How about the research of John Worrell Keely? The idea is that audio frequencies can be used to cause substantial change to atomic and chemical structure, including disruption of chemical bonds (producing ions and free radicals in the body), atomic effluve (disintegration) and even "cold fusion" of materials together. If you move these frequencies into the X-ray and gamma ray bands, you can do the same thing to temporal structures in the cosmic sector.

It sounds like to me that they tried to see what would happen if they really screwed up causality and created paradoxes and when that didn't work at all, they just stopped exploring what can be done with travel to the past altogether rather than actually exploring that limits and conditions of such travel. I am not sure if I properly understand the situation though so I ask for clarity.
I can only report on what I saw; it was a big project with a lot of people involved and I was not involved with everything. But from what I did see, they made many attempts to send people forward and backward, and it resulted in a lot of deaths or other "loss," such as people just disappearing in the vortex, without a trace. And quite honestly, with what I know now courtesy of Larson and his Reciprocal System
, I have to question if those "trips" were actually real, or into some kind of artificial reality that was a simulation of reality. (Alf Webre talks about this scenario, in general, concerning abductions.)
Time travel, in itself, is not what you would expect. The classic, Sci-Fi depiction is not really "time travel" as much as it is "causality chain travel." There is quite a difference, as causality is a result of fiddling around on the Causal plane of existence, which is not 3D time. Coordinate time is every bit as physical as coordinate space, and time travel, in that respect, is more like Astral projection--which occurs in 3D time, since the Astral plane is the closest match for Larson's "cosmic sector."

Techniques for manipulating emotions has been known since the 18th century--that's the essence of good theatre. They have refined it using extremely low frequencies, subliminally, that can directly stimulate the brain centers, these days. Hearing voices (channeling, "telepathy", which I quote because a true telepath does not hear voices, as telepathy is conceptual), is another technology that is well developed, and even demonstrated on television in shows like Jesse Ventura's Conspiracy Theory
But to the best of my knowledge, they have not yet been able to introduce imagery directly into the brain. Grateful for that, or your dreams would be full of cigarette and liquor commercials.
