Doesn't matter who is in control, think about what Tesla did, he only worked with what is there, this universe. Anyone can come to the same logical conclusions as Tesla did for this very reason.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5490498


I'm not sure you know much about Tesla if you say this. He was special, to say the least. Maybe we have the design potential to receive what he did, but as of right now it's just that, potential. None like him have come before or since. Maybe Leedskalnin, but this is maybe apples and oranges somewhat. Or maybe apples and some fruit no one cares about.

And it still matters who is in control because they suppressed his work and they've suppressed others who have followed in his footsteps. The people in control is exactly why this call to release the info is even a reality. And is why it will never happen until that problem is resolved first.

Dude,

I work with high voltage/high frequency electricity. This is my occupation. I do this for a living.

I have done Tesla experiments.

There is nothing mysterious going on... or forgotten.

Tesla was a great man, but his time has passed. The secrets he took to his grave were of no value.

People still believe Tesla had knowledge of some vast power and crazy shit.

If you seek true innovation... then Tesla is the wrong path.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1152779


Hehe, except Tesla's greatest work was done by manipulating the ether via electric induction. Why is it that most who claim to understand the work of Tesla don't believe in the existence of the ether as the medium which all energy is derived from and induced? This was Tesla's belief and he developed one-way wireless transmission of power based off of this.

I am curious, what Tesla experiments have to replicated? Surely you have tried to recreate his Magnifying Transmitter? If you were unsuccessfully it was because you did it incorrectly, otherwise you would have had first had experience of longitudinal transmission of magneto-dielectric waves.

Eric Dollard developed a Four Quadrant Electrical Theory based on Oliver Heavisides interpretations of Maxwells equations, and if one is to perform accurate replication of Tesla technology it would be wise to reference Eric's material as he has laid it all out in a very coherent set of writings, and I believe is the only known person to reproduce effects noted by Tesla of utmost importance.

Re: The call to release Nikola Tesla's Research-Jan. 7th 2012
Quoting part of the article I posted:

A DEPARTURE FROM KNOWN METHODS—POSSIBILITY OF A "SELF-ACTING" ENGINE OR MACHINE, INANIMATE, YET CAPABLE, LIKE A LIVING BEING, OF DERIVING ENERGY FROM THE MEDIUM—THE IDEAL WAY OF OBTAINING MOTIVE POWER.

When I began the investigation of the subject under consideration, and when the preceding or similar ideas presented themselves to me for the first time, though I was then unacquainted with a number of the facts mentioned, a survey of the various ways of utilizing the energy of the medium convinced me, nevertheless, that to arrive at a thoroughly satisfactory practical solution a radical departure from the methods then known had to be made. The windmill, the solar engine, the engine driven by terrestrial heat, had their limitations in the amount of power obtainable. Some new way had to be discovered which would enable us to get more energy. There was enough heat-energy in the medium, but only a small part of it was available for the operation of an engine in the ways then known. Besides, the energy was obtainable only at a very slow rate. Clearly, then, the problem was to discover some new method which would make it possible both to utilize more of the heat-energy of the medium and also to draw it away from the same at a more rapid rate.

I was vainly endeavoring to form an idea of how this might be accomplished, when I read some statements from Carnot and Lord Kelvin (then Sir William Thomson) which meant virtually that it is impossible for an inanimate mechanism or self-acting machine to cool a portion of the medium below the temperature of the surrounding, and operate by the heat abstracted. These statements interested me intensely. Evidently a living being could do this very thing, and since the experiences of my early life which I have related had convinced me that a living being is only an automaton, or, otherwise stated, a "self-acting-engine," I came to the conclusion that it was possible to construct a machine which would do the same. As the first step toward this realization I conceived the following mechanism. Imagine a thermopile consisting of a number of bars of metal extending from the earth to the outer space beyond the atmosphere. The heat from below, conducted upward along these metal bars, would cool the earth or the sea or the air, according to the location of the lower parts of the bars, and the result, as is well known, would be an electric current circulating in these bars. The two terminals of the thermopile could now be joined through an electric motor, and, theoretically, this motor would run on and on, until the media below would be cooled down to the temperature of the outer space. This would be an inanimate engine which, to all evidence, would be cooling a portion of the medium below the temperature of the surrounding, and operating by the heat abstracted.

