Alternate timeline: 22nd century, 28th century, the Wingmakers

Return to Index

The usual story of the Philidelphia Experiment is that Edward and Duncan Cameron traveled through time from the USS Eldridge in Philadelphia Harbor to the Monauk Air Force Station on Long Island, New York, arriving at 2:00 am on August 12, 1983 (or the morning of August 13).

In this video, Al Bielek tells what really happened to him and Duncan after they jumped overboard.  After falling for a few minutes, they lost consciousness.  They woke up in a hospital in 2137, where they spent the next four weeks recovering from radiation burns.  There, they learned that disasters had left much of the U.S. coastline under water, and that the Mississippi River had become a 50-mile-wide causeway.  (For details on how this was supposed to occur, read NASA’s 2001 warfare strategy, “The Future is Now” –

In addition, there is another story within this story.  During the brothers’ hospital stay in 2137, Edward was taken to the year 2749, where he lived for two years, until 2751.  In this era, there were no nations, only city-states, and these were all governed by interconnected computers known as The Lama.  Although most people were satisfied with life, due to the fact that they were treated like children they were not advancing individually or as a race.

The humans who had set up this experiment called themselves The Wingmakers.  They were the ones responsible for leaving a warning to humanity in a cavern in New Mexico, and six other locations, in the year 800 A.D.

After he had been in the 28th century for two years, The Lama informed Edward that he had to go back, and it sent him to the hospital where he and Duncan were staying in 2137.  From 2137, the brothers were sent to Montauk Station in 1983, where they met Dr. von Neumann.

On that train, all graphite and glitter
Undersea by rail
Ninety minutes from New York to Paris
More leisure for artists everywhere
A just machine to make big decisions
Programmed by fellows with compassion and vision
We’ll be clean when their work is done
We’ll be eternally free, yes, and eternally young

What a beautiful world this will be
What a glorious time to be free

What a beautiful world this will be
What a glorious time to be free
