Mr. J.Q., a regular reader here, sent me the following article while I was away at the conference, and this one is definitely a story to watch, for according to the article, two Russians, Mr. Leonid Plekhanov and Mr. Sergey Plekhanov, both graduates of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, are planning to use crowd funding to finance the construction of a (presumably smaller) version of Nikola Tesla's famous Wardenclyffe wireless electrical power transmitter:

Russian Scientists Plan to Rebuild Tesla's Wireless Electricity Tower

Most readers here are probably familiar with the story about Tesla's Wardenclyffe project, and how allegedly J.P. Morgan "pulled the plug" on the project once he learned what it was really about. According to one somewhat apocryphal version of the story, Morgan was concerned that the project "could not be metered" and hence he stood to lose not only money but power, and hence stopped his funding of Tesla's vision. But as I've pointed out in various interviews, I've long suspected this story is somewhat "too convenient" as an explanation. After all, Morgan stood to gain a fortune from the royalty and licensing agreements on the project just from its possible use in appliances using Tesla's system. The real concern, as I averred in Babylon's Banksters, was that the system could potentially be weaponized, an implication that Tesla himself hinted at in various articles he composed at the same approximate time as his disputes with Morgan. But the idea itself, as MIT recently demonstrated, is not impossible, as they recently performed such an experiment on a small scale successfully.

So what are we to make of the announcement of the two Plekhanovs? One might expect that such a system would be as much of a challenge to the Russian energy oligarchy as it was to the Western one in Morgan's time, and that some effort might be made to stop it. One suspects this is the reason for their reliance upon crowd funding.

The announcement, however, comes at a time that wider geopolitical interests are at stake, and at a time that Russian leaders and scientists are making strange statements. Consider only Dmitri Medvedev's statement a month before Chelyabinsk that Russia should cooperate in the construction of a planetary asteroid defense system(shades of the Von Braun-Rosin affidavit!). Then there was the strange USS Donald Cook incident, where a Russian Sukhoi fighter bomber demonstrated a jamming capability of the USA's most sophisticated naval radar-missile defense system. To top all this off, Dr. Evgeny Podkletnov, whose work in the anti-gravity properties of super-conductors is fairly well-known, made assertions that the Russians were experimenting with an "anti-gravity pulse beam" which could "disintegrate" objects at a distance of a kilometer, with an alleged range of the beam being 200km.

But we need to ask ourselves an important question: why would MIT perform a "proof-of-concept" experiment in the wireless transmission of power now, demonstrating a concept and a basic technology that was suppressed over a century ago? And why would two Russians openly announce their intentions to do so, and to fund it with crowd financing? One answer looms: today, the mechanism of global surveillance is in place, a capability that could, conceivably, serve to monitor any attempt to weaponize such a technology and cut it off before it could be accomplished. The monitoring infrastructure exists now, as it did not then, and hence, such a technology might be considered to be more acceptable. Additionally, such a step might be heralding a change in the global financial system, as the old one is slowly being torn down, and a new one erected. And the BRICSA nations have made it very clear that they intend to challenge the US dollar's reserve currency status.

In such a context, the announcement of the Plekhanovs might be serving open notice that Russia intends to change the game in a rather dramatic fashion, for such a power system, if it could be made to work, would challenge the reigning petro-dollar paradigm, and that, of course, is now openly admitted to be a strategic goal of the BRICSA nations. The bottom line here folks is this this is, on its own, a "small" story, but in the wider context, and over the long term, it's one to watch carefully...

...that is, if Russia is obliging, and lets the world know how it progresses.

See you on the flip side...

    My take when having read this article was that the main reason it could even get this far is the growing sense in the intelligensia around the world that the control system has reached the point of inflection.

    As the internet pulls back the blanket of lies and the world economy crumbles and along along with it the pretense of the rule of law and actual control, and as the self-proclaimed controllers attempt to clamp down on everything, everywhere, the smart people see that there actually is a power vaccuum that has been created as the old order thrashes about and lashes out in its death-throes.

    People are beginning to become fearless: the controllers are starting to be simply ignored and blatantly challenged. This is a fundamentally subversive move: when you’ve got nothing left to lose, it creates a certain freedom. And it sure helps to turn the tables and deftly use the controller’s ace-in-the-hole, publicity and mass communication, against them. Apparently, 100 years later, Tesla’s time may really be in the offing, for all of us. Let’s all fervently hope so.

    The reason might be more simple than we think. Maybe it is like this. Maybe Russia has been kept in the dark by a cosmic international military force. Maybe the rabbit has escaped the rabbit hole. Maybe leaks have spread to Russia about the kind of dominance played on the world by this cosmic international military force. Maybe there is an agenda going on to free us all, where Tesla’s invention is part of it all. What we at least can conclude is that great people with great intensions are in Russia right now. Maybe we are talking about a planet that is being saved – our own, our home. See you on the flip side Joseph! 🙂

      BTW. Please note the recent official warning to Russia from the US about Edward Snowden. I’m telling you, it’s all connected and you my friend are collecting the dots very well! 🙂

    That’s certainly one way to get around those “disappeared” U.S. patents of Tesla’s. Maybe more to come?

