Nikola Tesla was born at midnight on July 9, 1856 in Smiljan, Lika, Croatia. He was known to say, "I am a Serb but my fatherland is Croatia." At the age of twenty-six while walking with a friend in a park in Budapest, Nikola recalled, "the idea occurred to me like a flash of lightning and in a second the truth revealed itself. With a stick I drew in the sand the diagrams...". He was talking about an alternating current (AC) induction motor. Nikola patented his motor in 1893 and used it to light the World Columbian Exposition in Chicago in the same year. Then in 1896 the world's first hydroelectric power was sent from Niagara Falls to light the city of Buffalo. Nikola Tesla, through George Westinghouse, had laid the foundations of the power system used around the world today.
Many scientists and individuals acknowledge Tesla's foresightedness and accredit him as being the originator of many of today's inventions. The wording to describe Tesla's 1891 carbon button lamp (the "brush"), with minimal word change, serves well as a description of the million-magnification point electron microscope developed by Vladimir R. Zworykin in 1939. The "brush" has also been related to the cyclotron and the atom smasher.
Tesla described a vacuum bulb, considered to be the forerunner of the radio vacuum tube. He talked about visible and invisible light and described blurred photographic plates in his laboratory, considered to be the earliest reference to X-rays. And did Nikola venture into plasma physics when he created a flame and described it as "burning without consuming material or even a chemical reaction"? Fifty years before the development of the fluorescent lamp, Nikola built phosphor-coated globes and illuminated his gas-filled tubes, which he had twisted into names. The disputed credit for the invention of the radio was settled in 1943 when the U.S. Supreme Court reversed an initial finding in Marconi's favor to rule that Tesla had anticipated all other contenders with his fundamental radio patents.
The list of credits given to Nikola Tesla is large indeed. He has been associated with cosmic rays, radar, diathermy, the high-frequency furnace, wave-guide for microwave transmission, space navigation code, cryogenic engineering, electrotherapeutics, energy transmission to satellites, principles of solid state transistor technology, and the reciprocating dynamo.
Tesla's genius with electricity received further stimulation through his interest in resonance. The ubiquitous Tesla Coil is evidence of the synergy of electricity and vibrations. With a power cord from an insulated handle at one end and primary and secondary coils tuned to resonate at the other end, the Tesla Coil, when plugged in, begins to vibrate and hum. The small Tesla Coil generates high voltages and high frequencies and is used in one form or another in every radio and television set and can be found in every university science laboratory: used to detect leaks in vacuum apparatus.
It has been said that resonance is a manner in which nature works. It covers all aspects of science from electricity to nuclear fusion. Nothing exists in the Universe that does not have vibration. Nikola knew that vibration is the rapid back-and-forth motion of an object, which creates waves. He also knew that resonance is the effect of these waves on another object when, in 1898, he made an oscillator no larger than a fist and attached it to a steel link two feet long and two inches thick. "For a long time nothing happened..." he said. "But at last ... the great steel link began to tremble, increased its trembling until it dilated and contracted like a beating heart - and finally broke!"
Though his genus was often ridiculed, his own comments showed his confidence. "I know that you are a noble fellow and devoted friend and, noting your indignation at these uncalled-for attacks, I am afraid that you might give it expression. I beg you not to do it under any condition, as you would offend me. Let my 'friends' do their worst, I like it better so. Let them spring on scientific societies worthless schemes, oppose a cause which is deserving, throw sand into the eyes of those who might see - they will reap their reward in time...."
In his younger years Nikola sensed the universe was "composed of a symphony of alternating currents with the harmonies played on a vast range of octaves. The 60-cycles-per-second AC was but a single note in a lower octave. In one of the higher octaves at a frequency of billions of cycles per second was visible light. To explore this whole range of electrical vibration between his low-frequency alternating current and light waves, he sensed, would bring him closer to an understanding of the cosmic symphony." (1)
In his sunset years, Tesla believed that all matter came from a primary substance, the luminiferous ether, which filled all space.
Nikola once said, "...I continually experience an inexpressible satisfaction from the knowledge that my poly phase system is used throughout the world to lighten the burden of mankind and increase comfort."
Amongst his many legacies to society are a number of small items that employ Nikola's discoveries in both electricity and vibration. Nikola influenced the production of personal oscillators that vibrate in tune with "the luminiferous ether" (collectively called, Purple Plates). Like many of his inventions, the plates cannot be explained, and yet for over twenty-eight years the plates have continued to offer the same "increase comfort and happiness" to society that his poly phase system has provided since 1896.
