Dear Chip, Dr. Resonance, and all the fellow coilers (that I knew
Hello, it's me, Cabbot. After selling most of my "tesla stuff" (15KV
.161ufd cap, Wysock 600 pps spark gap, 257 # of 10 AWG square wire, and
other supplies used to attempt to reproduce Corum's ball lightning dual
coil arrangement), I finished college and then worked for 2 years on
building a house in Hawaii. In all these pursuits, I hadn't seen my
father in 3 years...meanwhile, he moved to none other than Colorado
Springs! So I decided to come to to Colorado Springs to see him.
That was last November...and I still haven't left. In fact, I drove
over to 220 East Bijou Street (Tesla's old laboratory) just the other
day; and yes, it was true...his place was completely renovated and
rebuilt to be a state building that supports challenged teens--how sad!
The other sad part was, no one there EVEN KNEW. I walked right in there
in the middle of the center of the building there was this large space
where these two business-stereotypes were pointing at some statistical
figures on a white board on an easel. I did not hesitate to openly
announce: "Hi...So where's Tesla?"
The expressions in the entire room dropped and there was this long pause
of silence; you could hear a pin drop! But I continued; "Yea, over 100
years ago this used to be Tesla's laboratory where he developed
technology much of which we still use today...although some of it was
repressed." After more jaw dropping and conversing with a completely
ignorant audience, I bid farewell as they had no clue even who Tesla
was. And this was his OLD LAB!! next door to what appeared to be a
tavern--and the older guys there STILL REMEMBER when it was Tesla's
laboratory. What a relief! It was engaging to talk story with them for
hours in the cold afternoon. Afterward, I walked behind the
lab/turned/counseling center, where there was an apartment building,
with rooms available. $325 per month sounded like a great deal to live
that close to town, so I talked with the owner for a while and then took
off. The coolest thing was the fact that even after all of the State's
rebuilding, you can still recognize his laboratory as some of what it
used to be: a large hangar!
Cheers to all,
ball lightning/fusion researcher and engineer
