Long-Lost Nikola Tesla Drawings Reveal Genius Map For Multiplication

Long-Lost Nikola Tesla Drawings Reveal Genius Map For Multiplication


A recently discovered set of original Nikola Tesla drawings reveal a map to multiplication that contains all numbers in a simple to use system. The drawings were discovered at an antique shop in central Phoenix Arizona by local artist, Abe Zucca. They are believed to have been created during the last years of Tesla’s Free Energy lab, Wardenclyffe. The manuscript is thought to contain many solutions to unanswered questions about mathematics.
The Sketches were hidden in a small trunk with numerous other drawings and manuscripts ranging from hand-held technological devices to free-energy systems, many with notes scrawled all over them. Some of the pieces are already familiar to the public, but a few others are not. Most notably is the Map to Multiplication or the Math Spiral. Zucca made a few copies and showed the drawings around to different thinkers, dreamers, and mathematicians.
A few days later a Local High School Mathematics Instructor, Joey Grether, had been working on deciphering the system and had a few breakthroughs. Grether suggests that the Spiral not only explores Multiplication as an interwoven web, but that it, “offers a comprehensive visual understanding of how all numbers are self-organized into 12 positions of composability.”
“This device allows us to see numbers as patterns, the formation of prime numbers, twin primes, Highly composite numbers, multiplication and division, as well as few other systems, I imagine, that are yet to be discovered.”
The diagram itself is very intuitive, allowing students to see how numbers all work together based on a spiral with 12 positions. 12, or 12x (multiples of 12) is the most highly composite system, which is why we have 12 months in a year, 12 inches in a foot, 24 hours in a day, etc. 12 can be divided by 2, 3, 4, and 6. So can all multiples of 12. For every 12 numbers there is a chance of 4 numbers being prime. They happen to fall in positions (think clock positions) 5, 7, 11, and 1.

Tesla is known for the quote “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have the key to the universe.” It turns out that when the device is examined, the digital roots of the numbers in positions 3, 6, 9, and 12 constantly repeat the same sequence 3, 6, 9! Is this what Tesla was referring too? The self-organization of numbers and their digital roots?
Its hard to say, but Grether seems to think so. “This breakthrough is phenomenal. If we could get students all over the globe to use this technique, to play with it, and help figure out how to use it, we could overcome our cultural aversion to Mathematics. Instead of memorizing the multiplication table, we could learn the positions of numbers and have a better understanding of how they work.”
Juan Zapata, One of Mr. G’s students believes so as well… “I used to say I’m bad at Math… because that’s what everyone says, but now, I’m like, dude, this is too easy.”
There’s one other fact about the Tesla Spiral that make it interesting. The diagram is dated 12/12/12! 1912. Grether and his students want to turn December 12 into a national holiday. So grab a 12 pack, get a dozen donuts, and celebrate the power of 12x ( via ).

How to argue with a internet troll - and WIN EVERYTIME

  Now a wise person will say the best way to handle the internet troll is to ignore them. Well, sometimes you simply can't. This is what the troll lives for - he thinks he has baited you into losing your cool and then they own you.

Not so fast!

There is a way to argue with the troll and put them in their place. This method I stumbled onto when I had to deal with a troll one time and I was surprised on how effective it is. I've used it many times since and it has a 100% success rate in having the troll lose their cool.

Once the troll starts to engage you - say to them the following statement:
 "Look, this is how this is going to play out. Hence forth you are my bitch slave and YOU WILL OBEY my commands. I now order you to say something directed at me."
When the troll responds, you own their ass for they did what you ordered them to do.

IMPORTANT - When you respond you MUST say and ONLY say:
"My bitch slave obeys! Now slave, I order you to post another response and to say something directed at me. You know you have to obey slave. You can't help yourself. You just can't let your master who owns your ass get the last word."
Do this EACH AND EVERY TIME they say something about you. Don't change what you say no matter what. The point here is the longer it goes on, the more you own their ass and the more other people laugh at the troll.

