I believe Tesla was basically trying to say that Eugenics wasn't a bad idea, but the way the Nazis went about achieving it was unquestionably evil and unnecessary.

After all, are you attracted to beauty or ugliness? health or disease? It is natural to evolve towards the better of the two, however to murder all individuals who dont fall in line is insane imho.

I just wanted to reply to this. Beauty is subjective. I have friends totally and completely in love with men and women that I think are, though nice, decent people, very ugly. So who's vision of "beauty" would be the standard there?

Diversity within the gene pool ensures our species survival. We evolve to the environment around us. By limiting that we doom our species to extinction, so no, eugenics is not (in my humble opinion) a "good" thing.

But, on topic.

Every human being is like a fine cut gem. The sparkliest facet often causes one to overlook the defects that exist elsewhere. Tesla was a "fine" gem within my metaphor. His contribution of A/C power (among other things) was the sparkly facet, his OCD, Judgmental traits among others were flaws in the gem.

No human being is perfect which is why we need each other to create the "perfect" gem.

Do we really want to idolize a eugenicist? Was Tesla really working for the common man? Who knows what the true target of this inventive genius was?


Your joking right?

it's well known that the worlds smartest people are always a bit excentric,

if we discount everything said by anyone whom has a difference in opinion in any matter from our own then we would be left discounting the creations ideas and opinions of everyone, as no two people on this earth completely agree on everything.

Well. I believe that Davinci among others was actually onto something.

I think that beauty is subjective based on our own imperfection. Subjective to a degree, but ultimately there is some sort of universal code whereby beauty is actually a constant. It is only subjective to the corrupted mind/unenlightened.

Beauty is also recognition (on an unconcious instinctive level) a marker of good health.

It is all so deeply connected and has not yet been fully acknowledged by modern science, so to say beauty is subjective is really not a fully true statement!
