“According to the Relativists, space has a tendency to curvature owing to an inherent property or presence of celestial bodies. Granting a semblance of reality to this fantastic idea, it is still self-contradictory. Every action is accompanied by an equivalent reaction and the effects of the latter are directly opposite to those of the former. Supposing that the bodies act upon the surrounding space causing curvature of the same, it appears to my simple mind that the curved spaces must react on the bodies and, producing the opposite effects, straighten out the curves. Since action and reaction are coexistent, it follows that the supposed curvature of space is entirely impossible. But even if it existed it would not explain the motions of the bodies as observed. Only the existence of a field of force can account for them and its assumption dispenses with space curvature. All literature on this subject is futile and destined to oblivion. So are also all attempts to explain the workings of the universe without recognizing the existence of the ether and the indispensable function it plays in the phenomena.”

The inventor already has in his laboratory a “cosmic” machine, he disclosed. He said it was driven by “cosmic particles” which strike the earth at speeds 50 times greater than light. He contended that such machines, if perfected, will supply enough power for New York city from cosmic particles striking one square foot.

The relativists theory holds that light, traveling 182,000 miles a second, is the greatest velocity. Tesla said the theory is a “mass of errors,” and that science had overlooked cosmic particles by concentrating upon cosmic rays.

My Translation of Nikola Tesla’s Poem, “Fragments of Olympian Gossip.”

While listening on my cosmic phone (Tesla listening to his receiving device in his laboratory)
I caught words from the Olympus blown. (He’s eavesdropping on heaven, or Olympus, where the Gods of science live)
A newcomer was shown around; (Lord Kelvin is the newcomer. He was a great scientist and a friend of Tesla’s who had passed away in 1907.)
That much I could guess, aided by sound. (From what Tesla could hear through his device)
“There’s Archimedes with his lever (Lord Kelvin’s mysterious chaperone points out Archimedes)
Still busy on problems as ever. (Who even in the afterlife is still working on his mathematical problems)
Says: matter and force are transmutable (Archimedes thinks matter and force can be changed from one nature to another)
And wrong the laws you thought immutable.” (Lord Kelvin thought force and matter were unalterable and followed Isaac Newton’s physics as a truth)
“Below, on Earth, they work at full blast
And news are coming in thick and fast.
(News from earth to heaven)
The latest tells of a cosmic gun.
(Around the time this poem was conducted Guglielmo Marconi was frightening the public with a Ray-gun for war)
To be pelted is very poor fun. (violence is immoral)
We are wary with so much at stake, (Heaven is wary of mankind)
Those beggars are a pest—no mistake.” (The attention seekers of science are becoming nuisances)
“Too bad, Sir Isaac, they dimmed your renown (Now Lord Kelvin is speaking to his chaperone, which we now learn is Isaac Newton)
And turned your great science upside down. (Modern science is ruining Newtonian physics)
Now a long haired crank, Einstein by name, (Albert Einstein)
Puts on your high teaching all the blame. (Einstein’s theories oppose Newtonian physics)
Says: matter and force are transmutable (Einstein, like Archimedes, thought force and matter could be changed into each other. Newton believed matter and force are unalterable)
And wrong the laws you thought immutable.” (Einstein physics implies Newtonian physics aren’t a truth)
“I am much too ignorant, my son, (Newton speaking again)
For grasping schemes so finely spun. (Referring to Einstein’s abstract theories)
My followers are of stronger mind (Those scientists who still follow Newtonian physics and causation)
And I am content to stay behind, (He’ll stick with his own theories and let science go in error)
Perhaps I failed, but I did my best,
These masters of mine may do the rest.
(Tesla)
Come, Kelvin, I have finished my cup.
When is your friend Tesla coming up.”
(Newton asking Kelvin when Tesla will join them in Olympus)
“Oh, quoth Kelvin, he is always late, (Tesla was never on time)
It would be useless to remonstrate.” (And it’s pointless to try and change it)
Then silence—shuffle of soft slippered feet— (End of conversation between Kelvin and Newton)
I knock and—the bedlam of the street. (Tesla departs from his dream and his laboratory into the busy streets of New York City)

Nikola Tesla

(Poem written by Nikola Tesla in the 1920s to his friend George Sylvester Viereck.)

