Fact or Fiction: Time traveler to the future comes back with a photo!


The subject of time travel has fascinated everyone from HG Wells to Albert Einstein. Is this a construct of science fiction or is there actually a top-secret government program working on it now? Cue the DeLorean.

“If time travel is possible, where are the tourists from the future?” ― Stephen HawkingA Brief History of Time

E = MC2 or Something Like That?

Who hasn’t thought of time travelling at some point in their lives? HG Wells wrote a very famous story based on the subject matter called the Time Machine. Movies have been made exploring the topic including Time After Time, Somewhere in Time and the list goes on and on.

Even scientists have been trying to understand if it is possible. Einstein’s Theory of Relativity is the most well-known construct dealing with this topic. To move forward in time might be feasible but going backward is tricky because according to NASA’s Space Place, “In all time travel theories allowed by real science, there is no way a traveler can go back in time to before the time machine was built.”

Now that we cleared up that conundrum, how could we go into the future? It has to take more than a DeLorean revving its engine and accelerating to 88 m.p.h. Some scientists are looking at wormholes as short cuts to get from Point A to Point B.

Real Life Applications

Actually, they have been performing space-time experiments at the International Space Station to test Einstein’s theory. NASA’s Space Place references the Primary Atomic Reference Clock in Space or PARCS.

“If Einstein’s theory is correct, a clock aboard the Space Station should tick faster than a clock on the surface of the Earth by about 1 second in every 10,000 years. It will take a very accurate clock to measure this tiny change!”

It sounds like this concept’s development is in its infancy. We are just trying to wrap our collective scientific minds around the idea of venturing into other periods of time.

Well, the Express in the UK has found a renegade from a secret government program who has ventured in to the year 6000 and has decided to speak about his experience.

I, Robot

Recently, a man who preferred not to reveal his identity for fear of repercussions has spoken out about his involvement in a secret government program time travelling to the future. He goes on to say in an article from the Express in the UK, that this technology started to be developed in the 90s in earnest and that in 2028, the public will know all about it.

Apparently, we will be ruled by an artificial intelligence that will be a benevolent force of good. There will not be any conflicts because the AI will factor emotion out of its decision-making process thus reducing the margin of error for mistakes.

The mystery gentleman also managed to take a picture of a city in the future. You can’t really see it well because of the distortion but according to him this is what happens during time travel. Personally, it looks like a screenshot from a science fiction movie that has been blurred from excess camera movement but that is just my opinion.

The Cloud of Immortality

Another interesting or frightening thing depending on how you look at it, in the year 6000, we will all be uploading our brains to a server. That way, the idea of being immortal will truly be reality. Wait a minute.

I have heard this before. Doctor Who when Peter Capaldi was on it, featured an episode about life in the matrix. Then of course, the concept of the Matrix not to mention Transcendence with Johnny Depp and the X-Files from this current season. That was the fate that befell Langly and his girlfriend trapping them in another dimension.

Now, in this guy’s defense, I have heard of this being experimented with at the Montauk Project. However, his explanations for the vast utopia of the future were very vague and he never did describe anything.

Decide for Yourselves

I have enclosed Apex TV’s interview of this time travelling maverick.

Now it is up to you to decide whether or not this is fact or fiction.  In the words of Fox Mulder, “I want to believe.”
