Time is a vague concept that attempts to convey multiple meanings depending on how it is used.
It can be used to express the duration of events and also the start and stop of events.
An event is change from one state to another state. Describing changing as it is occurring takes a verb.
By vague, I mean people are mystified by time because it is multifunctional. Some attempt to consider it irrelevant but I find it’s crucial for experience, even the feeling of timelessness one can get in a mystical experience is time dependent.
I think time only matters for objects that can experience changings happening.
