Information about myself (Andrew H. Hochheimer)

The Philadelphia Experiment Time Line

With all the different sources of information available on the PX (over 65 books, tapes, etc.) one begins to look at all the dates, and wonder if they all “jive?” This time line was created to give the reader an overall picture of events that took place. From a fire in the Eldridge’s Galley, to every four hrs of the day to day running of the ship are detailed.

A Matter of Time

In the legend of the Philadelphia Experiment two dates are presented as being the date of the main “deadly” experiment, this chapter explores all the sources and dates given.

Carlos Miguel Allende or Carl Meredith Allen or..

Information on Carl Allen, his strange history, his involvement in the Philadelphia Experiment, and some NEVER published before accounts of what he seen while viewing the Experiment.

Dr? Morris K. Jessup

This section addresses a lot of opposing information published about Mr. Jessup; Was he ever officially awarded his Ph. D. or was he as a few books state “a Used Auto Parts Salesman.” Was Morris Jessup ‘Troubled’ just Before he ‘committed suicide’ or was the world ‘His Oyster?’ Did Jessup die in the park or in his own garage? Was his drunk at the time?

The Varo Edition

This section covers the mysteriously annotated copy of Mr. Jessup’s book, “The Case for the UFO” that was mailed to Admiral N. Furth, Chief of the Office of Naval Research, with a mysterious “HAPPY EASTER” written on the manila envelope. The unknown commentators implied knowledge of UFO’s and their propulsion systems, and of at least two different alien races.

Dr. Rinehart- Was that Reno or Von Neumann?

The name Dr. Rinehart first appeared in the fiction novel “Thin Air” by George E. Simpson and Neil R. Burger. Dr. Rinehart was later used by Bill Moore as a pseudonym for a scientist that had worked on some early calculations (possibly used in an experiment) on the bending of light. Alfred Bielek and Preston Nichols contend that Dr. Rinehart was actually John von Neumann (much to our amusement.) This section will examine the various comments made in regards to Dr. Rinehart.

Ships of the Experiment

A number of ships are described as being part of, or witness to, the Philadelphia Experiment. This section will discuss the various ships in detail, and their alleged involvement in the experiment.

Effects of the Experiment on the Crew

The after effects of the experiment are discussed.

Evidence of Teleportation?

This chapter covers such topics as: The “witnesses”, Effects of teleportation, Some afterthoughts on our witnesses.

Will The Real People Involved Please Stand Up

This section is a list of a few (over fifty) people that were said to be in some way involved in the experiment by various individuals. It also encompasses people that have researched the experiment. This list is by no means complete as the list of players continues to grow, and somehow change in the field of a witness’s ‘dream.’

The Navy Investigates Magnetism and Gravity

Navy has investigated and supported the scientific study into Magnetism and Gravity. This chapter includes information on PROJECT MAGNET

“The Philadelphia Experiment” The Movies

“Reportedly based on a true incident during World War II involving an anti-radar experiment that caused a Naval battleship to disappear in Virginia…” 3½ Stars (rated Between Good and Very Good) “Video Movie Guide 1994” By Mic Martin & Marsha Porter, Pg 1032. This chapter discusses some of the following: Interview quotes from Doug Curtis producer of the PX.

“The Philadelphia Experiment” In Popular Culture

this is a reference to other Movies, TV, Books, Music, and Games that incorporated the story of the PX to some degree.

The UFO Connection

Discusses possible connections between Ufology and the Philadelphia Experiment.

The Soviet Version of the Philadelphia Experiment

What does submarines, electro-magnetic equipment and Mobius Strips have in common? They are all key elements in the Soviet version of the PX.

The Montauk Project: Experiments in Gullibility

Covers the ever evolving Montauk Project, including topics like: What connection does The Montauk Project have with the PX?, A trip inside Montauk AFB, A visit to Preston’s “Space Time Labs”, Montauk videos & books, Mars, Is the government erasing Montauk, Subtle changes in the story as time progresses, Was there a Montauk Project?

The Montauk Project Time Line

A breakdown of dates given.

The Unified Field Theory

This chapter explains the Theory in detail, rather then most books assuming you (a) already know it, or worse (b) not intelligent enough to grasp it.

Possible Science Behind the Experiment

In this chapter we explore the possibility that the Philadelphia Experiment really happened as described in the popular accounts. If it did take place, we had better have some scientific explanation for it, because if the PX is for real, then it goes without saying that somebody, somewhere, didn’t leave it alone after the 1943 disaster, but has since gone on to develop this thing into a new technology that will have an undeniable impact on our lives. Example of some of the topics covered: Did the Philadelphia Experiment actually take place?, Which were they trying to accomplish: radar or optical invisibility?, What is refraction? What is magnetorefraction?, What is phase conjugation?, What is resonance?, What is magnetic resonance? How can magnetism be “resonant”?, Decay vs. spin pumping, What kind of equipment was used aboard ship to perform the PX?, What has radar got to do with the PX?, How does radar work? and what is radar invisibility?, What part did Einstein’s relativity play in the PX?, What part do theories of “multiple dimensions” play in the PX?, Was time travel involved in the Philadelphia Experiment?

How To Create Optical Invisibility

Discusses Mirages, and a number of ways to create Optical Invisibility.
