System of Transmission of Electrical Energy SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 645,576, dated March 20, 1900. Application filed September 2, 1897. Serial No. 650,343. (No model.) To all whom it may concern: Be it known that I, NIKOLA TESLA, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful improvements in Systems of Transmission of Electrical Energy, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the drawing accompanying and forming a part of the same. It has been well known heretofore that by rarefying the air inclosed in a vessel its insulating properties are impaired to such an extent that it becomes what may be considered as a true conductor, although one of admittedly very high resistance.

Introduction And It Came to Pass And it came to pass, When men began to multiply on the face of the Earth The Secret Life of Nikola Tesla « Revolutionizing Awareness Posted by Admin on June 16, 2010 by Nikola Tesla Suppose some one should discover a new mechanical principle–something as fundamental as James Watt’s discovery of the expansive power of steam—by the use of which it became possible to build a motor that would give ten horse power for every pound of the engine’s weight, a motor so simple that the veriest novice in mechanics could construct it and so elemental that it could not possibly get out of repair. Then suppose that this motor could be run forward or backward at will, that it could be used as either an engine or a pump, that it cost almost nothing to build as compared with any other known form of engine, that it utilized a larger percentage of the available power than any existing machine, and, finally, that it would operate with gas, steam, compressed air or water, any one of them, as its driving power.
Plants Have Memories: The Spiritual Case Against Agricultural Manipulation The Lakota of North America have many stories about seeds and how to know when each plant is in its sacredness. One seed flowers during a spiritual window called the Timpsila Ttkahca Wi, or when the Moon of Timpsila (turnip) is ripe. If you were to prematurely dig for the plant, it will not grow into a full nutrient. If you're too late in collecting the flower top, it breaks aboveground, and fierce winds blow the top away, leaving no trace where the underground root is located.

Florida Mississippian Period Is there evidence that the Maya were in Georgia and Florida? If so, why were they there? Were they mining gold and shipping it back to Mexico? The Ancient and Mysterious Gobekli Tepe One of the standing stones of Gobekli Tepe Gobekli Tepe (Gobekli: Belly Tepe: Hill) is a site six miles outside of Urfa, Turkey that contains megalith circles. It was uncovered in 1994 by German archaeologist Klaus Schmidt. Since that time, Klaus and his team have uncovered at least seven large stone circles and they suspect that there are many more left under 22 acres of land yet to be excavated. Recovered The Ten Inventions of Nikola Tesla Which Changed The W Nikola Tesla-Did You Know? “Tesla was considered an eccentric man who talked of death rays that could destroy 10,000 airplanes at a distance of 250 miles. However, Tesla devised the AC (alternating current) system that we use in our homes today. AC offered great advantages over the rival DC system.
