“The greatest triumphs of man were those in which his mind had to free itself from the influence of delusive appearances. Such was the revelation of Buddha that self is an illusion caused by the persistence and continuity of mental images: the discovery of Copernicus that, contrary to all observation, this planet rotates around the sun; the recognition of Descartes that the human being is an automaton, governed by external influence, and the idea that the earth is spherical, which led Columbus to the finding of this continent.”

“There were certain steps to be accomplished, however, before the wireless could be on a really practical and scientific basis. The next step to accomplish, after all had been done, was to design an apparatus which will exactly suit the earth; that is, which will give the proper wavelengths suitable for it, and will also be in all other respects adapted to the physical conditions of the globe on which we live, and to the place which the plant in erected. The earth is not a sphere; it is an oblate spheroid, owing to the effect of centrifugal force. Now it makes all the difference whether a scientifically correct apparatus is placed in a northern region, near the pole, or near the equator, because the length of the conductor is not the same.”
