Time is for consciousness a succession of moments. It is at the end of the interval between the first two that we become aware of its passage and can call the measurement one second. If thinking stops but consciousness remains and we manage to stay with it without introducing the ego--which restarts the process, the movement--we are caught and held in the gap. This is pure consciousness.
