In poetry:
Forgiven be the State he loved
The one brief lapse, the single blot;
Forgotten be the stain removed,
Her righted record shows it not!
"Sumner" by John Greenleaf Whittier

Who should be above him;
Perhaps he'll think me light; perhaps--
Perhaps he'll think I--love him!

Came to him, as he lapsed away
As one whose troubled dreams of night
Slide slowly into tranquil day.

Which have gathered all their greatness

The clouds grew rich with sunset gleams;
Then o'er the sky a rainbow sprang-
A bridge unto the Land of Dreams.

From Pennsylvania's vales of spring away,
Where, forest-walled, the scattered hamlets lay

The group transformations arise from spacetime diffeomorphisms which contain a compulsory dependence on the lapse and shift gauge functions.
Quantum general invariance and loop gravity
Pro jectable conﬁguration-velocity functions may not depend on time derivatives of the lapse and shift; equation (3.4) represents the most general inﬁnitesmal diffeomorphism producing variations which satisfy this requirement.
Quantum general invariance and loop gravity
The gauge functions are however almost arbitrary; the only condition on them is that the lapse must be strictly positive.
Quantum general invariance and loop gravity
Using the arbitrary gauge functions in the Ashtekar approach which are the lapse, shift, and the temporal component of the Ashtekar connection, we construct traces of holonomies around spacetime loops. I speculate that the resulting linearly independent states are four-dimensional spin networks.
Quantum general invariance and loop gravity
What is meant by this is the Einstein evolution equations written in 3+1 form in terms of the induced metric and second fundamental form of a foliation with a ﬁxed choice of lapse and shift.

Assuming the lapse function N = 1 at spatial inﬁnity, the resulting surface integral may be written as √γ γ ij γ k l (γik ,j − γij,k )dSl , 16πEADM = I∞ where EADM is known as the ADM mass of the ﬁeld and γij is the three metric of the geometry.
Variational Principles in General Relativity
If we choose the lapse on the upper sheet to be normalized to nupper sheet ≡ 1, then we may interpret N to be a measure of the lapse on the lower sheets.
Variational Principles in General Relativity
Once this is done, we may write an expression for the lapse function.
Variational Principles in General Relativity
Because the geometry on the lower sheets is unchanging, the lapse function on the lower sheets is unchanging as well.
