Time travel is something that we can’t get our heads around it. Scientific theories are attempting to describe the conditions under which time travel could happen. If the “mechanics” of time travel can clarified then we might be able to repeat it in a systematic way. It is unlikely that we are told everything about scientific advances in time travel. Time travel would be a powerful and any serious advances in time travel are kept secret.
Every now and again testimonies of spontaneous time travel come to surface. An intriguing time slip case is mentioned in the book “The Little Giant Book of Eerie Thrills and Unspeakable Chills” written by John Macklin, Ron Edwards, C.B. Colby.
According to the authors in 1932 the news paper reporter J. Bernard Hattan and the photographer Jochim Brandt were assigned to do a feature story on the Hamburg shipyard in Germany. They went to the huge complex, interviewed many officials and workers and completed the assignment by afternoon.
As they were making their move out of the shipyard complex they started to hear the sounds of air craft engines and saw a sky full of air bombers. Anti Aircraft Batteries started firing and bombs began to blast. Suddenly the shipyard had become a war zone: buildings were collapsing, everywhere death and chaos.
Before rushing out to save their lives, Hutton came across a security guard and asked him whether they could help in any way but they were asked to leave the place immediately. Once they reached reached Hamburg, things changed. The sky cleared and all returned to normality, no violence or blood; buildings looked fine. No one seemed frightened. It was as if nothing had ever happened. When Hutton and Brandt turned towards the shipyard, everything looked intact and normal. No destruction or smoking buildings.
The newspaper office surely did not believe them. The photographs taken at the time of the witnessed attack were now seen normal. The shipyard looked good as new. Nobody believed them.
Later Bernard Hutton went to London just before the beginning of Second World War. In 1943 one morning, his heart stopped when he read the news in the morning paper. It was a story about a successful RAF bombing of Hamburg. The news were describing exactly what Hutton and Brandt had experienced 11 years before in Hamburg.
