Are These Images Proof of Real Time Travel?

Time Travel Proof in Pictures

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a problem.

Apparently, no one is willing to follow proper time travel etiquette. Time travelers are leaving proof of their escapades everywhere!

Well, the best I can do is keep track of these temporal anomalies. What follows are a series of images that many claim are evidence that time travel has already occurred, and that visitors from the future have mingled with cultures throughout history.

Join me as I explore these temporal tears in the fabric of the universe. The fate of the space-time continuum depends on it!

Evidence of time travel in Chinese tomb?

Time Traveler's Watch In Chinese Tomb?

Our first stop on this temporal disaster is China.

In December 2008, Chinese archaeologists allegedly removed the opening of a giant coffin within what was believed to be an undisturbed, 400-year old Si Qing tomb in Shangsi County.

As they removed the soil around the coffin, however, they were shocked and amazed to find this: A small piece of metal shaped like a watch, with the time frozen at 10:06. “Swiss” was engraved on the back.

A Swiss Watch?

If the tomb was truly undisturbed for 400 years, what could explain the existence of this modern artifact? Only one thing: an absent-minded time traveler!

Virtual Museum Photo: Time traveler caught on camera?

The Time Traveling Hipster

This photo turned up on the Virtual Museum of Canada website, an online repository of “Canada’s rich history and culture.” It’s said to be of the reopening of the South Fork Bridge in the early 1940s in Gold Bridge, B.C., Canada. The event certainly drew a crowd.

But in the photo, someone doesn’t belong.

Evidence of time travel in museum photo?

Who is this strange individual, seemingly out of place — modern attire and all — in what would otherwise be a perfectly ordinary gathering? Is he from the future? Fancy goggles, coat and branded t-shirt. I mean, this is what happens when you let hipsters play with your time machine.

They visit the opening of a bridge.

Woman on Cell Phone in 1928?

The above video contains a short clip taken from a special feature on the DVD version of Charlie Chaplin’s film, The Circus. In it, we see a relatively mundane shot from the film’s premiere at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in 1928.

Two individuals walk across the screen behind a zebra. But that’s not the strange part. Look closer. What’s that woman holding to her ear?

Time Traveler in Charlie Chaplin Movie?

A cell phone? A pan-dimensional communication device? That’s Time Travel 101, folks: no cell phones!

Woman on Cell Phone in 1938?

Oh, but we can’t stop there. In this excerpt we see footage of a crowd of people exiting a DuPont factory in Massachusettsas sometime in 1938. Click here to view the original uncut footage.

In the video, one woman is clearly seen holding another cell phone up to her ear.

Time Traveler Outside Factory in 1938?

Listen, time travelers: you can’t take futuristic devices into the past. Because someone will find it, film it, and post it on YouTube. Seriously, read the manual.

Andrew D. Basiago’s Trip To Gettysburg?

Andrew Basiago's Evidence of Time Travel

This singular image is courtesy Andrew D. Basiago, who allegedly took part in DARPA’s top secret government operation Project Pegasus back in the 1970s.

The photograph is said to have been taken during one of Basiago’s temporal trips, during which he found himself at Gettysburg on the very day of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, November 19, 1863. Basiago claims to be the young boy at center-left. Says Basiago,

“I am the boy standing in the foreground of the image at center-left, looking to his right. My shoes were lost in the transit through the quantum plenum that took me from the plasma confinement chamber at the time lab in East Hanover, NJ in 1972 to Gettysburg, PA on the day that Abraham Lincoln gave his famous address there in 1863.”

Of course, Basiago has other stories to tell. In fact, he claims President Barack Obama traveled to Mars in the 1980s.

Rudolph Fentz, A Victim of Time?

An example of 1876 attire (John HIllyard Cameron)

Am I supposed to believe that a man named Rudolph Fentz vanished in 1876, only to reappear 74 years later in New York City?

Maybe.

As the legend goes, Rudolph Fentz materialized on a busy New York street in 1950, only to be hit by a passing car, his mysterious temporal voyage ending in an instant. Police investigations then led one captain on a strange journey of his own — proof that time travel is possible, and sometimes fatal.

While the Rudoplh Fentz story appears in Jack Finney’s About Time: 12 Short Stories, it has often been repeated as legitimate evidence of time travel. Many claim, without hesitation, that the Fentz story is based on factual events, and Finney was simply relaying it years later, in fictional form.

John Titor, the Time Traveler From 2036?

Titor-Time-Machine-Schematic

John Titor captured the imaginations of forum-goers in a way no other alleged time travelers ever could, mostly by spilling the beans on how his time machine worked, sharing photos and schematics, and answering everybody’s questions. If you want to read more, I have a whole section devoted to his antics.

It’s entertaining stuff, and many consider the information he shared to be some of the most compelling time travel evidence out there. Even if it is ripping a hole in the fabric of space and time.

A Compact Disc Case in the 1800s?

Time Traveler's Box in the early 1800s?

Allegedly, this painting was created sometime in the 1800s, and appears to be of a man holding what looks like a fancy CD box. At least, that’s what they say.

The earliest form of plastic wasn’t invented until the mid-1800s, and (obviously) Compact Discs weren’t in use until the 1980s. Leaving us with a single conclusion: this box is no mere box, but rather the container for some kind of time-bending wormhole device.

HDR: The “Real” Time Machine?

HDR Time Machine

Designed by Steven Gibbs in 1985, the HDR, or Hyper Dimensional Resonator, is said to allow its user to astrally travel through space and time (via naturally-occurring interdimensional vortices). Some on the Internet claim to have successfully used the device to visit the future.

Allegedly, Gibbs was given the designs/inspiration for the HDR by two aliens and/or time travelers named… Paco and Pedro.

The above image clearly highlights the machine’s “rubbing plate,” “wishing well” (into which you place your crystals), and a handful of knobs and switches. For more on this peculiar invention, head on over to my post The “Real” Time Machine.

A Time Portal Under The Kitchen Sink?

In 2006, a Swedish man named Håkan Nordkvist thought it would be a good idea to climb under his sink and momentarily travel to the year 2042.

He even met his older self and took a video of their (his) matching tattoos, seen above. Check out Did This Man Find A Wormhole Under His Kitchen Sink? to read more, if you dare.

Wormhole Under the Kitchen Sink?

At any rate, here’s a quick warning for any potential kitchen-based time travelers out there: if you or someone you know find a wormhole under your sink, do not attempt to crawl into it.

The paperwork involved afterwards is ridiculous.

What did you say? The Håkan Nordkvist story was viral marketing for an insurance company? If that’s a veiled criticism of my time travel evidence, I won’t hear it and I won’t respond to it.

Time Traveling Celebrities?

