An official lie detector test could not refute the claims of a "time-traveler" who claims he is originally from the year 6491, but as his time machine broke down, he got stuck in the year 2018.

Paranormal experts say they were blown away when James Oliver told his story and even passed a lie detector test which showed that he was actually telling the truth.

According to the time-traveler, he lives more than centuries in the future but was sent back in time due to a tech-snafu.

Bizarre results came out when YouTube site ApexTV, which focuses on paranormal events, carried out an experiment on Oliver. 

Stunningly, he passed every question.

Many a time during the course of the interview, the video features odd edits and dubbing. The identities of both Oliver and the interviewer are concealed with the time-traveler's voice being morphed.

At the beginning of the interview, Oliver is asked to confirm if he has actually traveled back in time. He replies in a strange British accent: “Yes, I am an actual time traveler."


He is then asked for the whereabouts of his time-machine, to which he responds by saying, “I can’t tell you that."

Oliver claims that his years "are different" to earthly years, in part because his home planet is much further away from its star than the Earth is from the sun. According to him, the earthly equivalent to his time in years is the year 6491.

"Your years are different to mine," he says in an anonymous video, blurring his face in the interview.

"Where I'm from, the years are longer.

"My planet is further away from the sun than yours is, so it takes longer to get around.

“But we have very gifted mathematicians working day and night … to calculate the relationship between our years and the years of the various different planets and civilizations that we research. After those calculations are complete, I’m from your year 6491.”

While Oliver claims that he is from outer space, he has a strong Birmingham accent with a tinge of American.

He goes on to claim that there are constant fights coming between human beings and aliens in the life lightyears to come. Oliver also says that more planets and species have been discovered by then.


He said, "We are constantly finding new planets and galaxies every day. Most of it is just nothing."

"Sometimes you hit the jackpot and find intelligent life on it. You find new planets, new ecosystems."

"There are a lot of planets more intelligent than humans."

"There have been some conflicts, but most of it has been put under control by the federation very quickly."

"The federation is there as a peacekeeping vessel." 

According to Daily Mail, Oliver's story bears a close resemblance to the film plot of the Back to the Future storyline, where Marty McFly runs out of plutonium to fuel his time-traveling machine, an old DeLorean car, and is stuck in the 50s

Oliver says there is a United Nations style system of planetary leaders to ensure peace between the various worlds. He also said that global warming would only get worse over time and the Earth is going to experience a surge in temperatures.

According to him, it is a combined result of man-made emissions and the fact that the planet is “on a geological warming period”.


When asked what steps we can take to tackle the problem of global warming, Oliver interestingly asserts that the United States needs to get back on the Paris treaty and reduce carbon emissions.

He also says he has friends who belong to different planets in the future. 

He said, "The definition of alien is something out of this world, so technically, I am meeting one right now."

"I have, on occasion. But the only time I meet them is when I am at home."

"It's the same sort of thing. They travel to where I live and I do know them."

"I have personal relationships with a few of them, I have friends I'd consider aliens. They are a nice lot, they are. Don't be quick to judge foreign species."

"I have some who are quite good friends. My closest friend is from another galaxy."

Oliver claims that in the future, we would have our own personal Artificial Intelligence system called Siri — the name used by Apple for its operating systems assistant — which recognizes users by their voice.


Upon being asked whether he has ever had an encounter with an alien, he says, "Personally? Several times."

But when asked who the next US President would be, he tries to sidestep the question saying there is a "restriction as to what I can tell you about the future."

“I can’t disclose that with you, I’m sorry. It creates too big of a ripple to share that information with you.”

Oliver says that he chose ApexTV to share his story because they had a good reach and "quite the publicity." However, some critics have opined that the "interview" is simply a publicity gimmick.

The time-traveler misses his family and friends the most, according to the footage.

Oliver was allegedly telling the truth in response to every single question if results from the lie-detector test were to be believed.
