People have long since had a great interest in the possibilities of time travel. The ability to travel back and forward through time fascinates most of us.
While science still struggles to conclude whether time travel is even possible there are plenty of Hollywood movies that touch on the subject of time travel. Not only that there are plenty of people who claim that they have actually had peculiar real life time travel experiences of their own.
Here are 6 Real Life Time Travel Stories.
Cell Phone at a Charlie Chaplin Premier
An Irish film maker was watching the DVD extras for The Circus, a 1928 Charlie Chaplin film. One part of the DVD extras showed the premier of the movie and people queuing outside of Mann’s Chinese Theatre
It is during this scene that a woman walks past the camera holding her hand to her ear and moving her lips. It has been suggested that the woman may be holding a hearing aid or a block of ice to her face to take away dental pain. Most people who see the clip believe that the woman appears to be talking on a mobile cell phone which in turn prompts the possibility that she may actually be from the future. After all cell phones did not begin to appear until the 1980’s.
Is it possible that the woman captured in the video a real life time traveller from the future? Check out the video below and decide for yourself.
Flight into the Future
In 1935, Air Marshal Sir Victor Goddard of the British Royal Air Force was a Wing Commander. It was during 1935 that Goddard had a rather unsettling experience when he was flying his Hawker Hart biplane.
While on a flight from Edinburgh, Scotland to his home base in Andover, England Goddard decided to fly a route which took him over an abandoned airfield located at Drem which is not far from where he took off.
Since the airfield was abandoned it was overgrown with foliage and the hangers were falling apart. Goddard also noted that cows were grazing where aeroplanes would once have been parked.
Once he had flown over the airfield Goddard continued his flight path to Andover but found he encountering a weird storm which he described as having high winds and strange brown and yellow clouds. As he tried to avoid the unusual storm he lost control of his biplane and it began to spiral towards the ground. Luckily for Goddard he was able to regain control and narrowly avoided crashing into the ground.
Once he had his biplane stable in the sky once more Goddard found that he was heading back towards Drem only this time as he approached he noticed that the storm seemed to disappear and when he flew over the airfield it looked completely different. The hangers which had been falling apart looked new and there were four airplanes parked where the cows had been grazing. Three of the four airplanes were biplanes (painted an unfamiliar yellow) and the forth was a monoplane. It is worth noting that the RAF had no monoplanes in 1935.
Goddard also noticed that several mechanics were on the ground near to the hangers but dressed in blue overalls rather than the brown overalls that RAF mechanics of the time wore. Amazingly not one of the mechanics seemed to notice him flying over the airfield despite several passes of the airfield been made.
As Goddard left the area he once again encountered the strange storm only this time he managed to avoid it and make his way successfully to Andover.
The RAF did not begin to paint their planes yellow or use monoplanes until 1939. It was in the same year that RAF mechanics began to wear blue uniforms. Is it possible that Goddard somehow managed to fly four year into the future and then be returned to 1935? Is it possible that freak weather phenomena have the ability to jump across time?
Caught in a Temporal Vortex
Dr Raul Rios Centeno was a medical doctor who also enjoyed investigating the paranormal. He recounted to author Scott Corrales a story which had been told him to by one of his patients. This particular patient was a 30 year old woman who had come to him suffering from a serious case of hemiplegia (a total paralysis of one side of the body).
“I was at a campground in the vicinity of Markahuasi,” she told him. Markahuasi is the famous stone forest located about 35 miles east of Lima, Peru. “I went out exploring late at night with some friends. Oddly enough, we heard the strains of music and noticed a small torch-lit stone cabin. I was able to see people dancing inside, but upon getting closer I felt a sudden sensation of cold which I paid little attention to, and I stuck my head through an open door. It was then that I saw the occupants were clad in 17th century fashion. I tried to enter the room, but one of my girlfriends pulled me out.”
The woman claimed that it was the very moment she was pulled out that half of her body became paralyzed. Is it possible that the woman had half of her body into a stone cabin which was some kind of temporal vortex or even a dimensional doorway? Is this the reason why only half of the woman’s body became paralysed?
Dr Centeno also reported the following – “an EEG was able to show that the left hemisphere of the brain did not show signs of normal functioning, as well as an abnormal amount of electric waves.”
