Nikola Tesla was an obscure scientist before his previously suppressed achievements became well documented on the Internet. Back in the day, he was only known for his alternating current induction motor. Born in 1856 during a lightning storm, Tesla's whole life was filled by ups and downs, these events lead to scientific breakthroughs that could've made our world a lot more different than what it is now.
“My method is different. I do not rush into actual work. When I get a new idea, I start at once building it up in my imagination, and make improvements and operate the device in my mind. When I have gone so far as to embody everything in my invention, every possible improvement I can think of, and when I see no fault anywhere, I put into concrete form the final product of my brain.”
-Nikola Tesla

Tesla possessed an eidetic or photographic memory. He can build machines without even writing blueprints as a guide. Tesla His spatial intelligence is so great that he can mentally picture all of the parts from the largest gear down to the smallest screw, he has an unparalleled imagination even as a child.
“During my boyhood I had suffered from a peculiar affliction due to the appearance of images, which were often accompanied by strong flashes of light. When a word was spoken, the image of the object designated would present itself so vividly to my vision that I could not tell whether what I saw was real or not. . . . Even though I reached out and passed my hand through it, the image would remain fixed in space.