Time Traveling Celebrities: Jay-Z in 1939

Next, here’s a photograph taken in Harlem back in 1939. Nothing out of the ordinary, no, except for rapper Jay-Z just kind of hanging out there. No big deal.

Jay-Z, Nicholas Cage, Keanu Reeves — all celebrities who have no problem riding the timelines without a care in the world. If you want to see more photos of their temporal journeys and reckless disregard for the arrow of time, check out my post Top 5 Celebrity Time Travelers.

Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

Okay, well. Perhaps the space-time continuum is safe, after all.

Is time travel possible? At the end of the day, it’s all just a bunch of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey…stuff. Best not to take it too seriously. But please, leave your thoughts in the comments below, particularly if you have any other proof of time travel to report.

Also be sure to check out photographer Flora Borsi’s faux time travel photo gallery. Luckily, her photos aren’t real and pose no threat to our worldline. They do look strangely familiar, though. Here she is with Marilyn Monroe:

     that photo of the guy with the sunglasses is real, and he is NOT a time traveller, he was pilot and the camera and glasses he was wearing were available at the time. 

    The woman wasnt holding a cell phone, but on movie sets even back then they had walkie talkie type devices.

    • Bigbuddak

      Proof of time travel will be disclosed very soon. Time travel as you perceive it is wrong. A person cannot go back and forth through time. Imagine jumping into a raging river, you are swept along the current to a distant shore. Now imagine jumping back in and trying to swim against the current to where you first jumped in, you wouldn’t be able to do it. Time travel is a one way trip, period. Various organizations in the far future have sent back people, observers if you will to study human achievements first hand. These observers are to note events, not change them. They are even forbidden to have contact one another. Their notes are hidden in preassigned areas for future pick up. Most aspects of daily life and certain events that are known of in the future are gleaned from these documents.
      The people who are selected to travel back have to meet several criteria before they are chosen. They cannot be married, have children or alot of close family. They must be ordinary looking so they can blend in easier and they must have studied ancient history and the texts of the time into which they’ll be inserted. Studies include daily life, customs such as religion and even the slang used in conversations. All applicants are then rigorously tested before consideration.
      Even though the screening process is very precise, mistakes are sometimes made such as a person being sent back with items that are not used in that time. Despite these mistakes the program has had overwhelmingly great success. The purpose of the program was not just to document historic events from first person accounts but more to study the daily life of past generations.

    • Mike L.

      That’s a strong claim.  I think some equally strong evidence is required.

    • Colin

      @Bigbuddak:
      Though I respect your opinion, I think you should reconsider: to say time travel can only occur in one direction is not an outrageous claim; to say time travel can only occur backwards is contradictory to that claim. Every single one of us is traveling forward in time at a constant rate. We are all time travelers we just have no control over it.

    • Ruffian

      I am going to have to agree with mike.

    • http://www.elvisinmybasement.com Kmuzu

      Have no idea about the Chinese tomb, but the rest have been debunked ..

    • http://tadpooltech.squarespace.com/ JonFromSeattle

      The woman wasn’t holding a cell-phone or even a “walkie talkie” as @gopolks thinks. It’s a hearing aid. Even those on Youtube know the story.

    • ghodicu

      I hope I don’t come off as offensive here, just trying to comment on what bigbuddak was saying, though I am relatively sure he was merely trying to be silly. Backwards time travel has not conclusively shown to be viable under physics as we currently understand it. Many are of the OPINION that it is impossible but that hasn’t been shown either (though admittedly proving a negative is very hard). Forwards time travel is not only allowable by the current laws of physics but really very simple, in a way. All one has to do is go very fast. Now it is true that the speeds we are talking about are fantastically out of the reach of current technology but it is possible that eventually technology will advance to this point. Once again, though, this would allow easy forward time travel, not backwards. As it seems now, were a society to have the knowledge and technology to perform some sort of backwards time travel, they almost certainly would be capable of forward time travel, as it is a much simpler problem.

    • propagainda

      Don’t you all think maybe its a little ignorant to answer this question based off our laws of physics or to think any of us have a true idea of whether or not time travel is possible. You all right and wrong. Your right because these “hypotheses” are based on our little perceptions of what the universe is. Its all relative. All animals perceive the world in different ways so you can’t genuinely believe that the way we see and understand the world is how it actually is. Your wrong because our laws of physics only apply to our perceptions and even then, don’t apply across the universe. If they don’t apply across the universe how can see even begin to understand it? That said, if it was true we would never know about it as it would be the most protected secret in our existence as its obvious ability to cause chaos. But to think that we have any understanding of the reality of this universe and whatever is beyond it is ridiculous and ignorant, as we cant even begin to explain life, consciousness, thought, love, emotions, and instinct. If we can’t understand what these parts of our world, even though these are what makes up our world, how do you think we could understand time travel, which is solely based on a PERCEPTION of the human mind?

    • chris

      this is hilarious and cute if people would actually believe this, i don’t think anyone has to make another argument on this

    • Miranda

      Wibbley wobbly, timey wimey…stuff. The Doctor would be proud. Interesting ideas though. I have heard a few of these theories before.

  • http://www.facebook.com/NaddiiSpud Nadine ‘Spudson’ Hudson

    I’m not sure if anyone will be interested but i’ve recently searched up footage of Marilyn Monroe’s funeral. Now remember her funeral took place in 1962. In the footage there appears to be a woman using a mobile phone. Something similar to “The Circus” .

    • Dooober

      Did they build cell towers in 1962 as well? Who was her service provider? I would think Verizon.

    • Safred

      Hi, where I can see footage from the funeral of Marilyn Monroe?

  • rhobere

    Personally, I’m skeptical that time travel would be possible to a time BEFORE the invention of a time travelling device. Physics doesn’t designate any point in space as unique therefore without a device creating a logical start and stop point in space, there would be no way for a traveller to just happen to end up on earth. We’re not sitting still in space. We’re hurtling around the sun at 67,000 mph while the sun is hurtling around the galactic core at half a million mph while the galaxy is no doubt hurtling through space at an insane velocity imeasurable except in relation to other galaxies. There is no “absolute” velocity with relation to space-time so there would literally be no way to predict the EXACT spacial location of the Earth nor would it be possible to know our exact spatial location with relation to where the Earth once was. In other words, if you travel through time with something like the Delorean in Back to the Future, you’ll find yourself floating around in the vacuum of space (or whatever celestial body happens to be occupying that point in space, but most likely nothing), not at the same location on Earth at a different point in time. Even going back in time one day would leave you in a quite a predicament as we will have moved between 11.5 trillion and 15 trillion miles with relation to the galactic center and this doesn’t even take into account the (impossible to obtain) velocity of the galaxy as a whole.

    One would need a time machine that stays at a fixed point in space if they actually wanted to end up on Earth. You would leave this time from it and arrive at another time as if you never left the machine. The problem here is obvious. You can’t travel to a point in time where the machine doesn’t exist whether past or future. This would make travel to a time BEFORE the invention of the machine impossible.

