Keep these thoughts in mind... it helps me cope with this...

I figure Earths 1, 2, 3, S, X, Prime, etc are all still out there in the Multiverse.  The Earths that we saw in COIE are all on yet another dimensional plane... the plane that yielded this travesty of a Earth that is being presented in DC Comics today.

Just as I feel that the Earth 1 of the '70's was a different Earth 1 that was presented in the '60's and the '80's.  The characters of those eras were different from each other, but similar enough to carry continuity.  Compare the Earth 1 Superman, Batman, Flash, etc of the 1970's and you find VERY different characters than were found in the '60's

Davidelliot, you're thinking about Hypertime, where alternate timelines are constantly spinning off DC's Mainstream Continuity.  One can imagine Earths-1,2,3,S and X surviving had the Anti-Monitor perished during the assault on his Fortress (with or without the death of Supergirl).  Earth-Prime and a couple others MIGHT also survive if the anti-matter wall dispersed with the Anti-Monitor's death.

One might also conceive alternate timelines where the Crisis NEVER occurred at all (such as the Imaginary Story in "Superman Family #200" where in the year 2000 Clark and Lois Kent are expecting a son, their daughter Laura is just developing superpowers, and Superwoman is also Governor Linda Danvers of Florida!), or where the Crisis was actually "DC Challenge!" (perhaps this happened to Earth-B, the home of "out-of-continuity" stories).  

As for your observation that "Earth-1" also differed between the decades, one might assume there were OTHER temporal Crises that mildly rebooted history but unlike the great Crisis of 1985 these were NOT remembered!  (Now we know how Superman and Batman never aged, and why Supergirl reverted to a 19-year-old college student!)   :wink:   Or perhaps the "reader focus" was unconsciously shifted from one "Earth-1" to another  Hypertime "Earth-1" that was set slightly later -- thus the explanation for the "floating timeline".