Nikola Tesla, aged 86, died from coronary thrombosis at 10:30 PM on January 7, 1943 in his room at the Hotel New Yorker.
Purple Energy Plates, as Mysterious & Stragne as Their Inventor?
It’s 1898, and you just finished your day of work, perhaps plowing the fields, or teaching a small group of children how to read or write. You’re looking forward to a warm meal, sitting by the fire and reading a current article in your favorite magazine. So kick of your shoes, relax and enjoy the future you imagine, one that you may not ever witness, but nonetheless, a fascinating one.
Pointing out an article by the great scientist, we quote here from the vintage Tesla article directly:
by Nikola Tesla The Electrical Engineer. Vol. XXVI. November 17, 1898. No. 550.
“The etheric body, ether-body, æther body, a name given by neo-Theosophy to a supposed vital body propounded in esoteric philosophies as the first or lowest layer in the "human energy field" or aura. It is said to be in immediate contact with the physical body, to sustain it and connect it with the "higher" bodies.
The English term "etheric" in this context seems to derive from the Theosophical writings of Madame Blavatsky, but its use was formalised by C.W. Leadbeater, and Annie Besant due to the elimination of Hindu terminology from the system of seven planes and bodies as well.
The classical element Aether of Platonic and Aristotlean physics continued in Victorian scientific proposals of a Luminiferous ether as well as the cognate chemical substance ether. The intended reference is therefore to some extremely rarefied matter, analogous in usage to the word "spirit" (originally "breath"). In selecting it as the term for a clearly-defined concept in an Indian-derived metaphysical system, the Theosophists aligned it with ideas such as the prana-maya-kosha (sheath made of prana, subtle breath or life-force) of Vedantic thought.
Linga sarira is a Sanskrit term for the invisible double of the human body, the etheric body or etheric double (or astral body in some Theosophical concepts). It is one of the seven principles of the human being, according to Theosophical philosophy.
Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Anthroposophy, often referred to the etheric body (Ätherleib or "Life Body") in association with the etheric formative forces and the evolution of man and the cosmos. According to him, it can be perceived by a person gifted with clairvoyance as being of "peach-blossom color".
Steiner considered the etheric reality or life principle as quite distinct from the physical material reality, being intermediate between the physical world and the astral or soul world. The etheric body can be characterised as the life force also present in the plant kingdom. It maintains the physical body's form until death. At that time, it separates from the physical body and the physical reverts to natural disintegration.
The Genius of Tesla
It's not surprising that the complex genius of Nikola Tesla would influence a "free energy" device. Tesla, born in 1856 in the village of Smiljan, province of Lika (Austria- Hungary) was an eccentric but highly intelligent inventor. He created many of our modern day conveniences, including the AC, or alternating current (the basis of almost every electrical device), X-rays, fluorescent lighting, the induction motor (which utilized his rotating magnetic field principle) and terrestrial stationary waves, which he regarded as his most important discovery. By this discovery he proved that the earth could be used as a conductor and would be re- sponsive as a tuning fork to electrical vibrations of a certain pitch. At one time he was certain he had received signals from another planet in his Colorado laboratory, a claim that was met with derision in some scientific journals. The Tesla coil, which he invented in 1891, is widely used today in radio and television sets and other electronic equipment for wireless communication. It is also now known that Tesla's radio patents predated those of the credited inventor, Gugleo Marconi. Tesla's theories were met with increasing criticism, especially after his claims that he could split the earth like an apple, and that he had invented a death ray capable of destroying 10,000 airplanes from 250 miles away. Due to lack of funds (perhaps because of his seemingly odd personality traits which included a progressive germ phobia) most of his ideas remained in his notebooks, which are still studied by engineers today.
Tesla died in New York City on January 7th, 1943, the holder of more than 700 patents. The Custodian of Alien Property impounded his trunks, which contained his letters and laboratory notes. Eventually these were inherited by Tesla's nephew, Sava Kosanovich, and later installed in the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade, Yugoslavia.
The incredible life work of Tesla lends much credence to the faith in the Purple Plate's healing properties. Although the exact process of creating these plates seems to be kept confidential by the makers of them, I have personally found them to be a remarkable tool for well being.
