Please help these students and their families by donating here. As a member of the Irish community I’m greatly affected by this tragedy and would like to do all I can to help them. My artist friends and I will be organizing a benefit show here in San Francisco/Berkeley area shortly. In the meantime please donate and share this as many times as you can. Love and condolences to their families and friends and to those recovering in hospital. <3

Sophie prepares to utilize the earth’s electromagnetic power, to “attach our engines to the wheelwork of the universe.” Tesla was convinced that it is possible to draw unlimited energy from replenishable resources. “I firmly believe that it is practicable to disturb by means of powerful machines the electrostatic conditions of the earth and thus transmit intelligible signals and perhaps power.”
“All ideas of distance must vanish.
