The Philadelphia Experiment From A-Z

Questioning Their “Story”

There are a number of things that cast doubt on the validity of the account of the Montauk project. Aside from the sheer otherworldiness of most of the material, we note a few trends in the speeches and literature put out by the three Montauk protagonists:

“Upon visiting a doctor in 1988, Duncan’s doctor commented upon the unusual scar tissue in his lungs. Previous research in or about 1986 indicated the Duncan was actually brain dead.” – Preston Nichols[1]

“Back in the erly 1970’s, the Montauk group became interested in programming children.. Gray aliens picked up about fifty kids and delivered them to Montauk… in some cases, the older youths, ages 17-22 were also groomed to be slave workers… The programmers concentrated on three particular ages: 9, 14 and 19… They would put the kids in a room stark naked. Radio sensitive electronic paraphernalia was placed on their genitalia and a diabolic program was started where they would be treated brutally… These kids would be beaten to within inches of their lives until they ere mentally broken, consiousless hulks. Many died.” – Preston Nichols[2]

“..Some kids returned home, some didn’t. The kids chosen were between 10 and 16, or maybe 18… and 9 at the youngest. Most were just about to reach puberty… They ware blond, blue eyed, tall and light skinned. They fit the Aryan stereotype… there were no girls in this group… Montauk had a NeoNazi connection and the Nazis were still on the Aryan Kick.” – Preston Nichols[3]

“He {Stan Campbell} remembered waking up stark naked with his rear end up in the air. A lot of times different parts of his body would hurt. Three out of four days he was there, his anal opening hurt.” – Preston Nichols[4]

The above statements were quoted to show a pattern. If all information he conveys is true then there is nothing wrong with his descriptions. On the other hand, if he as created the story (as we fell he did) then the above statements show a sick man with bazaar fantasy about naked boys.

You would think that if Alfred Bielek was trying to unfold “the perfect hoax” why would he get into talking about things like “being trapped by aliens in time tunnels, being age-regressed back to one year old”, etc. One begins to think that the whole UFO angle could have been added just to make his lecture tour more “appetizing” to UFO groups.

 

EARTH: WISH YOU WERE HERE

According to Preston, the Montauk technology enabled Duncan at one point to travel to the underground pyramids on Mars. (What “underground pyramids on Mars”?? THE “underground pyramids on Mars!” Any other questions?) Duncan recalls seeing technology on Mars which he refers to as “The Solar System Defense.” The Montauk scientists (using Preston’s technology) supposedly “shut off the Solar System Defence Grid” retroactive to 1943. This claim, straight out of a Star Wars-type science fiction movie, means that some benevolent civilization long before us had set up a “defense” barrier so that “evil aliens” could not infiltrate our Solar System and invade us – and Preston shut it off! If we take this statement at face value we can come to only one conclusion: Anyone who has had a traumatic experience with UFO’s, e.g., an abduction, forced pregnancy, rectal exam, etc., could justifiably send “hate” mail to Preston Nichols, as he is directly responsible for the aliens being able to reach earth, by his own admission!

Also in Preston’s book, he writes “The first treaty between aliens and the U.S. Government was supposedly signed in 1913.” how is this possible as the “defense grid” was still activated (as he himself stated) and not shut off till 1943![5]

Preston blackmails the CIA to lay off of Peter Moon saying that he “would publish secret papers that they didn’t want published.” [6] I guess threating the CIA involves no Jail time in the U.S. any more. On another occasion Stan Campbell was being sued by the government, and Preston threaten the government that if Stan was locked up he would …go public on my involvement in the Moriches Bay UFO crash ( I helped to “Shoot” it down when I worked for BJM by jamming its drive with the appropriate frequencies — a whole other story.)”Preston Nichols[7]

I checked with some UFO groups about this proposed UFO crash, and to no surprise, it was a hoax.

Stan Campbell was sent on a Montauk time travel mission, “His mission, as he remembers it, is to go find Jesus and do two things. First, he’s supposed to remove a sample of blood and then he’s supposed to kill Him. He finds Christ.. He {Christ} even volunteers to give him the sample of blood… Operating on his orders from Montauk, Stan then reports on emptying a revolver into Christ…” [8]

Now if that doesn’t buy you some time in hell I guess nothing will. After Stan retuned to Montauk, he refused to give up the sample of Jesus’s blood.  The Montauk technicians sent him to Mars where he gave the blood to Duncan Cameron. The blood was later injected into Duncan.