Nikola Tesla was asked to select his choice of the greatest…

Nikola Tesla was asked to select his choice of the greatest modern and future wonders, but the electrical wizard refused to accept the popular notion of what is wonderful. His reply led to an onslaught on scientists and the popular science community.

“To the popular mind, any manifestation resulting from any cause will appear wonderful if there is no perceptible connection between cause and effect. For instance, through the means of wireless telephone speech is carried to opposite points of the globe. To the vast majority this must appear miraculous. To the expert who is familiar with the apparatus and sees it in his mind’s eye the result is obvious. It is exactly as though visible means existed to which the impetus is transmitted.

“As I revolve in my mind the thoughts in answer to your question I find the most wonderful thing is the utter aberration of the scientific mind during the last twenty five years. In that time the relativity theory [Albert Einstein], the electron theory [J. J. Thomson], the quantum theory [Max Planck, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, Erwin Schrödinger, Arthur Compton, Paul Dirac, Wolfgang Pauli], the theory of radioactivity [Marie Curie] and others have been worked out and developed to an amazing degree. And yet probably not less than 90 per cent of what is thought today to be demonstrable scientific truth is nothing but unrealizable dreams.

“What is ‘thought’ in relativity, for example, is not science, but some kind of metaphysics based on abstract mathematical principles and conceptions which will be forever incomprehensible to beings like ourselves whose whole knowledge is derived from a three-dimensional world.

“The idea of the atom being formed of electrons and protons which go whirling round each other like a miniature sun and planets is an invention of the imagination, and has no relation to the real nature of matter.

“Virtually all progress has been achieved by physicists, discoverers and inventors; in short, devotees of the science which Newton and his disciples have been and are propounding.

“Personally, it is only efforts in this direction which have claimed my energies. Similar remarks might be made with respect to other modern developments of thought. Take, for example, the electron theory. Perhaps no other has given rise to so many erroneous ideas and chimerical hopes. Everybody speaks of electrons as something entirely definite and real. Still, the fact is that nobody has isolated it and nobody has measured its charge. Nor does anybody know what it really is.

“In order to explain the observed phenomena, atomic structures have been imagined [Quantum Mechanics], none of which can possibly exist. But the worst illusion to which modern thought has led is the idea of ‘indeterminacy’ [ex. Uncertainty Principle: W. Heisenberg, E. Schrödinger]. To make this clear, I may remark that heretofore we have in positive science assumed that every effect is the result of a preceding cause.

“As far as I am concerned, I can say that after years of concentrated thought and investigation there is no truth in nature of which I would be more fully convinced. But the new theories of ‘indeterminacy’ state this is not true, that an effect cannot be predicted in advance.

“If two planets collide at certain time and certain place, this is to the student of positive science an inevitable result of preceding interactions between the bodies; and if our knowledge would be adequate, we would be able to foretell the event accurately.

“But in the spirit of the new theories this would simply be an accident. ‘Indeterminacy’ introduces into the world of inert matter a principle which might virtually be compared with the universal illusion of free will.

“Of course, there is no such thing. In years of experimenting I have found that every thought I conceive, every act I perform, is the result of external impressions on my senses.

“It is only because the vast majority of human being are not observant sufficiently that they live in the illusion of perfect choice and freedom in their thoughts and actions. And if this holds true even in the most complex and involved manifestations of human life, it holds true with the same force in all the world of matter.”

–Nikola Tesla

drnikolatesla:

The National Geographic Channel has a pretty decent biopic series on Albert Einstein. I’m a science nerd so I’ve definitely been watching it, and since Nikola Tesla was one of Einstein’s biggest critics, I’ll leave you with something to think about if you decide to watch it as well.

