What is not relative in this world? Is there something at all?

As far as I know everything around us is relative in nature. When we say that a car is moving, according to a person sitting in the car, the world is moving. So is there something at all that is not relative? And please don't include the speed of light which would be same. I am talking about something which is fixed that is, same from whichever angle you may look at it.

  • Nov 14 2013: If we say that everything is relative, then that would me that this truth is non relative. The only Bsolute truth is that nothing is absolutely true. It's a kind of paradox/circular reasoning.
