I believe it is mostly true. Tesla was a very interesting character and we all owe him for his forward thinking. If you want to read a gpod book on the man get Tesla a man out of time. For an engineer it was a great read.
Tesla was remarkable for combining great brilliance with some colossal crackpottery. He was flashy. He was wonderful. He was a great choice for the name of an innovative car company. But he was not a god, and the present idolatry of him is unwarranted.
The cartoon said that Tesla died a virgin. The same is supposedly true of Isaac Newton. I'm glad that I'm not a super genius!
Newton had an excuse. All the mercury that he played around with poisoned him.
Sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from a rigged demonstration.
