No, you don't. You have no idea how it's built, how it's used, nor what it can't do.

For you to make the declaration you did, then you must provide a method of defining mass with a ruler. Since you cannot, your premise that all existence can be described using only space and time is wrong. If you want to do science, you have to test your hypotheses; testing requires measurement and the ability to create an experiment which will falsify your hypothesis.
