how to make a line out of time?

Lets say i fancy making a stretch of seemingly continuous colour that evidently begins and end in 2 different places?
Something like:
_______________
What exactly has that process involved?
There are many “exacts”, each of which might be very interesting and relevant. However, here am trying to focus on time.
Could a line such as:
____________________
be made without time involved?
My mind gets stuck in the process of time that it takes to stretch the line from a given place in the screen’s space.
Indeed, the screen’s space is, in the time sense, a result of stretched lines made of various materials..
To make a line, in a sense, am I not hacking time’s movement to mark a continuous set of very close proximity dots? ________________________________________ ?
Once we get the _________________________ it suddenly emerges with its own time. It has its own rhythm and contingency to disappear in time – hence it own period. Say this was a line on a paper, then it might depend upon the rhythmic physicality of the paper, however, i think its emergent because its independent from the stroke that initiated it. In fact, it seems fair to claim that people – sentient beings – might attempt to compute the initiating stroke in direct link with the possibility of the line being an independent emergent property. Hence, I think, people consider the materials, contet, distribution, etc. that might be involved in a line after the time of initiating it hass gone to be focused on some other stuff. ie the line will have its own timee.
No?
In that sense, perhaps a line might be the visual interval between types of time? Or types of time rhythms? ie sentient-being and organic non-sentient? Different kinds of rhythm?

However, it might also be apt to argue that the other “exacts” am referring to at the top, might in themselves be another kind of Out of time, no? Say we consider lines such as ______________ as nothing to do with time but everything to do with a sense of sace, or sense of quantities, ie how far a is from b, etc..
