From Nikola Tesla’s Autobiography

Nikola Tesla was a gift to our humanity from Venus. He was the world’s greatest inventor, a pioneer, blazing the trail. He had patents for 1,200 inventions, including operating a car without any fuel. Tesla wrote an autobiography which was given to Arthur H. Matthews.

Matthews might have been the son of a helper to Lord Kelvin. He included Tesla’s autobiography in his book, The Wall of Light. Nikola Tesla was born between July 9, 1856 and July 10, 1856 on a UFO and was given to a good family in Serbia. I believe that Arthur H. Matthews was the illegitimate son of Tesla. They look alike. Tesla admitted that abstinence was not always to his liking.

Tesla helped Matthews to build an instrument on Matthew’s property in Canada that would alert him to the arrival of a spaceship from Venus. In his autobiography, Tesla referred to his father, who was an orthodox Serbian priest, as his ‘earth’ father. Tesla knew he was from Venus.

The Venus Connection and Other Mental Abilities

Tesla was lovable and very loving, without any trace of arrogance. He admitted that he laughed at a joke a year later, when he got its meaning. He was a poet, and like his earth Father, knew entire books by heart, word for word. While walking with his friend in the city park, he recited a passage in German of Goethe’s Faust. Then the idea came like a flash of lightning and he saw the images of the invention of his motor. Literature and art were a source of joy and exhilaration. His great joy came from reading books.

Until he was eight years of age, he said his character was weak and vacillating. Then he read a novel entitled “Aoafi.” It awakened his dormant powers of will. When he practiced self-control, he experienced a pleasure never known before. Using the mind to create was not work. It was joy.

By the time he was 11, he had read all the books in his father’s vast library. One time, when he was recovering from an illness, he read the early books of Mark Twain. When he met Mr. Clement, he informed him of his illness and his recovery through reading his book. He was touched that Clement, that great man, had tears in his eyes.

Tesla’s Childhood Illnesses and Divine Intervention

Tesla had three life-threatening illnesses; he almost drowned a dozen times; was nearly boiled alive and just missed being cremated. He was entombed, lost and frozen. He had a nervous breakdown wherein his hearing was so acute that the landing of a fly caused a dull thud on his ear. We cannot imagine what torture he went through.

After he contracted cholera, he was in bed for nine months. He was convinced that his preservation was the work of divine power. Many times, he was completely exhausted by pain from overwork. His Mother had him study the bible, from which he derived inspiration for his inventions.

His father insisted that he enter the clergy. This deeply distressed him. He wanted to become an engineer. When he was ill, he told his father that if he allowed him to become an engineer, he would get well. His father readily consented and sent him to the best schools and universities. Tesla was conversant also in German, French and Italian.

A Childhood Affliction that Lingered

In boyhood, he suffered from an affliction which contributed to his late awakening. He never knew he was an inventor until he was an adult. Images (of ordinary things and scenes) would appear accompanied by strong flashes of light, which marred the sight of real objects. He was unable to distinguish whether what he saw was tangible or not. He could not banish the image or scene.

To free himself from these tormenting images he continuously conjured up new images. Then he saw new scenes which were at first indistinct. Every night he would see new cities and countries. He would live there and make friendships. Tesla said, however unbelievable, they were just as dear to him as those in actual life. (He had continuity of consciousness. I believe it was the soul that was experiencing these things. -MDB)

He was 12 when he succeeded in banishing an image from his vision by willful effort, but he had no explanation for the strong flashes of light. They usually occurred when he was in danger or greatly exhilarated. Sometimes all the air around him filled with tongues of living flame.

They attained a maximum when he was about 25 years old. The flashes of light protected him from harm. The incessant mental exertion developed his powers of observation. He said that these experiences helped him when he was older, to visualize with facility.

Tesla’s Special Self-willed Youth

As a child, he did not believe that he was special. When he was six years old the family moved into the city of Gospic. Seeing the city dudes and strange people from his window in the new house, was so terrifying that he said, he would rather have faced a roaring lion. His hardest trial came on Sunday when he had to attend the service. He was that bashful!

Nikola Tesla was self-willed as a youth. He thoroughly enjoyed gambling with cards. No reproach from his father could induce him to stop. He believed he had willpower to stop whenever he wished. It was his mother who gave him a roll of bills and said: “Enjoy your gambling, until you ruin us.” He stopped immediately. He said that his mother was the inventor and came from a family of inventors: Her father and grandfather were inventors. She understood him and he loved her dearly.

When he came to the United States he worked for Thomas Edison, whom he admired. He worked from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. He did not complain. When Edison’s Manager did not compensate him for his many inventions, as he said he would, he quit.

Niagara Falls and Many Outstanding Inventions

When he was a child he admired a picture of the Niagara Falls. He told his uncle that someday he would harness that power with a wheel. He did so thirty years later with his alternating polyphase current system of electricity. Without this system, the giant steam-electric power plants in our big cities and the big hydroelectric projects such as TVA, Boulder Dam, Grand Coulee, would be impossible.

His inventions included, lasers, radio, fluorescent lighting, radar, robots, electric motors, wireless communication, free energy, remote control, x-rays, and many others. It is not true that he died as a pauper. He was a millionaire and lived at the Hotel New Yorker. Towards the end of his life he received payment of an honorarium by the Yugoslav government as patron of the Tesla Institute in Belgrade. It was enough to sustain him.

He never demanded compensation from those who stole his inventions. His joy was to help humanity. The Space Brothers from Venus visited Tesla before he died. Tesla gave them the autobiography, which they were to give to Arthur Matthews.
