6.17 – THE TESLA EXPERIMENT (8.1.14)


Colorado Springs. July, 1899. While testing a magnifying transmitter he built to track storms, Nikola Tesla claims he received some sort of transmission from an unknown source.

“One night, he was tracking thunderstorms 600 miles away. But all of a sudden, he heard these beeps. And it was three beats in sequence. And so it was mathematical and it didn’t make any sense to him. And the more he thought about it, he thought that they came from outer space, perhaps from the Martians.”

Marc Seifer (Author, The Life & Times of Nikola Tesla)

“Mars’ orbit brings it close to the Earth periodically, about once every 1.8 years. And at one of those close encounters he believed he was picking up signals from Mars.”

(Author, Life and Death on Mars)

“He most likely had made a receiver that was sensitive enough to receive radio waves, as we now know come from galaxies and lots of different extraterrestrial sources. So, he interpreted them as signals from ETs. But perhaps he had an open channel that we really still don’t understand today.”

“Tesla believed it’s absurd to think we’re the only intelligent beings in the Universe. If that’s the case, where are they in the intelligence hierarchy and why wouldn’t they want to communicate with an intelligent force on the Earth?”

Marc Seifer (Author, The Life & Times of Nikola Tesla)

Tesla reported this otherworldly communication and proclaimed his belief in extraterrestrials in February of 1901, in an article for Collier’s Weekly titled “Talking with the Planets.”

“Tesla became obsessed with trying to receive further radio communications from other planets. Based on these transmissions that Tesla was receiving, he developed a theory that this extraterrestrial presence had been on Earth for a millennia. That these extraterrestrials had been controlling mankind from the very beginning.”

(Author, Time Travel: Fact Not Fiction),
(The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla)

“How far did these communications go? Did it lead to the point where he was actually able to receive useful information that was helping him build his inventions? Many believe that this is what happened and that Tesla had direct contact, through the things he’d invented, with extraterrestrial intelligence.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

But the shocking revelation was shunned by Tesla’s scientific peers and led many to deem him “a mad scientist.”

“So you have Nikola Tesla electrifying the world, literally. Then, about the time that he had a falling-out with J.P. Morgan, a very powerful man he’d also had a legendary falling-out with Edison, another legendary, powerful man. Then it came out that he was trying to, perhaps, signal the planet Mars. And his enemies exploited this, I think, to try and discredit him.”

John Brandenburg, Ph.D.

(Author, Life and Death on Mars)

In the early 1900s, it was rumored that Tesla was being considered to receive the Nobel Prize. But, mysteriously, he never did.

“Even today, scientists don’t take him into account the way they should. Tesla talked about atoms working like solar systems, and that light could work as a wave and a particle. Einstein got a Nobel Prize for saying light worked like a particle, and Bohr and Rutherford got a Nobel Prize for saying that atoms were like little solar systems. So, why is he removed from the history of quantum physics when he really belongs at the heart of it? So I think he’s been unfairly treated by the physicists, and part of the reason is his attachment to extraterrestrials.”

Marc Seifer (Author, The Life & Times of Nikola Tesla)

Was Nikola Tesla simply letting his imagination get the better of him? Or is it possible he really was in contact with extraterrestrial beings?

Belgrade, Serbia. Housing more than 160,000 documents, the Nikola Tesla Museum offers rare insight into some of Tesla’s future plans including what some believe are drawings of spaceships. According to historians, Tesla began work on his flying machine in 1910, focusing on the use of field propulsion, or anti-gravity. It is believed Tesla had discovered that high amounts of electricity could actually create lift in an object.

“Throughout the 1920s and 30s, Tesla continually talked about anti-gravity ships that could derive power from his Wardenclyffe Towers that were gonna be broadcasting power. He claimed these ships did not have wings or fuel. They were completely electric.”

– David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods),
(The Tesla Papers)

But were Tesla’s designs truly the first of their kind? Or is it possible, as Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, that similar vehicles had already visited the planet in the remote past?

