In , the John Titor Foundation published a book, John Titor: A Time Traveler's Tale (ISBN ), discussing his claims; the book is now. download a cheap copy of John Titor A Time Traveler's Tale book by John Titor Foundation. Perhaps one of the most amazing tales ever told, there is still debate .
The gravity field also traps a small air pocket around the car that acts as your only O2 supply unless you bring compressed air with you. This pocket will only last for a short period and a carbon sensor tells us when it's too dangerous. You do hear a slight hum as the unit operates and when the power changes or the unit turns off.
There is a great deal of electrical crackling noise from static electricity. What are your memories of ? I remember very clearly. It is difficult to describe in detail without spending a great deal of time explaining why things are so different.
In , I live in central Florida with my family and I'm currently stationed at an Army base in Tampa. A world war in killed nearly three billion people.
The people that survived grew closer together. Life is centered on the family and then the community. I cannot imagine living even a few hundred miles away from my parents. There is no large industrial complex creating masses of useless food and recreational items. Food and livestock is grown and sold locally.
People spend much more time reading and talking together face to face. Religion is taken seriously and everyone can multiple and divide in the heads. Will you show us more of the operations manual for your time machine? I will consider it but I do not expect they are worth anything to most people except as a curiosity. If you met yourself on another worldline, what would happen?
It has always surprised me why that concept is so hard for people to imagine and accept. Nothing would happen. The universe would not end and there are no paradox problems that threaten existence. Temporal space-time is made up of every possible quantum state. The Everett Wheeler model is correct. The first was a training mission and the second is now.
I was born in so the other "me" is 2 on this worldline. There is a saying where I come from, "Every possible thing that can happen or will happen has already happened somewhere". How is our worldline different from this yours? For starters, the fact that I'm here makes it different. I've also noticed little things like news events that happen at different times, football games won by other teams, things like that. I would guess the temporal divergence between this worldline and my original is about 1 or 2 percent.
Of course, the longer I am here, the larger that divergence becomes from my point of view. What type of vehicle is in the picture you posted? It's a Chevrolet. Does your machine allow you to control time travel? Yes, it can be controlled. However, the distortion unit has operational limits.
Imagine your path through time is through a cone. The farther away from the center of the cone, the more differences you will see in the worldline. The C begins to "break away" at about 60 years. This means the level of confidence drops rapidly after 60 years of travel and the worldline divergence increases.
In other words, if I wanted to go back years and meet Christ, there is a better than average chance I would end up on a worldline where he was never born. The computer units and gravity sensors "record" your trip and you are quite easily able to return to your point of origin. I am aware that research is being done on faster units with more accurate clocks. I imagine that they will be able to go back farther with a higher degree of divergence confidence.
Are you drawn back to your worldline of origin for any reason? Is instability a problem for you? I'm not sure what you mean by stable. If you mean mentally, there are many things that bother me here but being with my parents right now is important to me.
Physically, the only thing really wrong is the number of colds I get. Are you able to return to your home? Is radiation a problem? I'm not sure what radiation you mean. If you mean from the unit, it vents X-rays and Gamma radiation out of the rear.
As long as you stay away from that, you should be okay. I keep a radiation detector with me to check my environment and make sure the unit isn't "leaking".

What does the light look like when you time travel? The light bending only lasts a second. Its like driving under a tunnel and being in total black. Do people know where you are? Can you communicate with your home? They do not know where I am and I cannot communicate with them. Interesting idea though. From their point of view, I will return almost exactly at the same moment I left.
From their viewpoint, I will only have aged more than expected. Is there anything to add about what time travel looks like? While the machine is on, everything is black. When the machine is turned off, it is the reverse affect. It appears you are driving out from a bridge.
To tell you the truth, I'm usually sleeping when the unit turns off but yes, it does appear that the world fades in from black. What's the largest technical problem when traveling in time? The hard part of traveling through time is not the bending of gravity but the plotting of your course and holding to the basic "position" in your environment. This is done through a system called VGL variable gravity lock. Basically, the unit takes a reading of the local gravity and samples it during the "trip" in pulses.
If the gravity is too far off, the unit stops or reverses itself to the last sample period where the readings were correct. If there is some sort of failure, the unit shuts down and drops out to where ever you may be. Are there any physical effects from the machine? The only real physical trace is a large chunk of ground missing from the point of origin and a large pile of dirt at the destination.
