On May 9, 2001, the Disclosure Project hosted a major event at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. This historic event had witness testimony from twenty to twenty-five military, intelligence, government, and corporate individuals involved with UFO projects over the past fifty years, who presented their information before a worldwide group of media correspondents. "Those of us who were military witnesses of UFO history showed official government documentation with detailed testimony. Our focus was and is on the facts and documents. Our purpose was and is to get the mainstream media and government officials to hear those facts and move us toward an honest congressional inquiry. We who came forward want to ban weapons from space and stop aggressively shooting down these space vehicles and their extraterrestrial occupants. We need to declassify the advanced electromagnetic propulsion systems in use by the secret government, start producing them for the world to use, and thereby help save this planet. The people who had been employed in agencies within the military and knew the truth about UFOs were sworn to secrecy. Now I am finally relieved to speak the truth. We military men who hold on to this knowledge are getting old and dying, and we want the truth to come out. We will either do it ourselves or leave it for our children and wives to do. Personally, I have told those on Capitol Hill that I am being led to do it by the aliens themselves. They have convinced me that it is time. They have been waiting on the government, and if the government does not come forward with the truth, then the aliens will take a more public role in disclosure."

Two myths exist on the late Tesla. Interestingly, one of the myths asserts that Tesla greatest enemy was Thomas Edison. The second mystery of Nikola Tesla is more amazing. The current world talks of his great abilities. A search on the web would provide articles describing Tesla lost inventions, famous discoveries, and a visionary leader. However, during his days, no one acknowledged his unique abilities. Patent disputes occurring between Westinghouse and General Electric have undermined Tesla discovery of present day alternating current. General Electric hired a man to author a book on the Theory and Calculation of Alternating Current Phenomena. Despite thousands of people not reading about the name Tesla, it did not stop his fame. Today people know of his great innovations. Smith Rolf terms the period of starting 1893 as Tesla’s decade.

Explore the War of the Currents and the Individual Lives of Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison Two captivating manuscripts in one book: Nikola Tesla: A Captivating Guide to the Life of a Genius Inventor Thomas Edison: A Captivating Guide to the Life of a Genius Inventor Who was the real winner in the war of the currents? What happened to both of them? And what were their lives like from beginning to end? These are just some of the questions this book aims to answer so you can come to your own conclusion about the question; who was the better inventor, Nikola Tesla, or Thomas Edison? Obsessive, brilliant, and tortured, Nikola Tesla was lauded for his invention of the alternating current (AC), and other significant contributions to science. His claim that "harnessing the forces of nature was the only worthwhile scientific endeavor" both impressed and enraged the scientific community. Eventually, his peers could no longer dismiss his eccentricities and began to view him as a crackpot - a potentially dangerous one. The part of this book that covers mostly Nikola Tesla includes topics such as: Childhood Education and Early Career Patents and Politics The Eccentric Genius Tesla's Coil and the Niagara Contract Influential Friends and the Lure of Flight The Wardenclyffe Tower 1914 and Beyond And much more! Thomas Edison was born into a hard-working but attentive family. He struggled in school and became deaf at an early age. Born on February 11, 1847, Edison would become, arguably, the best-known American inventor of all time. His invention of the light bulb was one of more than 1,000 patents he held during his lifetime. Others included the phonograph, the electrical grid, and motion pictures. His work changed the way we see and hear the world around us. The part of this book that covers mostly Thomas Edison includes topics such as: America Before Edison Enter the Edisons Edison's Mother and Life in Port Huron Telegraphy and Leaving Home Inventing the Future in Menlo Park The Industrial Revolution and Lighting New York The Phonograph and Moving Pictures The World Columbian Exposition The War of the Currents Love, Marriage and Seminole Lodge Edison's War Work Edison and Anti-Semitism The Electric Chair The Next Generation of Edison's Edison's Legacy And much more!

