The future is a dark and foreboding presence on the horizon, full of things like nuclear war, a FIFA World Cup in Qatar and Brexit.
And if any further proof of how royally screwed we all are were needed, some random dude claiming to have visited the year 2118 may have just provided it.
Alexander sMITH isn’t the first guy to claim to have travelled into the future and he’s not the first to make a YouTube video on the subject either.
Smith has got a pretty grim prediction for what is to come though, and from the sounds of it we may as well give up all hopes for the future, right now. Just sack it all off and go down the pub.
That is, if you are willing to take the words of a man who may or may not be wearing prosthetics as gospel. Speaking to Apex TV, Smith claims to have travelled to the year 2118 as part of a top secret CIA Project.
So secret he managed to escape the clutches of the powerful government body and film an interview featuring some pretty full-on revelations concerning our future.
“I visited the year 2118 as part of a top-secret CIA mission. As to my knowledge, it was one of the first times that time travel had successfully been completed,” Smith said.
The man involved had some pretty serious warnings too.
“There are many threats to the human race. The number one threat to humanity as we know it is global warming, rising sea levels as well as the increase in Co2 in our atmosphere. We must take steps now to combat global warming.”
Anyone doubting his claims were soon silenced when the man took out a photo appearing to show a futuristic city. That or an artist’s interpretation of a futuristic city. It’s quite hard to tell.
“They don’t want me telling you this,” Smith claims. “They’re especially not going to like what I’m about to show you.
“When I was in the year 6,000, I managed to take a photograph of a major city. Now I cannot say which city, because it would lead to too much influential change on the future, but I can show you the photograph.”
“You may notice that the picture is distorted, that’s due to the time-travel process,” he adds. Which is convenient. “Some people actually have parts of their bodies distorted because of the process.”
At least that explains his face/mask.
So he travelled through time and possibly space to tell us what? Pollution is bad and it’s going to destroy the planet? Thanks. For. That. Mate.
