H. P. Blavatsky on Precipitation and Other Matters

[The following is the greater part of a letter written by H. P. Blavatsky some years ago at a time when, subsequent to the Psychical Research Society’s Report on Theosophical phenomena, not only the public but fellow members of the Society were doubting her, doubting themselves, doubting the Adepts. Its publication now will throw upon her character a light not otherwise obtainable. Written to an intimate and old friend for his information and benefit, it bears all the indicia of being out of the heart from one old friend to another. Those who have faith in her and in the Masters behind her will gain benefit and knowledge from its perusal.] Now what you advise me to do, I have for the last three or four years attempted most seriously.

1990: The Influence of Vedic Philosophy on Teslas understanding of Free Energy

By Toby Grotz “The first thing to realize about the ether is its absolute continuity. A deep-sea fish has probably no means of apprehending the existence of water; it is too uniformly immersed in it: and that is our condition in regard to the ether.” – Sir Oliver Lodge, Ether and Reality.   Abstract Nikola Tesla used ancient Sanskrit terminology in his descriptions of natural phenomena. As early as 1891 Tesla described the universe as a kinetic system filled with energy which could be harnessed at any location.
