So many inane comments to respond to, so little time...
I'll start with the wacko who called Tesla a reptilian - you sir, are a prime example of WHY the PTB classify certain inventions as 'highly secret -
military potential'. If someone like you ever got hold of some of Tesla's more exotic energetic applications; well, God help us all.
Moving swiftly on. The 'real engineer' who went out of his way to explain how 'real' he is (in terms of engineering skills I suppose..) Why you
feel the need to ram the obvious point about maintenance, repair & replace costs down our collective throats baffles me. What are the alternatives?
The current fossil-fuel-reliant system? That behemoth drains more resources from the average citizen/ nation state in a few days, than a properly
applied ionosphere generator would in a whole year. In addition, the current (EXCEEDINGLY-NON-FREE) fossil-fuel energy system pollutes our natural
environment, contributes to the ailing health of the global populace, and allows the few to control the many... I would happily try building and
installing various prototypes of these devices, and happen to have a family member who is a dab-hand at hobbyist electrical & mechanical engineering,
machine-working etc. He could've done it for a career if he hadn't been a medical professional instead.
I would like to see you (resident 'real engineer') concentrate less on promising to tell us how stuff works (we can all research the net) and more on
building some of these devices, publishing your results/ conclusions etc. You know what they say - "Those who can, engineer - those who
***** ***** ***** *****
Anyway - to the OP - thanks for bringing Tesla to the fore on ATS once more.
I, like several others on the thread, saw 'The Prestige' on BBC 2 last night here in the UK. Excellent film. It is a work of fiction; but Tesla
truly was a wizard of some sort.
I'm intrigued by the comments about him being a poet, and having 'visionary flashes'.. I hadn't come across that info before. To the people who
shared those comments, and to all others who have contributed in positive, resourceful and enthusiastic ways, I salute you! The future belongs to
Tesla - and us!
