Nikola Tesla is a fascinating character study and a misunderstood man-hybrid-alien. His life prompted me to write X Point.
What set Nikola Tesla apart from other inventors of his time, like Thomas Edison, was Tesla’s fearless fusion of the sacred, supernatural, and science—without apology.
He eschewed fortune and believed we all deserve free energy—that it exists and should be available to anyone. Tesla also had his quirks…he never married, doted on pet pigeons, loathed pearls, believed the numbers 3, 6, and 9 held keys to the universe, and claimed to have intercepted and communicated with beings from other planets.
Tesla allegedly died January 7th, 1943, in the New Yorker Hotel (Room 3327 & 3328 on the 33rd Floor) in New York City. He was 83 years-old and his cause of death was ruled coronary thrombosis.
Built with its own private power plant, The New Yorker Hotel was the most technologically advanced building of its day. It also had an underground tunnel to Penn Station. Tesla’s body and thousands of his papers, later classified as “Top Secret” by the US government, were removed from the hotel ASAP.
What most people don’t know is that Tesla received a lump sum payment of $216k or roughly $5.4 million in today’s money, from Westinghouse, for his invention on alternating current. Westinghouse also paid Tesla’s rent and bills ‘for the rest of his life’, including his stay at the New Yorker.
This is where it gets interesting… Westinghouse participated in the US government’s military program for nuclear energy applications (e.g. The Nuclear Navy). The company was instrumental in the development and commercialization of nuclear energy systems for electric power generation and was owned by Electricite de France (EDF), a major global player in the nuclear power business, and long-time licensee of Westinghouse nuclear technology. Westinghouse was later sold to Viacom, a multi-media company with heavy governmental ties.
Tesla’s final days were reclusive as he was under constant surveillance. This is likely because of a “death ray” he tried to sell, without success, to multiple governments, at the height of World War II. He claimed it would stop armies in their tracks and had the capacity to decimate fleets of warships. But he also said, if used correctly, it could serve as a weapon of peace.
While a guest of the New Yorker, Tesla spent most of his time tending pet pigeons. In retrospect, his “being in love” with a bird was probably governmental propaganda to discredit him, and more likely his ruse to send undetected messages via carrier pigeon, out of his hotel window.
It’s interesting to note that J.P. Morgan pulled Tesla’s funding for Wardenclyffe laboratory in Shoreham, Long Island. Tesla was building a “Tesla Tower”, a 185-foot high structure with a 65-foot copper dome transmitter on top. He hoped his tower would be used to transmit unlimited, free, wireless electricity around the globe. His vision was realized…but it doesn’t come free for us, Joe or Jane Public.
In fact, most of the research on Tesla’s free energy technology came from the Department of Energy’s sharing his classified papers with private companies. Those businesses in turn, create “inventions” like GPS and smart phones, years after the technology becomes obsolete for deep government.
But there’s more to the story…join me tomorrow for more about Tesla and his alleged connection to extraterrestrials.