INVALID REASONING

 

“Dan is a nuclear physicist and he said that the SAGE radar wouldn’t require all those amplitrons.” – Preston Nichols [9]

Although this sounds impressive, it holds about as much water as my friend the brain surgeon knowing why your car won’t start. Also let it be noted that somewhere, right now, there is a nuclear physicist struggling to program his or her DVR.

“Space-Time Labs, a fully equipped manufacture of psychic-active electronic equipment… Preston invited me to his lab that was a mixture of Tesla, von Neuman, Einstein and Montauk..” – Helga Marrow[10]

Again sounds impressive, views of a nice white rectangular building with weather/radar appendages protruding from the roof comes to mind. In reality as we have stated Space-Time Labs is just Preston’s decaying garage, stocked with some nice vintage radio receivers.

Preston seemingly grabs at straws, and provides the following statement as evidence to his ‘Dr. Rinehart is von Neumann’ claims:

“one of his {von Neumann’s} favorite desserts was strawberry ice cream. Ironically, this just happens to be the favorite of Dr. Rinehart!”- Preston Nichols[10a]

Preston forgets to mention that strawberry ice cream was also the favorite of Bill Cooper’s “Gray Aliens.” Hopefully the above does not replace DNA testing in court cases.

SUBTLE CHANGES IN THE STORY AS TIME PROGRESSES

 

Some names of the key players have changed. The things that some people have done have changed. For example:

The Jack Pruitt Story

In the original videotape we are told about an Air Force officer named Jack Pruitt, who allegedly oversaw the Montauk Project in its later stages and who had an office in the Pentagon. It was Pruitt, Preston Nichols informs us, who grabbed an axe and started chopping away frantically at the radar cables, as well as cutting the waveguides with a torch, in a last-ditch effort to cut the power to the project when “Junior” materialized and started eating everything on the base.

In later accounts, such as in Nichols’ books and video, it is Nichols himself who is cutting cables and torching waveguides. We never hear of Pruitt again. Of course, the “new believers” will not have heard the older version, and will not understand our objection.

When was the Eldridge modified?

In a conference lecture given by Al Bielek, he stated that the ship was modified before it was built to accommodate the equipment. In a more recent book, he states that the ship was modified after Von Neumann took control of the project (well after the Eldridge was constructed.)

“They decided they wanted to build a test vehicle from the ground up. So along about June or July they decided to go to the drawing boards to find out what ships were coming down the ways that might be suitable, that were going to be built, and they picked on “DE 173”… And in July they modified the drawings. Decided where they wanted the two generators. The reason why they had to do the modification, was the destroyer, the ‘DE’,  was a rather small ship. Its normal displacement was around 1500 tons not 30,000. Consequently they had to fit the equipment, which was quite heavy, very carefully. What they decided to do was to leave the forward gun turret off, and fill it in, and to leave a hole there, and the hole was for where the generators would go.” [11]

“Von Neumann was now in charge {around March 1942}, and he switched to a pulse modulation of energy. He lopped off a forward turret from the Eldridge so he could place two large generators in the hole.” [12]

ELDRIDGE SYSTEM POWER REQUIREMENTS

 

Can a Destroyer Escort power all the equipment Al Bielek’s states was used in the experiment?

A massive power deficiency exists based on the documentation of Bielek’s lectures. Considering that Bielek claims to have a PhD in some area of science, he should have caught the error. The following analysis may negate the implementation of the Eldridge system.

“..and the two generators remained essentially the same, 75 KVA each.” – Al Bielek

The total power available is: Pmax = VA x pf watts. Where P is the available power in watts, VA is the Volts x Amps at the generator output and pf is the power factor.  A multi-phase generator is assumed. Whenever a multi-phase generator is connected to a load and modulation of the load is present (It was stated that the transmitters were modulated), the efficiency of power transfer is decreased by the power factor. The pf can be from 0.9 to 0.5 for a modulated transmitter load. Assume a pf of 0.9. The total power available from the two generators is:  Pmax = 2 x 75,000 x 0.9 = 135,000 watts. Apparently there were two loads, The first:

 “The final version some 3,000 ‘6L6’ tubes were used to drive the field coils of the two generators, and that was an accurate rendition, by the way, perhaps not to the exact position, but actually in the sense that there were a large number of tubes, about 3,000 by count.” – Al Bielek

The total power available is: Pmax = VA x pf watts. Where P is the available power in watts, VA is the Volts x Amps at the generator output and pf is the power factor.

