The new Netflix original series, Stranger Things, has been gaining popularity since its release this summer and for good reason. Not only is the TV show captivating, but it has numerous conscious undertones as well. The TV show is actually based on real-life government programs regarding telepathy and parallel universes. On a recent episode of Chelsea, Nuclear physicist and U.S. Secretary of Energy, Ernest Moniz, discussed the truth behind Stranger Things and confirmed that the U.S. government is researching higher dimensions and parallel universes.
MK Ultra Was The Inspiration Behind Stranger Things
If you’re unfamiliar with the TV show Stranger Things, here’s a quick synopsis: set in the 1980s, a young boy goes missing and his mother and friends set out to find him. They discover his disappearance is linked to a secret government program surrounding telepathy and an alternate dimension they refer to as “The Upside-Down.” As they uncover more clues, they meet a young girl (Eleven) with telepathic abilities who was experimented on in a government mind-control program. What many viewers didn’t know is that this horrific experiment was inspired by a real, CIA sanctioned program that ran from the 1950s until mid-1970s.
Matt and Ross Duffer, the brothers behind the show, stated in a Rolling Stones interview that their show was based on “bizarre” government experiments that took place during the Cold War, specifically MK Ultra. Matt explains, “We wanted the supernatural element to be grounded in science in some way. As ridiculous as it is, the monster [in the alternate dimension] doesn’t come from a spiritual domain and it’s not connected to any religion. It made it scarier. I don’t believe in ghosts, but I believe in aliens and alternate dimensions.”
In Stranger Things, the government allows the sacrifice of young children to satisfy this monster for “the greater good.” This sounds bone-chillingly familiar to what occurred in Project MK Ultra, as numerous innocent people including young children fell victim to these experiments, all of which was developed for “the greater good of America.”
More specifically, the experiments were intended to identify drugs and procedures to be used in interrogations and torture in order to weaken victims and force confessions out of them through the use of mind control. The TV show lightly touched on the severe mental, physical, and sexual abuse involved but left out many of the other gruesome details of the experiments, all of which you can read about here. The real monsters aren’t the illusory ones hiding under your bed, they’re the ones controlling these types of programs, otherwise known as the elite or the shadow government.

U.S. Secretary of Energy On Stranger Things, Higher Dimensions, and Parallel Universes
One of the more recent episodes of the new Netflix show, Chelsea, guest stars Joshua Jackson, Don Cheadle, and U.S. Secretary of Energy, Ernest Moniz, in which they discuss Stranger Things. Even though Moniz hasn’t watched the show, he was quick to engage in the conversation by stating that he’d heard of the series and that there’s some truth behind it.
Moniz explains, “We do work in parallel universes… We are also a big supporter of very basic science, and that includes trying to understand the basic particles of nature and the structure of the universe. It turns out, theoretical physics addressing that looks at things like higher dimensions than three dimensions and parallel universes.”

How This Relates To Us
During the interview, the audience laughs off Moniz’s claims. People have so much trust in the system that they can’t even see what’s in front of them, even when government officials admit what they’re doing. To be fair, most of them probably hadn’t considered that the government may study parallel universes because the concept is often dismissed or considered “Hollywood movie material.”
This concept really isn’t that far out. The Milky Way alone includes billions of Earth-like, potentially habitable planets and the Milky Way itself is only one of billions of galaxies. Furthermore, the scientific term multiverse was created in support of Stanford physicist Andrei Linde’s theory of eternal chaotic inflation, which supports the existence of an infinitely-increasing number of universes. Linde explains, “We started calling it a ‘multiverse,’ meaning the entire ensemble of innumerable regions of disconnected space-time.” We need to accept that we literally know nothing about the multiverse; thus, the potential for parallel universes is very real.
Scientists have been researching higher dimensions for decades, this is not new information. Carl Sagan discussed it on his TV show, Cosmos, back in the 1980s. We currently live in a third-dimensional world, so how do we gain access to higher dimensions? I personally believe that it can be done through our consciousness. Carl Sagan explained the differences between the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th dimensions on his show Cosmos, which you can watch here.
