RE: [tesla] tesla cross post
- the following is pretty kooky. I'm no expert on Tesla, but I wasn't aware
he didn't accept the limit of C.
Check out this link that appeared on Elf-Rad just yesterday...
It's about an invention just last year that can supposedly broadcast RF
signals at faster than light speed.
BTW, Einstein also accepted that there is a faster-than-light speed, whether
he admitted it or not. He stated that energy is equal to mass times the
square of the speed of light. The values for energy and mass are thus
related by the acceleration of light at the rate of 186,000 miles per second
per second. If there could truly NOT be a faster than 186,000 miles per
second, then how could energy be related to mass times the acceleration of
Tesla believed that there is an ether and that the ether was continually
expanding at a very rapid rate. Ether is not light, it is the media in
which light propogates. My view is that the universe would have to be
continually expanding in order to continually pump energy into the universe
to keep it vibrating. If electrons are both waves and particles and have
mass, then their oscillations would be damped if there were no constant
power source and the universe would simply evaporate into nothing. Yet
electrons have continuous oscillations and remain near absolutely constant,
so far, over 15 billion years. Electrons must be getting their constant
power source from somewhere and the ether is the best candidate.
Keep in mind, "continually expanding" of the ether does not mean time or
space are necessarily expanding. I'm referring specifically to the ether,
the media of what time, space and light are observed in. If the ether is
expanding at a constant acceleration, all elements of time, space and light
will appear to be relatively constant. The fact that the physical universe
(time and space) is also expanding is due to the observed effects of mass
