Just this past autumn, I was alerted to a HUGE new development in the story of the Philadelphia Experiment. Yesterday I found the documentation!




As you may already know, Thomas Townsend Brown has an interesting story — he is one of the secret fathers of antigravity technology. The reason why his name was lost in the sands of time (at least as far as the mainstream is concerned) is simply that his work was classified for ‘national security’ purposes.



Nonetheless, working antigravity technology was discovered by Brown at least back in the 1920s — and possibly even earlier by Nikola Tesla.

Although there are many great references to Tesla, this link is unusually good — and it also contains the contents of Chapter 4 from the same book that we’ll be examining Chapter 7 of in this article, regarding the Philadelphia Experiment. We may draw on the information in this link for other articles later.





Dr. Townsend T. Brown discovered that strong electromagnetic fields produce an anti-gravity effect. Gradually his work got attention. You can see here one of his earlier prototypes, in the shape of a cylinder. 




As I’ve written in Divine Cosmos, if you create a strong-enough flow of current between a negative and positive pole, you will get an anti-gravity ‘thrust’ that starts propelling your device in whatever direction the positive pole is pointing. Here’s a description of how this actually works in terms of the ‘flow’ of space-time ‘fabric’, as Einstein would call it:




This is actually a very simple physics principle and shows the hidden unity between gravity and electromagnetism. All that is required, ultimately, is high voltage — higher than we typically use in any household appliances. 

In Brown’s designs, the negative pole is much larger than the positive pole. If you think of a UFO designed like this, you’d have the entire bottom of the ship be a negative plate, and the small sphere at the very top of the ship as the positive plate. You can navigate the ship by breaking up the negative plate into a series of pie-shaped sections and varying the current flow between them. 




I met Mark McCandlish at the Disclosure Project event in May 2001, where he explained the above drawing as being an accurate rendition of an ‘Alien Reproduction Vehicle’ or ‘Flux-Liner’ already in use by various forces within the secret government.  



Of course, Brown’s principle ties directly in with quantum mechanics as well. You have negatively-charged electron clouds and a positively-charged nucleus in the atom. In my Divine Cosmos model (and others I studied), the Biefield-Brown effect is what causes the electrons to rush into the nucleus. 

Ultimately, to understand this physics you have to see all atoms and molecules as almost like ‘portals’ that a much greater source of energy is flowing into and through. All matter is constantly taking in this energy to replenish itself each and every moment — and if the flow was cut off, the object would disintegrate.

Remember Einstein’s discoveries that space and time are part of one unified ‘fabric’. This leads to the conclusion that an atom is simply a ‘displacement’ — a vortex — in space and time. All we have is a flow within space-time — an aperture through which the flow may occur.

Space-time starts out ‘flat,’ without curvature, and as you accelerate it towards the speed of light, the curvature increases. This curvature bends gravity along with it — though on the quantum level it is too small to be appreciated as part of the same basic force, so we would refer to it as the ‘weak force’, for example — one of the four basic fields in mainstream physics. 

At the speed of light you create a torus — as you see in the next image. Space could now be thought of as the outside surface of the torus, and time as the inside.




What happens when you accelerate the curvature PAST the speed of light? The torus unrolls again — but now it is INSIDE OUT.

Time, which was on the INSIDE of the torus, has now moved to the OUTSIDE of the torus — the SURFACE.

What was once time has now become space.

Everything inverts. And as your velocity further increases (from our perspective) or decreases (from the other side’s perspective), the torus again flattens out, becoming a stable, inhabitable plane. 

You have just created a gateway into ‘time-space’ — a parallel reality in which there are three dimensions of time (as we think of it) and one dimension of space (to our perspective.) Over there, the three dimensions of time become the space you move through, and experience as space — and the one dimension of space (to us) becomes the steady flow of time.

I know this is probably very confusing. This is actually where the ‘aetheric plane’ or ‘astral plane’ is located. It is literally the ‘inside out’ version of our own reality. Everything is inverted. A ‘particle’ here is a ‘wave’ over there, and vice versa. If you try to bring a piece of matter over there into our reality too abruptly, it turns inside-out very quickly and explodes. We would call this ‘anti-matter’ — so in a sense, time-space is the ‘antimatter plane’.



