Not many people can claim to have had such a lasting influence over all of our lives and yet receive so little notoriety for it as the enigma that was, Nikola Tesla.

“Keep on the lookout for novel ideas that others have used successfully. Your idea has to be original only in its adaptation to the problem you’re working on.”
– Thomas Edison
Nikola Tesla, a Serb by nationality was born in 1856 in what is now modern day Croatia. From a young age he stood out as being gifted, particularly in the fields of electricity and engineering. Tesla had the innate ability to fully create an invention in his mind’s eye before it was ever manifest in reality. His genius attracted the attention of Thomas Edison, who in 1884 invited the young Tesla to America to work for him.
Tesla calmly reads under millions of volts.
Edison had already invented direct current electricity(the current only travels one direction) but it was extremely inefficient and required a power station every two miles. It took Tesla only until 1888 to outdo Edison’s DC when he introduced alternating current(the current travels back and forth in quick intervals) to the world. It was so efficient power lines could run for hundreds of miles between stations and whole cities could now be powered! Edison, who had invested so much of himself into DC was outraged and started a spurious smear campaign against Tesla’s AC, ultimately in vain. But this was not the last time he would face such opposition…
Tesla had a dream of giving the whole world free electricity. He was not a businessman but an inventor and any money he made he pumped back into his inventions. He was though unfortunately surrounded by cutthroat business oligarchs who did not share is altruistic views. His inventions and ideals threatened the established power companies profits and so his workshop was suspiciously burned to the ground, his patents stolen and his name slandered. All this served to do however, was to drive Tesla on. He continued to invent his into his latter years and had even mastered the wireless transmission of electricity.
Some more of Tesla’s most famous inventions and discoveries:
- Alternating Current
- Light – Of course he didn’t invent light itself, but he did invent how light can be harnessed and distributed.
- Remote Control
- Electric Motor
- Wireless Communications
- Limitless Free Energy
The last interview of the great genius Nicola Tesla
JOURNALIST: Who are you, Mr. Tesla?
TESLA: It is an interesting question, Mr Smith, and I’ll try to give an adequate answer.
JOURNALIST: They say you come from Croatia, the city called Lika, where people grow along with the trees, the rocks and the sky. They say that his hometown is named after the flower of the mountain, and the house where he was born is located near the forest and the church.
TESLA: Really all you said is the truth. I am proud of my Serbian origin and my Croatian homeland.
JOURNALIST: The futurists say that the twentieth century and the twenty-first century were born in the head of Nikola Tesla. Nikola, they call you “the hunter who caught the light in his nets from the depths of the earth” and “the warrior who caught fire from heaven.” It is said that Nikola is the father of alternating current, the one that will cause the Physics and Chemistry to dominate half of the world. In the laboratory of Nikola Tesla, he has split an atom for the first time. He has created a weapon that produces seismic vibrations. There they discovered the cosmic rays blacks. Five races will worship him in the future because it has taught them a great secret: that the elements of Empedocles can be watered with the vital forces of the ethers.
TESLA: Yes, these are some of my most important discoveries. Even so I am a man that hasn’t achieved all that he could.
JOURNALIST: What is that “missing” achievement?
TESLA: I wanted to light up the whole earth. We ignore that fact, there is enough electricity to create a second sun. Light would appear around the earth, like a blazing ring around Saturn. Humanity is not prepared for greatness just yet. In Colorado Springs I have enriched the earth with electricity.
Inside the Earth, there are energies of peace, love, and joy that are for example expressed through a wildflower that grows from the earth or food that comes out of it. I’ve spent decades looking for ways to explain and influence people. Life has a limitless number of forms and scientists must find them in all types of matter. Three things are essential in this regard. All I can do is to keep looking for them. I’m sure that I will not find them, but I will not give up.

JOURNALIST: What are these things?
TESLA: The main problem is the food. Can stellar or terrestrial feed organisms on Earth?
Should thirst be watered with wine, so that people can foolishly cheer and think that they’re gods? In the last century, this “disease” had spread in the whole Universe. So the question is; is there an excess of light in the Universe?
