Do powerful Tesla-type earthquake weapons really exist?
According to conventional scientific wisdom, the answer is a
categorical no. Yet, there are many who harbor simmering doubts,
and still others who maintain that "conventional wisdom" inside the
scientific community merely reflects a mind-set rusted closed by
prolonged conservative values.

occurring behind the misnomer of "Non Lethality," and clearly

and Particle Beam Weapons"
"Air and Space Based Directed Energy
and, among many others, "DEW Weapons
Effects on Personnel"
Of interest too, is a paper written by Australian
Carlo Kopp, which outlines in considerable detail an
"Electromagnetic Bomb." The "E-Bomb,"
Kopp says, has the ability to
inflict damage "... not unlike the experience through exposure to
close proximity lightning strikes."
In a broadcast dated 27 February 1996, Beijing radio outlined
advances in particle beam energy technology and alluded to a "weapon
even more powerful than the ídeath ray.í"
The broadcast likened the weapon to a
"Thunderbolt," adding that the moment it struck itís target (vaporizing
it), a temperature of 8000 degrees Celsius would be produced.12
Not least are the comments of Boris Belitsky, a leading Russian
Science and Engineering correspondent, broadcast on Voice of Russia,
24 February 1997. Belitsky in replying to a question on Russian
military applications of microwave generators, stated "they can be
used to fire a plasmoid, that is, a blob of plasma..."
Despite the uncanny similarity of these latter-day lightning and
directed energy weapons to his own published research almost 100
years ago, the name Tesla remains unuttered. Tesla, clearly has
become an Orwellian "non person" in the scientific and weapon
research community. His classified research papers, however, may
well have been dusted down and quietly re-cycled ...
A brief foray into the literature of Tesla reveal an ingenious
inventor years ahead of his time. Born in Serbo-Croatia in the
former Yugoslavia, Nikola Tesla settled in the USA where he received
citizenship. Today, his work - at least that part which is not
hidden under national security wraps - is undergoing a marked,
although unofficial revival. He is belatedly credited with the
discovery of alternating AC/DC currents, fluorescent lighting, free
energy and remote-controlled robots. However, his inquiring mind
carried him into far wider realms.
During the late 1890ís,
Tesla built a "lightning bolt machine" at
Shoreham, Long Island, NY. Funding for the project, dubbed "Wydenclyffe"
was provided by banker-entrepreneur, J. P. Morgan. The construction
consisted of an enormous 187 foot high tower, capped by a 55 ton, 68
foot metal dome. Tesla was confident his machine would work as
envisaged - following previous experiments in Colorado where he had
accidentally destroyed the generating station at Colorado Springís
Former US Army Colonel and missile specialist,
T. E. Bearden,
credits Tesla with the invention of what he calls the "Tesla
Howitzer." This, Bearden maintains was able to transmit electric
energy over vast distances wire-lessly. Tesla himself argued that
this device could destroy entire armies and thousands of airplanes
at a distance of hundreds of miles.14
It is this device, using Scalar waves, that lays at the heart of
discussions of an earthquake weapon. Beardenís work, however, is
generally regarded as being theoretical rather than practical.
Non-the-less, Tesla claimed his inventions were not only possible
but fairly straight-forward. The fact that many of his more exotic
weapons concepts arose at the turn of the last century is, of
course, remarkable. Nor should we loose sight of the fact - which I
have repeated because of its significance - that his work papers
remain veiled behind US national security classification.
If such weapons do, indeed, exist, and covert testing is taking
place - as cited by Archipelago journalists and others tracking this
story- then we would expect solid evidence of unusual earthquakes
and related events to surface. The Kobe earthquake, though
interesting, must be viewed with caution. Aum guru Asaharaís
prediction could just as easily be predicated on known geological
forecasting. This rationale, however, does not appear to fit the
facts regarding a large number of powerful quakes and other curious
energy events that peppered Western Australia over the last few
TESLA WEAPON TESTING IN THE OUTBACK?
In 1995, British born Geologist/Geophysicist,
stumbled across a strange, unaccountable earthquake which rumbled
across the vast open spaces of Western Australia two years earlier.
