Inspirational Quote of the Day: One by Nikola Tesla


Nikola Tesla (Serbian Cyrillic: Никола Тесла; 10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian-American[2][3][4] inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.[5]

Born and raised in the Austrian Empire, Tesla received an advanced education in engineering and physics in the 1870s and gained practical experience in the early 1880s working in telephony and at Continental Edison in the new electric power industry. He emigrated to the United States in 1884, where he would become a naturalized citizen. He worked for a short time at the Edison Machine Works in New York City before he struck out on his own. With the help of partners to finance and market his ideas, Tesla set up laboratories and companies in New York to develop a range of electrical and mechanical devices. His alternating current (AC) induction motor and related polyphase AC patents, licensed by Westinghouse Electric in 1888, earned him a considerable amount of money and became the cornerstone of the polyphase system which that company would eventually market.

Attempting to develop inventions he could patent and market, Tesla conducted a range of experiments with mechanical oscillators/generators, electrical discharge tubes, and early X-ray imaging. He also built a wireless-controlled boat, one of the first ever exhibited. Tesla became well known as an inventor and would demonstrate his achievements to celebrities and wealthy patrons at his lab, and was noted for his showmanship at public lectures.

  1. Great quote! To PONDER things, you do need aloneness, quietness.

    Great timing, too, as about a week ago I had a heavy case of Tesla on the brain & was reading more about him after seeing this quote by Tesla’s friend & biographer, John O’Neill, posted at several Electro-Sensitive sites. In his later years he literally was TORTURED from his life-long over-exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation via his experiments (Alternating Current/ELF & Microwaves/Wireless-RF, etc.):

    In the case of Tesla, it was reported in his biography written by his friend John O’Neill that he suffered greatly in his later years:

    *“To doctors he appeared at death’s door. The strange manifestations he exhibited attracted the attention of a renowned physician, who declared that medical science could do nothing to aid him. One of the symptoms of the illness was an acute sensitivity of all the sense-organs. His senses had always been extremely keen, but this sensitivity was now so tremendously exaggerated that the effects were a form of torture. The ticking of a watch three rooms away sounded like the beat of hammers on an anvil. The vibration of ordinary city traffic, when transmitted through a chair or bench, pounded through his body. It was necessary to place the legs of his bed on rubber pads to eliminate the vibrations. Ordinary speech sounded like thunderous pandemonium. The slightest touch had the mental effect of a tremendous blow. A beam of sunlight shining on him produced the effect of an internal explosion. In the dark he could sense an object at a distance of a dozen feet by a peculiar creepy sensation in his forehead. His whole body was constantly wracked by twitches and tremors. His pulse, he said, would vary from a few feeble throbs per minute to more than a hundred and fifty. Throughout this mysterious illness he was fighting with a powerful desire to recover his normal condition.”*

    So sad for him. Amazingly, Tesla lived to age 86, died in 1943 in a hotel room; he had lived in NYC 60 years, one of the first cities to be electrified, in addition to his over-exposing himself to EMR. has a fairly good write-up like Wiki. He sold his AC patents to Westinghouse for a measely $60k !! He was broke most of his life. He invented Wireless-RF two years before Marconi but Marconi, having big bucks, was able to market himself & get all the attention while Tesla faded away.

    I’m not a fan of his inventions, though. They are what is harming people > wireless Microwave RF Radiation (smart meters are the worst yet because it travels on all the wall-wiring; but also WiFi, Small Cells, Celltowers, etc.); + Alternating Current produces oscillations, polarizing & depolarizing & is prone to “Dirty Electricity” (harmonics & transients) due to the tons of electronics & their DC-to-AC adapters plugged in to the power supply; + those horridly bright-white flickering Fluorescent Lights that spew out magnetic fields & in the old days were made with PCBs. (Yes, Tesla invented Fluorescent Lights, too!)

    Edison invented Direct Current (DC) which is what Europe uses & is supposedly not as bad. But I guess Westinghouse won the battle over here because all of North America is Alternating Current. There was one small remaining pocket somewhere in NY still using DC. I just saw an article the other day that it was finally being removed after 100+ years & being turned into AC.

    There’s more interesting scoop on Telsa – the Tesla/Trump connection…

      • OOOPS! That’s FRED TRUMP, not John G. Sorry about that; they were on the same page. Please feel free to delete Fred.

        Here’s John G. Trump:

    • Re: The above biographical quote re Tesla: “One of the symptoms of the illness was an acute sensitivity of all the sense-organs. His senses had always been extremely keen, but this sensitivity was now so tremendously exaggerated that the effects were a form of torture.”

      The sensory organs are a part of the Central Nervous System. If you fry the latter, you fry the former. Here’s how Tesla most likely destroyed his own CNS:

      “…Edison and his backers utilized the general ‘dangers’ of electric current to instill fear in Nikola Tesla’s alternative: Alternating Current. As proof, Edison sometimes electrocuted animals at demonstrations. Consequently, Edison gave the world the electric chair, while simultaneously maligning Tesla’s attempt to offer safety at a lower cost. Tesla responded by demonstrating that AC was perfectly safe by famously shooting current through his own body to produce light.”

    TESLA – TRUMP CONNECTION (historically-speaking)

    After Tesla’s death in 1943, the Govt. confiscated his documents & had John G. Trump (1907-1985), MIT Professor & Electrical Engineer (& POTUS’ UNCLE & namesake!) review, analyze & “translate” Tesla’s documents from “science-speak” into “plain English” to see what of it they could use in the “war effort.”

