The Cause of Time is Self Desiring Love.

The apparent passage of time is a result of Self desiring Love. Self is at any time one not wanting to be alone. So when two - who are in reality one not wanting to be alone - come together in this realization, in this state of ecstatic love-bliss known as ananda, time does indeed appear to come to a halt or to a stop because Self has completely aligned itself with its underlying mission; this mission it is to love and be loved. Such is the essence of Svatantra. It is two people realizing that one is two for companionship, friendship, love; the one and only reason for life.
