Time travel, does it exist? Can we travel through time? Scientists say yes we can on a sub-atomic level. If you travel at light speed. Time travel and time slips are some of my favorite topics. This week I will tell you about a few stories I have come across.

People Claimed to Be Real-Life Time Travelers

1) Charlotte Anne Moberly and Eleanor Jourdain

In 1911, Charlotte Anne Moberly and Eleanor Jourdain, who met just prior to working together at the all-female St. Hugh’s College in Oxford and shared an interest in spiritualism, released a book that caused a sensation. An Adventure detailed an experience they’d shared while visiting the Palace of Versailles in 1901. While wandering the extensive gardens around the Petit Trianon, they suddenly began encountering people dressed in 18th-century outfits, including a women who strongly resembled Marie Antoinette. Had they encountered ghosts—or slipped back in time somehow? Though they went with the latter for their book, which purported to “prove” their experience by researching and corroborating what they’d seen with historical records, skeptics tended to believe a third option: That the authors of the book (written under pseudonyms; their true identities were revealed after their deaths) had made the whole thing up. Still, their reputations as respected academics did make other people wonder if maybe they had witnessed something way out of the ordinary.

 

2) John Titor

This story has its origins with oddball late-night radio host Art Bell—which should be an immediate red flag—and expanded to include internet message boards circa the late 1990s and early 2000s. It was never clear if the man who made contact with Bell (via fax) was the same as the man who later took to the internet and built a cult following. You can read more about Titor’s story in the feature below, but the basics are: Titor first popped up in 1998, claiming he was from a parallel timeline where time travel was invented in 2034 by General Electric. In 2001, he explained his mission was to collect a vintage computer from 1975, needing it to debug computers back in 2036. His “predictions” about the future mostly failed to come true (like the second American Civil War, circa 2013), and sleuthing around the Titor phenomenon turned up at least one person (not a time traveler) who seemed the likely source of the hoax. But no amount of debunking can take away the weird and amazing details of this story; it’s one of the earliest instances of internet folklore, and still one of its most fascinating.

 

4) Andrew Carlssin

It’s true that “Andrew Carlssin” may not have actually ever existed, but he dwelled in the imaginations of real people for a brief moment after an article from the (reliably amusing) Weekly World News accidentally went mainstream. Snopes.com has a reprint of the original article, which read in part:

    Federal investigators have arrested an enigmatic Wall Street wiz on insider-trading charges — and incredibly, he claims to be a time-traveler from the year 2256!

    Sources at the Security and Exchange Commission confirm that 44-year-old Andrew Carlssin offered the bizarre explanation for his uncanny success in the stock market after being led off in handcuffs on January 28.

Though actual SEC representatives were quick to point out the entire story was, ah, complete and total balderdash, it caught on because it made a certain kind of freaky sense. See, John Titor had a high-concept reason for traveling back in time to get that vintage computer... but Carlssin? He was just capitalizing on what he knew about the future to play the stock market and get filthy rich, just like Back to the Future’s Biff Tannen and his sports scores. Snopes notes that the Weekly World News published a follow-up a month later, reporting that Carlssin had jumped bail, never to be seen again, either in the paper or in reality.

5) “Noah”

Late last year, several British tabloids gleefully reported on “Noah,” a man who claimed to be from the future, having arrived in our time using technology that was invented in 2003 but not declassified until 2028. A YouTube video on the Paranoid Elite channel—where you can view a variety of other “time-traveler” videos (though Noah’s is the most popular by far) as well as exposés on mermaids, aliens, and other mysteries of the unknown—was Noah’s chosen platform. His revelations were mostly pretty boring (the return of a better Google Glass! Self-driving cars are totally a thing! Trump will be re-elected!), but there’s something decidedly unsettling about his blurred-out performance
