We've created a measurement of time using clocks and watches and sun dials, all human tools
I disagree. My cat can catch a toy I kick in the air. For my cat to do it, it must have sense of timing which leads to anticipation of best catch trajectory spot. That carbon based life form, that leaves tons of hair on the carpet, has built in 'watch-timer'!
Right, which supports what I'm saying that you can not occupy a certain space (physical dimensions) without a specific time (temporal dimension) location.
Yes time is a duration, but this, like length, width, height, is a measurement.
Time is also a coordinate in space.
Without matter time flux is still there but has no tangible meaning. Or does it?

Yes time exist. The expansion of the universe is what created time. That, the fact that we can even perceive time is because our planet orbits a star.
As the last, in cosmology our universe is described as 3D + Time. It is for a reason. Otherwise it would be called just 4D universe (time included).
What can you sense? What is perceived is sensed - with the senses. Can you smell the past or hear the future?
A smell can bring on a flood of memories, influence people's moods and even affect their work performance. Because the olfactory bulb is part of the brain's limbic system, an area so closely associated with memory and feeling it's sometimes called the "emotional brain," smell can call up memories and powerful responses almost instantaneously. The olfactory bulb has intimate access to the amygdala, which processes emotion, and the hippocampus, which is responsible for associative learning. Despite the tight wiring, however, smells would not trigger memories if it weren't for conditioned responses. When you first smell a new scent, you link it to an event, a person, a thing or even a moment. Your brain forges a link between the smell and a memory -- associating the smell of chlorine with summers at the pool or lilies with a funeral. When you encounter the smell again, the link is already there, ready to elicit a memory or a mood.

The funny thing is that the Buddha was supposedly a rich prince who gave it all away to find the answer to suffering.
If people lived in the now constantly which is prevalent if one looks at the level of savings to debt, people would be always suffering in debt.
Put another way, saving today (in the now) for tomorrow relieves the suffering of tomorrow
The seer and seen happen at the same time.
Scientists have revealed the human brain has a 15-second lag that helps stabilize incoming visual information, which we don’t notice bombarding us in the course of our everyday lives.
Eyes tend to receive an enormous information load from dusk till dawn, and as one opens his or her eyes in the morning, the brain starts its intensive work, processing incoming pictures from the surroundings, including imagery from TV screens and computer monitors. A team of vision scientists at the University of California, Berkeley and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) revealed this secret of the human brain: To save us from insanity induced by a constantly changing torrent of pictures, shapes and colors – both virtual and real world – the brain filters out information, failing in most cases to notice small changes in a 15-second period of time.
I don't think it is right. I can view the cube from six independent sides. I can color each side and six times see different color.
It takes 3 coordinates to make a cube. X,y, and z
A cube has 8 corners. Each side would be a 2 dimension structure