Recently, I stumbled upon a star, that could disappear (according to mathematical and astronomical laws), yet nothing would change. That’s because it’s far away in the Galaxy, but its light can be released with such density that it could fit into a sphere smaller than an ordinary apple and it can be more massive than our Solar System at the same time.
What I’m trying to say and prove is hard to explain. It’s extremely revolutionary. My intention isn’t to make flight devices, but I want to teach human beings to regain consciousness and use their own wings. I also want to awake the energy in the air, because it contains huge energy forces. What people consider as an empty space, I recognize as a manifestation of matter that still sleeps and needs to be woken up. There’s no “empty” space around us. Black holes, which supposedly are empty, are the most potent sources of energy and also life.
JOURNALIST: Have you noticed birds that sit on the window of your room at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel on the thirty-third floor?
TESLA: A man must be receptive to birds. It’s because of their wings. We (human beings) once had them real and visible!
JOURNALIST: You have not stopped flying from those distant days in Smiljan.
TESLA: I tried to fly from the roof, but I fell: the calculations of the children can be mistaken. Remember that the wings of youth want to have everything in life!
JOURNALIST: What about marriage? It is not known whether you have affection for love. The photos of you when you were younger show that you were a good looking man.
TESLA: I don’t support marriage. I hate the tendency of women to push aside man, replacing the old spirit of cooperation with him in all the affairs of life, is very disappointing to me.
Women don’t seem to want that sort of thing today. They want to dominate and govern. They want man to look up to them, instead of their looking up to him.”
JOURNALIST: (People complain that he is attacking relativity.) The unusual thing is your claim that matter has no energy. Everything is imbued with energy, so where is it then?
TESLA: First, there was the energy and then the matter.
JOURNALIST: It’s like when you told that you were born to your family and not of yourself.
TESLA: Exactly! Just like the birth of the Universe! The matter is created from the light (endless energy). Because of light, the stars, the planets, the human beings, and everything else on Earth and in the Universe emerged. The matter is actually an expression of endless forms of light because the energy is older than it.
Currently, there are four laws of Creation.
The first is that the mind can not conceive or mathematically measure the source of the whole bewildering and dark plot, if that plot fits the entire Universe.
The second law lives in expansive darkness, which is the true nature of light.
The third one is the need for light to become a matter of light.
The fourth law is: there is no beginning or end; The three previous laws always happen and the Creation is eternal.
JOURNALIST: In hatred to Theory of Relativity you go so far that you hold conferences against your creator at your parties. Why is that?
TESLA: Space is not curved! The main issue is the human mind which can’t understand eternity and infinity. It relativity was clearly understood by its creator then he would be immortal if he wanted that. I’m a part of the light. The light charges my senses. I can hear, feel, smell, see, think, and touch.
Lightning can be an entire sonata, and a thousand lightning balls can be a concert. I created a ball of lightning that can be head in the Himalayas.
There’s a difference between these two, and scientists should understand that. Equations and numbers are only signs of the spheres. If Einstein had really heard those sound, we wouldn’t have created the Theory of Relativity. These sounds are messages for our minds and show us that the Universe exists in perfect harmony. Even the smallest star in the Galaxy is the part of the celestial symphony. Also the heartbeats of beings on earth. Mr. Newton learned that the secret is in geometric arrangement and the path of the celestial bodies. Newton noticed that the supreme law of harmony, unlike Einstein who is the messenger of noise, with his curved space theory. Curved space is chaos and not music.
JOURNALIST: Mr Tesla, you hear that music?
TESLA: Listening always. My spiritual hearing is as large as the sky above us. I increased my natural hearing with the radar. According to the Theory of Relativity, two parallel lines will meet nell’infiito. For that reason, the curvature of space of Einstein will straighten. Once created, the sound lasts forever, for a man can disappear, but continues to exist in silence, which is the largest power of man. No, I have nothing against Mr. Einstein. He is a very kind person and has done many good things, some of which will go to join the music. I write to him and try to explain that the ether exists, and that its particles are those that keep the universe in harmony, and life in eternity.
