3, 6, 9 And Why the Numbers Mattered to Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla is undoubtedly one of the greatest human beings to walk this Earth. He was a genius, inventor, and pioneer. He came up with inventions and ideas long before anyone else could imagine them. And when I speak about Tesla, I like to say that he lived way ahead of his time. In fact, we have to thank Tesla for much of what we use today. One of his most famous inventions was, undoubtedly, the first alternating current (AC) motor.

However, he also developed AC generation and transmission technology. In the 1890s, Tesla invented electric oscillators, meters, improved lights as well as a high-voltage transformer which became known as the Tesla Could. He invented the radio, even though the invention was credited to Marconi. Two years before Marconi, Tesla piloted a radio-controlled boar in a small pool in Madison Garden. Everything we have to say about this man is worthy of praise.

But Tesla had his obsessions and did display what is perhaps ritualistic behavior. At one point during his life, Tesla said that “if you only knew the magnificence of the numbers 3, 6, and 9, then you would have a key to the universe. What exactly he meant by this remains an enigma. Still, many of his followers and historians believe it had great significance, not only for Tesla but for the future of mankind.

Tesla, for example, would walk around a block exactly THREE times before he decided to walk into a building. He wore gloves and was afraid of germs. He would wash his dishes with exactly 18 napkins since this number is divisible by the numbers 9, 6, and 3.
