The movie The Endless had some very short time loops like the one in the tent and some long loops like Hal and the team.

So what is the explanation of their different duration of time loops?

Despite being in the same area why the loop duration was different for each group? On what basis the loop duration was decided?

    I haven't seen the movie, but judging from the description on Wikipedia these loops seem to be part of some kind of torture/punishment that is applied by others as their entertainment. Why would these loops always be the same length then? And why would there be a need to explain the uneven lengths? – BCdotWEB Oct 4 '19 at 11:07

The rules for the time duration of each loop is entirely arbitrary. The parameters for size and duration of creation of a loop are unknown to both the viewer and the characters within the movie. The only thing we know as the viewer is that there is a separate cosmic entity that creates and controls the loops. It's pretty heavily implied that each loop is created purely for the entity's enjoyment, but we never figure out the true extent of the entities abilities, powers, size, or even how many loops exist.
