Mysterious TikTok account follows equations from a homeless man who is building a ‘time machine’

A mysterious TikTok account concerning a homeless man who has been making intricate drawings on the side of a building has people convinced he’s a time traveller and things only get weirder from there.

An account known only as @comeatmebhai has amassed millions of views on its videos and more than 168,000 followers but only has four clips.

The first video shows what appears to be a homeless man who has apparently draw dozens of illustrations on a building in an unidentified city. The draws are very detailed and intricate and appear to contain multiple equations. The caption for the video asks: “Homeless man building time machine?”


The second video on the account then claims to show ‘evidence’ and presents to the camera several receipts that have dates on them from the year 2046. One of the receipts makes reference to Neuralink, Elon Musk’s ‘brain chip’ start-up company.


The third and fourth videos on the account show whoever is filming the clips research a story published in the LA Times in August 1854 about another man drawing obscure illustrations on a building. The video then shows the person travelling to some unspecified ‘ruins’.


The fourth and thus far final video shows the person venture into a cave for more than nine hours and finds some more equations and coordinates which apparently pointed them towards a nearby house on a beach. The video ends on a cliffhanger as the person prepares to enter the house.


We have to say that this all seems very creative but people aren’t convinced by what they are seeing. One person said in response to one of the clips: “I’m an engineer and even the simple equations he wrote down don’t make sense and are wrong.” Another echoed these thoughts: “Literally doesn’t mean anything. Not even any numbers it’s just random shapes.”

However, someone decided to play devil’s advocate by saying: “What if the calculations are twisted and correct, and we just haven’t discovered it yet. Prolly in the future we do.”

One person was just happy to go along for the ride by writing: “Either he’s a masterful creative genius or he’s about to uncover something unbelievable...either way I’m in.”

Guess we’ll just have to stay tuned to see what happens next.
