6.17 – THE TESLA EXPERIMENT (8.1.14)

THE LIFE OF… [18b]

New York City. January 7, 1943. Famed inventor Nikola Tesla dies of a heart attack on the thirty-third floor of the Hotel New Yorker. Within hours of his body being discovered, his nephew arrives at room 3327, and discovers Tesla’s remains, as well as his technical papers and notebooks, have already been removed. Speculation spreads that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had seized the items and quickly designated them “top secret.”

“Nikola Tesla was completely paranoid about someone trying to kill him, and as soon as he died, U.S. government agents swooped in and confiscated all of his scientific papers. In a very short time, everything that he had been guarding with this life was gone.”

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

“The official story is that nothing of any great significance was found. It was just a lot of scientific papers and documents. However, there have been a lot of rumors over the years that the materials recovered was profoundly significant in terms of a lot of highly-advanced scientific concepts.”

Just who was this mysterious figure known as “Tesla”, and why would his notebooks elicit so much interest from the United States government? The life of Nikola Tesla was a dramatic one from the very beginning. He was born at the stroke of midnight on July 10, 1856, during a violent lightning storm in what is now Croatia.

“It was during an electrical storm, and the midwife saw this as a bad omen. But there was a flash of lightning, and Tesla’s mother said, ‘No, this will be a child” of light.’”

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

“At an early age, Nikola Tesla showed a superior mind. He was already inventing things. He invented toys that used insects to power them. But he was fascinated by thunderstorms. And, but he would see the lightning. He became fascinated with electricity. And he was determined that he was going to harness the power of the earth and the Universe for the benefit of mankind.”

In 1881, after eight years studying physics, math and engineering at universities in Graz, Austria and Prague, Tesla became an electrical engineer for a telephone company in Budapest. Three years later, the 28-year-old moved to the United States, and took a job in New York City, working for Thomas Edison. But very quickly, the two would become rivals in what became known as “the war of the currents.”

“In a sense, you have dueling wizards. Edison was performing with direct current, Tesla came along with alternating current, competing to win the right to harness Niagara Falls. That was the big prize. If you harness Niagara Falls, you control all the power for the entire Northeast.”

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

In Edison’s direct current distribution system, the steady stream of electricity would lose potency as it traveled down the line. This required power plants every half mile, and could only supply enough power to light bulbs. Tesla designed a far more sophisticated system, utilizing alternating current, which could easily be manipulated along the way, allowing for not only light bulbs to be powered, but also other electric devices. Using Niagara Falls as a hydroelectric power source, Tesla’s system could illuminate the entire Northeast.

“It would be like comparing a horse and buggy to a jet plane. Tesla had the jet plane. Edison had the horse and buggy. There is no comparison at all. Tesla had a quantum leap ahead.”

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

Edison criticized Tesla’s model as highly dangerous in an effort to ensure that his system won out. He even went so far as holding public demonstrations using alternating current to electrocute cats and dogs and even a rogue elephant. But Nikola Tesla’s superior A/C power system ultimately prevailed, and today, it still remains the foundation of the world’s power grid.

“Tesla allowed the world to be electrified, and not only that, he brought electricity from being kind of a useful thing to being a universal thing that could be used all throughout society.”

John Brandenburg, Ph.D.
(Plasma Physicist, Orbital Technologies),
(Author, Life and Death on Mars)

“Nikola Tesla is one of the most amazing geniuses mankind has ever known. His ideas went far and beyond what was accepted at the time. If it hadn’t been for Tesla, we would be living in very different times.”

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

But Nikola Tesla not only officially electrified the world. His legacy includes groundbreaking work on electric railroads, fluorescent and neon lights, wireless radio communications, X-ray, remote control, turbine engines, speedometers, helicopters, and even torpedoes. By the time of his death, Tesla held nearly 700 worldwide patents.

“Nikola Tesla was one of the world’s greatest inventors. Tesla was like Leonardo da Vinci. He had the mind of a futurist, and he was able to do incredible things.”

George Noory (Radio Host, Coast to Coast AM)

During Nikola Tesla’s time, the Industrial Revolution was firmly taking hold. Factories, using steam and coal power, replaced manual labor. Hundreds of thousands of miles of railway and roads were built, dramatically changing the landscape of society. But this extraordinary innovation came at a price a complete disregard for the environment.

“Nikola Tesla said that there was a difference between progress and technology. Progress benefits mankind. Technology does not necessarily do that. If you have a technology that is polluting the planet, that’s not progress.”

– Tim Swartz (Editor, Conspiracy Journal),
(Editor, Richard Shaver: Reality of Inner Earth),
(Author, Time Travel: Fact Not Fiction),
(The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla)

But just how is it that Nikola Tesla was so far ahead of his time? For decades, the forward-thinking inventor a man shrouded in mystery has fascinated scholars and researchers.

“Tesla came from a very strange area actually wasn’t too far from Transylvania. He was tall and thin. He spoke 11 or 12 different languages. And he does these fantastic inventions and fantastic performances, so he had this mystique about him.”

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

“Nikola Tesla is born at a time which, coincidentally, coincides with an ancient Zoharic prophecy that speaks about the opening of the gates of wisdom upon the earth. And who’s born at this time? Nikola Tesla. Albert Einstein. This is the beginning of so many things.”

Rabbi Ariel Bar Tzadok (Founder, KosherTorah School)

But could there really be something more to the prophecies, rumors and wild speculations surrounding Nikola Tesla? Something, perhaps, even otherworldly?

“Throughout history, there have been various prophets and scientists that have really affected the human evolution. Like Einstein, Galileo, Copernicus, and Tesla’s definitely one of these type of people. We have to wonder if these people aren’t somehow involved in some larger plan of influence on humanity as a whole.”

– Jason Martell
(Founder, AncientSchool),
(Author, Knowledge Apocalypse)

“Some researchers into Tesla think that he was some kind of special human receiver, and if that’s the case, then we have someone who the ETs were helping to move along and develop the amazing inventions that light the world today.”

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

“Is it possible that Tesla knew he was on a mission? Was he attempting to uplevel our technology to the point at which we would be capable of having all of the abilities of those who, in ancient times, were called the gods?”

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

Is it possible, as some Ancient Astronaut Theorists suggest, that Nikola Tesla was being influenced by extraterrestrials? Extraterrestrials on a mission to advance mankind? Perhaps answers can be found by further examining the inspiration behind one of Tesla’s greatest achievements.
