Is there any indication in Daniel about what "end" these visions and prophecies are referring to? What are you assuming the words 'time of the end' refer to and mean? Do you substitute the words 'end of time' for the words 'time of the end'?

Why or why not?
Is this the same 'time of the end' that is referred to as 'latter days' in Deut 31:29 and as 'end' and 'latter end' in 32:20, 29?
Dan 10:14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days
: for yet the vision [is] for [many] days.
Why, or why not?
If Daniel has been given [all] these prophecies during the curse of the law which was the Babylonian captivity that was prophesied in the law of Moses AND which Daniel confessed to have come upon them in his prayer in chapter 9; and in the law of Mose there was still a future time of 'latter days', 'end', and 'latter end' to come [from Daniels perspective]; then on what grounds and by what reasoning do you presume that the prophecies even including those of the 'time of the end' are not informing Daniel and his people of further details of this time of the previously prophesied 'end' and 'latter end' of the mosaic covenant?
How could it be that the visions would skip over providing further information and details about these latter days and latter end' to Daniels people of the mosaic covenant; and project to the 'end of time'?
And what 'end of time' could this be referring to if the spiritual seed and children of God through faith in Christ [John 1:12,13] like individual Jacob/Israel is promised to continue as long as the ordinances of the sun, moon and stars continue and generation after generation?
Upon whom did the 'ends of the earth' [the end and foundational purposes] come upon?
Deut 31:29 For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt [yourselves], and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days;
because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands.
Deut 32:20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end
[shall be]: for they [are] a very froward generation, children in whom [is] no faith.
Deut 32:29 O that they were wise, [that] they understood this, [that] they would consider their latter end!
Whatever specific fulfillment's are to be found in chapter 11 and 12 of Daniel, it would seem in-congruent with the other chapters of Daniel to seek to understand them other than between the time of the return from Babylon and the time of the 'latter end' of the mosaic covenant during the roman empire. Weather the 'time of the end' refers to the last generation as does Deut 32; or if it refers to the time period of the last kingdom or the last end of a previous [greek] kingdom [if indicated from its exact context] the Words 'Time of the end' cannot be twisted or changed to indicated 'the end of time' other than the 'end of the time allotted for the blessing and administration of the mosaic covenant.
This is confirmed by Jesus telling his hearers in His conversational instruction with them that they would see the abomination of desolation mentioned by Daniel and it would be a sign to those believers in Judea to flee into the mountains: And THEY DID.

If you are oppressed and enslaved by religious law, you may have a tendency to oppress, enslave and attempt to lord over others who are free.