“In the ancient Indian epics, the Vedas, we find references of Vimanas, those flying chariots that were used by the gods in order to travel from point “A” to point “B.” Some of these Vimana were able to alter direction at the drop of a hat, without any effort. So, now, reading this from a modern-day perspective would suggest that some type of anti-gravity device was used. You can link this from the ancient to the modern world with the modern UFO phenomenon. And so the idea that Tesla might have worked on an anti-gravity device is very plausible to me.”

– Giorgio A. Tsoukalos
(Publisher, Legendary Times Magazine)

Are the depictions of flying machines in ancient Hindu texts like the Mahabharata really proof that Tesla had received otherworldly knowledge in order to design anti-gravity spaceships? And if the so-called “mad scientist” actually did make contact with extraterrestrials, is it possible he continued to carry out their wishes in secret?

Palo Alto, California. 2013. A Silicon Valley start-up’s all-electric sports car wins Motor Trend’s Car of the Year. It’s one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles on the planet, produces no emissions and can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in four seconds. The Model S energizes the electric car industry and reintroduces its namesake to the world stage Tesla.

“It’s interesting to think in 1931, Tesla told reporters that he had converted a Pierce-Arrow car into a completely electric car. Tesla showed them the car. He drove it around. It went as fast as 90 mph. When you look at it, many of the inventions that Tesla talked about, and even patented, were eventually developed.”

– David Childress (Author, Technology of the Gods),
(The Tesla Papers)

The list of technologies that can be traced back to the drawing board of Nikola Tesla is endless. Modern humanoid robotics, solar and wind power, weather manipulation, drones and even planetary exploration vehicles. Getting as little as just two hours of sleep per day, the inventor’s sole purpose on Earth appeared to be geared toward one end – advancing technology for the future of the human race.

“He always had his eye on the future. And further, he was trying to shape the future through his inventions.”

Marc Seifer (Author, The Life & Times of Nikola Tesla)

“Mr. Tesla was not unique in this. Many of the founders, leaders, of religion also were compelled by inner experiences, which pushed them to materialize these things in the world. So, in a religious context, we would say that a religious leader is in touch with something divine. In a scientific context, we wouldn’t necessarily use the word “divine,” but yet, somehow, somewhere, people are being contacted, receiving communications which are leading to the clear introduction of new things in humanity.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

“Tesla seemed to have this drive that put everything else by the wayside. When he was working on an invention, food, sleep, relationships, human interaction, none of that mattered. It’s almost as if he was on some type of a mission. A mission, possibly, with a greater plan, under the influence of extraterrestrials.”

– Jason Martell

Was Nikola Tesla really inspired to invent by an extraterrestrial source, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest? And if so, might further clues be found in what some believe to be the rantings of a “mad man”?

By the time Nikola Tesla moved into his final home the Hotel New Yorker in January 1934, he had become better known for his eccentricities than his inventions. He reportedly was an extreme germaphobe, preferred to work in almost complete darkness and was also obsessed with the number three.

“Tesla was definitely interested in numerology. And he was very superstitious. He had to circle a building three times before he entered. He had calculated nodal points around the planet and they were probably linked to the numbers three, six and nine. And he said that the numbers were very important.”

Marc Seifer (Author, The Life & Times of Nikola Tesla)

“Nikola Tesla was quoted as saying, “If you knew the magnificence of the three, six and nine, you would have a key to the Universe.” If we go to the Great Pyramid of Giza, not only are there the three larger pyramids at Giza, all side by side, mirroring the positions of the stars in Orion’s Belt, but we also see a group of three smaller pyramids immediately away from the three larger pyramids.  Three and three. Similarly, we find lots of evidence that nature uses threefold and sixfold symmetry, including the hexagonal tile shape of the common honeycomb. These shapes are in nature, and the ancients emulated these shapes in the building of their sacred architecture. So, Tesla’s quote is neatly mirrored in the actual archaeological evidence that we find in many ancient architectural sites around the world.”

David Wilcock (Author/Filmmaker),
(Author, The Source Field Investigations),
(The Synchronicity Key)

Could the numbers three, six and nine really offer clues to the inner workings of the Universe? If so, is it possible that Tesla uncovered this profound secret and used this knowledge to push the boundaries of science and technology? Perhaps the answer can be found by examining Tesla’s most controversial invention.
