      From PowerPedia:Tesla's Dynamic Theory of Gravity, with my comments:

      Einstein and relativity
      As an alternative to Einstein's general relativity (the original relativity theory came from R. Boscovich, [1711-1787]), the Dynamic Theory of Gravity explained the fields of gravity through electrodynamics. Tesla stated that there was no energy in matter other than that received from its environment: he did not accept the mass-energy equivalence as delineated by special relativity. Tesla rejected this concept from Einstein, as the special relativity theory's principles ignored gravitional effects.

      **ME: All very moot point, Einstein's general relativity theory deals with things that Einstein's special relativity theory does not deal with. I wonder if Tesla was aware of general relativity, it was considering gravity which special relativity ignored.

      One must keep in mind that Einstein was involved with aether theories of the time (one of his first papers was titled, "The Investigation of the State of Aether in Magnetic Fields"). He had access to patents and documentation as he worked as a library clerk at the Swiss patent office since 1902 and undoubtly gave more than a good look at them, before the Relativistic theory popped up for the second time (the original being the theory of Boscovich). Einstein himself said,

      "The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources".
      Einstein has been accused more than once (even recently) of plagiarizing other people's work without giving them any credit (and working at the patent office early in his career gave him plenty of sources). Aether is the "ultimate" medium (Tesla often interchanged the term "medium" with "aether") - being a perfect fluid and transporting independent carriers. Tesla said that electromagnetic radiation was propagated "like sound waves in the ether".

      **ME: Plagiarizing claims seem unprovable, and Einstein was allowed in his published science papers to not have to cite sources for the ideas he used; conditions in science papers were different in his era from ours, what he was allowed to get away with, modern scientists would not be allowed. Also in the World war II Einstein was working on electromagnetic weapons, and so at that time would have been familiar with Tesla's work; this would have influenced Einstein's work on unified field theory; but unfortunately due to the need to keep secrets not all of that information has been revealed.

      Note: the connection of Boscovich to Tesla.