The gravity field surrounds a small portion of the earth under you and takes it along for the ride. There is really no way around this. Perhaps it's a bit easier to understand why time travelers do not revel themselves. Yes, you can travel forward in time. No, you do not need an "invite" from the future.
I first saw the car in The idea was to find a vehicle that would not draw too much attention for the time period. Unfortunately, there were not very many suitable vehicles around in and I sold the car when I arrived in You do not rewrite history.
I can only affect what happens here just as easily as you can. Why do people in this time period worry so much about time traveler's destroying their worldline when they have no problem doing it themselves every day? My goal is not to be believed. Most people do not take news of the war very well but I find that everyone believes it's inevitable.
The Time Travel Tale of John Titor
Even in your own history, are not great inventions and discoveries made during a time of war in your effort to kill and maim in new and more efficient ways? No, I do not work for GE or any other company. Are "stock tips" really the first thing you want to know about in the future? As a representative of your time period, do you realize what that says about you?
You should probably know that this time is not remembered for its selflessness, charity or ability to work together. Why would I want to talk to you? Why don't you believe you have something interesting or worthwhile to say to someone in the future? November 06, No, the ice caps are not melting any faster than they are now. There is also far less smog and industrial waste in November 06, You asked about the North Polar ice pack.
I never said the environment wasn't a problem. Doesn't water expand when it freezes?
If the polar ice cap melted, wouldn't sea level go down? I don't know if there's enough ice for this to make a difference and I'm not an expert on global warming. November 06, , Yes, I realize people become hostile.
I don't expect anyone to believe me and I have nothing to sell. I take no offense by it. Just out of curiosity, if you were a time traveler, what do you think it would take to get people to believe you? I suppose we could agree that no particular era in history is famous for its development of humanity but just once I would like to hear questions like, "What is family life like in the future?
How does society deal with poverty? Is AIDS, abortion and drug use still a problem? The money you make would dilute the intelligence and forethought that a smart person had in picking the stock all by themselves. If I told you how to get rich, I would be taking money from them and giving it to you. Getting back to my "proper" universe is tricky but possible. Yes, another jump would take me to a different family. When traveling to other worldlines there is a system of clocks and gravity sensors in the machine that sample the environment before dropping out.
It's called VGL, variable gravity lock. If a cement block were there, the machine would "backtrack" until it sensed relative congruity to the original gravity sample. A great deal of time and effort goes into picking just the right spot since you cannot physically move during a displacement. November 06, Please keep in mind a couple of points as I answer your questions.
First, I am not a physicist.
Most airline pilots are probably not aerospace engineers. Second, let me give you an example of the position we are in.
Imagine you live in the year and a "time traveler" attempts to explain how a jet engine works. Even though the invention of the airplane is only a decade in the future, he would have to find some frame of reference to explain the basics of flight.
Then, he would have to outline the mechanics of how the engine works. As amazing as it would sound, the jet would be invented about thirty years later. Time travel is achieved by altering gravity. This concept is already proven by atomic clock experiments. The closer an observer is to a gravity source high mass , the slower time passes for them. However, this type of gravity manipulation is not sufficient to alter your worldline.
The basic math to alter worldlines exists right now. Tipler first described a working "time machine" through his theory of massive rotating spheres.
I apologize for the web site but it was the only one I could find quickly. Certain types of black holes also exhibit the "time travel" abilities of Tipler cylinders. Kerr was one of the first to describe the dual event horizons of a rotating black hole. As with Tipler's cylinders, it was possible to travel on a "time- like" trip through a Kerr black hole and end up in a different worldline without being squished by the gravity of the singularity.
The mass and gravitational field of a microsingularity can then be manipulated by "injecting" electrons onto its surface. By rotating two electric microsigularities at high speed, it is possible to create and modify a local gravity sinusoid that replicates the affects of a Kerr black hole.
For those asking how come a microsingularity doesn't swallow the Earth or want to know details about the size, stability, mass, temperature and resulting Hawking radiation from such a thing, those details I must keep to myself. Yes, you can travel into the future and it takes less energy than going into the past. The computer system is connected to the unit through an electrical bus.
There are actually three computers linked together that take the same signals from the gravity sensors and clocks. They use a Borda error correcting protocol that checks the integrity of the data and trips the VGL system. I am not aware of any physical change to my DNA or "aura". I do however seem to be more susceptible to colds. Yes, you will remember me if you want to.
Worldlines do not change that way and I will only become an insignificant part of your history.
