Time can be a practical division of experience. Out of it we create notions which can be applied to manifold purposes. Those notions which pertain to the truth are not appropriately identified as being mutually exclusive with regard to the actualities they represent. Appropriateness being a measure of helpfulness with regard to the overcoming of suffering. Truth being that which must be known in order that suffering is overcome. In other words its not very helpful to look for what is not present.

"Beautifully taught is the Lord's Dhamma, immediately apparent, timeless, of the nature of a personal invitation, progressive, to be attained by the wise, each for himself." Anguttara Nikaya V.332