Anyway, with a strong enough high-voltage current, you can bend space PAST the ‘crossing point’ of light, and reach ‘crescendo’. At that point you have created a direct portal into time-space. When any person or thing in our reality transitions into time-space, it becomes invisible to our perspective.

A vortex into time-space may appear as a jet-black “hole” in the space in front of you, a slate-gray surface as in the case of certain stargate technologies, or as a mirage-like bubbling ‘lens’ effect within the room around you in other cases I’m aware of.

You can go THROUGH time-space to instantly travel anywhere in our space or time. There are many problems with this, however, and that gets into what went wrong with the Philadelphia Experiment. I can only scratch the surface as this is a very complex field of inquiry (pun intended). The more you read through the material on this site the more you’ll understand.



Certain areas of the Earth have a much higher torsion-field flux — and these are known as ‘grid nodes.’ In these areas it is faster and easier to bend space, and thereby create anti-gravity AND ‘warp’ effects. Readers of the three Convergence books in the “Read Free Books Here” section of this website should be well aware of the Global Grid. The best treatment I gave of it was in Shift of the Ages, the first volume.




It seems that Norfolk, Virginia — the same latitude line and approximate location as Virginia Beach, where Edgar Cayce did his readings — is a key ‘vortex point’ on the Earth’s surface. With enough of a blast of high-intensity electromagnetic fields from the arc-welding going on in shipbuilding at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, strange ‘warp’ effects were being observed.

As word of this reached the highest levels, the US government called Dr. Thomas Brown in to investigate — and it was from these observations that the Philadelphia Experiment was ultimately born.



My contact at the last conference told me that all the information about this could be found in Chapter Seven of Gerry Vassilatos’ book “Lost Science” — and much to my delight, I just found the text for the entire chapter online! I’ve tried to order the book at least once (which came highly recommended from other contacts) but it never actually shipped to me. Now all the relevant text is posted online.

Here’s the key part of the book, which is apparently based on at least two or three accurate insiders’ testimonies. I’ve introduced modern web-standard paragraph spacing to make it easier to read:

The increasing financial pressures of America’s Great Depression forced Dr. Brown to leave the NRL, sign with the Naval Reserve, and join the Civilian Conservation Corps in Ohio. In 1939 Dr. Brown became a lieutenant in the Reserve and, after brief employment with the Glenn L. Martin Company, was directed toward the Bureau of Ships. There he worked on the magnetic and acoustic aspects of warships.

It was during this time that Dr. Brown was to embark on an adventure, which would alter the path of his life forever. Many of the details and facts have been pieced together in a patchwork of intrigues.

Gleaned from several reputable science sources, the incident reached public awareness as the “Philadelphia Experiment”. What sequence of events triggered the Naval Research Laboratories to investigate the possibility of optically “cloaking” vessels of war?

It all began when several Naval researchers were asked to investigate a peculiar phenomenon, which was plaguing a classified arc welding facility. This facility was classified because it protected a new Naval process for fabricating very durable armor plated hulls.

The spot-welding process employed an incredibly intense, high amperage discharge. The process was similar to modern MIG welding, but was conducted on a titanic scale. Electrical power for this welding process was supplied by a massive capacitor bank charged to high voltage. Several steel plates could be thoroughly welded by this process, the metal seams absolutely interpenetrated at the weld points.

So intensely dangerous was this electrical discharge that personnel were restricted from the site when once the parts had been configured for the weld. Hazardous charge conditions being the least worrisome aspect of the process, X-Ray energies were released in the blinding blue-white arc.

Applied by a heavily insulated mechanical arm, the arc was pressed to the plates by remote control, as power was stored in the capacitor bank. The safety signal being given, a lightning-like discharge absolutely rocked the facility. Radiation counters measured the intense release of X-Rays. The process was a new advance in Naval technology.

Neither the extreme electrical or radiation hazards obstructed deployment of the system to other Naval facilities. Safety precautions were at maximum levels. Workmen faced no hazard outside the welding chamber. But another group of strange phenomena began plaguing the facility… phenomena that had no reasonable explanation at all.

Researchers examined the site, separately asked workmen to confirm the rumors they were hearing, and watched the process for themselves in the control booth.