DIAGRAM b. OBTAINING ENERGY FROM THE AMBIENT MEDIUM
A, medium with little energy; B, B, ambient medium with much energy; O, path of the energy.

But was it not possible to realize a similar condition without necessarily going to a height? Conceive, for the sake of illustration, [a cylindrical] enclosure T, as illustrated in diagram b, such that energy could not be transferred across it except through a channel or path O, and that, by some means or other, in this enclosure a medium were maintained which would have little energy, and that on the outer side of the same there would be the ordinary ambient medium with much energy. Under these assumptions the energy would flow through the path O, as indicated by the arrow, and might then be converted on its passage into some other form of energy. The question was, Could such a condition be attained? Could we produce artificially such a "sink" for the energy of the ambient medium to flow in? Suppose that an extremely low temperature could be maintained by some process in a given space; the surrounding medium would then be compelled to give off heat, which could be converted into mechanical or other form of energy, and utilized. By realizing such a plan, we should be enabled to get at any point of the globe a continuous supply of energy, day and night. More than this, reasoning in the abstract, it would seem possible to cause a quick circulation of the medium, and thus draw the energy at a very rapid rate.

Here, then, was an idea which, if realizable, afforded a happy solution of the problem of getting energy from the medium. But was it realizable? I convinced myself that it was so in a number of ways, of which one is the following. As regards heat, we are at a high level, which may be represented by the surface of a mountain lake considerably above the sea, the level of which may mark the absolute zero of temperature existing in the interstellar space. Heat, like water, flows from high to low level, and, consequently, just as we can let the water of the lake run down to the sea, so we are able to let heat from the earth's surface travel up into the cold region above. Heat, like water, can perform work in flowing down, and if we had any doubt as to whether we could derive energy from the medium by means of a thermopile, as before described, it would be dispelled by this analogue. But can we produce cold in a given portion of the space and cause the heat to flow in continually? To create such a "sink," or "cold hole," as we might say, in the medium, would be equivalent to producing in the lake a space either empty or filled with something much lighter than water. This we could do by placing in the lake a tank, and pumping all the water out of the latter. We know, then, that the water, if allowed to flow back into the tank, would, theoretically, be able to perform exactly the same amount of work which was used in pumping it out, but not a bit more. Consequently nothing could be gained in this double operation of first raising the water and then letting it fall down. This would mean that it is impossible to create such a sink in the medium. But let us reflect a moment. Heat, though following certain general laws of mechanics, like a fluid, is not such; it is energy which may be converted into other forms of energy as it passes from a high to a low level. To make our mechanical analogy complete and true, we must, therefore, assume that the water, in its passage into the tank, is converted into something else, which may be taken out of it without using any, or by using very little, power. For example, if heat be represented in this analogue by the water of the lake, the oxygen and hydrogen composing the water may illustrate other forms of energy into which the heat is transformed in passing from hot to cold. If the process of heat transformation were absolutely perfect, no heat at all would arrive at the low level, since all of it would be converted into other forms of energy. Corresponding to this ideal case, all the water flowing into the tank would be decomposed into oxygen and hydrogen before reaching the bottom, and the result would be that water would continually flow in, and yet the tank would remain entirely empty, the gases formed escaping. We would thus produce, by expending initially a certain amount of work to create a sink for the heat or, respectively, the water to flow in, a condition enabling us to get any amount of energy without further effort. This would be an ideal way of obtaining motive power. We do not know of any such absolutely perfect process of heat-conversion, and consequently some heat will generally reach the low level, which means to say, in our mechanical analogue, that some water will arrive at the bottom of the tank, and a gradual and slow filling of the latter will take place, necessitating continuous pumping out. But evidently there will be less to pump out than flows in, or, in other words, less energy will be needed to maintain the initial condition than is developed by the fall, and this is to say that some energy will be gained from the medium. What is not converted in flowing down can just be raised up with its own energy, and what is converted is clear gain. Thus the virtue of the principle I have discovered resides wholly in the conversion of the energy on the downward flow.

