More than one hundred years ago the great scientist, engineer and visionary Nikola Tesla predicted the current environmental crisis and knew we would need a radical solution. He devoted the last part of his life to providing one, with his discovery the earth produces an unlimited reservoir of natural electricity and the system he invented to harness it, based on an entirely new understanding of physics. Tesla’s ideas were so advanced for that time, and challenging to mainstream science, that all funding for his projects was withdrawn, his name seemed to disappear from the history books, and since then all of this visionary work has remained veiled in mystery.
What Nikola Tesla had discovered is the primordial, cosmic energy that emanates from the sun; the energy that creates light and that makes everything in the universe spin. It is produced by the spinning earth, within stars, in the cosmic vacuum of space, and Nikola Tesla found a way to produce it with his invention known as a ‘Tesla coil’.
The film follows the events in Tesla’s life, and reproduces the groundbreaking experiments that led to the discovery he called his ‘greatest achievement’. Independent scientists and engineers provide solid scientific evidence to confirm it.
Pictures of Infinity will illuminate the profoundly ecological view of science revealed by these experiments and inventions, making the principles it is based on both visible and audible.
The film weaves together dramatic scenes from Tesla’s life, revealing his deep connection to the natural world; the work of contemporary scientists and inventors who are building on Tesla’s discoveries; and poetic and musical representations of this new concept of energy made with computer-animated graphics, documentary images of the natural environment, and with original music based on the same principles of resonance, harmonics and vibration that Tesla was applying to harness the natural energy of the earth.
