11 QUESTIONS ABOUT TESLA
by Doug Yurchey
I was flattered to be asked to speak in Singapore concerning the work
of the great inventor Nikola Tesla. My first response was to answer any
questions they had in an email. These were their questions and my answers.
Anyone interested in the work of Tesla might enjoy this unconventional
view with its many possible implications.
We are currently working on a proposal to showcase Tesla’s impact on
society. However, we are still rather clueless about the concepts he came
up with such as the Tesla Coil and his theories about the transmission of
energy through the earth and atmosphere. (We belong to the Arts faculty)
Hence, we would appreciate it if you could answer our questions.
1. What exactly does the Tesla Coil do and is it really found in most
of our electrical appliances?
I am not a technical engineer and my answers here will differ from all
others in the electrical field. After what I have discovered, I am very
proud to not be a technical person…because they are limited and
restrictive in their thinking. Let me relate a small story of how I was
able to speak at Carnegie Mellon University. I was introduced to David
Purta, a boy genius in the Research Department of CMU. I went to 3 years
of college, never finished, and should not have been able to tell this
GENIUS anything. Yet, I told him who the real inventor of the AC Current
was…it was, of course, TESLA. He was trained that Steinmetz ‘developed’
AC, so in his mind, he was the inventor. Nothing in his restrictive/edited
science told him otherwise. Now, I had to prove it was Tesla and I
certainly did not do that by speaking in a technical way. No, I handed him
rare books that had to come from the Tesla Museum in Beograd. No one but a
highly trained engineer could make heads or tails of the books…and he did.
He then understood that Tesla patented all his ideas and Tesla invented
just about everything that had to do with electricity, radio and much
more. This impressed Purta so much that he invited me to speak at his
Research Department. I’m not saying the talk went well…because I was
speaking of Tesla’s real significance which has to do (in my view) with
ancient pyramids and Atlantis. These engineers did not want to hear about
what they regarded as fantasy or anything way-out. The lesson (to me) was
a simple child with the truth means more than all scientists from all
universities put together or just ‘don’t believe BOOKS.’ They are only
opinions and usually misinformation. I believe the truth to many things is
fantastic and we have to open our minds in order to really comprehend.
2. Could you explain how a Tesla Coil generates high frequency and
voltage electricity in words the average layman would be able to
What I am saying is I object to your fascination with merely the Tesla
Coil. It is simple; it is a toy; it is only a basic principle and it’s not
so important HOW it works. What is important is WHAT IS ITS SIGNIFICANCE?
What does this mean to the world? Those are big questions and those are
questions I can answer. (Your average electrical engineer could not). I
owned a Tesla Coil and played with it. A florescent tube lights up in your
hand when you wave it near the coil, NO WIRES. I think the coil principle
is in many appliances, it’s a way to amplify the electricity. But what’s
important is not how it works…the question is WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? The
answer is here was a wireless way to power the world! Imagine the
florescent tube experiment on a much larger scale…it could power a city or
a country with wireless energy. Electricity out of thin air; actually the
energy uses the Earth and comes through the ground. In my opinion, you
should not be so concerned with the Coil and more concerned with its Big
Brother that could change the world; the ‘Magnifying Transmitter.’ It’s a
big antenna or big Tesla Coil. Instead of plugging into the electrical
socket for initial power, it uses (a river for the spark) the natural EM
energy of the PLANET for power. It’s a ‘transceiver’ that redirects
natural energies so we can use them for our common electricity. Please
excuse me for side-stepping your basic question. My point is we should be
concentrating on what that simple Coil inspired…that would be WARDENCLYFFE.
3. What inspired Tesla to build the Tesla Coil?
What inspired all of his revelations? PURE ENLIGHTENMENT. You know of
his discovery of the AC while reading Goethe in a garden? The man was
crazed and drew the design for how a signal can ALTERNATE right there in
the dirt! He knew this could CHANGE THE WORLD! He hardly had to test or
experiment to get his wanted results because he could see his machines
work in his mind. How did he conceive of his many patents? The answer must
be from the same place that anyone is coming from who yells ‘Eureka, I’ve
found it!’ Ideas hit you. Your question is like saying where do ideas come
from? I know that Tesla opened up channels and a flood of ideas came
through to account for those incredible patents in a short time, not too
different from Mozart receiving musical inspiration.
4. In your opinion, is HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research
Project), founded on Tesla’s theories, really able to manipulate the
atmosphere and weather?
