Here’s an interesting and enjoyable video on Nicola Tesla, perhaps the greatest American inventor of all times.
Tesla had the ability, not only to imagine all manner of undiscovered machinery right down to their molecular interactions; he could also induce his thought-formed machinery to run over time in his mind, to see where it might break down and what alterations needed to be made.
I believe it was in 1979 that Robert Leichtmann served as a channel for Nicola Tesla and Carl Japikse served as his interviewer, the results being published in their series, From Heaven to Earth. (1)
In that interview, Tesla said:
“The major thing I’d like to do in this interview is set down my philosophy of science and scientific investigation. I think the example of scientific investigation I set during my physical life was probably more important than any specific invention or development I was responsible for. That’s what I would like to inspire people to understand in this conversation.” (2)
Tesla revealed that he had “the capacity to grasp the fundamental essence of electricity and other phenomena and convert these theories and fundamental principles into concrete, practical devices and machines. This is a way of using the mind that is distressingly deficient in the modern scientific scene.” (3)
He confirmed a matter that I’ve always suspected, which may explain the simultaneous development of new inventions like the bow and arrow on different continents:
“The inspiration for new ideas comes from beyond the physical level of consciousness; the mind receives this inspiration and nurtures its physical unfoldment.” (4)
But “inspiration alone is not enough. The scientist must prepare himself by diligently studying all the known science of his day and age, filling his mind with facts and practical experience and mathematics. … The good scientist starts not with theories but with an awareness of the essence of life, and works from there.” (5)
Notice in the following passage how he identifies what we in Ascension circles call the Fifth Dimension as being what afterlife cartographers call the Mental Plane, something I’ve also long suspected.
“To deal effectively with ideas, the scientist needs to observe a variety of interrelated phenomena and extract from those observations the repeated patterns, principles, parallels, applications, and so on.
“In the process of observing these phenomena in this very practical, sensible, and rational way, it is possible for the mind of the scientist to ‘reach up’ and grab the very essence of the idea which is manifested through them. To grasp this essence, of course, he has to enter the plane of thoughts, the mental plane. To put this allegorically, he reaches out with two or three or ten ‘thought fingers’ and grasps this fifth-dimensional idea, which seems to be whirling in space with about 120 corners.” (6)
The scientist proceeding in this way investigates the principles of natural law. Tesla ‘humbly’ acknowledges that “I was able to work that [way] because I was a genius” and he encourages others to study his manner of thinking and approach to the scientific method – not to imitate him but to think “fifth-dimensionally.” (7) Note that this is allegedly the way we will all think after Ascension.
I want to mention only two other circumstances here: how Tesla would build a working model of an invention in his mind and how he spent his nights in a spirit university for inventors.
Teszla states that “I could build an invention in my mind. So there was no need to write down blueprints or diagrams. My own mental memory files were much more complete and efficient than written notes would be.” (8)
“[For instance,] when I discovered the principle for generating alternating current, I worked out all the details in my mind. I literally visualized the generators right out here [pointing at the air space at arm’s length in front of his face] and mentally built them, operated them, and refined them until the design worked. I even tested their efficiency – all in my mind.
“I could set them in operation and let them run in my mind for a week or a month and then dismantle them, to determine the site and degree of wear and tear.”(9)
Jumping over many other fascinating revelations about himself, such as what his main contribution to humanity was (a practical means of using electricity – that is, alternating current) and how he works these days at inspiring a few embodied geniuses, I only want to add that Tesla himself says he teaches astrally-projected scientists during their sleep – as he himself was taught.
“I teach in a sort of Electrical College on the inner planes. I instruct many people while they are out of their bodies at night. They do not remember this instruction consciously, but the information is placed in their minds, and, at the right time, they are able to use it.” (10)
“When I was in the physical, I was a student there myself and that too was part of my preparation. Every night for a long period of time I would leave my body while I was asleep and go to classes on the inner planes. I would participate in experiments in actual laboratories, attend lectures which would add to my understanding of the phenomena and principles of electricity, and then come back to earth and wake up.
“I often did not have an immediate recollection of what I had done, but I knew even then that I had an enriched ability to make sense of problems. I had answers to questions that had been on my mind the previous day. I had new perspectives, new solutions, and new projects to work on.” (11)
Back in 1979, Tesla was obliquely commenting on the arrival of the Golden Age and Ascension. Asked about the possibility of a planet shift, he said that it would not happen but that “the earth as a civilized community will continue to exist in great glory and there is no need to fear awesome destruction. That is not going to happen. … It has to do with the state of the evolution of humanity and civilization. ” (12)
Let me end with his chastisement of science. Having sacrificed two Ph.Ds to my own desire to write about a wider world, I chuckle each time I read this passage.
“Science is nearing the end of its frontier. Science believes that, if you can’t push it, knock it, shove it, or measure it, it just doesn’t exist. So it ignores most of life. Many scientists have exactly this kind of attitude. They are like people who used to believe the earth was flat. They need to accept the possibility that the universe goes on beyond their own limited view. Beyond their horizon, there are invisible realms of existence waiting to be explored. That’s where science needs to go!” (13)
As Tesla himself illustrates, far more valuable than a Ph.D. is the preservation of one’s ability to exit the black box of the prevailing paradigm and follow new paths of discovery wherever they lead.
