According to great scientists such as Albert Einstein, time is not as stable as most of us think. As humans we’re adjusted to time and our evolution has established tricks to allow our conscious minds to deal with it but in reality it’s a slippery concept.
Time slips occur when a current time (now) interlaces with a previous time (then) and can be experienced by the person from the more recent time. However, the event is usually unnoticed by the people from the earlier time. What is the evidence for this phenomenon?
Well, plenty if you know where to look. In fact it’s so common that we’ve even built it into the English language. We’ll explain. When a time slip occurs people in both realities are able to experience the alternative reality.
Still, according to most accounts, this usually lasts for only a few seconds and the human brain does its best to filter out these anomalies. This has given rise to expressions such as “I could have sworn that I’ve just seen” or “my eyes must be playing tricks on me” or even “you won’t believe what I just saw”. Over the years people have claimed that they’ve seen old airplanes parked in fields that were once airports or roman soldiers marching down their road.
In almost all cases the person experiencing the time slip blinks, looks again and is startled to find that whatever they saw has now vanished. However, photography has captured these anomalies from the time that the camera was first invented. In fact, the longer exposure times of early cameras have revealed more than the modern “instant” versions do but there arestill oddities such as the image captured on Google Earth that clearly shows a World War Two bomber flying over Britain. Is this a time slip or just the folks at Google having a laugh? Perhaps it’s a reconstruction from an air show?
Not all time slips are brief and there have been occasions when people have entered a room and been startled to find that they are in a completely different time. One case was recorded by Mr Archie “Racer” Carmichael who was driving from Birmingham to London in 1953 when he stopped for a drink in a Cotswold village near Borton-on-the-Water.
He parked his Austin-Healy 100/4 outside the local pub and entered for a drink. He was shocked when the he found the people inside the bar looked as if they were from an earlier century. His attempts to communicate were ignored and after a few minutes the scene dissolved and Archie found himself being asked if he was alright by a worried looking barman. It seems that he thought he had seen ghosts but was probably experiencing a time slip.
Alexander: About 15+ years ago, I was reading all the – so called – paranormal magazines that I could get my hands on. Together with a friend we’ve had a pretty impressive collection of magazines and newspapers dealing with mysteries, UFOs, ghosts, etc.I’ve read tens of stories about ‘time-travelers’. I remember two in particular, but unfortunately without names or traceable details, and of course, I cannot guarantee their authenticity..
A man drove with his wife and daughter to a nearby postal office, with the intention to send a postcard to someone. The husband parked the car and while he was walking down the street towards the postal office, his wife and daughter witnessed him disappearing and reappearing about five minutes later.
The man was convinced that he traveled about 100 years back in time. Instead of the postal office, there was a stationery (paper shop). He even came back with few sheets of ‘waxed’ paper, the common writing paper of those times.
The second story is about 2 students who enjoyed spending time in a cemetery, studying Latin writings from ancient graves and other interesting monuments found there.
One day, while they were translating a text from inside a crypt, one of them disappeared in front of the other one’s eyes. The second student looked for his friend in vain; later, he ran to the police and told them that his friend simply disappeared. The policemen did not believe him and thought that he murdered his friend and hid his body somewhere in the cemetery. So they went there looking for the missing student or signs of his murder. They found nothing, and because there was no proof to support the murder theory, the young man was not arrested.
Some time later, the student decided to go and take another look at the crypt where his friend vanished and while he was looking around he found a writing underneath the one they were studying. It was from his friend, who traveled back in time and was not able to come back.
Of course, the student ran to the police once again and just like the first time they did not believed him. They thought that he was the one who wrote the message, in order to support his theory. But the writing looked to be ancient, which puzzled the policemen even more. So they asked a specialist to come and date the writing, and the results were bone chilling. The student was telling the truth.
Further, I will share with you three of the more notorious cases of ‘time slips’.
The Victor Goddard Time-Slip Case
Victor Goddard, who is known in Great Britain as the father of the Royal Air Force, evidently had an experience with a time slip. This man was known to be a genuine gentleman and as honest as they come, yet in 1935 he experienced a phenomena that he was unable to explain.
“In 1935, Air Marshal Sir Victor Goddard of the British Royal Air Force had a harrowing experience in his Hawker Hart biplane. Goddard was a Wing Commander at the time and while on a flight from Edinburgh, Scotland to his home base in Andover, England, he decided to fly over an abandoned airfield at Drem, not far from Edinburgh. The useless airfield was overgrown with foliage, the hangars were falling apart and cows grazed where planes were once parked. Goddard then continued his flight to Andover, but encountered a bizarre storm. In the high winds of the storm’s strange brown-yellow clouds, he lost control of his plane, which began to spiral toward the ground.
