Well Tink, Carl Jung has an interesting way to address your question; in his autobiography MEMORIES, DREAMS AND REFLECTIONS, he talks about going over a hill in Africa and beholding a timeless herd of reebok (or something), thereby creating time, in other words we humans create time!
Then there is the verse by Rumi:
"Come out of the circle of time
...and into the circle of love."
Yes I have loved your question, I also have been fascinated by time...!
