The mystery of the John Titor Story has always fascinated many people who This book is all about the verification of John Titor's words with. Posted by John Titor on PM. I have been commuinicating online with others who are interested in time travel. Also, for more information. John Titor is the name used on several bulletin boards during and .. "The IBM Family of APL Systems, IBM Systems Journal" (PDF).

We will then move the displacement unit lbs or so into the new vehicle and go back to There was just something about them which was convincing; just grubby enough to seem real, laced with just enough technobabble to convince the lay science enthusiast.

A schematic supplied by Titor Okay, I can sense you rolling your eyes. But you have to understand, this was a different time. But in the year there were no smartphones, no social media.

The cold blue glow of the CRT monitor was a portal into another world entirely — big, mysterious, and with no fixed identities. In this liminal place — one where, as the New Yorker once put it, nobody knew you were a dog — the idea of a time traveller posting on a bulletin board almost seemed plausible. 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 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. He was assigned to a governmental time-travel project, and sent back to to retrieve an IBM computer, which he said was needed to debug various legacy computer programs in — a possible reference to the UNIX year problem. Titor said he had been selected for this mission specifically, given that his paternal grandfather was directly involved with the assembly and programming of the Titor also said he had been, for a few months, trying to alert anyone that would listen about the threat of Creutzfeldt—Jakob disease spread through beef products and about the possibility of civil war within the United States.

When questioned about them by an online subscriber, Titor also expressed an interest in mysteries such as UFOs , which remained unexplained in his time. Titor suggested that UFOs and extraterrestrials might be travelers from much further into the future than his own time, with superior time machines. Titor described his time machine on several occasions. In an early post, he described it as a "stationary mass, temporal displacement unit powered by two top-spin, dual positive singularities", producing a "standard off-set Tipler sinusoid".

According to the posts, the device was installed in the rear of a Chevrolet Corvette convertible [8] and later mentioned a truck having four-wheel drive. Titor shared several scans of the manual of a "C Time Displacement Unit" with diagrams and schematics and posted some photographs of the device installed in the car. Although invoking the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics , whereby events from his timeline may differ from our own, Titor also expressed assurance that the differences were minimal.

As such, his descriptions have been interpreted as predictions and compared with historical events since The most immediate of Titor's predictions was of an upcoming civil war in the United States having to do with "order and rights".

This civil conflict that he characterized as "having a Waco type event every month that steadily gets worse" [11] would be "pretty much at everyone's doorstep" [10] and erupt by As a result of the war, the United States would split into five regions based on various factors and differing military objectives.

Titor refers to the exchange as "N Day". Washington, D. After the war, Omaha , Nebraska would be the new U. At one point, he characterized the hostilities as being led by "border clashes and overpopulation". Titor claimed that as a year-old in , he joined the Fighting Diamondbacks, a shotgun infantry unit in Florida, for at least four years.

In other posts, he described himself as hiding from the war. Titor claimed that the "Everett—Wheeler model of quantum physics", better known as the many-worlds interpretation , was correct.

The Time Travel Tale of John Titor

Apparently as Mr. Titor's time machine operates it navigates through these alternate realities, and time travelers try to stay as close to possible to their original worldline, the success of their efforts being measured in percent divergence from their original worldline.

We are just a few percent divergence away from Mr. Titor's original worldline, he says. According to Mr. Titor, while he believes we are headed for and will experience the same major disasters he knows from his history, we still have the power to alter our reality as we choose: we do have free will.

Because there are an infinity of universes where all different choices are played out anyway, it therefore wouldn't harm anything if we did take steps to intelligently modify our future, and that is also why Mr. Titor felt he could do no harm by slightly modifying this reality by revealing himself here.

He mentioned some small divergences he's noticed, such as books not written and sports events won by other teams, which he says is normal for divergence of a few percent, and that some divergence is inevitable he can never return to the exact same worldline he left in , but he can come very close. Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease CJD will be epidemic by and it is spread by eating the meat of animals infected with related diseases such as BSE bovine spongiform encephalopathy, better known as Mad Cow Disease.

CJD is a horrible and fatal brain-deteriorating disease for which there is no treatment or cure, presently believed to be caused by a prion an abnormal isoform of a host-encoded protein, with no RNA or DNA.

