Comment Re:Tesla (not the car company) (Score 2) 108

Of course what little we know about his work is also part speculation, so I consider Tesla's esoteric & unrealized works a mere curiosity. Meanwhile, the tinfoil hat crowd takes any rumor of Tesla's success as if it were written in stone by divine actor(s) and delivered to Moses on a mountain. It's all somewhat paradoxical; on the one hand he developed real-world, usable tech like alternating current motors and generators, while on the other hand claiming that he knew these things because he could tap into a universal, ethereal body of knowledge that exists in another dimension. You have to take his work seriously while still being aware that the man was possibly quite mad.