    The most realistic scenario for time travel is the scenario proposed by Kip Thorne in which a man-sized wormhole is propelled at relativistic speeds for a round-trip to the Andromeda galaxy. One end would experience time normally (and remain in the past) while the other would return to Earth thousands of years in the future. One could step through the wormhole into the past/future, but you’ll see that this is even more restricting as you can only go back and forth a certain distance in time. That is, time will flow normally at each end of the wormhole so there would be a constant number (say 6000 years) that you would be able to travel. Not a second more or a second less.

    So, that being said, I highly doubt any of these people were time travellers.

    • Rob Schwarz

      For the record, I agree with you (both on how time travel would likely play out, and the likelihood that any of the above pictures are evidence of, well, anything). But I’ve always found time travel claims interesting.

      Anyway, I really like how time travel worked in the movie Primer, despite how confusing it could get. You could only travel back to when the box was turned on, etc. One of my favorites.

  • Toni

    I assume that if backward time travel is possible, it would be at a time further in the future that our time now, when:
    1- Mobile phones could be different, i.e. they are not bulky and held by hand (maybe wireless, etc..)
    2- CD’s would not be used anymore to take them back to the 1800′s
    3- Watches could also have different styles
    4- T-shirts / sunglasses etc… could also be different
    What is shown from the photos’s are objects that are available at our time now, which lacks imagination.

    • Rob Schwarz

      You make a good point about most (if not all) time travel claims like this.

      They always contain objects we’d be familiar with from modern time. Like you said, watches, CDs, modern clothing. Never anything futuristic or unfamiliar.

      I’m not altogether convinced time travel to the past is even possible in the first place, so perhaps it’s a moot point, but you’d’ think a civilization capable of time travel would have technology that would make ours utterly obsolete (then again, maybe they’re smart like Doc Brown and make sure not to take anything from the future back with them…or not).

      It reminds me of the people who used to call into Coast to Coast AM during Open Time Lines. They’d claim to be from the year 3,000 or something, yet their dialect and language would be from modern times. Funny.

    • Ray

      Good point! Some things are obvious as soon as they are stated.

  • john titor

    oh im sure it is posible . what goes up comes back down at least here. time travel is about energy not pressure . think of it as harnessed sound waves .

    • Okabe

      @John titor. I am huonin kyouma. I have an invention. I call it the phone microwave(name subject to change).

    • Akane

      @Toni In theory we could already have the technology for time travel in our modern society and the government could just be keeping it as one of the worlds most protected secrets like propagainda stated. Which would be plausible because think of the amount of havoc time travel would cause humans would run themselves extinct with endless fighting going back in time to change mistakes, people wanting to be a “hero” and preventing tragedies such as 9/11, Slavery (of all races), etc. Think about it if Einstein did succeed in his time travel experiment then for all we know someone in power could have said it failed and hid it away, only to be used by people in power to gain more power.

  • Jeff

    Video’s of people talking on a cell phone back in time… how would the cell phone get reception if there were no cell towers back then? So from a technical stand point; it doesn’t make sense.

    • keshav

      Hello , I would like to comment , very true that cells wont be useful to make or receive calls bcaz there wont be any towers or signals . But yes you can shoot or take a picture with your phone. bcaz its just a camera ! but modern

  • gerard

    Ok, let’s get one thing straight; time is imaginary. It is a result of memory and planning. Ever heard of space-time? Simply put there is but one time, ever. The now. One plethora of atoms that exist and are moving about producing the appearance of change, molding into new elements and being ionized into energies, blah, blah, blah. Main idea is that this is a closed system. There is nothing anywhere real that points to multiple time lines or the ability to revert google’s of tons of matter and peta-hertz’s of energy into states it used to exist in. I hope I’m wrong, but…

  • an observer

    So….with all the soldiers and other individuals available to DARPA to choose from, to send to Lincoln’s Gettysburg address…why? Why did they choose a youth, rather than an adult? Why did he lose just his shoes, and not his coat, or his arm, or part of his colon? Why send someone at all, and why send someone to, of all things, a speech? Granted, an important speech, but still, with all of time presumably at your fingertips, why send someone to something that has been relatively well-documented already? This sounds implausible on it’s face, and as the gentleman said, I think we’ll all need to see some strong proof to even consider believing such claims.

  • Lucas

    Time travel is only theoretical at this point in time…And theoretically you can only move forward in time opposed to backwards. http://arstechnica.com/science/2012/07/steven-hawking-on-time-travel-m-theory-and-extra-terrestrial-life/

  • Yammus Baggus

    @ an observer, it would be ridiculous to suggest that his colon would get left behind. He would need some way to poop in the past for him to still be alive today. Logic, please.

  • Allan

    I also wonder why would DARPA send a boy and not an adult back in time if this time travel project were true. Did Andrew Basiago travel alone back in time? If so, who might’ve took his picture then?

    • Ronald Kearns

      Why does the photographer have to be a time traveller? Its a photo taken by someone doing exactly that, taking a photo. Looking a lil bit too much into it.

  • joe

    i think the first picture is definitely evidence of time travel, i mean come on, a delorean? that shit is straight out of back to the future

  • bev

    the watch in the Chinese tomb is a ring watch, My mom had one, real big in part of the early 70,s now how it got there who knows…Had a metal detector one hit a metal abject.. Dug about two feet down .. Found a penny from same year we where digging..

  • Alex

    Why people always prefer to complicate things? If I learned something in this life, is the fact that the answer to such mysteries is always the simplest. Every man has the right to believe what he chooses to believe, but why in the world would you prefer to believe that a woman holding her hand to her ear while passing in front of a camera (which was something pretty awesome at that time), is a time traveler. Wouldn’t you say that it’s a thousand times more plausible that she was just a little shy, and she was just trying to cover her face with her purse and possibly speaking with the guy filming? Not sure if this is what exactly happened, but I strongly put this on top of the time travel theory.
    Why are they hiding area 51 and not tell what are they doing in there…they surely have aliens in there and UFO’s. It’s a secret testing facility where they test airplanes prototypes. They can’t just tell everyone what they are testing because then they would attract international attention on there.
    I think people always try to spice up the boring society we live in, and try to attract attention. One example would be the Nibiru planet that it’s suppose to come in December and the Anunakki that need our gold. Everyone need attention, and the best way to do it, is online, and presuming monsters/aliens/conspiracy/ufo each time a new old photo appears. The story gets every time more distorted and webmasters keep evolving this false information because it keeps the traffing going. People invented stories and even write whole books in order to make crystal skulls a real mystery and add value to them in order to sell them.