“The story of one of the most prolific, independent, and iconoclastic inventors of this century . . . fascinating.”--Scientific American Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), credited as the inspiration for radio, robots, and even radar, has been called the patron saint of modern electricity. Based on original material and previously unavailable documents, this acclaimed book is the definitive biography of the man considered by many to be the founding father of modern electrical technology. Among Tesla’s creations were the channeling of alternating current, fluorescent and neon lighting, wireless telegraphy, and the giant turbines that harnessed the power of Niagara Falls. This essential biography is illustrated with sixteen pages of photographs, including the July 20, 1931, Time magazine cover for an issue celebrating the inventor’s career. “A deep and comprehensive biography of a great engineer of early electrical science--likely to become the definitive biography. Highly recommended.”--American Association for the Advancement of Science “Seifer's vivid, revelatory, exhaustively researched biography rescues pioneer inventor Nikola Tesla from cult status and restores him to his rightful place as a principal architect of the modern age.” --Publishers Weekly Starred Review “[Wizard] brings the many complex facets of [Tesla's] personal and technical life together in to a cohesive whole....I highly recommend this biography of a great technologist.” --A.A. Mullin, U.S. Army Space and Strategic Defense Command, COMPUTING REVIEWS “[Along with A Beautiful Mind] one of the five best biographies written on the brilliantly disturbed.”--WALL STREET JOURNAL “Wizard is a compelling tale presenting a teeming, vivid world of science, technology, culture and human lives.”--NEW SCIENTIST “Marc Seifer is an excellent writer and scholar, who has produced a wonderfully readable and illuminating biography of one of the most intriguing men of this century...mak[ing] us understand not only the man, but also the times in which he lived....[A] masterpiece.”--NELSON DEMILLE “The author presents much new material...[and] bases his book on a large number of archival and primary sources....Underneath the layers of hero worship, the core of Seifer's book is a serious piece of scholarship.” --Ronald Kline, SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN “Seifer has done a remarkable job going through all the Tesla manuscripts...ferret[ing] out hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles in which he traces out Tesla's public image [and] offers a reasonable reconstruction of Tesla's emotional world...Seifer has significantly advanced our understanding of Tesla.”--Bernard Carlson, author of Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age, for ISIS “It is my opinion that Dr. Seifer leads the world as the most authoritative of all the Tesla researchers.”--J.W. McGINNIS, President, International Tesla Society “Far and away the best job among Tesla biographies.”--Jeffrey D. Kooistra, INFINITE ENERGY “Wizard is...utterly absorbing with chapters charting all stages of Tesla's life...Seifer treats his prodigious subject with sympathy and realism.”--NEXUS “Wizard...presents a much more accurate...picture of Tesla.... [It] is thorough, informative, entertaining and a valuable addition to electrotechnological history, past and future.”--ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING TIMES “In modern times, Tesla may be enjoying a comeback thanks to books like Wizard.”--THE NEW YORK TIMES

A new comprehensive model of mind and its nearly infinite possibilities • Recasts psychology as a vehicle not for mental health but for higher consciousness • Shows that we have consciousness for a reason; it is humanity’s unique contribution to the cosmos • Integrates the work of Freud, Jung, Gurdjieff, Tony Robbins, Rudolf Steiner, the Dalai Lama as well as ESP, the Kabbalah, tarot, dreams, and kundalini yoga The culmination of 30 years of research, Where Does Mind End? takes you on an inward journey through the psyche­--exploring the highest states of consciousness; the insights and theories of ancient and modern philosophers, psychologists, and mystics; the power of dreams, chi energy, tarot, and kundalini yoga; and proof of telepathy and other facets of parapsychology--to explain the mystery of consciousness and construct a comprehensive model of mind and its nearly infinite possibilities. Starting with the ancients and early philosophers such as Zoroaster, Aristotle, Descartes, and Leibniz, the author examines models of mind that take into account divine and teleological components, the problem and goal of self-understanding, the mind/body conundrum, and holographic paradigms. Seifer then moves to modern times to explain the full range of Freud’s psychoanalytic model of mind, exploring such ideas as the ego, superego, and id; the unconscious; creativity; and self-actualization. Using Freud’s psychoanalytical model as framework, he reveals an overarching theory of mind and consciousness that incorporates such diverse concepts as Jung’s collective psyche; ESP; the Kabbalah; Gurdjieff’s ideas on behaviorism and the will; the philosophies of Wilhelm Reich, P. D. Ouspensky, and Nikola Tesla; the personality redevelopment strategies of Tony Robbins; and the Dalai Lama’s and Rudolf Steiner’s ideas on the highest states of consciousness. Recasting psychology as a vehicle not for mental health but for higher consciousness, he shows that by casting off the mechanical mental operation of day-to-day life, we naturally attain the self-integration to which traditional psychology has long aspired. By entering the true path to fulfillment of the soul’s will, we help the planet by transforming ourselves and raising our energy to a higher realm.

Nikola Teslas Forschungen revolutionierten das Verständnis von Elektrizität.

Nicht umsonst trägt das weltweit beste Elektroauto, von Silicon-Valley-Star Elon Musk, den Namen Tesla. Doch nicht nur für seine 112 angemeldeten Patente ist Nikola Tesla bekannt, auch sein extravaganter Lebensstil und sein Hang zur exzessiven Selbstdarstellung machten ihn berühmt. W. Bernard Carlson blickt mit seiner mehrfach ausgezeichneten Biografie tief in die Psyche des Genies: Eindrucksvoll zeigt er, wie nah Genie und Exzentrik beieinanderliegen und was das Ausnahmetalent antrieb.

Tesla hat viel geschaffen, noch mehr wurde ihm zugeschrieben und angedichtet. Wie wohl kein andere Erfinder beflügelt er die Phantasie der Menschen: Er soll ein Energiewesen von der Venus gewesen sein und sein Weltsystem hätte sämtliche Energieprobleme der Erde umweltfreundlich lösen können. Michael Krause hält sich an die Tatsachen, und die sind schon spannend genug. Er beschriebt wie Tesla vom Balkan kommend über Paris in die USA auswanderte, dort seine wichtigsten Erfindungen machte und schließlich Spielball der Großindustrie wurde. Tesla war aber mehr als nur ein willfähriges Subjekt: Er folgte immer seinen Visionen, nur konnte er sich meist nicht durchsetzen. So ist dieses Buch ein Krimi um Wissenschaft, Geld, Macht und das Scheitern eines Genies.
