2016: Nikola Tesla: Wisdom from the Past, or Visions of the Future?

A biography of Tesla and an expose of HAARP, a US government project which may have been inspired by Tesla’s work. by Theresa Welsh Genius From 100 Years Ago Alternate History Buffs and conspiracy mavens are often drawn to the work and ideas of Nikola Tesla. I had only a hazy idea of Tesla’s accomplishments until I found a copy of Margaret Cheney’s biography of him in my local used book store (Tesla: Man Out of Time, published in 1981 in hardcover, released in 1993 in a paperback version and re-released in 2001). Tesla did his most productive work before 1900, but continued regaling the press with intimations of incredible inventions right into the late 1930s. He died in January of 1943, a frail old man of 87 whose inventions had truly changed the world, but without the recognition or the wealth that his contributions would seem to merit. […] Read More

1948: Edison Worked on a Spirit Phone to Record Voices of the Dead

A long-lost chapter of the memoir of Thomas Edison has been found and published in France and it contains details of the great inventor’s plans to build a device to record the voices of the newly departed. Edison’s original memoir is called “Diary And Sundry Observations” and was published in 1948, 16 years after his death. The first edition of the book contained the last chapter called “Spiritualism,” a collection of essays in which Edison talks about his beliefs in an afterlife and a way to communicate with the dead. I believe, rightly or wrongly, that life is undestructable … I am inclined to believe that our personality hereafter will be able to affect matter. If this reasoning be correct, then, if we can evolve an instrument so delicate as to be affected, or moved, or manipulated – whichever term you want to use – by our personality as […] Read More

1999: NIKOLA TESLA — ERASED AT THE SMITHSONIAN

This author and group is unknown the original photos have been lost anybody with more info let us know Revised August 14, 1999 NIKOLA TESLA HIS NAME MARKS AN EPOCH IN ELECTRICAL SCIENCE TESLA EXPERIMENTING WITH ELECTRICITY IN 1899 AND AS A YOUNG MAN IN 1882 In 1882 he made the discovery that changed the world–harnessing the awesome power of Alternating Current. In 1888 he obtained U.S. patents covering an entire system of polyphase AC that remains unchanged in principle today. He promptly sold all of his patents to George Westinghouse, an acquisition that made the Westinghouse Company the giant it is today. Westinghouse and Tesla were consummate friends, but after Westinghouse died in 1913, the company forgot about its chief benefactor and Tesla fell victim to hard times. Tesla died January 7, 1943, alone, and all but forgotten, in a New York hotel room, paid for by a […] Read More

2013: The Ghost Box

What are ghost boxes? How does the ghost box work? [PSN] – The argument has been made that Thomas Edison was working on a ghost communication device — a ghost box of sorts, to contact the dead. However, there are many Edison experts that would argue that it was only legend, a myth that is untrue. They will point out that he neither believed in the afterlife nor did he believe spirits and ghosts could be contacted through an electronic device. Whatever the truth behind Edison, one has to believe it makes a good story and backdrop to the ghost box. Even more intriguing, some today claim they are in contact with Thomas Edison via the ghost box, but many respected researchers of the latest ghost box technology have yet to make contact with the famous, dead inventor. That brings us to the latest development of the ghost box. […] Read More

1994: The Complete Patents of Nikola Tesla

Edited by Jim Glenn ( This is a Must Have Book for Inventors ! ) — Tommy C — Barnes & Noble Books – New York ISBN 1–56619–266–8 © 1994 by Barnes & Noble Inc. Nikola Tesla’s Automobile   Nikola Tesla, the “man who invented the twentieth century,” was born July 10, 1856, at Smiljan, Lika province (in modern Croatia), a part of the expiring Empire of Austro–Hungary. His father, Rev. Milutin Tesla of the Serbian Orthodox Church, intended Nikola for the priesthood, but did not insist–it must have been hard to make demands of the high–strung, fragile youth who was his son. On Nikola’s evidence we know his mother, Duka Mandic, to have been an inventor, a maker of tools and devices for her weaving, carpentry, and other handiwork. As a child Nikola manifested a full share of Duka’s ingenuity, building among other things a bug–propelled engine. Much […] Read More

2002: Tesla: Electricity’s Mastermind

This mystical friend of Swami Vivekananda invented much of our modern electrical system, the radio, X-ray photographs, remote-controlled devices and more By Mark Hawthorne, California Nikola Tesla is not as famous as his contemporary, Thomas Edison, but his inventions brought the world into our modern age. Born in what is now Yugoslavia in 1856, Tesla was a brilliant student who demonstrated an early knack for inventing. After reading the works of physicist and spiritualist Sir William Crookes, he decided upon a career in electronics. That career would give the world some of its most important developments in science and technology: wireless communication, the alternating current motor, fluorescent lights and the AC electrical-distribution system used throughout the world. Tesla popularized alternating current and invented the Tesla Coil, which makes the high voltage that drives the picture tube (CRT) in your computer, and ultimately received proper credit for inventing the radio, […] Read More

1999: Free energy? No utility bills?

It could have been if Nikola Tesla had had his way.   Who was Tesla?  You probably know because you’re reading The Hollow Earth Insider.  But for those who don’t, he was the inventor and genius who blaster the path that electrical development has followed and continues to follow until this day. Every elementary school student in America learned about Thomas Edison and his most important invention, the electric light bulb.  However little is taught about Nikola Tesla who developed the AC (alternate current) electrical system that carried electrical service across America and most of the world.  At the time, Edison was trying to sell the world his inferior DC (direct current) system that required a generator station every 200 yards.  Tesla’s superior system could be carried over many miles of wire.  Of course, Edison would have made more money selling a generator system to be placed every 200 yards.  […] Read More
