The life force that G-d bestows upon all creation transcends time and space and invests all creation with holiness.

By the laws of shemittah (7 year sabbatical cycle) and Yovel (49 year Jubilee cycle), Torah commands Israel to take possession of both time and space in order to reveal and make visible the holiness in G-d's creation.
