Evidence of time travel is not something to be ignored — these periodic blips of stories, pictures, and artifacts are nothing less than blatant signs that our universe is in peril. The space-time continuum is breaking apart!
Six years ago, I shared the first batch of this evidence. A handful of photographs and video clips that many believed were proof that time travel not only existed, but that individuals from the future had already visited us. Some, it was claimed, had even journeyed back to ancient times.
But they left footprints. Some dropped artifacts, out of place and out of time. Some were mistakenly caught on camera. Others deliberately shared knowledge of their strange voyages. In the years since, their numbers have only grown.
Below you’ll find an overview, continuously updated, of new alleged time travel anomalies, as well as a few reflections on past evidence. Stories, pictures, and clues that the universe does, indeed, face a temporal crisis. Do you believe they’re real?
Only time will tell!
Time Traveler In 1917 Photograph
It’s an odd thing when something, or someone, doesn’t quite fit in. At first, you may not notice. But upon closer inspection, the anomaly becomes clear.
So is the case with this seemingly ordinary photograph taken in 1917 Canada, found in a 1974 book titled The Great History of Cape Scott. It shows a group of people sitting upon the rocks of a beach, but among the crowd is a man who appears suspiciously out of place.
Many believe his clothes do not match those of the other beach-goers. Wearing a tee shirt, shorts, and with a hair style that seems quite modern in comparison, the mysterious individual hits all the check boxes for a person displaced in time.
In the photo, others even appear to look at him, perhaps in confusion.
This particular time traveler is colloquially known as the “surfer dude.”
The Mummy’s Modern Boots
Out-of-place artifacts are a curious phenomenon. When they’re discovered, they may very well shake the foundations of what we previously thought to be true about human history and ancient civilizations. Many of these artifacts, while unusual, are still somewhat explainable, such as the Antikythera mechanism.
Others, however, raise incredible questions.
For some time now, many have wondered about the existence of the so-called “Adidas Mummy,” the preserved body of a 30 to 40-year-old woman discovered in the Altai mountains region of Mongolia in 2016. She had been buried there for about 1,100 years.
Those studying her found that she had likely died of a “blow to the head.” However, it was her feet that drew the most attention.
She wore what looked uncannily like modern day shoes, perhaps resembling a pair of snowboarding boots, as the Daily Mail mused in 2017. They were made of felt, with splashes of bright red, and “knee length” with leather soles.
Their unique design, likened to Adidas, led many to question if perhaps the ancient Mongolian woman was in fact a time traveler. Perhaps, even if the shoes themselves were not from current times, they were made, or possibly inspired, by someone from the future utilizing the same style.
Among her other belongings was what archaeologists described as a “beauty kit,” including a mirror, a comb, and a knife. However, scientists brushed off any claims that she was a time traveler, though they did say the style of the boots was “very modern.”
Nikola Tesla’s Jump Room
For years, Andrew Basiago has told the story of Project Pegasus, the alleged covert time travel initiative that was funded and maintained by the United States government throughout the 1960s and 70s. But perhaps the most interesting detail of his peculiar story is the existence of the so-called Jump Room.
It was in this room that Basiago claimed participants such as himself performed their secretive time travel experiments.
Built using designs by the late Nikola Tesla, recovered from his New York apartment shortly after his death, the room housed what some would call a teleportation machine. It consisted of a “shimmering curtain” made of “radiant energy,” a special, and allegedly as-yet-undisclosed, form of energy that is “latent and pervasive” throughout the cosmos. It is, if this story is to be believed, what makes time travel possible.
The curtain stood between two elliptical booms, and by passing through it, would-be travelers could journey across vast distances — and time itself.
Beyond that, there are few other details about the mysterious Jump Room, and no physical proof remains. Did it really exist?
The Time Slip Hotel: Proof That Even Buildings Time Travel?
It’s not unusual to, on ocassion, find yourself at what you might describe as a “strange” place, especially if you happen to be in a country you’ve never visited before. Two couples who vacationed to Spain in the late 1970s know this all too well. In fact, their story has become something of a time slip legend.
In 1979, they were on their way to Spain, leaving England and venturing through France. While near Montelimar, they decided to stop and search for a hotel. Their original choices were packed, but eventually they did find one — an odd place, an old two-story building with the simple word “HOTEL” above the entrance.
They got a room, and stayed for the night, despite everything seeming particularly old-fashioned. The bed was hard, the place didn’t have a telephone, and there was no glass in the windows. Likely out of bemusement, they took a number of photographs.
When they went down to the dining room the next morning, they had a chance to see the hotel’s other customers. They too looked strangely out of place, dressed in outmoded clothing, two in old uniforms. Strangest of all was the bill for their stay — 19 francs, far less than they had anticipated.
All in all, it was a somewhat strange experience, but not unpleasant. They’d found a place to rest for the night, and continued on their way to Spain, where they presumably had a decent time. It wasn’t until they returned to France and looked for the hotel again that they knew something was truly amiss.
The hotel didn’t exist.
This wasn’t a matter of the hotel simply shutting down, or their being unable to find it again. It simply was not there. They even asked around in Montelimar, and no one had ever heard of it.
When they returned to England, the mystery deepened: Their photographs of the hotel were gone. Not only was there no proof that the hotel existed, but there was no proof that they’d ever been there at all.
Their odd tale was later featured on an episode of the television series Strange But True.
