Question about Tesla

  1. Mar 24, 2015 #1
    I'm starting to read about physics, and I was watching a video saying that the light doesn't actually move.
    And I ended up reading this comment on youtube:

    "Tesla teaches that every point of the universe is the same point and each point is capable of infinite expression. Wave field turn on/off so fast an illusion of solidity is created. Your own physical body is living and dying switching on/off, but the inertia creates the impression of a continuum, just like the 'motion' of the light bank"

    Is this true?

    Tesla also didn't believe in electrons, so I'd say not likely.

    You should not use YouTube videos and Tesla quotes to learn about real physics. There are much better and more reliable sources of information.
