"Money does not represent such a value as men have placed upon it. All my money has been invested into experiments with which I have made new discoveries enabling mankind to have a little easier life. " NT
"If Edison had a needle to find in a haystack, he would proceed at once with the diligence of the bee to examine straw after straw until he found the object of his search. … I was a sorry witness of such doings, knowing that a little theory and calculation would have saved him ninety per cent of his labor." NT
"I hold that space cannot be curved, for the simple reason that it can have no properties. It might as well be said that God has properties. He has not, but only attributes and these are of our own making. Of properties we can only speak when dealing with matter filling the space. To say that in the presence of large bodies space becomes curved is equivalent to stating that something can act upon nothing. I, for one, refuse to subscribe to such a view. " NT
The Problem of Increasing Human Energy (1900)
When we speak of man, we have a conception of humanity as a whole, and before applying scientific methods to the investigation of his movement we must accept this as a physical fact. But can anyone doubt to-day that all the millions of individuals and all the innumerable types and characters constitute an entity, a unit? Though free to think and act, we are held together, like the stars in the firmament, with ties inseparable. These ties cannot be seen, but we can feel them. I cut myself in the finger, and it pains me: this finger is a part of me. I see a friend hurt, and it hurts me, too: my friend and I are one. And now I see stricken down an enemy, a lump of matter which, of all the lumps of matter in the universe, I care least for, and it still grieves me. Does this not prove that each of us is only part of a whole? Nikola Tesla

Tesla designed and built small compact and portable aether energy receivers, a developmental path, which he pursued to his passing. Tesla had long investigated the use of pure dielectric field energy, a stream of aether whose individual pulsations were so very ultra short that science had never found a means to harness the energy impulses.
Tesla later held the opinion that dielectric current was composed of radiant particles, aetheric in nature. He therefore sought natural sources in which native dielectric fields could be used as they were, without the need for mammoth voltage "shocks" to stigmata aetheric currents. Tesla knew that if dielectric aether streams could be directly engaged, a true world of the future would be in his grasp.
Of a truth, dielectric energy was native source of incredible proportion and virtually eternal duration.
"[An engineer's] invention causes things to come into existence from ideas, makes world conform to thought; whereas science, by deriving ideas from observation, makes thought conform to existence." ~Carl Mitcham
The trouble with Nikola Tesla is that he lives a century ahead of his time. He has often been denounced as a dreamer even by well informed men. He has been called crazy by others who ought to know better. For Tesla talks in a language that most of us do not as yet understand. But as the years roll on Science more and more appreciates his greatness, and begins to pay him tribute more and more. In 1893, three years prior to the earliest attempts in Hertz wave telegraphy, Tesla first described his wireless system and took out patents on a number of novel devices which were then but imperfectly understood. Even the electrical world at large laughed at these patents. But large wireless interests had to pay him tribute in the form of real money, because his "fool" patents were recognized to be fundamental. He actually antedated every important wireless invention.
Nikola Tesla Who was Nikola Tesla (1856 - 1943), anyway? "He is simply the greatest inventor who ever lived," filmmaker Carole Bourgeois told Mashable. "Electricity is his story and the ultimate epic American story: an immigrant finding his inspiration in this country, youth against the establishment, good against evil." Tesla's most famous invention — one that you use every day — was alternating current (A/C), which makes it possible to send electricity over long distances. But that's just the beginning of his astonishing list of innovations and inventions. The true inventor of radio, x-rays, radar, remote control and wireless charging was edged out of widespread fame during his lifetime — many say by greedy businessmen who were better at selling than inventing. Tesla is often compared to Thomas Edison, so we asked Carole Bourgeois what she thinks Edison would have thought of her project. "Despite his famous 'American sense of humor,' he would hate it," she said. "He hated Tesla and ended up taking credit for all his work, so he certainly wouldn't be happy with some measure of the immense credit Tesla deserves being restored right now, through our work and the work of others." The production team has already completed much of the movie, a labor of love that would have cost at least $300,000 if the filmmakers hadn't been able to ask friends and Tesla enthusiasts for favors. According to Carole Bourgeois, "We've already started production, but no target date for release or distribution has been set. We've got to get it funded with everyone's help first, and then it also depends on who might be interested in releasing and distributing it." Now the bills have come due, and the filmmakers need to wrap up the production and pay back those who helped finance it. Do you think this is a worthy project, bringing to light all of the inventions and innovations pioneered by Nikola Tesla? Will it be able to change history? Let us know in the comments below.

Der Electro-Technische Anzeiger, Berlin, and Elektrizität, Leipzig, Germany, (commenting upon Tesla's work): "It is a combination of the grandest power of technical performance with the most vivid imagination, such as has never before manifested itself in the human mind."
