John Titor predictions

I first read about John Titor some ten years ago. It has always intrigued me the future he described. Although it is most likely a hoax, I can see that many of the so called predictions are manifested from what was spoken of.

John Titor was a fake name for someone calling himself a time traveler in 2000-2001 on some BBS groups. I'm curious what you guys know/think. If nothing else, the future he describes and the world events after 9/11 are quite uncanny in many ways. The author also has a very libertarian nature and speaks of the constitution quite often.

This thread is off-topic, but I was just home tonight and wanted to see what others thought. So much of what is stated just seems to have so many elements of truth to them that it's difficult to believe they were all written about/predicted by a single person. Especially when he mentions the whole world would never be the same after 2008 w/o any specifics - (e.g. bailouts/bubbles/economy), and a linconesque character as President after the 2005 period; also the fact that he speaks of all the civil liberty restrictions and how people start uprisings and want their liberty back.

I also heard

about this about 10 years ago. It was quite exciting when it was all happening. After his posts ended, I got a copy of the book, and regret tossing it, as it's gone for a pretty penny on eBay.

Yes a lot of the things that Titor said would happen in the future have, but many have not - such as a big outbreak of Mad Cow disease.

It was a compelling story, though.

"Now for the physics: The

'Now for the physics: The grandfather paradox is impossible. In fact, all paradox is impossible. The Everett-Wheeler-Graham or multiple world theory is correct. All possible quantum states, events, possibilities and outcomes are real, eventual and occurring. The chances of everything happening someplace at sometime in the superverse is 100%. (For all you scientists out there, if Schrödinger's cat had a time machine, he might not be in the box at all.)

Therefore, there is a worldline where you are alive and another where you have gone back in time to kill your relative.

Differences between worldlines are measured from the perspective of the time traveler in terms of divergence percentage. The higher the divergence, the more "un-like" your destination worldline looks like compared to your worldline of origin.

Therefore, any "prediction" I might make has a slight chance of being incorrect anyway and you now have the ability to act on it based on what I've said. Can you stop the war before it gets here? Sure. Will you do it? Probably not.'


IAW Titor's comments, there's apparently a 2 % divergence in world lines with his GE machine. From his comments, this alleged divergence is relative to the original world line or 2036 in his case. If one reads through all of his comments, he seems to correctly gauge the general direction of the world even though his dates aren't accurate. For example, could his date of 2004 (alleged start of civil disorder) actually be 2012 or so? Only time will tell, but I won't flippantly dismiss Titor's remarks because of errors in dates. If his comment regarding his age at the time of 2001 is correct, then he'll be ~ 17 years of age this year of 2014.

Although meant in jest at least partly, Ben's comment reminded me of some of the predictions of John Titor. I literally had goosebumps on the arms after seeing his suggestion. You must know some of the predictions of John Titor to truly comprehend the ramifications of Ben's suggestion.