We know that Einstein’s Theory​ of Special Relativity says that the increased relativistic mass (m) of a body comes from the energy of motion of the body (e=mc²)—that is, its kinetic energy (E)—divided by the speed of light. The equation expresses a theory that mass and energy are the same physical entity and can be changed into each other. It also asserts that speeds greater than 186,300 miles per second (speed of light) are impossible in the universe. It is literally one of the principal tenets of the theory; that the mass of a body increases with its speed, and would become infinite at the velocity of light. Hence, a greater velocity is impossible.

Nikola Tesla positively denied that Einstein’s theory was true, not just because he rejected the idea that matter is convertible into energy, and energy into matter, or even the existence of space-time, but because he himself had measured speeds traveling faster than light in numerous experiments.

In 1899 he conducted experiments at Colorado Springs where he sent currents from his transmitter around earth and back to his receiver traveling at a mean velocity of 292,815 miles per second. On April of 1900 he published a patent on this transmitter titled the Art of Transmitting Electrical Energy Through the Natural Medium, which was just a play thing compared to his Magnifying Transmitter patented in 1914. Not only this, but as far back as 1896 he conducted experiments on cosmic rays where he measured cosmic ray velocities from the star, Antares, which he measured to be fifty times greater than the speed of light, thus demolishing one of the basic pillars of the structure of relativity.

Whether you believe Tesla witnessed and measured such speeds or not, his statements should still be given due consideration. After all, both Einstein and Tesla were remarkable scientists, but Einstein relied on abstract mathematics, while Tesla followed the scientific method and was solely dependent on actual experimentation. Tesla’s work and theories have yet to be proven wrong either.

Here are 5 quotes from Tesla critiquing Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Enjoy (((:

  1. What is ‘thought’ in relativity, for example, is not science, but some kind of metaphysics based on abstract mathematical principles and conceptions which will be forever incomprehensible to beings like ourselves whose whole knowledge is derived from a three-dimensional world.” 

    –NT  (“Great Scientific Discovery Impends.” Sunday Star. Washington D.C., May 17, 1931.)


  2. We read a great deal about matter being changed into force and force being changed into matter by the cosmic rays. This is absurd. It is the same as saying that the body can be changed into the mind, and the mind into the body. We know that the mind is a functioning of the body, and in the same manner force is a function of matter. Without the body there can be no mind, without matter there can be no force. Einstein has for years developed formulas explaining the mechanism of the cosmos. In doing this he overlooked an important factor, namely the fact that some of the heavenly bodies are increasing in distance from the sun. This is the same as writing a business letter and forgetting the subject you wish to write about. In order to explain this phenomenon Einstein has invented the quantity “lambda.” 
    My theory of gravitation explains this phenomenon perfectly.” –NT  (Tesla’s statement relating to force and matter, to Einstein’s theories, and Tesla’s own theory of gravitation. Courtesy of Nikola Tesla Papers. Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Columbia University. April 15, 1932.)
  3. “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 (“Pioneer Radio Engineer Gives Views On Power.” New York Herald Tribune, September 11, 1932.)
  4. “[The Theory of Relativity] is a mass of errors and deceptive ideas violently opposed to the teachings of great men of science of the past and even to common sense. The theory wraps all these errors and fallacies and clothes them in magnificent mathematical garb which fascinates, dazzles and makes people blind to the underlying errors. The theory is like a beggar clothed in purple whom ignorant people take for a king. Its exponents are very brilliant men, but they are metaphysicists rather than scientists. Not a single one of the relativity propositions has been proved.” –NT (“Tesla, 79, Promises to Transmit Force.” New York Times, July 11, 1935.)
  5. “The kinetic and potential energy of a body is the result of motion and determined by the product of its mass and the square of velocity. Let the mass be reduced, the energy is diminished in the same proportion. If it be reduced to zero the energy is likewise zero for any finite velocity. In other words, it is absolutely impossible to convert mass into energy. It would be different if there were forces in nature capable of imparting to a mass infinite velocity. Then the product of zero mass with the square of infinite velocity would represent infinite energy. But we know that there are no such forces and the idea that mass is convertible into energy is rank nonsense…
