The bulk of the theory was developed between and , during the period that he was conducting experiments with high frequency and high potential electromagnetism and patenting devices for their use. Reminiscent of Mach's principle , Tesla stated in that:. There is no thing endowed with life—from man, who is enslaving the elements, to the nimblest creature—in all this world that does not sway in its turn. Whenever action is born from force, though it be infinitesimal, the cosmic balance is upset and the universal motion results.

The theory is like a beggar clothed in purple whom ignorant people take for a king 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. Later in life, Tesla made remarkable claims concerning a " teleforce " weapon.


Tesla worked on plans for a directed-energy weapon from the early s until his death. In , Tesla wrote a treatise entitled " The Art of Projecting Concentrated Non-dispersive Energy through the Natural Media ", which concerned charged particle beams. It describes an open-ended vacuum tube with a gas jet seal that allows particles to exit, a method of charging particles to millions of volts, and a method of creating and directing nondispersive particle streams through electrostatic repulsion. His records indicate that the device is based on a narrow stream of atomic clusters of liquid mercury or tungsten accelerated via high voltage by means akin to his magnifying transformer.

Tesla gives the following description concerning the particle gun ' s operation:.

Making Something From Nothing

The weapon could be used against ground based infantry or for antiaircraft purposes. He was unable to act on his plans. Another of Tesla's theorized inventions is commonly referred to as Tesla's Flying Machine , which appears to resemble an ion-propelled aircraft. Initially, Tesla pondered about the idea of a flying craft that would fly using an electric motor powered by grounded base stations.

As time progressed, Tesla suggested that perhaps such an aircraft could be run entirely electro-mechanically. The theorized appearance would typically take the form of a cigar or saucer. Tesla was fluent in eight languages. Tesla may have suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder , and had many unusual quirks and phobias. He did things in threes, and was adamant about staying in a hotel room with a number divisible by three.

Tesla was physically revolted by jewelry, notably pearl earrings.

Impressive Results From the Testing Labs

Tesla was obsessed with pigeons, ordering special seeds for the pigeons he fed in Central Park and even bringing injured ones into his hotel room to nurse them back to health. He was celibate and claimed that his chastity was very helpful to his scientific abilities. Tesla, though polite, behaved rather ambivalently to these women in the romantic sense.

Tesla was prone to alienating himself and was generally soft-spoken. However, when he did engage in a social life, many people spoke very positively and admiringly of him. Robert Underwood Johnson described him as attaining a "distinguished sweetness, sincerity, modesty, refinement, generosity, and force. Nevertheless, Tesla could be harsh at times; he openly expressed his disgust for overweight people, once firing a secretary because of her weight.

Tesla was widely known for his great showmanship, presenting his innovations and demonstrations to the public as an artform, almost like a magician. This seems to conflict with his observed reclusiveness; Tesla was a complicated figure. He refused to hold conventions without his Tesla coil blasting electricity throughout the room, despite the audience often being terrified, though he assured them everything was perfectly safe.

In middle age, Tesla became close friends with Mark Twain. They spent a lot of time together in his lab and elsewhere. Tesla remained bitter in the aftermath of his dispute with Edison. The day after Edison died the New York Times contained extensive coverage of Edison's life, with the only negative opinion coming from Tesla, who was quoted as saying:.

Shortly before he died, Edison said that his biggest mistake had been in trying to develop direct current, rather than the superior alternating current system that Tesla had put within his grasp. Tesla was good friends with Robert Underwood Johnson.

He ripped up a Westinghouse contract that would have made him the world's first billionaire, in part because of the implications it would have on his future vision of free power, and in part because it would run Westinghouse out of business, and Tesla had no desire to deal with the creditors. Tesla lived the last ten years of his life in a two-room suite on the 33rd floor of the Hotel New Yorker , room There, near the end of his life, Tesla showed signs of encroaching senility, claiming to be visited by a specific white pigeon daily.

Call for Papers

Several biographers note that Tesla viewed the death of the pigeon as a "final blow" to himself and his work. Tesla believed that war could not be avoided until the cause for its recurrence was removed, but was opposed to wars in general. However, Tesla came to find exceptions in which he thought certain situations and wars were justifiable.

Tesla was a life-long bachelor. Like many of his era, he became a proponent of a self-imposed selective breeding version of eugenics. In a interview, he stated:.

In , Tesla commented on the ills of the social subservience of women and the struggle of women toward gender equality , indicated that humanity's future would be run by "Queen Bees". He believed that women would become the dominant sex in the future. In his later years Tesla became a vegetarian. In an article for Century Illustrated Magazine he wrote: "It is certainly preferable to raise vegetables, and I think, therefore, that vegetarianism is a commendable departure from the established barbarous habit.

He also argued that animal slaughter was "wanton and cruel". In his final years he suffered from extreme sensitivity to light, sound and other influences. Tesla died of heart failure alone in room of the New Yorker Hotel , on 7 January Later that year the US Supreme Court upheld Tesla's patent number in a ruling that served as the basis for patented radio technology in the United States.

The urn was placed in the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade. Shortly thereafter Tesla's papers and other property were impounded by the United States' Alien Property Custodian office in Tesla's compound at the Manhattan Warehouse, even though he was a naturalized citizen. John G. Trump was the main government official who went over Tesla's secret papers after his death in Trump was also a professor at M.

Trump reported afterwards that no examination had been made of the vast amount of Tesla's property, that had been in the basement of the New Yorker Hotel, ten years prior to Tesla's death, or of any of his papers, except those in his immediate possession at the time of his death. Trump concluded in his report, that there was nothing that would constitute a hazard in unfriendly hands. At the time of his death, Tesla had been working on the Teleforce weapon, or 'death ray,' that he had unsuccessfully marketed to the US War Department. It appears that Teleforce was related to his research into ball lightning and plasma , and was conceived as a particle beam weapon.

The US government did not find a prototype of the device in the safe.


The personal effects were sequestered on the advice of presidential advisers; J. Edgar Hoover declared the case most secret, because of the nature of Tesla's inventions and patents. Altogether, in Tesla's effects, there were the contents of his safe, two truckloads of papers and apparati from his hotel, another 75 packing crates and trunks in a storage facility, and another 80 large storage trunks in another storage facility.

The Navy and several "federal officials" spent two days microfilming some of the material at the Office of Alien Properties storage facility in , and that was it, until Oct. Tesla's family and the Yugoslav embassy struggled with the American authorities to gain these items after his death because of the potential significance of some of his research.

Eventually Mr. Apart from doing pure work on inventing things, Tesla has also written a number of books and articles for magazines and journals. Another monument to Tesla, featuring him standing on a portion of an alternator, was established at Queen Victoria Park in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

The monument was officially unveiled on 9 July on the th anniversary of Tesla's birth.
