The idea of photographs of time travellers or immortal beings fascinates us. While photographs are typically considered snapshots of a specific moment in time, some speculate that they might accidently capture rare phenomena. Factors like photographic manipulation, coincidental resemblances, or the limitations of visual perception can contribute to the illusion of time travel or immortality in photographs. Nevertheless, these intriguing possibilities about the unexplained mysteries that may lie beyond our boundaries of normal understanding.
Mobile Phone in 1943
The initial photograph seemingly captures a snapshot of downtown Reykjavík, Iceland, in 1943, during the midst of wartime. The streets are bustling with soldiers, sailors, and civilians going about their daily lives. However, what caught attention is a man circled in the photograph who appears to be using a mobile phone. It’s worth noting that the first handheld mobile phone, the Motorola DynaTAC 8000X, was introduced in 1973. Therefore, a good 30 years after the Icelandic street scene was captured. This strange detail raises questions about the nature of what the man is holding. Curiously, inviting questions about possible reasons for this unexplained photo.
Greta The Time Traveller
In 2019, a photograph taken in 1898 depicting three children working at a gold mine in Canada’s Yukon territory surfaced. Interestingly, one of the children bore a striking resemblance to the young climate activist, Greta Thunberg. This peculiar similarity sparked online arguements and whimsical theories about Thunberg being a time traveller. Eerily the debate she journeyed through time to champion the cause of saving the planet. While it may seem like a mysterious journey, the idea of Thunberg selecting such an unconventional year for her mission is rather odd. Either way it is a strange yet funny idea to entertain.
Patriotic Vladimir Putin
In recent years, a collection of images emerged online, of Russian President Vladimir Putin. They are across different decades, seemingly without any noticeable signs of aging. This peculiar observation sparked discussions of the possibility of Putin being a time traveler. In addition, the idea of him being immortal. If these claims held any truth, it would show a huge level of patriotism. Hence, as each image shows Putin actively serving his country in various eras. However, it is more plausible to decide that this phenomenon is a strong resemblance or coincidental. What do you think of these photographs of time travellers?
