He refused the depths of reasoning, underlining an importance of gaining clarity, what I found applicable in my personal research. Nikola Tesla dared to be his own, very original personality in all spheres of his life.

  • Dave, it really would be great to have the opportunity to talk to him :). If you ever come to Belgrade, you'd enjoy spending many hours in Tesla's museum. And his birth place is around 365 miles (590 km) - 5 hours by car far from Belgrade. This region (Lika) is well known for ineffable natural beauty, best lamb on the spit in region, and very special smoked goat cheese. In general, Craotia hates all what is related to Serbs, but when it comes to be proud of something, Croatia is proud of Tesla :)). (And Serbia is not more deserved to be proud of Tesla. Both countries hate and do nothing for their best people. Weird weird folks.) Wow, Seems I do not know how to stop writing. Dave, thanks for taking your time to visit, read, and comment. Sending much love and blessings your way.

  • How incredibly interesting is this man and his life! I am familiar with some of his work, as his inventions created some of the machinery I worked with over the years. I would very much have enjoyed the opportunity to sit with this man and hear first hand of his discoveries.

Genius With Tendency to Clarity Nikola Tesla

  1. 1. Why Tesla Is a Scientific God Before the turn of the 20th century, electricity remained a mere scientific curiosity -- one that many doubted would ever do an honest day's work. Nikola Tesla, arguably more than anyone else, changed that, but his pioneering research in electricity represents only a portion of the scientific and technical innovations that elevated him to science godhood.
  2. 2. During his lifetime, Tesla invented fluorescent lighting, the Tesla induction motor, the Tesla coil, and developed the alternating current (AC) electrical supply system that included a motor and transformer, and 3-phase electricity. Tesla is now credited with inventing modern radio as well; since the Supreme Court overturned Guglielmo Marconi's patent in 1943 in favor of Nikola Tesla's earlier patents. When an engineer (Otis Pond) once said to Tesla, "Looks as if Marconi got the jump on you" regarding Marconi's radio system, Tesla replied, "Marconi is a good fellow. Let him continue. He is using seventeen of my patents." The Tesla coil, invented in 1891, is still used in radio and television sets and other electronic equipment.
  3. 3. Century Illustrated Magazine, June 1900 THE ONWARD MOVEMENT OF MAN—THE ENERGY OF THE MOVEMENT—THE THREE WAYS OF INCREASING HUMAN ENERGY Modern science says: The sun is the past, the earth is the present, the moon is the future. From an incandescent mass we have originated, and into a frozen mass we shall turn. Merciless is the law of nature, and rapidly and irresistibly we are drawn to our doom. Lord Kelvin, in his profound meditations, allows us only a short span of life, something like six million years, after which time the suns bright light will have ceased to shine, and its life giving heat will have ebbed away, and our own earth will be a lump of ice, hurrying on through the eternal night. But do not let us despair. There will still be left upon it a glimmering spark of life, and there will be a chance to kindle a new fire on some distant star.... continue read here by Nikola Tesla
  4. 4. Nikola Tesla was the turn-of-the-century genius who fathered alternating current technologies, radar, fluorescent tubes, and bladeless turbines. Tesla also presented the first viable arguments for robots, rockets, and particle beams. If society had followed up on the inventions Nikola Tesla envisioned at the turn of the century as he rode in a carriage near what is now this hotel, said Trombly, we wouldn't have a fossil-fuel economy today.... Today could be found a vast of conspiracy theories which use or abuse Tesla’s genius. To me personally, he is one of most respected Teachers and inspirators, a countryman with similar destiny of being born under the wings of the stepmother, and thrown out of the nest with no bigger guilt than being a step son.
  5. 5. Tesla, when was 23 years old Tesla, close to death Tesla never married, claiming that his chastity was very helpful to his scientific abilities. He had no hobby, cared for no sort of amusement of any kind and lived in utter disregard of the most elementary rules of hygiene… Orthodox Christmas morning (January 7th) 1943 has not found Nikola Tesla alive. He passed away in New Yorker Hotel, New York City, USA.
  6. 6. Nikola Tesla's family, Nikola is on left side, sitting alone
  7. 7. Year 2013 is 70 years of Nikola Tesla’s passing away. In honor of this great man, today I also created the forum topic on AdlandPro. Please, visit and contribute. Feel free to post anything that you find relevant to the topic.

  10. 10. ● When the great truth accidentally revealed and experimentally confirmed is fully recognized, that this planet, with all its appalling immensity, is to electric currents virtually no more than a small metal ball and that by this fact many possibilities, each baffling imagination and of incalculable consequence, are rendered absolutely sure of accomplishment; when the first plant is inaugurated and it is shown that a telegraphic message, almost as secret and non-interferable as a thought, can be transmitted to any terrestrial distance, the sound of the human voice, with all its intonations and inflections, faithfully and instantly reproduced at any other point of the globe, the energy of a waterfall made available for supplying light, heat or motive power, anywhere — on sea, or land, or high in the air — humanity will be like an ant heap stirred up with a stick: See the excitement coming! ("The Transmission of Electric Energy Without Wires" in Electrical World and Engineer (5 March 1904) )
  11. 11. Tesla’s proposed arrangement of ballon station for transmitting electricity without wires Tesla Holding in his hands balls of flame.
  12. 12. … It wasn't until age twenty-four, when Tesla was living in Budapest and working for the Central Telephone Exchange, that the answer came to him: “One afternoon, which is ever present in my recollection, I was enjoying a walk with my friend in the city park and reciting poetry. At that age I knew entire books by heart, word for word. One of these was Goethe'sFaust. The sun was just setting and reminded me of a glorious passage: The glow retreats, done is the day of toil; It yonder hastes, new fields of life exploring; Ah, that no wing can lift me from the soil Upon its track to follow, follow soaring! As I uttered these inspiring words the idea came like a flash of lightning and in an instant the truth was revealed. I drew with a stick on the sand the diagram shown six years later in my address before the American Institute of Electrical Engineers. This was the invention of the induction motor, a technological advance that would soon change the world….
  13. 13. Roughly 4,290 miles from New York City, USA, and 75 miles from my birth place :), a boy named Nikola Tesla was born. Nikola Tesla was born a subject of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1856 in a mountainous area of the Balkan Peninsula known as Lika. His father Milutin, and his mother Djuka, were both Serbian by origin. Tesla's father was a stern but loving Orthodox priest, who was also a gifted writer and poet. At a young age, Tesla immersed himself in his father's library. Tesla's mother was a hard working woman of many talents who created appliances to help with home and farm responsibilities. One of these was a mechanical eggbeater. Tesla attributed all of his inventive instincts to his mother.
