Is time travel possible? That remains a very disputed question in the world of science. Many complex hypotheses have been proposed to argue for or against the possibility of time travel.
But sometimes, you can stumble across items from the past that can only be explained by assuming that time travel is in fact possible. Sometimes, these items can be photographs showing time travelers. Let’s take a look at some pictures.
Doesn’t this man in the picture look almost scaringly similar to Jay-Z? The resemblance is even more uncanny when one considers that this picture was taken in the Marcy area of Brooklyn; that’s exactly the neighborhood where Jay-Z was born and raised.
Even the stone-cold look that this guy gives to the cameraman is strikingly reminiscent of Jay-Z’s facial expressions. Maybe Beyoncé’s husband was around the Marcy projects way, way before his rap career.
Apparently, the man in the picture was a professor of Latin at the University of Memphis during the 1920s. Other than that, he looks shockingly similar to Johnny Depp. So similar that it can’t be a coincidence.
From Latin scholar to Pirates of the Caribbean to cologne commercials. Now that’s what I call a jack of all trades.
The photograph on the right seems to be dated from the 1900s and it shows a man scaringly similar to John Travolta. So much so, that it has been sold on eBay as proof that the Grease and Pulp Fiction actor is a time traveler.
He might be John, he might not. He might just be him at a very young age, with no time travel necessarily involved. If so, then hey, props to John’s plastic surgeon.
This painting is a portrait of a man known as Sebastián de Morra. It was painted in 1644 by the Spanish artist Velázquez, the court painter for the Spanish king Phillip IV.
Sebastián de Morra was a court dward and jester for the king. Sadly, dwarfs were often made fun of and used as entertainers for kings and members of the nobility in that era. But this one looks an awful lot to Peter Dinklage, the Game of Thrones actor. Well, at least the conditions in the entertainment industry are probably better now.
This was found in the sarcophagus of one Chinese mummy dating from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). This means that the mummy was at the very least 400 years old. The item seems to be a ring.
But it looks just like a Swiss watch. How could the Ancient Chinese predict so accurately how watches would look 400 years later?
One Reddit user shared this picture of his great-great-grandfather. Apparently, the photograph was taken in the 1890s.
But doesn’t that man look strikingly similar to the actor Matthew McConaughey? Just try to mentally remove the mustache and you’ll see. They’re almost identical! Can this be a coincidence or is the Oscar-winning actor a time traveler? We might never know.
This is a screenshot from some footage recorded in the streets of Tokyo during the early 2000s. What can be seen in the video is absolutely puzzling. The footage shows what seems like an imminent car accident: a truck gets really close to running over a cyclist; then a mysterious man appears and apparently reverses time to avoid the accident.
You don’t believe us? Go check the video yourself. It left us baffled and it will probably make you feel the same way.
It seems like Keanu Reeves has a dopplegänger: the French actor Paul Mounet, born in 1847. Mounet reached his prime in 1909, when he starred in a French silent movie on Shakespeare’s play Macbeth.
This fact might not seem of much interest, but when one considers that Keanu Reeves gave Shakespeare a try in Much Ado About Nothing (1993), the coincidences start getting uncanny.
At first glance, this picture might very much look like a ”casual” photograph of Marilyn. But when you take a closer look, you can see her friend holding something that looks scaringly similar to an iPhone, like she was the one taking the picture.
There have always been rumors of Marilyn being connected to plots and stories that seem straight out of a spy movie. Maybe she was connected to military intelligence too and the first smartphones were a CIA invention?
This photograph was taken in British Columbia during the 1940s. Ah, back in the day when every man used to wear a hat and hair gel.
Then what is that man with the sunglasses doing there? And why does he dress like he comes straight out of the ’90s or early 2000s? Was he just a fashion visionary or truly a time traveler?
Bruce Willis is a well-known tough guy. What we didn’t know is that he was so tough that he was one of WWII’s most prominent military leaders. In this picture, he looks just like general Douglas MacArthur.
Going from leading the campaign in the Pacific to starring Die Hard might seem like a downgrade to some, but we can’t blame the man for wanting a less stressful job after the war.
Apparently, Alec Baldwin was governing our country during the 1850s; otherwise, there’s no way one can explain himself the uncanny resemblance the actor holds with our 13th president, Millard Fillmore.
Do you think going from president to comedian is a downgrade, an upgrade, or not that big of a career change?
Nicolas Cage is known for his peculiar style of acting. It sometimes involves what some have called overly dramatic or exaggerated expressions. Some say it’s just bad acting, some call it expressionistic.
But maybe it’s a consequence of the trauma and horror he experienced during the Civil War. This is one picture of him during that period.
When Jimmy Fallon rocks the mustache, he looks just like this Turkish man born in 1946. He was Mahir Caya, the leader of the People’s Liberation Party-Front, which was a Marxist revolutionary group.
Mahir Caya was killed by Turkish soldiers in 1972. Maybe he reincarnated in Jimmy Fallon? Maybe he faked his death? We might never know.
