Time travel is a tricky thing, isn’t it? Finding a DeLorean that actually works as a car is hard enough, let alone building a flux capacitor and transforming the vehicle into a time machine.
Then of course, you’ve got the whole dilemma of what you actually do after you’ve hit 88 miles per hour and gone back (or forward) in time. Because, as we all know, any seemingly insignificant change in detail can have serious consequences throughout the time-space continuum.
One guy who doesn’t seem so concerned about shaking up the continuum however, is so-called time-traveller, Noah.
Check out his video of the future here:
Noah claims to be from the year 2030 (which isn’t all that far away in the grand scheme of things). However, he also claims to have a video that was taken in the year 2120, which he travelled to as part of a top secret mission, reports ApexTV.
Apparently, the traveller is back in 2018 to spread his message ‘after a failed mission’ and to ‘spread the truth about time travel’.
Looks like Doc was right – where we’re going, we don’t need roads. Because we have totally real looking and definitely not CGI flying vehicles to carry us around. Wonder if they’re Tesla?
As you can see, they still use smartphones in the future. I’m not sure if that’s reassuring or disappointing? I would’ve thought smartphones would’ve developed way beyond what we thought was possible into some sort of holographic cloud-based thing that is both scary in a Black Mirror-type way, but pretty cool in a swish, futuristic type way. Anyway, I digress…
Back to the video from 2120, and what Noah shows us Earthlings.
We’re treated to a futuristic cityscape with a few aircrafts flying around the different skyscrapers.
As you can see, there are three vehicles in this video. The lights on the buildings are modernised lights as… because people think it is more stylish for buildings.
He goes on:
If any of you want to know the city that this is, it is Las Vegas, Nevada.
These red clouds are global warming. It is a highly impactive thing in the future, you can see it everywhere.
Of course, the video isn’t the only thing Noah brings back from the future – he also informs us about the future of North and South Korea’s relationship, saying ‘they get back at each other’s throats’.
He also, most frighteningly, takes the time to inform us that President Trump gets reelected in 2020, and that human/AI relationships are a ‘thing’. He does not say whether the Korea situation is related to Trump or human/AI relationships.
Naturally, viewers on YouTube had a fair few questions for Noah, and obviously had their priorities in order:
Y don’t u ask who won the fifa world cup 2018???? [sic]
Do they have memes in 2120?
Is Dubstep still a thing in 2120?
I just want to ask him when Despacito 2 came out [sic]
Great to see the big questions being asked!
