Nikola Tesla, The Man Who Electrified The World

Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), was the discoverer of the alternating current light and power system in use all over the world today. His inventions should have made him a multimillionaire, but he died in relative poverty. He was a true martyr for science and human progress.

In 1884, a poor Serbian immigrant named Nikola Tesla arrived in the United States – at that time the land of the free… Though he was poor in this world’s goods, he was rich in ideas that would eventually light up the United States… and the entire world.

While walking in Budapest Park, Hungary, Nikola Tesla had seen a vision of a functioning alternating current (AC) electric induction motor.

This was one of the most revolutionary inventions in the entire history of the world. Before coming to the U.S., Nikola worked for about a year for the French branch of the Edison Electric Light Co.

The Edison Company was totally locked into DIRECT CURRENT (DC) and wanted nothing to do with Tesla’s AC current. Tesla actually offered his invention to a German company in Strassburg, Alsace, then a part of Germany.

Here is what happened:

“The Mayor brought together a number of wealthy Strassburgers. To them the new motor was shown in operation, and the new system and its possibilities described, by both Tesla and the Mayor. The demonstration was a success from the technical viewpoint but otherwise a total loss. Not one member of the group showed the slightest interest.

Tesla was dejected. It was beyond his comprehension that the greatest invention in electrical science, with unlimited commercial possibilities, should be rejected so completely.” (O’ Neill, Prodigal Genius, pp. 56-57).

The U.S. manager of the French branch of the Edison Company advised him to seek his fortune in the New World.

On the way to the boat he actually lost all his possessions and he arrived in New York with 4 cents in his pocket. After Sept., 20, 1870 , millions of Roman Catholic immigrants from Europe were pouring into this country, and their only interest in the United States was its vast economic and military potential to restore the lost Papal States to their master in Rome.

Tesla was Greek Orthodox and only interested in the use of electricity to ease the heavy burdens of his fellow human beings.

    Tesla was a Genius and at the same time Mad ( crazy ) … Alas he could not get opportunity to show his inventions otherwise the Flora and fauna would have been intact and a develped Planet Earth . !!

    It was indeed Both technology and the ill-minded industrialist that brought down tesla.
    It was Never just one of the two. Infact many of his experiments Only failed due to electrical and material setbacks. The downfall of the Wryclyfe Free energy tower was due to not only technological shortcomings, but due to the fact that it was shut down because of no funding. Had it been provided, it may have been succesful. Point being, he had his concepts correct and his theories rock solid, even when one makes a tesla Turbine or engine today, there are modern improvments, machining techniques and processses by only which it is possible to do so.

    That being said, any tech at first is crude, if it is promoted, used, experimented, if it is allowed to flourish only then will it reach its full potential.

    All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or tenuity beyond conception, filling all space, the akasha or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never ending cycles all things and phenomena.
    Nikola Tesla
    Inventor of the alternating current induction motor and generator, “Man’s Greatest Achievement,” 1907.

    Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point in the universe.
    Nikola Tesla – Inventor, AC Motors & Generators, RF circuit tuning, robotics.

    The universal matter is created out of prana since prana is aakaash in motion, and aakaash is the primordial superfluid substratum of the universe.
    Paramahamsa Tewari
    Engineer, Physicist, and Inventor
    Spiritual Foundations, 1996

    All the powers in the universe are already ours. It is we who have put our hands before our eyes and cry that it is dark. Swami Vivekananda – Introduced Tesla to Vedic Cosmology and Sanskrit Terminology.

    Indeed, Tesla was a Modern Prometheus, Serbian Orthodox AND a renewable energy engineer.

    Perhaps if the advances made in metallurgy and materials science had kept up with him, even his renewable energy designs would have come into fruition much, much sooner. With vision always focused on the future, perhaps solar electric/photovoltaics, geothermal steam plants, combined heat and power (CHP) and ocean energy thermal conversion (OTEC) would be more mainstream today if he would have had the advanced materials and finances at his disposal to fabricate his design drawings.

    It sadly took until the 1980s for materials engineering/science metallurgy to catch-up, so the Tesla Turbine could be independently verified as Tesla predicted it would perform; not only as an engine, but a pump, as well. And it took until the 1980s for OTEC plant research to come into reality. I find it utterly disheartening that he profited very little by so many of his discoveries.

    The man just needed everyone to catch-up with him.

      It was actually not the metallurgy etc that held Tesla back…it was the oil/utility cartel of Rockefeller, JPMorgan, Rothschilds that decided to allow Tesla to freely give away electricity was not profitable enough, end of discussion!

      They will still not allow cheap renewable energy, or Thorium power stations. They want oil to be very expensive with very inefficient engines, that suits their business and to hell with mankind!

        Well, let’s change that. Form a secret society, and attempt to build the plants and provide clean, limitless energy to everyone, then unveil it to the world. Keeping a close eye on it in case any other jealous scientists decide to try to defame its workings through psychological sabotage. Wink, wink.

    What do you have to do to be able to just do a simple download??? I signed up for this ‘Boxc’ account, that I apparently do not need, and I still get no download! I click on the first download and it takes me to another site called ‘Box’. Then it states that I have to click on ‘Download’ again!!! I do, but it does nothing! How many download pages do you need to go through? Should one be enough? This is ridiculous! I might as well cancel because I am not getting anything out of this.

      hi, did you ever get the book as I just downloaded it by going to a website. NO Sign up/logon etc.

      I’m like you, just give me the info….lol.

      WillG72 just click that link again and when you get to the Box site along the top click that download link and it will download the entire works as a PDF…so check your downloads folder for the PDF of the same title. This is all I did…NO registration or fuss…just simple download from a server…. the fact that you must go to another site to download is only because that site is allowing it to be utilized as source and provides a home for sites who do not have the capacity to provide direct download options, or cannot sustain the bandwidth to support them if it is popular, so these torrent and other “source” sites are the easy answer and also allows them to get additional exposure by those browsing the source sites for interesting torrents and thereby attracting new people to their site without paying for promotional advertising.

      Hope this helps you get the file, I’m sure we could use as many people investigating and trying to reproduce these genius works!

    This is not accurate- Tesla was Serbian Orthodox!
