Dragana Dasha Djukic at New York International Tesla Conference

I presented at the Tesla Memorial Conference in New York City on behalf of UNESCO Club at Sorbonne University.  The purpose of my presentation was to introduce the Club’s Tesla Memory Project to the international audience of business professionals, engineers and scholars, all of whom were experts in the fields closely related to Tesla’s line of work.

 

Additionally – in the spirit of UNESCO’s commitment to sustainable peace and development and in line with my academic research on regional political stability and peace-building – I presented about Tesla’s studies on the possibilities of international peace by the means of wireless transmission of electrical energy.

 

In the below picture, I am reading an excerpt published by Tesla in 1905 in The Electrical World and Engineer. The slide reads as follows:

 

“Our senses enable us to perceive only a minute portion of the outside world. Our hearing extends to a small distance. Our sight is impeded by intervening bodies and shadows. To know each other we must reach beyond the sphere of our sense perceptions. We must transmit our intelligence, travel, transport the materials, and transfer the energies necessary for our existence. Following this thought, we now realize, forcibly enough to dispense with argument, that of all other conquests of man, without exception, that which is most desirable and which would be most helpful in the establishment of universal peaceful relations is – the complete ANNIHILATION OF DISTANCE. To achieve this wonder, electricity is the one and only means.” (Electrical World and Engineer, January 7, 1905, pp. 21-24)
