This is the transcript of an extended three day interview of Nikola Tesla conducted by his legal counsel in 1916 in preparation for expert testimony in impending radio patent cases.  In an account that was never intended for publication, Tesla describes his pioneering investigations into the nature of alternating currents as applied to wireless transmission.  In a style uniquely his own, he carefully traces his work from the first high frequency alternators that were constructed at his Grand Street laboratory in New York City, and their associated tuned circuits through the establishment of his huge broadcasting facility, the mighty Wardenclyffe Plant, located at Shoreham, Long Island.  Among the variety of topics discussed are: high frequency alternators, experiments with wireless telegraphy and telephony, mechanical and electrical oscillators, the Colorado experiments, theory and technique of energy transmission, the Long Island plant, and arrangements for receiving.  The previously untold story found within the pages of this remarkable book has been described by the prominent Tesla researcher James Corum as a "veritable Rosetta stone" for tracing the technical thoughts of one of our most distinguished engineering scientists.

In this, the third book of the Tesla Presents Series, engineer-historian Leland Anderson provides the transcript of the 1902 U.S. Patent Interference investigation concerning Tesla's System of Signaling.  The document, "Nikola Tesla vs. Reginald A. Fessenden," which is no longer on file at the U.S. Patent Office, contains Tesla's own depositions as well as those of his closest and most trusted associates, George Scherff and Fritz Lowenstein.  Included is material on the history of radio-controlled devices, the first practical form of these being Tesla's radio-controlled "telautomaton" ? an operational boat first demonstrated to the public at Madison Square Garden in 1898. In addition to describing Tesla's "individualization" techniques for obtaining secure noninterferable radio communications?the patent is today recognized as the fundamental AND logic gate, a critical element of every digital computer?the interference record also reveals that essential features of the spread-spectrum telecommunications techniques known as frequency-hopping and frequency-division multiplexing have their roots in the resulting patents. Furthermore, there are new disclosures by Tesla on the operation of his large high voltage radio-frequency oscillators at both the Houston Street laboratory and the Colorado experimental station. Rarely in the history of science do we encounter such opportunities to gain deep insight into the fundamental ideas and concepts of an esteemed scientist/inventor.

In the 1930s the unorthodox inventor Nikola Tesla announced to the world a pair of novel inventions.  The first was "teleforce," a particle-beam projector which Tesla intended to be used as an instrument of national defense. A year later, in 1935, Tesla claimed a method of transmitting mechanical energy with minimal loss over any terrestrial distance, providing a new means of communication and a technique for the location of subterranean mineral deposits. He called this system for mechanical power transmission "telegeodynamics." Here, these two important papers, hidden for more than 60 years, are presented for the first time. The underlying principles behind teleforce and telegeodynamics are fully addressed.  In addition to copies of the original documents, typed on Tesla's official stationery, this work also includes two Reader's Aid sections providing guidance through the more technical aspects of each paper.  The actual texts are followed by Commentary sections which provide historical background and functional explanations of the two devices.  Significant newspaper articles and headline accounts are provided to document the first mention of these proposals. A large Appendix provides a wealth of related material and background information, followed by a Bibliography section and Index.

One hundred years ago, scientist/inventor/philospher John Keely built various devices that were able to overcome gravity, tunnel through rock using a hend-held device, use acoustics to power engines, and create superconductivity by using wires made of gold, silver and platinum. Almost lost, this book compiles ten years of research by the editor/author that explains the technology used. Understandable to the laymen and useful to the most advanced researcher, the physics of sympathetic vibrations is the unification of many different scientific, engineering and philosophical disciplines into a new paradigm. This science demonstrates the commonality that underlies all phenomena vibration! This book will be fascinating to both laymen and the most advanced scientists. Maybe you will be the one to be able to duplicate some of the incredible machines that John Keely developed which were all but lost for a hundred years. This monumental work contains the mathematics and basic principles which can usher in a new awareness as well as new sources of energy.

From the Author
This book contains a vast collection of material on Keely and his work. In it has been included all the pictures and charts known to exist as of this date. I have also included all that we have been able to decipher of this wonderful new science and philosophy. There will be more discoveries and these will be published at a later date. The discoveries mentioned here demonstrate that Keely's science of Sympathetic Vibratory Physics is a wholistic approach to science and nature and reveals a wonderful order and simplicity. It is hoped readers will find a number of ideas and methods in these pages which they can apply to their current scientific work and research.

