This means that neither past nor future exist, they are just human`s creations...
That's the question if time exist in our world with independence from us, as observers. First of all you said yes. I'm not so sure, I have my doubts (every good scientist is always an skeptic [...])

If we didn’t use time as a measurement between two events then what would we use? Perhaps the ball idea as Mr Duck suggests. Time exists only in our limited memory. It is nothing but a contagious thought.
As for believing, you can live for eternity. If you do not know what eternity is, you can.
However, the very idea of knowing when we will expire when we reach a certain age may speed up the process because you have a set number of years lodged in your mind.
Other creatures do not have this problem.
I understand that time is a measurement that has allowed us to achieve many things. The thing is, has this measurement label allowed everything else we share the planet with to under achieve?
How can we be sure that there is no higher self-awareness in all living creatures for in order to eat and mate you have to be aware of something?
I know that is a bit basic but can you see what I am getting at.
