Time is needed for change. Time changes. Therefore there are at least two times.

I agree in part with your assertion that there are at least 3 times. 3 things - yes, but only one of them is time.

I would put it that there is exactly one time: it is now. Before is memories. Future is expectations.

No, past, now, and future are parts of one time.

That is the correct interpretation. Thanks!
