Tesla, candidly but non-egotistically,
'It seems I have always been ahead
of my time. I had to wait nineteen years before Niagara was
harnessed by my system, and fifteen years before the basic
inventions for wireless, which I gave to the world in 1893, were
applied universally. I announced the cosmic ray and my theory of
radio activity in 1896.
One of my most important discoveries
- terrestrial resonance - which is the foundation of wireless
power transmission and which I announced in 1899, is not
understood even today. Nearly two years after I had flashed an
electric current around the globe, Edison, Steinmetz, Marconi,
and others declared that it would not be possible to transmit
even signals by wireless across the Atlantic.'
This was stated around 1930-40 but
wireless power transmission (radio) is also apparently not
understood even today, or at least not taught correctly.
Although Tesla attained world-renown
fame in his day for his electrical inventions, both unprecedented
and prolific, his name has been withheld from all text books.
Smithsonian Museum refused to recognize him, with its
display of Edison's bust, surrounded by Tesla's discoveries.
This institution has been bombarded with
protests to correct this injustice and has even been offered a bust
of Tesla. Thus again we have another example of corruption by
funding - in this case by Edison Company. Outrageously, the
Smithsonian publications, The Smithsonian Book of Inventions, and
The Beginning of the Electrical Age, are absent Tesla's name.
James Smithsonian, a wealthy scientist, bequeathed his estate
to the U.S. government for the furtherance of knowledge, not for
this kind of disgrace exhibited by the Smithsonian Institution. If
Tesla's inventions were removed from the world, life as we know it
would come to a standstill. He is clearly responsible for much of
An even further miscarriage of justice was perpetrated in
acknowledging Marconi as the chief inventor of radio, until the U.S.
Supreme Court settled the dispute between
Marconi and Tesla in favor
of Tesla as being the true inventor (this essentially refers to his
4-tuned circuit system).
Nikola Tesla was born in Yugoslavia in 1856 and died in 1943.
He suffered frequent illness as a child and often experienced vivid
flashes of light accompanied by images. At a given word his mind
would automatically visualize a thing in complete detail.
In adulthood one of his extraordinary
abilities was to be able to construct new inventions in his mind,
and test them mentally. He had no need for blueprints and had
photographic memory. He spoke seven languages. He suffered from
hypersensitive hearing and at one time in his life it was so extreme
that he was bedridden and apparently close to dying.
He was a recognized eccentric and clearly exhibited extreme phobias,
excessive cleanliness of restaurant cutlery and dishes
obsessively estimating the cubic capacity of any empty bowls,
an aversion to hair, women's ear rings
(he even apparently
once requested a friend to give a hint to world banker Morgan's
daughter to refrain from wearing ear rings during his meetings with
for a time he had an obsession
for the number 3; for instance, he insisted on having a
hotel-room number divisible by 3
Tesla became a vegetarian; considered plant food as superior and
that animal slaughter was cruel.
He ate two light meals a day and
walked eight to ten miles. He stated he slept for about two hours a
night. At one of his Birthday celebrations, in which he gave a
banquet for reporters and scientists, a reporter commented that
while the guests ate a sumptuous repast provided by Tesla, all Tesla
had was a couple of oranges and a liter of milk.
Later in life, Tesla found pigeons a comforting diversion and never
failed to feed them daily. If he were unable he would pay someone to
do it. He would let the pigeons enter through his hotel window,
which was probably tolerated by the management for the privilege of
having such an esteemed guest who attracted many customers,
particularly in the dining and restaurant areas.
After Tesla's death in 1943 a well-known psychiatrist gave a classic
evaluation of Tesla's eccentric and obsessional behavior, noting
particularly his difficult childhood and that his mother fixation
related to his doting on a particularly favorite pigeon.
We should add that a much more
complimentary and spiritual account has been given by the
Educational Foundation, San Diego, via channelings, in particular as
to the symbolic nature of the dove - not as an aberration of the
past but of an effect in his present time - the pigeon giving a link
to higher aspects of consciousness and spiritual realms.
In 1884 Tesla emigrated to the U.S. In these early days of his
career he was hired by Edison. As a result of Tesla's electrical
knowledge and extraordinary capabilities Edison offered him $50,000
to redesign his inefficient motors and generators.
A year later, having fulfilled this
task, Tesla discovered the nature of 'American humor', as Edison put
it, when the latter did not fulfill his promise.
