The idea that humans are capable of time travel has captured the imagination of millions around the world. If we look back in history, we will find numerous texts that can be interpreted as evidence of time travel. When Albert Einstein published his theory of relativity in 1905, it created a stir in the scientific community, opening the page for many questions such as: “Is time travel possible?”
Nikola Tesla was without a doubt the greatest genius of the 20th century. Our current way of life, the technology we take for granted, is made possible by this amazing man from Europe. However, despite all his contributions to science, his name is little remembered outside of the field of electronics and physics. In fact, Thomas Edison is often wrongly credited with school textbooks, with inventions that were developed and patented by Tesla. Most scholars acknowledge that Tesla’s obscurity is due in part to his eccentric ways and fantastic claims during the last years of his life, of communicating with other planets and with the rays of death. Many of these fantastic Tesla inventions are now known to be scientifically accurate and workable.
It has simply taken mankind so long to come up with the amazing ideas of a man who died in 1943. When Tesla died on January 7, 1943, at the age of 86, representatives of the Office of Alien Property, at the request of the FBI, went to the New Yorker Hotel and confiscated all of Tesla’s belongings. The Office of Alien Property, was an office within the United States Government, during World War I, and again during World War II, serving as Custodian of Enemy Property, to properties that belonged to enemies of the United States. Tons of papers, furniture, and artefacts were shipped under seal to Manhattan Storage, and Warehouse Company. This load was added to the nearly thirty barrels and packages stored since the 1930s, and the entire collection was sealed according to the orders of the Office of Foreign Property. Strange behaviour, considering that Tesla was a legal American citizen.
After Tesla’s death, there was a struggle by the United States government to find all of his documents, notes, and research before other foreign powers could find them. Tesla’s nephew, Sava Kosanovic, reported that before the Alien Property Office had arrived, someone else had obviously gone through Tesla’s belongings, and had taken an unknown number of personal notes and documents. The FBI knew that German intelligence had a considerable amount of the Tesla investigation several years before his death. It is believed that this stolen material would eventually result in the development of the Nazi flying saucer. The United States would ensure that this does not happen again.
Anything remotely associated with the great man was quickly confiscated and lost within the secret networks of pre-WWII America. However, more than a dozen boxes of Tesla’s belongings left in hotels, such as the Waldorf Astoria, the Governor Clinton Hotel, and St Regis, had already been sold to pay outstanding Tesla bills. Most of these boxes, and the secrets they contained, have never been found.
Apparently Tesla was eager to tell those interested in his life and science, not to dismiss ideas that seemed supernatural or not from science. His idea of the term supernatural was just things that we cannot yet explain scientifically, but completely possible.
There are places where time and space are naturally bent. An example is, the strange Lordsburg Gate, located near Lordsburg, New Mexico. Periodically, when the door is opened, a tree stump is seen with a human leg embedded in it. There is some evidence that these flows in space and time can be artificially induced. This appears to have been the case with the USS Eldritch, which participated in the Philadelphia experiment on August 15, 1943. The brilliant inventor Nicola Tesla, and the theorist Albert Einstein, are reported to have participated in this experiment. The goal was to make the ship invisible by wrapping the hull in an inch-thick wire, through which a high-frequency signal was induced from a complex system of generators and Tesla coils.
When activated, the ship generated a green mist and disappeared from Philadelphia, reappearing in Norfolk Harbor 24 hours later. Many members of the crew ended up embedded in the ship’s walls. Others went crazy. Some were mercifully dispatched with a pistol shot to the head. Here is a written story of one of the few survivors of the 176-man crew. Tesla was a genius of such magnitude that some doubted that he was really human. Many of Tesla’s inventions, such as the free energy receiver and the long-range death ray, may have been suppressed to prevent the collapse of the electric, coal, and oil industries, or for national security reasons.
Tesla also tried an experiment to use the Earth’s core as a tuning fork, to conduct free electricity. In the process, he melted down the town of Colorado Springs generator. At exactly the same time, an inexplicable explosion in Siberia of around 15 megatons levelled hundreds of square miles of pine forests. This explosion is often dismissed as a comet or meteorite impact. However, it appears that Nikola Tesla may have worked on time travel before modern science thought it was possible. In 1895, Tesla reportedly made a surprising discovery, suggesting that time and space could be influenced by magnetic fields.
Supposedly, this idea – which could alter time and space by magnetic fields – led to a series of experiments that allegedly gave rise to the infamous Philadelphia project, mostly considered a hoax. Tesla is believed to have worked on the idea of time travel, discovering surprising results along the way. Using magnetic fields, Tesla discovered that the space-time barrier could be altered, and accessed by creating a Trojan horse, which eventually led to a different time. However, it is still unclear whether or not Tesla succeeded, as there is no document to prove, or in that case, that something like this occurred. All we know is that reports indicate that in 1895, a witness found Tesla in a small cafeteria looking agitated and disturbed.
In an article in the New York Times, April 21, 1908, on page 5, column 6 with the title “How the electrician’s lamp can build new worlds”, Nikola Tesla cites humanity’s dominance of the physical universe, simply adopting certain theories, he states:
This normal state that Tesla describes is stillness, where the radiation then reverts to its timeline as normal matter. Tesla continues to really open the door to teleportation, in the article saying:
Tesla is implying that matter can be manipulated using intelligent energy (via current technology) to levitate and teleport. He is claiming, in effect, that matter was not predestined at the beginning of the universe. The matter is dynamic and can be altered and relocated using current technology.
He goes on to say:
Now take this to another step, just presume for a moment, first Tesla is right (which throughout history was definitely more correct than incorrect) and some entity in some universe (not necessarily this one that we are living in) discovered this and actually went on to create his own universe (maybe even this one). Today we are very far from what Tesla is explaining here, alone enough to create a universe.
Ironically, this article appeared three years after Einstein published his theory of relativity, and almost twenty years before Monsignor Georges Lemaitre’s hypothesis about the beginning of the universe in 1927, which was later called the Big Bang. One must understand that it is the Big Bang, and the hypothesis associated with inflation, that they are the only obstacles to levitation and teleportation of large objects today (including humans). Tesla opened the door again in the early 1900s, and science closed the door some thirty years later.
After nearly dying, Tesla claimed that he had found himself in a completely different window of time and space, where he could see past, present, and future at the same time, while remaining within the artificially created magnetic field.
Unfortunately, there are no documents, which we were able to find, to support these claims. However, if Tesla tried time travel, he surely wasn’t the only scientist trying.
