In 1926, Collier's magazine published an interview with the inventor Nikola Tesla. The content of the conversation at that time was shocking - and now very curious. < Website publish this stunningly interesting essay, in which the great scientist showed his talent visionary and guessed a lot of things that we can see now in our time.
The life of bees will be the rule for the human race, says famous scientist Nikola Tesla. Approaching a new sexual order in which women play a major role. We will communicate instantly using a simple handheld devices. Planes will fly in the sky, driving without the participation of people - on the radio. Huge reserves of energy will be transmitted over long distances without wires. Earthquakes will occur more often. And to some of these amazing events have little time, says Tesla.
Nikola Tesla 68 years. He sits quietly in his office, studying the world that changed with their own hands, and others predicting changes that will inevitably occur due to the progress of mankind. Tesla - tall, thin, ascetic man who wears dark and looks at the world of calm, deep-set eyes. He can afford to, but he lives modestly and with astonishing carefully select your diet. He does not drink anything but water and milk, and did not smoke tobacco to youth.
He is an engineer, inventor, and besides all this, and even a philosopher. And despite his obsession with the practical application of all that a gifted mind can learn from books, he never forgot about the drama of human life. Fifty years later, he says, the world will be different from what we see now, much more than our present world - from what we've seen half a century ago.
Tesla came to America when he was still young, and his genius was quickly recognized. Thanks to its revolutionary electric devices, he earned money and built several factories - first in New York, then in Colorado and on Long Island - where he began to pursue his countless experiments that led to a variety of critical (and not) achievement of electrical science.
"Since the advent of wireless systems, - he says - I realized that this new art will bring to mankind more than any other scientific discovery, because it actually destroys the distance. Most of the disasters that afflict humanity, caused enormous dimensions of the globe and the inability of nations and people come in close contact ».
Wireless transfer will ensure this close contact through the transporter intelligence of our bodies, materials and energy.
"The whole world will turn into a huge brain. We will be able to chat with each other instantly, regardless of distance. Moreover, with the help of television and telephone, we will be able to see and hear each other as well as if we were sitting face to face, despite the distance of thousands of miles; and devices that will enable us to do that would be amazingly simple compared with our current phones. A man can wear such a device in your pocket. We will be able to watch and listen to the event - the inauguration of the president, a sports championship, the earthquake or the battle - as if we are there ».
"When the wireless transmission of energy will be commercialized, there will be a revolution. We have already passed the movies wirelessly over short distances. But then - just a few years - the distance is not limited. Images already transferred by wire, via telegraph. But when the wireless transfer of energy becomes mass, all these methods seem the same primitive as the steam locomotive as compared to the electric train ».
The boundaries will be destroyed h2> All railways are electrified, and steam locomotives will be in museums. There will be flying cars, which do not carry fuel on board, and will be free from all restrictions of today's airplanes and airships. We will be able to travel from New York to Europe in a few hours. International borders are for the most part destroyed, begin unification and harmonization of different races that inhabit the earth. Wireless technologies harmonize the interests of different countries, provide an understanding of the differences instead. Modern power systems will become obsolete.
Tesla anticipates enormous changes in everyday life. We will be able to print the daily newspaper at home wirelessly each morning. Management house - heating, lighting, mechanics - will be carried out automatically.
"I foresee the appearance of flying machines the size of a car, and I believe that Mr. Ford will make a great contribution to this cause. The problem of parking and road construction will be resolved. In our cities there will be parking towers, and the road will be widened either due to the need, or not at all will be unnecessary when civilization will replace wheels on the wings. " And the stocks of the heat our planet - which they say the frequent volcanic eruptions - will be used for industrial purposes.
One of the main changes of the future Tesla considers changing the status of women. "Even a person with no sociological education is clear that in the world it is a new attitude to sex discrimination. The struggle of women for equality will create a new sexual order in which the woman takes a leading role ».
"Women achieve equality, and then not by the rule of primitive physical imitation of men, but the awakening of intelligence. From the beginning, the history of the subordination of women resulted in the partial atrophy of the mental qualities which, as we now know, the female sex is endowed with no less than men ».
The Queen - the center of life h2> «female mind has demonstrated the ability to all intellectual achievements, which are capable men, and this capacity will be expanded. The average woman will not be less, and then more educated than the average man. Women will ignore the past and civilization amaze your progress ».
"The gradual development of women's leadership and new areas of activity will blunt the sensitivity of women to suppress the maternal instinct. Marriage and motherhood may begin to sicken and human civilization will be more closer to the perfect civilization bees ».
The principle that dominates the economy of bees - the most organized and coordinated intellectually unsustainable form of animal life - is the instinct of immortality, which replaces the divine motherhood. Queen - the center of the life of a bee. It dominates in the hive - and not by inheritance, but because it is - the bosom of the insect race.
Sterilization race h2> Bee hive based on huge deprived armies sex workers, whose sole purpose and happiness in life - hard work. It is an ideal socialized, cooperative life. Further, in the hive have females that are saved in case pchelomatka disappointing hive. And there are the drones, which are a little bit and that suffer only because they are necessary for the fertilization of the uterus. Only the strongest of them reaches this point - and then dies. And the queen returns to the hive, bringing tens of thousands of eggs, the future city of bees, and begins a new cycle of reproduction.
Imagination refuses to acknowledge that such a perspective is possible for humanity. But if you think about how the instinct of mankind to obessmerchivaniyu their race presides over our lives, then why not assume that because of intellectual breakthrough women this instinct finally express itself on the model of the bees? Of course, you will need many centuries to change the habits and customs of the people blocking the way of this simple and scientifically organized civilization.
But we can already see how it starts in the United States. In Wisconsin, the law requires the sterilization of criminals and premarital examination of men. We can only wait and wonder what it will be possible, when scientists finally have their say.
