#296: Preston Nichols

Preston Nichols has quickly risen to half-legendary status among the most insane conspiracy theorists and avid fans (Nichols has his own page). He claims to have degrees in parapsychology, psychology, and electrical engineering. He is the main author (co-author is one Peter Moon) of a series of books revolving around “The Montauk Project” conspiracy, one of the strangest conspiracy theories there is. The main idea is that at Montauk Air Force Base, the US government created some kind of inter-dimensional portal with the help of Nikola Tesla (who has been resurrected/is immortal) and some friendly aliens.

Nichols claims the project goes back to 1943 and is connected to the Philadelphia Experiment; the Montauk time travel project interlocked in hyperspace with the original Philadelphia Experiment work from 1943. The ship USS Eldridge was drawn into hyperspace and trapped there, but two men, Al Bielek and Duncan Cameron, leaped from the deck (in hyperspace) and ended up at Camp Hero, Montauk Point, in 1983, where they met John von Neumann (who died in 1957). Bielek and Nichols have written this piece to (fail to) explain the sequence of events.

A time portal was apparently created so that researchers could travel anywhere in time or space. Thus they could explore the abandoned cultural archives on Mars. They also contacted extraterrestrials and exchanged advanced “etheric technology”. This facilitated the already existing psionic powers of people like Steward Swerdlow, at the cost of emotional and psychological instability (interesting piece of insight there) and being programmed with microchips.

The Montauk base also produced black helicopters and men in black suits, faked the moon landing, and altered the outcome of the Civil War.

Diagnosis: It must be kinda fun to be so pathologically unable to distinguish reality from fantasy. Nichols probably harmless, even though he is batshit insane.


  1. I had the pleasure to be invited by an acquaintance to hear Preston Nichols speak to a bunch of alien believers in 2000. It was unforgettable and most entertaining. He is an genius of weaving impromptu tales -- apparently he was instrumental in stopping the spaceships behind the Hale Bopp comet from invading the earth. Oh, and the wonderful thing about the Mayan rapture in Dec 2012 is that all of reality will shift, but we won't notice it. I suspect he knows he's a master of the bs and is not really insane, but doing this for fun and profit.

  2. I watched their 87 vid? And after about 8 minutes viewed it as a comedy. They almost had to get a laugh track to it imo.

  3. Preston Nichols does seem insane, but walks the fine line between a genius and a madman, AL Bibelik, Duncan Cameron, and Stewart Swerdlow all tell their own story's from their own points of view and are certainly all convinced of this so called lie, whatever happened there is certainly something the government doesn't want us to know about, I live on long Island and have been on those grounds, there was a lot of effort put into concealing whatever was in those buildings, I've been to other military bases that have been shut down and usually our government doesn't fill entry points of abandoned bases with 24 inch thick concrete. Not saying that this happened or didn't just saying something out of the ordinary went on there


  4. Preston Nichols also recently passed away on Friday, October 5, 2018 at 4am. Preston was born on born May 24, 1946 and was 72 when he died. He had suffered a heart attack in July followed by a stroke in September. Alfred Bielek Passed Away on Monday, October 10, 2011 at 6:30 AM in Guadalajara, Mexico. Al was born on March 31, 1927 and was 84 years old at the time of his death. He was buried at a local cemetery in Guadalajara. Duncan presently (October, 2018) has 4th stage prostate cancer and it is hard to expect him to live too much longer.
