It's space and time, a couple of man-made distractions
A proclamation that time is nothing but a distraction from one’s happiness and life, and by theory, space is also included in that. You should be yourself and everything that surrounds you is separate from you. The idea of a God is so complex that we will never fully understand it, so we distract ourselves with Earthly things.