What they saw was truly unprecedented. With the electrical blast came an equally intense “optical blackout”. The sudden shock of the intense electric weld impulse was indeed producing a mysterious optical blackening of perceptual space, an effect that was thought to be ocular in nature.

This peculiar “blackout” effect was believed to be a result of intense and complete retinal (rhodopsin) bleaching, a chemical response of the eye to intense “instantaneous” light impulse. This was the initial conventional answer. The more outrageous fact was that the effect permeated the control room, causing “retinal blackout” even when personnel were shielded by several protective walls.

Any effect, which could permeate walls and render personnel incapable of sensation in this manner, could be developed into a formidable weapon. The wall-permeating blackout was a neurological response, which paralyzed the whole physiology, rendering it incapable of response to outside stimuli. So it was thought at this point.

The research was earning and acquiring new levels of military classification by the day. Here was a possibly radiated phenomenon, which temporarily neutralized neural sensation, transmission, and response.

The weapons experts knew that any electric radiance, which could be substituted for a nerve gas, would offer a new military advantage. An extraordinary means for deploying the effect, the horrid energy could be “beamed” to any site. If properly controlled, entire platoons could be rendered unconscious in a single “swiping flash”.

An unfortunate victim of such exposures was a certain William Shaver. Mr. Shaver worked as a Naval arc welder with much earlier and smaller hand-operated versions of this system. These systems employed intense impulses of low repetition frequency. After repeated exposures to this impulse energy, he began freely hallucinating. The result of neuronal damage, the centers of his will began shredding away.

This otherwise stable man ultimately lost his grips on reality, writing hundreds of pamphlets throughout his remaining years on the frightening topic of “beings from the underworld”. It was subsequently discovered that exposure to sudden electrical impulses of intense potential and extremely low frequency produces a deadly nausea, in some cases even the neurological damage leading to eventual madness.

Careful examination of the effect before the NRL now proved perplexing. First, the “blackout effect” could be photographed as well as experienced. Therefore it was not a mere neurological response to some mysterious radiance. The blinding discharge was doing something to space itself. Researchers were now drawn into this project with a deep fascination.

The “blackout” effect drew equally intense interest by Naval officials for obvious military reasons. Careful study of research publications funded by NRL grants reveals an intense preoccupation with all such perception-related subjects.

But there were “other aspects” of the phenomenon which were chilling. Bizarre rumors were being shared by certain of the original weld-site workmen. Remember, these men were on the site throughout the period, which proceeded the project’s classification. They were privy to certain other phenomena, which had no rational explanations.

Personnel hoisted hull materials and braced the pieces in composite arrangements for the discharge operation to commence. The warning alarm sounding, all workers and inspection teams promptly left the site, frequently dropping tools and other implements where they stood.

Capacitor charging required several minutes. The switch thrown, a tremendous rocking explosion shook the site. The discharge produced the blackout effect, and when the room was declared officially “clear”, workers returned to the chamber.

Workmen began noticing that tools and other weighty items, left on the floor or around the chamber, were somehow “misplaced” during the heavy arc discharge process. Imagining that these tools had been thrown into corners or possibly driven into walls by the room-rocking blasts, workers searched the entire welding facility. The tools and other materials could simply not be found (Puharich).

Now the mystery was intensifying to a degree, which demanded a complete study of the phenomenon from its first observation. Workmen were called in to report what they had seen, felt, and experienced. Repeated stories matched to such a degree that the “rumors” were now taken as “personal testimony”.

The entire proceedings were so highly classified that military agents were not even aware of the study. What workmen told examiners was that their tools and other site materials were “disappearing”, and disappearing “for good”.

Foremen had scolded and ridiculed them repeatedly about this loss of materials and tools until experiencing it for themselves. One fact was clear, when the alarm blew and the discharge exploded, objects disappeared. Where they went, none could say. High-speed films proved that the effect was real.

Objects were placed on pedestals near the discharge arc. On discharge, the objects dematerialized. The films proved it. They were certainly not “thrust away” at high speeds, or even “impacted” into walls by the intense arc blast. At first again, the conventional answers came forth. The blackout effect was seen as a mystifying radiant energy, possibly a specific variety of X-Rays.

These rays had power to both neutralize human neurological response and disintegrate matter in its immediate vicinity. Here was the possible “death ray” for which the military had long been searching. The Second World War was raging, a possible second “theater” was developing in the Pacific, and this sort of fundamental discovery was enormous in military potential.

