As Tesla was a genius, many people take his words for granted. He had many insights into the past and the present, and we have no doubt that he also had a very accurate vision of the future. It is frighteningly accurate how the genius had already seen perfectly well where the world was going. He had many insights into the past and the present, and he had an extremely accurate vision of the future. Certainly, he knew that his discoveries would be ahead of their time, as was often the case with innovators throughout history. Tesla’s thoughts on how he thinks about the future were originally published in Liberty magazine but it was later summarized (including how he saw the coming disasters) by the Smithsonian Magazin. What is really frightening is that many of the ideas that he outlined are already taking shape today and some are still unfulfilled.
Tesla and his predictions
His prediction was that the importance of education would be recognised by the government and people would start to care a lot about their bodies and their health. A completely different culture will emerge, where bickering, political and conflicting interests will actually become secondary and closer cooperation will emerge, but it will only come in the 21st century or at the end of the 21st century when people will be ready. Tesla himself avoided eating meat and he was convinced that within a century coffee, tea and smoking would be out of fashion. He believed, however, that alcohol, would still be used. He also predicted that many crafts would be replaced or completely eliminated by robots created by technology, and this would be the point that would free humanity to strive for higher goals, which would further stimulate our development. Tesla believed that the 21st century would bring us great changes. He said that in our day, many nations would spend money and waste resources on military technology and weaponry. No wonder, since Tesla was always against armaments. He envisioned a world, but in the distant future, where new scientific discoveries, not war, would become mankind’s priority. He also mentioned that we would be able to manage the climate and we would use it in a smart and purposeful way so that we could reverse and fix the disasters of the world. He predicted that within 100 years the US Environmental Protection Agency would be established, which 35 years after his prediction finally did happen. As time goes on, science and progress will become more important, and that will be helped by the fact that humanity will see how drastically our planet is being destroyed.
Tesla and the pyramids
One of his interests was the Pyramids of Giza, which he found fascinating. He thought that these buildings had been huge transmitters of energy and found a connection between them and his inventions. The scientist’s work is connected to the discovery of alternate current and experimenting with the transmission of electricity through the air. Not only were these results linked to him: he had several other discoveries and experiments too. In 1905, he released his work, entitled ‘The art of transmitting energy through the natural medium?’ which suggested that the Earth is a large generator which could produce electricity by harnessing it. He speculated that the Earth was a large generator which produced electricity and that the pyramids at Giza were somehow involved in this process. The secrets of the pyramids, he thought, lay in their shape and geometrical relationships.
Tesla and his experiments
In Colorado Springs and Long Island, Tesla conducted experiments in wireless power transmission. His ultimate goal was to build Wardenclyffe Tower, a giant metal pyramid that rose some 195 feet high above the earth. Built from the ground up, its foundations contained a steel shaft and boilerplate. His dream was to power homes and factories with electric current transmitted as electromagnetic waves from Wardenclyffe Tower without wires. Today, most people think that wireless power transmission could never have worked, but there are others who claim that the pyramids were indeed, transmitters of power. He had another obsession with numbers, especially with 3, 6 and 9. Before entering a building, he always drove around it 3 times and he only stayed in hotel rooms with numbers which can be divided by 3. His daily decisions were also based on these numbers. Today, most people think that wireless power transmission could never have worked but there are others who claim that the pyramids were indeed, transmitters of power.
Tesla and aliens
Some people believe that Nikola Tesla used his inventions to prove that there are other dimensions and that he was in communication with aliens who were of higher intelligence. Others think he was in contact with extraterrestrial beings (or he was abducted), and that he received his knowledge of electricity from them. In other words, he did use their technology to create his inventions. Some believe that he could travel through and manipulate the electromagnetic field of the Earth, the ether of space, gravity, and even time by tapping into an alternate reality that existed beyond this one and he used his knowledge to prove there were other dimensions; others that he just borrowed technology from these beings and applied it to his inventions.
Tesla and the spiritual
According to another theory, Tesla was a medium and he used his knowledge of electricity and the natural world to communicate with the spirits of the dead. It is indeed possible that he had been trapped in a state of living death so they may have reached out to him to reveal the mysteries of the universe. The forces that govern the natural world allowed him to leave his body at night and travel the other realms. Perhaps it was in this manner that he discovered how to build the amazing devices that would revolutionize our world.
