## Abstract

Based upon the latest experimental facts and achievements of theoretical thinking in modern physics, this paper advances two postulates about the properties of space-time: **1)** the principle of the absolute reference frame, and **2)** the principle of constant average circulation speed of light. Obviously, these two postulates are different from those of Einstein?s special relativity theory (SRT). They are the fundamental postulates for constructing a new space-time theory, here called ?standard space-time theory?. Strictly from the above two postulates, this paper derives the space-time coordinate transformation between an ordinary inertial reference frame and the standard inertial reference frame, *i.e*. the Generalized Galilean Transformation (GGT).
