Every once and a while, something comes along on the internet that totally blows everybody’s mind. Like the white and gold/blue and black #dressgate incident, or that time everyone wondered how a dog would wear pants. Now, the latest thing that’s breaking the internet is an algebra textbook. Why? Because it might prove that time travel exists.

It all started when @riarklerise tweeted a picture of the math book in question. Notice anything interesting about it?

The students on the cover of the textbook are HOLDING THE TEXTBOOK that they’re on the cover of. How is that even possible? We’re guessing it was a clever Photoshop job, but some people are convinced otherwise.

And then, out of nowhere, someone found the original photo. Confirmed a Photoshop job, and not proof of time travel.

Oh, the magic of the internet.
