It’s no secret that the occult has been a tremendous influence in science, although very “hush hush”, it has had profound impact on scientific thinking. To think that it hasn’t is to look at the evidence in the face and deny outright.
Let us examine some of the works and beliefs of some of our greatest minds and you will see how spirituality and the occult has affected the minds of influential people, thus shaping society in a subtle and subversive way.
Nikola Tesla was born in Croatia to Serbian parents and credits much of his influence towards science and his engineering affinity to his mother. He was the 4th born of his parents 5 children. Though many of his accomplishments and discoveries can be discovered through internet research I want to touch on what was it that drove his curiosity. It is rumored that spirituality played a significant role in his way of thinking which led to his discoveries as he embarked on this journey of experimentation.
I want to share some of Tesla’s quotes so you see what I’m talking about.
The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” -Nikola Tesla
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla
“What one man calls God, another calls the laws of physics.” – Nikola Tesla
You’re going to tell me this is a man that is merely thinking in terms of emprical science and hard cold evidence to substantiate the non-physical? Here Tesla again speaking of the Aether “All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or tenuity beyond conception, filling all space, the akasha or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never-ending cycles all things and phenomena.”– Nikola Tesla, Man’s Greatest Achievement, 1907 (1)(2)
Vedic Philosophy, which in turn influenced Western Occultism such as Rosicrucianism, The Order of the Golden Dawn and many more mystery schools has also influenced science. Einstein was also no stranger to this as well. Continuing on Tesla, his inventions and fanciful, and futuristic ideas you see are largely derived from Vedic teachings.
Nikola Tesla was in correspondence with Swami Vivekananda. Look at this quote here.
“Mr. Tesla thinks he can demonstrate mathematically that force and matter are reducible to potential energy. I am to go and see him next week to get this new mathematical demonstration. In that case the Vedantic cosmology will be placed on the surest of foundations. I am working a good deal now upon the cosmology and eschatology of the Vedanta. I clearly see their perfect union with modern science, and the elucidation of the one will be followed by that of the other.” – Swami Vivekananda (Complete Works, VOL. V, Fifth Edition, 1347, p. 77).
Nikola Tesla understood the idea of an unlimited resource of energy known to the eastern spiritual traditions as Prana or Akasha. The idea of Prana is that it is the life force energy that makes up the entirety of the universe, including what we perceive as inanimate matter. Tesla understood this and all Vedantic teachings on the life force energy which formulated the basis for his experimentation on free and unlimited energy. He built machines around this concept of harnessing this energy and releasing it into the world. Thus, the Tesla coil, which you can do your own research on at anytime concerning it.
Quantum physics is even on board with the Vedantic philosophy of a unified field of energy accessible at anytime. The yogi’s used the spiritual technology of meditation and other spiritual disciplines to access the Prana, but Tesla used his scientific, physics, and engineering knowledge to construct devices that could easily harness this power. Now, there are people everywhere furthering the work of Tesla. Even children in their pre-teen years building coils and unlimited energy mechanisms reminiscent to that of Tesla’s coil. I have a good friend of mine that introduced me to all this. He has company and is working on some innovative inventions that will revolutionize his industry. He hasn’t put anything out yet, but here is his business website www.plumbersofhollywood.com
