5 Most Mysterious Unexplained Time Travelers5. JOHN TITOR
The first evidence of John Titor’s existence appeared on an online forum for the Time Travel Institute on November 2, 2000. Each post was accompanied by this symbol, which was later revealed to be a military designation from the future. Under the name TimeTravel 1_0, the individual introduced himself by describing the “six parts” of a working time machine including the use of dual micro singularities and an electron injection manifold to control their mass and gravity.
TimeTrave1_0’s name, John Titor, was not revealed until January 2001, when his posts began appearing on the Art Bell BBS Forums. He explained he was an American soldier from 2036 who was on a secret mission triggered by an impending technological apocalypse. These still undeciphered scans of the manual for his “C204 Time Displacement Unit” were offered as proof of his claims. According to Titor, he was on his way back to 1975 to retrieve an IBM 5100 machine needed to debug the UNIX 2038 error.
A coding limitation that could cause computers to fail on a scale beyond the worst predictions for the Y2K bug. Among Titor’s eerie predictions was CERN’s discovery of mini black holes in 2001 that were to become the basis for his travels. Although others, such as warning of a US Civil War after an election, appeared to be incorrect or part of an alternative future. Titor mentioned that the many-worlds theory of quantum mechanics had been validated, suggesting many timelines were possible. He also claimed that while still unsolved in the future, it was suspected that UFOs and aliens were more advanced time travelers. The John Titor posts ended in March 2001 without explanation, and his identity has neither been confirmed nor disproven.
4. PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT
Sometime in 1943, it is alleged that the US Navy destroyer escort USS Eldridge participated in Project Rainbow. A top-secret experiment to test new “cloaking” technology that would render the ship invisible to detection. Also known as the “Philadelphia Experiment,” the tests centered on Albert Einstein’s unified field theory and supposedly manipulated the forces of electromagnetism and gravity to make the USS Eldridge temporarily disappear. Details of the experiment’s shocking results were allegedly leaked by a sailor on the support ship SS Andrew Furuseth.
Using the alias “Carlos Miguel Allende”, Carl Meredith Allen claimed that the USS Eldridge momentarily vanished into thin air. It is speculated that a powerful magnetic field generator aboard the Eldridge bent not only radar and light as intended but also inadvertently warped gravity to create a dilation of time and sent the ship and crew back several seconds in the past. When the Eldridge reappeared, it is said that sailors ended up on different decks or were embedded in the ship’s metal hull. Rumors suggest that the Navy was never able to control or calibrate the phenomenon at the time to make it survivable… To this day, Navy officials maintain that no such experiment was ever conducted and that no such technology exists.
3. “BILLY” MEIER
Eduard Albert Meier is a Swiss citizen born in 1937 who claims to have first been visited by extraterrestrials in 1942. He alleges that his initial contact was with an elderly humanoid named, Sfath who was of a race known as the Plejaren. According to Meier, the Plejaren appear similar to humans and are from an Earth like world called Erra.
They are said to exist in an alternate dimension that is shifted a fraction of a second away from our own. Meier suggests that extraterrestrials are able to visit Earth by manipulating the flow of a time unit known as a chronon and he claims that two alternate timeline races, the Plejaren and the Timarians, have the ability to travel through time.
Meier himself has also claimed to time travel along claimed to time travel along Earth’s timeline and has presented a number of photos as evidence appearing to show UFOs in the present, prehistoric scenes in the past, and devastated scenes of Earth’s future. It is said that Meier has collected approximately 1,380 photos from his travels through space and time. Much of his work remains unverified, but he has attracted a devoted cult like following known as FIGU the Free Community of Interests for Fringe and Spiritual Sciences and Ufology that closely guards his secrets.
2. PROJECT PEGASUS
As a young child, Andrew Basiago claims that from 1968 to 1972 he participated in a DARPA project code-named Pegasus a program in which the US military supposedly perfected time travel technology based on secret research by Nikola Tesla. Over 100 children were allegedly recruited for the “chrononaut” program and chosen for their young and flexible brain placisity.
It was believed that they would be best equipped to survive the “mental strain of moving between past, present and future. According to Basiago, he and other children were information couriers who delivered future intelligence to US presidents and he claims that he accidentally appeared in this photo from Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address during of his trips.
Based on his experience, Basiago came to believe that not all of his time travel missions were in the same Earth timeline. An “alternative dimension” hypothesis of time travel that could explain his wildest claims of meeting aliens on Mars. Basiago has since made it his duty to expose the US government’s secret time travel program for the greater good of humanity and he is thought to be one of the two “planetary-level whistle blowers” predicted by the mysterious Web Bot Project.
1. VICTOR GODDARD
As an accidental time traveler, the simplicity of Sir Victor Goddard’s story perhaps makes it one of the most believable and it is enhanced by his high-ranking status as a British Air Marshall who was knighted for his outstanding service. In 1935, Goddard was allegedly piloting a Hawker Hart biplane when he encountered a storm over the abandoned Drem airfield. The turbulent and bizarre brown cloud was unlike any weather he had ever entered before and it sent him into a tailspin.
Barely recovering from an almost certain crash, Goddard suddenly found himself back over the abandoned airfield except it appeared to him to be fully operational with yellow monoplanes and RAF engineers in brown, not blue overalls. At the time, Goddard could not make sense of what he saw, and his friends could barely believe him when he described the scene. No such planes existed in the RAF in 1935 and the uniform colors that he saw were not worn by any RAF mechanics. It would not be until the start of World War II in 1939 that Goddard realized he may have experienced a slip in time when the Drem airfield was reopened for war, the yellow Magister fighter was built, and RAF overalls were changed to brown.
