Liber LXV, Cap. III, v. 10-12
10. I gazed upon the Crystal of the Future, and I saw the horror of the End of thee.
11. Further, I destroyed the time Past, and the time to Come — had I not the Power of the Sand-glass?
12. But in the very hour I beheld corruption.
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."

The way time is referred to here leads me to believe the observation is from a point of view outside of time. Just that principal in itself is important and powerful in many situations mundane or mystic. In seeing the "...End of thee." and destroying the Past and "...time to Come" he views himself having the Power of the Sand-Glass. Taking the macro view - outside of time the corruption is beheld. The corruption of the taint and delights from previous verses. The impermanent state of our "lower" desires.

Fruitless, not creative, relationship? - not fostering conditions for Initiation?
Even from the timeless perspective (of Biynah), in remaining in this relation (continuing to abide in this specific experience), there's recognized corruption. It's separated-ness, partial/limited experience of Love.
