Yes, the word relativity exists for a long time. But here, "Tesla" clrearly uses the word "relativity" in a context of spacetime deformation:

Tesla: Remember, it is not curved space, but the human mind which cannot comprehend infinity and eternity! If relativity has been clearly understood by its Creator, he would gain immortality, even yet physically, if he is pleased.

Curved space is a feature of Einstein's relativity, and time dilation (and by extension relative immortality through the twin paradox) also is a feature of Einsteinian relativity. Both were formulated in 1905, some 6 years in the future of the purported "interview".

Anachronism no matter how you cut it.

It's pretty clear that this interview is a work of fiction. DelMarvel found the source pretty quickly. Here's the IMDB link for the TV adaptation of Tesla ili prilagodjavanje andjela. It's like posting part of the dialog from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as historical evidence of a vampire conspiracy to hide the true history of Honest Abe's monster hunting exploits.

Unfortunately the real lesson here will be completely lost on the legions of people who are willing to believe, without question, anything purporting to be forbidden knowledge or history suppressed by the mainstream, particularly anything about Tesla.

After all, Tesla has come to be the archetype for all wannabe maverick scientists whose miraculous inventions could fix all of the world's problems if only the mainstream scientific community would stop persecuting them.

Here's a fake Tesla interview. Send me $299.99 for detailed plans for my new device that will have your car running on mouse farts! 10,000 miles on a bag of feed pellets! The revolutionary energy source they don't want you to know about!

Ok if this is a fake interview, but why some people denied even in 2015 that Tesla was 100 years in front of the time or by reading this topic i would think another 100 years will need to pass.

I watched many documentaries about Tesla and all i have saw is a scientists that like to make working things. And recently i watch a crazy documentary that was like watching Science Fiction movie. It was about Tesla Death Ray, Free Energy for all and so on.

So, please if you don't have better tings to do, go out walk a dog, don't bash a scientist that at least wanted to help humanity if nothing else. There are many fake things around, but it is not Tesla fault that some people are making things up, that some people are building luxury cars under his name and so on.

This interview is a hoax. This is very similar to the purple plates guy. He completely made up a quote from Tesla to sell his magical vibrating magnetic purple plates.

Hah, thank you. I was about to say it was the commonly held belief until the mid 20th century that our galaxy was the entirety of the universe. It started gaining ground in the 20's and didn't get back off the ground until the WWII era.

Or there is no truth in the words and it is new age fiction catering to a certain crowd who idolizes Tesla.

If you think people are bashing Tesla here you don't understand the thread. People are calling a hoax a hoax. That is all. Tesla was a great man and contributed greatly to society. If he was as shrewd a businessman as he was a scientist (like Edison) he would have been more widely appreciated in his own time.

So shouldn't this be moved to the Hoax forum to stop wasting peoples time?

This didn't start out as a deliberate hoax.

It's from a play by a Serbian named Stevan Pešić called "Tesla, the Accommodation of Angels" (Tesla ili prilagođavanje Anđela) which has been adapted at least twice for film and television. Pešić who died in 1994 was also a poet and the dialogue here seems to be in a very similar "voice" to what I've seen translated from his poetry. There are reports online that according to the Tesla Museum in Belgrade there is no record of this interview ever occurring.

One additional giveaway is that the interview was supposedly done by a man named "John Smith" in the U.S. and was published in an English language magazine yet all we have what is admittedly a translation (and what looks like a poor one) from Pešić's play. Where is the original English version?

I think a lot of people are probably reposting this in good faith but it's still just a work of creative fiction.

relativity is not an invention of Einstein.

No, but as swanne correctly pointed out, the idea of curved space associated with relativity came from Einstein six years AFTERE this alleged interview.

Also, as I mentioned, the use of the term "black holes" to describe gravitational singularities came in the 1960s, 65+ years after this alleged interview, and the idea that there are separate star-filled galaxies outside the Milky Way was also something that was not a commonly-held belief until the 1920s. It may be true that some people thought there may be other galaxies such as the Milky Way, but the term commonly used to describe these things before the 1920s was "nebula". In this alleged interview, Tesla calls them "galaxies".

There are several anachronisms in this 'interview' that makes it seem that it is almost certainly not a real interview.

This is exactly the kind of crap we have to deal with.

The star and flag system is designed to cull the bad from the good. --You just admitted to staring & flagging this thread, even though it is complete fictional rubbish -- JUST because it mentions, "Tesla".

Pathetic. Try reading the thread and/or making a decision based on facts. Don't just lap up crap like this because TESLA! and maybe - JUST MAYBE we WON'T have this rubbish rising to the top.

Mods remove this post for being rude or whatever you have to do, but I'm disgusted.

No wonder the juicy stuff gets buried or no attention.. people love fantastic over real!

I'm ashamed how much bandwagon is on this site.

Whose source is correct?

Well even your source says it was only based on a real interview, and when something is based on something else you never really know how legit the info is.

Yes true but that would verify that the interview actually happened.

It was his mental disorders that made him so eccentric and attractive to gullible people. That's where a lot of his funding was sourced.

It's too bad his "mad scientist" thing hadn't been more productive. There're only a handful of 'inventions' which're in anyway worth remembering. I hesitate to even use the word "invention" because he just used others work and oftne took credit for things he did not deserve.

It's sad he died a depressed and broken man. It makes all that he DID accomplish capped by repeated tragedy. As a story, it's wanting.

But they knew a lot in 1899 and before, even though this interview is fake. History is not respected. People conceived of many of the things which later came to be. Whether it's robots or comptuers or the internet, it all existed already in sound deduction and in the imagination. YOu would not know this only seeing the dumb drawings created back then of people flying around with wings and inside bulletships in popular futurist media. You only need to dig deeper than that to discover it didn't end there.

Here're a few examples of the "hidden" history: - Pascal's calculator... - Arithmometer... - Analytical Engine... - Comptometer... - Jaquet-Droz automata... - al-Jazari... - Hierapolis sawmill... - Barbegal aqueduct and mill... - Heron's fountain... - Aeolipile... - A programmable robot from 60 AD...

These're not anything spectatular, but many are unaware of them. Some people think the conception of the modern computer didn't exist until the 1940's. Some people think the internet didn't exist in the mind until the 1990's, even though people were speculating about it long ago.

So much which is in our imagination goes unnoticed even as some of the things we know today were imagined 3000 years ago.

And then there're those speculations of Earth's around other stars, long before that was a proven fact. An example is below: - Giordano Bruno...

....He is celebrated for his cosmological theories, which went even further than the then-novel Copernican model. He proposed that the stars were just distant suns surrounded by their own exoplanets and raised the possibility that these planets could even foster life of their own (a philosophical position known as cosmic pluralism).....

Mind you, I'm not so stupid to think he was the only one in his time which entertained those ideas in his imagination. Wiki might be able to classify a few of them, but my expectation is there were many magnitudes more like them which permitted these thoughts to exist in their minds. We always focus on the people who're recorded, but we miss the others.

For all trying to show this is a Hoax please post the reasons. The major one I have seen so far on the Theory of Relativity coming out in 1905 , I have already explained that . Einstein spent the last 10 years adding acceleration to his equations. He had been working on his Theory for at least 15 years.
as far as mentioning black holes , again there was a theoretical equation put forth in 1783 that theorized about massive gravity wells.
And yes , Darwin's theory of evolution was published in 1859 , not 1899
anything else I can help you with ?
And they say that the drama was based on a real life interview.
And Tesla DID invent AC power . Ask George Westinghouse...
