The name is derived from the Latin word Tellus meaning earth. It was discovered in 1782. It is heavier than Iodum although it has a lower atomic number. It has some metallic and some non-metallic properties. It is quite similar to Selenium.
It is used together with Selenium and Bismuth to make tiny refrigeration units based on thermo electric effects. Other uses are: radio detectors, silver alloys to retain shine, disinfectants. Coloring of silver bromide in photography and semi-conductors. It increases the electrical and heat conductivity when it is combined with other metals. It is also used as a catalyst in the vulcanization of rubber.
They feel that their creations are no longer accepted by the general public. They have come to the end of their career and it is only the goodwill of the people that keeps them going. They are not taken seriously anymore. They don't take themselves seriously either, but they still get very angry when they are not being accepted or understood. This feeling often comes about after several big projects have failed. It can also be the situation of someone who has had it too easy, who has never had to exert himself to create something and who therefore doesn't take his own talents very seriously.
They often give their power away so they no longer have a grip on what is happening. Or they handed over their financial affairs to an agent so they no longer have a say in the matter. This is also a way of handing over responsibility.
They become interested in experimental art. They have grown tired of the well-trodden paths and are searching for freedom by indulging in all sorts of experiments. They are really different from the rest. Their creations are extraordinary. They are the musicians who like to improvise. It also saves them the trouble of having to study and rehearse their pieces, so it makes life a lot easier. They tend to be quite provocative; they like to see the reaction when they produce something strange. They like to lure their audience with clever tricks.
Their creativity is going downhill and they tend to neglect it. In the beginning they will continue to make new designs, but they don't bother with the final product anymore. Their presentation become more and more shabby and disorganized and they don't take themselves seriously anymore. Later on their designs become fewer and fewer because they think that it is wasted on the general public anyway.
Eventually all that is left is the memory of the old days when they were still famous. They tend to fantasies about all sorts of abstracts ideas, about art and about the things they would have created. It is a dream world in which they create the most wonderful things. And when others remind them that these days are over they feel very upset.
They expect to be admired, even if they do very little to deserve it. If their experimental and extravagant designs aren't immediately recognized as something very special they become indifferent towards their audience. They'll become slack and careless because they expect to be dismissed anyway. This careless presentation causes the public to lose interest very quickly and so they get into a vicious circle. They make very little effort to convince people that what they are presenting is really something worthwhile. They expect others to recognize the uniqueness of their creations without any further explanation.
And so they become indifferent to fame and admiration. They may even provoke the public and create an adverse reaction.
Eventually they start to neglect themselves and turn into a shabby artist. Hence their own dislike for shabby types, drug users and other down and outs.
Although they know that they have lost the fame they once had, they simply can't believe it. I used to make the most wonderful things; I used to be really famous, where has it all gone? They prefer to live in the past, the world of memories is infinitely better than the present reality.
This is the top sportsman after his career has come to an end. He still plays in the odd veteran competition or charity tournament, but all that is left of the great days is memories and photograph albums.
