The woman’s incredibly bizarre confession tape has emerged online, uploaded to YouTube by paranormal channel ApexTV.
The video simply titled “Time Traveler Took This Selfie in The Year 3800…” has blurred out her face and distorted her voice, but it is her spoken confession that is of greatest interest.
In the video, the woman who claims to be in Albania, introduces herself as Bella and reveals memories of “secret technologies and time travelling”.
At some point in the last decade, she claims to have met a Belarusian physicist Alexander Kozlov, who has cracked the secret of time travel.
It is this man who sent her to the year 3800, where she supposedly took the picture of the future world.
Describing her experience of travelling through time in Mr Kozlov’s time machine, she says: “I felt a very strong current voltage in body. Everything was black in my eyes and around me.
“When I opened my eyes, I expected to appear in a new wonderful place with nice trees, flying machines but I saw ruined buildings, corpses of people, destroyed gadgets, robots all damage.
“That stupid man sent me to the terrible time. Very terrible time so it was very ugly and horrible place.
Time travel SHOCK: This woman claims she took the photo in the far future
“I began walking along ruins. Don’t know why I was eager to travel by time machine. I want to take photos when I dreamt about my travelling. I wanted to have those photos as evidence.
“Alexander couldn’t even imagine that I had a phone with a camera in it as in 2007. It was not so circulated and common as now.”
At this stage Bella pulls out the alleged photo she took in the year 3800 with her mobile phone.
The incredibly sketchy picture appears to show the chin and lips of a woman standing against the backdrop of some futuristic looking structures and lights in the distance.
Describing the terrifying image, Bella claims it portrays a “flying destroyed robot shooting lasers”.

The reason why the image is terrifying is because at some point in the future, the world will be overtaken by killer robots and rogue AI wreaking havoc on humanity.
The supposed time traveller even recounts meeting one of these cold killer machines – an event which has imprinted on her memory.
She says in the video: “A robot was so terrible, he was made of metal and his fist was made of silicone.

“He had facial expressions, gestures. I want you to imagine a metal man, incredibly strong without the feeling of pity.
“He asked me in an angry voice where I was from. I kept silent.”
But why has she kept this unprecedented discovery to herself for more than a decade?
Bella claims to have considered taking the story to the press and TV but ultimately realised despite her best efforts to break the silence, “nothing would be changed”.
As incredible as this testimony sounds it is just as incredibly questionable and more likely than not an online hoax.
Unless Mr Kozlov has figured out a way to re-write the laws of physics, scientists agree there is no known way to travel through time.
According to Professor William Hiscock, of Montana State University, humans do not have the technology to successfully move backwards through time and space.
Time travel SHOCK: Bella’s claims are very suspicious and most likely a hoax
The scientist explained: “Time travel into the past, which is what people usually mean by time travel, is a much more uncertain proposition.
“There are many solutions to Einstein’s equations of General Relativity that allow a person to follow a timeline that would result in her or him encountering herself – or her grandmother – at an earlier time.
“The problem is deciding whether these solutions represent situations that could occur in the real universe, or whether they are mere mathematical oddities incompatible with known physics.”