November 07, I would equate the "future" GE distortion units to their current jet engines. The first one worked great but they can always make it better. The C unit uses 4 cesium clocks. The C uses 6 cesium clocks but they use an optical system to check the oscillation frequency.
This makes the worldline divergence confidence much higher. There are some differences you may be interested in. Religion is a major part of people's life in Pain and change tend to bring people together and closer to God.
However, religion is far more personal than it is now. There are no huge, centralized religions and people talk openly about their beliefs. It might also interest you to know that the day of worship is Saturday, the day God meant to be the Sabbath and the 10 commandments have been restored to the "10" that God gave us. Life is much more rural in the future but "high" technology is used to communicate and travel. People raise a great deal of their own food and do more "farm" work.
Yes, compared to now, we do work long hours. After the war, my father made a living selling oranges up and down the West coast of Florida. My closest friend raises horses and another works for a company that maintains "wireless" Internet nodes. Life has changed so much over my lifetime that it's hard to pin down a "normal" day.
When I was 13, I was a soldier. As a teenager, I helped my dad haul cargo. I went to college when I was 31 and I was recruited to "time travel" shortly after that. Again, I suppose an average day in is like an average day on the farm.
Yes, there is a post office. The Internet is still alive and well in the future. People spend more time talking because life is more centered on the community. I've noticed the same type of effect here when the power goes off. People tend to come out of their homes and actually spend time with their neighbors. There is a lot more personal trust and less paranoia. When I'm with my parents, I live in a community made up of "tree houses" on a large river in Florida.
The river floods sometimes and we have access to the Gulf. Most of our neighbors make a living off the sea or in moving cargo by boat. There is a civil war in the United States that starts in That conflict flares up and down for 10 years. In , 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 European Union and China were also destroyed.
No new information there on UFOs and aliens. I find that an interesting subject myself. Personally, I think "UFOs" might be time travelers with very sophisticated distortion units. But that might be a bit wacky. One of the biggest reasons why food production is localized is because the environment is affected with disease and radiation.
We are making huge strides in getting it cleaned up.
John Titor A Time Traveler's Tale
Water is produced on a community level and we do eat meat that we raise ourselves. Yes, genetic engineering is used but it's like any other technology. It can be good and bad. One thing we did not do was create more hybrid seeds. What are people thinking? I do not believe faith alone is enough to get us back to God. I'm not sure what happens when we die but I'm pretty sure it's not a walk in the park.
We are working on it space travel. What future technologies can we look forward to? I hesitate to answer but I'll give a bit. Hydrogen fuel cells and more efficient solar cells are big deals. Computer technology and software get MUCH better.
My greatest joy is sailing. For fun, I enjoy swimming, playing cards, reading, playing games on the net and talking with people who live in other countries. As a community, we celebrate much more and have bon fires and dances. My hobby is sorting through old magazines and videos of life before the war. After the war, early new communities gathered around the current Universities. That's where the libraries were. Not too much is different except the military is large part of people's life and we spend a great deal of time in the fields and farms at the "University" or Fort.
Most of my memories growing up are not fond. Life was very hard. Simple things make me happy like hugging my mother and father. Yes, we have cameras. More digital. Film is used like painting is today. No hologram camera though. Yes we have phones but the service is through the web.
Most power generation is localized.
It amazes me how much power is wasted now. Yes, solar is big. There is thought that a singularity generator could also be used but most people are against it.
The elderly are highly revered and looked after on a community level. So are orphans. There is always something people can do now matter what. The idea of avoiding work is looked down on. Hats are more common in the future and flashy colors are less common. Dress is much more functional and we "dress up" whenever we get a chance. I have noticed that no one in this time dresses for occasions even when they have the clothes.
Why do people wear shorts to church? We do not spend nearly the amount of time on our hair as people do now. Women like to wear their hair longer and men have it much shorter. Both sexes shave it all off when they're in active military service. Far less medical treatment in the future even though It's more advanced. People die when they now its time to die. No lasers. Genetic medicine and cloning organs are the obvious new techs in the future.
The Constitution was changed after the war. We have 5 presidents that are voted in and out on different term periods. The vice president is the president of the senate and they are voted separately. We have cars, just not a whole bunch of them. There is public transportation from city to city.
November 07, If I could bring some material thing back to your time from , it would be a copy of the new US Constitution. Yes, you could travel to a future that was 0. The C uses the second as the basic unit of measure. The C may be capable of. If you arrived a fraction of a second in my past or future on another worldline would I ever know that you arrived? No "you" would not.
