Err... not sure what you're getting at here, but time isn't a factor in "space." You can have time independant of any spatial quantity and you can have spatial quantities without time. If time slows down, you don't suddenly get lots and lots of "space."
It takes you longer to get across the space, but the space hasn't expanded.

I propose time is a consequence of moving from one unit of space to the next. The speed of movement determines the perception of time. If you were to stop moving completely, relative to space itself, the passage of time would approach infinity and to everyone else in the universe you would instantly disintegrate, long since dead from old age and rotted away.
So time is just a measurment of a certain distance travelled at a certain speed. I dont see how the two variables can be equated, but my education lacks so this is all speculation on my part.

Why...why...WHY...am I still pondering this?! Perhaps because Space, Time, Matter and Energy are constantly slung around as a package deal in all the Science forums or something. (Not that THAT means anything.)
Okay, just maybe it DOES mean something! Can Space and Time switch places like Matter and Energy...and is there a FORMULA forwarded by a reputable source to prove it? Help me out here, folks.

Better yet, what do:
E'=2mc
E''=2m
and
Int. E=(mc^3)/3 + C
mean?
