TIME and St. Augustine.
An "illusion" certainly. I think HPB says this is S D I p.
"Duration" is eternal, but 'time' is limited by its own
St. A. also tied himself into knots over the question of
"duality", but seems to have forgotten that it takes a third
position for "opposites" to be seen and reconciled -- the 3rd
position, being one of non-involvement. Theosophically, in
'man' - the position of the HIGHER SELF.
That is it as I understand it.