Highway to the Past
This story of possible time travel took place in October, 1969. A man who was identified only as L.C. and his business associate, Charlie found themselves driving from Abbeville, Louisiana toward Lafayette on Highway 167.
As the business associates drove alone the nearly empty rode, they overtook what appeared to be an antique car travelling very slowly. Both L.C. and Charlie were impressed by the mint condition of the car which would have been nearly 30 years old. The car actually looked to be in nearly new condition.
So impressed by the condition of the car the pair approached it slowing down to take a better look. They first became confused by the bright orange license plate which was stamped only “1940” but assumed it must have been part of some kind of antique auto show. As they overtook the vintage vehicle they noticed it was been driven by a woman dressed in vintage 1940’s clothing and the children next to her were dressed in similar fashions. The woman seemed very panicked and confused.
L.C. shouted at the woman asking if she needed any help and through her rolled up her window she indicated “yes”. L.C. motioned for her to pull over at the side of the road. L.C. and Charlie pulled ahead of the vintage vehicle and turned onto the edge of the road. When they got out and looked behind for the vintage vehicle it had vanished without a trace.
The road had no turn offs and was straight enough to see miles back down where they had come from so it was impossible for the vintage vehicle to have turned off at any other point.
As the two businessmen stood confused at the side of the road another car pulled up. The driver of the car claimed that he had seen both the vintage vehicle and the car of the businessmen but when the businessmen had pulled up at the side of the road the vintage car just vanished into thin air.
The Future Roadhouse.
On a night sometime during 1972, four coeds from the Southern Utah University were driving from Pioche, Nevada to their dorm Cedar City. It was around 10pm when the girls were travelling along highway 56, which is rumoured to be haunted.
Shortly after taking a folk in the road which headed north the girls were surprised to see the end of the black asphalt of the road followed by 100 meters of white cement then an abrupt end at the top of a cliff. The girls turned the car around and tried to find their way back to the highway but it quickly became apparent that the landscape was not familiar and they were indeed lost. The red canyon walls that had once surrounded them gave way to open grain fields and pine trees, which they had never encountered before in that particular area of the state.
Convinced they were totally lost the girls took a little comfort when they approached what they described as a roadhouse or tavern. The girls pulled up into the car park, rolled down the window and tried to ask for directions from a few men who were coming out of the building.
Before the girls could ask for directions one of them let out a scream and ordered the girl who was driving to get out of there as fast as she could. The girls sped off as quickly as the car could take them but quickly realised that the men were chasing them in strange, tri-wheeled, egg-shaped vehicles.
Travelling close to 100mph the girls seemed to lose their pursuers as they found their way back to the familiar scenery of the canyons and back on to the desert highway.
The reason for the scream, according to the girl who got a good look at the men was because they were not human.
When the girls made a report to the police and investigations were made it was noted y police that the car driven by the girls had made tracks along the highway which vanished for two miles before reappearing. Is it possible, like some locals of the area claim, that highway 56 is a portal to another time and dimension?
Hotel Time Warp
In 1979 two British couples were vacationing in the north of France. While driving along, looking for a place to stay overnight they were struck by some signs that appeared to be advertising a very old-fashioned circus.
When the two couples finally came across a building with a sign which read “hotel” they were rather relieved as they had been on the road all day and very tired. Inside the hotel they discovered that almost everything was made of very heavy wood and there seemed to be no evidence of modern luxuries or conveniences such as televisions or telephones. None of the rooms had locks, but simple wooden latches and the windows had wooden shutters rather than glass.
When the morning finally came and the two couples sat down to eat breakfast, two gendarmes entered wearing old fashioned caped uniforms. The couples asked for and received very poor directions to Avignon from the gendarmes paid the bill of 19 francs and left.
After spending two weeks in Spain, the couples made a return trip through France with the intention of staying the night at the old fashioned hotel. On the return trip, however, the hotel could not be found.
Both couples were certain that they were in the correct area and spot (especially since they saw the old fashioned circus poster) but the hotel had completely vanished without a trace.
The photos which had been taken at the hotel would not develop and after a little research it was revealed that French gendarmes wore uniforms of that description prior to 1905.
