If you ask most people if time travel is possible, they’ll probably say no. After all, if time travel were possible, wouldn’t we have seen people from the future by now? Surely somebody would have accidentally time traveled by now and given us a heads up about what the future holds, or at least about what President Trump is really like. But the fact is, we have no idea if time travel is possible or not. It’s one of those things that we can’t prove or disprove. All we can do is look at the evidence and see if it points to time travel being possible or not.
So what is the evidence? Well, there are a few things that could be interpreted as evidence for time travel. One is the famous story of the Philadelphia Experiment. In 1943, the US military allegedly conducted an experiment in which they attempted to make a ship invisible to radar. The story goes that during the experiment, the ship and crew disappeared and then reappeared at another location. Some people have interpreted this as evidence that the military had accidentally discovered time travel and used it to move the ship and crew through time.
However, there’s no conclusive evidence that the Philadelphia Experiment ever took place. There are no official records of it, and the people who allegedly witnessed it have all died. So it’s possible that the whole thing is just a legend.
There are also a few cases of people claiming to have time traveled. One famous case is that of a man named Andrew Basiago. Basiago claims that he was part of a CIA project in the 1970s called Project Pegasus. Project Pegasus was allegedly a time travel project, and Basiago claims that he participated in it. He has written extensively about his experiences and has even produced what he says is photographic evidence.
However, again, there is no conclusive evidence that Basiago is telling the truth. His story is full of holes, and the photographic evidence could easily be faked. So until Basiago or someone else can produce concrete evidence, we can’t say for sure that time travel is possible.
So what does the evidence really tell us? Unfortunately, not much. Time travel is one of those things that we may never be able to prove or disprove. All we can do is look at the evidence and try to make sense of it. But until somebody comes forward with concrete evidence, we’ll just have to keep wondering if time travel is possible or not.