The event took place at 11.03 p.m., on 28 May 1993 with an epicenter
close to Banjawarn sheep station in the Leonora-Laverton area -
North-East of Perth. The event registered 3.7 on the Richter scale
and was assumed to have been the first ever recorded quake in that
part of Australia. Mason, who was very familiar with the region and
itís geological composition, was intrigued. Initially believing the
tremor was the result of a meteorite impact, he set about gathering
Eyewitnesses reported sighting a fireball trailing across the sky
just minutes before the subsequent tremor. This was followed by a
bright blue flash and shortly afterwards, by an earth tremor
measuring 3.7 on the Richter scale. Shortly following this a "large
hemisphere of orange light, lined with a silverish glow, rose above
the apparent blast site."16
Extraordinarily, the dome of light remained in place for two hours,
and then rapidly vanished like "someone turning off a switch."17
Extensive interviews soon revealed to Mason, a number of major
inconsistencies with his meteorite theory. For one thing the object
was heard before it arrived overhead and clearly was moving at a
sub-sonic speed. Aware that meteorites generally have entry speeds
of around 25,000 mph, Mason was bemused. In addition the object gave
of "no sparks or other drop off fragments, and appeared to arc up
over the observers before seeming to plunge down to the North."
Moreover, the fireball emitted "a fiery spherical white-blue-yellow
light..." and "...flew at relatively low altitude," and "emitted a
regular pulsed swooshing roar" similar to a Diesel freight train
Some witnesses told Mason they thought they had observed a jumbo jet
or plane crash. Subsequent flights over the estimated impact site
revealed no crater or blast damage.
As his detailed investigation continued, Mason became increasingly
convinced that the Banjawarn event was not a meteor.
In time, his thoughts increasingly turned towards the peculiar group
that had purchased the Banjawarn sheep station in late April 1993.
Representatives of Aum Shinrikyo had first arrived at the station in
early April 1993 and commenced negotiations to buy the property five
weeks before the powerful quake. By May 1993, four other Aum
members, including a nuclear physicist arrived on site. By September
1993, Guru Shoko Asahara, arrived with his entourage and remained
for a few weeks. Throughout, a series of unusual geological
investigations by Aum scientists in, and around Banjawarn, were
These involved the curious activities of Aumís chief arms dealer,
Kiyode Hayakawa. Visiting Banjawarn station, he set about conducting
extensive electromagnetic tests with electronic probes. The data he
accumulated was fed into a laptop computer. Hayakawa remains central
to the story. He had extraordinarily good contacts in Russia,
traveling there no less than 21 times and repeatedly meeting with
the chief of Russiaís Security Council. It was Hayakawa who decided
to purchase the sheep station, just days prior to the energy event
and subsequent ground tremor.
In researching part in the
Aum story, journalist Jack Amano, is
convinced that Hayakawaís sojourns to Russia reaped rewards: "Aumís
Russian scientists had provided detailed designs and the theoretical
grounding to develop a technology more powerful even than the
ultimate weapon predicted by Asahara."
Not least in the Aum efforts, was the acquisition of related US
weapons data obtained by hacking into "sensitive US databases."
This, with the aid of Japanese government funding, Russian
technological know-how and advanced equipment provided by major
Japanese transnational corporations, a terrifyingly powerful
super-weapon was being constructed in secret.
Meanwhile, Geologist Harry Mason, was gathering information that
made him pause for thought. Intriguingly, just a few kilometers from
Banjawarn, is a military facility located at Laverton.
that press photoís of this facility "are identical"
to the Alaskan
HAARP (High-frequency Active Aural Research Project) programme.
HAARP has received intense media speculation in recent
years, due to its Tesla-like research programme. In an early,
detailed essay, Mason concludes "One is certainly left with the
impression that someone has been utilizing the
region as their own private testing ground."
In a private telephone conversation with the US Senate
Investigations Chief Council, Dan Gerber, Mason was told that
had "developed" nuclear bombs and were thought to be conducting a
"crash" programme to build an "Earthquake Inducing Weapon."
As he continued his research, Mason began to gather a significant
amount of additional data relating to what he terms "beam events."
These are bright beams of light that hang suspended from the sky,
often for prolonged periods. He states that these include "orange
beams, small bright white lights and vivid blue-white energy
discharges" in the more uninhabited regions of Australia. These also
include observations of "diffuse orange energy ícylindersí coming
down and striking the ground, whilst clouds overhead light up with
exotic colors." These beams, some experts believe, are a clear
"signature" of Scalar wave weapons. In addition there have been
other unexplained "fireball" events - notably a 1st May 1995
explosion above Perth, estimated to have been in excess of 1 megaton
of TNT energy equivalence.