I'm only implying that Tesla was unique in regard to how he received his inventions, through visions that would flash through his mind. He didn't even understand it. If you take into account (with a grain of salt) that he came back after his death through EVP, which he worked on towards the end of his life, and claimed he was an 'alien' from another planet who came to earth to help assist in freeing manking, it's easy to see why he was perhaps special.

I have faith it will be released eventually. They are milking the old tech for all it's worth first though. I also believe humans have the potential to receive visions like this, it's just part of the knowledge of old. The connection is lost.

He certainly was unique to say the least, as you said he had an uncanny ability to visualize things in his mind and come up with working designs for devices before he even started building something. I have read some of that stuff which is claimed to have been written by Tesla, that he was from Venus but I really don't know what to think about it, and I'll leave it at just that. I think there is enough information out there to reproduce his work accurately, plus I will say it again, he worked with what is there, nature. It is only a matter of working hard at it and doing your own experimentation, unfortunately money is tight and this is easier said then done.

Re: The call to release Nikola Tesla's Research-Jan. 7th 2012
Very, very cool reseazrch paper done on how Tesla 'thought' of things. How he visualized them almost as if in visions.


Abstract
– Nikola Tesla is undoubtedly the greatest inventor in the history of electrical engineering, and what makes him
especially fascinating was his unusual mental control of creative visions which might serve as an extraordinary case study for understanding the very biophysical nature of creativity. In this regard, quantum bases of consciousness and creativity are considered in the framework of two cognitive modes of consciousness (direct religious-creative one, characteristic of quatnum-coherent transitional and altered states of individual consciousness, and indirect sensory/rationally mediated one, characteristic of classically-reduced normal states of individual consciousness) - together with conditions of transforming one mode into another - using theoretical methods of associative neural networks and quantum neural holography combined with quantum decoherence theory. It seems that such theoretical analysis offers extraordinary biophysical basis for raditional/transpersonal psychology of transitional and altered states of consciousness, and enables understanding and control of cognitive-creative processes, both in waking and sleep states. It was also pointed out that secret of Tesla’s creativity is presumably related to the waking meditative control of transitional and altered states of consciousness.

Here is another good article Tesla wrote entitled "The True Wireless"(Electrical Experimenter, May 1919). I think from these articles written by Tesla we can see that he is saying that electro-magnetic waves induced in the ether seem to be analogous to waves propagating in fluids. Specifically being analogous to sound waves propagating through a dielectric medium, which can be propagated either Transversely or Longitudinally(much like sound waves propagating in air). If the ether is real, then Tesla's Wireless Transmission is possible. The Lorentz Transform destroys the ether in Maxwell's equations, so that is where the problem lays in modern day relativistic science.

[link to www.tfcbooks.com]

Tesla was pretty clear about his thoughts on Special Relativity as he once said, "The theory is like a beggar clothed in purple whom ignorant people take for a king. Its exponents are very brilliant men, but they are metaphysicists rather than scientists."

Re: The call to release Nikola Tesla's Research-Jan. 7th 2012
I was reading this article yesterday night, I thought it was a good summation of how the ether relates to "matter". Enjoy



THE ETERNAL SOURCE OF ENERGY OF THE UNIVERSE,
ORIGIN AND INTENSITY OF COSMIC RAYS *

by Nikola Tesla


October 13, 1932, New York

A little over one century ago many astronomers, including Laplace still thought that the system of heavenly bodies was unalterable and that they would perform their motions in the same manner through an eternity. But the gradual perfection of instruments and refinement of methods of investigation, achieved since that time, has led to the recognition that there is a continuous change going on in the celestial regions subjecting all bodies to ever varying influence. Where this change is leading to, and what is to be its final phase, have become questions of supreme scientific interest. In a communication to the Royal Society of Edinburgh dated April 19, 1852 and the Philosophical Magazine of October of the same year, Lord Kelvin drew attention to the general tendency in nature towards dissipation of mechanical energy, a fact borne out in daily observation of thermo-dynamic and dynamo-thermic processes and one of ominous significance. It meant that the driving force of the universe was steadily decreasing and that ultimately all of its motive energy will be exhausted none remaining available for mechanical work. In the macro-cosmos, with its countless conception, this process might require billion of years for its consummation; but in the infinitesimal worlds of the micro-cosmos it must have been quickly completed. Such being the case then, according to an experimental findings and deductions of positive science, any material substance (cooled down to the absolute zero of temperature) should be devoid of an internal movement and energy, so to speak, dead.