    I guess I jumped off track a little, but what I mean is that we should all focus our attention to the root of all false information and stories…resources/money. Some are doing it for the attention, some for the money, and some just because the information gets so much circulated that it becomes true :)

  • http://roma.xincontriadulti.it/ Donne Roma

    Great idea for a post.Thank you!

  • cnass

    time is non existent. we have created the idea of time, only so we can organize things and events, etcc. if you look at before, now and then as one never ending, never beginning string, then it is possible to travel to any time. and if you go to the past and change something, the come back to the future, nothing would be different because logically speaking you already would have done that in the past, ( like in futurama when fry kills his Grandfather, fry didnt die because his grandfather was never his grandfather: he is his grandfather and always was!)

  • http://hogbinism/twitter.com hogbinism

    The strange thing is we have just now discovered that wormholes exist within us, people talk of streching these wormholes bu as someknow this would cause all manner of problems, so l say time travel will be eventually done through infact the mind, the greatest computer ever build.

  • Mike B

    Get well soon, Bigbuddak.

  • ross

    Time and our perception of it is based on the interaction and decay of subatomic particles and their relation in terms of energy to the ‘light barrier’ (The speed of light where matter becomes energy and ceases to function in a way we understand.) and to gravity it’s self, which may or may not be an effect created by a subatomic particle.Anyway the point is some particles have been made to jump in time by effecting their properties. It’s a technique you’ve all heard of, teleportation, because when you make something jump in space, you make it jump in time too.

    To date it’s only been done with individual electrons and photons, but the theories sound, you can make SAPs teleport to anywhere in time and space by making them instantly swop characteristics via something called quantum entanglement with each other. However in order to do this you need to know the characteristics of not only the SAP’s you want to port, but also the SAP’s you want to interchange them with (they dpnt actually trade places, just characteristics) And the only way to do that is to have a computer that’s powerful enough it can calculate a SAP’s past characteristics by anaylising it’s present ones and figuring out what’s making it behave the way it is now and so allowing it’s to simulate it’s past behaviors by eliminating present modifiers and applying a set of modifiers as they where calculated for the past.

    This is obviously an insanely epic task far beyond the power of present day computers, But here’s the kicker, if anyone ever does get a computer this powerful traveling in time becomes redundant because if the computer can simulate the past to such a level of detail as to allow a quantum entanglement then all you need to do is watch the simulation on your holo deck / virtual reality projection system, you don’t need to travel there, you can effectively remote view it, you might actually be able to remote view it if you could build a device that could read and interprate the natural entanglements that happen between SAP’s anyway. The only time anyone or thing would travel in time is when they needed to change something, (which isn’t as big a no no as you think as technically all eventualities are played out anyway.) but all actual observation could be done remotely in what is actually a similar process to how radio and tv signals are remotely viewed (it would just be done across the entire energy / matter spectrum instead of just a tiny electromagnetic piece of it.)

    Just wanted to bring some almost factual science and logic into this.

  • Ed

    I wish time travel were possible, but I’m afraid it is not because time does not exist, humans invented time.

  • nonya

    To all the people who keep saying that time does not exist: YES IT DOES. It is in fact PROVEN to exist. Do some reading on Einstein’s theory of relativity. Study time dilation. Time is not merely an artistic construct of humans. It is PART of the UNIVERSE.

    • Sbyb

      Sorry Nonya but Einstein’s theory is about space-time, his theory tend to prove that gravity and acceleration forces can bend the structure of space-time.
      Then that induce that if we find a way to create wormholes we should be able to travel through space and “Time”…
      @ Anne Henderson: I do think exactly the same way, I just wany to add that for me the only thing important is to focus on Here & Now in this big experiment…

  • jaguar

    Well, well, well.

    Lets say, that time travel is possible, lets just say, lets..

    A: Ok, who owns the technology?
    B: They could presumably go back, forward, etc, seems ;like the world still is at war, and no-one is really in power, so the time bandits suck eggs, smelly eggs, mermaid old fish tail wives story eggs.
    C: Do you think the “owners” creators of this science would ever tell man, civilians, let alone military departments.

    Now lets say they are still trying to make this science work, ok, plausible, right, ok, so who invested how much into the CERN project and if they already had the technology working CERN would already be operational and successful, trust me, and no-one would ever know it existed.

    I can add to your theories, photo’s above they are all good ideas, but each one has been dropped on it’s head.

    But there is a way to be in one place in one moment and another place seconds later some 400 miles away, without any damage to the person, who’s knows this?

    The secret lies in the Vatican vaults, secret archives. So good luck finding it, but it is there.
    Jesus was one of the privileged who could do it. Hint, hint…..

    But it’s not a machine…….

  • http://none john

    To travel in time you must break the speed of light. I have done this by “gating” different currents of elec. together and forcing them down a single wire.I get only wire decay and a strange distorted current.I am a nobody.If I can do this,our goverment has this and much more. Get ready.

  • 2L82Pray

    Without debating the science and having only skimmed most replies because the theory of time travel itself is above my expertise, I have several points

    *You can’t use a cell phone without a cell phone Tower. How would one use a cell phone in the 20′s-30′s if there are no towers or satellites to pick up the signal? Is it some other type of device? Perhaps, but it can’t be a cell phone. For some reason, that suggestion irked me.

    *Why would anyone chose to leave behind all modern conveniences and health care to travel back in time (without a way back, if you’re to be believed, Bigbuddak), just to find out information that can be easily found in newspapers, literature, journals, photographs and first hand accounts of that time period? If you’d said, They give up their whole life in the modern world, chose extreme isolation and risk death by appendicitis to change a horrible event that occurred and Save all of humanity from annihilation… OK, they’re my heroes. But you actually claim they give up everything…. to find out what slang someone in 1890 or what underwear they put on? I could find that out with a trip to the library, or Google.

    *Realizing I came late to this conversation, and no one will probably ever see this, having moved on in your own timelines to brighter things… Do we really believe everything the Chinese Government Claims? I would say their credibility is slightly strained, and I would have to see more proof than a single picture of a random person holding up a ring-watch to believe this is time travel. Also, just because one believes the tomb was undisturbed, doesn’t mean it was undisturbed for 400 years. Grave robbers, foreigners trying to sneak in without the Chinese governments knowledge….curious travelers who accidentally fell into a place they knew they shouldn’t be and covered up the evidence of their passing. These are far more plausible than time travel

    • Rob Schwarz

      All great points! Especially regarding the absence of modern health care, etc. I’d never given that particular inconvenience much thought in terms of time travel.

      And I do, personally, read all of the comments here, if that counts for anything. Some are strange, but the conversations this post has sparked have at least been…interesting.

  • Alex

    Ok, with “the cellphone lady”, what towers would she be using while talking on the cellphone in that time? So that’s disproven. The guy in the picture is wearing pilot goggles, his hairstyle is vintage and also his clothes. Disproven again. With the watch found in the tomb thingy, it is supposed that it was untouched for that amount of years, doesn’t mean it wasn’t. There is no such thing as time travel because time is not dimensional so yeah. No evidence as of yet.