To end the war was the aim. The only aim.

If this effect could be developed into a weapon, it would be deployed instantly thereafter. A weapons program of this kind would require the nation’s most eminent scientists, and levels of secrecy, which demanded the very highest stringency. Several Naval personnel were summoned for this study.

Dr. Brown was requested to examine “the phenomenon”. His knowledge of “dielectric stress” phenomena and the activities associated with arc discharges made him a perfect candidate. Keeping him “in the blind” concerning their ultimate hopes for this new discovery would not be easy. He “had a name” for being the dreamer.

When Dr. Brown reviewed the material, his conclusions were strikingly different from those, which others gave. While academes adamantly insisted that the observed dematerializations were the result of “irradiation” and subsequent vaporization, no such evidence for the “vaporizations” could ever be found.

Careful analysis of weld-chamber atmospheres proved negative in these regards. No gasified metals were detected in the room air throughout the discharge event. Truly mystifying. The NRL had to know more.

Dr. Brown was sure he knew what was happening here. Despite the fact that he had never observed these effects, his intuition taught him well. Though in his early experimentation, he never experienced any of these blackout effects, but Sir William Crookes had seen this very thing. Within the action space of his now famed high vacuum tube, Sir William beheld a curious sight.

There, suspended over the cathode, was a black space, which was actually radiant. The radiance extended beyond the tube walls in certain special instances. Sir William had no difficulty accepting the fact that this was a “space-permeating” blackness, a radiance having far greater significance than a mere physical phenomenon.

Crookes believed this radiance was a spiritual gateway, a juncture between this world and another dimension.

In the blackout phenomenon Dr. Brown yet recognized the signs that space distortions were taking place. What was the upper limit in strength of these space distortions? What other bizarre anomalies would they manifest? His own small gravitators operated through high voltages now considered “small”.

When compared with those used in the new welding site, they were minuscule. Nevertheless, his experimentation proved the effects of small space warps. Material dragging was one such anomaly. In short, he believed that every anomalous inertial behavior could be traced to such space distortions.

In studying the entire effect, no single part was unimportant. Dr. Brown knew that the massive hulls played their part. They were somehow “spreading out” the electrical field and giving it a specific shape. The electric arc, focused onto the hull by the mechanical applicator was the formidable field source.

But something “extra” was occurring. Another realm of realities was entering the scene where arc discharges blasted through the welding chamber. He was the only one, perhaps with two others in the nation, who would propose that the phenomenon was the result of an interaction, which was “electrogravitic” in nature. These were electrogravitic phenomena.



Associates reviled his thoughts and rejected his analysis of the problem. But the military needed answers. If Dr. Brown could bring them closer to their weapons goal, his explanations would take precedent. Acquiring the complete attention and respect of very highest military specialists, he was asked to formally address their small and elite corps.

Dr. Brown very casually described what he strongly believed was happening, citing his own work and familiarity with such phenomena. While his own experimental apparatus never produced spatial distortions of this extreme intensity and focus, he nevertheless observed similar effects, which had power to move matter.

Having no conventional electrical explanation, the only resolution was found in the Einsteinian proposals concerning electrical and gravitational force unity.


The chapter goes on from there, and the entirety of the story is online at The point I started excerpting from is about halfway down the page, which is 44 pages long in print!

The important part is how these early accounts ultimately lead to the creation of a cloaking technology for an entire Naval vessel. I recommend printing out this whole account and reading it offline, as the website is hard to read on-screen but is very printer-friendly.



In the next section we’ll go into another new discovery that all ties in with this — and this was what originally triggered the whole idea of writing this article. The two very much interrelate. In the meantime, the physics buffs in our audience should have a LOT to chew on by exploring the two main links to the Gerry Vassilatos material.

I have it on very good authority that Vassilatos has given all the relevant answers to anti-gravity and free energy in that book, and that there’s nothing else like it out there in terms of quality. 

I’m still working on Part Two of the honeybee article, but this was such a stunning discovery that I wanted to write about it while the ‘buzz’ was fresh in my mind! Check back as I may do some rewrites to this article and explain the new gravity principle I learned from reading Vassilatos’ material.
