I don't doubt for a moment that there are very powerful controlling 'entities' in our world. It's obvious if you look back over history, how empires were built and maintained and now perpetuated. Controlling groups did indeed carve the future of the world we live in.
I think however that people put far too much emphasis on this fact. Glorifying it, giving it some air of mystery or mystique and this makes people ooh
and ahh. Look at lady gaga for an example of how much they want to believe.
They make it what it is.
But having said that, there is in my opinion, an entire world separated from the common world. Where rich people do rich people things. A club of
crazy. And no doubt that with a whim they can make or break whatever they want.
As for Tesla, I think people do the same thing. Add their own desire to what already is known.
It would be nice to think that image could have been a possible reality at sometime. But I doubt the laws of physics will break because someone
thought about things differently.
