And let’s be clear about it, between the material body and its death there is only some "time". Hence the saying: "right from birth you’re dying". In addition, we have no control over time, but we are completely subject to it in the material world. Time is the mysterious but very powerful ruler in the material world. God says in Bhagavad Gita 11.32 that He is time; "kalo 'smi", "Time am I". Time is fundamentally eternal and also the impersonal aspect of the Absolute Truth. Within eternal time, seasonal time and atomic time exist. We use the latter more or less constantly in our highly organized societies. Once we understand the scientific reality of the Absolute Truth we’re no longer under the control of time.
