The conspiracy theory first gained traction in the 1980s when Preston B. Nichols published a book entitled The Montauk Project: Experiments In Time.

Nichols’ stories shed light on time travel, teleportation, mind control, and other paranormal research that was said to be carried out at Camp Hero and the Montauk Air Force Station.


What is The Montauk Project: Experiments In Time about?

The Montauk Project: Experiments In Time is the first book in a series of books written by Preston B. Nichols and Peter Moon.

Here are the book’s main takeaways:

  • Homeless people were abducted from the streets and experimented on.
  • Abducted subjects were exposed to massive amounts of electromagnetic radiation.
  • A huge government facility was built in Montauk without anyone knowing.
  • Mind control experiments were conducted on children.
  • People who were experimented on gained psychic and supernatural abilities.
  • Contact with aliens was established during the experiments.

Nichols claims the book is based on recovered repressed memories of his time while working at the Montauk Project.

The Stranger Things series was inspired by the Montauk Project

How does the Montauk Project overlap with Stranger Things?

In his book, Nichols describes working on the Montauk Chair, a chair that enhances someone’s psychic powers via electromagnetism.

This chair is used to open portals into other dimensions.

In Stranger Things, Eleven similarly uses a device to open a portal into the Upside Down.

Other areas of overlap include remote viewing, abductions, and the ability to summon things and monsters into reality.

Creators of Stranger Things, Matt and Russ Duffer, were so inspired by the Montauk project that the original title was actually Montauk, according to Variety.