REPORTER: Tell me, please, what conditions must undergo an Angel on Earth?
TESLA: I have ten. I keep a good track record attentive.
JOURNALIST: will document all his words, estimated Mr. Tesla.
TESLA: The first requirement is a high sense of mission and the work to be done. Must, if only vaguely, to exist in the early days. We are not falsely modest: the oak knows he is an oak tree, a shrub at its Finch to be a shrub. When I was twelve, I was sure that I would come to Niagara Falls. I knew from my childhood that I realized most of my findings, although I had not entirely clear … The second condition is the determination to adapt. All I could, I finished him off.
JOURNALIST: What is the third condition of adaptation, Mr Tesla?
TESLA: Guide for all the vital energies and spiritual work. Therefore, many of the purifiazione efftti and the need that man has. As a result, I have not lost anything, I’ve just gained. So savor every day and every night. Write down: Nikola Tesla was a happy man … The fourth requirement is to adapt the set fiico with work.
REPORTER: What does that mean, Mr. Tesla?
TESLA: First, maintaining the whole. The human body is a perfect machine. I know my circuit and what is good for it. The foods that most people eat, for me are harmful and dangerous. Sometimes I see the cooks of the whole world who are all conspiring against me … touches my hand.
REPORTER: It’s cold.
TESLA: Yes. The blood stream can be controlled, and many processes within and around us. Why he is scared, young?
JOURNALIST: Mark Twain wrote “The mysterious stranger”, a wonderful book of Satan, inspired by her.
TESLA: The word “Lucifer” is more affscinante. To Mr. Twain likes to joke. When I was a child when I was healed by reading his books. When we met here and I told him, he was so moved that she began to cry. We became friends and he was often in my lab. Once he asked me to show him a machine that through the vibration causes a feeling of happiness. It was one of those inventions for entertainment, that sometimes I like to do. Warned Mr. Twain not to stay for too long exposed to the vibration. He made the case and there was more time than necessary. He ended up rushing like a rocket in a certain room supporting himself pants. It was devilishly fun, although I stay serious. But, to adapt the circuit fiico, in addition to food, sleep is very important. After a long and exhausting, it requires a superhuman effort, only after an hour of sleep I have completely recovered. I gained the ability to manage sleep, go to sleep and wake up at the appointed time. If I do something I do not understand, I force myself to think about it during sleep to find such a solution. The fifth condition of adaptation is memory. Perhaps in most people, the brain is the guardian of knowledge about the world and knowledge is acquired through life. My brain is engaged in the most important things to remember is collecting what is required at a given time, that is, everything that surrounds us. It is only to internalize it. All you once we have seen, heard, read and learned, takes us in the form of light particles. For me, these particles are obedient and faithful. Student memorized Faust, Goethe, my favorite book, in German, and now I can recite it all. I kept my inventions for years “in my head”, before carrying them out.

REPORTER: She often mentions the power of visualization.
TESLA: I have to thank the display for all that I have invented. The events of my life and my inventions are real before my eyes, as any event or object. In my youth I was afraid of not knowing what it was, but later learned to use this power as an exceptional talent and a gift. It harbored and was protecting jealously. I also made corrections by means of the display to most of my inventions, and so the I completed. By displaying the mentally solve complex mathematical equations. For this gift that I have, I get the title of High Lama in Tibet. My eyes and ears are perfect, and I dare say even stronger than in the other. I hear thunder 150 kilometers away and I see colors in the sky, that others can not see. This breadth of vision and hearing I have since I was a child. Later I developed consciously.
REPORTER: In his youth he was seriously ill several times. The disease is a requirement to fit?
