by Preston B. Nichols and Peter Moon Seventh
Co-author of the Montauk Series, Peter Moon is a writer who has a unique talent for blending the bizarre into normal reality and conveying it in simple language that can be understood. He began studying the esoteric tradition as a young man which led to many personal spiritual discoveries. This led him on a path to the enigmatic L. Ron Hubbard who he served as a personal confidante aboard the former’s mystery yacht Apollo.
Learning the basic secrets of Scientology, which included the precise study of how to clear up implants, Peter Moon ignited factors in his own life that would take him away from organized Scientology and lead to more bizarre adventures yet. His study of Hubbard’s pre-Scientology life led him to the work of Aleister Crowley whereupon he began to traffic with some of the most interesting occultists in the world, and more importantly, the discovery of a real life implant station at Montauk Point, New York.
He found out about this remarkable information from Preston Nichols, a scientist who actually worked at the implant station and told fascinating and detailed accounts of time travel experimentation. Their collaborations are now historic and they have since completed a total of six books including:
Peter Moon continues to study and write and lives in the New York metropolitan area.
Preston Nichols is a multi-talented individual whose credits include a Bachelor of Science degree from Tampa University and a legendary career in the recording industry where he was one of the original owners of Buddah records and was affectionately known as “Little Buddha” for his uncanny ability to produce hit records. For Phil Spector, he created the premier recording studio in the world in the 1960s and had the opportunity to work with the top recording acts of the day.
In the 1970s Preston went to work in the defense industry where his genius knowledge of electronics made him invaluable for various top secret projects for the better part of twenty years. His vast experience and expertise in electronics make him a sought after commodity in the government sector to this day. His contacts in the intelligence community and “secret government” foster considerable intrigue and have prompted many legends. In the past, he has been sought as an expert on UFOs and has been called repeatedly by various media concerns.
Today, Preston is primarily known for his uncovering of the Montauk Project, a top-secret project which sought to manipulate the minds of our entire population and harness the forces of time itself.
Often controversial, but always intriguing, Preston lives on Long Island and works as a private contractor to industry. He also continues his research into the functions of time.
He has collaborated with Peter Moon on six books including: The Montauk Project: Experiments in Time, Montauk Revisited: Adventures in Synchronicity, Pyramids of Montauk: Explorations in Consciousness, Encounter in the Pleiades: An Inside Look at UFOs, The Black Sun: Montauk’s Tibetan-Nazi Connection, and The Music of Time.
THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT
The origin of the Montauk Project dates back to 1943 when radar invisibility was being researched aboard the USS Eldridge. As the Eldridge was stationed at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, the events concerning the ship have commonly been referred to as the “Philadelphia Experiment.” Having been the subject of different books and a movie, only a quick synopsis will be given here.
The Philadelphia Experiment was known as the Rainbow Project to those who manned and operated it. It was designed as a top secret project that would help end World War II. The forerunner of today’s stealth technology, the Rainbow Project was experimenting with a technique to make a ship invisible to enemy radar. This was done by creating an “electromagnetic bottle” which actually diverted radar waves around the ship. An “electromagnetic bottle” changes the entire electromagnetic field of a specific area — in this case, the field encompassing the USS Eldridge.
While the objective was to simply make the ship undetectable by radar, it had a totally unexpected and drastic side effect. It made the ship invisible to the naked eye and removed it from the space-time continuum. The ship suddenly reappeared in Norfolk, Virginia, hundreds of miles away.
The project was a success from a material standpoint, but it was a drastic catastrophe to the people involved. While the USS Eldridge “moved” from the Philadelphia Naval Yard to Norfolk and back again, the crew found themselves in complete disorientation. They had left the physical universe and had no familiar surroundings to relate to. Upon their return to the Philadelphia Navy Yard, some were planted into the bulkheads of the ship itself. These who survived were in a mental state of disorientation and absolute horror.
The crew were subsequently discharged as “mentally unfit” after having spent considerable time in rehabilitation. The status of “mentally unfit” made it very convenient for their stories to be discredited.
This put the Rainbow Project at a standstill.
Although a major breakthrough had occurred, there was no certainty that human beings could survive further experimentation. It was too risky. Dr. John von Neumann, who headed the project, was now summoned to work on the Manhattan Project. This concerned the making of the atom bomb, which became the weapon of choice for ending World War II.
Although it is not well known, vast research that began with the Rainbow Project was resumed in the late 1940’s. It continued on, culminating with a hole being ripped through space-time at Montauk in 1983.
