Wouldn’t it be great if we could go back in time? We could change the things from our past, stop mistakes before they happen, maybe even save the world. Unfortunately, that kind of technology doesn’t exist yet, but what about in the future? Well, a new video that has gone viral may prove the existence of time travel, and a time traveller may be among us right now.
Time Travel: Are The Stories True?
A video posted on February 9th on YouTube by ApexTV, shows what appears to be a time traveller stating that he is from the future. The video, which has over a million views, shows a man with their face pixelated and voice altered, answering questions while being hooked up to a polygraph (lie detector) machine. The man in the video claims his name is Noah, and that he is really 50 years old, but he says that he took an age rejuvenation pill to transform him to a 25 year old.
In the video, Noah makes some bold claims and predictions about what is in store for us in the next 12 years. Some of his predictions include Bitcoin becoming increasingly popular and being used to purchase things, but physical money will still be used. He also claims that Trump will be re-elected, and in 2030, someone by the name of Ilana Remikee will be the president of the United States.
One of his claims seems to be the most realistic; he states that electric vehicles will be moving as fast as gasoline and diesel powered vehicles. We already have examples of this currently, but more electric cars don’t sound like a bad thing.
Some of his more fantastic claims include humans reaching Mars by the year 2028, just 10 years after Elon Musk shot his Tesla Roadster into space to orbit around Mars. Noah also claims that we also gain the ability to travel through time in the same year.
But Does Passing A Lie Detector Test Mean It’s True?
While ApexTV attempts to bring some sense of credibility to this interview by hooking up Noah to a lie detector, this doesn’t necessarily mean that what he’s saying is true. A polygraph works by measuring different signals from the person being questioned, usually their breathing rate, pulse, blood pressure, and perspiration. These readings are recorded on a sheet of paper, and the person administering the test can look at these readings and tell if a person is being truthful or not.
When someone is lying, their body shows certain signs like an increased heart rate. The administer of the test begins by asking questions they know are true, like the person’s name, to establish a baseline and see what their readings are like when telling the truth. They compare that to the other answers and can determine whether a lie was told.
How to Beat a Lie Detector Test
But beating a polygraph isn’t impossible. A person can train their bodies to not show these physical signs when they are lying, or they can throw off the whole test by presenting the signs of lying during the routine questions. An example of this can be seen in the movie Ocean’s Eleven, where the person taking the polygraph would step down on a thumbtack during the establishing questions to make all the results inconclusive.
ApexTv also doesn’t show the results of the polygraph, or the machine itself in the video. They only show the word ‘True’ of ‘False’ superimposed on the video after a question has been answered. This interview would have a lot more credibility if they had shown the actual test results.
While this is the latest claim when it comes to time travel, it doesn’t make the story any less interesting. Do you think any of these “predictions” will come true? What would you do if you could travel back in time? For now, we’ll have to just keep moving forward and find out what happens in due time.
