Tesla Meets Willy Wonka

Extremely Rare photos (retouched with color for effect)...Rare sound - electromagnetic radio waves were recently captured digitally - It's the historical meeting between Tesla and Willy Wonka - just before the fire at Tesla's Wardenclyffe plant.

Listen to this rare audio of factory sounds from their experiments in the production of electromagnetic sonic candy.

Our Field Trip to Wardenclyffe

Photo 1: Currents of Power. Photos 2 & 3: E Power Generators. Needless to say, our field trip radiated with lights and sounds from Tesla's industrial plant....

Neighbors Fired Up About Tesla's Experiments!

Neighbors reported Tuesday night that they will not tolerate nightly fireworks from Tesla's plant headquarters in Long Island. Listen closely for a brief recording of Nikola commenting to an unidentified worker about the sparks emitting from several misfires within his generators.

Tesla: "My Friend, Samuel"

Mark Twain in Tesla's laboratory.

"I had hardly completed my course at the Real Gymnasium when I was prostrated with a dangerous illness or rather, a score of them, and my condition became so desperate that I was given up by physicians. During this period I was permitted to read constantly, obtaining books from the Public Library which had been neglected and entrusted to me for classification of the works and preparation of the catalogues. One day I was handed a few volumes of new literature unlike anything I had ever read before and so captivating as to make me utterly forget my hopeless state. They were the earlier works of Mark Twain and to them might have been due the miraculous recovery which followed. Twenty-five years later, when I met Mr. Clemens and we formed a friendship between us, I told him of the experience and was amazed to see that great man of laughter burst into tears.''

Nikola Tesla, "My Inventions: the autobiography of Nikola Tesla", Hart Bros., 1982. Originally appeared in the Electrical experimenter magazine in 1919.

Seashells by the Ear Shore

Ray Bradbury, author and inventor, presents the binaural seashell earphones - take them everywhere, anywhere - Here's one happy customer's experience -

"Mildred wears two of them; none of that painful reality stuff for her....
The little mosquito-delicate dancing hum in the air, the electrical murmur of a hidden wasp snug in its special pink warm nest. The music was almost loud enough so he could follow the tune. Without turning on the light he imagined how this room would look. His wife stretched on the bed, uncovered and cold, like a body displayed on the lid of the tomb, her eyes fixed in the ceiling by invisible threads of steel, immovable. And in her ears the little Seashells, the thimble radios tamped tight, and an electronic ocean of sound, of music and talk and music and talk coming in, coming in on the shore of her unsleeping mind. The room was indeed empty. Every night the waves came in and bore her off on their great tides of sound, floating her, wide-eyed, toward morning. There had been no night in the last two years that Mildred had not swum that sea, had not gladly gone down in it for the third time."

Global Transmission On the Horizon

Moment In History: 1909

Telsa says "current waves" are the answer to wireless transmission of energy.

"From my circuit you can get either electromagnetic waves, 90 percent of electromagnetic waves if you like, and 10 percent in the current energy that passes through the earth. Or, you can reverse the process and get 10 percent of the energy in electromagnetic waves and 90 percent in energy of the current that passes through the earth.

"It is just like this: I have invented a knife. The knife can cut with the sharp edge. I tell the man who applies my invention, you must cut with the sharp edge. I know perfectly well you can cut butter with the blunt edge, but my knife is not intended for this. You must not make the antenna give off 90 percent in electromagnetic and 10 percent in current waves, because the electromagnetic waves are lost by the time you are a few arcs around the planet, while the current travels to the uttermost distance of the globe and can be recovered." - courtesy of the Future BBC.
