We have had many posts on Tesla in the past
so now we have a future.

what we dont hear much about is tesla's hypersensivity to magnetic fields. he was the first person diagnosed with this affliction.

I've never heard of "tesla's hypersensivity to magnetic fields."
But I wouldn't be surprised.
Do you have any links?
I did some web searching and looked through Seifer's biography of Tesla, but found nothing. Seifer does describe Tesla's experiments with X-rays...eg. exposing his head to X-rays for long periods, until he began to feel a kind of "lassitude", etc......

lassitude?

Quote:During his early life, Tesla was stricken with illness time and time again. He suffered a peculiar affliction in which blinding flashes of light would appear before his eyes, often accompanied by hallucinations. Much of the time the visions were linked to a word or idea he might come across; just by hearing the name of an item, he would involuntarily envision it in realistic detail. Nikola had visions all of his life. He would create, as a youngster, whole worlds which he would visit. He would talk to the people, etc. who were as real to him as real life. When he got older and became an inventor he would envision, build and test complete machines in his mind. So accurate were his visions he could even sense if his machines were out of balance. Because of these visions he didn't build actual models, which are called prototypes, for testing his machines because he did it all in his head. He claimed that his visions were so accurate that after twenty years of testing, in his mind, he never had to change a prototype. They always worked as he envisioned.

Quote:In my boyhood I suffered from a peculiar affliction due to the appearance of images, often accompanied by strong flashes of light, which marred the sight of real objects and interfered with my thought and action. They were pictures of things and scenes which I had really seen, never of those I imagined. When a word was spoken to me the image of the object it designated would present itself vividly to my vision and sometimes I was quite unable to distinguish whether what I saw was tangible or not. This caused me great discomfort and anxiety…

Then I instinctively commenced to make excursions beyond the limits of the small world of which I had knowledge, and I saw new scenes. These were at first very blurred and indistinct, and would flit away when I tried to concentrate my attention upon them, but by and by I succeeded in fixing them; they gained in strength and distinctness and finally assumed the concreteness of real things. I soon discovered that my best comfort was attained if I simply went on in my vision farther and farther, getting new impressions all the time, and so I began to travel—of course, in my mind. Every night (and sometimes during the day), when alone, I would start on my journeys—see new places, cities and countries—live there, meet people and make friendships and acquaintances and, however unbelievable, it is a fact that they were just as clear to me as those in actual life and not a bit less intense in their manifestations

Too many X-rays Whistle ..."anomalies"...possibly related to the 90 min. day/night cycle in LEO, and even a perceived tendency of astronauts to exhibit "renegade behavior" ???

You can modify a barbecue igniter switch to emit an open 50KV spark.
You can deliver  piezoelectric discharges to any point on the skin.
You can open Electro-puncture Clinics and make $$$ millions.

Kinda. But without the sores on face and lips.
Too bad, to see any person fall into that stuff, but particularly poignant to see the shinning eyes go from being full of happiness to such shame and sorrow.

I posted that before/after pair of Astro/Lisa Nowak to show we're entering Unknown Territory.

Yes...she looks like a crackhead, but we have to know...and from what I've read between the lines...there is evidence of a network of space travelers who have been "coping" with extreme job demands by relying on some tried and true remedies.

What causes major stress levels experienced in outer space?
Is it mainly the result of disruptions in the circadian rhythm...
...or is it due to cosmic ray damage to brain cells?

I think you're looking at the behavior of a human guinea pig.

I suspect there's a much deeper story in the Nowak case.

[Image: ht_nowak_070731_mn.jpg]

Now...OK...say she had a connection through a military source (eg. they use speed during prolonged missions)...you're still looking at a highly trained, intelligent astronaut and navy pilot who's been in space...maaaybe has heard "stories......even "seen things" in orbit.
The story seems to trail off into tabloid fare.......but who knows??? <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/hmm2.gif" alt="Hmm2" title="hmm2" />
I have to think a hypothetical network of astronauts would likely also hold to views at odds with The Agency...on many subjects...on an "official" level......

Didn't recognize her as an astronaut.
Still looks like the egg has been rather badly cracked somewhere along the line.

Whistle I was getting around to that......

There has always been a supposed link between eccentricity and genius (see Art & Madness"... viewtopic.php?f=6&t=9492&start=0&hilit=Art+and+Madness )

A lot of people fixate on Tesla's "obsessional" behaviors as a way of excusing their own ignorance. The insinuation is that Tesla suffered from a mild form of Howard Hughes Syndrome......maybe even "restless leg" <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/uhoh.gif" alt="Uhoh" title="uhoh" />
At best, Tesla's demonstrations are mere parlor entertainment.

Likewise...people are comfortable judging Lisa Nowak in terms of violations of their own box-dwelling sense of "normalcy".
Look...Lisa Nowak was subject to regular physical and mental evaluation.
Now...either her doctors were derelict in their duty...OR...there is a confidentially recognized crude etiology of "space sickness", for lack of a more precise term. And so, her obvious physical transformations were checked off the list as "expected mutations",
thus making her "fit for duty".

Kaulter,

the word 'invoke' conotates that there is a 'will' involved. This is a great point - where there is a will there is a way.......

I will look into the book, thank you.


Many angles are involved in the current stream of data that is flowing, it can be difficult , for me at least, to keep them untangled. As Alanis puts it so nicely in her Flavors of Entanglement album.

Seems to me that keeping a thread dedicated to Tesla is like catching lightning in a bottle.

Wook...OK......I share your frustration, having seen so many Tesla threads go nowhere.
I'm more into a nuts & bolts approach, but I also recognize that Tesla has become a romantic icon...like a character from Jules Verne.
I think most people throw up their hands, "Well...if Tesla was so smart then how come we're not basking in Utopia?"

...or the subject devolves into murky conspiracy theories.

Here's a simple experiment......
Everyone's played with string telephones.
OK?
You can go down to Radio Shack and pick up 2 piezoelectric disks and wire them in almost the same way as a string telephone and get the same effect.
Now...what if these 2 disks were fed a strong signal at their resonant frequency?
It's possible to initiate runaway electronic feedback.
The result might be the simultaneous shattering of the piezo disks.
Tesla stated that he could "rend the world asunder" through feedback of a
frequency with a wavelength equal to the diameter of the Earth (4->7 Hz(?)).

Thats a very interesting thought, you would need a huge amount of energy though to do such a thing, but if you were able to, would that make the planet break up or more shatter in an explosion?

No...you would not need much energy......
The key is to deliver the same pulse at the precise time the reflection arrives at the receiver.
The amplitude of the pulse only determines the time to the desired result.
For instance, Tesla experimented with tiny clockwork oscillators attached to building girders.
Within an hour, skyscrapers were trembling close to destruction.

I see neither a reason to throw your hands up in frustration nor a reason for murky conspiracy theories, direct me to why i am uninformed if need be, but I thought it was recorded fact that J.P. Morgan among others simply did not want to invest capital in going down that road.

Fact of research life that leads to such corruption of science in our world: 'It takes money to do research, no money, no discovery.'

I am not completely sure on this, but the reason I said you would need the energy is because wouldnt the wave be absorbed by the Earth's surface? You would have to have the thing travel through the planet would you not? otherwise it wouldnt acheive the effect.

At this point in time I am thinking, "How to destroy planets 101."
