Yea, I'm not talking about Mario defeating Dimentio and saving the timeline. I'm talking about Mario when he accepted Merlon's request about saving all dimensions, when he accepted Queen Jaydes request, and refused Dimentio's request. If all timelines are different dimensions, then that means that in all the timelines in Super Paper Mario were the same. Ok, let me explain it this way. If in a separate timeline Mario refused Merlon's request and all dimensions would be destroyed then that would mean the events of Super Paper Mario would be erased from existence. The events of Super Paper Mario is where Mario, Peach, and Bowser stopped the Dark Prognosticus. So technically, all the timelines were exact, if the timelines were different then all dimensions/timelines wouldn't exist. Get what I'm saying?

I don't think the SPM world is operating on alternate timelines.
Seem more like Doctor Who in that the timeline can be bend into new events (which mean doing stuff in the past can alter future events) with some special events being predestined and unchangeable (or rather trying to change those events could lead to paradoxes)
Basically what the Light Prognosticus is implying (The Void's appearance was predestined and couldn't be prevented but the fated destruction of all world wasn't and could be prevented with the proper artifacts and heroes)
