A Forecast of Prophesy by Nikola Tesla

June 29th, 1907

Following is an extract from a prophesy by Nikola Tesla on the possibilities of electrical science, as published recently in the New York World.

“Very soon it will be possible to talk across the ocean as clearly and distinctly as across the table. Wireless transmission of speech will be merely the fore runner of over so much more important development, which will proceed at a furious pace until the waterfalls can be focussed wherever desired; until the air is conquered, the soil fructified and embellished; until, in all departments of human life, distance has lost its meaning, and even the immense gulf separating us from other worlds is bridged.

“If but the half of Tesla’s prophesy finds fulfillment” exclaims the Omaha World Herald, “What a world our children will live in.”

What a world, indeed. Yet, what a world do not we, our fathers’ children, live in, compared with the one they knew. Yet life is much the same, whether we ride a horseback or go to town on wings.