A multi-phase generator is assumed. Whenever a multi-phase generator is connected to a load and modulation of the load is present (It was stated that the transmitters were modulated), the efficiency of power transfer is decreased by the power factor. The pf can be from 0.9 to 0.5 for a modulated transmitter load. Assume a pf of 0.9. The total power available from the two generators is:  Pmax = 2 x 75,000 x 0.9 = 135,000 watts.

The primary power source is presumed to be the generators, though the rhetoric appears contradictory.  The load is presumed to be the 4 deck mounted coils (not the generators) which were driven by 3,000 6L6’s. The cathode power required for the 6L6 is 6.3vac at 0.9a or 5.67 watts.  A transformer converts the primary voltage to the cathode heater voltage level.  Transformer efficiency is about 0.9.  The generator power required for the cathodes is:

Pcathode = 3,000 x 5.67 / 0.9 = 18,900 watts.

The maximum 6L6 power output (Class A operation) is 17.5 watts.  The 6L6 Plate Efficiency is assumed to be the maximum available, 30%.  A power supply is required to convert the ac primary power to dc for the plate.  Power supply efficiency is about 80%.  The generator power required to drive the amplifiers is:

Pplate = 3,000 x 17.5/(0.3 x 0.8) = 218,750 watts.

The total 6L6 power required is:

P6L6 = Pcathode + Pplate = 18,900 + 218,750

= 237,650 watts.

“So various subsystems were tested; the generators, the RF transmitters. Tesla used three, Von Neumann went to four and he finally decided the power of the transmitters selected by Tesla, which were General Electric. The 500 kilowatt CW was not sufficient. He put boosters on them to raise each one to 2 megawatt CW and the two generators remained essentially the same, 75 KVA each. Fairly low frequency, motor driven, special synchronizing circuits to make sure the two generators were in absolute sync, otherwise it wouldn’t work. A special generator system was built with another very exotic device– it was inherited directly from Tesla– and that was the Zero Time Reference Generator.” – Al Bielek

Normally, transmitter power is given as the Effective Radiated Power (ERP) which includes antenna gain.  The photos of the mast mounted antennas do not show apertures that could exhibit any gain, but for the sake of argument, I will assume a 10 dB antenna gain for each transmitter.   A 2 megawatt CW transmitter is quite unusual.  Most transmitters of this power level are pulsed with duty cycles less than 10%.

However, CW was stated, so the total CW ERP from the 4 antennas is then 8*106 watts.  Removing the antenna gain, the antenna input or transmitter output power is then 8*105  watts.  There are two components to a transmitter: The power amplifier and the modulator.

The efficiency of the power amplifier is approximately 30% (given the benefit of the doubt).  This means that the dc input power required to drive the transmitters is 8x105/0.3 or 2.4x106 watts.  The modulator (amplitude or phase modulation) has about the same efficiency as the transmitter and takes approximately 1/100 of the power of the amplifier or 0.024x106 watts.  The dc power supplies that would drive the transmitter and modulator are about 80% efficient in converting primary power to dc power.  The primary generator power required to drive the transmitters and their modulators is therefor:

Pt = (2.4x106 + 0.024x106)/0.8 or 3.03 megawatts.

There is a significant discrepancy in available power: CW Power shortage = Pt + P6L6 – Pmax  watts

CW Power shortage = 3,030,000 + 237,650 – 135,000

 = 3,132,650 watts

If the transmitters were pulse modulated at 1% duty cycle, the average power required for the transmitters and modulators would be about 33,000 watts. There is still a power shortage:

Pulse Power Shortage = 135,000 – 33,000 – 237,650

= -135,650 watts.

The above figures do not include the losses incurred from the use of the motor driven synchronizing devices for the generators.

Where did the missing power come from if the experiment existed as outlined by Bielek?[13]

PUT UP OR SHUT UP!

 

These are just a few examples of the many little discrepancies that have shown up as we have followed the Nichols-Bielek-Cameron story over the last few years.

As has been stated elsewhere in this site, we need to bring the storytellers to account for their stories. If these three men are so close to the Philadelphia Experiment and Montauk Project as they claim, why is there always a drought when it comes to nuts-and-bolts, down-to-earth, hard-nosed technical information? Why can’t the reader go out tomorrow and build himself a replica of the Philadelphia Experiment in his basement, armed with concise, detailed how-to information? Why do we hear incredible stories of underground tunnels to the hollow earth, teleportation to Mars, solar-system defense grids, etc., ad nauseam, told with glib or nonchalant assuredness, as if this is the most common stuff around, yet we researchers can’t get a single straight answer out of any of them that doesn’t have some string attached, like when you buy a “rag” magazine because of its sensational cover, only to find out you’ve been cheated when you actually get to the article?
