Was Nikola Tesla An Alien From Venus?

A declassified FBI document seems to suggest so

When it comes to some of the most brilliant minds of our generation, many of us tend to wonder where exactly such genius comes from. As we marvel over the epiphanies and breakthroughs of some of the greatest minds of previous generations, such as Nikola Tesla, it’s curious what sets some people apart in terms of their unrivaled intelligence. A newly declassified FBI document seems to suggest, however, that Tesla’s brilliance originated elsewhere.

Venus, to be exact.

Nikola Tesla is an extremely well-known scientist whose numerous inventions and scientific discoveries led to the advancement in the technology that we enjoy today. His radio technology is what is used in today’s smartphones, computers, satellites, missiles, navigation systems, and spaceships. His inventions, such as the Tesla coil, artificial lighting, rotating magnetic field, and alternating-current (AC) electricity are known for being far ahead of Tesla’s time.

Tesla’s mind was almost too great for the limitations of his time’s technology. In 1926, interestingly, Tesla predicted that people around the world would eventually be able to stay connected by not only hearing but seeing each other no matter where they were located across the planet using a device small enough to fit into their pocket. This was decades before the first smartphone was ever even thought of. His foresight is almost unbelievable.

Tesla also had over 1,000 invention patents on record, including his 1905 patent known as “The art of transmitting electrical energy through the natural medium” which was based on his belief that the Earth was a sort of electrical generator that could supply a nearly endless supply of energy.

These things make it clear that Tesla was a remarkably intelligent man who was far ahead of his time. In fact, it has been said by many that his inventions were between 300 and 1,000 years ahead of time. Were it not for Tesla’s inventions, the world as we know it would be nearly half a century behind where we are today in terms of technological advancement. This has, understandably, led many to wonder about Tesla’s origins. Was he even from this planet?

Was Tesla a Venusian?

A newly declassified FBI document known as the “Interplanetary Sessions Newsletter”, written on June 14, 1957, seems to suggest that these notions may not be as unbelievable as they sound. In fact, this document seems to suggest that Tesla was originally from the planet Venus. It read in part:

“The Space People have visited the Tesla engineers many times, and have told us that Tesla was a Venusian, brought to this planet as a baby, in 1856, and left with Mr. and Mrs. Tesla in a remote mountain province in what is now Yugoslavia.”

Additionally, Margaret Storm, a woman who was tasked with writing a book on Tesla’s remarkable life, was reportedly given information through a device that the scientist created in 1938 that was said to allow for “interplanetary communication”. Allegedly, Storm even had contact with these so-called “Space People”. In an interview in May of 1959, Storm reported that Tesla was in fact a Venusian saying:

“Tesla was born onboard a spacecraft and brought to this planet… and placed in the care of Mr. & Mrs. Tesla.”

Storm claims that Tesla was frequently in contact with his fellow Venusians, even visiting him from time to time. In the interview, she states that Tesla had many visitors who arrived in spaceships and that “most of them have come from Venus”.

According to the “Interplanetary Sessions Newsletter”, Margaret Storm had been “assigned to certain work with the Space People as follows: She is writing a book- Return of the Dove- a story of the life of Nikola Tesla, scientist, and the part his inventions will play in the new age”. Further, much of the information that Storm used to complete her book was apparently given to her through communication with the Space People. The now-declassified FBI document goes on to say:

“Much of the data for this book has been supplied to Mrs. Storm through transcripts received on the Tesla set, a radio-type machine invented by Tesla in 1943 and his engineers did not build the Tesla set until after his death. It was placed in operation in 1950 and since that time the Tesla engineers have been in close touch with space ships.”

It is hard to say what exactly the motives were for Margaret Storm’s book and her claims that Tesla was a Venusian. In looking at the declassified FBI document, however, we may receive a small clue as to the greater minds at work in this process:

“Mrs. Storm will present the material to certain small groups in the New York area within the next few weeks, and probably Space Groups in other sections will also co-operate by offering it to their members. Our world situation is not hopeless by any means, although the Space People bluntly inform us that as a race we are too “lazy”; spiritually we must become more potent if we are to hold this planet together against the efforts of the dark forces to blow it to bits”.

Could it be that Margaret Storm’s book was meant to spark a new perception of our reality that would lead us to a higher spiritual place in the Universe so that we could correct the trajectory that our planet was on at the time?

If the claims of both the declassified FBI document and that of Margaret Storm, who made these claims years earlier, are to be believed, it implies that the United States has had close contact with extraterrestrials from Venus. Still, there are questions that remain: If Tesla is in fact from Venus, why did he come to Earth? Why did aliens reveal Tesla’s origins to the FBI? And why did beings from Venus contact Tesla so many times over the course of his life?

Is Venus to Thank For Tesla’s Innovations?

Many have said that without Tesla’s contributions, the development of the entire world as we know it would not be nearly as far along as it is today. Based on the number of patents that Tesla had on record, in addition to the nearly 500 patents that he had either sold or did not register, Tesla would have had to have created an unbelievable 20 inventions every year. Put more plainly, Tesla would have had to invent something that nobody on Earth had ever seen once every 20 days.

Is pure genius to thank for this remarkable progress or something more?

In thinking of this, more questions seem to emerge. If Tesla was really from Venus, are his great inventions simply Venusian technology granted to the human world? If so, what was the motive behind aliens teaching mankind about their technology, going so far as to even allow us to wield it, and what is their purpose in coming to Earth in the first place? Was Tesla the sole extraterrestrial living among us or is he simply one of many? How much of what we have today is Venus to thank for?

Rumors of aliens hiding within the United States, such as occupying Area 51, have been the focus of public opinion for decades. Some even claim that the United States has discreetly wielded alien technology in order to stay ahead of the game, dominating other world powers on a military and technological level. Further, presidents of the United States are known to have access to this classified information. How much do presidents, past and present, really know? Beyond that, how much is known to officials whose faces are unknown to the world who have classified access to even more information?

The “Interplanetary Sessions Newsletter” seems to leave us more questions than answers. Still, it is a remarkable finding for those who believe in alien visitation to our world. More and more often, the release of declassified government documents surrounding UFOs and extraterrestrial life (and our government’s long-time knowledge of it) seem to be preparing us for full disclosure.

What do you think? Could it be that we will soon know what has been kept for us for decades upon decades?

One can only hope.
