July of every year brings a symbolic celebration of freedom in America during July 4th, Independence Day. Following just days after Independence Day this year, and replacing the boom and brilliance of fireworks with the crackle and flash of electrical sparks, are the third annual Tesla Science Conference and TeslaFest held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
It is a fitting tribute to the great inventor that this conference and celebration, which is also the occasion of Tesla’s 155th birthday, symbolizes a growing recognition of the need for real alternatives to fossil fuels.
“All peoples everywhere should have free energy sources. Electric power is everywhere present in unlimited quantities and can drive the world’s machinery without the need for coal, oil or gas.” - Nikola Tesla (1856-1943)
The conference, hosted by the nonprofit Tesla Science Foundation and spanning four days from July 7th to 10th, offered a balanced mix of presentations, some historical, some theoretical, and some demonstrations. Panel discussions also occurred on the second and third day, including the presenters from each day.
Saturday and Sunday visitors to the conference were treated to a host of intriguing topics. Fran McCabe did a demonstration of his work using gyroscopic precession as a means of propulsion. Stoyan Sarg delivered two excellent presentations dealing with aspects of his unification theory of gravity. Russ Anderson of Applied Electrogravitics demonstrated a high voltage ‘Lifter’ device, and discussed some theoretical aspects of how it works to produce its effect. A discussion panel broke some common ground in the understanding of exotic forms of propulsion.
The awards ceremony and dinner was held Saturday night at the Ethical Society in Rittenhouse Square. Doctor of Physics, Dr. Michael Pravica delivered an inspiring keynote speech, aimed to stoke interest and active participation in science following the example of Tesla as a paragon of discovery and invention. The Divine Hand Ensemble, an 8-person classical music group featuring violinists, harpists and a Theremin player, awed all in attendance with their performance. Their excellent renditions of the Willy Wonka theme and the Star Trek theme were particular highlights of the performance.
The TeslaFest public celebration held on the lawn of Independence National Park across the street from Independence Hall, gave visitors a chance to hear dance music in a beautiful outdoor setting, pick up Tesla Club T-shirts and buttons, and learn more about the Tesla Science Foundation. The night of Saturday July 9th featured a demonstration of a Tesla coil and a ‘musical spark gap,’ a type of coil through which music can be played.
The highlight of the night was the crowd singing Happy Birthday to Tesla at midnight, followed by a reading of the TSF’s Energy Independence Declaration by Mark Passio, a TSF member and founder of the Internet radio station What On Earth Is Happening.
The last day of the conference saw an intriguing presentation by Nelson Lim-Chua, which included a demonstration of wireless transmission of electrical power and discussed the properties of resonance, an important factor in wireless power and in the tuning of Tesla coils.
Ana Petrovic presented her findings with her healing work, showing photos of the similarities between the field of a Tesla coil and a field which could be seen around her hands during a healing session, as seen by a special type of camera known as PIP.
The Sunday night festivities included a performance by electronic artist Psyncus and several DJ’s on the Independence lawn, which brought the weekend to a nice closing.
The Tesla Science Foundation and Tesla Inventors Club are sister organizations which promote the important works of preserving the memory of Nikola Tesla, and of furthering research into gravity, propulsion, basic physics and development of clean energy sources.
I would like to thank Nikola Lonchar, Milada Bijelic, David Rosignoli and George Burden of the Tesla Science Foundation, Michael Riversong of the Tesla Academy, and Dr. Michael Pravica, for their hard work in running this conference and their accomodation of the guests of the conference. I am of the opinion that if Tesla were alive today, he would certainly commend their efforts. But they cannot do it alone, and the more help they receive from those of us who can lend our assistance, the better.
If you are involved in theoretical or experimental research related to high voltage, propulsion, communications, power distribution, and new renewable energy sources, the Tesla Science Foundation wants YOU! The next meeting of the Tesla Inventors Club will occur in March of next year, and presenters are actively being sought now for this event. If you feel you have something to share, please feel free to contact the Foundation.
