|Canto 11: General History||Chapter 22: Enumeration of the Elements of Material Creation|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.22.43
nityadā hy ańga bhūtāni
bhavanti na bhavanti ca
sūkṣmatvāt tan na dṛśyate
nityadā — constantly; hi — indeed; ańga — My dear Uddhava; bhūtāni — created bodies; bhavanti — come into being; na bhavanti — go out of being; ca — and; kālena — by time; alakṣya — imperceptible; vegena — whose speed; sūkṣmatvāt — because of being very subtle; tat — that; na dṛśyate — is not seen.
My dear Uddhava, material bodies are constantly undergoing creation and destruction by the force of time, whose swiftness is imperceptible. But because of the subtle nature of time, no one sees this.
