Alright, then why does sending a d-mail to Daru about Kurisu getting stabbed causes a time machine to crash into the radio building???? Did Daru get Suzuha into some terrorist getup?
in the anime, there are many big worlds line, and those big worlds line contain many small world line and all of those small world line will lead to the same result of that big world line. and to travel from a big world line to another, Okarin must send a d-mail that change the future of the whole world. when Okarin send the d-mail to daru, which send okarin from the beta world line to the alpha one where SERN caught the D-mail and realized that it were send from the future, then later kidnap the lab member, learn how to time and rule the world. the mail itself didn't cause the time machine to crash into the radio building but it was an event that bound to happen in the alpha world line. the reason why "Rukako turned himself into a girl by telling his mum to eat veggies, Okarin telling himself to follow Suzuha instead of letting her go" didn't make okarin transfer from one big world line to another because the change is too small, not big enough to change the future of the whole world while the d-mail that okarin send to daru did.

yes

But wouldn't the past self sending a D-mail to the past Daru have no meaning? Since Makise is not 'dead' there would be no effect which means there is no change in worldlines, which therefore the past Okarin wouldnt have to go through those 3 weeks?
the reason why okarin must fake kurisu death in the first place was to make his past self to send the d-mail to daru and create the alpha world line thus make his past self travel there, the creation of the alpha world line was bound to happen in the beta.
