John Titor was a time traveler from the year 2036 that showed up on various Internet message boards during 2000-2001. During this time he made many posts about the future of mankind.
Sometime in 2000, John Titor (pronounced TEETER) began posting on various message boards that he was a time traveler from the year 2036. Although it was dismissed by many at first, Titor stuck with his story and began to back up his claims with photos and rational reasoning.
His posts started out on a time travel message board where he posted information about time travel and some images of his time travel device. During this time he posted under the username TimeTravel_0. The name John Titor didn't come about until he was required to use his real name on the Art Bell Forums, which are no longer existent. Although most if not all of these original posts no longer remain on their original sites, they have since been copied to various other sites across the web.
John Titor also went on to describe how he had also been sent back to the year 1975 where his mission was to fix a 5100 IMB computer to prevent Y2K from happened. Apparently Y2K did happen in Titor's universe and that is what escalated the downfall of America.
In the years following there has been a division in people supporting his claims. Some people dismiss him as a total hoax and science-fiction, while others give credence to his arguments and find him fully legitimate. Whether he is real or not, one this for sure - his message was a bit chilling and fairly accurate to what is unfolding right in front of us.
John Titor had many things to say on time travel. He talked about the theoretical physics behind it, and also posted pictures of his time travel machine, along with the manual.
How Time Travel Works According To John Titor
According to John Titor, time travel is entirely possible. The way he explains time travel working is in conjunction with one of the laws of quantum mechanics. The law states that all possibly instances of an event are occurring infinitely. Titor claims that the Everett-Wheeler model of quantum physics, better known as the many worlds interpretation, is correct.
In one of his posts Titor explains:
...The grandfather paradox is impossible. In fact, all paradox is impossible. The Everett-Wheeler-Graham or multiple world theory is correct. All possible quantum states, events, possibilities and outcomes are real, eventual and occurring. The chances of everything happening someplace at sometime in the superverse is 100%.
Titor goes on to explain that each one of us has infinite instances of ourselves at the quantum level. We are infinite in all our decisions and choices and somewhere in another universe Titor says we are experiencing an infinite amount of possibilities. He says that each universe has its own independent time line that plays out based off the choices created by the people / consciousness on it. So if somebody were to travel back in time and meet them self as a child, they would change the future of this child on this new time line, and their original self on their current time line would continue on and play out its life.
John Titor's Time Travel Machine
One of Titor's earlier posts explained his time machine as having:
- Two magnetic housing units for the dual micro singularities
- An electron injection manifold to alter mass and gravity micro singularities
- A cooling and X-ray venting system
- Gravity sensors, or a variable gravity lock
- Four main caesium clocks
- Three main computer units
John Titor made many predictions that would occur in the coming years. These predictions were all based off actual events that happened during his life up until the year 2036.
American Civil War
It was predicted that there would be a civil war in America. He stated that in 2004 after the presidential elections there would be conflict with the order and the rights.
World War 3
With the uproot of an American civil war, Titor talks about how this later leads into a global world war in 2015. He states that:
In 2015, Russia launches a nuclear strike against the major cities in the United States (which is the "other side" of the civil war from my perspective), China and Europe. The United States counter attacks. The US cities are destroyed along with the AFE (American Federal Empire)...thus we (in the country) won. The European Union and China were also destroyed.
Mad Cow Disease
John Titor also mentions how Mad Cow Disease will become very bad. He says we have only seen the start of it and it will ultimately claim the lives of many. He also mentions the general low quality of the food that we eat. He claims that our food is one of the things that makes him the most nervous about living in this time period.
Titor also claims that the world will be de-populated heavily as a result of war and turmoil. He says that the United States population will be cut in 1/2.
Many skeptics say that most of the John Titor claims have either not come ture, are too broad or are completely off. For instance, he said civil war would break out after the 2004 elections but this never occurred.
People also point to Titor's prediction of CERN making strides in an understanding of time travel. He said this would happen in 2001, however no such case occurred. Despite the date being off, CERN is in fact opening their research up in 2008.
During the time that John Titor visited he stayed with his family in Florida. In this universe John Titor visited himself when he was only 2 years old. As of 2008, the John Titor of this world is about 10 years old now. Only time will tell what he has to say on the situation and how it plays out.
His family has currently moved and keeps a low profile and doesn't like to get involved with the story.
The Future, 2036
John Titor explains the future as a lot like 300 years ago. People live in small communities and with their family - he claims he couldn't imagine living away from his family.
Most transportation is done via foot, bicycles, horses and similar methods. He says they still have cars, but prefer the former methods.
They also still have the Internet and he says video sharing is very popular. People create their own shows and entertainment this way, rather than through a major media network.
Titor also talks about how their is no longer a central government or large corporations. These are all broken up and everything becomes much more localized again.
