Last year was a car crash, right? Well, here's some news that might leave you feeling unnerved. A woman on TikTok has revealed unsettling evidence that we're stuck in a time warp, and the year is still 2020. Watch the video below:
Jokingly telling viewers that she's 'not one for conspiracies', Sarah then whispers: "That's a lie. I love a good conspiracy.
"It makes me feel like I'm more sane hearing the crazy crazy things that people think."
Next, the video shows Sarah providing her evidence that we're trapped in a time warp, asking her phone: "Hey Siri, how many days until 2021?"
Siri's reply is clear: "It's 377 days until then."
Sarah explains: "For anybody watching this right now, it is January 28th of 2021. There are no days until 2021. We're in 2021!"
Many people have shared Sarah's astonishment. One TikToker said: "What in the hell!?!? My phone did it too! Wow," to which Sarah answered: "Crazy right!?!?!? I tried several phones."
You may be watching this and thinking it's absolute nonsense, because time warps are a ludicrous idea and time travel is just science fiction.
Well, hold on there a second - the latter may not be true.
Scientists from Australia say they have proven, at least, theoretically, that time travel is possible.
The physicists from the University of Queensland have resolved the issue by conciliating two conflicting theories.
Germain Tobar, who led the research, said: "As physicists, we want to understand the universe's most basic, underlying laws and for years I've puzzled on how the science of dynamics can square with Einstein's predictions."
Until Tobar's team discovery, Einstein's theory was in conflict with classical dynamics. Whereas Einstein's says that you could go back in time, classical dynamics says that you would cease to exist if you did that.
According to classical dynamics, a sequence of events can't be altered. If, say, a time traveller went back in time to kill the pandemic's first infected person, this would negate the very need for the time traveller to go back in the first place.
"In the coronavirus patient zero example, you might try and stop patient zero from becoming infected, but in doing so you would catch the virus and become patient zero, or someone else would," said Tobar.
He continued: "No matter what you did, the salient events would just recalibrate around you. This would mean that - no matter your actions - the pandemic would occur, giving your younger self the motivation to go back and stop it."
Maybe the time warp theory is so far-fetched after all.