But the "you" on that worldline would. It is believed there is some sort of measurable quantum differences in worldlines. I am not an expert on that so I can offer little information.
You would be welcome in my home. November 08, Can you explain what the purpose of time travel is on your worldline? In , a great deal of effort is going into "repairing" our environment. I was sent to to get a computer system and take it back to Time travel is not a secret in and I expect it will become more common. Why is time travel used? Right now, its used to get information or "items" that would be helpful in getting a post WWIII world back to a normal condition.
There are 7 other time travelers in my unit. Where do time travelers the most? Right now, most of our practical missions are from to There is a great deal of research into later and future periods but the farther you go, the lower the divergence confidence of the worldline. You said there is more than one time machine. Are they all being used? What type of vehicle will you get to go back in since you sold the other car? It's a 4WD. The vehicle needs a strong suspension system to handle the weight of the distortion unit.
Are you able to take other people with you when traveling in time? If you change cars do you have to re-adjust the time machine?
Who was John Titor, the 'time traveller' who came from 2036 to warn us of a nuclear war?
But it's a function of the VGL system. A gravity baseline is taken and rechecked every time the unit is used. A new vehicle would alter the gravity signature. What type of system is used to maintain the singularity? I am not a physicist so I cannot answer that to your level of sophistication. The singularities are held in an enclosed magnetic field. Can you dimensionally travel with the time machine? However, the longer the unit is on past a safe divergence confidence, the "stranger" the worldline becomes.
November 11, If your time machine is accurate to the second then you must have a reason for choosing the moment you arrive. My goal was to reach a certain date and time which is converted into seconds for the computer to make its calculations. I do not pick the second. It's more important to have a low divergence confidence number.
Are you here now to observe the results of the presidential election?
I would use the word "elections" a bit cautiously. Perhaps it's easier now to see a civil war in your future? November 11, If you're here to get a computer, why are you are posting on a message board? I think you're committing treason! Why would it be treason? November 11, You're time machine travels at 10 years an hour?
That would take you more than three hours? And then there was his reason for travelling. Titor claimed he had been sent back to to retrieve an IBM computer, which was needed to debug ageing machines still used in Titor claimed the was needed in the future due to a special feature which IBM did not publicly announce. Sure enough, Bob Dubke, an engineer who helped design it, confirmed that such a feature existed.
The Time Travel Tale of John Titor
The had the rare ability to emulate programs in older languages used by IBM mainframes, but the company was worried about how its competition might use it, and told nobody. So Titor was at least a very well-informed hoaxer — a computer scientist or enthusiast who used his knowledge well.
There was a brief period where his predictions weren't yet due and where they could still technically come true.
But then arrived and there was no civil war. The Olympics that year were not cancelled. The president in was George W. A drawing of Titor's military insignia After the failure of these predictions, most of the Titor activity online died down.
But not all of it. A private detective hired by an Italian TV company concluded that John Rick, with his presumed computer knowledge, was the culprit.
And Titor's name had actually been first used in , with a different set of predictions including chaos caused by the Y2K bug. Larry apparently claims to be the lawyer for John Titor's mother. So Titor was wrong, and there's a clear candidate for his real identity.
Mystery solved? Not according to some fans. Perhaps Titor stayed at their house for a while. He said that not only would no one believe him but also the technology to locate him would not be used or could be defeated for a short period.
He also had an unusual amount of trust with the people he spoke with online. I can only affect what happens here just as easily as you can. Why do people in this time period worry so much about time travelers destroying their world line when they have no problem doing it themselves every day?
Even though the invention of the airplane is only a decade in the future, he would have to find some frame of reference to explain the basics of flight. Then, he would have to outline the mechanics of how the engine works.
As amazing as it would sound, the jet would be invented about thirty years later. I am hard pressed to accept any criticism on my outlook on that subject. Growing up might have been a vastly different experience for me than it was for most of you.There are actually three computers linked together that take the same signals from the gravity sensors and clocks.
First, we will be driving the current vehicle Chevy truck with the displacement unit in it to Tampa Florida. The responsibility for the "disaster" is your own but I do not consider it a disaster. There is public transportation from city to city. While the machine is on, everything is black. After two VGL checks, the divergence was estimated at about 2. Why don't you believe you have something interesting or worthwhile to say to someone in the future?
