You are right ... but once Elwe takes Melian's hand, something extraordinary happens: Time stands still for them, for decades. If Time is standing still for them, is this the same as experiencing "no time?" Perhaps this happened only to them, since the sapling trees grew to adulthood, the stars still rotated in the sky, seasons still passed, and, like you say, these things require Time to happen. Maybe this occurred because Elwe is a High Elf and one of first to awaken and Melian is a Maia? Perhaps the passage of Time is different for Elves because of their immortality? It is interesting that in the Time of the Two Trees and without the Sun and Moon.as Timekeepers, Time probably would have been different, and, indeed, the days were only twelve hours long.
Time/No Time on Middle Earth.
Each Valian Year was 9,582 solar years long? Are you messing with me? If you are not, how many of these Valian Years were there? So Galadriel would have lived for tens of thousands of years before coming to Middle Earth? Time must have been different for the Valor during these Valian years.
