Nikola Tesla: ‘We Have a Message from Another World’

On the fascinating site Letters of Note:

In the summer of 1899, whilst alone in his Colorado Springs laboratory working with his magnifying transmitter, the inimitable Nikola Tesla observed a series of unusual rhythmic signals which he described as ‘counting codes’. Having just detected cosmic radio signals for the first time, Tesla immediately believed them to be attempted communications from an intelligent life-form on either Venus or Mars, and later said of the experience, ‘The feeling is constantly growing on me that I had been the first to hear the greeting of one planet to another’.

The next year, Tesla was asked by the Red Cross to predict man’s greatest possible achievement over the next century. The letter below was his reply.

A much-needed transcript follows.

    Tesla's belief that he was receiving messages from outer space, whether true or not, became his downfall. JP Morgan and Westinghouse used this to discredit his work (once they had their hands on it) and he was presented to the public as the original 'mad scientist'

      “Tesla's belief that he was receiving messages from outer space, whether true or not, became his downfall.” Where as you may believe that, Tesla did not care about money. Also i believe Tesla will be looked at again at one point and his greatness will be declared. He was hundreds of years ahead of his time.
