When we pick up our wireless technology we often don't stop to think about who we should be grateful to for this technology. It is Nikola Tesla and his amazing team.

But if we ever did want to show some gratitude perhaps we should start with Nikola Tesla. For those who aren't aware of who this truly extraordinary man was, he was an inventor who lived well before his time.

Tesla invented what could be classified as the first wireless hand-held radio. He also created turbine engines, neon lights, torpedoes and the X-ray just to name a few of the 700 inventions that he would invent in his lifetime. Such amazing achievements no doubt led to Tesla being sought out by many to do interviews over the years.

The genius that is Nikola Tesla

However, despite creating such achievements that were beneficial to man Nikola Tesla chose to remain a man of mystery and chose not to allow the press to invade his quiet world. But, apparently, Tesla did allow himself to be interviewed at least once as a rare interview has surfaced online that he did over a century ago. This interview gives insights into Tesla not just as a person but a great mind. In the course of the interview, he discussed various things he felt about life and the universe itself. Here is an example of a question ask to him about the greatest accomplishments he felt he was unable to accomplish because mankind wasn't quite ready for them:

Journalist: Mr. Tesla, you have gained the glory of the man who got involved in the cosmic processes. Who are you, Mr. Tesla?
Tesla: It is a right question, Mr. Smith, and I will try to give you the right answer to it.
Journalist: Some say you’re from the country of Croatia, from the area called Lika, where together with the people are growing trees, rocks and starry sky. They say that your home village is named after the mountain flowers, and that the house, where you were born, is next to the forest and the church.

Tesla: Really, all it true. I’m proud of my Serbian origin and my Croatian homeland.
Journalist: Futurists say that the Twenty-and Twenty First Century was born in head of Nikola Tesla. They celebrate conversely magnetic field and sing hymns to Inductions engine. Their creator was called the hunter who caught the light in his net from the depths of the earth, and the warrior who captured fire from heaven. Father of alternating current will make the Physics and Chemistry dominate half the world. Industry will proclaim him as their supreme saint, a banker for the largest benefactors. In the laboratory of Nikola Tesla for the first time is broken atom. There is created a weapon that causes the earthquake vibrations. There are discovered black cosmic rays. Five races will pray to him in the Temple of the future, because they had taught a great secret that Empedocles elements can be watered with the life forces from the ethers.
Tesla: Yes, these are some of my most important discoveries. I’m a defeated man. I have not accomplished the greatest thing I could.

Nikola Tesla electricity

Journalist: What is it, Mr. Tesla?
Tesla: I wanted to illuminate the whole earth. There is enough electricity to become a second sun. Light would appear around the equator, as a ring around Saturn. Mankind is not ready for the great and good. In Colorado Springs I soaked the earth by electricity. Also we can water the other energies, such as positive mental energy. They are in the music of Bach or Mozart, or in the verses of great poets. In the Earth’s interior, there are energy of Joy, Peace and Love. Their expressions are a flower that grows from the Earth, the food we get out of her and everything that makes man’s homeland. I’ve spent years looking for the way that this energy could influence people. The beauty and the scent of roses can be used as a medicine and the sun rays as a food. Life has an infinite number of forms, and the duty of scientists is to find them in every form of matter. Three things are essential in this. All that I do is a search for them. I know I will not find them, but I will not give up on them.
Journalist: What are these things?
