Tesla’s World-Wide Wireless Transmission Of Electrical Signals, As Well As Light and Power - Illustration and caption by Hugo Gernsback from Electrical Experimenter magazine, February 1919, article written by ‘The Man Who Invented The 20th Century’, the great Nikola Tesla.
Aries:I personify the ‘adolescent on a phone’, speaking like I’m bigger than my body. I personify that lack of freedom in your life, and I’m sure she’ll be gone in a second // This Must Be My Dream
Taurus: Go down. Soft sound. Midnight. Car lights. Playing with the air. Breathing in your hair. Go down. Soft sound. Step into your skin? I’d rather jump in your bones. Taking up your mouth, so you breathe through your nose // The 1975
Gemini: You smashed a glass into pieces, that’s around the time I left. When you were coming across as clever, then you lit the wrong end of a cigarette. You said I’m full of diseases, your eyes were full of regret. And then you took a picture of your salad and put it on the Internet // Change Of Heart
Cancer: Oh I just don’t believe that you have got it in you cause we are just gonna keep “doin’ it” and every time I start to believe in anything you’re saying, I’m reminded that I should be getting over it. I don’t want your body, but I hate to think about you with somebody else. Our love has gone cold, you’re intertwining your soul with somebody else // Somebody Else
Leo: It’s not about reciprocation it’s just all about me, a sycophantic, prophetic, Socratic junkie wannabe. There’s so much skin to see, a simple Epicurean Philosophy. And you say I’m such a cliche, I can’t see the difference in it either way. And we left things to protect my mental health, but you call me when you’re bored and you’re playing with yourself // The Sound
Virgo: My hair is brown, she’s scared to touch. And she just wants to feel something, and I don’t think that’s asking for too much. And when I go to sleep it’s when she begins to weep. She’s appalled by not loving me at all. She wears a frown and dressing gown, when she lays down // She Lays Down
Libra: And well, I think I’ve gone mad, isn’t that so sad? And what a shame you’ve lost a brain that you never had. Oh mum check the car it can’t have gone far, I must have left it on a train or lost in a bar. It’s likely in a Sainsbury’s, flirting with the girls and waiting for me. I jumped on a bus, declared my name, and asked if anybody’s seen my brain // The Ballad Of Me And My Brain
Scorpio: She’s inducing sleep to avoid pain, and I think she’s got a gun divinely decreed and custom made. She calls on the phone like the old days, expecting the world. Don’t fall in love with the moment, and think you’re in love with the girl // She’s American
Sagittarius: She’s a pain in the nose, I’m a pain in women’s clothes. You’re a walking overdose in a great coat. And so she wrote a plan for it on the back of a fag packet. She had to leave because she couldn’t hack it, not enough noise and too much racket. I think I’ve spent all my money and your friends, oh. But how I’d love to go to Paris again // Paris
Capricorn: And you’re the only thing that’s going on in my mind, taking over my life a second time, I don’t have the capacity for fucking, you’re meant to be helping me. When I said I liked it better without my money, I lied. It took a little while to recognise that I, I’m not giving it up again // UGH!
Aquarius: You look famous, let’s be friends and portray we possess something important and do the things we like, meaning, we’ve just come to represent. A decline in the standards are what we accept // Love Me
Pisces: I never did understand the duality of art and reality. Living life and treating it as such. There’s a certain disconnect to touch, that cajoles at the artist with comfort and abandon. Between the spires and the rolling roofs of the white city, that orange English light cast only one, singular shadow. For you are not beside but within me // Loving Someone
I am seeing them perform this album live today, rip any chance I had of sleeping
In 1895, Nikola Tesla began to notice a peculiar phenomena with electrical transformer systems when he added an extra or third coil. This would generate a very large non-linear amplification of electrical pressure over a modest linear amplification as seen with traditional transformers. He studied this phenomena in his Manhattan laboratory over the coming years, until he felt he needed to deploy this system to a larger testing ground. In Colorado Springs 1899, Tesla performed a series of experiments over nine months that led to his discoveries around a new kind of electrical transformer system that he called his Magnifying Transmitter. He soon received a patent for it thereafter (Patent #1,119,732) as well as several supportive auxiliary patents.
This system was capable of generating massive amounts of electrical pressure that would create electrical ripples along the surface of the earth. In a vibrational process known as constructive interference, Tesla was able to generate more wireless power received than transferred by creating a resonant boundary condition between the earth-atmosphere interface with the use of high frequency electrostatic shock waves. This is by no means electromagnetic radiation such as with visible light, cosmic rays, and radio waves. This was nothing like a radio antenna as many experts have proclaimed it is. Tesla’s goal was actually to minimize the electromagnetic radiation from the system as much as possible by containing it in a localized standing wave, the opposite notion of traditional radio antennas. This standing wave instead acts as a wave pump that generates surface waves. A simple analogy is a hand repetitively tapping the surface of the water in a bowl that is perfectly in time with the return wave of surface ripple.
