  • (speaking backwards)

  • - The concept of time travel

  • is something that has always fascinated people.

  • The idea of going back in time to witness an event,

  • or, more controversially, to change an event,

  • has intrigued us, especially through its representation

  • in popular culture and entertainment.

  • Even science has suggested

  • that time travel is theoretically possible,

  • but what if I told you that there

  • are some events that have occurred

  • that suggest that it may have already happened?

  • The following documented events

  • show what some believe to be evidence of time travel,

  • from people who were caught on camera with futuristic tech

  • to occurrences of impossible foresight,

  • these are 10 pieces of evidence that time travel may exist.

  • Number one is the Charlie Chaplin time traveler.

  • In 1928, Charlie Chaplin's film The Circus

  • premiered at Grauman's Chinese Theatre

  • in Hollywood, California.

  • The event was, of course, filmed

  • and, decades later, was featured as bonus material

  • on the DVD version of the movie.

  • However, the sharp eyes of some

  • noticed something very odd in one clip from the movie.

  • In a crowd of people outside the theater,

  • there's a woman in the background

  • who appears to be holding

  • what looks like a mobile phone up to her ear.

  • Now, keep in mind that the mobile phone

  • was not invented until 1973.

  • Some people have developed a simple solution,

  • that clearly this was an old-fashioned hearing aid.

  • However, theorists argue that if that were so,

  • why would she be using it in a noisy crowd of people?

  • Instead, they offer a different explanation,

  • that she might actually be a time traveler

  • attempting to see the famous Charlie Chaplin in person.

  • Despite all of the scrutiny over this clip online,

  • the woman's identity was never discovered.

  • Number two is stock trading from the future.

  • In 2003, a man named Andrew Carlssin

  • seemed to come out of nowhere

  • to make a series of extremely high risk stock trades.

  • After executing a total of 120 trades,

  • he netted $350 million,

  • an unprecedented amount

  • for even the most seasoned stock trader,

  • especially in such a short amount of time.

  • People began to find to about this

  • and were absolutely baffled as to how he did it.

  • So much so that people actually began attributing it

  • to insider trading.

  • This drew a lot of attention,

  • and the police actually ended up arresting Carlssin

  • on that assumption.

  • However, Carlssin denied the accusation,

  • instead offering what he adamantly claimed to be the truth:

  • that he was from the future.

  • Openly admitting to be a time traveler from the year 2256

  • seemed to be a cheap cop-out,

  • or, for that matter, an insane one,

  • but given his lack of experience in trading

  • and the lack of apparent information available to him,

  • it didn't make sense that he would be able

  • to make such trades.

  • People to this day are still baffled as to how he did this,

  • which has led many to believe that he was,

  • in fact, from the future.

  • Number three is the time traveling air marshal.

  • Sir Robert Victor Goddard was a respected air marshal

  • in the Royal Air Force in 1935.

  • Considered a highly intelligent and trustworthy man,

  • it came as a shock to many when he openly claimed

  • that he had accidentally traveled through time.

  • While flying his plain near Edinburgh, Scotland,

  • Goddard was caught in a rain storm that he claims

  • suddenly changed to sunlight.

  • The air strip that he had taken off from

  • changed from being run down to what he described

  • as a fully functioning air field

  • with men in blue uniforms working on yellow planes.

  • He claims that the rain suddenly returned

  • and he then arrived back at the base,

  • where he was laughed at upon telling his story to his peers.

  • Now, this story sounded like the ramblings

  • of a confused man to many for years.

  • That was, until just four years later,

  • when that same air field was fully restored,

  • complete with yellow planes

  • and men working in blue uniforms.

  • Number four is the tiny Swiss watch in an ancient tomb.

  • In December of 2008, the 400-year-old tomb of Si Qing

  • was discovered in the Shangsi county of China.

  • However, upon inspecting the outside of the coffin,

  • archaeologists discovered something very odd.

  • Encased in centuries-old dirt

  • was a tiny piece of golden metal

  • that was in the shape of what appeared to be a wristwatch.

  • Engraved on the back of the timepiece was the word Swiss

  • with the time frozen at 10:06.

  • How is it possible that a tomb sealed for 400 years,

  • dating all the way back to the Ming dynasty,

  • had come to hold an artifact

  • that could have only been created

  • after the establishment of present-day Switzerland?

  • Perhaps out of fear, or sheer skepticism,

  • some have called this out as a hoax

  • or, for that matter, Photoshop.

  • However, those who believe state that this is proof

  • that time travel exists.

  • Number five is the modern man.

  • In the early 1940s, the South Forks Bridge

  • reopened in Gold Bridge, British Columbia.

  • Many photos were taken of the event to help commemorate it.

  • However, one photo stood out from the rest,

  • one that has been scrutinized for decades.

  • This photo appeared on the

  • Virtual Museum of Canada's website

  • and quickly made its way to a number of

  • time travel and conspiracy theorist websites.

  • It depicts a man in a T-shirt with a printed logo on it

  • as well as sunglasses, neither of which existed at the time,

  • making it impossible for them to exist in the 1940s.

