Mr Archie “Racer” Carmichael who was driving from Birmingham to London in 1953 when he stopped for a drink in a Cotswold village near Borton-on-the-Water. He parked his Austin-Healy 100/4 outside the local pub and entered for a drink. He was shocked when the he found the people inside the bar looked as if they were from an earlier century. His cautious attempts to communicate were ignored and after a few minutes the scene dissolved and Archie found himself being asked if he was alright by a worried looking barman. It seems that he thought he had seen ghosts but was probably experiencing a time slip.
Time slips occur when a current time (now) interlaces with a previous time (then) and can be experienced by the person from the more recent time. However, the event is usually unnoticed by the people from the earlier time. According to most accounts, time slips usually lasts for only a few seconds and the human brain does its best to filter out these anomalies. Over the years people have claimed that they’ve seen old airplanes parked in fields that were once airports or roman soldiers marching down their road.
According to great scientists such as Albert Einstein, time is not as stable as most of us think. As humans we’re adjusted to time and our evolution has established tricks to allow our conscious minds to deal with it but in reality it’s a slippery concept. Some other cases of time slips are mentioned below:-
- This story is about two students who enjoyed spending time in a cemetery, studying Latin writings from ancient graves and other interesting monuments found there. One day, while they were translating a text from inside a crypt, one of them disappeared in front of the other one’s eyes. The second student looked for his friend in vain; later, he ran to the police and told them that his friend simply disappeared. The policemen did not believe him and thought that he murdered his friend and hid his body somewhere in the cemetery. So they went there looking for the missing student or signs of his murder. They found nothing, and because there was no proof to support the murder theory, the young man was not arrested. Some time later, the student decided to go and take another look at the crypt where his friend vanished and while he was looking around he found a writing underneath the one they were studying. It was from his friend, who traveled back in time and was not able to come back. Of course, the student ran to the police once again and just like the first time they did not believed him. They thought that he was the one who wrote the message, in order to support his theory. But the writing looked to be ancient, which puzzled the policemen even more. So they asked a specialist to come and date the writing, and the results were bone chilling. The student was telling the truth.

- Filmmaker George Clarke from Belfast thinks he’s come across something quite interesting — a women talking on a cell phone in 1928. The filmmaker shows the evidence in a YouTube video, taken from footage on a DVD of the premiere of Charlie Chaplin’s The Circus at Graumann’s Chinese Theatre in 1928, it looks like a woman is walking along the street at the premiere, with her hand held up to her ear as if she’s talking into a phone. But of course, there were no mobile phones in 1928 and we can clearly see her talking into the device. So what if she was experiencing a time slip ?
