Timelines can make use any time scale, depending on the subject and data. Most earthly timelines use a linear scale, where a unit of distance is equal to a set amount of time. This time scale is dependent on the events in the timeline. A timeline of evolution can be over millions of years, whereas a timeline about the September 11, 2001 can take place over minutes. While most timelines use a linear timescale, for very large or small timespans, logarithmic timelines use a logarithmic scale to depict time.
Nowadays, we can easily say that there is much confusion about the real concept of timelines and their time span. They are like most of the mental constructs used to organize our positioning in relation to an episode, being that a physical, emotional, or spiritual event.
When the new age movement speaks about the collapsing of the timelines, they are speaking virtually about the reunification of different internal realities perceived through the “eyes” or concepts of the Kairos’ time, or internal time. It is also inferred in the same broad concept of timelines the idea of a spiraling of the quantum energies of the planet creating an inverse vortex point that would effectively change the paradigm of the three dimensions of space and one of time to one of three dimensions of time and only one of space. This is the blast of the linear time in favor of a more integrated multidimensional concept of time, able to apprehend the level of expansion of the new human consciousness.