    • joebe

      Just because you say there is no evidence it is not true it still can be true it is that you just have not got the evidence as of yet.

  • Person1

    It would not matter what a time traveller did if we are in lets say string one including 1 set past and future going back in time would create a string two because our past is already set, going into the future i don’t really have a clue on I would assume it would continue of string one because you are not altering events that have already happened you would be creating the events that were bound to happen from what was done in present time. So by saying that we could have time travellers but that would make it so we are not in the original string of events. I don’t know about you but thats a bit mind blowing to know we could be the alternate reality and there is an original.

  • Ryan

    time travel might actually be possible if you could go the speed of light becuase if you were travling the spped of light in space for 11 hour the earth will age and you will not.

  • Ryan

    time is not linear its non linear

  • kris.b.borderlands

    Time travel is possible in the far future perhaps, just not now, and come to think of it, sending a person back in time is actually a ridiculous idea, what a waste of resources, you have to de-molecualrize him and virtually assemble him from at the given point in time, which would make him a replica, not the same guy who was send in the first place, he would not even have the same conscious reality perception, in short time travel as said in Sci-fi is a waste of time,
    Now, the best way to actually do this is to send information back into time, electrons carefully impregnated with data , that can be send back to the past, it could be captured as light by eyes, and the person who gets it instanty gets the information that was send back, this could be useful s ideas, needed to make a change in wahtsoever direction that the sender chooses..
    Come to think of it, if indeed such a thing is possible, then all the wars ad inventions and information we have know could be an uncnsious flow of information thats being transferred from some distant point in the future, Think of it.. lol.

    Time travel is not possible for one reason: doing so changes the mass of the universe, and thus would enable the mass of the universe to become infinite. Changing the mass of the universe is inherently impossible because this would result in changes to the fundamental constants that define the very foundations of physics; the gravitational constant, the Hubble constant, even the speed of light, are all related to the mass of the universe. Not to mention to concomitant violations of the laws of thermodynamics and the effective reversal of entropy that would be involved in such a mass change.

    To demonstrate how time travel alters the mass of the universe, consider this scenario: I transport myself back in time to 5 minutes ago, so that my current self is standing beside my earlier self. There are now two of me at the same time; thus the mass of the universe has increased by my mass. We wait five minutes. At this point we have both returned to now. My ‘earlier’ self goes back in time (because I’d already done that), but my ‘current’ self also goes back in time, meaning that five minutes ago there are now three of me at that point in time – and the mass of the universe has increased again. Repeat this ad infinitum (remember we have effectively infinite time because we’re cycling through the same five-minute period here, over and over) and you can see that there ultimately turns out to be infinite copies of me, comprising infinite mass. QED.

    We know the universe does not have infinite mass, because there is empty space between all massive objects; if the mass of the universe was infinite there would be no space. In fact, an infinite-mass universe could only a be a black hole in its entirety and nothing else.

    Finally, it’s become self-evident that all this extra mass has, from the point of view of the universe, been created out of nothing – a clear violation of the first law of thermodynamics. Since, by Einstein (E = mc^2), energy and mass are functionally equivalent, it would be theoretically possible, for example, to build a perpetual motion machine by recursively time-transporting any energy source until the source becomes infinite and then using that energy to run the machine forever. Again, the laws of thermodynamics can go hang.

    So from this, it seems quite reasonable to draw the conclusion that time travel is impossible for this reason alone, even if no other reason existed.

  • John

    John Titor saying hello,

    I am not John, but you may call be John being as how popular his conquests have become. His legend, as it where, grew so big that all of our vaulenteers were code named ‘John’ from the beginning, our beginning.

    Our beginning took place 8 years prior to when John’s team first accomplished time warp technology. His return to your time, coupled with his messages to the people of your time, sparked a great interest in time travel that accelerated the discovery process. We not only discovered that time can flow forwards and backward, but, like John’s team we learned to move transdimensionally, only we learned to control the direction in which we traveled. We didn’t do this alone.

    Our team was visited by a group from our future that called themselves States Men. They guided us through several aspects of time travel technology and hoe to control its rotation. They made it very clear there are strict guidelines in place for traveling from one plain to the next. We moved with caution.

    The States Men were very interested in how our technology was influenced by the indirect actions of John Titor. Our first task was to travel to a list of dates and times to assess if other time travelers had been there. Unlike what John has said, when you go back in one dimension it does effect the next. These changes will be discussed at a later date. Our research concluded that not only had others visited these dates, but they were not all from our future. What we discovered is that time distortion can be achieved a number of ways, and not all of them are mechanical.

    The above photos are very comical, with the exception of one. The man in the sunglasses was indeed a time traveler. He and I were very close in training and he was the second of our team to travel back through time.

    • irememberallthelies

      well what if time is perceived in a radio wave like form to the brain where we are tuning into only that moment at that moment. we could technically then tune into other parts in time with our brains. time isnt linear, and this is one explanation of how the brain may perceive time. just a thought as i am not an expert.

  • A man

    I promise time travel is possible. I have been visited by a traveler from the future. I know its not something i can prove a.t.m. but its true. This man’s mission was to have me eat 4 bowls of carrot soup. I know this sounds funny and I can’t tell you why, because i don’t know why. He told me of certain future events that only someone of my nature would pay very close attention to. These events have happen and the chances he was predicting them are not possible. This man was a very nice guy that was only interested in me and was not at all about himself. He knew my family and I but we had never seen this man. I got some of the best feelings from the mans intentions. I believe in Jesus Christ and feel their is no reason to lie about such things. I don’t need people to prove me wrong because it will get all of us no where. This happen after I turned 21 years old, I am now 28. Since then I have become aware of so much more then I thought was possible. Ive also been threw a lot of hard times and realize why this man didn’t warn me about anything to do with me. The man told me I would see what he was saying for myself when the time came. The events are of no importance to my well being and have not changed anything for me.

    My theory of time travel is about vibrational energy’s. Only those who understand would be capable of such a feat. What people fail to realize is that we are simple people with simple minds. Just because we see no way to do what seem impossible doesn’t mean its not achievable. I can’t explain how everything works because I do not know. Inner peace can play a major role on understanding things. Listening to people that doubt everything because they don’t understand is foolish. When people become angry and curse of those things they don’t understand is no different then being cursed.

    Think about it. Right now, we have the super rich paying for flights into space. So why do we assume that in the future, if time travel becomes reality, that people would travel to the past for scientific purposes? I can imagine a huge tourist industry built around time travel. What better vacation for world weary future dwellers, than to go back in time and experience the world at a favorite time? I would love to visit the turn of the last century, and then go back home in a week or so. Yeah, Dr. Who has a great job.

