“What you are looking at, gentlemen,” Garamond stated, “is information on a particular form of technology that Nikola Tesla developed shortly before he died in the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in 1943, just down the block from where we are now.”
“One of the last major projects that he was working on involved a theoretical technology known as ‘Scalar Movements’. The public has never seen these documents or what we’ve done with them because they were all confiscated by the FBI shortly after he died. They used ‘national security’ as an excuse and for once, they were right. If this technology fell into the wrong hands, it would have been disastrous for this great country of ours.”
“I’ll leave it to Wardencliff to explain the specifics,” Garamond said as he leaned back in his chair. As he did so, he asked if anyone minded if he smoked a cigar and then reminded them that he pays their bills. And then he lit his cigar.
Wardencliff started in: “We were experimenting with what’s known as ‘Scalar Technology’ throughout the 1960s and 70s. Russia had made veiled threats about using Tesla Death Rays through the 1970s, all of which we thought was nonsense. However, the United States government didn’t think this and acquiesced to these threats by getting the General Assembly of the UN to sign off on the ‘Convention of the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques’ in 1976.
“Having bought some time, we were able to do some research on the project, but we were struggling with it. Then, the FBI finally gave us access to the files that they confiscated after Tesla’s death in the 1940s. They were worried that there was some truth to what was being said and we were very excited to be given this information because we were able to crack some of the mysteries surrounding this technology and use it for commercial purposes.”
“So … here’s how it works. It’s actually quite simple. Tesla was able to build a tool, which he later destroyed because of its power. This tool would build and harness electro-magnetic energy. This energy could then be set at certain frequencies and transmitted through the Earth to form what are called ‘standing waves’. These standing waves are what were trapped by Tesla’s tool and he found a way to then combine these manufactured waves with the eletrco-magnetic waves that the Earth produces. By using what Tesla called an ‘interferometer’, a tool which would take two waves of energy, combines them and then creates a third new one, he could control giant standing waves and then combine them to produce a focused beam of significant energy.”
Wardencliff could see the look on everyone’s face and decided to use an analogy: “In essence, it would be like controlling the heart rate of the planet and then deciding at a certain point that you’re going to induce an aneurism by squeezing the aorta shut.”
He realized that they followed the train of thought as Hadlock and Manchester nodded (Garamond understood fully), but he also knew they didn’t really appreciate the applications.
“It’s rumoured that the Russians used Scalar Movements to disastrous effects in 1976 in an experiment with the Chinese. The rumour is that they were able to generate a man-made earthquake. This was the earthquake that pulsed through the Hebei region and destroyed the city of Tangshan. Officially, a quarter of a million people were declared dead, but the unofficial estimate is that about three times that population was buried underneath the city. At the time, the population was about 7 million, so it killed about 10 percent of the population. If this test were 100 miles to the southeast, it would have destroyed Beijing and those numbers would have been a significantly higher, partially because of the sheer increase in population, but also because Beijing is much more densely populated. I’ll talk more about that later.”
“While the connection to Tangshan was never verified, it was a wake-up call for the Western governments. That’s why we were put on the project.”
“Despite the requests made by the Pentagon, we really didn’t focus on the military applications. Instead, we realized that we could use Scalar Movements for significant commercial applications, especially for mining and oil extraction. Let’s not forget that we actually couldn’t use any of these technologies in warfare because of the agreement that we forced the rest of the world to sign.”
“Not that that has stopped us before,” whispered Hadlock with a menacing grin.
“By the end of the 1970s, we were doing a number of tests in the Pacific and we were ready to use them on a larger scale. What we found is that we were able to use the technology just as the commodity crises of the early 1980s hit the world. Using the technology, we were able to rapidly expand the reserves of petroleum products in stable areas of the world.”
“How so?” interrupted Eddie Manchester, who was fascinated, but at the same time, horrified by the concepts that Wardencliff was introducing.
“Prior to 1980, the most easily extracted oil was in unstable places of the world – the Middle East, Venezuela, Russia, Indonesia and so on. Easily extractable oil in the West was dwindling, so we were getting desperate. And that showed, because 1979 was when OPEC hiked the prices on us again.”
“The price increases were going to stick, and we were OK with that because our supply company, along with a few other companies like ESSO, Chevron and Shell controlled 95% of the flow of oil in the West and made 95% of the profits. Every time OPEC came along and pushed the prices up, we were able to yank a few extra billion from the pockets of millions of car drivers.”
“However, because we didn’t have extraction in stable areas, we were at risk of losing out on this entire market. By using scalar movements, we were able to literally shift the Earth’s crust and scoop out the oil that lay underneath it. What we found is that oil is everywhere, much like blood is everywhere in your body. You just have to have the right tools to get it and encourage it to keep pooling in that one area.”
“The Gulf of Mexico was the most accessible new location for us, and it lead us to other deep-ocean locations. This explains why most of the West’s resources come from the Gulf of Mexico, the North Sea and the Atlantic.”
“In essence, we were able to identify what you could cautiously call ‘unlimited reserves’. Price shocks today are strictly manufactured for the purpose of boosting our bottom line, but back then, as much as we tried to control the flow, we were under a significant amount of pressure to open the taps and get the economy going again. Other do-gooders in the West were close to implementing all kinds of silly rules and regulations, including the nationalization of oil in Canada to the development of renewable energy programs in Europe. We were teetering close to losing an incredibly vast and profitable market, so we had to loosen the grip a little.”
“After a lot of argument from a number of sources, this was an exceptionally wise choice because the 1980s introduced an unprecedented military expansion. Our defense contracts more than made up for lost revenue on oil and gas.”
“Wardencliff, you’re a man of my own heart,” Garamond mused.
“Thank you sir,” Wardencliff answered, but returned to his discussion with an intent focus.
“Things were going very well until we unintentionally created a bit of a disaster,” he said humbly.
“What do you mean?” asked Eddie.
“We have unconfirmed reports that we might have been responsible for the Boxing Day Tsunami in East Asia that killed more than 300,000 the day after Christmas.”
Even Garamond gasped, despite the fact that he knew this admission was coming.
The entire group paused for a moment, all of them needing a few seconds to let this update set in. Wardencliff continued.
“We were doing some routine exploration in the Indian Ocean and our technology created a massive disruption in the Earth’s crust, causing an unprecedented earthquake, that then created a ripple effect and possibly caused at least two other earthquakes. This was all caused by the use of Scalar Technology to disrupt the Earth’s crust.”
“So, might is actually did,” Eddie suggested.
“Not officially, but yes,” Wardencliff confirmed.
“That said, we knew that the uses of this technology’s power were confirmed absolutely and that we could then start using it for strategic purposes other than commercial.”
Garamond interjected: “I want to remind all of you that what we discuss from this point onwards will only be discussed here and will never be discussed again. All of you will be responsible for specific actions following the implementation of our plans, but you will not reveal anything about the potential origins of what will happen.”
“And what will happen?” asked Eddie.
“We will bring China to its knees,” Garamond confirmed.
Everyone in the group paused, wanting to ask Garamond to confirm what he had just said, but none would dare ask.
Garamond continued: “China has held their financial reserves over our heads like the Sword of Damacles, threatening our very livelihood for decades. We will shake them to the ground. When we save them, they will do our bidding. They will see things our way.”
