Enlightening Documentaries: Nikola Tesla – The Genius Who Lit the World

This is the documentary film about Nikola Tesla, the scientist and inventor, one of the greatest men in history. Nikola Tesla was born on July 10,1856 in Smiljan, Lika in what later became Yugoslavia. His father, Milutin Tesla was a Serbian orthodox priest and his mother Djuka Mandic was an inventor in her own right of household appliances. Tesla studied at the Polytechnic Institute in Graz, Austria and the University of Prague. He began his career as an electrical engineer with a telephone company in Budapest in 1881.

Before going to America, Tesla joined Continental Edison Company in Paris where he designed dynamos. While in Strassbourg in 1883, he privately built a prototype of the induction motor and ran it successfully. Unable to interest anyone in Europe in promoting this radical device Tesla accepted an offer to work for Thomas Edison in New York.

Young Nikola Tesla came to the United States in 1884. Tesla will spend the next 59 years of his productive life living in New York. Tesla set about improving line of dynamos while working in Edison’s lab in New Jersey. It was here that his divergence of opinion with Edison over direct current versus alternating current began. This disagreement climaxed in the Battle of Currents as Edison fought a losing battle to protect his investment in direct current equipment and facilities.


Direct current flows continuously in one direction; alternating current changes direction 50 or 60 times per second, and can be stepped up to very high voltage levels, minimizing power loss across great distances. The future belongs to the alternating current. Nikola Tesla developed polyphase alternating current system of generators, motors and transformers and held 40 basic U.S. patents on the system, which George Westinghouse bought, determined to supply America with Tesla system. In February 1882, Tesla discovered rotating magnetic field, a fundamental principle in physics and the basis of nearly all devices that use alternating current.

Tesla’s A-C induction motor is widely used throughout the world in industry and household appliances. This motor started the industrial revolution at he turn of the century. Electricity today is generated, transmitted and converted to mechanical power by means of his inventions. Tesla’s greatest achievement is his polyphase alternating current system, which is today lighting the entire globe.

    Thank you for sharing.

    A beautiful story about a man hidden from mainstream history.

    I highly recommend this documentary and would like to suggest the reading of his autobiography. If you have children, teach them everything you can about Nikola Tesla and Buckminster Fuller. They must surely be, without doubt, the two greatest inventors of the 20th Century.

    Yes – Any information regarding Tesla and his potential discoveries of free and limitless energy have been mostly suppressed by those who control the energy companies, and who wish to make huge profit from their constant rhetoric of scarcity.

    Imagine the possibility of tapping into nature and the atmosphere itself for free flowing electricity and wireless technology, without the need to bleed (Oil) and rape (Fracking) the body (Earth) which sustains us.

    But alas! I fear that Man’s ignorance and selfish ego will not allow him to see the wisdom of Tesla’s vision.

    Well, nothing but war, destruction of the planet, and excuses to hike up energy prices to look forward to then…bastards!

    In a dualistic world of balance, for every good man that exists, there must exist a bad man to guarantee a constant state of equilibrium 🙂

    LOL That’s one way of looking at it. The Occultists know very well how to condition the human mind with a dualistic paradigm, so to create conflict within and externally, whilst they insidiously carry out their enslaving agenda.

    If we want to liberate ourselves from the clutches of these Dark Occultists then we must all become alchemists of ourselves and embark on “The Great Work” upon our own minds and spirits. Hopefully though this “work” we can elevate our consciousness to become more spiritually enlightened and Holy, which is derived from the word wholly -> (w)Hol(l)y (which means one and not divided into two or more parts).

    As whole beings there should be no division or contradiction in our thoughts, feelings and actions. This is what the Masons have aspired to achieve in their order, and is why they have kept this knowledge only for the initiated. In their minds (especially the evil contingent in their fraternity) the profane cannot handle such knowledge and will not be easily manipulable to make as slaves if they attained such power.

    “Heed these words, You who wish to probe the depths of nature: If you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither will you find it outside. In you is hidden the treasure of treasures. Know Thyself and you will know the Universe and the Gods.” ~ Delphi Oracle

    Anyway, I’ll leave you with a simple but wise quote from Mark Passio regarding the suppression of Tesla’s vision and the monopolization of energy:

    “The control of energy ultimately means the control of people.”

    “As whole beings there should be no division or contradiction in our thoughts, feelings and actions.”

    And, no free will, either?

    If there exists a will to attain ONENESS, may I suggest the study of this work:

    THE LAW OF ONE

    I think free-will comes under action. You have the free-will to perform right action as long as it does not contravene natural law.

    But to be honest, you also have the free-will to perform any action you please, no matter how evil – that is why the world is in the state it’s in.

    In fact, by liberating ourselves from the external conditioning of ignorance and dependency we can then hope to instigate free-will towards thinking for ourselves (Thought), and embracing care, love and compassion (Feelings/Emotion) for the planet as a whole.

    So I think free-will probably relates to all three states (thoughts, emotion and actions) of wholeness, it just depends if you have the wisdom to use your free-will for the “Good” only.

    What do you think?

    As for The Law of ONE – this has already been put on my Kindle so will get to this in due course.

  7. Man says:

    “What do you think?”

    What you say does appear to be in accord with the principles of the Law of One.

    We, through the distortion of Free Will, have the choice to follow the path of Service to Self or the path of Service to Others. Hate, violence and greed tend to be on the Service to Self path. Love, compassion and sharing may be considered to be on the Service to Others path.

    If we wish to raise our self to a higher state of being, it is quite clear which path we will choose 🙂

  8. J Cooper says:

    “Service to Self” is not necessarily a path towards hate, violence and greed. The “Service to Others” path seems a somewhat altruistic way of living – rightly or wrongly.

    I think before one can be a service to others one must be a service to themselves first.

    However, I think we’ll both agree that being a “Servant of Truth” is perhaps the best path as that includes both the betterment of the self and others.

  9. Man says:

    As the olde saying goes… Truth is nothing but a four letter word!

    Love is the law. If we allow our self to be governed by love, every thing becomes possible 🙂
