"...a magnetic whirlwind in space which possessed fantastically new and intriguing properties. It was an utterly new conception... Tesla produced a field of force which rotated in space at high speed and was able to lock tightly into its embrace an armature which required no electrical connections. The rotating field possessed the property of transferring [energy] wirelessly through space, by means of its lines of force..."
