@Robert Gentel,
Interesting.

The extinct lines don't seem to be represented. The graph appears very dense (many lines) near the outer edge (recent time). But it's important to remember that there was probably similar density at most other times as well, we just don't know about those because we haven't identified all the vanished lines.
