to realize is the constant forward motion of time (arrow of time) and the concept of Relativity.

What you think of time is actually a distance traveled through the time dimension which space is intrinsically linked, hence the name Space-Time.

So to pin point an actual space-time event you need four coordinates not the three many people think of. The real question though should not be 'Does the passage of time exist' It should be 'why is the arrow of time pointing in the direction it is?'

That question has no answer at this time.
