Your very close I havent replied to the other threads you mentioned because they just didnt contain any logic. Time is an arbitrary idea that is needed to solve equations. Thats it. What most people consider time, is actually speed of motion. The closest easily understandible definition of time is change.

i've seen some posts on the shape of time lately, and i just wanted to tell you guys that you're wrong. Some say the shape of time is a circle, which is completely ignorant.

Rude, but I would like to know how you can call others stupid because they presented a theory? whether it was fact-based or not, a person who has the ability to come to a thoughtful conclusion cannot be stupid. A lot of great inventions and ideas come from one thought/idea/formulation. A lot of times these ideas are presented without any evidence to back them up. And thus begins a chain. Whereas other people reflect upon it, develop it, then present it as fact. Of course this is just my opinion.
Secondly, I agree with you in regards to time being a dimension. One of the theories that I have heard is that time stands still and only events and circumstances change within it.
As for it having a beginning and end, i would think it was more a end for us. meaning that our time in this dimension would end. And a beginning for others, meaning that those in a dimension below us would take our place. If this makes sense. Again, just one thought or theory.
