Dear Mr. Bell, We want to thank you for inventing the telephone.
It has transformed the world in ways you wouldn’t have thought
possible. What is next?
When my version of your telephone was first explained to some
financial backers I was trying to impress, I was laughed out of the
room. Remember, the telephone came right after the telegraph which
was making people believe in long distance communication. As the
telegraph was accepted it seemed that nothing could outshine it.
Inventions seemed a dime a dozen at the time, and if you think about
it, they were. Edison and myself were working on expanding the works
of Faraday the great chemist, and every idea tumbled over another
one. If you read about the second half of the 19th Century you will
realize that the genius of that era has never been outshone for pure
Other things will be invented and mankind will seek and accumulate
great rewards, but the angels were close to us then and every
morning we awoke with a superfluity of ideas for things to create
and the inspiration of how to build them. All great ideas come from
God and are sent through the angels while each person sleeps. The
“idea” is not a final offering, but a startling beginning to open
the minds of the people who enjoy original thought and science.
You will not believe what is next. If I drew you a picture of what
was “thought” could be in 1906 and what actually is in 2006, you
would have an inkling only of what will be in 2106. It is beyond
miraculous. You will see from this side after your passing over,
that God’s ingenuity is beyond man’s meager abilities to believe.
All things take all things. Every Inventor is a channeler. To create
takes Man’s Eagerness for Progress of, the Truth of Scientific
Principles, and the Will of God to bring all together for the
Bless You my Children. I enjoyed my work on earth and take pleasure
in watching your next phase of discovery unfold. I am still part of
