Was Nikola Tesla one of the greatest geeks that has ever lived? Most probably yes!
For the beginning, here are some facts. Nikola Tesla was born in 10. July, 1856 in Croatia. He spent most of his childhood fascinated by math and engineering. At the age of 24 he invented the induction motor. Four years later he traveled to New York to interview with his hero – Thomas Edison. This meeting did not go well, but Edison still hired Nikola Tesla. After only few months Nikola Tesla resigned in disgust and left work on system of alternating current (AC). Nikola Tesla passed away alone in a hotel room in New York at the age of 87. After he died the US government confiscated his possessions. His notes were held by the office of a daily newspaper and eventually should have been shipped to Yugoslavia. Or were they?
Thousands of people believed that US government suppressed Tesla’s technology. For instance, take the story of Tesla’s oscillator – small device that can simulate earthquakes. Consider also death ray. In the interview with New York Times, Nikola Tesla stated that he had invented a giant death beam that wouldn’t work, because it was too simple for countries destroy each other. But the strangest and alleged invention was world wide free electricity system. With funding from J.P. Morgan, Nikola Tesla built a gigantic tower in New York and named it “Wardenclyffe”. J.P. Morgan hope the Wardenclyffe Tower could proved wireless communication across the world. But Nikola Tesla had another plans.
The inventor reportedly wanted to build an energy system that used Earth as conductor. If the project worked, anyone could have electricity by simply sticking a rod into the ground. Unfortunately, free electricity is not profitable and this system could be incredibly dangerous for the global elite. It is because it could profoundly change the energy industry. Imagine how different the world would be if the society didn’t need oil or coal to function. Could the current world-powers maintain control?
Many historians believe George Westinghouse and Morgan refused to fund the Wardenclyffe project because they grew tired of the great expense. But what if they banded together to blackball Tesla financially? It make sense. The mark of most great inventions is that they fundamentally changed the society in which they exist. And the people at the top of the social structure had more to gain by re reinforcing the status-quo. But Tesla’s technology didn’t necessarily disappeared.
Some theorist believe that the government continues to use Tesla’s research in places like the HAARP Facilities in Alaska. HAARP stands for High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. Officially, this program investigates ionospheric phenomena and the government claims it is purely for research. There is no way to know for sure what Tesla’s note contain and if the US government really has used Tesla’s designs but they have done a wonderful job hiding their tracks if they did.
Yet, Nikola Tesla remains an enigma. He believed in extraterrestrial, wireless energy and dozens of other things yet to be proven by mainstream science. His beliefs were ridiculed as often as they were applauded. We will never be able to know, what exactly Nikola Tesla was up to as the rumors surrounding HAARP and Area 51 grow, some people start to ask: “Are these mysteries related ? Did government really return all of Tesla’s notes. Or did these notes contain something that they don’t want us to know?