TESLA: Yes. It is often the result of excessive exhaustion or life force, but it is often the purifiazione of the mind and the body of toxins that have accumulated. It is necessary that a man soffa occasionally. The source of most diseases is in the spirit. Therefore, the spirit can cure almost all diseases. When I was a student, I got sick of cholera that destroyed the region of Lika. I cared because fialmente my father allowed me to study the technology, that was my life. The vision for me was not a disease, but the mind’s ability to penetrate beyond the three dimensions of the Earth. I had visions of my whole life, and I got them like all the other phenomena that surround us. Once, in childhood, I was walking along the fume with my uncle and said: “From the water you will see a trout, throw a stone to hit her.” And that was what happened. Frightened and surprised, my uncle said: “Get behind me, Satan!”.Was cultured and spoke in Latin … I was in Paris when I saw my mother’s death. In the sky, full of light and music, flttuavano clouds, were wonderful creatures. One of them looked like the mother looked at me with love infiito. As the vision disappeared, I knew that my mother had died.

JOURNALIST: What is the seventh adaptation, Mr Tesla?
TESLA: The knowledge of how to transform the mental energy and life into what we want, and be able to control all the feelings. Hindus call it Kundalini yoga. These skills can be learned, and to do that it takes several years, or it may also acquire at birth. Most of them I have acquired the birth. They are found in close relation with the sexual energy which is one of the largest in the universe. The woman is the biggest thief of that energy, and therefore of spiritual power. I always knew and what I was on alert. Of myself I did what I wanted: a machine riflssiva and spiritual.
JOURNALIST: Ninth adaptation, Mr Tesla?
TESLA: Do everything you can, every day, at any time, not to forget who we are and why we are on Earth. There are extraordinary people who are struggling with illness, deprivation, or against society that hurts them with his stupidity, misunderstanding, persecution and other problems that the country is full. There are many fallen angels on Earth.
JOURNALIST: What is the tenth adaptation?
TESLA: It is the most important. Write in the journal that Mr Tesla played. He spent his entire life playing and it has enjoyed.
JOURNALIST: Mr Tesla! Both in relation to its conclusions or to his work, this is a game?
TESLA: Yes, dear boy. As I wanted to play with electricity! Always we tremble when I hear the story of the greek who stole fire. A terrible story of eagles pecking at his liver. Will that Zeus had suffienti thunder and lightning, and it was damaged by a fervor? There is a misunderstanding … The flashes are the toys most beautiful to be found anywhere.Do not forget to emphasize, in his text, that Nikola Tesla was the first man who discovered the rays.
JOURNALIST: Mr Tesla, she is speaking of angels and its adaptation to Earth.
TESLA: It’s actually the same thing. He can write the following: dared take upon itself the prerogatives of Indra, Zeus and Perun. Imagine one of these gods in a black night dress, with a bowler hat and white cotton gloves, preparing rays, fires and earthquakes to the elite of the city of New York!
JOURNALIST: Readers like the tone of our newspaper. Confuses me saying that his findings have enormous benefii for people and simultaneously represent a game, many will see him with a puzzled expression.
TESLA: Dear Mr. Smith, the problem is that people take everything very seriously. If they did so, they would all be happier and would live much longer. A Chinese proverb says that the alarmism shortens life. But affihé newspaper readers not corrughino forehead, back to things they consider important.
REPORTER: They would like to know his fiosofia.
TESLA: Life is a rhythm that must be understood. I feel the rhythm, let me direct and humor him. It is very nice and gave me the knowledge I have. All that you live is a strong connection and wonderful: the man and the stars, the amoebas and the sun, the heart and the rotation of a number infiito worlds. These bonds are strong, but they can be docile, propitiate and begin to create new relationships and diffrenti in the world, without violating the old.Knowledge comes from space. Our vision is all the more perfect. We have two eyes: the land and the spiritual. It is recommended that you turn into one eye. The Universe is alive in all its manifestations, as a thinking animal. The stone is a thinking, sensitive, such as plants, animals and humans. A shining star asks to be seen and if we were not so identified with ourselves we would understand his language and his message. The breath, the eyes and ears of man must harmonize with the breath, the eyes and ears of the Universe.
