Time Travelers!

By Abigail Keathley

It is not hard to fathom that extraterrestrial life does exist; however, I find it unlikely that intelligent alien life exists. Plus, if those aliens are so smart, why would they want to interact with such a primitive species as humans in ancient times? Humans are more likely to want to interact with the past, because we want to know how we began. That’s why I think future humans are the more likely candidates for pyramid construction.

With the way we are advancing technologically, I think that it is not too far fetched that we might invent time travel in the near future. With the invention of high tech gadgets, like the air fryer, we are only baby steps away from unlocking the secret to going back in time. And when we have the ability to go back in time, who’s to say we won’t also have the means to build structures as precisely placed as the pyramids?

Now that you know how, the question you may be asking yourself is “why?” The answer is more simple than you might think: because we wanted to. Humans are impulsive creatures who often do things “just because”. That’s just human nature. Human nature is unavoidable. As long as we are physically able to do something, someone is going to want to do it.

“In the future, I have a feeling that people are going to be able to time travel,” sophomore McKenna O’Connor said. “I feel like aliens would not want to come down to Earth, because if they’re advanced enough to travel to our planet, there is no reason to see how stupid we are.”
