Tolstoy.or.Tolstoi, Count Leo or Lev Nikolayevich, 1828-1910. Russian writer and philosopher whose great novels War and Peace (1864-1869) and Anna Karenina (1873-1876) offer extraordinary detail and profound psychological insights. His later theories of ethics and morality recommended nonparticipation in and passive resistance to evil. They had an important influence on Gandhi. Tolstoy's books elicit slices of life rather than simply being a work of art. Tolstoy achieved world renown as a moral and spiritual teacher; one of his quotes. Those who visited Tolstoy as an old man also reported feelings of great discomfort when he appeared to understand their unspoken thoughts. It was commonplace to describe him as godlike in his powers and titanic in his struggles to escape the limitations of the human condition. Some viewed Tolstoy as the embodiment of nature and pure vitality, others saw him as the incarnation of the world's conscience, but for almost all who knew him or read his works, he was not just one of the greatest writers who ever lived but a living symbol of the search for life's meaning.....comprised with information from Encyclopedia Britannica.

Movies are about the man who gave many helpful inventions to society, inventions that we use daily today. Learn to save movies for later viewing.

Tesla invented numerous devices and procedures that were seminal to the development of radio and the harnessing of electricity; he is the one who made practical use of what we use everywhere today, alternating current electricity (AC power), wireless transmission of electrical signals (cell phones, Internet, neon lighting, the rotating magnetic field which made generators possible, energy from the vacuum of space) and is credited with over 700 patents that he freely allowed others to use in hopes they would improve further on them and he freely gave the technology dubbed 'free energy' to gain electrical energy for the use of all mankind. He much loved his mother and had a sharp wit. Book,.Occult Ether Physics: Tesla's Hidden Space Propulsion System and the Conspiracy to Conceal It.by William Lyne
