Nikola Tesla “Fragments of Olympian Gossip”

Poem, “Fragments of Olympian Gossip”
By Nikola Tesla

Who is the “long haired crank”?

While listening on my cosmic phone
I caught words from the Olympus blown.
A newcomer was shown around;
That much I could guess, aided by sound.
“There’s Archimedes with his lever
Still busy on problems as ever.
Says: matter and force are transmutable
And wrong the laws you thought immutable.”
“Below, on Earth, they work at full blast
And news are coming in thick and fast.
The latest tells of a cosmic gun.
To be pelted is very poor fun.
We are wary with so much at stake,
Those beggars are a pest—no mistake.”
“Too bad, Sir Isaac, they dimmed your renown
And turned your great science upside down.
Now a long haired crank, Einstein by name,
Puts on your high teaching all the blame.
Says: matter and force are transmutable
And wrong the laws you thought immutable.”
“I am much too ignorant, my son,
For grasping schemes so finely spun.
My followers are of stronger mind
And I am content to stay behind,
Perhaps I failed, but I did my best,
These masters of mine may do the rest.
Come, Kelvin, I have finished my cup.
When is your friend Tesla coming up.”
“Oh, quoth Kelvin, he is always late,
It would be useless to remonstrate.”
Then silence—shuffle of soft slippered feet—
I knock and—the bedlam of the street.
Nikola Tesla, Novice

  1. It seems anti-Tesla agents are heavily motivated and funded to propagate their BS.

    Peter Lindemann has excellent presentation about Tesla’s radiant energy, which many people have replicated and verified.

    What shocks me the comment of a paid-agent David:

    This is the first time somebody asking about practical evidence of Tesla’s works. He claims Tesla knew nothing and his system never worked. None of them asked practical evidence to Einstein and Hawking.

    He is asking to “show” real evidence of useful things from Tesla. Is he blind or drugged? Is the modern AC system something less useful? It’s like a blind man asking about evidence of light when he himself don’t have eyes to look into. He is asking to disprove his “research”. Lol. I am surprised that somebody after doing “research” on Tesla can ask for evidence regarding usefulness of his work.

    You can enjoy the comment section too.

    1. Hi Sonali
      I couldn’t get the video link to work. But if you want working Tesla technology watch some of Eric P Dollard’s videos. There’s an old one, I think he’s with Linderman, where they demonstrate Tesla radiant energy. Don’t have a link at the moment but will post it if I can find it.

      1. No Sonali I rarely delete anything and I have no reason to delete anything of yours. Sometimes there is a delay in my messages for reasons I can’t explain. Others on WordPress have the same problem.

    Found your post: “OK I have shared the screen cast of the comments in that video.
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MQgtOHPJqMQUdO75V9lk97SThx2Qpw6m/view
    See go through the comments. So stupid.
    The commentator was David Davids, and his YouTube profile is:
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNSWIWz7trnMo4Wdbug0j9A

    Looked at some of the videos, comments and found them to be a little confusing. My own point is that for over unity you need to change the electricity to an alternate form of energy. It’s called static, telluric, cold electricity. It’s about removing the magnetic field. No mention of anything like that in the David Davids’ videos or the comments as far as I can see. Basically they are all wasting their time.

  3. Just now I came across a Facebook group called “Rational Scientific Method”. Bill Gaede is one of it’s member. It’s famous for bashing inventors using “semantics” instead of usefulness of their invention.

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/RationalScientificMethod/permalink/620743298074804/
    John Smith comments:”Tesla was an engineer, not a scientist. He was also a neurotic, paranoid, obsessive compulsive, nutcase.”

    Well AFAIK about Tesla, he was a visionary thinker and inventor. I didn’t find any evidence of his being paranoid, etc.

    How come such a sick person be such a brilliant inventor???

    John continues in another post:
    https://www.facebook.com/groups/RationalScientificMethod/permalink/483160841833051/
    “obsessive-compulsive disorder, and was potentially a high-functioning autistic..”
    “This is probably the biggest problem I have with Teslites: their use of such terms as energy and wave.
    They think engineers are scientists, and verbs are nouns.”

    Does scientists have copyright over science? Is science only for scientists? Why so differentiation among engineer and scientist? Are engineers slaves of scientists?

    1. As an engineer myself, I have never been a scientific slave, far from it. Researching the pages of my site I find that science doesn’t do very much apart from tell us what we can’t do. Tesla in his time was one of the most famous men in the world and with good reason, we still use his technology today. Since around 1900 there has been a ban on new electrical technology, this included Tesla’s work and that of scientists. Science has done no research into the true nature of electricity for a hundred yeas. Einstein admitted he knew nothing about electricity which is why Tesla called him a crank:

      “Too bad, Sir Isaac, they dimmed your renown
      And turned your great science upside down.
      Now a long haired crank, Einstein by name,
      Puts on your high teaching all the blame.

      Einstein never did anything that was engineerable or in any way useful, whereas Tesla has hundreds of patents still in use today. I think most people assume our technology comes from science but this is far from true. What science does best is debunk just as you are seeing on Facebook.
      Academic science insists that only science done by them is genuine science, everything else is pseudoscience. The public is misled about their inactivity.
      Ask Bill Gaede to define an EM field, Richard Feynman was asked the same question and failed to give an answer.
      Scientists are the original “social security scroungers”, paid by government for doing nothing.

      1. Nice read.

        1. But why so much discriminations against engineers by Bill? Looks like scientists for him are some special human beings. He is against both Einstein and Tesla and the theories like black hole, relativity, quantum mechanics etc.
        .
        He says Tesla was not a scientist:

        2. And what about those who call Tesla as crazy paranoid etc? Was those personal comments necessary?

  4. I’m looking at the video above as I write and my first though is why do you have to think like a physicist? Some of the things he says are concepts were defined a hundred years ago. As for Crop Circles – and I’ve seen one of these myself in a very out-of-the-way place where few, if any were likely to see it. Why do that? I don’t scoff at such things I put them on a back burner.
    Ancient Egyptians and South Americans did indeed move megalithic stones, but I must have missed the part where he explains how they did it because I don’t know.
    The golden rule for debunking is the same one used by all such “scientific” debunkers. You find the weakest part of the argument and keep hammering it. Ignore anything that may be of value.
    Personally I don’t give a toss for physicists. They have their own delusions that I’ve written about on several occasions. They don’t write to me and say I’m wrong so I have to assume I’m right.
    Take care
