Assisted by mind control methods, Preston Nichols and Duncan Bielek were debriefed. “We were just made to forget it,” stated Nichols. Nichols did forget, until later when he worked with a “time transducer” on his own and had “time currents” flowing through him. Once he had the “time currents” running through him, Nichols passed out on the roof of his own building and when he came back he started to remember everything. (Background: Our Friend, The Ether (Part 40), Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of December 11, 2013.)
Two things are associated with the “lost memories” of Preston Nichols: false memory syndrome and hugely powerful electro-magnetic fields.
Regarding the controversial false memory syndrome, the question is asked, “What could cause a person to believe sincerely in something that never happened?” For example, many claim to remember being abducted by UFOs. Are such memories real, or are they far-fetched products of hypnosis?  
Al and Duncan Bielek participated in some sort of experiment involving powerful electro-magnetic fields. At Montauk, Long Island, Preston Nichols was in the vicinity of “lots and lots of CW power. We believe today the CW power of the Montauk Project was in the order of 100 million watts, and the pulse power was up in the tera-watts.”  Later, the “erased memories” of Nichols were allegedly restored when “time currents” involving electro-magnetic fields flowed through him. Electromagnetic fields, or electric shocks, have induced specific hallucinations in people. Those who are exposed to them, even in laboratory settings, have complained about a feeling of people following them, talking to them, or watching them.  If the power of these electro-magnetic fields is much higher, at the level of 100 million watts and more, the hallucination intensity might increase.
Al and Duncan Bielek, along with Preston Nichols, definitely themselves believe time travel and associated incidents did in fact happen in connection with the “Philadelphia Experiment” and the “Montauk Project.” However the sometimes dubious nature of recovered memories, as well as the possibility of hallucinations connected with tremendous electro-magnetic fields, might be the truer explanation.
On the other hand, the U.S. military has been doing some strange things. Case in point: The Men Who Stare at Goats.
The Men Who Stare at Goats is a book by Jon Ronson. In 1979 a secret unit was established by the most gifted minds within the US Army. Defying all known accepted military practice they believed that a soldier could adopt the cloak of invisibility, pass cleanly through walls and, perhaps most chillingly, kill goats just by staring at them. Entrusted with defending America from all known adversaries, they were the First Earth Battalion. 
There have been attempts at “remote viewing” (clairvoyant espionage), “Jedi powers,” and subliminal sound weapons. Jon Ronson has asserted that “U.S. intelligence is the repository of incredible secrets… kept from us for our own good.”
“I invite the wind! The wind will come if you ask it to. Do you believe that? Come to my banyan tree.” These immortal words are attributed to an ex-military man from the First Earth Battalion. Originally, Flower Power thinking permeated the secret program. But then, in the 1990s, the Blue Meanies took over. Reportedly, the US Military is associated with “the mysterious mass-suicide of a strange cult from San Diego” (Heaven’s Gate?). They were blasting the theme tune of Barney the Purple Dinosaur at Iraqi prisoners. Maybe they will be using “the cloak of invisibility” to penetrate the top-secret Conclave of Cardinals!
A crucial fact discovered in Ronson’s book is that, prior to Major General Albert Stubblebine III being in charge of a U.S. military branch dealing with extraordinary covert technologies, it had been headed by none other than Dr. Sidney Gottlieb. This Gottlieb is well-known for having been involved with the Central Intelligence Agency’s mind control program MKULTRA.
Barney the Purple Dinosaur on the surface is just some sort of lovable furry pied piper. But the dark side of Barney could be a Tyrannosaurus Rex spanning several decades. Dr. Sidney Gottlieb led what seems to have been an earlier version of Barney, Inc., associated with brainwashing, mind control, and psychic powers. Allen Dulles of the CIA sent undercover agents to seances “in the hope of unearthing and recruiting America’s most talented clairvoyants to his mind-warfare battlefield.” 
Ronson mentions credible rumors that some “Jedi warriors” of the secret psychic espionage unit still existed as of 2004 and what’s more, had “left the office.” (This is parlance for field operations.) They purportedly roamed Iraq, searching for terrorists by means of “psychic powers.” Waiting to interrogate hapless suspects was perhaps a strange reptile with fur: Barney the Purple Dinosaur. If Barney is discovered in flagrante delicto, a “laugh curtain” will protect the carnivore.
So do not automatically dismiss the possibilities, in some form, of a “Philadelphia Experiment” and a “Project Montauk.” Just because what Preston Nichols and the Bielek brothers have to say seems incredible does not mean there is not at least some truth to it.
