I pulled one of the lower sections of the blender to the top, and now I am completely unable to do anything. I tried pulling the top down, but it's not the window I am looking for.

here is a picture of what it looks like.

Click and drag the handle in the upper right hand corner of the timeline down to split the view, then set the new timeline to a 3D view by clicking on the editor selection menu in the left side of the header:

incredibly helpful, now i never have to ask this question again – LordofLizards Aug 11 '14 at 21:13

I think what you may have done is hit the one of the key combinations CTRL-UP arrow, or CTRL-DOWN arrow, (on a full size keyboard located between the alphanumeric keys and the numeric keypad) while the cursor was over the timeline window. The fix is to press one of these two key combinations again, as they are a toggle.
