Although Nikola Tesla was never able to prove his direct contact with extraterrestrials, he succeeded in bringing us all a bit closer towards realizing the powers of energy. From x-ray technology to the Tesla coil to the radio - yes, the actual radio - Tesla’s genius enabled him to understand that everything in the universe is connected via forces unseen.
Tesla died broke and alone, reviled by so-called men of science like Thomas Edison, other inventors who actually have Tesla to thank for the success of many of their innovations.
Tesla the Sci-Fi Rebel
Tesla's rebellious perspective infused all aspects of his life. The way that he communicated his findings to others may have been overbearing, due to his abundance of passion on the subjects at hand, but this may just have been his frustration with the general public’s lack of imagination towards the sciences. If this is what he meant, he was right. People knew what radio waves were before Tesla. But they did not know how to harness the energy. Before Tesla, radio waves may as well have been extraterrestrial.
For instance, when Tesla first introduced the idea of the laser, he was publicly ridiculed as if he had tried to make sense of an alien sighting. When Tesla began to use the natural frequencies of the universe around us to send data to and from different places, he might as well have been talking about an invisible spaceship. What is the difference, truthfully? Although we do not think of these things as supernatural now, they were completely out of the question before Tesla began to utilize them in a different way from anyone else.
Tesla, Energy and the Universe
When we speak of how Tesla looked at energy, we are looking at a new way of viewing the universe. The invisible is a distribution network - everything that we need in order to communicate with whatever or whomever we want is right in front of us. It is also worthy to note that with Tesla's thinking, we can communicate with a much larger swath of the universe than we initially thought.
Tesla's new way of looking at the world is reminiscent of theories espoused by Voltaire, Twain and Mach. Mach is perhaps the most directly relevant of these three - his theories that atoms did not exist were actually a large part of Einstein’s relativity theory. Like Tesla, however, Mach did not receive a great deal of credit for his work in future endeavors dealing with physics. Those familiar with these areas of study understand how essential Mach was to the truth of finding new things about our universe. This is the same space Tesla occupies in his contributions to the world of energy.
How to Think of Tesla
It almost does not matter what Tesla received from his ELF (Extremely Low Frequencies) receiver that fateful day that he thought he was communicating with extraterrestrials. What matters is the new way that Tesla began to look at the world. If these new thoughts bring new technologies, then what does the rest matter? Our universe is full of things that may seem supernatural to us today, only to be fully comprehended by future generations.
Developing a better understanding of ‘energy’ could completely change our relationship with the hidden elements of the world and the universe. Take the contemporary Tesla company today as an example - Elon Musk’s work to develop a better energy storage system may one day allow energy providers to better harness the capabilities of solar and wind power, helping us decrease our reliance on fossil fuels. This would change everything for all Earth dwellers, changing the way that we use, pay for and purchase our electricity in today’s era of climate change.
Follow Tesla’s lead and do not close your mind to any thoughts or experiences that you may find yourself in contact with. There’s no telling what you may find.