He eventually entered into a profitable relationship with George
Westinghouse who gave Tesla financial backing. He continued with
this relationship until Morgan's business manipulations brought
Westinghouse under his control, and was not prepared to honor
Tesla's AC distribution royalty. Tesla, however, tore up the
contract to release Westinghouse, who was then close to bankruptcy,
from this legal obligation. This royalty could have made Tesla into
Probably the most valuable of Tesla's accomplishments to society
generally would be his alternating current electricity distribution,
in other words, our common AC mains. Edison's direct current system
for the distribution of electricity was far too limited.
Nevertheless he engaged in a continuous
campaign against Tesla's far superior alternating current system,
which involved paying children to bring in dogs or cats for
electrocution in public to demonstrate how dangerous Tesla's system
was - this repeated spectacle included calves, one horse and an
elephant! It has been stated that the introduction of the electric
chair was an off-shoot of this propaganda to discredit Tesla's
In fact the first victim to be executed
this way did not die, due to insufficient voltage, previously used
on smaller animals, presenting a gruesome sight for the observers
until the power was upgraded to end the poor wretch's suffering.
Tesla was a prolific inventor and unjustifiably referred to in later
life as a dreamer by his competitors and enemies as he was in fact
He had some 700
patents/inventions to his
credit. He was responsible for the feasibility of the Niagara Falls
power station, and the practical uses today of his AC electric motor
are indisputable and indispensable. He was finally credited by court
ruling that he was the principal inventor of radio - he invented the
vacuum tube amplifier and the 4-tuned circuit for radio.
He developed the parallel-disc mechanism for bladeless turbines of
great efficiency, and demonstrated one at 16,000 rpm with an output
of 200 hp at 150 kw. This principle was also applicable to a pump
design of great durability (but not used).
This same system was made available for
the motorcar combustion engine (but not used); in addition, he
designed non-moving (fluidic) valve inlets and outlets -
consequently free of any wear - and a speedometer and auto ignition
He could create earthquakes, which he in fact did from his
laboratory using a small mechanical variable-frequency oscillator
that he attached to a pillar of the building. The police, wise to
the notoriety of Tesla experiments, promptly located the centre of
the earthquake as Tesla's laboratory and arrived just as he smashed
the device with a hammer.
A similar vibrator was attached to a
foot-board which Tesla regularly stood on for 'tuning up' his
His friend Mark Twain tried it and finding it invigorating,
refused to step off, in spite of Tesla's advice, and he shortly
found himself rushing to the bathroom. Tesla developed a similar
machine for inducing sleep.
Tesla was amongst the early researchers into X-Rays; he invented the
fluorescent bulb, neon light, arc lamps for street lighting and also
the Tesla-coil: a high-frequency transformer.
To his credit we can add the basis of
radar, electron-microscope, microwave ovens and the wave-guide
principle for microwave transmission.
He developed the medical device
for diathermy, utilizing a high-frequency current for
therapeutic deep heating uses that produced highly
beneficial results, eagerly sought by the medical
He provided the inspiration for
the modern electric clock; evaluated refrigeration;
developed robotics and remote control radio for guided
He designed a solar engine, used
AND gate logic, a precursor for computers; oil insulation
for high voltage, and stranded wiring to reduce current
resistance (electrons travel in surface layers of wires).
He had proposals for extracting
electricity from sea water, and detailed designs for a
geothermal steam plant.
He created lightning over 100 ft
long, and using high-frequency currents he could light
electric lamps at three miles, with no wires.
He invented an improved
lightning conductor and pointed out the limitations and
inadequacy of existing ones. The modern light bulb was
Tesla's invention; Edison's 'incandescent lamp' lasted only
a few hours.

discoveries as Tesla's. And he was probably the first to discover
Amongst further discoveries and designs for new inventions he
identified cosmic rays and had theories of particles, which included
fractional charges of the electron - now called quarks. Tesla also
had a patent for a 'flying machine'.

for horizontal to vertical motion. He anticipated the charged
particle beam - now developed by America and Russia - and in fact
referred to a
particle beam, or death ray, which projected or fired
particles from a gun, of enormous energy and power, sufficient to
end all wars. He failed to interest U.S. and European governments
and couldn't obtain funding.
Subsequent to this he experimented with
'beam weapons', a death-ray and disintegrator. He demonstrated
through models how to sink ships, even a fleet in one attack, but
the military were skeptical. He claimed he could develop a thought
Tesla's greatest project (funded initially) was his magnifying
transmitter. This was built on Long Island, away from the populace.
