The Man From Tomorrow

John Titor claims to have traveled to our time from the year 2036.

A Brief Summary of the John Titor Phenomenon


Although there is debate over the exact date it started, on November 02, 2000, a person calling themselves Timetravel_0, and later John Titor, started posting on a public forum that he was a time traveler from the year 2036.

One of the first things he did was post pictures of his time machine and its operations manual. As the weeks went by, more and more people began questioning him about why he was here, the physics of time travel and his thoughts about our time. He also posted on other forums including the now non-existent Art Bell site. In his posts John Titor entertained, angered, frightened and even belittled those who engaged him in conversation.

On March 21, 2001, John Titor told us he would be leaving our and returning to 2036. After that, he was never heard from again. Speculation and investigation about who John Titor was and why he was online continues to this day.

Although it may be easy to dismiss all this as science fiction, most people who read his posts agree that there is something very haunting about John Titor and what he said. In addition, and open to more debate, he also made a series of predictions and comments that eerily seem to be coming true.

Unfortunately, I never spoke directly to John Titor but there are many out there who have and continue to wonder about their experience. As you get deeper and deeper into the story, you will find his posts, links to other sites about him, downloads and speculative information attributed to him after he left. I have taken the posts and organized them by date and subject. My editorial work is copyrighted but the unedited posts and the people who experienced it are in the public domain can be found on other sites listed inside.

As you read, please try to keep two things in mind:

1. John appeared to answer nearly every question that was asked of him over the 4-month period he was online. Because of that, many people neglected to read the previous posts and asked similar or exact questions he had already answered. It may offer a glimpse of what a time traveler goes through when having the same conversation again and again.

2. These posts were written before 911, the Discovery accident and the second gulf war. Many people believe John may have known of these events and dropped clues without actually referring to them. It's also widely agreed that he made several predictions about future physics discoveries that have materialized as he stated.

I have included a guest book where you may leave your comments. I will endeavor to respond to any questions you have based on my work.

I hope you enjoy your journey with John Titor.

Dude, I had this China thing sewn up in 1995.

Obviously, Titor was a reader.

he made some very specific predictions and from what i understand we'll know pretty soon if they're off the trolley or not.

i don't buy it, personally. for one thing the design/font of his time-travel-machine-instruction-manual is almost ironically retro.

Extremely well executed, if it is a forgery. His "TM-Like" breakout of his timemachine is suprisingly similar stylistically to the manual for my old mobile switchboard when I was in the 5th Mobile WICP.

Unfortunately, the guy has to be fake. He says again and again that he's unconcerned about the consequences of using the usenet to speak about the future, and he mentions Waco in his posts: (as in "I would describe it as having a Waco type event every month that steadily gets worse. The conflict will consume everyone in the US by 2012 and end in 2015 with a very short WWIII.") and yet he ignored September 11th. So in 20-Whatever, they teach Waco but not 9-11?

Big discussion of the whole thing here:

To respond to myself, I really, really, really *want* something like this to be true. It seems like it something that exists right on the edge of possibility.

What is the "Discovery accident"? Does the author of this article know something I don't about next month's shuttle launch? Or are they just confused?
