To Catch a Time Traveler
Advertisement
If time travel is possible, we will probably be able to prove it before this thread is over.

http://books.google.com/

This is a hypothetical example of what we might look for:

Suppose that a time traveler visits 1816. They go to a tavern, have a few drinks, and get into some trivial conversations with people from the century. A farmer mentions difficulties with garnering the years' crops due to the Year Without a Summer. In a drunken stupor, the time traveler says it must be "The Day After Tomorrow" due to the climate change difficulties.

Despite the blunder, the Time Traveler's cover wouldn't be blown by this. No one in 1816 knows that The Day After Tomorrow is a movie. However, we do know what The Day After Tomorrow is, and if we were to see 19th century usage of 'The Day After Tomorrow' in reference to a changing climate, severe winter, or draught, it could well be evidence of time travel.

What we're looking for are modern words or expressions that are being used as loan words in the past. 18th, 19th, and even 20th century writers may have encountered such time travelers and incorporated future-words into their vocabulary. The specific definitions such words or expressions might change, but as long as usage has a relatively similar meaning, it definitely merits further investigation!

I've seen some minor evidence that this might be occurring through my usage of Google Books, but no smoking gun as of yet. I haven't found anything that couldn't just be an entirely logical early coining of a word. I'm hoping you all will help me find something interesting here!

This is really interesting. Finding anomalies where there shouldn't be. I'd say it's worth a shot.

The problem with this idea is that once the phrase was picked up in the past you would never know that it wasn't started in the past. That's how time works.

A Time Traveler Would Have to Be Caught!
Its not like they are going to stand up and Scream Here I Am.

Someone from the Future would be worried about being apprehended by the government and SQUEEZED For Afore Knowledge! Someone from the past maybe
not so much.

Shouldn't we travel to the future to change in the present what we need in the future.

I mean, there's no turning back.
