Note to Anon Lil 6VII

[7-8] heim og … tíma tvá jafnaldra ‘world and ... time, two [entities] of the same age’: This reflects the philosophical notion that time is the measure of change. Before anything was created, there was not change, and hence no time. God, who does not participate in change, is outside of time.
