hi , because he is trying to be a smart arse about it , asking , "does anyone understand what they see here", i dont even know if it makes sense and thought he maybe had a bit too much to smoke and done a wee doodle on a bit of paper and is trying to act all super intelligent.

Well, it undoubtedly makes sense to HIM, but it certainly is not any kind of standard world line diagram, although I suspect that's what he thinks he's drawing.

It looks like it involves some Block Universe kinds of features, but there are some other aspects of the figure that I'm not familiar with. If you are interested in Block Universe (or Block Time), look it up on Google.

Protip:
1.Draw a tetrahedron.
2.Name some(but not all!) sides as past/present/future as you see fit.
3.Look up some esoteric words re: the general relativity, string theory, or quantum physcis on wikipedia.
4.Copy some wiggles, lines and Important Words from the original picture, while adding those found on the wiki - with an obligatory exclamation mark.
6.Sign it: "Here's how it really works" and make some smug remarks re the other guy's poor understanding of science.
7.Refuse to explain anything until he explains his drawing.
8.Enjoy your sleep of the just.

Look to me like he found an overly complicated way to draw a time line. That's all it is, it just has a bunch of extra drawing and mumbo-jumbo that he thinks makes him look smart but actually makes it look ridiculous.