US NAVY TO THE RESCUE?
Additional investigation by Mason centered on the South East
Great Sandy Desert of Western Australia. An area unknown for
earthquake activity until 1970, an amazing 173 tremors measuring
between 3-0 on the Richter scale occurred between 1970-3, with the
majority between March and early October 1970. The epicenters of
these events are spaced exactly 10 kilometers apart, along 8 lines
each 50-70 km long. Several similar events have occurred
subsequently. With the present figure standing at 246 (through
1995), Mason concludes they are "abnormally regular," and believes
Australia is being surreptitiously used as a testing ground for
advanced "scalar E/M weapons" exercises. Originally, Mason thought
these tests may have been of Russian KGB - or more probably French
However, recent data points to Scalar EM weapon tests conducted from
the top secret US Navy Exmouth Peninsula Tx facility.
The US Navy connection is intriguing.
HAARP - An
American Weather Weapon?
In their book, Angels Donít Play this HAARP, authors Dr.
Nick Begich and Jeanne Manning, reveal details of the HAARP
project that the US military preferred remained secret. The
High-frequency Active Auroral Research Project was primarily
based on the patents of Bernard J. Estlund, who acknowledged
they were partly drawn from the earlier experiments of
Nikola Tesla. The numerous patents of Eastlund and later
HAARP scientists revealed by the authors demonstrate the
project is weapon oriented. Weapon systems include massive
missile shields, EM pulse weapons, satellite interrogation,
weather modification and earthquake induction. Opposing
activists claim the project is inherently dangerous and
fraught with potential disasters for the planet.
It was the US Navy who were
responsible for Project "Prime Argus" - a precursor programme to HAARP. Argus was responsible for exploding
three atomic bombs in the Van Allen belts and, thereafter
monitoring the resultant effects. Researchers who have
recently investigated the son of Argus, project HAARP,
maintain this is an advanced weapon system capable of acting
as an impenetrable planetary-wide missile shield."
Behind the construction of
lay the scientific patents of Bernard J. Eastlund.
Previously classified as Secret, Eastlundís patents are now
partly available for inspection. They are revealing for the
sheer scope of what the HAARP project may be capable of,
including "weather modification." Eastlund had in fact used
much of Teslaís work to arrive at his concepts, a fact he
openly acknowledged. Moreover, the original Prime Argus
project was also concerned with looking "at ways to cause
Whether Teslaís earthquake inducing devices, and other
terrifying weapons of mass destruction are being secretly
tested by the major powers is, so far, unproved. But the
fact remains that serious military research demonstrates
these are within grasp. Who knows, they may even have been
grasped - considering the 100 year lead-time of Teslaís
inventions?. Those of us closeted outside the secret world
of weapons research are left to squint and speculate.
Weapons that can mimic cataclysmic
natural disasters open a Pandoraís box of deniability, and are,
therefore, of great value in todayís "I didnít do it" doctrine of
political survival. The fact that Aum did acquire significant
advanced weapons from Russia, and that Japan is presently re-militarizing
itself as part of the "China containment" strategy must be of
concern - even disregarding the dark visions of the prophet Nichiren
and his festering adherents inside Soka Gakkai and the Japanese
military, industrial and intelligence complex.
Similarly, one cannot disregard the EM weapon advances of the US,
nor forget the touted joint US-Soviet-Japanese missile shield, which
might easily switch from defensive to offensive posture? If we are
on the brink of a new class of weapons so terrifying in their
destructive potential that they prompted Kruschev to sound his
warning 36 years ago, should not the public at least be permitted
knowledge of what is being done in their name and with their tax
dollars? Apparently not. As ever, Joe and Jane citizen are to be
left blinking in ignorance - a fact their masters regard as
"blissful" - as they are Goose-stepped into a brave new world.
In one experiment in 1896, Tesla accidentally triggered an
earthquake across a dozen New York city blocks. This, Tesla later
said, was caused "by a little piece of apparatus you could slip in
your pocket." As local police stormed his lab, the wily inventor
lifted a sledge-hammer and smashed the oscillator to pieces,
bringing an end to the pandemonium.
That one simple act of common-sense wouldnít go amiss today.