    …the scientific expert charged with reviewing Nikola Tesla’s posthumously confiscated papers was a Radiation Lab Steering Committee member and Assistant Director by the name of John G. Trump (1907-1985). For our military, John G. Trump translated the Tesla papers from Scientist to English. Our military, in turn, decided which of Tesla’s ideas were of military value and thus worthy of further exploration. John G. Trump went on to serve as the head of the British Branch of the MIT Radiation Laboratory.

    If you are wondering… yes, John G. Trump was the uncle of the new United States President Donald J. Trump. In fact, The Donald’s middle name of ‘John’ was given to him in honor of his uncle.
    3/13/17: “Chemtrails Exposed: Truly A New Manhattan Project” by Peter A. Kirby:
    –That is a long detailed & very interesting article from a book by the same author re Atomic Warfare To Weather Warfare which are related, believe it or not, in the minds of the spooks who invented both!

    More Specifically, time-wise:
    During 1940, he [JGTrump] joined the newly formed National Defense Research Committee (NDRC), as technical aide to Karl Compton, President of MIT and the Chairman of the Radar Division.

    (Me: Previous to that, JGTrump was into hospital X-ray machines.)

    During 1942, Trump became Secretary of the Microwave Committee, a sub-committee of the NDRC. The director of the Microwave Committee was Alfred Lee Loomis, the millionaire physicist, who decided to create a laboratory. He selected a site for it, chose a suitably discreet and ambiguous name for it and funded the construction, until the Federal administration was established. The new institution was the MIT Radiation Laboratory, or the “Rad Lab”.
    In 1943, as the technical aide in Division 14 of the NDRC, Trump reviewed and analyzed the papers of Dr. Nikola Tesla when Dr. Tesla died in a NY hotel. The research was completed on behalf of the Alien property Custodian office in Washington DC. From February 1944 to the end of the war in Europe, Trump was the Director of the BBRL [“British Branch of the Radiation Laboratory”].

    During this time, Trump also served in the Advisory Specialist Group on Radar, advising USAAF General Carl Spaatz on navigational radar, precision-bombing radar, and also defenses against the German radars found in their night-fighters and in their flak units. The systems included: Gee, Oboe, LORAN, H2X, MEW & SCR-584. Trump worked with all the most important British radar experts, including Sir Robert Watson-Watt, A.P. Rowe and Bernard Lovell. At the end of the war, Trump also had interviews with Germany’s main radar technicians. …
    During 1946 Trump, Robert J. Van de Graaff, and Denis M. Robinson initiated the High Voltage Engineering Corporation (HVEC) to produce Van de Graaff generators.
    The National Academy of Engineering described Trump as “a pioneer in the scientific, engineering and medical applications of high voltage machinery”. James Melcher, Trump’s lab director, is quoted as saying: “John, over a period of three decades, would be approached by people of all sorts because he could make megavolt beams of ions and electrons – death rays. … What did he do with it? Cancer research, sterilizing sludge out in Deer Island [a waste disposal facility], all sorts of wondrous things. He didn’t touch the weapons stuff.”

    He returned to MIT to teach and direct research for three decades after the war.

    So, how about that! No wonder POTUS loves TECHNOLOGY. It’s “in his blood,” so to speak. I wonder if UNCLE JOHN GEORGE TRUMP told NEPHEW DONALD JOHN TRUMP any of Tesla’s MICROWAVE secrets that the militaries & utilities are using? 😉

  3. I was looking for a photo of John G. Trump & this crazy spoof site showed up re Tesla & Trump & their Time Machine. However, it does mention the govt. confiscation of Tesla’s papers (as does Wiki & ActivistPost) so I’ll include that part:

    Two days later [after Tesla’s death on 1/7/43], FBI NYC notified Hoover of Tesla’s death and shared a report that his safe has been raided by family and colleagues. The Office of the Alien Property Custodian — an agency now known for seizing half a billion dollars of private property during WWII — became involved and decided to make off with anything not nailed down. Two truck loads of stuff went off to a Manhattan warehouse where Tesla already had stored 30 barrels of other stuff and it was all placed under seal.

    Did Tesla’s stuff include new technologies? Did his vast quantity of notes contain anything of value to US military or industry? (If you are not familiar with Tesla’s later theories, he explored fantastic topics like free energy, anti-gravity, invisibility, and yes; time travel — all topics of great interest to US military at the time.) The National Defense Research Committee, now in charge of the burglary/salvage operation, brought in an MIT professor [John G. Trump] to make sense of it all and get the answers.
    John poured over the barrels, crates, boxes, bags, trunks and suitcases of stuff and finally came back with a conclusion: nothing of new significance. The story ends here with everyone going home disappointed.

    But wait! John was lying. The MIT professor was smart enough to know that if the National Defense Research Committee got its hands on what he found, it could mean the end of the world. Because what he had found was nothing less than blueprints for a time machine.

    I’ll leave it at that as it sounds like a crazy spoof story, though they have a cool faded out (manipulated) old photo of Tesla & POTUS… next…

  4. Better bigger than the one I added further above:

    Uh, yeah, I think all that “energy” could severely mess up Tesla’s CNS & cause his sensitivities limit to go over the edge.
