Time is the Ideally Unique Subjective Phenomenon.

Time - The Merciless Heropass

The problem of Time, which is called the Merciless Heropass in Beelzebub's Tales, is the reason that The Endlessness Creator created our Universe.

"Thereupon our Endlessness became thoughtful, for in His Divine deliberations He became clearly aware that if this Heropass should so continue to diminish the volume of the Sun Absolute, then sooner or later, it would ultimately bring about the complete destruction of this sole place of His Being." (42)

“Time in itself does not exist; there is only the totality of the results ensuing from all the cosmic phenomena present in a given place.
“Time itself, no being can either understand by reason or sense by any outer or inner being-function. It cannot even be sensed by any gradation of instinct which arise and is present in every more or less independent cosmic concentration.
“It is possible to judge Time only if one compares real cosmic phenomena which proceeds in the same place and under the same conditions, where Time is being constated and considered.
“It is necessary to notice that in the Great Universe all phenomena in general without exception wherever they arise and manifest, are simply successively law-conformable ‘Fractions’ of some whole phenomenon which has its prime arising on the Most Holy Sun Absolute.’
“And in consequence, all cosmic phenomena, wherever they proceed, have a sense of objectivity.’
“And these successively law-conformable Fractions’ are actualized in every respect, and even in the sense of the involution and evolution, owing to the chief cosmic law, the sacred Heptaparaparshinokh.’
“Only Time alone has no sense of objectivity, because it is not the result of the fractioning of any definite cosmic phenomena. And it does not issue from anything but blends away with everything and becomes self-sufficiently independent; therefore, in the whole of the Universe, it alone can be called and extolled as the Ideally-Unique-Subjective-Phenomenon.’
“Thus, my boy, uniquely Time alone or, as it is sometimes called, the Heropass, has no source from which its arising should depend. But like Divine-Love flows always, as I have already told you, independently by itself, and blends proportionately with all the phenomena present in the given place and in the given arising of our Great Universe.
