Nikola Tesla, the brilliant inventor and electrical and mechanical engineer, also had a strong interest in time travel. According to some theories, he also designed his own machine to achieve this.
Apparently, Tesla too was obsessed with time travel. A series of declassified documents assure that Tesla managed to travel through time. He worked on a time machine and reportedly succeeded, saying: ‘I could see the past, present, and future all at the same time.’
The idea that humans are able to travel in time has captured the imaginations of millions around the globe. When analyzing the history of humanity, there is a series of texts that, when studied, could be considered evidence of time travel.
An example of this is Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity , from 1905. This hypothesis generated a great uproar within the scientific community, generating many questions, such as the possibility of traveling through time.
The Bible, according to theorist and writer Erich Von Däniken, contains proof of temporal travel:
“In the Bible, the prophet Jeremiah was sitting together
with a few of his friends, and there was a young boy. His name was Abimelech, and Jeremiah said to Abimelech, “Go out of Jerusalem, there is a hill and collect some figs for us.” The boy went out and collected the fresh figs. All of a sudden, Abimelech hears some noise and wind in the air, and he becomes unconscious, he had a blackout. After a time, he wakes up again, and he saw it was nearly the evening. So when he runs back to the society
and the city was full of strange soldiers. And he says, “What’s going on here? Where are Jeremiah and all the others?” And an old man said, “That was 62 years ago.” It’s a time travel story written in the Bible. – Von Däniken.
If we look at the Mahabharata, written in the eighth century BC, King Raivata is described as traveling to the heavens to meet with the creator god Brahma, only to return to Earth hundreds of years in the future.
In Japan, the legend of Urashima Taro describes the tale of a fisherman’s visit to the protector god of the sea– Ryūjin in an underwater palace for what seemed like only three days. When he returns to his fishing village, he finds that it’s been 300 years since he’s been gone.
Maybe all of these ‘myths’ inspired great thinkers to try and figure out a way to achieve time travel.
At present, a team of scientists from the University of Queensland, Australia has carried out a simulation of the behavior of photons that travel in time. Which could show us that the ancient paradox of the impossibility of time travel could be solved. The researchers used photons and did a simulation of quantum particles traveling into the past . After analyzing their behavior, the scientists discovered that there were strange aspects to modern physics.
However, it seems that Nikola Tesla may have worked on time travel before modern science even thought it was possible.
According to reports, in 1895 Tesla made a shocking discovery suggesting that time and space could be influenced by magnetic fields. This idea –that one could alter time and space by magnetic fields— led to a number of experiments that allegedly gave birth to the infamous Philadelphia project—considered mostly a hoax.
It is believed that Tesla worked on the idea of time travel, discovering amazing results along the way. Using magnetic fields, Tesla found that the space-time barrier could be ‘altered’ and accessed by creating a “trojan horse,” which eventually led to a different time.
However, it is still unclear whether or not Tesla actually achieved this as there are no documents whatsoever that prove—or, for that case—disprove something like this occurred.
To date, the only sure thing in the reports is the account of a witness who found
Tesla in 1895. Inside a small cafeteria, the inventor seemed disturbed and agitated. His assistant said that Tesla was almost electrocuted by a machine, when he returned from a trip in time.
After nearly dying, Tesla claimed he had found himself in an entirely different time and space window, where he could see the past, present, and future at the same time while staying within the artificially created ‘magnetic field.’
There are many skeptics who claim that it is impossible that Tesla has managed to travel through time. However, the advance of science shows, little by little, this possibility.