Following Nikola Tesla On His Work With Alternating Currents. This book is the second in the four part Tesla Presents series containing previously unavailable material on the pioneering work of Nikola Tesla in field of radio frequency electrical engineering. While first delivered under the title "On the Streams of Lenard and Roentgen with Novel Apparatus for Their Use" the information presented in the lecture goes far beyond this topic. In addition to his opening remarks on X-ray discovery, a major portion of Tesla's commentary deals with the high power radio-frequency resonant power supplies of his own design, used in conjunction with his work. There are also clear descriptions of electro-mechanical stroboscopic instruments that Tesla designed for the measurement of frequency and phase.  Other topics include wireless receiving methods and the genesis of Tesla's 1937 particle beam tube.  During the talk Tesla had displayed approximately 120 drawings of specially constructed vacuum tubes, many being of the Lenard type and also the single-electrode type of his own design.  Among the drawings are tubes used in his wireless communications experiments. Enhanced photographs of these images are among the 32 illustrations which fill out this fine addition to the Tesla cannon.

Everything You Know is Wrong. By Nikola Tesla (1919), edited by Trinkaus. In Nikola Tesla's own words and in 20 illustrations, this is the inventor's final published statement on how radio, at the radical, really works. What is the true wireless? Tesla says the orthodox Hertzian radio we've been taught is a "fiction." He insists that the amount of energy that can be transmitted is "billions of times greater" than conventional radio would allow. Can we transmit electric power to our homes and workplaces without wires? Can the unsightly and fragile grid come down? Tesla says Yes. This article of 1919 has been completely reset and redesigned for clarity. Includes an introduction by Trinkaus, explanatory notes, and information sources. 21 illustrations.

"Tesla's final published statement on how radio really works... Tesla says the Hertzian radio we've been taught is "fiction." He insists that the amount of energy that can be transmitted is "billions of times greater" than conventional radio allows. Can we transmit power to homes/workplaces without wires to be free of the grid? Tesla?s convinced!" - TeslaTech

When we speak of man, we have a conception of humanity as a whole, and before applying scientific methods to the investigation of his movement, we must accept this as a physical fact. But can any one doubt to-day that all the millions of individuals and all innumerable types and characters constitute an entirety, a unit? Though free to think and act, we are held together, like the stars in the firmament; with ties inseparable. These ties we cannot see, but we can feel them. I cut myself in the finger, and it pains me: this finger is a part of me. I see a friend hurt, and it hurts me, too: my friend and I are one. And now I see stricken down an enemy, a lump of matter which, of all the lumps of matter in the universe, I care least for, and still it grieves me. Does this not prove that each of us is only a part of a whole?


Of all the endless variety of phenomena which nature presents to our senses, there is none that fills our minds with greater wonder than that inconceivably complex movement which, in its entirety, we designate as human life. Its mysterious origin is veiled in the forever impenetrable mist of the past, its character is rendered incomprehensible by its infinite intricacy, and its destination is hidden in the unfathomable depths of the future. Whence does it come? What is it? Whither does it tend? are the great questions which the sages of all times have endeavored to answer.

Modern science says: The sun is the past, the earth is the present, the moon is the future. From an incandescent mass we have originated, and into frozen mass we shall turn. Merciless is the law of nature, and rapidly and irresistibly we are drawn to our doom. Lord Kelvin, in his profound meditations, allows us only a short span of life, something like six million years, after which time the sun?s bright light will have ceased to shine, and its life-giving heat will be a lump of ice, hurrying on through the eternal night. But so not let us despair. There will still be left on it a glimmering spark of life, and there will be a chance to kindle a new fire on some distant star. This wonderful possibility seems, indeed, to exist, judging from Professor Dewar's beautiful experiments with liquid air, which show that germs of organic life are not destroyed by cold, no matter how intense; consequently they may be transmitted through the interstellar space. Meanwhile the cheering lights of science and art, ever increasing in intensity, illuminate our path, and the marvels they disclose, and the enjoyments they offer, make us measurably forgetful of the gloomy future.
