Nikola Tesla 28 December 05

As we say in “the Super Black World of…”©, “real recognizes real”

This player card that I have stuck to my forehead belongs to a man who should be recognized world wide…but isn’t. I don’t know how much education I would need (many people I ask have no idea who Tesla was beyond, “didn’t he do something with radio”) to truly learn about this man’s work, but for some reason his contribution to the world is hidden in plain sight (“things that make you go hmmm?” © C&C Music Factory).

So what…what is there to know of this Tesla guy, you ask?
Well here’s a list of some of his inventions:

* The polyphase induction motor
* The hydroelectric generator
* Radio
* X-Rays
* Vacuum tubes
* Fluorescent lights
* Microwaves
* Radar
* AC power (both 2-phase and 3-phase)
* Broadcast power
* The rotary engine

For those of you still in, “yeah so” mode, please leave this page…you’re troubled and hopeless there are plenty of other places for you in cyberspace…PICK A SPOT, DON’T COME BACK IN HERE.

Anyways, from the a/c current allowing you to read this info, to x-rays and wireless technology Tesla was experimenting with, discovering, patenting, selling or being robbed of these technologies at the turn of the 20th Century.

Simply put the man had a vision…electricity would be the connection between the past and the present. Bringing a new spin to the familiar “Let there be light”, Tesla realized that he could power remote spaces wirelessly using the earth as a conductor.

Telsa also realized that his inventions would be explored and utilized first and foremost as weapons before they would be used as tools of humanitarian aid, increasing the quality of life.

Tesla made a lot of men rich (Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse among them), and died destitute!!!!

I recognize Nikola Tesla as a genius, chewed up and spit out.

I for one cannot even begin to understand the scope of knowledge and science that this man worked in, but I can appreciate his aspirations, his contributions to all of humanity, and I overstand his victimization in a society that seemingly puts human rights behind property rights.

Do yourself a favor, do your own research on Nikola Tesla…make his name a part of your small talk as well as a part of your own dreams and aspirations.

Nikola, thank you for bringing divine light to “the Super Black World of…” ©

  1. d-did you have a chance to check out the film vingette that jim jarmusch did on tesla in “coffee and cigarettes”??

    another homanage……

  2. I missed that film, along with “broken flowers” also directed by Jarmusch starring Bill Murray and your D.C. native/homeboy Jefferey Wright (a monster of an actor).

    what is the jist of the vignette? or should I just rent it/download it?

  3. oh mos def rent it!!!!

    the tesla peice is illuminating….

    there is another hilarious vignette with the rza and another wu-tang claner and bill murray called “dilirium” too funny…..

  4. well…I just saw Coffee and Cigarettes.

    2 words: ART FILM.

    I did enjoy the Nikola Tesla scenes. the first with Detroit’s own Jack & Meg White of “the White Stripes”. Jack’s monologue about Tesla is almost verbatim my own, ever since I was prompted to do some research on him.

    After talking with a friend for weeks about electric cars (this past summer…when gas prices crossed the $3 mark in California), I just so happened to run across a fellow in my neighbor hood who actually had the Ford EV Think Mobile.
    link:

    I’d seen the car driving around the neighborhood, and I’d also seen it plugged in (in what was the guys “Mark” driveway), and was definately a fan.

    With the arrival of oilman and president of the united states of america George W. Bush’s first term, it seemed that Ford Motor Co. SUDDENLY decided to pull the plug on it’s electric vehicle program.

    Choosing to focus on the still fossil fuel dependant “hybrid” program, the annoucement was made that ownership of the EV’s would not be an option, and that the vehicles would be repossesed by the dealerships and ALL of the vehicles subsequently crushed.

    I asked my neighbor (Mark) what the ultimate reasoning behind the repo/crushing and he said that the cars weren’t deemed safe because they weren’t equipped with passenger side airbags.

    The jury is still out on why the programs were scrapped by both Ford and GM. Yes ,the beginning of the 21st century and the end of the 20th saw Amercian consumers in love with gas guzzling SUV’s, so popularity at the time trumped practicality…,but why the programs haven’t been revived, since the technology already exists and would be optimal at this point in our global struggle with dependence on fossil fuel and our love of car culture.

    Perhaps Tesla will get the last laugh.

    Supposedly Tesla went to a car manufacturer (which one is uncertain) and requested an automobile to modify with one of his inventions…that would make obsolete the oil based engine…

    oh here’s an excerpt:

    “At the appointed time, Nikola Tesla arrived from New York City and inspected the Pierce-Arrow automobile. He then went to a local radio store and purchased a handful of tubes (12), wires and assorted resistors. A box measuring 24 inches long, 12 inches wide and 6 inches high was assembled housing the circuit. The box was placed on the front seat and had its wires connected to the air-cooled, brushless motor. Two rods 1/4″ in diameter stuck out of the box about 3” in length.

    Mr. Tesla got into the driver’s seat, pushed the two rods in and stated, “We now have power”. He put the car into gear and it moved forward! This vehicle, powered by an A.C. motor, was driven to speeds of 90 m.p.h. and performed better than any internal combustion engine of its day! One week was spent testing the vehicle. Several newspapers in Buffalo reported this test. When asked where the power came from, Tesla replied, “From the ethers all around us”. Several people suggested that Tesla was mad and somehow in league with sinister forces of the universe. He became incensed, removed his mysterious box from the vehicle and returned to his laboratory in New York City. His secret died with him!

    It is speculated that Nikola Tesla was able to somehow harness the earth’s magnetic field that encompasses our planet. And, he somehow was able to draw tremendous amounts of power by cutting these lines of force or causing them to be multiplied together. The exact nature of his device remains a mystery but it did actually function by powering the 80 h.p. A.C. motor in the Pierce-Arrow at speeds up to 90 m.p.h. and no recharging was ever necessary!”

    and here is a link of the article:

    or maybe he won’t…

    I could go on and on about the faith and energy that the masses put into individuals and organizations who’s sole objective is to maintain dominance and control over the individual spirit and the human collective.

    This is my blog.

    I will.

    If you can hang out and enjoy, or better yet share some info…

    by all means

    And for the record…this information is not proof to be bitter, this information is proof that there is hope and ideas continually happening to maintain the better of all creation.
