When announcing yourself to be a time traveller who has travelled backwards in time is it more proper to state "I come from the future" or "I will come from the future"?

As someone with a bit of knowledge on the subject, I can tell you that the technically correct tense structure would be "I willen haven coming asfrom the possible-future tonow."

However, in most cases it's more expedient to simply say "I wish to be confined to a comfortable room, to later meet with a member of this locality's psychiatric profession, if you please."
