Nikola Tesla did countless mysterious experiments, but he was a whole other mystery on his own. Almost all genius minds have a certain obsession.
Nikola Tesla had a pretty big one! He was walking around a block repeatedly for three times before entering a building, he would clean his plates with 18 napkins, he lived in hotel rooms only with a number divisible by 3.
He would make calculations about things in his immediate environment to make sure the result is divisible by 3 and base his choices upon the results.
He would do everything in sets of 3. Some say he had OCD, some say he was very superstitious. However, the truth is a lot deeper.
“If you knew the magnificence of the three, six and nine, you would have a key to the universe.” – Nikola Tesla