    An obvious question for Basiago: WHO took the ‘photo’? How was said photo FORWARDED to Basiago’s modern era AFTER THE SILVER-PLATE NEGATIVE TOOK HOURS (!) to develop??!

    About the 1928 & 1938 women on cell phones….exactly how would they even work? No cell towers, no satellites and no one else to talk to.

    • joebe

      Maybe in time there will be no need for cell towers, no satellites
      all will work like walkie talkie.

  • Marls

    In my humble opinion the only way time travel is possible is thru meditation – like astral transport which is an ancient practice perfected after years of concentration by yogis and monks.
    Do they reckon time travel is the same as the teleportation Andrew Basiago refers to and which he claims he and Obama did when they supposedly teleported themselves to Mars? Man has the capacity to realize amazing feats but we often don’t see that physics and mysticism are interconnected. Lol

  • Justin

    So let’s pretend I’m so time traveler. When I get to 1938 the first thing I’m gonna do is pull out my cell phone and talk to who, exactly??? A.) unless I know the chick from Charlie’s movie then there’s probably (definitely) nobody else with a cell phone, and B.) THERE ARE ZERO CELL PHONE TOWERS. Or satellites. (And why isn’t everyone in the picture stunned by an apparent wireless phone??)
    Now let’s pretend I brought back CD’s. The first thing I’m going to do with those is uhhh, nothing. Because I don’t have a computer. So I might as well let some guy take forever painting me with them while nobody makes a big deal about having different technology.
    As for the first picture, it’s either photoshopped or those styles really aren’t as “modern” as we think. Nobody is looking at him like he’s out of place or even really taking notice of him for that matter.
    As for the tomb, pocket watches had been around since the 1600′s. Wristwatches weren’t invented until the later 1800′s. Maybe a traveler from china discovered the Swiss were just ahead of the current? After all, pocket watches were making money for the time being.

    the photos supposedly mobile phones ……….. can’t be cause even if they are time travellers and took mobile phones with them ..surely they wouldn’t work because the phone masts/towers that now pepper the countryside these days didn’t exsist then so any mobile phones taken back to the time of the photo wouldn’t work

    • Rob Schwarz

      Probably not. However, some would claim that any time travelers from the future would likely have the technology to communicate “through time.” Not sure how that would work, but…

      Of course, I don’t personally believe this stuff is evidence of anything, really. Interesting claims, though.

    Man, the people with first hand time travel experience or those with complex time travel stories seriously need to get off the drugs.

  • Stew

    I am not one that would normaly post something on a site like this, however I do have a couple of things to say. I am not saying that I believe or disbelieve the theory of time travel. I agree with arguments on both sides. But here are a couple of things that are simply food for thought.
    1. When Dick Tracey comics first come out, he had things like a telephone in his watch. Once again during that time there were no Cell Towers, no satelites, yet some how he had a phone that worked. Now that technology is available.
    2. During the 60s Star Trek came out and they had computers, fought with stun guns, operated with lasers, etc. Now we have these technologies.
    Although the technology that we have today may not be exactly what people imagined 50, 75 or even 100 years ago, but it is still there. I believe that if a person can imagine something, that somewhere at some point there will be someone that can make it a reality. As far as Time Travel goes, people have been discussing this for 100′s of years. Who am I to say if it exist or doesn’t.
    For all of you that absolutly refuse to beleive that this is possible, I am just glad you weren;t around the Wright Brothers, or Mr. Bell, or Thomas Edison. Because we sould surely still be in the dark ages.

    • Jaime Arevalo

      Damn straight Stew! I agree completely with your comment. If we can imagine it, we can eventually create it. There are many more examples of tech from sci-fi than what you wrote and the more we imagine, the more we will have in the future. All we need as a race is drive and motivation and most importantly to have people around us that encourage us not put us down.

    • StarFox1987

      That is the beauty of Manifestation. I believe one of the largest problems is the direction of global consciousness. Also regarding technology, it is a beautiful age we live in where so much information (using the right sources) is directly at our fingertips. Because of this, we can now teach ourselves, (the basics anyways) of Physics, Biology, Mathematics, Carpentry, Engineering, and anything we desire. But with the boom of social networking, it seems all people want to do is study what their friends did the night previous. The internet and especially social networking was meant to bring people closer together, but I believe we couldn’t be farther apart from each other as human beings. It feels like our natural interaction with other humans is diminishing rapidly. While some of us can still see eye to eye, even if we disagree, the majority are hung up on how quickly they can try to bring others down, I see more and more every day how people are thriving on insulting others, and taking joy from it. But the way I started looking at it to stay positive is this, people are very afraid of what they do not understand, If said person is insulting towards me because of my beliefs, or they are just 100% skeptic, I just believe that they are a younger soul and do not understand yet. I sometimes ask for them to be woken up. In the end I always feel more privileged to know that I have a choice to believe or not, rather than just shutting it off and living in the dark.

  • http://www.edgelink.com Travis Militzer

    Well according to stephen hawking… who knows way more than any of us about the physics of theoretical time travel… It could only happen forward in time, not backwards. The basic theory is that if the human body could somehow survive speeds faster than the speed of light, it would have different effects on the body and the person could end up years in the future with very few years of aging on the human body. So it’s kind of like time traveling because it could be 1000 years later, but your body has only aged 2 years in human time.

    Backwards in time though is a totally different thing… and for that you’d have to believe in multiple dimensions to be possible which is a completely different concept.

    • irememberallthelies

      i have thought the same about the dimensions part. i think this is how ufo’s disappear like they do. they are dimension hoping. maybe they are not from space but another earthy dimension hence we all appear to look the same.

    • Jaime Arevalo

      For reals man, I have thought of that too. To travel from another galaxy is nuts…. thinking about the time it would take. Even traveling at the speed of light it would take for ever to get from one to another galaxy. But to think that all you are doing is hopping from another dimension (like in that show Fringe) is quite fascinating. We wouldn’t be talking about distances anymore, but another plane altogether. And now with the theory of a multi-verse becoming more popular… oh man! I get so excited with this topic. Another earth, where humans evolved slightly differently giving us bigger heads and bigger eyes maybe do to the fact that their earth is much darker or whatever… I can write about this for hours. But I will stop here.