Titor expressed astonishment that people are so careless about the food they routinely ingest; apparently CJD has a latent period of 10 to 30 years, which means if Mr. Titor was not a fraud that many people are probably unwittingly contracting the disease today who will become victims of the CJD epidemic.

We're ignorant meat eaters.

Civil war in the United States will begin in or , as the result of increasingly oppressive police state tactics like warrantless searches and other violations of American civil liberties. It will become common for people to have their doors kicked in and homes violently invaded by police looking for evildoers.

The Gestapo-style oppression of innocents by an increasingly oppressive and murderous government will be worst in the cities, so many people will seek refuge in the countryside, but police will soon enough seek them out there too.

Civil war will emerge as a more or less continuous series of military sieges and confrontations resembling the Ruby Ridge and Waco police massacres of and , and it will begin by or perhaps it might not be obvious in the beginning what's actually happening.

As time goes on the civil war will become more and more a continuous conflict between paranoid government forces headquartered in the cities, against perceived or imagined threats in the rural civilian population.

The American government will wage war against its own citizens, winning most of the battles, but the battling will drag on for years. In the nuclear war of our cities will be primary targets, so the civil war will end then in favor of the rurals when the government and its domestic armies are destroyed. In this way the nuclear war will be regarded by the survivors as a good thing.

Surely it is so farfetched that only a genuine time traveler or very good fortune teller could forsee it at this time. If a civil war in America does validate prediction 5, a reasonable person ought to consider that Mr.

Titor was not a fraud and that nuclear war is very likely to occur in In that case it will remain possible though still not probable to prevent nuclear war, but only if we are able to face the evidence and respond appropriately so that things can be turned around from their present course.

It's remotely possible that the hard cold proof provided by this document may sufficiently alter our worldline to prevent nuclear calamity, but it's more likely that only a modest number of individuals will take heed of an early warning even in the face of its validation.

Denial can allow people to believe in whatever they want to believe in, and people who do not become aware of John Titor's story until after civil war has begun may quite rationally tend to disbelieve that this information existed much sooner and not fabricated after the fact, unless they have some proof of it.

The purpose of these predictions being copyrighted is to therefore provide one way to irrefutably prove that they did exist before the predicted civil war in America: anyone can go to the Copyright Office and see for themselves.

Prediction 3 about multiple worlds is important to us for two reasons: first that we need not be concerned about trying to prevent calamity if we can there would be no harm in changing our worldline for the better , and secondly that some of the details about what Mr. Titor has said could be off slightly because of divergence between his worldline and our own.

For example it might be that nuclear war on our worldline won't occur until even though Mr. Titor was quite exact about Or let's say if divergence between worldlines delayed the predicted civil war until or we would certainly have to question the accuracy of the date, and some might question if any of Mr.

Titor's information could be genuine if civil war is delayed a year or two on our worldline. But he said it will grow gradually and won't totally affect everbody until , so maybe it will take that long to convince some that the situation has grown irreversibly horrible.

But we can expect to see things happening soon that fit the criteria of civil war if you consider one siege or another like Waco going on pretty frequently, that's what he said, and that it will only get worse and worse until it is completely indisputable to everyone by By then the conflict supposedly grows into a real war, and afterward it continues mercilessly until I think it is important to analyze Mr. Titor's information more in terms of significant trends and events rather than splitting hairs over minutae as we evaluate what Mr.

Titor had to say to us because it's the big things that really matter and divergence would be expected to change the timing or other characteristics of small things, but is less likely to affect big things.

It's the big things we care about anyway. Washington, D. He intimated that his family's safety and continuing liberty after his departure were major concerns to him, and predicting a police state is consistent with such cautions.

He apparently wanted to be open but not so open that he'd be in the public eye, and it seems he succeeded. It means however that some things are not as crystal clear as we might like them to be, and we sometimes have to read between the lines a little bit in search of fuller understanding.

Lack of crystal clarity opens the door to possible misinterpretation, which must be guarded against by mindfully keeping open to change while simultaneously maintaining a healthy skepticism. They are not intended to be authoritative, and may in fact be wrong, but for now they work for me. Keep in mind that the truth or falsehood of John Titor's story does not rest upon whether we all understand and agree upon minutae but on whether or not the gist of his story is true: imminent civil war beginning soon, escalating and dragging on until , when nuclear war ends the civil war in favor of the rurals and kills about half the world's population.

