Make sure you don’t have any major plans set for August 11 because, apparently, aliens are going to land on Earth and start an intergalactic war.

Those aren’t our words but the words of TikTok user @aesthetictimewarper, or Aery Yormany, who claims to be a time traveller from the year 2714. Yep... it’s one of those stories.

According to our intrepid traveller from the future, we have been told to look out for “something amazing” that is due to happen on 11th August as Earth passes through the Perseid meteor shower.

The ‘time traveller’ writes: “There will be a very large meteor shower that lasts for two weeks, it will be seen in the Northern hemisphere, containing the Nozic message.”

There is no real explanation of what the Nozic message is but they add: “One of the meteors will seem different than all the others, that is because it is a ship landing on Earth, starting preparations for the first Nozic War.”

In another post, they claim that the so-called ‘Nozic war’ will kick-off between the aliens and humanity in 2025 and good news; humanity wins “but at a large cost.” Still, with a four year headstart, we should be fine.

Also, the Perseid Shower isn’t a rare phenomenon. It literally happens every August and is viewed by millions of astrologers around the world.

These fascinating glimpses into the future don’t stop there either. The ‘time traveller’ also predicts that the lost city of Atlantis will be discovered in 2022, the colonization of Mars will begin by 2028 and that people will start using Elon Musk’s Neuralink to extend the lifespan of their minds.

You have to say that people’s imagination really is quite something. You’d almost be willing to believe @aesthetictimerwarper until you realise they are spreading misinformation about the Covid vaccines on their account too.

Despite all this, the account has more than 625,000 followers and has amassed more than four million likes on TikTok. That being said the majority of people are very sceptical of the account and have asked things like: “How about this guy shows us what he looks like?” and “Nothing he’s said has come true. Tell us something legit.” One person also asked why as a time traveller they would travel so far back into the past to just set up a TikTok account...

This is just another example of bogus TikTok accounts pretending to be time travellers or showing supposed “evidence” of time travel. Last week an account went viral after claiming it had found a homeless man who was building a time machine.

People often say don’t believe everything you see on the internet and, unless humanity has made the first contact with an alien lifeforce by this time tomorrow, then you can scratch this one off too.

Update: August 11th has passed and there are no signs of any aliens landing on Earth. @aesthetictimewarper is yet to post another video about why nothing happened but the peak of the shower isn’t until 12th August so who knows.
