Nikola Tesla and the Correct Scientific Worldview

PSI Blog 20190123 Nikola Tesla and the Correct Scientific Worldview

From George Coyne:

Glenn, these two quotes from Nikola Tesla indicate that he had a similar scientific worldview as you. The Wikipedia entry on Tesla states: Tesla was generally antagonistic towards theories about the conversion of matter into energy. He was also critical of Einstein's theory of relativity saying:

“I hold that space cannot be curved, for the simple reason that it can have no properties. It might as well be said that God has properties. He has not, but only attributes and these are of our own making. Of properties we can only speak when dealing with matter filling the space. To say that in the presence of large bodies space becomes curved is equivalent to stating that something can act upon nothing. I, for one, refuse to subscribe to such a view.

"To me, the universe is simply a great machine which never came into being and never will end" and "what we call 'soul' or 'spirit,' is nothing more than the sum of the functionings of the body. When this functioning ceases, the 'soul' or the 'spirit' ceases likewise." [GB: Amen]

[GB: George, thanks so much for the heads up. This shows nicely that we are all heading toward the same conclusions in science. The universe is the final arbiter, regardless of what we say about it. Humanity is continually under the “sifting and winnowing” of ideas and the destruction of the unfittest. Einstein’s idealism eventually will fall by the wayside along with the religious notions responsible for his popularity.

Readers will remember that “perfectly empty space” is one end member of the “empty space-solid matter continuum.” Both empty space and solid matter are only ideas. Such idealizations do not and cannot exist. Reality always is something in between. The “empty space” idea may help us find a seat in the auditorium, but, thankfully, it does not describe a reality in which there is no oxygen allowing us to survive the performance.

In addition to the vacuous “curved empty space” idea Einstein assumed intergalactic space to be perfectly empty. This enabled his imaginary photons to travel from galaxy to eyeball without losing energy, contradicting the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Nothing travels from point A to point B without losing energy. The idea that light could avoid that natural phenomenon is responsible for the ridiculous hypothesis that the universe is expanding.]

Excellent blog Glenn. The fact that empty space is only an idea means that there is no end to matter.
Tesla’s understanding that the universe "never came into being” means that it has always existed. Universe cannot have any boundaries, because whatever macrocosm exists beyond the boundary is still part of the universe. The idea that there is no existing matter beyond the boundary is absurd because it is impossible for matter to not exist. “Nothing” can never “exist”. Thus, there can only be a series of unending microcosms-in-motion within macrocosms.