    • irememberallthelies

      Ah yes. I saw something recently on string theory and the math surrounding it and it actually works. All forces on is are the same except gravity. It’s really weak compared to all the others. When using the formula for the others when it’s used with strongtheory Iit actually fits for the math coming from another dimension to here actually which is strange it’s the same formula added into the string theory formula. I have no idea how of course bit it was on the science channel I think on through the wormhole. This would explain why ufo’s disappear suddenly and can reappear like the video from stonehenge which has one of those high intersecting magnetic fields at it. There is water underneath it just like at the pyramids that gives it it’s energy combined with what they built there. Honestly a machine of sorts but made from stone. I know the pyramids have a ton of conclusive evidence of how the water used to hit to ceiling of the lower chamber enough to where it cracked it and water eroded it and there is an aquifer below it too. Of course there is evidence of mars having life with the mathematics used in structures that are used the same in egypt and elsewhere. Then the stories of the mars god being eaten by serpent head god with feathers that is drawn looking like a comet and the ancient gods were said to have mined for god for their atmosphere which is something mars lacks now. Our bone density is more suited for mars along with muscle structure. So this would be assuming the ancient stories are correct of them using their dna with ours which was the knowledge from the tree of life in the bible which when drawn looks like a doublehelix.

    • Jaime Arevalo

      Interesting stuff man. That’s all I’m saying. We really know nothing compared to all there is out there. String theory blows my mind every time I read about it. I agree. Pilots of UFOs just have better tech and a better understanding of what we are just starting to learn. Magnetism is so much stronger than gravity too, I bet that magnetism is the key to traveling between dimensions.

    • StarFox1987

      Extraterrestrials are able to travel anywhere due to the engines they have in their ships. Ever wonder why most portrayed as a round disc shape? It is because the ship is built around the engine. It is called a Centerfuge engine. It is essentially an electrically charged metal doughnut with a super ferric fluid inside (a liquid-metal which travels with zero resistance). This liquid-metal shaped doughnut is then set around a magnetic spindle then electrically charged. Once charged the fluid in the doughnut begins to flow at incredible speed to at which point creates a gravitational field not unlike Earth’s around the craft. Now, we all know space/time is a bendable fabric, so what this ship can now do is distort space/time around the ship in order to “jump” or “warp” to interplanetary or inter dimensional locations.

    • irememberallthelies

      It can go both ways. The old drawings from India and their flying machines had “mercury” core type deal which it may have been something else. Not all ufos are from other worlds. I think there are intermission Al beings which would explain ghosts, demons, and other stuff. The military is supposed to havethat reverse magnetic pulse engine that runs silent and reduces the ships weight for flight by altering gravity somewhat. II’m pointing out the laws of physics don’t work fro gravity like all other forces do. The math doesn’t fit unless it originates in another dimension.

    • StarFox1987

      But see time travel must allow us to go anywhere in time. Just as easily as the man who went 1000 years into the future, another man could use the same gateway and visit this time and potentially alter his future as well, but because of paradoxes, there would need to be an alternate reality for this traveler from the future visiting us, the normal dimension he came from, and the parallel dimension he created. So in turn what I believe is that time travel is universal and must have the parallel fail safe running along side. In regards to the human body being subjected to speeds near and or above the speed of light, we just need to move space/time around us rather than us moving ourselves. A technology which is also related to interplanetary and inter dimensional travel.

      well technically the waves would be able to travel inter-dimensionally like gravity and other forces. it may not be time travel but more dimension hoping who really knows lol. i do believe there are many dimensions and anything that is possible happens in them all. this would explain how ufo’s appear and disappear really fast like at stonehenge and places where the ley lines produce a lot of energy.

      The things that are assumed to be cell phones are actually small hand radios and the thing that looks like a CD case is a glass plate used in cameras from the late 1800′s as film. Sorry to burst your bubble guys.

    • mary

      Uhhh small (transitor) radios had not been invented in 1928… I also noticed that lady was, or appeared to be, talking and acting as one would on a cell phone.

      Now, maybe she was talking to the man 8-10 feet in front of her, on what appeared o be a loud busy street, and prehaps that was a small music box she was listening to, but it was not a radio, unless she was a time traveler that is. ;-) a small radio would be as much an anomaly as a cell hone in the 1920s. Makes me think the video was not made in the 1920s at all, but is a modern film of a movie set from a period picture.

      I’m pretty sure the film has been authenticated as real and of the period but the cell phone thingy, well that’s another story.

    • Billy Pollina

      Except they didn’t have small handheld radios back then. I’m not saying it is a cell phone but it isn’t a hand held radio either.

      A quantum entanglement communicator wouldn’t! You could communicate with anyone on the other end regardless of distance/time. It would not need any type of transmitting tower. :)

    • Alex Yamach

      Yeah the cell phone towers to transmitt the signals hadn’t been built so they wouldn’t work. Just because someone is seen holding something square to the side of their face and talking, doesn’t prove it is a cell phone.

    Regardless of the validity of these photos, it’s hilarious that people are actually trying to argue the possibility of time travel scientifically. How the hell does anyone know the concepts and foundation of time travel? If they did this page would be redundant!

    • Jodi Hickman

      There is this thing called physics.. knowledge of it can expand your mind a lot. This is how people are able to have arguments worth considering over the possibility of time travel. It IS possible if you understand all of the concepts- problem is, those concepts are all difficult to understand if you arent a physicist or used to reading that kind of material. Start with Steven Hawkings. Imagine if you lived before electricity was invented and someone told you I know how to use science and make light appear at the flip of a switch. You wouldn’t have a clue as to how they would do it and a debate over the possibility of it it would sound pretty hilarious, if you didnt understand how the scientific concepts they were explaining worked..

    The biggest issue I have with time travel isn’t the fact that people would purposely go back to change things. My problem comes from the millions of seemingly tiny problems that would snow ball. Lets say I go back in time. I don’t touch anything or speak to anyone. But because I’m standing where someone else was a mosquito bites me instead of them. They don’t get malaria and die. That person has a child who grows up to be worse than any dictator the world has yet seen. Perhaps, even worse, Grace Stirling Morton walks around me only to be accidentally killed by something (maybe a run away horse?) so she isn’t around to give birth to Alexander Fleming. Since Fleming wasn’t around maybe it took another 20 years for penicillin to be discovered. How many thousands of people would die from that chance accident. The problem with time travel isn’t that someone would go back and shoot Hitler, it’s that they would sneeze.

So he went back in time then bought new clothes to fit in? Dumb. Almost all of these pictures and videos have been exhaustively debunked, especially the lady with the cell phone clip. It’s an early 2-way communication device like a walkie-talkie – Whoop de doo!!! Lets have some real facts and proof.

    the woman in the dupont picture/video WAS on a cell device that dupont was testing with a range that only reached the campus. This has appeared in “time travel” videos and the woman in the video has spoken on this subject and what the device was. YES it was one of the first cell phone devices but functioned more like a walkie talkie.