I wrote an article concerning the idea that HAARP caused Hurricane
Katrina. I have also corresponded with Scott Stevens who, unbelievably,
was on CNN News and implied (on television!) that Hurricane Katrina could
have been a case of weather modification. Why did the U.N. ban countries
from Weather Wars? Yes, it’s very possible that we people of Earth are the
victims of federal officials and their (evil) scientists that have
perverted Tesla’s principles. Tesla’s NY apartment was raided right after
his death. Plans for such a means of weather manipulation was intended by
Tesla to be used for GOOD purposes; such as making rain where it was
needed or disperse clouds where it has rained too much. It was NOT
intended to start an earthquake or whip up a tornado! I have even heard
reports that TESLA WAS MURDERED, believe it or not. Supposedly, the old
man was run over and killed on the streets of NY. Could this have been
done by the same people who raided his apartment? I sure don’t have all
the answers. It’s possible that the feds have taken Tesla’s concepts and
made weapons with such principles rather than doing something good for the
human race. It would be typical of the military mind-set of federal,
war-making officials. What I know about how HAARP functions is…it is a
fixed grid. We move an antenna to get the best reception…well, HAARP is a
fixed array of antennas and the energy moves; you can direct the energy to
anywhere you choose. It is sad and disgusting what they have done with
Tesla’s principles. I’m sure he would ‘turn over in his grave’ as they
say. You may have heard of the Philadelphia Experiment. Tesla was
certainly involved; the military only tried to BEAM A BATTLESHIP like the
transporter we see on Star Trek. The reports say soldiers were fused with
the metal of the ship; that is believable with the process of physically
beaming an object. Tesla worked with the military, but I will never
believe he was behind using his principles as weaponry. He wanted to help
the world, not hurt it. But…after his death…the feds could do anything
they wanted to do.
5. How does electrical conductivity using the Earth as a medium work?
I know a bit about this and can put it in a way a layman can
understand. This was illustrated by a little drawing in the Tesla
material. Imagine a tuning fork at a certain location and a signal is
reverberated there. The Earth propagates that wave as if it was water or
ripples on a lake. Another tuning fork a thousand miles away, let’s say,
will suddenly start vibrating in sync with the original signal. (7 ½ hertz
frequency) The tuning forks are the towers placed at certain global
positions. They become part of a World System of Power Towers all
vibrating with the same oscillation using the planet to further the
wireless electricity. At Colorado Springs, Tesla proved that the entire
planet could act as a conductor of electricity…Tesla had made his
incredible AC obsolete…and that led to his ultimate invention: the nearly
200-foot tower in NY (1900-1905).
6. In Singapore, Tesla is an unknown name. Besides sheer ignorance,
why do you think the education system leaves out his name in the field of
That is a very large question. Again, this was why David Purta had no
knowledge of Tesla being the creator of AC. Another way to ask the
question is why did Edison get all the credit? It is a corrupt world, I am
sad to say. Edison invented virtually NOTHING! He was Tesla’s opposite; he
was a moneyman. People came to his company with their brilliant ideas;
Edison bought them and took the credit. Edison was uneducated. He may have
found the filament for the light bulb, but that was only after he tested
every material there was; that’s not inspiration, that’s stumbling upon
the best results. That filament isn’t even used anymore. TESLA set the
60-cycles for the light bulb, NOT EDISON. So why does everyone think, not
only that Edison invented the light bulb, but that Thomas Alva was
responsible for the entire electrical system? It’s even called
‘Continental Edison.’ This is sacrilege (as you well know) because…Edison
campaigned against the AC in favor of his primitive DC. DC is a joke and
goes nowhere, a matter of a few feet and then it burns the wire. Ah, but
if the signal can be made to alternate…then you can wrap the world with
available (wired) electricity. The short answer to your question is
WIRELESS ELECTRICITY. Tesla combined electricity and radio. We could now
broadcast power and this is what is important. We are not meant to know
about that and what happened more than 100 years ago with Wardenclyffe.
Tesla was taken out of the books and discredited because governments keep
the truth away from their citizens. They do not want anyone developing
Tesla’s principles in a world that cannot have Tesla’s principles. Now,
let me give you a specific reason:
You may not be aware of this…(here’s a big question for you)…why can’t
we have Tesla Technology, meaning WIRELESS ELECTRICITY today? If someone
built a modest 40 or 50-foot tower…let’s say, they knew how Tesla did it
and duplicated his power tower near a city and turned it on. IT WOULD
DISRUPT ALL OUR COMMUNICATIONS! There would be static on all televisions,
radio and on phone lines around the tower…within its range. We CANNOT have
Tesla Tech currently because we went down the wrong path over 100 years
ago with the failure of Wardenclyffe. Tesla’s system and today’s system
are incompatible. Tesla, in his time, would have disrupted nothing. His
system would have handled all communications; there would be World TV;
free phone calls anywhere; imagine a super Internet in 1905! We were not
ready for this and we still aren’t with our warlike ways. Governments
would make a weapon before they FREELY power a city. I believe government
scientists know how Tesla did it and are not permitted to duplicate his
ultimate experiment. The tower causes such a high Electro-Magnetic field
that it would fry everything in its range. In the same way, you would not
want to put a MAGNET on your computer. What this means is we are not going
to have this superior, wireless system until we scrap all our cel phones,
computers and other communication systems. Who is going to change the
planetary status quo, which they have invested so much in, to give the
world free energy? It’s not going to happen in the corrupt world we live
I mentioned that Tesla Coil I owned. I was ignorant of what it did back
then, so I placed it on a large stereo speaker. Well, it wasn’t long
before that speaker screwed up and I had to take it in to be fixed. Much
later, I realized it was the strong, electrical field from this one-foot
high coil that caused the damage. I also had an electronic computer chess
game in the room and that malfunctioned as well. The little thing was a
powerful sucker within its range!
