How Greed Slowed Our Evolution: The Tesla Story
Having grown up in the capitalist nation of the United States, I am sure it is difficult to imagine that having money or doing a job for the sake of earning more could somehow slow down the process of evolution. We are programmed to think otherwise. Well. . . in fact it has! I did a little research so you don’t necessarily have to. Thank me later. For now, let me explain. The high school I attended, if history had got it right, should have been called “Jardine Telsa Junior Academy” as opposed to an “Edison” academy. “Tesla”, of course, from the man who possessed one of the greatest minds to ever walk on the surface of this planet. Nikola Tesla’s time is now!
Tesla was the genius at the forefront of making AC (alternating current) electricity an important part of our lives. He rivaled his fellow inventor, Thomas Edison’s DC electricity. As you read in the story on this matter, it was more of a one-sided rivalry. A humble man at Tesla, whose main goal in life was to harness the natural energy of the Earth by harnessing the appropriate frequencies (Wardenclyffe Tower). By doing so, you could generate free / sustainable energy to supply the entire world! A madman driven by greed, in Edison, whose only goal was fame and fortune. That I would keep at any cost. Thomas Edison would go as far as killing large animals, in front of crowds, as propaganda. He once fried an elephant in an attempt to prove that Tesla’s AC electricity was too dangerous. The most disgusting of all his smear campaigns was the execution of William Kemmler (First death by electric chair). Which was basically an experiment to show what AC electricity would do to a human. In the hope that you will consider your conclusions about alternating currents as fact. Thomas Edison knew the genius of Tesla and his humble nature. Being the opportunist that he was, Edison made the most of it. Hiring Tesla (years before the smear campaigns) to repair the motors that powered his version of DC electricity. Tesla was told they would pay him $ 50,000 if he could fix the motors at the Edison plant. After Tesla successfully completed the job, Edison told him that it was just a joke and that he would not pay him the money. Which led to the inevitable resignation of Nikola Tesla from Edison’s company.
Edison was known for stealing Tesla’s ideas among many others and passing them off as his own. I. and X-ray images. Mr. Edison, in retrospect, looked like some kind of proprietary prostitute. He had an understanding of idea patents that far surpassed his counterparts. Which allowed him to hire some of the brightest minds of his time, just to patent HIS inventions. Thomas Edison was not alone when it came to harnessing Tesla’s caring soul. Shortly after parting ways with Edison’s company, a couple of investors approached him. Alfred S. Brown (West Union leader) and Charles Peck (New York attorney). The two men believed in Tesla’s AC electric current and wanted to finance “Tesla Electric Company”. Which you would get ownership of after agreeing to split half your patent rights for your air conditioning system. In exchange for financing. This is your second chance at your own power company. The first company was “Tesla Electric Light Company”, from which he was eventually forced to leave. He was left with nothing but a worthless stock certificate. Do you see a pattern yet?
Nikola was finally becoming the successful businessman he wanted to be. It seemed. He eventually sold his patent for his AC motor to George Westinghouse for $ 25,000 in cash / $ 50,000 in notes + royalties. At this point (1890) Tesla was ready to move on to his next great invention, which was fueled by his discovery of “wireless power.” With his fame on the rise and his brand bigger than ever, that struck fear in his adversaries. Than the aforementioned smear campaigns. Which were also directed to Tesla’s partner, Westinghouse. On top of all the chaos plus the inability to find a better design for your current AC system. Westinghouse eventually withdrew. He pulled out of the Tesla project (financing) and somehow got Nikola to rebuild the contract that once paid him royalties ($ 2.50 per horsepower generated by each engine).
As the trend continued for Tesla to be a genius engineer but lacking the greed-driven nature to be a successful businessman. He would go on to invent or discover many of the greatest discoveries in science. Those who help us in daily life. Even in this generation. I believe he was so far ahead of his time that his discoveries will continue to help unleash the natural powers of this universe for years to come. Some of his most successful business ventures were “The Niagra Falls Power Co.” Unfortunately, his contributions are masked by the Westinghouse insignia. His best as his “Tesla Coil” But the one he never stopped seeing come to fruition and what became Nikola Tesla’s obsession in life, Wardenclyffe. The Tower that would take advantage of all the natural energy that circulates on our planet, to redistribute it as free energy. Simply redirecting the natural frequencies. The project received a large amount of funding in the beginning, but once JP Morgan (Main Funder) found out that it was being built to generate FREE electricity, it withdrew. If it couldn’t be measured for profit, it was of no use to a businessman. Only a good man would do the right thing for the betterment of humanity. JP Morgan and many other “businessmen” of that time were not that. Tower production eventually came to a halt and never regained momentum. After Tesla’s death, the FBI broke into his New York hotel suite and stole all of his work. Some believe that the Wardenclyffe Tower technology is known today as HAARP. The weather control program that uses frequency alteration to manipulate weather patterns.
If the point of this article was to inform you of all the wonderful things Nikola Tesla discovered, you might as well move on. The man was behind so many incredible projects. Some projects were so far ahead of their time that people like Steve Jobs had to finish them for him. I encourage you to Google it yourself. However, the main purpose of writing this article was to shed light on the idea that greed may be holding back our evolution. Imagine if funding never slowed Tesla down. How far would it have gone? Would we have outrageous energy bills like we have today? Imagine if all the other men who came up with cool inventions really got their fair share. Instead, they were overlooked because a better businessman beat them to the patent. I am sure this has happened repeatedly in history. Greed rears its ugly face. A true superhuman is almost out of the history books because he did not patent thousands of ideas that were not his own. How often did you hear about Edison as a child? History seems to favor those with the most money. Which is a sham in itself. The idea and purpose of money is to stay in control. Which in recent history has worked well for a certain 1%. For the rest of the great minds out there? We are forced to live lives that do not always allow us to take advantage of our own natural abilities. All for capitalism. It was fun while it lasted, but you can’t see that it’s time! We need a new monetary system. One that does not retain true genius.
