“Time is of two kinds. The first, continuous and endless, destroys all animate and inanimate things (which is also the cause of creations and preservation), the second is that which can be known. This latter is also of two kinds. One is called measurable, and the other is immeasurable (immeasurable, because of being too large or small respectively).”

—Surya Siddhanta of Bapu Deva Shastri
