Thank you Carol DM for nominating me for the Quote Challenge! A great lady with a sweet heart, you can read her posts here:
For the first day’s challenge, I chose these three quotes by Nikola Tesla:
“All perceptible matter comes from a primary substance, or tenuity beyond conception, filling all space, the akasha or luminiferous ether, which is acted upon by the life giving Prana or creative force, calling into existence, in never-ending cycles all things and phenomena.” – Nikola Tesla
I have many questions about the creative force. I have felt it, it is in all of us. The Hindus call it Prana. Is it only in living things, or is it in everything? Does it call things into existence, from the formative realm? Or are things created new, as novelties? This must be the most powerful force in the universe. Does it create out of nothing? Does it need a template?
“My brain is only a receiver, in the Universe there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength and inspiration. I have not penetrated into the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.” – Nikola Tesla
Is the brain a receiver of consciousness, instead of a producer? Is consciousness the foundation, and not matter? Tesla is probably not the first to come up with this idea, but he is the first that I know of who has articulated it this way.
“But instinct is something which transcends knowledge. We have, undoubtedly, certain finer fibers that enable us to perceive truths when logical deduction, or any other willful effort of the brain, is futile.” – Nikola Tesla
I consider intuition and instinct to be one and the same. We receive information from without, or maybe from within. Call it the sixth sense if you will. If your sixth chakra is open, you are able to perceive more subtly with your power of intuition.