If Titor's mission was to retrieve an IBM from , why was he here and posting on the Web in ? What was his promise? He doesn't say exactly.

We do know his grandfather was one of the people who worked on the computer John was tasked with returning to , and it is likely that his grandfather was able to perform the 'tweaks' it needed for fullest use in which exact 'tweaks' aren't known however. At several points Titor alludes to the Y2K non-problem which he would have known from his history , so perhaps his grandfather became interested in the topic and determined to find a way to fix it.

I'm unsure if the computer could make source code too, but you'd think it ought to be able to if it's capable of translating between languages, and if it could translate to Basic, that is source code of one type at least because it's uncompiled code that is evaluated at runtime.

Why did Titor need to get an antique IBM or in some places, a , when he said they have much more powerful computers in than we even have today?

Why can't they just rewrite the code they need, on their more powerful machines? G : because? G : who needed a ?

G : lost me there. Note: here Titor references a , not the like he does elsewhere. What's the difference? Is this a crack in his story, or did he just get mixed up late one night? My fisrt question of interest pertains to the photo that purportedly shows a beam of light from a laser being bent by the gravitational influence from one of the micro-singularities. I noticed however, that while the beam is supposedly being bent, nothing else in the picture is begin effected by the anomoly.

I personally do not believe this but I am gathering notes that a technically incorrect or that could be better.. There are two basic styles: in one type, air comes in one end and goes out the other, the tunnel is linear and open on both ends.

Those are used for high-volume, relatively low flow rates. The other type is a closed loop in which the operating gas is pumped around and recirculated; in those the gas velocities can easily go supersonic but of course the volume flow is less.

Imagine if you will a closed loop type in which the return air cycle has been modified so that instead of looping around off to one side of the working part of the wind tunnel, the return air flows back through a plenum which completely surrounds the working area of the wind tunnel on all sides.

In this way you'd have something like a long donut of air moving one direction in the center and the opposite direction in the plenum surrounding the central portion. That 'vertical safe distance' of 6 meters or 3 meters off the centerline in all axial directions would be the 'hole in the extended donut' of my hypothetical wind tunnel, the working area in which laminar flow was reasonably uniform and useful.

Outside that central area the flow of time, like the flow of return gas in my hypothetical wind tunnel though no plenum need separate time flows goes in the opposite direction and would be represented in the Figures 3 and 4 as the 2 isoline, the output of the 'negative time field'. I have a hard time wrapping my brain around those diagrams sometimes but I think those representations are deliberately cut off for visualization purposes by the egg-shaped outer border, but that they actually would wrap around and meet each other again if the whole field effects were drawn out.

Sort of like iron filings can be used to visualize the strongest field lines at the poles of a bar magnet without usually wrapping all the way around to show the full outer extent of the magnetic fields. If you can imagine two bar magnets interacting to produce distorted field lines that would in some places be more linear than at other places, imagine something like that going on with two microsingularities having interacting field effects to produce a region of more or less linear time distortion inside the 'vertical safe distance'.

It does not appear to me that the light is bending inside the vehicle at all, nor is there any evidence of distortion of the vehicle's door. Titor said that the g-field experienced during operation of the unit was about 2 g's, if I remember correctly. That is certainly tolerable physiologically for extended periods. He also said that the purpose of having a second singularity was to 'steer' the vehicle see 2, the 'steering singularity' in Figure 6 by keeping it on the earth's surface while traversing time, because otherwise the vehicle could wind up in space somewhere far from the earth if it stayed where it was in space while traveling back in time.

The exact vector of time distortion desired would therefore be dependent upon the position of the earth where the vehicle was being operated, relative to the orbital motion of the earth around the Sun and the movement of the Sun in the galaxy, maybe even the motion of the galaxy through the cosmos, though some of those movements would be expected to remain essentially constant.

So the direction of the laser beam in the photo shown, which is initially linear and then bends backward and down, would in my opinion not necessarily always have a downward component at a constant angle like the one shown but might vary in its downward angle or even go upward in some circumstances.

Any angle off the fore-aft line of the vehicle might therefore represent the effect of the 'steering singularity' needed to keep the vehicle on earth's surface while traversing time. It is also possible that a time traversal results in an increased apparent force of gravity because that force gets compressed into a smaller time span, and this might actually limit the rate at which time may be moved through I think John Titor said his rate was about ten years per hour.


