Just for the record, Nikola Tesla never invented nor patented any "free energy" devices. His ultimate objective was to create WIRELESS
energy distribution, such that a central electric generator could produce a constant high-energy electrostatic field over a broad area, remotely
powering electric motors and devices.
Tesla actually employed such technology in his own labs, and he dreamed of remotely powering and controlling whole armies and navies with such
technology. Ultimately, his wireless energy would be used to power entire nations, he thought.
What Tesla didn't consider, I think, is that generating these gigantic artificial electrostatic fields could have disastrous effects on human and
animal life. We know today, for example, that intense electrostatic fields can screw up mental stability, biologic reproduction, cell growth, and it
may even cause cancer.
I mean, they warn people today about living in the vicinity of high-power electrical lines — property values have plummeted in such areas.
Now, imagine Tesla's utopia, the very air charged with high-power electrostatic energy NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVED. It would be an inescapable
Don't get me wrong, I consider Nikola Tesla the greatest inventor and scientific genius of all time — he was light years beyond Thomas
Edison and the other celebrated inventors of his day, and his practical applications have yet to be surpassed. Tesla was
patenting modern computer technology while Edison was still playing with hand-cranked phonographs, and Tesla was atomizing the hardest elements known
while Albert Einstein was still pondering the mechanics of E=mc2.
In other words, Tesla was taking gigantic leaps from concept to reality while everyone else was taking baby steps.
Still, Tesla's own brilliance blinded him to many elemental blunders. For example, he was experimenting with high-energy X-rays before anyone even
knew what X-rays were, and he was not protecting himself against the harsh radiation. This may have contributed to his dementia in later
Just so, his enthusiasm for wireless energy overlooked the potential for widespread hazard to the environment. We may, in fact, be
better off with these electrical wires delivering our energy — at least we can get away from them at will. In Tesla's utopia, there
would be no escape.