  • But in addition, what's even more shocking,

  • is that if you look closely,

  • the man appears to be holding a modern-day DSLR camera.

  • Now, while researchers claim that he's simply

  • wearing a sweater with an emblem sewn on it

  • as well as, perhaps, custom-made sunglasses,

  • the appearance of the camera in his hand

  • remains a baffling mystery to all.

  • Number six is a cell phone in 1938.

  • In 2013, a black and white video from 1938 surfaced

  • of a group of women walking away from a building

  • that they had just exited.

  • The video was posted on YouTube

  • after the uploader noticed something very peculiar

  • with one of the clips.

  • One of the girls appears to be on a cell phone.

  • Again, the first cell phone call

  • did not occur until April 3rd, 1973,

  • so this technology simply just did not exist at the time.

  • While a few explanations have been given since the upload,

  • recently, an individual has come forward

  • claiming that the woman in the clip is, in fact,

  • their great-grandmother and that this is a cell phone,

  • but it's a pre-war prototype

  • developed by a communications factory.

  • The problem with this explanation, however,

  • is that the phone appears to be far too small for the time,

  • as even the very first cell phone that was ever created

  • was absolutely massive.

  • Theorists claim that this recent explanation is nonsense,

  • further proving some sort of a cover-up.

  • Number seven is the Philadelphia Experiment.

  • On October 28th, 1943, the United States naval military

  • performed an operation called the Philadelphia Experiment,

  • which many believe, to this day,

  • is the first time that time travel was performed

  • under controlled conditions.

  • The purpose of this venture

  • was to make the USS Eldridge completely invisible to radar,

  • effectively cloaking it by merging the fields

  • of electromagnetism and gravity into one field.

  • However, upon executing the experiment,

  • people claimed that the ship

  • vanished from sight in an instant,

  • only to reappear from its time warp

  • with an entire crew missing.

  • Upon coming out, this story was immediately denied

  • by the US Navy, claiming that it never happened,

  • establishing it as a hoax.

  • However, theorists claim that this,

  • also known as Project Rainbow, did in fact happen

  • and that this is just another conspiracy

  • swept under the rug by the US government.

  • Number eight is the Montauk Experiment.

  • The Philadelphia Experiment was not the only time

  • the United States government has been accused

  • of covering up time travel operations.

  • The Montauk Experiment originated

  • with the account of a man named Preston Nichols,

  • who claimed to have recovered repressed memories

  • of his own involvement in the program.

  • The program was created with the purpose

  • of exotic research in fields such as time travel,

  • teleportation, mind control, and contact with alien life.

  • It's believe that following the developments

  • of the successful 1943 Philadelphia Experiment,

  • the government began to research other fields

  • in addition to time travel, all under this program.

  • Interestingly, the Netflix series Stranger Things

  • was allegedly inspired by the Montauk Project,

  • and at one time, Montauk being used as its working title.

  • But, of course,

  • despite the popular belief that this occurred,

  • the government denies it entirely.

  • Number nine is the Large Hadron Collider

  • The Large Hadron Collider's existence is fact,

  • which sits nearly 175 meters beneath Switzerland,

  • but it's on this list for a different reason than the rest.

  • It is the largest and most complex machine ever built

  • with the purpose to allow physicists

  • to test different predictions.

  • In particular, to test the different theories

  • of particle physics, high energy physics,

  • and to answer the unsolved questions of physics

  • with the aim of advancing human understanding

  • of physical laws.

  • But there is talk that scientists

  • have discovered something else, the Higgs singlet,

  • a particle capable of bouncing around through time.

  • If that name sounds familiar to you,

  • it's because it's related to the Higgs boson,

  • also known as the God particle,

  • which has already been discovered

  • and can only be created using this machine.

  • Academics have already began theorizing

  • that this could be the one true beginning stage

  • of time travel.

  • Number 10 is the time traveling boxing fan.

  • A clip from a Mike Tyson 1995 boxing match

  • has become one of the most controversial clips

  • on the Internet.

  • This clip appears to show a spectator

  • standing in the front row

  • using a smartphone to record Mike Tyson

  • battling it out with Peter McNeeley in the ring.

  • The object looks just like a cell phone,

  • which would make perfect sense

  • if it weren't for the fact

  • that the first cell phone cameras

  • were not sold until 2000.

  • Now, some claim that this is simply

  • an early digital camera.

  • However, theorists state a valid point

  • when it comes to the device.

  • If you look closely, the device is vertical,

  • and as we all know,

  • digital photos are almost always taken horizontally,

  • and the vertical photo is almost exclusive

  • to the mobile phone.

  • People have compared this camera

  • to multiple early cameras at the time,

  • but still, no one can offer a definitive explanation

  • for this clip, and it continues to baffle

  • all of those who see it.

  • So, those were 10 pieces of evidence

  • that time travel may actually exist.

  • As per usual, I want to know from you guys in the comments,

  • what do you think of these clips?

  • Are any of them valid,

  • or do you think most of them are hoaxes?
