An anonymous man who claims he risked his life to travel from the year 2030 to warn us in 2018 of what is to come has allegedly passed a lie detector test that quizzed him on the experience.
The mystery time-traveller, who goes by the pseudonym Noah, appears in a video posted by YouTube channel Apex TV with his voice and face obscured.
Noah says he has evidence of his claims but cannot give any of it because of a "paradox" - though many people believe the whole thing is made up.

In the video, he alleges artificial intelligence will take over the world within the next 12 years and that Donald Trump will get re-elected as US President in 2020 and change his name to Ilana Remikee. Noah does not provide a rationale for why Mr Trump will make the change.
His claims have made headlines around the world, but Apex TV, which describes itself as "one of the biggest voices of paranormal on YouTube", has a reputation for making outlandish claims based on questionable footage.
At the end of last year, they claimed to have captured video of five real-life Grim Reapers, five statues moving and two weeks ago posted an interview with another 'time-traveller' from the year 8973.
In its newest video, however, Noah is alleged to be hooked up to a lie detector machine as he explains that Bitcoin will be widely used, climate change will cause North America to heat up and Europe to cool, and that humans will be able to fly to Mars.
Some cancer types have been cured, he adds, and electric cars are available and can travel nearly 1000km on a single charge.
While no lie detecting hardware can be seen in the video, there is a graphic that appears on the screen that says 'true', which Apex TV says confirms Noah genuinely believed what he was saying.
The lack of a viewable lie detector machine has caused many to doubt whether Apex TV did actually conduct any test checking the voracity of his claims. The original YouTube video's comments section is littered with skeptics.
