    Tesla evangelists often point out that his vision of free, long distance transmission of power was usurped by industrialist JP Morgan and other power barons that wanted to charge for electricity. For the commercialization of electricity, wires would be needed. But – Tesla’s wireless electricity patents are what ultimately gave Tesla the truly deserved credit as the inventor of radio.

  • Yves Rocard and Dowsing

    In most biographies written on Mr. Rocard, the works he produced near the end of his life on biomagnetism and dowsing are only briefly mentioned and with a tone of embarrassment.

  • Spoon Bending

    first heard about spoon bending being offered at a Physics Conference held at the University of Toronto more than 30 years ago. I had to leave early to attend a Therapeutic Touch week in Upper State New York and missed this event. So in March, for my birthday, I invited the person who had shown it at the conference to come to my party and lead us through the process. I purchased many strong second-hand spoons and invited 18 friends to join me. There was a lot of laughter and everyone but one person turned their spoon. Laughter apparently helps to make “it” happen with spoon bending.

    Trucks from the water department pulled up on my cul-de-sac. Several guys in hard hats jumped out. They began to mark the street with blue spray paint. Some of them studied books of charts.

Adults, too ran increased risk of leukemia, lymphomas and brain tumors. Until more is known it is recommended that you reduce exposure to EMF’s by practicing “prudent avoidance” when possible.
