ICYMI: The American Alchemy Episode re: TTB is online

Post by Paul Schatzkin »

I posted this on the front page of ttbrown.com last night, but I should put it here, too:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTEWLSTyUic

This documentary is nearly two hours long, covers a vast swath of material and, for my money, wanders a bit off the thread in the middle (too much time devoted to Bob Lazar and John Lear).

But my favorite part might be the snippet near the end where Jesse follows the thread to the Back To The Future films, which I have been seeing connections to since... well, since the first one came out in 1985, at the end where 'Doc Brown' comes back FROM the future and the DeLorean is powered by "Mr Fusion" rather than the plutonium reactor that figured in the original 'design.' You can see that scene excerpted here:

What Jesse did though was make an obvious connection that I never quite go to.

Yup, the crazy 'Doc Brown' in "Back To The Future." The guy's name is literally (Emme)TT Brown.

Hats off to Jesse Michels for catching that (important?) detail.

Also nice to hear Linda Brown (by phone) commend Jesse for being the first to ever notice that. 🤦🏻‍♂️

i am so happy. And relieved that this wasn't more of the same tired narrative that all our black projects were born from UAP reverse engineering.

Jesse gets it. He really gets it.

And thank you, Paul, for the kind acknowledgement on the blog.

I'm taking myself out for a Margarita lunch to celebrate, and will be toasting you and Jesse for all the heavy, heavy lifting you guys have done.

I believe the 'crowd sourcing' of the TTB story has begun...

yes! It was great to hear Linda laugh at the end of the video, and that was such a sweet way to close the story.

This may have just moved the Overton window on the disclosure topic.

Some people complain that there is too much information for the allotted time. To borrow your phrase, Paul, ya think?

Meanwhile, I am going to add more from the perspective of the recorded history around the story. I believe that Townsend first "went black" in 1927, as a radio hobbyist wunderkind of the new age of telecommunications, helping Albert Hoyt Taylor set up the to what would be called the On the Roof Gang of Radio intercept operators, I will try to make my case in Part 2, of the Academia.edu series, covering 1927-1930.

Neat! I think I've missed the URL of your Academia page, can you post it here?

Reading the recent comments on Jesse's video and I come to this:

If you were an electrical engineer you would know T Townson brown made gravity control in 1956 and was killed in 1956!
That's news to me, too. /s

File that one under "Paul is dead."

And I am the walrus.

Not even close.

Very artificial, not very intelligent.

David,

In the Michael Swords article (on this site, somewhere) about Townsend's retrieval of space metal from under Project Bluebook's noses, there is a photo of a fellow opening a submarine hatch. That person is supposedly Navy Cdr. Luker (of DARPA, at the time of the story).

I saw it and thought, that's Townsend Brown! But having never met him, I was not sure until Linda saw it and was absolutely certain that it was her father. If the picture is indeed of Robert Luker, he looked amazingly like Townsend Brown.

It's a profile view of a younger man, but from it you can kinda see how Townsend would age. The AI photo might be close, though I suspect he would have weighed less than the guy in the picture.
