Che cosa significa Ok. And why do you think this is what you've been doing instead of time travel? ?

This is a story from a web novel. For me, this is complicated and the meaning is hard to understand. I understand the context before and after, but I can't read what she is asking in this line.
This line seems to be asking why he thinks he has moved into the parallel universe. However, it doesn't seem to match the answer after that. The answer seems to explain what kind of properties parallel universe has.

Please tell me in your own words what she is asking at this line.


Excerpts from the preceding and following conversations:
Helsman: Wait wait. You're saying I die in two years?

Gupta: Well, that's assuming I'm from the future. Because there's another option: I'm from a parallel universe. And I didn't travel in time at all.

Helsman: Well, I mean if you're from a parallel universe then wouldn't that mean you've still travelled back in time?

Gupta: No no. In this scenario I actually can't travel backwards in time. It'd be impossible. It'd just be an illusion since each of the universes are temporally offset.

Helsman: I— I don't follow.

Gupta: No it's like… Like time zones. Here it's three but in California it's noon. Here it's April 4th but in another parallel universe it's March 6th. You can't travel backwards in time, but you can travel to a parallel universe that started a month later than this one, and that's almost the same thing.

Helsman: Ok. And why do you think this is what you've been doing instead of time travel?

Gupta: Well, um… not all parallel universes are created equal. In fact a lot of them are probably unstable. So at certain points in time, arbitrary groups of particles will just, like they'll lose stability. Err, but not entirely. Like they go black, and they crumble and it's… it's like the very fabric of reality just wilts away.

Helsman: You know you sound crazy right?
