I found this interesting missive, which seems to be a "channeling" by Nikola Tesla. I don't know what y'all think of channelings, but wow, this fit's what had already been said in this thread. (life is funny that way)
10/30/97 NIKOLA TESLA
Good evening. Tesla here for a moment, in response to Rick's request for input. I come in the Light of the One wherefrom does originate ALL creativity! My, my, have we not chosen, Rick, a topic that steps on many, many toes among your Elite, by efforting to expose the facade and sham of your so-called patent or creative-idea "protection" system.
I was not always as aware of what was actually going on as I became in my later years upon your place. Indeed, in my younger days in your United States, I fell victim to many of the traps set into place by those whose purpose it was to thoroughly control and capture, for their own use, any Lighted Creativity streaming into the planet.
The dark controllers are very much aware of their own creative limitations. They also realize that this is due to their own choosing of the dark path. But that does not stop these amoral ones from robbing YOU of YOUR creative output--usually without you even suspecting such a thing is occurring.
In fact, it has always been the easiest of goals to fool the unsuspecting public, over and over again, by representing something as the EXACT OPPOSITE of its true purpose. You modern ones call this "putting spin" on an issue. Well, the dark ones are experts at this technique and the condition of your modern world is proof of what I mean.
Fortunately, I eventually learned, from the dark dealings of J.P. Morgan on my "behalf", how to circumvent their system of control--at least as best such could be accomplished upon your planet at the time. Now things are even worse, because the "nets" in place to capture Lighted Creativity are more elaborate and the population is more naive then ever before. This, of course, is due to the continued dumbing down of your population through your so-called "education" system, plus all of the other distractions that are thrown your way like carrots in front of a rabbit.
Meanwhile, the dark ones now control EVERY facet of your lives toward their own ends--which you may eventually suspect are NOT in YOUR best interests! Their control of the money-flow circuitry (a measure of energy flow) of your planet is perhaps their single greatest accomplishment, next to mind control itself.
It was a matter of my painful learning lessons to acquire the knowledge of how to hold onto "my own" creative accomplishments! My own? No! I quickly acknowledge that ALL indeed comes from Creator Source. Yet the important point most often overlooked by ones of Lighted intent is that it is incumbent upon the recipient of ANY such creative gifts--be they inventions or otherwise--to BE RESPONSIBLE FOR that which has been given unto them as conduit for sharing with their fellow planet-dwellers. I learned that lesson the hard way, too, in spades!
George Westinghouse was a Bright Light in a lake otherwise filled with piranhas. It is accurately documented in the best of biographies on my life that I tore up my contracts with him and gave up legal rights to a vast fortune. Why? Why not?!! Otherwise, the piranhas would have taken BOTH of us down in one banking maneuver! After all, WHO controls the banks?! All that was in my power to do was to give up the royalties of those contracts. Meanwhile, it was beyond the imagining capabilities of the dark ones to even conceive of THAT option as a possibility in the moves on the "chess board" they were playing with us, because such was so foreign to their materialistic way of thinking--that is, to so easily just relinquish such a vest means to physical wealth!
After much agonizing time spent studying the matter, I realized that the only way to responsibly handle the creative input bestowed upon me was to stay as far away from the likes of the Patent Office as possible. Things had to be handled as quietly as possible. Moreover, Morgan saw to it, through his stooges in the media, that a portrait be fabricated of me as an old "has been" who had "lost it"--to use the language of your modern era. I therefore exploited that maneuver on his part, with one of my own, wherein I could now justifiably keep a low profile without raising much curiosity. In effect, I employed, for my own privacy use, the very box they hoped would contain me.
It must be clearly understood now that much that I was working on was NOT understood, even by the so-called technical ones of that era. They were interpreting external effects (in the form of outwardly dazzling electrical phenomena) rather than appreciating underlying causes. I hesitate, even at this time, to go into greater detail about my actual work, other than to say your current use of same (some of which has been labeled as "scalar" technology today), by secret factions of the controlling Elite, is a source of great sadness for me and a situation I still feel a strong responsibility toward rectifying.
But let it be well understood that what even the most faithful of my admirers upon your place THINK were my accomplishments, comprised nowhere near the truth of the matter! I mention this only by way of framing the scope of that which your patent "protection" system would have liked to catch in their "fishing nets" for the exclusive use of and control by your so-called Elite would-be-kings. Your world operates upon an array of forces far different than what is taught, for the most part, in your science books. But then, WHO controls those publishing houses?!
This is a time when The Truth shall out in ALL areas. It is time that the public be made more directly aware of just what kind of machinery is actually in place to rob you Lighted Ones of the fruits of your direct connection with Creator Source. This is not to say that the Patent System in place now could not be what it is supposed to be, but I offer the question: "Can you ever write enough laws to force immoral ones to behave justly?" If a society has enough integrity for this planet as it proceeds into the "rock & roll" phase of its Great Transformation.
I take my leave now, in The Light of Creator Source. May you all realize your DIRECT connection to Source and tap that great gift toward the glorious upliftment of your planet! I and many others stand ready to assist you, if you but call upon us. We are more than happy to add our energies upon your request, for the call compels the answer--ALWAYS!
Tesla to clear.