Tesla measured these electrical ripples traveling around the entire circumference of the earth moving faster than the speed of light, specifically two times pi the speed of light (1.57c). When the linear velocity of the shock wave is the same as the angular velocity of the wave’s medium, and the wave and particle (the medium) are directly in phase with each other, the necessary conditions to create constructive interference with Tesla’s Magnifying Transmitter are possible.
In 1901, Nikola Tesla began the construction of Wardenclyff Tower on Long Island, New York. Tesla originally pitched the project to financier JP Morgan as a trans-Atlantic wireless communications platform. This system could not only transfer information faster than Marconi’s radio antennas, but energy as well, unbeknownst in detail to Morgan. When Tesla ran out of money for the project, Tesla revealed his true intent to Morgan of his visionary dream with the system involving the wireless transfer of energy. Not only did Morgan not give Tesla anymore money and withdraw entirely from the project, he supposedly managed to blacklist Tesla from the financial industry at large. JP Morgan had a major stake in the copper industry which was booming in demand due to electrical power distribution. The tower was eventually demolished in 1917 to pay a portion of Tesla’s debts.
Since then, his work has been buried continuously by corporate and political interests as other up and coming inventors rediscover Tesla’s principles and apply them to technology. History is continually repeating itself, and it takes only an open mind set of a free thinking intellectual to see the patterns.
Elon Musk’s company may honor the name, but they do not truly honor Tesla’s legacy. For there is great irony in Musk declaring that his role model is Thomas Edison.
Let us honor our history.
Let us honor our true visionaries.
Let us honor what solutions are available right now.
The clock is ticking.
For this is not an issue of science.
This is an issue of Man.
Wireless (HR x Reader) Imagines - Anonymous Request
Imagine: You were trying to help HR with finding his purpose in the team, when an idea suddenly struck you…
“So, let me get this straight.”
HR took the pair of white wireless earbuds and flipped them over at least a dozen times. When he was done, he held them up for you to observe.
“These,” he started excitedly, “are supposed to make me sound smarter?”
You smiled. “More or less.”
“That’s so cool!”
“You think?” You asked, taking the Apple Airpods from him and gently slipping them into his ears. “I mean, they’re just headphones. And you’ll just be repeating everything I say, so technically, I’m the one making you smarter.”
“Well then,” he grinned. “That just makes you an absolute darling.”
A warm flush heated your cheeks.
While you were a friendly person yourself and were used to being treated likewise, there was just something about the way HR said certain things - certain phrases - that had your heart beating and you behaving like a ditzy schoolgirl.
It drove you insane.
Just like now.
Doing your best to remain calm, you reached over to the nearby table and grabbed a very fashionable Baltic trapper hat that matched his outfit well. Sticking your hand inside, you fluffed out its shape so that it doesn’t mess with HR’s hair before placing it on his head.
“Love the hat, too,” he commented.
“I figured you might,” you answered professionally. Pulling on the flaps, you made sure to keep the Airpods well-hidden and safe.
He grinned, angling himself a specific way. “How do I look?”
You couldn’t help but smile. “Charming.”
“Smart and charming?” HR laughed before. “If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve assumed you’re trying to dress me up so I can go on a date with you.”
Ignoring his last comment, you took a step back and gestured around the room.
“Now,” you started in a business-like voice. “I’ve set up microphones around the room, so I can hear everything you can. Just say everything exactly as I say, and you should be good, okay?”
The man gave you two thumbs up. “Of course.”
“Good,” you nodded.
Just as you were about to reach for your belongings and excuse yourself with a prompt ‘I’ll-be-around’, the Human Resource expert took a few steps forward and immediately swung his arms around you. His arms hugged you a little too tight, but were nonetheless appreciative.
“Thank you,” he whispered quietly, feeling a smile form on his lips. “For everything you’ve done. You really are an amazing person.”
Blushing brightly, you awkwardly reached up and patted his back. “Oh, it’s no…uh, it’s no big deal?”
“No, my darling,” he pulled back enough so you could see his startlingly bright blue eyes. “It is a very big deal because - without you - I wouldn’t be able to convince the others of my contribution to the team.”
And before you new it, HR leaned in and gave you a quick peck on the forehead.
The gesture had been so sweet and so subtle, you actually had to stop for a moment or two and question yourself whether or not it really happened.
