DCnU become the new Earth 1?

  One of the biggest things that people seem to notice from the initial justice league #1 is the fact that it seems everything is starting over. much of the fact that even 5 years previous to current time that no one really knows each other. From what was gathered in flashpoint #5 the timeline was splintered into 3 timelines, the previous continuity and the current. but still both are flowing at the same time. Scientists often explain that another reality exists beyond our own universe where other outcomes to other events in life have altered the state of living in that parallel universe. 
 
  Now this is not the first time in which the DC universe has done this. Back during the silver age of comics, specifically The Flash #123 back in 1961. DC Showed the flash vibrating at a different rate which transported him to an alternate earth where he met the golden age Jay Garrick or the ORIGINAL Flash. It was from here that it was established that the previous continuity specifically characters of the golden age and be able to explain all the changes that were made between the golden age and the silver age, this allowed updates to be done for characters such as superman who had in the golden age always worked by himself. later they would add superman to the roster of Justice League of America in 1963 for the silver age thus rebuilding the character again. and reinventing his life over again

  From what we can learn from this in the DCnU is that we could see a rebuilding of a new silver age of comics and at some point refer to the previous continuity as Earth 2 in terms of its existence, and how it might come up again in the future in the current continuity if the company does decide not to go the route of Marvel Reborn back in the late 90's.

Earth One and Earth 1 are different places. 
 
@Trodorne
The JLA comics takes place 5 years  before the current timeline. That's why no one knows each other.

@ReVamp:  While at the same time the characters are made younger and some of the characters back stories are being reinvented, much like back in the silver age.

What? Yes, what you said is true, I'm just not connecting it to what I said previously.

The three timelines the mystery lady was talking about were the three DC imprints (Wildstorm, Vertigo, and DC Comics) and they were brought together not splintered. In the new unified universe heroes haven't been around as long as they were on New Earth.

DCnU takes place on New Earth/Earth 0, more than likely.

Earth One and Earth 1 are different places. 
If DC wasn't already losing business, this'd clinch it.

New Earth is the place where pre-Revamp stories took place. 
The earth 0 part makes sense.