JOURNALIST: Hearing this I seem to listen to Buddhist texts, words or Parazulzusa Taoist.
TESLA: It is so! This signifia that there is a general understanding, and there is the truth that man has always possessed. In my feeling and experience, the universe has a single substance and a higher energy infiito with a number of manifestations of life. The best thing is that the discovery of a secret nature reveals the other. You can not hide, they are all around us, but we are blind and deaf to them. If we become attached emotionally to them, they themselves come to us. There are a bunch of apples, but only one Newton. He needed only one apple that fell in front.
JOURNALIST: If I ask a question that might have been made at the beginning of this conversation: what was electricity for her, dear Mr. Tesla?
TESLA: Everything is electricity. At first it was light, without fie source from which the material and is distributed to all forms representing the Universe and the Earth with all aspects of life. Black is the true face of the light, we just do not see it. It is a great grace to humans and other creatures. Each of them has light particles, thermal, nuclear power, radiation, chemical, mechanical and energy still not identifcata. It has the power to create the Earth in its orbit. It is the true lever of Archimedes.
JOURNALIST: Mr Tesla, she is too biased towards electricity.
TESLA: Are electricity. Or, if you prefer, I am the light in human form. She’s electricity, Mr Smith, but not realize it.
JOURNALIST: It is for this reason that it has the ability to withstand shocks than a million volts through his body?
TESLA: Imagine a gardener who will be attacked from the herbs. In fact, this would be madness. Man’s body and brain are composed of a large amount of energy. In me it exists in most of the electricity. The energy, which is diffrente in every person, is what makes the human being “I” or “soul”. For other creatures in their essence, the soul of the plant is the soul of minerals and animals. Brain function and death occur in the light. My eyes were blacks in his youth, now are blue, and over time, as the voltage of the brain becomes stronger, will move closer to white. White is the color of the sky. To my fiestra one morning came a white dove, which I fed. She wanted to tell me that he was dying. His eyes came out light beams. I have never seen in the eyes of any creature as much light as in those of the dove.
JOURNALIST: The staff speaks in his laboratory of sparkles of light, fire and lightning that occur if you are angry or in some type of risk.
TESLA: You download the psychic or a warning to be alert. The light was always on my side. He knows how I discovered the rotating magnetic field and induction motor, what I became famous when I was 26? One summer afternoon, in Budapest, I saw with my friend the sunset. Thousands of fires turned into thousands of colors fimmeggianti. I was reminded of Faust and recited his poems and later, in a daze, I saw turning the magnetic field and the induction motor. I saw them in the Sun!
JOURNALIST: The staff of the hotel says that when lightning normally island in his room and talks to himself.
TESLA: I speak with lightning and thunder.
REPORTER: With them? In that speech, Mr Tesla?
TESLA: Mainly in my mother tongue. The language relies on words and sounds, especially in poetry, so it’s appropriate.
JOURNALIST: The readers of the magazine would be very grateful if you would explain this thing.
TESLA: The sound does not exist only in the thunder and lightning, also exists in the processing, luster and color. A color can be heard. Language is the words, which signifia that is of sound and color. All the thunder and lightning are diffrenti and have their names. I call some of them with the names of those who were close to me in my life, or those who admire him. In the brightness of the sky and thunder they live my mother, my sister, my brother Daniel, a poet: Jovanovic Zmaj and other people of Serbian history. Names such as Isaiah, Ezekiel, Leonardo, Beethoven, Goya, Faraday, Pushkin and the whole array of blazing fires and plots of thunder and lightning, which occur throughout the night carrying the precious rain to Earth, burning trees or villages. There are rays and thunder that are brighter and more powerful, back and recognize them among thousands.
REPORTER: For her science and poetry are the same thing?
TESLA: These are the two eyes of a person. A William Blake was taught that the universe was born from the imagination, that remains and will exist chips there will be one last man on Earth. It was the wheel with which astronomers were able to collect the stars of all galaxies. It is the creative energy identical to the energy of light.
