Ah, then we had our definitions flipped. Duration is the ground, and measuring parts of it is considered time.

The question is whether there such a thing as duration, or whether the apparent condition we call duration is merely a byproduct of viewing with the core consideration that the particles are persisting. This is a very Newtonian sort of assumption, but wildly popular in the "reality is real" crowd.
