Episode Summary

EDIT

Is it possible that ancient astronauts might actually be time travelers from our very own future? Is time travel more than just a theoretical possibility? And if so, what might human beings from the distant future look like?

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Narrator: January 30th, 1933, Berlin, Germany - Adolph Hitler and his Nazi Party take power and Albert Einstein flees to the United States. Fearing Hitler's rise to power, he warns the U.S. and the world of terrible dangers posed to humanity - especially if Nazi's were to acquire advanced technology. But by revealing to the world his breakthrough theories, might Einstein have accidentally helped the Nazi's build a time machine?

    • Childress: Throughout the Buddhist world, Buddhists build what they call Stupas. They look very much like the Nazi "Bell".
      Coppens: The Stupas, it is said that we can use this shape to somehow connect with the Gods. Now, when we put the practice of Kalachakra on this, what we are talking about is somehow a practice of transcending time.
      Barham: The Kalachakra teaching gives individuals actual practices and techniques to be able to step outside of time and to be able to move in time. So, it's entirely possible that the Nazi's were looking for secrets on how to travel in time.

    • Narrator: What if interstellar distances were too great, even for advanced extraterrestrial beings? Or might their level of technical sophistication be beyond our wildest dreams?
      Coppens: Simply because it is impossible to us doesn't mean it's impossible for everybody. And definitely when it comes to beings out there who are able to transcend this boundary of time, it is clear that they are not subject to time in the way we are subject to it.

    • Henry: Einstein's Theory of Relativity allowed for something called the Einstein-Rosen Bridge, which is what we today call a wormhole. It opened up the possibility that we can travel from point A on Earth to point B somewhere else in the universe as if there were nothing in-between.

    • Narrator: Ever since the infamous UFO incident of 1947 in Roswell, New Mexico, there have been thousands of reports of extraterrestrial sightings - and even first-hand accounts of alien abductions. Described as humanoids with large heads and small bodies, researchers believe these beings might, in fact, be an alien species that some call "the greys".
      Bara: These "aliens" look not too dissimilar from us. They have heads, they have hands, they have two arms, two legs, two eyes, a nose, a rudimentary mouth ... They certainly, in their descriptions, appear to be pretty close to us - or, what they kinda look like, is very, very early science fiction concepts of how the human race would eventually evolve over the eons.
      Barham: If you look at the extraterrestrials that are described (as) "the greys", that are related to the Roswell incident, you'll see that their forms in many ways resemble what we might project or predict that we could look like in the future - if we became a space-faring race.

    • Howe: What we do know is that the physics of our planet - quantum physics and string theory - have moved the ball so much further than it was in the last century, to saying there are no mathematical restrictions on time travel to the future or to the past. And that, once you know that the physics community is saying there are no restrictions, it's just us finding out how do we do this.
      Childress: Time travel is basically the same as teleportation. We could go from place to place on Earth in a matter of milliseconds. This would revolutionize all kinds of travel. At the same time, our connections between us and any other civilization - and including, civilizations on other planets, as well.
      Narrator: But just who really are these other-worldly creatures called "the greys"? Is it possible they came to Earth not from outer space, but from the future - or the past? Or might they actually be ... human time travelers?

    • Von Daniken: I rather am a believer in time travel. I say nothing will be impossible for us in the future. Even if you think it's completely crazy, it will happen. Whatever humans are able to think, to calculate, even to fantasize - will, one day, become reality.
