Throughout space there is energy. … it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature.
Nikola Tesla, born 10 July 1856, Sun in Cancer, Moon in Libra, Ascendant in Taurus.
This planet, with all its appalling immensity, is to electric currents virtually no more than a small metal ball.
The individual is ephemeral, races and nations come and pass away, but man remains.
Within a few years a simple and inexpensive device, readily carried about, will enable one to receive on land or sea the principal news, to hear a speech, a lecture, a song or play of a musical instrument, conveyed from any other region of the globe. (1905)
All that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combated, suppressed — only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle.
What I wanted to know is: what happens to a falling star and the sun that goes out? Stars fall like dust or seeds in this or other worlds, and the sun spreads in our minds, in the lives of many creatures, in what it will be reborn as new light, or the cosmic wind spreads in the infinite universe. I understand that it is necessary and it is included in the structure of the universe. The fact is, though, that one of these stars and one of these suns, even the smallest, are saved.
[There is a disease, which] cannot be completely cured, but awareness of it will make it less difficult and dangerous. Whenever one of my near and dear people were hurt, I felt physical pain. This is because our bodies are made from a similar material, and our souls are related with unbreakable wires. The incomprehensible sadness that sometimes overwhelmed us means that somewhere on the other side on this planet, a child or generous man died. In some periods the entire universe is tired of itself and of us. Disappearance of a star and the appearance of comets will affect us more than we can imagine. The relationships among the creatures on Earth are even stronger, because of our feelings and thoughts the flower will scent even more beautiful or will fall in silence. We must learn this truth in order to be healed. Remedy is in our hearts and in the heart of the animal that we call the universe.