Requested by: Anonymous Prompt: Can we get something where the reader is trying to get HR to stop repeating what everyone says to make it seem like his idea?
“We shall have no need to transmit power at all. Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. This idea is not novel. Men have been led to it long ago go by instinct or reason. It has been expressed in many ways, and in many places, in the history of old and new. We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who drives power from the earth; we find it among the subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians, and in many hints and statements of thinkers of the present time. Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic? If static, our hopes are in vain; if kinetic — and this we know it is for certain — then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature.”
[In the future we will no longer need power stations, but will develop machinery that can access power from anywhere. If we live amid a medium through which there is no continuous flow of energy, this realization would appear to be impossible, but if everything around us is in constant motion, then human ingenuity must find a means of converting that energy to productive uses.]

This week I was fortunate enough to receive the brand new simplehuman Wide View Sensor Mirror. I had seen a link to this being shared around on Facebook and it instantly piqued my interest! Being a makeup artist, one of my pet hates is poor lighting when it comes to makeup application - particularly at night. So when I read the features of this mirror, I knew I just HAD to review it!!!
I nearly snapped off the delivery mans arms when I hastily snatched this beauty from him a few days ago. In fact, I often find myself stood at the door mumbling briefly about the product to warrant my erratic excitement when he knocks - I’m sure he’s used to me by now. I hope!
Anyway, let me give you a little overview as to why this mirror is magic: As you can see from the images above, it has 3 wide view panels that are adjustable so you can view it flat or curved. This means you are able to see yourself panoramically from any angle! So when it comes to checking if my contouring is completely blended I need no longer crane my neck to see the sides of my face, I can now see both sides with ease. The mirror also tilts back and forth so you can adjust it for a more comfortable view. In between the three panels are 2 strips of light, known as the tru-lux light system. What makes this light-up mirror different from many others is that it simulates natural sunlight so you can get a true view of your makeup as if you were outside. More on this in a moment!
Another key feature of the wide view mirror is that it has a built-in sensor. So as your face approaches the mirror the tru-lux light system automatically illuminates without the need to turn it on. Only once you move away does it turn itself off again. It’s a rechargeable device which gives you 3 weeks battery life. And this also means it’s cordless once charged, so yes, you can easily move it from room to room.
There is more to the tru-lux lighting system that just a sensor and the ability to check your makeup in natural sunlight… It’s the first of it’s kind to be app-enabled! As soon as it arrived I downloaded the free simplehuman app and wirelessly I was able to control my mirror! I think Tommy had more fun than I did, you know men love a gadget! You can adjust not only the lighting, but the sensor timings AND set alarms - incase you get swept away in the moment and don’t realise it’s time to leave for work. To alert you the light starts to flash. Cool eh?
This next part is what REALLY made me long for this mirror… You can capture the ambient light from different locations using images from your PHONE. Yes. You simply choose your desired photo - it could be your office, or your favourite restaurant even, and the mirror will mimic the colour temperature and intensity so you can check your makeup in the lighting of the venue before you even leave the house! Gobsmacked….? Tell me about it.
I will be consciously snapping photos of my favourite places just so I can see my makeup in those lightings - just incase. The app is so simple to use. I put in my WiFi code upon request, enabled bluetooth on my phone, it then searched for my mirror and we were connected.
Here is a little snap shot of some foundation swatches in a typical lighting situation vs in front of the tru-lux light system:
You can see the colours of the foundation in much more clarity.
This is what the app looks like upon opening. You can see the name of the mirror, the battery life, and options to click on to access light modes, alarms, and sensor settings.
Here is the light modes page within the app. It contains some pre-set light modes: ‘natural light’ ‘candle light’, ‘restaurant’ and ‘cloudy day’. The first 5 symbols are pre-sets, and then you have the ‘plus’ button to add your own custom light settings. Below, you can manually adjust the brightness OR you can press auto brightness.
The mirror itself is quite weighty and extremely sturdy, you can trust that it will not fall over and break. Although it’s a little weighty it’s still portable. You can see from the images above that it’s super slimline and fits beautifully on a dressing table, or even in the bathroom.
It’s ideal for me as I often teach 1-2-1 classes downstairs, and I have a filming room upstairs, so I can easily cart it back and forth.
Here is a little mobile snap of me and my magic mirror:
The mirror retail prices are as follows:
£299.99 here in the UK
$400.00 in the US
€399.99 in the EU
It’s currently available on the UK & US sites, and will be available on the German & French websites by the end of the week!
“The Hertz wave theory of wireless transmission may be kept up for a while, but I do not hesitate to say that in a short time it will he recognized as one of the most remarkable and inexplicable aberrations of the scientific mind which has ever been recorded in history.”