Narrowly averting a crash, Goddard found that his plane was heading back toward Drem. As he approached the old airfield, the storm suddenly vanished and Goddard’s plane was now flying in brilliant sunshine. This time, as he flew over the Drem airfield, it looked completely different. The hangars looked like new. There were four airplanes on the ground: three were familiar biplanes, but painted in an unfamiliar yellow; the fourth was a monoplane, which the RAF had none of in 1935. The mechanics were dressed in blue overalls, which Goddard thought odd since all RAF mechanics dressed in brown overalls.
Strange, too, that none of the mechanics seemed to notice him fly over. Leaving the area, he again encountered the storm, but managed to make his way back to Andover. It wasn’t until 1939 that that the RAF began to paint their planes yellow, enlisted a monoplane of the type that Goddard saw, and the mechanics uniforms were switched to blue.”
Goddard somehow flew four years into the future and then returned to his own time in a matter of hours. What make this story really strange is that 16 years earlier, Goddard had another paranormal event in his life.
This photo was taken in 1919 and was published in 1975 by Sir Victor Goddard. The photo is a group portrait of Goddard’s squadron, which had served in World War I aboard the HMS Daedalus. An extra ghostly face appears in the photo. In back of the airman positioned on the top row, fourth from the left, can be seen the face of another man.
It is said to be the face of Freddy Jackson, an air mechanic who had been accidentally killed by an airplane propeller two days earlier. His funeral had taken place on the day this photograph was snapped. Members of the squadron easily recognized the face as Jackson’s. It has been suggested that Jackson, unaware of his death, decided to show up for the group photo.
‘The Time Traveler’ Picture
An intriguing photograph from the 1940s showing a man in modern clothing has been doing the rounds on the web. The photograph shows a crowd of people at the reopening of the South Fork Bridge in British Columbia, one of the people there however is wearing shades, a modern looking top and has a portable camera.
The man with what appears to be very modern sunglasses seems to be wearing a stamped T-shirt with a nice sweater, all the while holding a portable compact camera!
Charlie Chaplin’s ‘Time Traveler Talking on a Mobile Phone’
Filmmaker George Clarke from Belfast thinks he’s come across something quite interesting — a time traveler talking on a cell phone in 1928. The filmmaker shows the evidence in a YouTube video, taken from footage on a DVD of the premiere of Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus at Graumann’s Chinese Theatre in 1928, and it seems everyone is talking about it! In the video, it looks like a woman is walking along the street at the premiere, with her hand held up to her ear as if she’s talking into a phone. But of course, there were no mobile phones in 1928.
Of course, the question is: “could the lady use a mobile phone in 1928 even if she had one?” And the answer is no, not without a mobile phone relay. But we can clearly see her talking into the device. So what if she was not a time traveler, but instead she was experiencing a ‘time slip’?
In the previous case of Mr Archie “Racer” Carmichael, he was able to see everyone in the pub, but no one could see him. The same happened to Victor Goddard while he was flying over the airport. The mechanics were not able to see him, even though he clearly saw them while flying over their heads.
Basically, those experiencing a ‘time slip’ are probably ‘not there’ for the human eye. Those from the ‘right time’ cannot decode the frequency of the ‘time traveler’. It’s like having a TV, but not having the antenna plugged in. Even though hundreds of TV stations are broadcasting their signal, one is not able to decode a channel without the proper decoding tool. Our bodies are decoders for this reality, and we are tuned into it. That’s why we are not able to see/experience other dimensions.
A ‘time slip’ is actually the capability of ‘tuning into another frequency’, not a physical ‘time travel’. Just like tuning into a radio station.
The majority of Earth’s population accepts the theory (100% fact, in my opinion) that we have so called “souls” attached to our physical bodies. So why can’t we see them? Because our souls are connected to our bodies from another dimension, one we cannot decode. We are “driving” these vehicles called human bodies from another dimension. We are both here and there, experiencing “present” in two different dimensions, from two different perspectives.
Knowing this, an interesting question arises: “can a photo camera record things that we are not able to?” Apparently, in certain occasions it is possible to take pictures of beings from other dimensions. I remember seeing countless pictures of “ghosts” of dead people, just like Freddy Jackson’s ghost appeared in the group photo from 1919. Just because we are not able to explain something, it doesn’t mean that it’s not possible.
