I believe in block time, so there is no start or end. I think there is a
collection of states and stable patterns that exist and perceive, within
even larger stable patterns.

Is it wrong to say something to the effect of all solutions to the
Shrodinger equation are satisfied?

Wheeler-Dewitt showed what Einstein and Feynman with his diagrams
suspected, and what I think many thought experiments can help show, that
time, as something that changes what exists, does not exist.
