Nicolas Tesla met Swami Vivekanaka at the 1893 the Chicago Worlds Fair. He became very interested in the knowledge of the Swami about the Kalpas (the Cycles), Prana (the Breath of Life) and the Akasha (Space).
Tesla used the Old Indian Science to explain his Electro-Magnetic Experiments.
The talks with Viveknaka helped him to understand what happened during his experiments with Electro-Magnetic Plasma. Tesla recognized that all perceptible matter comes from a primary substance filling all space called the Akasha. At the end of his life he formulated the Dynamic Theory of Gravity. Instead of the term Akasha he used the Greek version of the Akasha called Aether.
The term Aether was used by the Greek to describe the fifth state of the Universe (the quintessence). The other states are called Water (Jala, Liquid), Fire (Agni, Plasma), Earth (Pritvhi, Solid) and Air (Vayu, Gas). The five elements are used in every ancient culture all over the world.
Michelson and Morley tried to measure the effect (the friction) of the Aether in 1887. The negative result of the experiments was totally not expected. After the experiments, the concept of the Aether was abandoned. Space (the Vacuum) was empty.
The Speed of Light became the Maximum Speed, a universal constant and a dogma of science. In essence the experiments did not tell anything about the Speed of Light outside the context of the Earth.
The maximum speed created many problems when Quantum Mechanics showed strange effects between two Very Distant places in the Universe. The solution for this problem was to define a “shortcut“, “tiny (black) holes” in Space. The interesting point is that the Akasha in the Old Indian Science at the (lowest) physical plane was represented as a cluster of very small holes or bubbles (Mulaprakriti).
At this moment the concept of the Aether is on its return and the Speed of Light seems to be variable. The speed is dependent on the “phase” or density of the Aether. There are really five (!) types of Aether. This was already discovered by Tesla when he experimented with Radiant Energy.
The old Indian Science helped Tesla to understand the theory behind his experiments. If you have a close look at the theory of Tesla and the old
Indian Science you will find that it contains much more knowledge and this knowledge is slowly proved to be right. One of the most interesting parts of Old Indian Science are the Levels in the Universe.
In the West we are trying to explain everything on one level, the Material Level. In the East, the Universe contains Seven Levels or Seven Rays. They are the enfolding of the Creative Force that Knows Itself.
The old Scientists did not need very expensive experiments to find out how the Universe was “working”. They travelled to the inside of their “minds” to find the outside.
One of the things they are telling is that we are at the end of the Kali Yuga (“the dark Age“). This phase in the human existence is caused by a very long cycle where our Sun is moving around his twin star (The Dark Star, Sirius). The period of this cycle is about 24.000 years and related to the precession of the equinoxes.
At the end of the dark part of the cycle, we will see a breakdown of the idea of a material world and a growing consciousness of the underlying unity of peoples, energy, and nature. Almost everybody is hoping this time will come soon.
