When the great truth accidentally revealed and experimentally confirmed is fully recognized, that this planet, with all its appalling immensity, is to electric currents virtually no more than a small metal ball and that by this fact many possibilities, each baffling imagination and of incalculable consequence, are rendered absolutely sure of accomplishment; when the first plant is inaugurated and it is shown that a telegraphic message, almost as secret and non-interferable as a thought, can be transmitted to any terrestrial distance, the sound of the human voice, with all its intonations and inflections, faithfully and instantly reproduced at any other point of the globe, the energy of a waterfall made available for supplying light, heat or motive power, anywhere on sea, or land, or high in the air humanity will be like an ant heap stirred up with a stick: See the excitement coming!

When

the

great

truth

accidentally

revealed

and

experimentally

confirmed

is

fully

recognized



that

this

planet



with

all

its

appalling

immensity



is

to

electric

currents

virtually

no

more

than

a

small

metal

ball

and

that

by

this

fact

many

possibilities



each

baffling

imagination

and

of

incalculable

consequence



are

rendered

absolutely

sure

of

accomplishment



when

the

first

plant

is

inaugurated

and

it

is

shown

that

a

telegraphic

message



almost

as

secret

and

non

interferable

as

a

thought



can

be

transmitted

to

any

terrestrial

distance



the

sound

of

the

human

voice



with

all

its

intonations

and

inflections



faithfully

and

instantly

reproduced

at

any

other

point

of

the

globe



the

energy

of

a

waterfall

made

available

for

supplying

light



heat

or

motive

power



anywhere



on

sea



or

land



or

high

in

the

air



humanity

will

be

like

an

ant

heap

stirred

up

with

a

stick:

See

the

excitement

coming



Nikola

Tesla



 Good Luck!
