4 Value-adds:

hindu myth thinks of time as being periodic {the notion of pralaya etc sort of resetting the system clock every once in a while to zero} .. funnily enough computing systems think of it in the same way {integer wrap around :-)}

conventional science thinks that time is monotone {units since the big bang if you wish}

for us grad students time doesnt exist -- life is self-similar.

which category does timelessness fall into?

Well, does time exist in time domain? No. Hence timeless.

time doesnt need to exist in the time domain to be measurable by it. relativity makes many quantities measurable by many others. so if time were to exist at all and if it exists in some domain at all, then Time can be measured by time and hence is not timeless.
or if measuring is not the big deal, Time has to contain time(or what does Time include and what else includes time in itself) and hence Time is not timeless.
(evenings in grad school are really long and boring!)

dei. Using the word 'time' in multiple connotations in the same sentence does not mean your sentence makes sense. :)

Before you explain, what is Time? And what is time?