The goal of this book is to give you a general understanding of the research and events subsequent to the Philadelphia Experiment and up to 1983 at Montauk. I will begin by telling you how I, Preston Nichols, stumbled across it.
In 1973, I began working for BJM, a well known defense contractor on Long Island. Through the years, I got a degree in electrical engineering and became a specialist in electromagnetic phenomena. I was not then aware of the Philadelphia Experiment or its accompanying phenomena. Although I was not extraordinarily interested in the paranormal at that time, I had obtained a grant to study mental telepathy and to determine whether or not it existed. I sought to disprove it, but I was surprised to find out that it did, in fact, exist.
I began my research and found out that telepathic communication operated on principles that we strikingly similar to that of radio waves. I had discovered a wave that could be termed a “telepathic wave.” In some respects, it behaved like a radio wave. I sent out to get the characteristics of this “telepathic wave.” I studied their wave lengths and other pertinent facts. I determined that while a telepathic wave behaves like a radio wave, it isn’t exactly a radio wave. Although it propagates in a similar fashion to that of electromagnetic waves and possesses like properties, not all of these fit into normal wave functions.
I found all of this very exciting. I had discovered a whole brand new electromagnetic function that was not in any of the text books I’d ever seen. I wanted to learn as much as I could and studied all the activities that might use this type of function. My interest into metaphysics had been launched.
I continued to research in my spare time and collaborated with different psychics to test and monitor their various responses. In 1974, I noticed a peculiar phenomena that was common to all of the psychics that I worked with. Every day, at the same hour, their minds would be jammed. They couldn’t think effectively.
Suspecting that the interference was caused by an electronic signal, I used my radio equipment and correlated what came on over the air waves at the times the psychics were non-functional. Whenever a 410-420 MHz (Megahertz) cycle appeared on the air, they were jammed. When the 410-420 MHz cycle was off, the psychics would open back up after about twenty minutes. It was obvious that this signal was greatly impeding the ability of the psychics.
I decided to trace this signal. Placing a modified TV antenna on the roof of my car, I grabbed a VHF receiver and set out looking for the source of it. I tracked it right to Montauk Point. It was coming directly from a red and white radar antenna on the Air Force base.
At first, I though that this signal might have been generated accidentally. I checked around and found out that the base was still active. Unfortunately, security was tight and the guards wouldn’t give any useful information.
They said that the radar was for a project run by the FAA. I couldn’t press the point beyond that. In fact, their statement didn’t make a lot of sense. This was a World War II radar defense system known as “Sage Radar.” It was totally antiquated, and there is not any known reason why the FAA would need such a system. I didn’t believe them but couldn’t help being intrigued. Unfortunately, I had hit a dead end.
I continued my psychic research, but didn’t get anywhere on the investigation of the Montauk antenna until 1984, when a friend of mine called. He told me the place was now abandoned, and that I should go out there and check it out. I did. It was indeed abandoned with debris strewn everywhere. I saw a fire extinguisher left amidst many scattered papers. The gate was opened as were the windows and doors of the buildings. This is not the way the military normally leaves a base.
I strolled around. The first thing that caught my eye was the high voltage equipment. I was very interested as it was a radio engineer’s delight. I am a collector of ham gear and radio equipment, and I wanted to buy it. I figured it would be available cheap if I made the proper arrangements through the Surplus Disposal Agency in Michigan.
After examining all the equipment, I contacted the disposal agency and spoke to a friendly lade. I told her what I wanted, and she told me she would see what could be done. It appeared to be abandoned material and looked like a scrap contract. If this was so, I’d be able to take what I wanted. Unfortunately, I didn’t hear from her so I called her back three weeks later. She informed me that there had not been any success with tracing the equipment. They couldn’t find out who owned it. Neither the military or the GSA (General Services Administration) claimed to know anything about it. Fortunately, the Surplus Disposal Agency said they would continue to track the matter further. After another week or two went by, I called her back. She said she’d turn me over to a John Smith (fictitious name), located at a military overseas terminal in Bayonne, New Jersey.
I met John Smith. He didn’t want to discuss anything on the phone. He said that no one officially admitted to owning that equipment. As far as they were concerned, the equipment was abandoned and I could go in and take whatever I wanted. He gave me a piece of paper which appeared to be official and said to show it to anyone who might question my presence in the area. It was not an official document nor was it registered with anybody, but he assured me that it would keep the police off my back.
He also referred me to the caretaker of the Montauk Air Force Base who would show me around.
