Is every physical property relative?

From my blog:

Disclaimer: I am not a physicist.
Einstein has discovered that some physical properties are relative.
In this blog post I present the conjecture that essentially all physical properties are relative. I do not formulate exact details of this theory, a thing which could be measurable, but just a broad class of specific theories. Nevertheless the theory which I formulate in this blog post is mathematically exact.
Let P is the set of (relative) physical properties. We will make L into poset by the order of which properties are more relative and which are less relative. (With the axiom that less relative properties may be always restored knowing more relative properties.)
Consider the filter F characterizing positive infinity (that is infinitely least relative properties) on the poset P.
My conjecture: The only really existing (nonrelative) physical properties are values of relative properties on the filter F.
Formally: The only really existing physical object is a monovalued reloid* whose domain is the filter F.
My theory may become into something verifiable by experiment if someone specifies what is F exactly.
* "reloid" is defined in my math research: http://www.mathematics21.org/algebraicgeneraltopology.html
