A cornerstone topic of discussion within conspiracy circles for decades, the Philadelphia Experiment is a supposed military experiment that if true, was carried out sometime around the date of October 28, 1943 at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard in Pennsylvania.
The claims are that the US Navy managed to place an invisible, “cloaking” device around its USS Eldrige (DE-173) destroyer escort.
The mainstream narrative is that this story is a hoax. It very well could be, but just in case it isn’t and for the interest of the people reading this, here’s the story behind the Philadelphia Experiment.
In 1955, this story first appeared, in letters that we don’t quite know the origin of sent to an astronomer and writer named Morris K. Jessup. Jessup had just published a book titled The Case for the UFO, and in his work he was sent a couple letters from a person going by presumably a pseudonym, Carlos Miguel Allende (also known as Carl M. Allen), who claimed to be a witness to the World War 2 secret experiment at the Naval Shipyard of Philadelphia.
The man claimed that in the experiment, the USS Eldridge was rendered completely invisible. Then he claims, the ship itself was teleported to New York, teleported to another dimension of reality where the team encountered some kind of alien beings, and that the death of several sailors was a result of teleporting through time.
The claims even go so far as to suggest several of the sailors were “fused with the ship’s hull,” somehow physically fused to the ship and injured from it, as a result of traveling through time.
However Jessup initially dismissed these claims as probably false.
The story became popular, and all kinds of little documentaries and entertaining pieces of media have been created from the claims.
So the Navy certainly didn’t admit to doing anything like teleporting ships to New York, but you know what the CIA actually did admit to?
People being fused to inanimate objects as a result of some kind of phenomena we don’t understand may not be too far off from what is physically possible, according to the CIA.
The CIA openly allowed files to be released that show they watched a man move solid objects through other solid objects, without so much as damaging or altering the object that was penetrated at all: like walking through walls.
This is the document: it is titled “Chronology of Recent Interest in Exceptional Functions of The Human Body in the People’s Republic of China.”
A summary of it explains:
“One of Zhang’s accomplishments involved moving sealed objects in and out of sealed containers.
Lin Shuhuang, as mentioned above who is from the physics department of Beijing Teacher’s College, studied this man for six months and described experiments where small pieces of paper were placed in a sealed test tube.
After five minutes, with scientists observing and video taping from various angles, the pieces of paper somehow appeared outside the tube despite the fact that the test tube was still sealed and undamaged.
He went on to do the same thing with other small objects like paper clips and even live insects.”
The document goes into the issue of the Chinese government’s fascination with remote viewing, psychokinesis, telepathy, ect. The US government however is also known to have an interest in these things, which can be collectively referred to as parapsychology, as proven by their Stargate program.
Check out this document titled “Research into Paranormal Ability To Break Through Spatial Barriers.” Due to Freedom of Information Act requests, this document was declassified.
Accessible seemingly only through archived copies of it on the internet, although it was once reachable on the CIA website, it demonstrates how for years the US government and Chinese government alike have paid close attention to any people born with special abilities.
Can objects physically move through sealed containers, move through solid matter without damaging the solid matter? Perhaps so, if most of an atom is empty space after all.
