    George Clark, a filmmaker in Ireland, discovered the anomaly in the Charlie Chaplin film “The Circus,” which was filmed in 1928. He noticed in the DVD extras, according to CBS, a most unusual image. The clip in question of people attending the premiere of the film at the then Grauman’s Chinese Theater, the famous Hollywood venue, now Mann’s Chinese Theater. While people are hustling, bustling and hob-nobbing among themselves, a woman walks through the frame, appearing to hold a cellular phone. The clip shows the woman in detail, and it does look like it could be a time traveler caught on film. However, there are a few unfortunate hitches in the theory.

    The YouTube clip has over 1.5 million views. In the video, 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.

    Traveling through time is theoretical. It has never been proved, in any meaningful sense, to be possible. So far, the leading idea is that a “wormhole” would have to be tunneled from one point in space and time to another. It works fine on paper but hasn’t been proven. Assuming that time travel is possible, how is a cellular phone supposed to work in 1928? There wasn’t even FM radio yet. Since the time traveler is entirely theoretical, perhaps it’s a Verizon iPhone, or even a Verizon white iPhone 4 from the future. (Those also aren’t proven to exist, either.)​

    Then big question raised in movies like Back to the Future, is what happens if you meet your teenage mother before you're born and she falls in love with you. Well, you're in deep doo-doo if that happens. How do you resolve the paradox? The answer is quite simple. If the river of time forks and you get into the hot tub, you're basically meeting someone else's teenage mother who looks like your teenage mother, but it's not really your own. You've opened up a parallel quantum reality and so even though that person looks like your mother, or your friend's mother, it's not. That's how scientists can resolve all time travel paradoxes. If the river of time forks into two rivers, and your time machine allowed you to jump stream, from one stream to the next, but your stream is fixed, you cannot change your own past. You're changing somebody else's past.
