So I was reading about the special properties of radio frequencies. Specifically I read this: "In contrast, RF current can be blocked by a coil of wire, or even a single turn or bend in a wire. This is because the inductive reactance of a circuit increases with frequency."
And it occurred to me that tesla coils had something to do with coils and radio frequency. So I looked up this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla_coil#Operation
In the tesla coil operation section we immediately find this: "A Tesla coil is a radio frequency oscillator"
So basically tesla coils resonate at very high radio frequencies, and if you look at one they are all coil, which is supposed to block RF.
As a last ditch effort to solving my own questions I tried to read the tesla coil Wikipedia article, but there wasn't much about coils blocking RF.
However like half way through or something I found this:
"The supply transformer (T) secondary winding is connected across the primary tuned circuit. It might seem that the transformer would be a leakage path for the RF current, damping the oscillations. However its large inductance gives it a very high impedance at the resonant frequency, so it acts as an open circuit to the oscillating current. If the supply transformer has inadequate leakage inductance, radio frequency chokes are placed in its secondary leads to block the RF current."
So like one of the coils is blocking the RF but not the others? Weird.
