Time is a Consequence of Self desiring Love.

The answer to the question - is time emergent or fundamental? - is emergent. To be more precise. The singularity is self not wanting to be by itself. The purpose of self is fundamentally love. This in the proper understanding that love is synonymous with companionship and friendship. But in most simple terms. The purpose of self is love. Nothing new under the sun.