Another reason for Wardenclyffe’s failure is German scientists. This
was just before the start of WWI. Something changed Tesla’s mind…here was
his ultimate achievement…it all led up to this…5 years in the construction
phase with even famous architect Stanford White designing the
non-technical architecture for the Wardenclyffe station. Why did the world
get screwed out of this new age, this technical utopia? It must be because
this beautiful tower could be made into a weapon. Tesla realized that the
entire Earth could be split in two! Few scientists believed him, yet a
note can shatter a glass by the perfect frequency. The planet could have
been held hostage with what could be perverted into a DOOMSDAY WEAPON! I
believe some greater intelligence informed Tesla ‘no, humans now are not
ready for this.’ Can you imagine? Maybe Tesla dismantled his tower because
he did not want to be responsible for the destruction of Earth by madmen.
7. What do you think about Tesla’s theories of free energy from the
vacuum, which is being advocated by Lt Col. Thomas E Bearden (Retired)?
Again, I know little of his work specifically. I have heard the name
before. I have also heard of James McCanney who claims to be building
Tesla’s tower and duplicating his wireless experiments. Like I stated,
this cannot be done…or would never be allowed by the authorities. So, I
believe his claims are bogus and only for hype. Once more, if you want
those technical answers…I guess you’re speaking to the wrong man.
Seriously, that is not what’s important, but I think I can tell you what
is important. What Tesla Technology really means or it’s true significance
has to do with PYRAMIDS, ATLANTIS and our strange/lost ancient prehistory.
I will explain later.
8. How did Tesla’s work on particle beam weapons give rise to today’s
‘Star Wars’ weapons such as the ABL (Air-borne Laser) and SBL (Space-based
Lasers) and many others?
What I do know is how governments will make weapons instead of
developing Tesla’s ideas for the betterment of the human race. Instead of
having lasers transmit communications and information, they will tune it
to make a Death Ray. Who knows? Maybe they have already developed a super
Star Wars laser in the event of an Earth collision with a large asteroid.
Very possible, I believe. It’s like the Force in the film ‘Star Wars,’ the
same (Tesla) principle could be used for the Good or perverted and used
for destructive purposes. HAARP as well as the Star Wars Project probably
originated from the work of Nikola Tesla.
9. If there were one word to describe Tesla, what would it be?
10. How else did Tesla contribute to society?
Let me elaborate on my unique theories concerning Tesla and Atlantis,
because, in my opinion, it is the true answer to your question. It is also
my life’s work. If we did utilize Wardenclyffe in 1905 and quantum leaped
humankind hundreds of years with this futuristic technology, there would
not have been the Great Depression or the World Wars in the 20th Century.
We would be on the threshold of Utopia. How do I know these are the seeds
of Paradise or a Heaven on Earth? Because it already happened in our
distant past! Tesla Technology is the secret to the PYRAMIDS. Your
question was; how did Tesla impact society? The answer is a REDISCOVERY OF
WHAT HAPPENED LONG AGO IN THE ANCIENT PAST. A pyramid is far from a tomb
built by slaves. It is a LENS…as a lens can focus light rays into a single
beam…so can a pyramid tap into that same force that moves a compass
needle. Energy is everywhere (even in the vacuum of space)…and if we were
very smart, we would have the knowledge to tap that natural EM energy and
create electricity. I believe if we traveled to other planets, we could
very well see the ruins of pyramids. Any intelligent race knows the most
efficient way of acquiring and distributing power. There are even the
ruins of a Great Pyramid on Mars, aligned with the Martian directions! The
question is can an ancient civilization maintain that utopia? Here are
links to my Tesla-related articles:
I put together the above image long ago and it EQUATES the Great
Pyramid with a Tesla tower. QUESTION: Which one is the modern and the more
sophisticated device? Many would answer ‘the Tesla tower.’ Not so…the more
advanced thing here is the pyramid. If we had a wonderful world and
developed Tesla Technology without the fear of military intervention and
kept improving and improving that tower over centuries…you would have the
PYRAMID. A pyramid electrically excites or powers a World Grid of
megalithic statues, stele, obelisks and other standing stones. That system
will exist in the future as it did in the past.
