The question was asked. Is it correct that the passage of time is an illusion and that it (time) is created by consciousness? It is good asking this question. It is best not to use words which lead self away from itself. As such self should replace the word consciousness with self. As to the word illusion; it should ideally be written with a capitalized I but since the word is no longer properly understood it may as well be phased out. That being said. The purpose of self is companionship otherwise known as love hence why time is relative. Time is self desiring companionship. There is as such no mystery really. It is essentially all about companionship, friendship, love. Hence the gospel of love.
