This Is Why Timelines Change
In the Wachowskis' (the directors of Matrix and V for Vendetta) Jupiter Ascending, a movie character explains to the protagonist how the most precious resource in the universe is time. Indeed, how endless it feels when experiencing tiresome situations and how it flies when enjoying chosen activities. That alone should be sufficient proof of how the concept of time itself is not only subjective but quite relative. Time is not linear because there are infinite numbers of intertwining timelines good old Dr Who loved surfing so much in his TARDIS (Time and Relative Dimension in Space) spacecraft resembling a British police telephone box. The following article chiefly provides food for thoughts and a reminder, even though, in some respects (you'll have to figure out for yourself), it may be difficult to grasp insomuch as it takes purely theoretical statements for recognised facts I will neither validate nor invalidate — still having both an open mind and reservations about the issue.
What are timelines and why do some predicted events come and go without the anticipated event ever happening?
What is a Timeline?
A timeline is a chronological point within time and space that is relevant to this planet. For example, a list of inventions in chronological order since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution could be shown on a timeline.
Time is linear and is only relevant to this planet. A day on Earth is calculated by the amount of time it takes for our planet to fully rotate on its axis. A day on Mars is similar, but different because it takes Mars approximately 28 hours to revolve on its axis as it revolves around the sun, proving that time (as we know it) is only relevant to this planet. When we cross over to the other side, time, as we know it, no longer exists.
