The True Story of Nikola Tesla (In A Nutshell)

In the past, Direct Current was thought to be the future of power transmission. Then a young pimp named Nikola Tesla stepped in and showed that Alternating Current was the future. The inventor was ridiculed, bashed and attacked for years by Thomas Edison and his nut-hugging associates who were blinded by commercial interests. However, like a true playa, Tesla rose above the comp and proved that AC booty🍑 was far more superior than DC. Eventually, all scientists/inventors/engineers realized AC’s advantages to DC, and all the crony capitalists of the time instantly switched to AC to reap off Nik’s swagger. So while everyone else was finally catching up to the young pimp, Tesla finessed on to new discoveries in power transmission–world wireless power transmission. Nik Titties proved in numerous experiments throughout the late 1800s that energy could be transmitted wirelessly through the air, and or the earth, and power the world’s machinery. He did everything he could to share his advancement with the world, but unfortunately the commercial development of AC had taken full force, and the development of power transmission could not misdirect again like it had from DC to AC. The OG was pushed aside and ignored while the children played with his kid toys. So the Industrial Revolution progressed using Tesla’s primitive work, and now the world is a hundred years behind in development with no signs of returning back to the direction dreamed by NT.

And this… is the true story of Nikola Tesla (in a nutshell).

“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 percent of his labor.”

“TESLA ON POWER DEVELOPMENT AND FUTURE MARVELS.” (Part 1)

“I am a reader of your excellent paper and frequently preserve excerpts of interest to me for future reference.

“One of these is an article by William Engle, in your issue of June 29, 1934, dealing with hydro-electric development in which the author characterizes my recent announcement of a new inexhaustible source of power as "nebulous.”

“All preliminary information is necessarily incomplete, but I always make sure that it is based on demonstrated fact and accurate as far as it goes. My illustrious namesake, Copernicus, used to go twenty times over his scientific statements before giving them out; nevertheless, compared with the attention I bestow upon my own, he might have been considered a careless man.

"The author of the article gives an eloquent account of water power development, recalling vividly to my mind the almost miraculous way in which success with my alternating system was achieved. As I review the past, I realize how fortunate it was that at the time when, after years of fruitless talking to deaf ears, I finally managed to be heard by a few, there was a man in the electrical industry towering above all others, like Samson over the Philistines. A genius of the first degree, inventive ability and mastery of business, a man truly great, of phenomenal powers—George Westinghouse. He espoused my cause and undertook to wage a war against overwhelming odds.

"The alternating current was completely discredited, decried as deadly and of no commercial value. Edison thought that the wires might be used for hanging laundry to dry. Steinmetz had a very poor opinion of my induction motor. The old interests were powerful and resolved to fight any encroachment on their business by all means fair or foul. But Westinghouse was not dismayed and threw all his energy and resources into the battle of the century. More than once he came near to being snuffed out, but finally he routed his opponents and put the new industry on a firm foundation. It was a monumental achievement unparalleled in the history of technical development. The service he rendered to the world is beyond estimate.

"But it took another human dynamo, a genius of a different kind—Samuel Insull—to enlarge on the work of Westinghouse and apply the system on a colossal scale.

"Insull concentrated his efforts on cheapening the production, transmission and distribution of power. He recognized early the economic advantages of large units and prevailed upon the manufacturers to supply him with huge turbo-generators, regardless of cost. He introduced other improvements raising the efficiency and range of central stations and finally realized, practically and successfully, the Super Power System which I had barely suggested in 1893. The results he obtained were such as to astonish engineers, and his bold example was quickly followed here as well as in other countries, saving immense sums of money to the consumers.

"At present the work of Westinghouse and Insull is carried further in every corner of the globe, providing new resources, transforming cities and communities and contributing to the safety, comfort and convenience of hundreds of millions. Let us thank the stars that these great pioneers lived in our time, as otherwise we might have had to wait a century for the benefits we now enjoy.”

“Edison and his associates bitterly opposed the introduction of my system, raising a clamor against the “deadliness” of the alternating current, which proved very effective and led to the adoption of a commercial type of machine in electrocution of criminals, an apparatus monstrously unsuitable, for the poor wretches are not despatched in a merciful manner but literally roasted alive. To the observer their sufferings seem to be of short duration; it must be borne in mind, though, that an individual under such conditions, while wholly bereft of the consciousness of the lapse of time, retains a keen sense of pain, and a minute of agony is equivalent to that through all eternity.

“Had the Edison companies not finally adopted my invention they would have been wiped out of existence, and yet not the slightest acknowledgment of my labors has ever been made by any of them, a most remarkable instance of the proverbial unfairness and ingratitude of corporations. But the reason is not far to see. One of their prominent men told me that they are spending $10,000,000 every year to keep Edison’s name before the public, and he added that it is worth more to them. Of course, in all that unceasing and deafening shouting from the housetops any voice raised to apprise people of the real state of things is like the chirp of a little sparrow in the roar of Niagara. So it comes that very few have a clear idea of the situation.“

“The explanation of Tesla’s discoveries are to be found in the science of electricity rather than the science of physics. The science of electricity has been dormant since the days of Steinmetz, Tesla and Heaviside. This is primarily due to vested interests which we may call the “Edison Effect.“

4 Electrical Engineers Who History Honors But In Reality Were Giant Douches

By the end of the “War of Currents,” which lasted throughout the late 1880s and mid 1890s, 4 famous electrical engineers were left bitter, salty, and butthurt beyond belief
after battling with Nikola Tesla and his Alternating Current system. Thomas Edison, Elihu Thomson, Michael Pupin, and Charles Steinmetz, all walked a little funny after the current war (Steinmetz even worse than before), and all had to use that cream.

The truth is that they all played their part in discrediting Nikola Tesla and erasing him from history. None could accept defeat and rather chose to nut hug their own pride.

Edison was the biggest douche–using the AC system to electrocute animals, and by introducing the electric chair to show the dangers of Tesla’s system. Thomson, the second biggest, hired a janitor to steal AC blueprints from the Westinghouse Company so his company could bypass Tesla’s patents and build their own AC system. Pupin was a butt douche (poop is in his name) who discredited Tesla as the true inventor of the AC motor in lectures and in his Pulitzer Prize winning autobiography– even though the inventors he gave credit to admitted they got their idea from Tesla. He was just dick riding the others douches. Steinmetz, who worked for Thomson and helped him try and bypass Tesla’s patents, was a faux socialist who purposely omitted any reference to Tesla in his famous writings on AC phenomena because… well he was embarrassed about that whole committing industrial espionage thing.

Clearly it was in all their best interest to pretend like Tesla never existed. Unfortunately, these engineers would have a major effect in the history of science and their contempt for Tesla would eliminate him from being recognized as one of the most important figures in scholarly textbooks. This is why Tesla has been forgotten in time. Because of these douchebags. ???
