Nikola Tesla, Electrical Genius
Usurped by Economic Trickery of the Oligarchy
Nikola Tesla is the man responsible for laying down much of what we have become familiar with in the 20th and 21st centuries. He laid down a lot more as well, but most of this is suppressed. Some of the suppressed technology is being used in secret, in the manner of war instead of peace. We don not have much of what he developed in common use because of the interference of profiteering and power tycoons who did not want to see their source of income disappear. Having their reigns on the economy as the owners of the means of production, they could dictate what was permissible and more importantly, what was not. Thus despite the fact that alternative technologies have existed for well over a century, we do not have them because of secretiveness, ignorance and censorship compounded by mass poverty. The masses are given toys and instruments useful to serve the rulers, while the elite keep the real tools of power. Despite Tesla's insight and engineering genius, he was in the end, outwitted by the oligarchs who ruled over his financial life in the same manner that economics in plutocracy rules all the rest of us. Tesla admitted that he did not do what he did for the money, but for mankind, but the oligarchs had other plans as exemplified by the treatment by James P Morgan, the power tycoon. Other influential people such as Edison and Westinghouse were involved in his life.
In the end, these people made certain that the government agents secured his papers and experiments right after he died, so that “They would not fall into the wrong hands.” The propaganda of the day suggested that the wrong hands was the USSR. Tesla, who should have benefited enormously from his inventions, died in relative poverty and obscurity, with pigeons as has latter day friends. Those wrong hands, it turns out, are the hands of the people for whom Tesla worked so diligently, as per his own claims, are the working people of the world with whom he could identify due to direct experience hereinafter to be explained. These technologies have been turned on their head and instead of liberating humanity, have been used instead to enslave them. Tesla was a genius of technology but not nearly so bright when dealing with corrupt profiteers and their financial and political hirelings who manipulate the economy to their own benefit. It is why we have the myth of this giant, but not all of his legacy. We make do with a smidgeon of what he accomplished while our overlords run the planet with secret technologies based on what he did to lord it over all of us in a potential if not just rumoured reign of terror.
Tesla was intimately familiar with induction and resonance. It is this understanding that led to his developments. Further, he mastered visualization and could see his ideas without the aid of a sketch. He would literally build his inventions following what he visualized. Notes were often made after the fact of the materialization of his ideas. This was often necessitated by the demands of the patent office and his bosses. It is only due to this that a substantial record exist as well as his careful observations from the Colorado experiments.
Tesla immigrated to the US with a head full of ideas and a few dollars. He had to work menial jobs until he connected with T. Edison and took a job in Edison's development labs. T. Edison, the man credited with the invention of the incandescent light bulb, the phonograph and early movie cameras was actually a businessman who employed engineers and developers as a think tank for the development of new ideas. T. Edison constructed an electrical grid run on direct current as alternating current had not yet been developed. AC was to be Tesla's contribution, which Edison was to reject. Edison hired Tesla to work out problems in various engineering concepts and Tesla preformed well. Where they disagreed was on the methodology of power transmission. By the time Tesla had joined the team, Edison had already established an extensive DC network in New York. The transmission of DC was difficult over long distances and limited sky scrapper height to about five or six storeys. Frequent and expensive booster stations were required. There were also problems with heat dissipation. Tesla's solution was AC power, but this was not acceptable to Edison. Edison wanted a fix and Tesla's solution was incompatible. Tesla eventually wound up dismissed without pay and was forced to work as a ditch digger for more than a year before being tracked down by the more open minded Westinghouse.
After the Edison incident that left him destitute and forced him to work as a ditch digger, he managed to get a job with George Westinghouse. It was under Westinghouse that he was able to develop his AC concepts and put them into use, beginning with the power station erected at Niagara Falls. This first true hydroelectric power station delivered AC power to Boston, Niagara Falls (US side) and other nearby towns. AC quickly proved itself superior in being transmissible over long distances. It also allowed for taller sky scrappers without boosting. AC was not compatible with DC and inverters were required to change from one format to the other. Thus the Westinghouse and Edison power companies were in direct competition. Edison in order to discredit Tesla and Westinghouse built an AC electric chair for the execution of death sentence prisoners. Westinghouse responded with a DC electric chair. There was actually a competition to prove which was more efficient and which was more cruel. Edison coined the term for the AC electric chair, Teslaed, which means that the agonizing death spasms of the electrocuted prisoner was put to death by Tesla's “dangerous AC electricity”. This might be one reasons why Tesla was later to pose in front of highly charged Tesla coils spitting out multimillion volt artificial lightning bolts without harming the engineer. The coup came during the Chicago World's Fair.
