Tesla got a wild idea for time travel, so he tried to create a time machine.
Nikola Tesla was a unique researcher during the 19th century. In 1895 Tesla had his first finding that time and space actually could be influenced by the usage of magnetic fields.
Such a revelation came through from experimentation on the end of Tesla with radio frequencies and power transmissions through the atmosphere. This research of Tesla’s led to the infamous Philadelphia Project as well as time travel projects.
Before that project coming about, Tesla was finding amazing content in regard to time, space and the possibility of time travel. With the usage of these magnetic fields, Tesla found out that time and space could be violated or accessed by creating a door that could lead to a different time.
Despite this amazing discovery, Tesla showed full awareness that time travel was no joke just to tamper with. One entry the future could completely alter and destroy the present timeline. Tesla’s first experimentation of time travel took place in March of 1895. One reporter said that they found Tesla at a small cafe, but he looked quite shaken and apparently had just taken 3.5 million volts of his body. The voltage almost killed Tesla on the spot, but his assistant stopped the power of the machine from taking his life.
Despite almost dying, he said that he found himself in an entirely different atmosphere and time window. Tesla said that he was capable of seeing the past, present and future all at the same time while being entangled in this magnetic field. Despite being able to see all of this he found he was paralyzed from all the power the wattage was doing to his body, which led to his assistant turning off the time machine.
The very same actions would end up occurring during the Philadelphia Project. However the results of that experiment turned out to be quite disastrous.
Perhaps the reasoning for Tesla nearly dying from experimenting is that humans are not meant to alter any forms of time and that accepting reality for what it is is the best option.