REPORTER: You said that I am, like every being, light. This flatters me, but I confess I do not understand it very well.
TESLA: Why you need to understand, Mr. Smith? Just believe. Everything is light. In one of its rays is the fate of nations. Every nation has its reach in this great source of light that we see the sun. And remember that there is no man that existed and he is not dead! He turned into light and as such still exists. The secret lies in the fact that the particles of light restoring its original state.
REPORTER: This is the resurrection!
TESLA: I prefer to call back to the original energy. Christ and many others knew the secret. I’m looking for a way to preserve human energy. These are forms of light, sometimes directly as a celestial light. I try not to my benefiio, but for the good of all. I think my findings make life easier by people and more bearable, and channeled the people towards spirituality and morality.
REPORTER: Do you think the time will be abolished?
TESLA: Not entirely, because the first characteristic is that the energy is transformed. It is in perpetual transformation, like the clouds of the Taoists. But you can jump on the fact that man retains consciousness after the earthly life. In all corners of the universe there is the energy of life; one of them is immortality, whose origin is outside man and waiting for him. The universe is spiritual, as half of us. The Universe is more moral than us, because we do not know its nature and the way of harmonizing our life with it. I am a scientist, science is perhaps the most convenient way to find the answer to the question that haunts me and always makes my days and my nights are turned into fire.
JOURNALIST: What is the question?
TESLA: As the eyes shine …! What I want to know is what happens to a shooting star when the sun goes out … Stars fall like dust or seeds in this or in other worlds, and the sun is lost in our minds, in the lives of many beings, it is to reborn as a new light, or the cosmic wind, scattered nell’infiito. I understand that this must include it in the structure of the Universe. The question is, however, that each of these stars and each of these alone, even the smallest, is preserved.
IURNALIST: But Mr. Tesla, realizes that this is necessary and is included in the constitution of the world?
TESLA: When a man becomes conscious, his highest goal must be run to a shooting star and groped to capture it.He must understand that his life was given to him for this and it will be saved. It shall be possible to catch the stars!
REPORTER: And what will happen then?
TESLA: The Creator will laugh saying: “They fall solely affihé you the chase and you get control of them.”
REPORTER: This is not the opposite of cosmic pain that so often she mentions in his writings? And cos’ is the cosmic pain?
TESLA: No, because we are on Earth … It is a disease of the existence of which the vast majority of people are not aware that originates and many other diseases, the soffrenza, misery, evil, wars and everything else, everything that makes human life is a condition absurd and horrible. This disease can not be cured completely, but consciousness makes it less complicated and dangerous. Whenever any of the people closest to me and care were injured, I felt the pain fiico. This is because our bodies are made from the same material, and our soul is related fii inseparable. The incomprehensible sadness that sometimes overwhelms us signifia that somewhere on the other side of the planet, a child or a generous man died. The entire universe is in some periods sufferer himself and us.The disappearance of a star and the appearance of comets will affect them more than we can imagine. Relations between the creatures of the Earth are even stronger because of our feelings and thoughts the fire will smell even more or will fall into silence. We have to learn these truths to be healed. The remedy is in our hearts and also in the heart of the animal we call Universe.
8 FAMOUS QUOTES OF NIKOLA TESLA
1. Maybe sometimes it is better, in our world today, that revolutionary idea or invention, instead of being encouraged and applauded, both hampered and abused in his teens.
2. Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man ceases to exist.
3. Human development depends basically the invention. It is the most important product of his creative brain.
4.Mutual understanding will be greatly facilitated by the use of a universal language.
5. I invested all my money in experiments to make new discoveries enabling mankind to have a life a little ‘easier.
6. There is most intense emotion for an inventor who see one of his creations work.
7. The scientist does not look for an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas are easily accepted. His duty is to lay the foundations affiché indicate the way to those who are.
8. A tool cheap, no bigger than a watch, will enable its bearer to hear anywhere, at sea or on land, music or songs, or a speech by a political leader, dictated in any other remote location. Likewise, any design or photographers will be transferred from one place to another.
