Simplistically time is a dimension and we measure passage through that dimension. Cataloguing is to time as tape measures are to space; they observe rather than create.

time is just an illusion created by our brains. it doesnt really exist
it should not matter if "time" has an end begining or present, bcuz if it does by chance have an end, would we even know that it has ended? wouldnt our minds still percieve the "present" as still going on into the future? how do we know that "time" has not ended already?

I have no idea what you mean by if time ends or even if that statement makes sense but perception is a process that occurs through time. Therefore it is impossible for us to perceive without time and thus because we are perceiving we know that time exists and continues to exist.
