“Instinct is something which transcends knowledge. We have, undoubtedly, certain finer fibers that enable us to perceive truths when logical deduction, or any other willful effort of the brain, is futile.” -Nikola Tesla
When electric utilities were designing their very first systems, the fundamental choice for electric companies was between Nikola Tesla’s Alternating Current design and Thomas Edison’s Direct Current. Tesla’s AC system won out because it allowed power to be transmitted much further than Edison’s low-voltage Direct Current.
While Edison used a laborious trial-and-error approach, Tesla’s inventions were simply extracted from his imagination.
“The idea came like a flash of lightning and in an instant the truth was revealed.”
While Nikola Tesla was an incredible inventor, he wasn’t a ruthless businessman. He licensed his Polyphase AC system to George Westinghouse for a princely sum. But Westinghouse was unable to both pay Tesla’s royalties and compete with the big money financiers backing Edison, so Tesla tore up his licensing agreement.
JP Morgan financed Tesla’s research, for a time. Mr. Tesla was fairly open about his ambition to power machinery by harnessing the “wheelwork of nature”. This was incompatible with Morgan’s goal of putting a electric meeter on every home. When advised about the true implications of Tesla’s work, Morgan asked “Where will we put the meter?” Morgan promptly stopped funding Tesla’s tower.
This concept of “infinite energy” is basically incompatible with the official philosophy of science. Materialism is a philosophy holds that matter – hard stuff – is all there is. In the early 1800’s, 3 guys in their 20’s decided that Materialism explained everything, and Science became an exercise in explaining everything in Materialist terms..
Tesla’s guiding philosophy was a form of Vitalism. In this philosophy, non-living atoms are “animated” by an external force. It is this “vital force” which makes the difference between a non-living and living entity (plant or animal).
The teslabox process refers to Nikola Tesla’s ability to construct new inventions in his mind and test them mentally. All humans have this ability, but most of us have not yet unlocked our great potential.
One reply on “The Legend of Nikola Tesla”
I’ve heard of a little legend: that Nikola Tesla’s assistants built a “Tesla Set” in the 1950’s for interplanetary communication. Do you have any details on this?