As incredibly amazing as the Wardenclyffe tower was and would have been
(few realize since it’s been suppressed), it was only the basic
principle…just proving the principle. The tower, like the first radio, was
crude and basic. Now radios are sleek and do not even appear as radios.
The same can be said for titanic, stone statues of the past…they were not
just great art; they were utility poles in a worldwide energy-distribution
system. I have spent 35 years working on the idea…and that idea came to me
as a bolt of inspiration in 1978.
You can visit my website; click on INTERVIEWS and hear the strange
story of the 13-point map:
In the 1970s, I was married to a very psychic woman. She channeled the
following map when I asked HOW DID HUMANS ARRIVE ON EARTH?
I’m sure this is confusing to you and unexpected, but this is what I’m
about and to me: It’s the most important thing in the world! It means a
completely different genesis for humans. How could we have begun here in
primitiveness or barbarism if an ADVANCED TESLA WORLD SYSTEM STANDS IN
RUIN IN OUR DISTANT PAST? Please allow me to explain a little. I knew of
these (channeled) 13 locations in 1974. The only locations immediately
familiar were the Great Pyramid, Stonehenge and Easter Island. Soon, I
found out about Tassili, Zimbabwe, the New Delhi Pillar and a few others.
What is amazing is the last 3 locations which were totally unknown and
undiscovered back in 1974…There was Yonaguni (underwater in the Sea of
Japan), the Brazil discovery and something very recently found in CANADA.
I will send you my articles, one that is called ‘Atlantis Power Grid.’
It’s the title of a full manuscript I am writing.
In my studies of Tesla, I found out that Wardenclyffe was established
on Long Island to accommodate the large population of New York. But, it
had a limited range (like a radio tower) and OTHER towers would have to be
built at special global locations. I found out that Tesla planned NINE
towers and that would have covered the entire surface of Earth. We could
have had wireless electricity on the top of Mt. Everest or everywhere,
anywhere. When I read this, a bolt of inspiration hit me that changed my
life! I fell to the ground; shuddering in tears, realizing that map of 13
from a few years earlier was a prehistoric TESLA WORLD SYSTEM! The ancient
Atlanteans used the same principle, created Cradles of Civilizations ON A
WORLDWIDE GRID PATTERN. Each location in the pattern marked our beginning.
I have never been the same since. These recent discoveries baffle the
investigating scientists…but I expected an ancient anomaly exactly at
those locations. My research has shown that Darwin Evolution is a
misconception, etc., etc. We have lost the great knowledge that we once
possessed in the past. This is the significance to TESLA. You asked and I
had to answer the best I could. I believe the human race once thrived
around an ancient Tesla system. If true, it could blow up in their face
and I think this is what happened. Paradise became corrupted; they went to
war; destroyed the towers and suddenly the global power was gone…
11. Imagine you are supposed to organize a series of activities to
showcase Tesla’s life and work, what would you come up with?
I would plan a course around the concepts outlined in these answers.
What I have not revealed to you is I may have spoken with TESLA’S SON! I
was pen pals with Arthur Matthews; he was in his nineties and has now
passed away. Tesla and Matthews co-wrote a book together called ‘The Wall
of Light’ (a reference to a Forcefield). It is available through Health
Research. Tesla gave all of his secrets to Matthews. But, few give
Matthews any credibility because he claims ‘Venusians’ contacted him and
informed him that Tesla was one of them! I know how that sounds. Yet,
Matthews’ story is believable when you consider the evidence. It just
rings true: He said that Tesla was wealthy from wisely invested his AC
money and never had financial problems, contrary to almost all Tesla
books. They say J. P. Morgan pulled his funds because he could not profit
from Free Energy…not true. The Magnifying Transmitter failed for the
reasons stated above. Matthews wrote to me and said ‘Tesla married in
1890, had a son and died a rich man.’ That goes against just about every
Tesla book. (Remember, I said ‘don’t believe books’). I asked him, are you
Tesla’s son? He did not answer me, which led me to believe he was his
secret son and was purposely kept out of the limelight. There is evidence
to support this. Matthews told me about the German scientists and the real
reason his big tower failed…and that is not the same story in the books.
So, it does not matter how many books you have read on Tesla;
misinformation has simply been passed down from book to book. It does not
make them true. I have also written about the mystery of Venus; first they
said the Magellan probe found NO volcanism whatsoever and Venus had never
changed with the most intense cratering in the Solar System…now the same
scientists of Magellan claim there IS volcanoes and changes on Venus.
There is truly a large mystery there, governments know about it…but we do
not. I asked Arthur Matthews WHEN? When will we have Tesla Technology? He
told me on the phone the one time I spoke with him ‘so long in the future
that no one would even have heard of Tesla.’
