Nikola Tesla strongly believed that Pyramids served a much higher purpose that we aren't able to understand yet. He investigated if they were giant transmitters of energy that tapped the ionosphere for energy collections. Tesla is known for his contribution to experiments for transmitting energy wirelessly. He patented his research in the US in 1905 by the title "The art of transmitting electrical energy through the natural medium". His famous triangle shaped design was called 'Tesla's electromagnetic pyramid' .
English Violet is a medium dark shade of magenta / violet.
