"The system of arranging introductory etheric impulses by compound chords set by differential harmonies is one that the world of science has never recognized. Beyond disintegration lies dispersion, and it is as easy to disperse as to disintegrate."
His first system requires introductory mediums of differential gravities air as one, and water as the other, to disturb equilibrium and liberate the etheric vapor. This subdivision only reaches the interatomic position and the "atomic and molecular leads" were submerged in the Generator he then used. He could not go beyond the atomic with his instrument and could not dispense with water until the Liberator was invented. In his first system he did not reach full maximum line of vibration. His first system embraced Generator, Engine and Gun.
His second system he considered complete as far as liberation of the ether is concerned but was not perfected so as to assure safety to the operator. His sundry devices for indicating and governing the vibratory etheric circuit also left much to be desired.
His third system embraced aerial and submarine navigation. He was then completing an experimental sphere intended to test the combination of the positive and negative in rotary action. [DISINTEGRATION OF MATTER - THREE SYSTEMS]
"There are ample writings acknowledging that there is unlimited energy in the Universe, but to say one is able to tap this supply is another matter. If I tell you there is water, good cold water, in a glass on your table, but you cannot drink it for a million years, what would you think? You know how to get the water out of a glass. Well, it is as easy to tap this energy now out in space at it will be in a million years from now. If it can be done then, it can be done now.
For me to go into a technical account of how to harness this energy, would mean the writing of volumes. The whole thing might be said in the few words of Nikola Tesla: "Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic?
If static our hopes are in vain; if kinetic and this we know it is for certain, then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature.
This I have been able to do through the use of certain valves and oscillators that I have made and of which doctors of science have said are the most powerful devices known to science today. When an elastic substance is subjected to strain and then set free, one of two things happens. The substance may slowly recover from the strain and gradually attain its natural state, or the elastic recoil may carry it past its position of equilibrium and cause it to execute a series of oscillations. In ordinary language there may be a continuous flow of energy in one direction until the discharge is completed, or an oscillating discharge may occur.
That is, the first flow may be succeeded by a back-rush, as if the first discharge had overrun itself and something like a recoil set in. The device thus becomes more or less charged again in the opposite sense, and a second discharge occurs accompanied by a second back-rush, the oscillations going on until the energy is either radiated or used up in the heating of the conductors. And if your device will oscillate in harmony with the oscillations of the Universe, or in other words, if the device is capable of synchronization with the vibrations of that energy through space, them the oscillations will go on forever. No one can call such an arrangement perpetual motion any more than one can call the motion of the earth perpetual motion.
My device oscillates because of the oscillations of the Universe caused by the disintegration of matter." [Nikola Tesla]
