Worldline Convergence refers to a phenomenon that causes multiple worldlines within the same Attractor Field to converge to the same result.

Description[]

As long as a worldline is within a certain Attractor Field, it will always converge to the same result as other worldlines within the same Attractor Field. This phenomenon is referred to as worldline convergence, where a group of worldlines all converge on a single event. The exact circumstances of the event in question do not matter, but as long as the event takes place, the worldline will converge. Additionally, due to Convergence, it is impossible to prevent the event from occurring unless history is altered enough to prompt an Attractor Field change.

For example, Mayuri Shiina's death occurs in all of the worldlines in the Alpha Attractor Field due to all of them converging on the same "result". It does not matter whether Mayuri is murdered, dies in an accident, or perishes of natural causes, but the worldlines will continue to converge on her death unless the worldline changes to a worldline within an Attractor Field where Mayuri doesn't die, such as the Beta Attractor Field.

It is impossible to escape Worldline Convergence without entering another Attractor Field by changing history, which can only be accomplished through time travel.

The Steins Gate worldline is a worldline that lies between the Alpha and Beta Attractor Fields, and is unaffected by either. As a result, the future of this worldline is unknown, but different from the futures of worldlines in the Alpha and Beta Attractor Fields.