The resultant angle of an output laser as shown in Figure 10 may therefore also be influenced in part by an apparently intensified to the observer riding inside the vehicle g-field of the earth, although I doubt that 2 g's could have any visible effect; it is probably almost all due to the effect of the steering singularity.

Think of it as the return flow of the high-pressure gas in my hypothetical donut wind tunnel's plenum not being exactly parallel to the motion of the opposite laminar flow in the center portion.

That's how I view it, anyway. Yes that photo could have been easily faked in Photoshop, without a doubt. The technical drawings and other photographs could also have been faked, some more easily than others.

But it seems to me that it has to be pretty damn hard to fake a working design for a time machine. Nobody else has ever come up with such a potentially practical design except for Tipler proposing massive cylinders weighing millions or billions of solar masses spinning in space at billions or trillions of rpm, with a high-performance spaceship to approach them at certain angles.

This design is something unique and worth considering, especially since many physicists fully expect to see microsingularites being produced at CERN's Large Hadron Collider when it comes online in Regards, Karl S.

Well, it has been over 3 years, and the most I've heard from CERN is that they're probably going to have the LHC up and running by , but nobody to date has discovered any blackholes in any particle accelerators.

This plus all the copyrights associated with this "John Titor Foundation", lead me to believe the whole thing is a hoax, albeit a clever one. My Reply: The year when Titor said microsingularities will get created is certainly a discrepancy, no doubt about that. Several possibilities exist: 1 Microsingularities may indeed be getting created in very rare events at some accelerators but people haven't figured out what they are yet because they are so rare.

This kind of thing happens all the time actually. If so that puts his other dates on very shaky footing.

This topic was among the first things I researched when I first learned of Titor's story. If Titor was a fraud he certainly could have just as easily determined that date as I did, and you'd think he would have gone to the trouble to do so given all the time and energy it would have taken to create all the documents and photos and a model of the time machine, etc.

So in that way this apparent discrepancy seems much more likely to arise from our missing a key piece of information rather than it being a clear invalidation of Titor's story. What do you think about the "John Titor Foundation"? In my opinion the John Titor Foundation is simply one or more opportunists trying to capitalize on Titor's popularity for short-term financial gain see Imposters and Frauds.

Their low-quality output so far supports that opinion but I am concerned that they may be trying to co-opt the story in order to discredit it entirely. Just because there are obviously other hoaxsters trying to ride the coattails of John Titor's story doesn't mean that Titor himself was a fraud.

He did come up with a plausible design for a time travel machine, and whether he simply relayed the information about it to us or invented the thing himself, there's no denying that it originated with Titor as far as we are concerned and that it is a masterful conception far beyond the range of ordinary hoaxsters like the John Titor Foundation.

How could anyone go through a black hole? Black holes don't send things back in time, they destroy them In Titor's description of the development of a time machine, he said the researchers didn't realize at first that they had to take the earth's motion through space into account, so the robotic prototypes they built for testing purposes would disappear and not return as expected.

Eventually they realized that their prototype time machines were reappearing miles away and several thousand feet in the air, and that a second 'steering singularity' was needed to keep the devices in place on the surface of the earth while also moving in time. So the first tests were accomplished robotically until presumably enough confidence was gained to start using human volunteers. Titor didn't describe the human testing part of the process so we don't know if there were any fatalities or 'lost' time travelers, but those would certainly be possibilities.

However, as described by Titor the devices don't work by actually sending anyone INTO a black hole, instead the microsingularities are used to create a local distortion of gravity and time that enables time travel.

If you look at the field diagrams Figs. The universe, in all of it's random chaos, is perfect and infallible Titor specificaly addressed this issue, it is called the 'grandfather paradox': if you went back in time and caused the death of your grandfather, then you would never be born, thus never able to take the trip back to cause the death of your grandfather.

This idea is an old one based on the supposition that there is only one worldline that one might be able to move back and forth along.Do you play an instrument? I get my email remotely through about three different systems and I use one of your hand-held computer units to write with.

It has always surprised me why that concept is so hard for people to imagine and accept. Hydrogen fuel cells and more efficient solar cells are big deals.

What would happen if something touched the distortion field as it is turned on? This idea is an old one based on the supposition that there is only one worldline that one might be able to move back and forth along.