This idea of the great philosopher, who later honored me with his friendship, had a fascinating effect on my mind and in meditating over it I was struck by the thought that if there is energy within the substance it can only come from without. This truth was so manifest to me that I expressed it in the following axiom: "There is no energy in matter except that absorbed from the medium." Lord Kelvin gave us a picture of a dying universe, of a clockwork wound up and running down, inevitably doomed to come to a full stop in the far, far off future. It was a gloomy view incompatible with artistic, scientific and mechanical sense. I asked myself again and again, was there not some force winding up the clock as it runs down? The axiom I had formulated gave me a clue. If all energy is supplied to matter from without then this all important function must be performed by the medium. Yes--but how?

I pondered over this oldest and greatest of all riddles of physical science a long time in vain, despairingly remind of the words of the poet:

Wo fass ich dich unendliche Natür?
Euch Bruste wo Ihr Quellen alles Lebens
An denen Himmel und Erdë hangt. . .

Where, boundless nature, can I hold you fast?
And where you breasts? Wells that sustain
All life--the heaven and the earth are nursed.
Goethe. Faust

What I strove for seemed unattainable, but a kind fate favored me and a few inspired experiments lifted the veil. It was a revelation wonderful and incredible explaining many mysteries of nature and disclosing as in a lightening flash the illusionary character of some modem theories incidentally also bearing out the universal truth of the above axiom.

When radio-active rays were discovered their investigators believed them to be due to liberation of atomic energy in the form of waves. This being impossible in the light of the preceding I concluded that they were produced by some external disturbance and composed of electrified particles. My theory was not seriously taken although it appeared simple and plausible. Suppose that bullets are fired against a wall. Where a missile strikes the material is crushed and spatters in all directions radial from the place of impact In this example it is perfectly clear that the energy of the flying pieces can only be derived from that of the bullets. But in manifestation of radio-activity no such proof could be advanced and it was, therefore, of the first importance to demonstrate experimentally the existence of this miraculous disturbance in the medium. I was rewarded in these efforts with quick success largely because of the efficient method I adopted which consisted in deriving from a great mass of air, ionized by the disturbance, a current, storing its energy in a condenser and discharging the same through an indicating device. This plan did away with the limitations and incertitude of the electroscope first employed and was described by me in articles and patents from 1900 to 1905. It was logical to expect, judging from the behavior of known radiations, that the chief source of the new rays would be the sun, but this supposition was contradicted by observations and theoretical considerations which disclosed some surprising facts in this connection.

Light and heat rays are absorbed in their passage through a medium in a certain proportion to its density. The ether, although the most tenuous of all substances, is no exception to this rule. Its density has been first estimated by Lord Kelvin and conformably to his finding a column of one square centimeter cross section and of a length such that light, traveling at a rate of three hundred thousands kilometers per second, would require one year to traverse it, should weigh 4.8 grams. This is just about the weigh of a prism of ordinary glass of the same cross section and two centimeters length which, therefore, may be assumed as the equivalent of the ether column in absorption. A column of the ether one thousand times longer would thus absorb as much light as twenty meters of glass. However, there are suns at distances of many thousands of light years and it is evident that virtually no light from them can reach the earth. But if these suns emit rays immensely more penetrative than those of light they will be slightly dimmed and so the aggregate amount of radiations pouring upon the earth from all sides will be overwhelmingly greater than that supplied to it by our luminary. If light and heat rays would be as penetrative as the cosmic, so fierce would be the perpetual glare and so scorching the heat that life on this and other planets could not exist.