Tesla became something of a celebrity, especially after his astonishing success at the Chicago World's Fair and became the darling of the elite, attending many parties in the financial centers. During this exhibition, he lit up the entire fair using AC electricity and fluorescent bulbs, which we still use in profusion today in all office towers, all large institutions and malls. This successful demonstration was the tipping point of transmissible power using the AC method and began the demise of the T. Edison hold on power using DC. This was all based on conductive wires and the real revolution was yet to come. Tesla made at once, a stanch ally and a bitter enemy that was to have consequences later in his life. That revolution was to be born in Colorado Springs where he perfected wireless transmission using UHF power transmission. This was also to be the foundation of all such technology such as remote control, radio transmission, falsely accredited to Marconi who stole Tesla's idea, wireless power transmission and technologies such as HAARP, GWEN and other related engineering arts. He allegedly developed a death ray by supposedly focusing electromagnetic energy much as the much later invented MASER and LASER technologies. This is one of those hotly debated topics that lives outside the knowledge base of almost all people.
This Timely Video Explains the Whole Biz!
Tesla developed and proved with early video making, the viability of wifeless power transmission beginning at Colorado Springs. Later, as it was with Edison, he would end up upsetting Westinghouse when he proposed wireless power transmission. He eventually broke with Westinghouse and finding J. P. Morgan, another power tycoon who was looking for a way to preempt Westinghouse as Westinghouse had done to Edison. J. P. Morgan, a lesser power magnate was seeking a bigger chunk of the market and financed Tesla to accomplish the task for him.
The foundation and establishment of a method of doing things becomes intrenched and serves as a focus and the lynchpin of power. We see this over and over in any field of endeavour such as the Edison – Westinghouse – Morgan power evolution. But J. P. Morgan was seeking to overtake Westinghouse like Westinghouse took over Edison's territory. The J. P. Morgan power company was using the already proven AC delivery method over a wired network. Tesla had new and different ideas in the form of yet another electrical revolution. When anyone establishes a way that will make life easier, the established order will struggle to preserve that way of life in the face of competition real or perceived. This classic historical case serves as an example, concerning the interaction of J. P. Morgan and Nikola Tesla. J. P. Morgan was a tycoon with vast wealth. One of his ways of deriving wealth was through the distribution of electrical power for which he could charge a fee. In his day and up to the modern era, this was and is effected through wires and meters that regulate and calculate power usage for a fee. Tesla's innovative idea was to distribute power wirelessly and he proved that it could be done. At first Morgan funded Tesla's projects at Wardenclyffe Park in New York, but when he discovered what wireless power could do to his electric power empire and one of his sources of wealth, he cancelled the project, tore it down and sequestered Tesla until he died. In 1943, the FBI raided and seized all of Tesla's research notes after he died and hid them in the Smithsonian vaults. Today, some of Tesla's brain children live on in the remote control and the cell phone. However, we do not have electrical power transmitted wirelessly into our homes as there would be problems over collecting fees from unregulated electrical power. There are many more innovations that can be commented on here, but the end of the stories follow similar patterns. The innovator is prevented from completing research. The innovator is bought out and silenced, or the innovator is disappeared. The invention is kept secret or destroyed so that the established ways are allowed to continue. This very same scenario is being played out with the elimination of fossil fuels for cleaner, greener energy sources. But big oil is fighting this tooth an nail.
Tesla's electrical genius did not extend into the corrupt machinations of the manipulated finances of the large international corporatist economy that is designed to exchange the control of real value through the aegis of fiat currencies that are given in exchange and trade. That was not his focus and if it were instead of what he did do, he could well have ranked on the level of the Rothschild financial family. But providence did not play out this way and now we have Teslian technology controlled by big finance, mostly in secret, driving electrical airships that are not the mainstay of public commerce, but the power projection and protection of the elite, who lord it over the natural world and human civilization. This same empire secretly finances, via a black budget, projects based squarely on Tesla's work, such as HAARP, GWEN and dozens of like facilities covering the planet under private for profit control. These devices are said to control weather, control crowds and produce other remarkable effects. Admittedly, mach of this remains in the region of speculation due to the control of information. Some of Tesla's effects we do know about and these we can repeat scientifically. Based on that, we could rediscover what he found, but this has to be done against the financial wind and the power establishment.
There are many ways to generate power or run transport without using fossil fuels, but why is this not going ahead? The answer is simple. There is intervention occurring to block new ideas as this will overturn the old way of doing things and end the flow of cash and the rich life style that comes from keeping people tied into the consumerist way of doing things. Innovation is directed instead to keeping this essential ingredient of the economy running. Consumerism is one of the few things that keeps the current economy going as most business have run out of growth room and markets. Outside of war that levels old markets to make way for new, consumerism is the only thing driving economic expansion in a saturated international market. To keep consumers spending, many devices are used, such as credit, fashion and planned obsolescence. Another way to generate more consumerism, is to destroy old markets in war. Further, with the death of established ways of running the economy, such as fossil fuels, many jobs will be lost to change, though new ones may be created. A movie of this sort of thing was made in Britain called “The Man in the White Suit”, concerning an innovator who made indestructible clothing. The immediate results was the destruction of the economy and massive joblessness in the textile industry. What was once loved became reviled and hated as peoples' lives got more and more miserable.
