For the word picky debunkers I say KINDA because of the (after this) obvious conflicts.

If light can directly influence matter than what's to say all matter doesn't receive energy from the environment? netowne.com...

The ability of light to affect the chemistry of molecules is nothing new. That's how film photography works and that what is going on here. The bending is not a direct effect of light but a secondary effect of the photooxidation of the molecules composing the strands. Light is not bending matter, electrostatic repulsion is.


Twisting of the ribbons with an equal distribution of left and right helices was induced by illumination with visible light. The pitch lengths (250 to 1500 nanometers) varied with illumination dose, and the twisting was associated with the relief of mechanical shear stress in assembled ribbons caused by photooxidation of CdS. Unusual shapes of multiparticle assemblies, such as ellipsoidal clouds, dog-bone agglomerates, and ribbon bunches, were observed as intermediate stages. Computer simulations revealed that the balance between attraction and electrostatic repulsion determines the resulting geometry and dimensionality of the nanoparticle assemblies.

I'm not clear on the connection with Tesla.

If light was taken out of the experiment, then how did the electrostatic repulsion occur?

And the connection was merely speculation that if light can bend matter no matter how weak, or by whatever causes that matter can get it's energy from it's environment, but that actually doesn't matter now cause I found a thread on ATS about it

Isn't light affecting the chemistry of molecules the same as kirlian photography?



I'm not sure on the Tesla connection either.

The biggest problem with Tesla was that making his magical machinery work required Vesuvian levels of sustained, clean voltages. And, unfortunately, raw electricity is dirty. It spills out all kinds of chaotic and twisting magnetic fields that might not have mattered in the late 1800's when he did is work and few people even had electric lights, but these days would create power grid havoc pretty much everywhere. Just ask anybody who lives next to a high-energy radio tower, or a high tension power line.

So, as it turns out, Tesla's ideas were beaten out by the researchers working with good ol' light, which is much cleaner and more efficient than Tesla's messy electricity for a number of important applications. Of course, we still transmit big power with three-phase electricity, but it has a lot more to do with habit and difficulties changing existing infrastructure than it being the "best" way to do things.

In the end, Tesla was a teller of tall tales, who made a few bucks selling his fantasies to newspapers. History will ultimately regard him as a curiosity and marginal failure.
