The Philadelphia Experiment a.k.a. Project Rainbow

The US Army has a long history of seriously looking into some of the most bizarre sci-fi concepts, including psychic warfare, mind control, and robots… And allegedly there’s also some time travel evidence.

The Philadelphia Experiment was a naval military experiment apparently carried out sometime in 1943. The nature of the research being undertaken is subject to lots of gossip.

Also referred to as Project Rainbow, it’s rumored to involve the USS Eldridge being invisible to enemy radar. But the process may have sent the whole ship and its crew back in time for a few seconds.

The reports are hazy, and the Navy claimed no such experiment occurred in the following years. Now, details of the story contradict well-established facts about the Eldridge and the known laws of physics. Many people dismiss the whole experiment as a hoax.

But the stories have been circulating for many years, and many seem to match up. The central premise of the time slip tale is that the experiment was based on the unified field theory, a concept by Albert Einstein, which sees electromagnetism and gravity in one field.

The time travel evidence story goes that space-time would also be bent if light were turned, virtually creating an invisible time machine. This allegedly happened briefly before the ship returned, and they decided the whole thing was too temperamental to use.

The case of the small watch

How’s this for time travel evidence?… In 2008, Chinese archaeologists discovered a large tomb considered an undisturbed, 400-year-old coffin of a man named Si Qing.

Before they even managed to pop the lid to find out what was inside, they came across something even more impressive than a centuries-old bag of bones in the ground around the exterior of the tomb.

It was a tiny piece of gold metal shaped like a watch, that had the time frozen at 10:06, with the word “Swiss” engraved on the back. A watch that couldn’t have been over a hundred years old. How did it end up implanted in the soil of an ancient, undisturbed tomb?

Time travel, obviously! At least, that’s the conclusion the media came to when the story broke. The plot thickens, though. Around that time, there was a ban on flashy jewelry in Geneva.

The idea it might be a watch makes sense because they were considered an essential, practical accessory rather than an ornament. There’s no record of watches being popular in Europe until after 1780, so what’s the deal?

The Montauk Project Conspiracy Theory

The Montauk Project is allegedly a string of secret government projects executed at Camp Hero or Montauk Air Force Station in Long Island, NY, looking into “exotic” experiments, which include time travel.

The Montauk Experiment stories began with Preston Nichols, an American author who declared he recovered repressed memories of his involvement with research regarding time travel.

Take that with a grain of salt, though, because the idea of repressed memories has been proven to be false. And Nichols claims to have psychology, parapsychology, and electrical engineering degrees.

But he also alleges that the government was doing mind control examinations at the Long Island Air Force base and had begun that research soon after the Philadelphia Experiment.

Project MKUltra was an endeavor by the CIA to synthesize a method of mind control that involved the use of psychotropic drugs.

The elements of these experiments came out years later when the files were declassified. So, who’s to say they won’t do the same for time travel evidence research accomplished at Montauk at some point?

A Scottish time slip?

Robert Victor Goddard was a senior commander during World War II, best known for his appearances in the 50s movie “The Night My Number Came Up,” which is based on a peculiar incident in his career and his later years spent investigating flying saucers.

Before that weirdness started up, however, he was an RAF pilot with an impressive war record, fighting in the First and Second World Wars. In 1935, he was made deputy director of intelligence at the Air Ministry. So, he was of sound enough mind for the British government.

In the book “Time Travel: A New Perspective by JH Brennan,” he experienced his own “time travel evidence” while flying over the former Royal Air Force station Drem Airfield.

Having left the run-down airfield near Edinburgh, which was in a dilapidated state with cattle grazing on the grass that had made its way through cracks in the tarmac, he ran into some difficulties on the flight back and flew back to Drem to get his bearings.

On his way back, the heavy rain suddenly switched to bright sunlight, the airfield was in perfect working condition, and mechanics in blue overalls presided over four yellow planes on the runway, none of which Goddard recognized, despite his extensive aviation experience.

He didn’t land. He just kept on and never spoke of the incident to anybody. 4 years later, the RAF began painting their planes yellow, and the mechanic’s uniforms were changed to blue.

The Internet

Over time, Teresa Wilson and Robert Nemiroff from Michigan Technological University’s physics department have been scouring the internet for references to foreseeing information posted before it should be possible in hopes of finding time travel evidence.

Time travelers who use platforms like Twitter and Facebook. They figure that if they use some advanced investigations to pinpoint their searches to times before events occurred, they could find proof of time travelers.

For instance, the pair searched for mentions of “Comet ISON” before its discovery in 2012 and looked for “Pope Francis” before 2013 since he’s the first pontiff to have that title.

So, the theory is that anybody who mentioned those words before they were introduced into the glossary must have some insider knowledge. Well, so far, the research has yet to provide any physical evidence of time travelers.

But instead of resigning themselves to the conclusion that time travel doesn’t exist, their Cornell paper rather indicates that even though the negative results reported here may show that time travelers from the future aren’t among us, it might be physically impossible for time travelers to leave any remnants of their stay in the past, including informational remnants on the internet.

Also, time travelers may want to avoid being found and might be good at covering their tracks. So there you have it: actual scientists think time travel evidence is out there. And the reason we haven’t learned about it yet is because the time travelers are stealthy.

So what’s you take on the time travel evidence in this article? Do you believe in all these temporal escapades? Be sure you let us know in the comments section.
