"The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all previous centuries of its existence."  ---Nikola Tesla


Does anyone know what Nikola Tesla means by this statement? Can it be interpreted to mean spiritual or metaphysical reality?

I think it means exactly that when science studies the spiritual side of our existence it will make more progress.

I would say that it encourages real objectivity.

Each of us has a left and right brain. We think of learning by using our logical mind. We think of creative expression by using our intuitive mind.

Once we learn to balance these attributes, blend them, and use them together, we will step into another dimention of understanding.

I think kind of both. It depends on what you mean by "spiritual". Spiritual as a metaphysical reality transcendental of our universe or the nature of such entities shown possibly?

Without time, there can be no change. Time "exists" as an essential property of space, so we must conclude for something to be here there must always have been something. Time is not a property of "nothing" (how could it be?) so 'something' must have existed for the universe to have been 'created' from. It would seem infinite regression indeed exists.

I wish I knew what Tesla meant, but I figure he actually referred to ethereal. Started studying Tesla's work for my MSc. thesis 15 years ago hoping to recreate his zero point energy. Much of what is published today is incorrect on the technical side, because of (insert oil industry, government, illuminati conspiracy theories here...)... Regardless, I still poke around even today in my retirement spare time. Kind of my own search for the Holy Grail original.gif

It means Spirit, when science includes spirit and Love in its equasions, it will make leaps and bounds.

I think it refers to phenomena of the mind.  Things like remote viewing, ESP, telekinesis, etc.  I really don't see any reference to spirituality.  Just phenomena of the human mind.

Beauty has no imperfections.  Only perfect and beautiful imperfections.

It is a fool who looks for logic in the human imagination.  However, when that imagination leaves the mind, it is fair game.

Sag!ttarius is most likely correct in that this is a quote in reference to aether or ether. It has nothing to do with the spiritual, metaphysical, or paranormal.

Science cannot, by definition, study "non-physical" phenomena.

Tesla - an engineer, not really a scientist - was a raving lunatic in his later years.  That quote likely comes from that period of his life.

Yes It would be nice to think Science is done at the physical level, Thats not true though, Try telling that to the other races which live in our universe who have attained faster than light travel/ speed.
And have visited us from other Galaxies/ Universes . Science will study Spirit, and it will change The way science is Experienced.

Many theoretical physicists are convinced that spacetime and energy are not the main things composed in the fabric of reality.

Okay.  Care to introduce me to a member of such a "race?"
