If an event takes place there is the time expired it took to transpire. There is time between evens... there is time between space in the vast NOTHINGNESS.
The time you are saying it takes to 'move' from one part of space to another is determined by the velocity of an object moving between fixed reference points. The 'space' between objects, and not time, is divided into units that define how long an event takes to transpire - years, months, days, hours, minutes and seconds etc. Depending on the objects velocity. Take away the moving object and reference points and time becomes obsolete even though the Void remains, unchanged and still. Time-less. The definition of time as a dimension is a philosophical abstract - a bit like the theoretical sciences that underpin it.

Things are defined by their opposites.

In the mystical field, we very often come across the idea that this life is an illusion. The natural corollary would be that there is indeed an absolute reality of some kind.

However, given that it simply is, and cannot be approached, described, or defined, talking about it is an exercise in futility. Illusion or no. No positive affirmation or description is valid.

The only way to reach the timeless, is through the disappearance/cessation of the seeker. Or rather, one must find one's most childlike self, as Christ said.

Language is simply useless in this area.

it sounds so passionless, I think i would rather

be screaming apeshit about finite illusion than boring about the absolute.

Illusion or abstraction??

You see a disc where there is no disk.

Who made the disc?

The map is not the territory

The map–territory relation describes the relationship between an object and a representation of that object, as in the relation between a geographical territory and a map of it. Polish-American scientist and philosopher Alfred Korzybski remarked that "the map is not the territory", encapsulating his view that an abstraction derived from something, or a reaction to it, is not the thing itself. Korzybski held that many people do confuse maps with territories, that is, confuse models of reality with reality itself.

Matter within time is a changing thing Space is the thing that allows change to occur to matter within time. were it not for the cleaving power of space all matter would have tended to entropy and aged. Time is a linear law that humans theorize is flexible, but still are enslaved to by its linear power. the Present, the compression of the total self into the here and now is a way to firstly avoid the linear laws of time, secondly to access Space, when time is stopped space intersects it where once it would have run alongside.
