I have run across a few things about Nicola Tesla, and seems there are different opinions on how he died a poor well as other information.

Has anyone here read his book The Wall of Light, and if so, what are their thoughts on this book.

I am providing a link that talks about Tesla's private life, and also mentions this book, as well as the people who were closest to him. Apparently he had the belief that he was in fact Venusian , and was brought here to earth.

some excerpts from this link that I found intriguing were..

(sorry don't know how to quote with the black box..most likely very easy too :lol

Arthur makes the point that many writers have written about Tesla but never knew him. Matthews knew Tesla very well. We should not believe something because it is repeated in print. Tesla books have been written from earlier books and the earlier authors have misunderstood. Arthur wrote that Nikola Tesla 'married in 1890 - he had a son. And he died a very rich man.' This bombshell is not what virtually all other sources on Tesla report. It makes a better story if an unrecognized genius invented our modern age and died penniless.

Hopefully anyone who has some knowledge of this book, or the subject of Tesla, would be kind enough to share their thoughts.

I am a fan of Tesla
The man was wrongly classed as a mad scientist
Big money runs the world and it crushed Tesla !

Thank you for your input grandpabobby..he is indeed a fascinating character, that I would love to know more about.

Have you read the book which he partly authored...called The Wall of Light?

Would be interested in reading your thoughts on it if you have..

This was written by Arthur Mathews..

According to the world at large, Tesla had strange ideas. He always thought he came from the planet Venus. He said as much to me, and the crew of a Venus space ship said in one of their first messages, that a male child was "born" on board their ship during its trip from Venus to Earth in July, 1856. The little boy was called Nikola, which is the name of his family town, in reverse, on Venus. This is the town of ALOKIN. The ship landed at midnight, between July ninth and tenth, in a remote mountain province in what is now Yugoslavia. There, according to arrangements, the child was placed in the care of a good man and his wife. This message was first received by Arthur Matthews of Lake Beauport, Quebec, Canada, an electrical engineer who from boyhood was closely associated with Tesla.

I just find this whole theory fascinating, and would love some feedback from those who have done some research on this man, and have read The Wall of Light, as well as the Return of the Dove.

I wonder if Arthur Matthews was the son of Nikola Tesla.

Here is the most truthful and saddest thing I have ever read... It all revolves around teslas work and who killed him but people won't read it or do anything about it because it was 70years ago...Please read

I think he was...

In the early 1940s, Mr. Matthews co-authored a book along with Tesla. It is the only known writings of Tesla that was not of a technical nature. The first part of 'The Wall of Light' was written by Tesla. He writes about boyhood experiences, his feelings, his research and his strange life among humans. Matthews completes 'The Wall of Light' (a reference to an impenetrable force field device) with his incredible story that includes Close Encounters with extraterrestrials.

The painting of Matthews is so similar to the photo of Tesla; the pose, the clothes, the face and widow's peak. Was Arthur giving us a clue that he was Tesla's son?

Arthur taught me to not just believe something because it is repeated in books. I'll take the word of the man who knew Tesla. Matthews might have been Tesla's son. Tesla may have originated from within Venus. If anyone was an alien; a Man Who Fell to Earth, it was Tesla.

OP, thank you! I enjoyed the Tesla read.
Honestly, I had never read Wall of Light; but now I may just go pick up a copy!
I had always been so wrapped up in his technical prints~

Truly, if any man were to have come from another world, it was Nikola Tesla.

It saddens me to think what 'could've been' if only monetary greed did not try to quench Tesla's brilliant mind.
How different would today's world be with free energy, wireless transmission, etc.
He had a profound ability to combine modern intellect and science, with the living world that surrounds us.

He was a man far beyond his time, even in today's standards.
If I could ever go back in time, he would definitely be one of the top of my 'persons to meet' lists!

The below is some excerpts taken from the book called Return of the Dove, from a chapter titled The Arthur Matthews Story..written by Margaret Storm, apparently a close family friend.(perhaps mother of Arthur?)

July 5 1980, Dear Mr. Yurchey, Thank you for your very welcome letter and interesting information. Thank you for kind remarks about Tesla. A lot of persons have wrote about him, but have used information of others. If you intend to do a true book about Tesla - the only place to obtain true information is from the patents - lectures, articles and his own life story - and the only place to find his life story is in 'The Wall of Light.' Tesla was never a dreamer...he was a real man. He believed in God - and the Bible. He married in 1890 - he had a son. And he died a very rich man. Sincerely, Arthur Matthews

'Then to Arthur Matthews, he gave a design for an interplanetary communications set. He left to Matthews the task of getting the public interested in communicating with the inhabitants of other planets.'

March 2 1983 Dear Doug, The chapter from your book came this afternoon. I have spent some time reading them and I find them good reading. Very good in fact. But before you send it to be published... be sure of your facts. Study the remarks of Tesla in his own life story before you publish the remarks on Mr. Morgan - for he and Tesla were always friends. Morgan did not remove his support and faith in Tesla. They were firm friends. Tesla had loads of money. He was never poor. He died a rich man. It was Tesla who removed the tower on Long Island, not the U.S. government. He was not told to remove the tower. Tesla removed it at his own loss. Because it was thought it would be used against the U.S. by the Germans. (WWI) By all means do not get information from books. Get true facts from Tesla lectures, articles, patents and his own life story in 'The Wall of Light' - This is the only true story. Yours truly, Arthur

just want to highlight this part for everyone..again..

Tesla had loads of money. He was never poor. He died a rich man. It was Tesla who removed the tower on Long Island, not the U.S. government. He was not told to remove the tower. Tesla removed it at his own loss. Because it was thought it would be used against the U.S. by the Germans

PS: Tesla was a wise man. No one cheated him. Some did try. He got a million cash from Westinghouse in 1893 - it was invested. So think it over. Also, Tesla sold all of his patents. He died happy, and rich. Don't believe writers of old books.

After receiving the 1980 letter, I immediately wrote back to Arthur and asked him: Are you Tesla's son? He did not answer me. He completely went around the question... so I dropped it. I felt like I was asking Clark Kent if he was Superman. If Arthur was his son, why the secrecy? My guess is that this is too human a thing for such a Nikola Tesla Superstar.
