ABOUT THE BOOK
Though we may never be able to comprehend human life, we know certainly that it is a movement of whatever nature it be. The existence of movement unavoidably implies a body which is being moved and a force which is moving it. Hence, wherever there is life, there is a mass moved by a force. All mass posses inertia, all force tends to persist. Owing to this universal property and condition, a body, be it at rest or in motion, tends to remain in the same state, and a force, manifesting itself anywhere and through whatever cause, produces an equivalent opposing force, and as an absolute necessity of this it follows that every movement in nature must be rhythmical. Man, however, is not an ordinary mass, consisting of spinning atoms and molecules and containing merely heat-energy. What is most wonderful of all, he is capable of increasing or diminishing his velocity of movement by the mysterious power he possesses by appropriating more or less energy from other substance, and turning it into motive energy.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, physicist and futurist. Tesla's greatest invention is AC current powers almost all of the technological wonders in the world today, from home heating to computers to high-tech precision robotics. He went United States in 1884 to work for Thomas Edison in New York city. He soon struck out on his own with financial backers, setting Laboratories and companies to develop a range of electrical devices. Because of his eccentric personality and his seemingly unbelievable and sometimes bizarre claims about possible scientific and technological developments, Tesla was ultimately ostracized and regarded as a mad scientist by many late in his life. He became a naturalised U.S., citizen in 1891.