  Remember, if they choose not to respond, you get the last word and they had to shut up for they no longer desired to be your bitch. If they respond, they are your bitch.  The troll will figure out sooner or later they are in a no-win scenario. Also, the longer it goes, usually the more frustrated the troll gets and it will get even more amusing. In the end they will stop and go away but they know they got owned.

And that my friends is how you handle a troll.

Life in orbit - many interesting surprises

Life in orbit: 16 surprising things NASA astronauts have revealed in Reddit AMAs

Updated by

Very few people know what it's like to live in space. Only 538 people — out of a population of more than 7 billion — have had the chance to orbit Earth, and an even smaller number have spent an extended period of time there.
So what have they learned? In recent years, five astronauts have done Ask Me Anything interviews on Reddit, answering questions about subjects both profound (the life-changing experience of looking down at the Earth from above) and utterly mundane (what it's like to sweat, fart, and sneeze in space).
Together, their answers provide one of the most candid accounts of what it's really like to be in space. Here are some of the things they've revealed:

1) Launching into orbit is a terrifying thrill

"When we went through Mach 1 [the speed of sound] on my first flight, I was so overwhelmed by the increase in vibration that I thought for a minute that something must be wrong (i.e. 'Are the wings going to fall off?!')," wrote Jeff Hoffman, who made the first of his six Space Shuttle flights in 1985.
"But I realized that there had been numerous shuttle flights before, and the vehicle had always held together, so I just hung on and enjoyed the ride."

2) The first thing you notice about the space station is the smell

"When a visiting vehicle docks with the space station, there is 'space' between the two vehicles. Once the pressure is equalized and the hatch is opened, you have this metallic ionization-type smell. It's quite unique and very distinct," Mike Hopkins wrote last June, a few months after returning from the space station.
"The airlock smells like ozone, or gunpowder," wrote Chris Hadfield during an AMA he conducted in orbit. "It likely comes from the gentle offgassing of the outer metal and fabric of our suits."

3) Microgravity makes you feel like a superhero

Hadfield's favorite thing to do in the reduced gravity environment of the ISS, he said, is to "simply fly -— to push off and glide magically to the other end of the station. It makes me smile to myself, every time."
"We even pose for Superman-like pictures, normally with a big goofy grin on our faces," he wrote in a second AMA after returning. "But the inside of ISS is small enough that superhero leaps often end in a tumbling crash into the other wall."

4) Shrimp cocktail is especially delicious in space

Asked about his favorite food from the Apollo days, Buzz Aldrin remembered the dehydrated shrimp cocktail. "[The food] was mostly freeze-dried so we had to add water to the container and let it set," Aldrin wrote. "We had very small shrimp that had a little bit of cocktail sauce, and when exposed to water, were very very tasty."
Decades later, Hoffman also named shrimp as his favorite. "The reason is that your sense of smell and taste are reduced in weightlessness, probably because of the fluid shift to the upper body, which fills up your head and makes you feel a bit like you have sinus congestion," he wrote. "The shrimp in the cocktail were not great, but the sauce had a lot of spicy horseradish, and it really opened your head up. I had a shrimp cocktail before every dinner!"

5) Sweat has nowhere to go in space

"The sweat actually sticks to you," Hopkins wrote. "It pools on your arms and head. It can pool and get in your eyes, too. If you are running, it does fling off onto the walls and stuff, and then you are cleaning the walls around you. So you have to towel off often to keep it under control."
"The interesting part is that the sweat does go into the condensate system that gets recycled. Eventually after the towels dry off and the water is recycled, it becomes drinking water."

6) You fart more in space — but can't use it to propel yourself around the cabin

Hadfield observed that he experienced increased flatulence in orbit — "because it's impossible to burp when weightless (the gas, liquid and solid in your stomach all mix together)," he wrote. "As an experiment, try standing on your head and burping."
Alas, releasing this gas didn't give him an additional way of getting around the space station. "We all tried it," he wrote, but the farts were "too muffled, not the right type of propulsive nozzle."

7) Sex in space might be possible. But it's probably not a good idea.

