I don't know what "ACTUALLY" happened, but the following explains fairly well what allegedly happened. Take it for what it's worth.

The Philadelphia Experiment
(the Invisible Ship Experiment)
by Alex Saunders for Search Magazine
During the Second World War, all participant countries were looking for
a way to end hostilities quickly, no matter how fantastic the manner.
If some unorthodox or revolutionary invention could do the trick, all
the better, as long as the war terminated triumphantly for them.
The U.S. Navy, for one, seemed obsessed with the idea of the perfect
camouflage - the ultimate secret weapon - INVISIBILITY. If only one of
their warships could be made invisible, think of the havoc it could
cause the enemy. Havoc that could conceivably bring the bitter and
long-enduring war to an end.
On October 28, 1943, an experiment was conducted at the Philadelphia
Navy Yard. This event, appropriately enough, became known as "The
A Navy escort destroyer named the DE 173 (better known as the U.S.S.
Eldridge), with hundreds of tons of electronic equipment aboard, lay in
its dock. Scientists on shore started the experiment which involved Dr.
Albert Einstein's "Unified Field Theory", a completed version appearing
in the period 1925-27. "Withdrawn" as incomplete, the revised theory
returned in 1940. The result of the experiment was brain-rattling!
The ship faded rapidly from sight in a foggy, green mist - and
COMPLETELY VANISHED! Speechless amazement struck the wide-eyed
Then, after a few minutes (another account makes that "seconds"), the
ship reappeared where it had formerly been, to its Philadelphia dock,
and regained its visibility! But that was not all. Something equally
stunning was discovered to have happened during its vanishment.
During that period of a few minutes (or seconds) the ship had shown up
at its other Norfolk Navy Yard dock in Virginia! So, not only had it
successfully become invisible, but it had also been TELEPORTED!
With the ship's disappearance, so had everything aboard disappeared.
EVERYTHING! The many hundreds of tons of scientific equipment,
furniture, food, etc. - and ALL PERSONNEL SUCH AS SAILORS AND OFFICERS!
SOME WALKED THROUGH SOLID WALLS!
More than half of them went insane due to the effects of pulsating
energy fields and were quietly confined to mental institutions. Our
report has it that "they were kept at Bethesda Naval Hospital out of
communication with everybody for the duration of the war."
Then there were those who, discharged as mentally unfit for further
service, were pensioned off and sworn to secrecy. Several died. Others
recovered, but at what a price!
Never were they to regain their former normalcy. True, the invisibility
experiment fo the Navy ship was a total success, but to the men aboard,
severe after-effects both physical and mental made it a real disaster.
Some saw double, became invisible, laughed and staggered drunkenly,
fainted, caught on fire to burn for days on end, walked through solid
walls, disappeared temporarily and permanently, and worse.
Worse a thousandfold because they could either "Go Blank" or "Get
Stuck". The former,a not-too-unpleasant after effect due to being too
long insided the force-field, caused invisibility. To "Get Stuck" was a
side effect that kept the unfortunate from moving on his own volition, a
truly Hell-on-Earth experience.
He would remain transfixed unless two or more of the others withing the
fields quickly touched him. If not, he would lapse into "Deep Freeze",
which was definitely NOT psychological.
Now his position must be marked out carefully with the force-field
cutoff. Unable to move, and unaware of time as we know it, his
"unfreezing" could occur in an hour or so only if another fellow-
sufferer approached him and touched his face or bare skin. Or it could
take twenty-four hours. In one case it took SIX MONTHS!
To do the job of "unfreezing" required the construction of highly
complicated equipment. But should he be "frozen" for more than a day,
he would usually go mad - "stark raving, gibbering, running mad!"
If, within the vicinity of the Philadelphia Navy Yard a group of sailors
were seen to be putting their hands on another sailor, or upon "thin
air", an enlightened observer would know what was going on.
Quoting from Moore's book, page 130 :
"The experiment...had been accomplished by using naval-type magnetic
generators, known as DEGAUSSERS, which were 'pulsed' at resonant
frequencies so as to 'create a tremendous magnetic field on and
around a docked vessel.'"
Predictably, the Office of the Naval Information has consistently denied
the force-field experiment based on Einstein's Unified Field Theory, and
will send standard form letters of denial, curtly worded, to anyone
Despite this, succeeding issues of the November, 1967 issue of SAGA
magazine contained letters stoutly affirming the secret U.S. experiment.
Some were written by sailors and officers who claimed to have actually
been aboard the U.S.S. Eldridge during that time in October, 1943.
Another claimant was the mother of a crew member who was put in an
insane asylum as a result, and who remains there still. And so on.
THE CLOUD-LIKE MIST - GREEN IN COLOR
When the experimental Navy ship was invisibly teleported from
Philadelphia to Norfolk, the period of time that transpired was, let us
say, minutes-long, though as stated previously, some accounts declare it
was done within seconds.
Question : Where did the vessel vanish INTO before its visible
reappearance in Virginia?
Another dimension would be the most logical answer, and one that was
obviously LIVEABLE. It had to be liveable for the simple reason that
all the men aboard returned once more to the ship's original berth in
Philadelphia, not dead (as a poisonous atmosphere would have positively
left them), but very much alive.
