Your problem is one that had been troubling science for a long time. If I understand your question correctly, you want to know whether time is continuous or discrete.....Is there a certain level beyond which it is not possible to "break" time into smaller parts. The answer is no....Time is continuous on the real line, so that if I take 1 ms interval of time, i will know that there does exist a 1/2 ms interval of time. I don't know how much you have worked with Calculus, but if you have a fair backing, you should be able to realise what I am saying easily.