Although microgravity would present all sorts of difficulties for people trying to have sex in space, it's probably possible. And when a Redditor asked Ron Garan, a retired astronaut who did an AMA last month, if one can achieve an erection in space, he coyly responded, "I know of nothing that happens to the human body on Earth that can't happen in space."
But as far as is publicly known, no astronauts have ever done it. "With a small crew, the interpersonal psychological effects would be complex and perhaps destructive," Chris Hadfield wrote. "Astronauts are just people in space, but we are professionals and crewmembers, and mutual respect and team success is key."

8) You rarely get sick on the space station

"There's no one to catch a cold from. The worst that can happen to is get a headache (they feel the same, take a headache pill, no biggie), or to get injured (I scraped my knee on a sharp corner)," Hadfield said.
However, he did add a note of caution: "Throwing up is problematic, as without gravity, your vomit bounces back off the other side of the barf bag into your face. Plan ahead, bring a cloth to clean up. And tightly seal the bag - you live in the same air as the trash."

9) But sneezing in a spacesuit is messy

"When we have to sneeze in our spacesuit, we lean our heads forward and sneeze into our chest, to keep it from splattering on the visor," Hadfield wrote. "Still messy, but the best compromise — clean it up when you de-suit."

10) Microgravity really does make you taller

"Without gravity...the fluids in my lower body partially migrated upwards, filling up not only my head...but also the discs in my spinal column," Hoffman wrote. "Combine that with gravity not pulling on my spine, and I grew 2" (5 cm) in space. This growth causes mild back pain for many astronauts, usually lasting only a day or two. The extra height goes away very quickly once you return to Earth."

11) Spacewalking is utterly amazing

"It really does take your breath away. You open that hatch and you look at the Earth — it's one of those times in your life that you will remember forever," Mike Hopkins wrote.
"It was the most magnificent experience of my life," Hadfield wrote. "Alone in a 1-person spaceship (my suit), just holding on with my 1 hand, with the bottomless black universe on my left and the world pouring by in technicolor on my right. I highly recommend it."

12) The movie Gravity gets a lot of important details right

"The depiction of people moving around in zero gravity was really the best I have seen," Aldrin wrote. "To a person who's been in space, we would cringe looking at something that we hoped would NEVER, EVER happen."
Hadfield agreed: "They got the immensity and tumult of it just right, the feeling of tininess in a vast universe, with an ever-omnipresent Earth."

13) Space can be a very scary place

"Sometimes we hear pings as tiny rocks hit our spaceship, and also the creaks and snaps of expanding metal as we go in and out of sunlight. The solar panels are full of tiny holes from the micro-meteorites," Hadfield wrote. "I watched a large meteorite burn up between me and Australia, and to think of that hypersonic dumb lump of rock randomly hurtling into us instead sent a shiver up my back."

14) Looking down at Earth is a life-changing experience

"It takes your breath away. It's surreal," Hopkins wrote. "It's also amazing how much you can see and how far in front of you that you can see."
The view, says Hoffman, reinforced to him "that the Earth is an oasis in space, with finite resources, and that we must protect it. Many astronauts have returned from space with much more of an ecological sensitivity than before their flights."
It did the same for Garan. "The view that we all have a responsibility to leave this place a little better than we found it and that we are one human family riding through the Universe together on Spaceship Earth was a view I had when I launched into space," he wrote. "Going to space made this concrete and obvious to me and the experience itself help[ed] me to find the words to describe this perspective better."

15) The moon is indescribably desolate



"My first words of my impression of being on the surface of the Moon that just came to my mind was 'magnificent desolation,'" Aldrin wrote. "There is no place on Earth as desolate as what I was viewing in those first moments on the lunar surface."
"What I was looking at, towards the horizon and in every direction, had not changed in hundreds, thousands of years," he wrote. "Beyond me I could see the moon curving away — no atmosphere, black sky. Cold. Colder than anyone could experience on Earth when the sun is up."

16) Reentry is just as terrifying as takeoff

"Atmospheric reentry after being in orbit is quite dramatic!" Hoffman wrote. "You are surrounded by white hot plasma at thousands of degrees. The view of your fiery wake out the rear window is spectacular."