    • Billy Pollina

      Um no. You can’t say a cell phone functioned more like a walkie talkie. A cell phone functioning like a walkie talkie is a walkie talkie. Both cell phones and walkie talkies operate on radio waves but a cell phone by definition is operating on a network of cells. This is primarily what makes it a cell phone. This is one way we are able to have so many phones in so many areas with decent clarity. Cell technology and mobile phones were made commercially available in the early 70′s but had been in development for several years but not in the 30s. In the 30s we were just figuring out how to harness the power of AM and FM radio waves as a two-way communication vehicle. Walkie Talkies operate off of radio waves too but free forming waves, simply put it’s kind of like they’re flying all over the place and not directed through cells. In the 30s harnessing the power of and developing radio was brand new so it would have had to of been a very, very early version of a walkie talkie which means it would have operated on AM waves (very weak) and it would be huge, like the size of a breadbox and the battery would be even bigger like the size of a home laser printer. The woman, in short, would have had to been walking with someone else who would be helping her carry the enormous piece of equipment. Dupont was then and is now primarily involved with materials science and in the 30s they would have been completely focused on nylon and plutonium. Radio and communications was not their thing.

    1) No, the tomb was not sealed for 400 years. That’s obvious by the presence of the watch-ring.
    2) It’s just a guy with a forward thinking fashion sense. . . . By that logic, you might say Bjork, Dennis Rodman, Marilyn Manson, Lady Gaga, and countless others are time travelers.
    3) There were no cell phones at the time, so an intelligent person might think she’s holding a small music box or using a handkerchief, or anything before assuming time travel.
    4) See #3, though it looks more like she’s holding nothing at all and that her hand is just near her face.
    5) Yes, lets believe everything everyone ever says. It’s just a photo of a boy.
    6) Without DNA evidence, we must assume the person just had the same look.
    7) This is all BS. I’ve read the whole sight and every single one of Titor’s predictions have NOT come true. Be wary of websites making fantastic claims and selling merchandise. Chances are, it’s just about the merchandise.
    8) It’s just a box with a glass top. . . . Like a diorama or a music box or anything other than a CD box.
    9) If this worked, someone would have patented it and sold it by now.
    10) Admitted Hoax
    11) So, its a guy that looks like JZ. I’ve seen several old photos of people that look like me, and I’m not a time traveler. I do, however, have genetic similarities to those in my family. Chances are, this is a photo of JZ’s great grandfather’s cousin, or something.

    Man invented time , right now it is 12:17 in Florida this is just a mathematical calculation of the rotation of the earth and where the sun is hitting the planet and how long it will be before it hits where I am again . Do you not understand that time is just here to establish order so that we are not just rotating around the sun aimlessly and unaware . time is used to establish patterns in space , to help you get to work at an appropriate and calculated TIME . It is not tangible in any way you can’t alter it the only way time travel is even an idea is if you invent a device that simulates and speeds through our rotations around the sun . sounds possible until you remember that this device would have to be all knowing it would mean that we aren’t making our own decisions and that everything we do has been programmed that’s the only way you can move back and forth is if the supposed device is god and knows everything that has happened and everything that will happen . to go back it would need to know where every person who has ever lived was and what they were doing at that time . to go forward it would need to fast forward through all processes of thought and migration of every living and non-living thing . for you to believe in time travel is to believe that your not even real your just a pawn whose life has technically in time travel terms already been lived and can be re-lived whenever

    The man photographed at the bridge opening, has been explained. The type of sunglasses have been used since the 1920s. His shirt is not a graphic tee, as it appears to be. It is a sweater with a pattern woven in. It is very likely that he was just a normal person, in the appropriate time.
    The alleged CD case could be rationally explained as well. It could very well be glass. Why would someone assume that it’s plastic? Is it because we are so used to seeing jewel cases, that we automatically jump to the an illogical conclusion? A small glass plate could have existed for many reasons.
    The man meeting his future self was part of an ad campaign. That is common knowledge. Look into it.
    I find the other instances to be quite intriguing, but the ones that have been disproven should be removed from the site. Until I see definitive evidence against the other claims, I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt.

    — All you have to do is research fashion or type of technology for that time
    period.

    3. The woman on the mobile phone: that is obviously a film about
    that time.

    4. The group of 4 women and one is holding something to her ear:
    that is a money purse – when I was a child sometimes women went out taking just
    the house keys and the money purse.

    5. The modern watch in the tomb saying Swiss made has most
    likely fallen on the ground many years before and in the excavation was pushed
    in with the sand.

    Things always appear strange removed from context. And the
    present day technology allows for a lot of very convincing pictures, specially
    in black and white.

    People, for your sanity, do the research and use the
    “little grey cells” :D

    Most of this silliness above is fun but it’s not really about time travel. It’s about photoshop. That said, I have to believe time travel is possible. In fact I believe it happens all the time in a very controlled environment. I don’t believe it’s a government run program. I believe it’s something that was discovered privately in the not too distant future and used to travel back in time. This means there are time travelers among us now. I’m not sure traveling to the future is possible although if one believes time is truly non-linear I suppose traveling to the future would also be possible. I believe our government and many other governments are aware of time travel and how to do it and pay heavily to keep it tightly controlled. I also believe that there will come a day, quite soon, when time travel is understood by average folks and then time travel will become quite commonplace. In short, hold on to your hats, I think in the next decade things are going to get very interesting, but that’s just me…or is it.

    I can only say that the guy at the bridge opening standing there surrounded by people who don’t seem to react to someone foreign in their midst. if I was to see someone out of character with time (well back then anyway) I certainly would be scrutinizing him. and the ring so small it could have been lost somewhere above ground and storm water might have taken it down.

    Great article! There is, however, something else about time travelers that really annoys the hell out of me. You know how when you’re looking for something you’ve misplaced (or think you have) and there’s literally no place where you haven’t looked, so you go back and start over again and sonofagun, there the thing is, right in front of you? This used to mystify me but now it just pisses me off, and here’s why:

    I’ve developed a theory that not all time travelers are not necessarily nice people, and a goodly number of them may also have what we call a drinking or other recreational drug habit. If this is correct, then your “lost” object’s disappearing/reappearing act is, I believe, the result of something like a couple of of these folks’ getting trashed and making some sort of wager–probably a bar bet–that your item didn’t exist in the late 20th or early 21st century and, when challenged, just jumped into the nearest time machine and snagged it from you to bring back so they can get the 50 solars (with apologies to Arthur C. Clarke) or whatever currency unit they’ll be using from the other guy. And since even the biggest jerks will have it ingrained into their pin-sized brains that nothing must be left permanently changed or disturbed during their travels on pain of (hopefully) death, they must and will return the object to the place from whence they lifted it.

    Makes about as much sense as anything else. Damn idiot time travelers.

    The woman looks nothing like Marilyn Monroe. The incident with the tomb has probably been discredited. I could goolgle it now and probably find it to be bogus. The man in the crowd is most likely photoshopped–duh. The dude with the tattoos is full of crap. Ever see the film, “Time Chasers?” As for the rest of this crap, it is an insult to the possibility of time travel.