Rays in every respect similar to the cosmic are produced by my vacuum tubes when operated at pressures of ten millions of volts or more, but even if it were not confirmed by experiment, the theory I advanced in 1897 would afford the simplest and most probable explanation of the phenomena. Is not the universe with its infinite and impenetrable boundary a perfect vacuum tube of dimensions and power inconceivable? Are not its fiery suns electrodes at temperatures far beyond any we can apply in the puny and crude contrivances of our making? Is it not a fact that the suns and stars are under immense electrical pressures transcending any that man can ever produce and is this not equally true of the vacuum in celestial space? Finally, can there be any doubt that cosmic dust and meteoric matter present an infinitude of targets acting as reflectors and transformers of energy? If under ideal working conditions, and with apparatus on a scale beyond the grasp of the human mind, rays of surpassing intensity and penetrative power would not be generated, then, indeed, nature has made an unique exception to its laws.

It has been suggested that the cosmic rays are electrons or that they are the result of creation of new matter in the interstellar deserts. These views are too fantastic to be even for a moment seriously considered. They are natural outcroppings of this age of deep but unrational thinking, of impossible theories, the latest of which might, perhaps, deal with the curvature of time. What this world of ours would be if time were curved:

As there exists considerable doubt in regard to the manner in which the intensity of the cosmic rays varies with altitude the following simple formula derived from my early experimental data may be welcome to those who are interested in the subject.

I = (W+P) / (W+p)

In this expression W is the weight in kilograms of a column of lead of one square centimeter cross section and one hundred and eighty centimeters length, P the normal pressure of the atmosphere at sea level in kilograms per square centimeter, p the atmospheric pressure at the altitude under consideration and in like measure and I the intensity of the radiation in terms of that at sea level which is taken as unit. Substituting the actual values for W and P, respectively 1.9809 and 1.0133 kilograms, the formula reduces to

I = 2.99421 / (1.9809 + p)

Obviously, at sea level p = P hence the intensity is equal to 1, this being the unit of measurement. On the other hand, at the extreme limit of the atmosphere p = 0 and the intensity I = 1.5115.

The maximum increase with height is, consequently, a little over fifty-one percent. This formula, based on my finding that the absorption is proportionate to the density of the medium whatever it be, is fairly accurate. Other investigators might find different values for W but they will undoubtedly observe the same character of dependence, namely, that the intensity increases proportionately to the height for a few kilometers and then at a gradually lessening rate.

Re: The call to release Nikola Tesla's Research-Jan. 7th 2012
dozens of people, to whom i tried to speak about Tesla want to know nothing at all about him and his discoveries, being to busy with their pathetic daily crap. They do not give a flying fuck about the fact that all their 'modern' toys, and comfy electrified life is due to the achievements of a single man. and so on and so forth...

Tesla technology is almost 100 years old.

If Tesla had discovered something unique then it would have been re-discovered by now.

Sorry to say, but Tesla was little more than a showman. The high voltage displays are fascinating, however they can be fully explained and duplicated.

AC electricity has been explored and harnessed beyond anything Tesla had imagined.

Of course there is the possibility of new applications ... but this would have been outside the realm of Tesla because he never had access to the instruments we use today.

Tesla technology is a red herring. look elsewhere for answers.

This is what most people think unfortunately, at least to the layman, and it is laughable. What Tesla developed after AC Transmission was wireless transmission of electrical energy, which was eventually ripped off by Marconi and finally turned into the Transverse Electromagnetic Waves we utilize today. Tesla's wireless transmission was utilizing Longitudinal Waves being transmitted through the earth. Let's see what Tesla had to say about Transverse Waves, "The assumption of the Maxwellian ether was thought necessary to explain the propagation of light by transverse vibrations, which can only occur in a solid. So fascinating was this theory that even at present it has many supporters, despite the manifest impossibility of a medium, perfectly mobile and tenuous to a degree inconceivable, and yet extremely rigid, like steel. As a result some illusionary ideas have been formed and various phenomena erroneously interpreted. The so—called Hertz waves are still considered a reality proving that light is electrical in its nature, and also that the ether is capable of transmitting transverse vibrations of frequencies however low. This view has become untenable since I showed that the universal medium is a gaseous body in which only longitudinal pulses can be prop­agated, involving alternating compressions and expansions similar to those produced by sound waves in the air. Thus, a wireless transmitter does not emit Hertz waves which are a myth, but sound waves in the ether, behaving in every respect like those in the air, except that, owing to the great elastic force and extremely small densi­ty of the medium, their speed is that of light."
