ES2 Vector timeline advice

I'm right near the end of the excellent ES2 video by Steve H and have learnt everything on there, though not sure about one or two things. Here's the first one.
With the vector time line,
Could somebody explain this, I get it (I think) when Steve says that 'each time segment determines the length it takes to get to the next time segment setting not to the next point'.
So if I set point 1 to a sine wave, point 2 to a square wave, and set the time in between to 2000ms. It takes 2000 ms to get to the next time segment (which is the one after point 2), not to point 2 itself, so does then mean it takes 1000ms to get to point 2 as its 'the apex of a bridge'.
It doesn't mean it takes 2000ms to go from point 1 to point 2
If anybody could explain this time line in more words, I'd really appreciate that, as its so easy to visualize it going from point to point. I found the manual a bit sparse on it (295).
Many thanks