It was essentially a resonant transformer which excited the Earth
with very efficient transmission of energy and no diminution (Tesla
had already identified Earth as a conductor). We are not talking
about Hertz waves; the energy was essentially transmitted through
the Earth by means of scalar waves.
Any desired amount of energy could
potentially be transmitted.
Note that interacting differences of
(scalar) potential will create electromagnetic waves, in space, or
the ether. Lamps without wires could be lit at considerable
distances (potentially any global distance). One of the purposes of
the magnifying transmitter was to provide a worldwide broadcasting
system, linking the world's telephone and telegraph services. Also
to transmit pictures, music, weather forecasts, and to be a global
source of information.
During experiments Tesla's transmitting
tower would light up the night sky with huge lightning bolt
streamers extending around the massive oscillator atop the 187-foot
tower with spherical terminal about 68 ft in diameter.
It was ultimately intended to bring free
energy to any receiving point on the planet, including aircraft by
transmission of high-frequency scalar waves. The editor of
Electrical Experimenter in June, 1919, referred to the Magnifying
Transmitter as truly 'a modern lamp of Aladdin'.
He appended the following to Tesla's
article My Inventions:
'...when Tesla built his famous
tower on Long Island he was 100 years ahead of his time... the
titanic brain of Tesla has hardly produced a more amazing wonder
than this magnifying transmitter. Contrary to popular belief his
tower was not built to radiate Hertzian waves into the ether.
Tesla system sends out thousands of horse power through the
Earth - he has shown experimentally how power can be sent
without wires...' Morgan withdrew all funding and the tower was
dynamited for scrap.
When investigating high-frequency
currents Tesla revealed that an electric field of sufficient
intensity could be produced in a room to light up vacuum tubes
One could enter his laboratory and
witness light bulbs lit without wires. On the ceiling would be a
large-diameter circle of wire that provided the power. It was thus
possible to provide wireless electricity to the home, using a small
generator in a cupboard or basement. The resulting energy gave a
less harsh and more healthy light.
Tesla demonstrated transmission of
energy without wires as early as 1891.
Tesla referred to the Hertz theory of radio as a scientific
aberration, and it still apparently is. He discovered a new wave
which oscillated longitudinally, as does a sound wave, not
transversely as with the Hertz electromagnetic wave. It was variable
in velocity and he measured it at significantly greater velocities
than that of light - invalidating relativity before it was
'established', and not adding to his popularity.
Today, such a wave is known as a scalar
wave, it is an oscillating potential as opposed to the
electromagnetic wave with its oscillating alternating electric and
Further, Tesla was also aware of the
fantastic applications of this scalar wave - very much hushed up
today - from depositing any amount of energy to any point on Earth
for destruction, or free energy for home, industry, and
transportation uses, ranging to such fantastic possibilities of
placing an impenetrable domed shield of scalar-electromagnetic
energy around, say, a city to protect it from any attack.
He worked out the details and endeavored
to obtain government funding.
These scalar-electromagnetics put nuclear weapons into a
conventional class. Soviet Premier Kruschev, around the 1960s
stated they could 'bury' America, and in the seventies Breznev
sought a treaty amongst nations prohibiting the use of these
terrible weapons. But no one apparently knew what he was talking
about, being then ignorant in this field. Imagine a spark created by
bringing together or shorting out two electrodes such as the
terminals of a car battery.
The explosive spark is electromagnetic
radiation of heat and light. Now imagine projecting, by means of
scalar beams, two differing (like positive and negative) potentials
and bringing them together on target. Thus scalar potentials can
produce huge bursts of electromagnetic energy, such as a fire ball.
However, Tesla's aim was to make war impracticable.
Note that the essence and application of scalar-electromagnetics
today is not recognized within orthodox science except by the
government's military and scientific branches.
Tesla talked in earnest about creating a 'giant eye' which could see
into any secret place on Earth - clearly he wasn't referring to
television. He received honorary doctorates, many awards and high
honors, and great recognition throughout the world. Contrast this
with the discrepancy of the average person's education and awareness
of this history.
Tesla died in his sleep in 1943 leaving an enormous quantity of
research notes, which were copied by the government and classified
as top secret.
Tesla's relatives in Yugoslavia
endeavored to retrieve the papers but were only partially successful
- the bulk of his papers vanished in America.
