at the mercy of natural timelines

In the article of BBC: Wabi-sabi offers a refuge from the modern world's obsession with perfection, and accept imperfections
as all the mor meaningful - and , in their own way, beautiful, there are sentences as follows.

Combined, these experiences allow the viewer to see themselves as part of natural world, no longer separated by societal constructs
and instead at the mercy of natural timelines. Rather than seeing dents or uneven shapes as mistakes, they are viewed as a creation
of nature - much as moss would grow on an uneven wall or a tree would curve in the wind.

Question) Would you rephrase the bold part especially focussing on natural timelines?

Thank you.
