John Dering on the Philadelphia Experiment

American Antigravity was founded in 2002 with a vision to promote antigravity and zero-point energy research. We cover antigravity, energy, and emerging science to help make the dream of space a reality. View all posts →

Laser-physicist John Dering discusses Einstein’s Unified Field Theory and its applications in the Philadelphia Experiment, Nazi-Bell, and Rhine Valley experiments during World War II. He speculates that the Philadelphia Experiment may have started out with the goal of naval radar stealth and inadvertently led to non-linear anomalous field effects. He also describes a Nazi secret weapons project in the Rhine Valley and electronic warfare experiments that may be one source of “foo fighter” reports by Allied pilots in 1944.

Einstein’s Unified Field Theory was directly cited by Carlos Allende in William Moore’s book, “The Philadelphia Experiment”, and John Dering offers speculative insights into the non-linear, scale-dependent nature of Unified Field Theory effects that may offer credibility to Allende’s story. He additionally describes the application of similar non-linear electromagnetic effects in the Nazi Bell project and the lesser-known Rhine Valley experiments of World War II, which he indicates were documented by the Allies as an “electronic warfare” system that caused interference with Allied Aircraft.

Dering also describes experiments conducted in the Rhine Valley which may have been related to the Nazi Bell project as described by Igor Witkowski in “Truth about the Wunderwaffe” or could have been a completely separate thread of research. According to Dering, a Nazi facility in the Rhine Valley that was a source of electromagnetic interference with Allied aircraft was discovered during a mission to gather intelligence on the German atomic bomb program. The device used a rotating electromagnetic wave interacting with stationary mercury and produced strong electronic warfare effects in terms of knocking out ignition systems and along with a collection of other anomalous effects in the vicinity of the device. He likens this to the Philadelphia Experment in it also demonstrated a threshold behavior that strongly indicates scale plays a role in these effects.

“The goal of the Philadelphia Experiment seems to have been to develop a type of stealth or cloaking technology to change the radar reflectivity of the hull of the ship by imposing a magnetic field. The field likely would have been generated by the ship’s degaussing coils, but they would have been placed around the ship in a more complicated pattern than normally used for degaussing the hull. Destroyer Escorts like the Eldridge were electric-drive ships and were one of the few types of vessels with large enough generators to power the coils. You’re talking about fields that would have been on the order of 10 to 100 times larger than would have been used for degaussing, and there could have been pulsing or resonant field techniques that could have been applied to make the field even several times larger than that.

This was a wartime situation and people were interested in trying to protect ships, not science-fiction. However, what appears to have happened is that the fields were powerful enough that the ship probably may have crossed a non-linear threshold above which Unified Field Theory Effects would have become prevalent. In terms of scale, you must have a certain minimum amount of power and a certain minimum size to the system before these effects shows up, but in the case of the Philadelphia Experiment they may have accidentally designed an experiment that crossed over that threshold.” – John Dering