We come now to two other great mysteries, UFOs and.....Well, first, I
would ask the reader of this article to take a paper map of the world.
Spread it on a flat surface. After drawing a line from Miami, Florida,
to Puerto Rica, draw another line to Bermude and back again to Miami.
What you will now have is a vast, watery triangle of the famous "Bermude
Triangle" wherein ships and planes (along with all those aboard) have
inexplicably disappeared. And it may very well be that there is a
definite connection between the three - the Philadelphia Experiment
project, UFO's and the Bermuda Triangle.
Furthermore, as the ships in the Bermuda Triangle disappeared, survivors
and witnesses have reported a related sight. The ships were ENCIRCLED
BY A CLOUD-LIKE MIST, GREEN IN COLOR - PRECISELY the way the U.S.S.
Eldridge was alleged to have vanished!
Does this then mean that the "place" into which the above disappeared is
the very same "place" where ships and planes of the Bermuda Triangle
disappeared? That is, through "doorways" into another dimensional world
in time and space?
Entering such a habitat was the hair-raising claim made by some of the
crew of the U.S.S. Eldridge on their return from being teleported. Not
only that, but they swore that while there they had SEEN, and TALKED, to
From Moore's book, page 68, are these chilling words:
"Presumably, if a vessel could be projected into another space or
energy continuum through mistake or design, it might also be possible
that its occupants could encounter entities on the other side of the
curtain of invisibility, shrouding contiguous but nontangent worlds. It
is intriguing to concieve the possibility that an experiment sponsored
by the U.S. Navy may have accidentally managed to pass through a doorway
into another world more than thirty-five years ago and that the
experiment and the results have been kept a closely guarded secret ever
So, can this other "place" be the home, or origin, of the elusive UFO's?
For these vari-shaped craft have been observed in the skies of the
Bermuda Triangle, not a few times, but many, many times.
THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT is not without discrepancies. Make no
mistake about that. More than one are to be found, but with a subject
as explosively stunning and momentous as the one in William L. Moore's
book, this is to be expected. Take these examples:
Regarding the time period of the U.S.S. Eldridge's teleportation,
some reports say it was a matter of SECONDS (see pages 24, 128 and 249),
while other reports claim it was measured in MINUTES (see pages 47, 89,
110 and 135).
Some reports claim the October 28, 1943 experiment occurred while the
ship was docked in Philadelphia (see pages 130 and 131). Other reports
statethe experiment was conducted AWAY from the dock, out at sea (se
pages 110 and 143).
To add to the confusion comes a claim that there was more than one
experiment, with one taking place at dockside, the other at sea (see
The copy of the Navy's form letter of denial is odd in that it
contains errors in spelling and grammar (see pages 134, 135 and 136).
This from the powerful and literate U.S. government! Surely a top
government agency does not issue sloppily composed forms? Also, in it
is the statement that Einstein never completed his Unified Field Theory.
Yet elsewhere in the book mention is made that the theory was finally
revised and completed (see page 150).G
The claim is made (see page 56) that "somefew people can somehow
tell you a man's name and his home address UNDER HYPNOSIS EVEN THOUGH
NEVER HAVING EVER MET OR SEEN THIS PERSON" is just too incredible to
So much of men's existence depends on his ability to recollect and
recognize past experiences. He cannot make it through a day without
this basic ability. Consequently, how could a person give an
individual's name, address, etc. when that person has never met the
In spite of the foregoing discrepancies - and there are more - I
would urge the very sober reading of William L. Moore's electrifying
book, THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT, which contains much more than my
brief outline has indicated. Richly detailed and including many
impressive photographs, I believe it is of paramount importance
and should never - NEVER! - be ignored.
"THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT" by Bill Moore - Published by Fawcett Crest
Peter Kelly has an interesting theory which states that the magnetic
field is gives matter its form while the electric field contains the
information which determines the characteristics of the mass.
Peter says that the magnetic field can be suppressed to allow access
to the electric field. When this occurs, the electric field can be "re-
programmed" for the desired characteristics you would like the mass to
exhibit. The magnetic field is then increased while the "charactered
electrical field is maintained". This then brings about transmutation.
We of VANGARD have had many interesting discussions with our own group
as well as with researchers, writers and others interested in such
If the magnetic field is intensified while being pulsed at the natural
resonant field of a mass, it would act like a ballon filled with water.
As the balloon was squeezed, the particles which make up the mass would
be pushed out, through a tube (4th dimension?) to a point in the past
where the mass had been. At that point, another balloon which
represents the "phantom" of the ship when it was there, would be "re-
filled" to allow the mass to teleport to a previous location.
Now, if the crew on the mass being teleported were to panic, a sudden
removal of the power BEFORE THE TELEPORTATION was complete would result
in the balloons surging from one to another until equilibrium was
This would in turn, cause radical changes in all structures involved in
the process, especially living systems, refer to HOMEOPA1, DNAMAST1 and
DNAMAST2 on the KeelyNet BBS for further information as the ability of
cells and mass to "record" patterns in which they occur.
