when a room is dark the objects may be there or may not be there. It is an indeterminate problem or anirvachanIyam.  Non-existence of objects is also covered by the darkness.  To establish the existence of an object -light has to illuminate it, senses have to be functional, the mind should be functioning too. Existence of an object is established only the knowledge of its existence.

Can you give a Shruti reference where time is created by Iswara?

Hari Om!
