“When Tesla first discovered that the pictures in his mind could always be traced to actual scenes which he had previously observed, he believed he had hit upon a truth of great importance. he made a point of always trying to trace the external source. “Soon I became aware, to my surprise that every thought I conceived was suggested by an external impression”. Everything he did that he had thought to be the result of free will he now decided was actually caused by real circumstances and events. And if this were true it followed that he himself must be merely a kind of automaton.” – Nikola Tesla.