    Lets put a end to the weaponizing meme I could kill anybody with a dull bread or butter knife. All I have to do drive it through one of your eyes or down your throat. My high school history teacher told how by roll up a sheet of paper tightly and strike a person temples you could kill them. I point out these examples to show the line between weapon and nonweapon is nonexistent. The Tesla Power Tower boils down to one word slavery the real bottom line our oligarchs are bound hand and foot to this addiction.

    Here is a nice “Tesla” facility (abandoned) that could be “refurbished” for use… not need to build from scratch!

      Cool photos, but that may not be capable of wireless transmission of energy for hundreds of miles. Though the tower is suggestive, with what looks to be large diameter coils of shallow depth.

      What is commonly thought of as a Tesla coil isn’t.

  6. Robert Barricklow on July 9, 2014 at 10:43 am just put out a story that says 9/11 was an inside job & now this. So the GMOs, zero point energies, 9/11 disclosures? But the 9/11 disclosure is couched in a perspective of let it happen/NOT made it happen; let alone drilled down to what most here at this site know. So the “truths” are going to be a mixed-bag of real & virtual. A Hitchcock McGuffin, if you will, where the middleman is still in the mix – to centralize. The pyramid of power requires it. Decentralization is power’s enemy. Like Bitcoin is to a central bank’ currency; taking the middle man out.
    But it is a step in the right direction.
    A BIG Step at that.

    It ought not be forgotten that Russia has just this past May committed to a $400 billion, thirty-year deal to provide its natural gas to China and still maintains similar contractual obligations to Europe. This would not, of course, preclude a mutually-agreed-upon cancellation of the natural gas contracts, in favor of new wireless energy contracts.

    But if we accept for the sake of argument that the increased surveillance cited by Dr. Farrell that might theoretically prevent the weaponization of this or any other new, old technology, must we not also posit that such surveillance would also prevent the Tesla technology from any monopolization by Russia, should it be proven so publicly to be viable? In other words, once the free-energy cat were out of this black bag, what country wouldn’t rush out to find its own such cat?

    Is Mother Russia really so noble as to forego her promised $400 billion in order to selflessly lead the world into the new Tesla century? Or is Russia perhaps once again appealing to on-the-fence nations to join the BRICSA alliance by demonstrating that the American PsTB are not, or will not long remain, in sole possession of these terrible yet inevitable technologies?

      Daryl Davis:

      It’s not at all clear that a Tesla wireless energy transmission system is over unity.

      Possibly yes.

      Certainly more efficient.

    Wow, Tesla could become the most important inventor of the 21st century..

      Great comment!

    Let’s hope this is more credible than the “Donald Cook” claims which read like standard cold war propaganda–from either side.

    This is indeed a different form of power transmission, not necessarily generation though. I’m sure it’s already been weaponized.

    I wonder if Eric Dollard was consulted by the MIT types? Probably not.

    Funny that you just posted this. I was actually going to ask you what you thought about this from a technical perspective. The reason why… is because this Leonid Plekhanov guy sent me a friend request this week on Facebook via another friend of mine.

    I’m on the fence about this… I read through all the technical papers they linked on their kickstarter page to get a better understanding of the concept they are proposing…

    It seems to me that they are approaching the tower from a standard classical physics mindset, and not from the Tesla mindset. They seem to be missing several really crucial and essential Tesla concepts from their circuit model, which can be seen in their description of how the tower will be “grounded” to the earth.

    As you referenced in Babylon’s Banksters, Tesla stated in print that “his circuit parameters were diametrically the opposite of a standard “radio” arrangement, for in this instance, the relationship of ground and transmitter were turned on their heads, the earth, normally the ground in an electrical circuit, became the transmitter and conductive medium, and the atmosphere, normally the conductive medium, became the ground. Moreover, in this new arrangement, the waves were not Hertzian at all, but impulses; that is to say, they were longitudinal waves of stress, of compression and rarefaction, in the earth itself.”

    I don’t get the sense that they’ve factored that concept of atmosphere being the ground into their design at all. They also seem to be forgetting about how some percentage of the “machine” is UNDERGROUND. The visible tower above ground may just be the tip of the iceberg of what’s going on with the function of the machine. As Tesla stated, they were digging down 120 ft and then had 16 iron pipes drilled out in various directions 300 ft into the bedrock.

    Just like you quoted (from Tesla) in Babylon’s Banksters, “You see the underground work is one of the most expensive parts of the tower. In this system that I have invented it is necessary for the machine to get a grip of the earth, otherwise it cannot shake the earth. It has to have a grip on the earth so that the whole of this globe can quiver, the current through these pipes takes hold of the earth. It’s absolutely necessary, this underground work belongs to the tower.”

    I get no sense that these two physicists have any inkling of this essential underground component as part of their design thinking, they are just looking at what the above ground portion (the tesla coil portion) is doing. So, yeah, this leads me to think that they really don’t have a full grasp on what Tesla was trying to do… it might just be a publicity stunt or like you are suggesting, something more political in nature. Who knows. I would love to give them the benefit of the doubt, but I just don’t see it in their technical papers thus far.

    Perhaps they really do know, but they are just not expressing the working details in this publicized kickstarter documents.

    Either way… I am going to accept his friend request and will see if I can get a few more details straight from the source…
