So time implys that there is motion and vice versa?
That's hard to wrap my head around.

From where we are currently, one requires the other. You cannot do this, then that, without having the "then" in there. And "then" implies time, as first then second has an order.
From a perspective outside of our 3d existence...maybe not. Perhaps time and space exist in a complex, 4d construct. You can choose to go to a place/time within the full range of what exists using coordinates that would put you in, say, Spain in 1722.
Who knows...we are kind of locked into observing only what we exist within.
In theory it should be possible that something could be completely still for at least a period in time. Would it have inner movement among its atoms? That is a change in state. Interacting with the surroundings (gravity, EM, etc)? Another change in state. So Im not sure it is possible to completely halt the state changes in an location, beyond perhaps a black hole.
