Let's examine the possibility and substance of time travel. I listed a few examples of supposed time travelers. I'm interested in your assessment of the phenomena.
Time travel is supposedly the stuff of science fiction and fantasy, but if the account of two women in the first years of the 20th century is to be believed, then time travel is not only possible, but it can happen spontaneously and without warning.
The year was 1901, and a pair of friends, 55-year-old Anne Moberly and 38-year-old Eleanor Jourdain, were on holiday in France. They were both teachers at St. Hugh's College in Oxford. Moberly was in fact the principal there, and Jourdain would become her successor fourteen years later. The two set out to see the vast Palace of Versailles, the center of political power in France until the French Revolution in 1789. They turned to visit the Petit Trianon, a small chateau on the grounds given by Louis XVI to his 19-year-old wife, Marie Antoinette, as a private retreat for her personal use.
The women suddenly found themselves in the time of the French Revolution, where they reported seeing and interacting with people who they believed to be in the court of Marie Antoinette. The two women posthumously published an account of their tale. - More at The Versailles Time-Slip: Ghosts of Petit Trianon
The Montauk Air Force Station is rumored to house a massive, subterranean laboratory where top-secret government experiments in time travel are being conducted. Rumors began in the early 1980s when two men, Preston Nichols and Al Bielek, said that they had begun to recover suppressed memories of working in the lab. Many believe that the laboratory managed to create a "time tunnel," which allowed scientists to travel back to 1943. - More at The Montauk Project: Mind Manipulation, Alien Beings and Time Travel
He goes by the name VonHelton, this enigmatic figure suggests he might be part vampire, but asserts he is 100% time traveler. He has provided proof of his time travel prowess by lining up side-by-side photographs of himself starting in a studio in 1857 England, with stops in 1916 France, 1945 Berlin, and ending in the modern day. Is he, in fact, a time traveler? Or is his "vampire gene" keeping him immortal? Honestly...I think it's nothing more than a fraud. More at Who is Von Helton?
John Titor -- The M6 Event -- The Rayban Man -- The SRI Time Traveler
Although there is debate over the exact date it started, on November 02, 2000, a person calling themselves Timetravel_0, and later John Titor, started posting on a public forum that he was a time traveler from the year 2036.
One of the first things he did was post pictures of his time machine and its operations manual. As the weeks went by, more and more people began questioning him about why he was here, the physics of time travel and his thoughts about our time. He also posted on other forums including the former Art Bell site. In his posts John Titor entertained, angered, frightened and even belittled those who engaged him in conversation.
Titor described the time machine on several occasions. In an early post, he described it as a "stationary mass, temporal displacement unit powered by two top-spin, dual positive singularities", producing a "standard off-set Tipler sinusoid". The earliest post was more explicit, saying it contained:
* Two magnetic housing units for the dual micro singularities
* An electron injection manifold to alter mass and gravity micro singularities
* A cooling and X-ray venting system
* Gravity sensors, or a variable gravity lock
* Four main cesium clocks
* Three main computer units
According to the posts, the device was installed in the rear of a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette convertible and later moved to a 1987 truck having four-wheel drive.
In the five years since his absence John Titor has spawned a book, a theatre performance and rumours of a movie, as well as plenty of webpages attempting to prove or disprove his claims to be a time-traveller visiting us from the near future.
On March 21, 2001, John Titor told us he would be leaving and returning to 2036. After that, he was never heard from again. Speculation and investigation about who John Titor was and why he was online continues to this day.
The following narrative was copied from the MUFON CMS in December 2009. Is this an example of the John Titor effect?
MUFON witness report (unedited): Saskatchewan, Canada - What I am about to describe is the truth. The precursor to the UFO event began in June 2007 at 9:23 PM. I was living in the city with my mom and was on the computer. A message popped up from my instant messenger with the words, "Agent...[censored]" and "BlackOperations", stating that someone would like to add me. I stared at it for a minute and felt amazed. Thinking to myself, "Could it be someone 'in the know' who would like to talk to me? What is 'black operations'?". I eagerly accepted the add request and opened a conversation window. The avatar displayed an emblem of, "U.S. Department of Defense" with a black background. I said, "Hello, Agent...[censored]?" the mysterious person replied and a conversation began. The "agent" told me about how I'm "key" to an "event" in the "future" along with a few "others". Than the agent elaborated a bit about a person from the year 2036 by the name of, "[censored]" (not "John Titor") and that this person was part of a special operations unit with "C204" equipment the team uses. The agent first advised me to walk away from this time traveler because, I'd understand when the time comes. Later the agent asked if I met the traveler. I have not to this day. Being so confused and amazed at the same time, I wanted to ask a lot of questions and was told that is all the agent was able to say. So I knew a little about the Titor story and seeked others for information. A few days later after divulging what had happened, to "Titor" experts, the agent contacted me and said I couldn't be trusted. There was another. I felt I had lost an opportunity to be part of a "top secret" time travel agenda because, after running a quick search on the agents name, there appeared to be a real world person. But was I being deceived or cleverly entangled with fact and fiction?
Here is a link to the interview with John Titor and some of the predictions. Many people have simply regarded the John Titor story as a hoax...it could very well be. But on a personal note, I have many questions concerning the possibility of time travel...especially after an 'encounter' the Spirit Rescue International team had during an investigation in Llanelli, Wales in December 2010.
|Who was this person?|
Irene and Lorna were in the small bathroom of the residence and taking digital photographs. Irene took a shot at the large mirror...in the image there was a young man dressed in a unusual brown outfit with some type of device in his hand. He was passing between Irene and Lorna heading in the direction of the bathtub.
The person fit description of anyone on the team or in the residence. In fact, the space between Irene and Lorna was so tight that is hard to imagine anybody getting through there...especially undetected.
We went back and looked through all the images in order to rule out a possible super imposed image but everything checked out as normal. It's just another strange mystery that we may never be able to explain. More at Still Searching For Answers: Was It a Time Traveler?
|Is the guy in the sunglasses a time traveller?|
At first glance, this photo appears to be nothing out of the ordinary...that is, until you spot the Rayban-wearing dude in the midst of a formal hat and tie crew from the 1940s. Not only do the gentleman's modern sunglasses make him suspicious, but observers have noted that he is wearing a screen-print t-shirt and holding a modern camera.
Then there is the strange M6 accident in Birmingham, UK and another similar event in Paris, France. Here are the links from these incidents:
