The Natural Phenomena of AntiGravitation and Invisibility in Insects due to the Grebennikov Cavity Structure Effect (CSE) Introduction by Iu. N. Cherednichenko, Senior Researcher, Biophysics Laboratory, Institute of Human Pathology and Ecology, Russian Academy of Medical Science Viktor Stepanovich Grebennikov is a naturalist, a professional entomologist, an artistsimply put, an intellectual with a wi e range of interests an pursuits. !e is known to many as the iscoverer of the "avernous Structures #ffect $"S#%. &ut very few people are familiar with his other iscovery, one that also borrows from 'ature an its innermost secrets. &ack in ()** he iscovere anti-gravitational effects of the chitin shell of certain insects. &ut the most impressive concomitant phenomenon iscovere at the same time was that of complete or partial invisibility or of istorte perception of material ob+ects entering the ,one of compensate gravity. &ase on this iscovery, the author use bionic principles to esign an buil an anti-gravitational platform for irigible flights at the spee of up to -. km/min. Since ())(-)- he has use this evice for fast transportation. &io-gravitational effects are a wi e spectrum of natural phenomena, apparently not confine to +ust a few species of insects. /here is much empirical ata to support the possibility of a lowere weight or complete levitation of material ob+ects as a result of irecte psycho-physical human action $psychokinesis%-e. g. levitation of yogi practicing transcen ental me itation accor ing to the 0aharishi metho . /here are known cases of me iums levitating uring spiritistic sessions. !owever, it woul be a mistake to think that such abilities are only foun in people who are gifte by nature. 1 am convince that these abilities are an un erstu ie biological regularity. 2s is known, human weight significantly rops in the state of somnambulistic automatism $sleepwalking%. 3uring their nocturnal +ourneys, *4-)4 kg sleepwalkers are able to trea on thin planks, or step on people sleeping ne5t to them without causing the latter any physical iscomfort $other than fright%. Some clinical cases of non-spasmo ic epileptic fits often result in a short-term reversible transformation of personality $people in such state are commonly referre to as 6possesse 6%, whereby a skinny, e5hauste girl or a tenyear-ol boy ac7uire the physical prowess of a traine athlete. "urrently this psychological phenomenon is known as multiple-personality syn rome because it significantly iffers from the classical comple5 of epileptic symptoms. Such (

clinical cases are well-known an well- ocumente . !owever, phenomena accompanie by a change in the weight of humans or of material ob+ects are not confine to functional pathologies of the organism. !ealthy people in the state of acute psychological stress cause by a life-threatening situation or an overpowering motivation to achieve a vitally important goal have the ability to spontaneously overcome obstacles insurmountable in their normal con ition-e. g. to lift enormous weights, etc. /hese phenomena are commonly e5plaine by an e5treme mobili,ation of muscular strength, but precise calculations o not agree with such hypotheses. 2pparently, athletes $high +umpers, weightlifters, runners% have particularly evelope bio-antigravitational mechanisms. /heir athletic performance is mostly $if not wholly% etermine not so much by the rigor of their training as by their psychological prepare ness. 1f an accurate scientific task of stu ying the anomalies of the human weight in various psycho-physiological states were ever set up an technical means of ynamic weight monitoring create , we woul then have ob+ective ata on this unusual phenomenon. /here is also evi ence of other phenomena of short-term mass increase in biological ob+ects, inclu ing humans, that are not relate to mass transfer. V. S. Grebennikov8s book has high literary merit an inclu es the author8s own illustrations. 1t is a kin of a 6 actylogram6 for his system of spiritual values, his environmental outlook, an his entomological autobiography. 0any rea ers are likely to perceive the book as nothing more than a populari,e summary of the entomologist8s 94year e5perience of scientific observations, peppere with some elements of science fiction. &ut such a conclusion woul be eeply erroneous. 2s Viktor Stepanovich8s frien an as someone with an intimate knowle ge of his work $our homes are only (4km apart%, 1 can vouch 1 have never met a more careful, conscientious, honest, an talente e5perimental scientist. Grebennikov is also wi ely known in the so-calle scientific un ergroun $i. e. the branch of a vance :ussian science constantly persecute by the official scientific establishment%. /hus, a committee for combating pseu oscience, create in 'ovosibirsk ivision of the :ussian 2ca emy, has victimi,e many talente members of our local scientific community. /he situation is much the same at the :ussian 2gricultural 2ca emy. 1t is very easy to lose one8s +ob at a lab $even as its hea , regar less of one8s egree an title%. ;ne only nee s to publish an article on, for e5ample, the evolutionary significance of antigravitational mechanisms in insects. &ut 1 am convince that iscoveries of such proportions must not be burie in manuscripts +ust because pragmatism still rules science. <et this book be nothing but 6science fiction6 for those at the top. #ach person has his own beliefs. &ut he who has eyes shall see. "atastrophism in both the evolution of living nature an in the nature of human knowle ge is actually a rastic estruction of ol belief systems-a estruction that runs ahea of theoretical prognostications. 2 fanatical faith an i ol-worship links our contemporary aca emic science with pagan religion. &ut a harmonious evelopment $in

the sense of =avel >lorensky8s pneumatosphere% woul not be possible without breaking ol stereotypes in the process of mastering the wis om an e5perience of ol er generations.

Flight - Chapter V of V. S. Grebennikov's My World

"!2=/#: V. FLIGHT 2 7uiet evening in the steppe. /he sun8s re isk has alrea y touche the faraway, misty hori,on. 1t is too late to get back home-18ve staye too long here with my insects an am preparing to spen the night in the fiel . /hank goo ness 1 still have water in the flask an some mos7uito repellent-one nee s it here, what with hosts of gnats on the steep shore of this salty lake. 1 am in the steppes, in ?amyshlovo valley. 1t use to be a mighty tributary of the 1rtysh, but the ploughing of the steppes an eforestation turne the river into a eep, broa gully with a string of salty lakes, like this one. /here is no win . =o s of ucks gleam over the evening lake, san pipers are also hear in the istance.

/he high, pearl-colore sky stretches over the calming worl of the steppe. !ow goo it is to be out here, in the open country@ 1 settle for the night on the very e ge of the steep, on a grassy gla e. 1 sprea out my coat, put my backpack un er the hea , an before lying own, collect a few ry cakes of cow manure, an light them up. /he romantic, unforgettable smell of bluish smoke slowly sprea s across the o,ing steppe. 1 lie own on my simple be , stretch my tire legs an anticipate yet another won erful night in the country. /he blue smoke 7uietly takes me to the <an of >airy /alesA sleep comes fast. 1 become very small, the si,e of an ant, then enormous, like the sky, an am about to fall asleep. &ut why is it that to ay these 6pre-sleep transformations6 of my bo ily imensions are somewhat unusual, too strongB 2 new sensation has mi5e in-a sensation of falling, as though the high cliff has been snatche away from un er my bo y, an 1 am falling into an unknown, terrible abyss@ Su enly 1 see flashes. 1 open my eyes, but they on8t go away-they are ancing on the pearl-an -sliver evening sky an on the grass. 1 get a strong, metallic taste in my mouth, as though 1 presse my tongue to the contact plates of a small electric battery. 0y ears start ringing, 1 istinctly hear the ouble beats of my own heart. !ow can one sleep when such things are going on@ 1 sit up an try to rive away these unpleasant sensations, but nothing comes out of my efforts. /he only result is that the flashes are no longer wi e an blurre but sharp an clear, like sparks or perhaps small chainsA they make it har to look aroun . /hen 1 remember: 1 ha very similar sensations a few years ago in <esochek, or to be more precise, in the #nchante Grove Cthe author is referring to localities of an entomological preserve in ;msk :egionD. 1 have to get up an walk aroun the lakeshore. 3oes it feel like this everywhere aroun hereB 'o: here, a meter from the e ge, 1 feel a clear effect of 6something6, while ten meters further into the steppe the effect clearly isappears. 1t becomes a bit frightening: 1 am alone in the eserte steppe, by the 6#nchante <ake6. 1 shoul 7uickly pack up an clear out. &ut my curiosity takes over: what is this, reallyB "oul it be that the smell of lake water an slime is oing this to meB 1 go own, un er the steep an sit own by the water. /he thick, sweetish smell of sapropel-rotte remains of algae-is enveloping me like in a mu spa. 1 sit there for five, ten minutes-no unpleasant sensations. 1t woul be suitable to sleep here, if it weren8t so wet. 1 climb the steppe-same ol story@ 0y hea is spinning, 1 again get that 6galvanic6, sour taste in the mouth an feel as though my weight is changing-1 am at one moment incre ibly light, an unbearably heavy at the ne5t. 1 see flashes in my eyes. 1f it was

in ee a 6ba spot6, some nasty anomaly, then there woul be no grass here, an large bees woul not be nesting in the loamy steppe. 0eanwhile, their nests are all over it-in fact, 1 was trying to make my be right above their un ergroun 6bee city6 in whose epths there is of course a multitu e of tunnels, chambers, lots of larvae, cocoons-all of them alive an healthy. 1 un erstoo nothing that time. 1 got up with a hea ache even before sunrise an , tire , hobble off towar the roa to get a hitch to 1silkul. /hat summer 1 visite the 6#nchante <ake6 four more times, at various times of ay, an un er various weather con itions. &y the en of the summer my bees got incre ibly busy stuffing their holes with flower pollen-in a wor , they were feeling great. Fhich I wasn8t: a meter from the e ge of the steppe, above their nests, 1 again ha a set of most unpleasant sensations. >ive meters away, 1 ha none... 2n there was the same ol bewil erment: why, why o these bees feel so goo here that the entire steppe is apple with their holes like Swiss cheese, an in places, almost like a spongeB /he solution came many years later, when the bee city in ?amyshlovo valley ie : the tillage came to the very e ge which conse7uently fell off. 'ow instea of grass an bee holes, there is nothing there but an atrocious heap of mu . 1 only ha a han ful of ol clay lumps-fragments of those nests, with multiple chamber cells. /he cells were si e by si e an remin e of small thimbles, or little +ugs with narrowing necks. 1 alrea y knew that these bees were of the 7ua ruple ring species-that was the number of light rings on their elongate bellies. ;n my esk, packe with e7uipment, ant- an grasshopper-houses, bottles with chemicals, an other stuff, 1 ha a wi e receptacle fille with these spongy clay lumps. 1 was about to pick something up an move my han over these porous fragments. 2 miracle happene : 1 su enly felt warmth emanating from them. 1 touche the lumps with my han -they were col , but above them 1 felt a clear thermal sensation. &esi es, in my fingers 1 felt some hitherto unknown +erks, some sort of 6tick6 as it were. 2n when 1 pushe the bowl with the nests to the en of the esk an leane over it, 1 felt the same sensation as on the lake-my hea was getting

lighter an bigger, the bo y was falling own, the eyes saw rapi flashes, an the mouth taste an electric battery. 1 was feeling slightly nauseous... 1 put a sheet of car boar on top of the bowl-the sensation i n8t change. 2 pot li change nothing eitherA it was as if the 6something6 was cutting right through it. 1 ha to stu y the phenomenon at once. &ut what coul 1 o at home, without the necessary physical instrumentsB 1 got assistance from many research scientists of various institutes of the 2gricultural 2ca emy in 'ovosibirsk. &ut alas, the instruments-either thermometers, or ultrasoun etectors, magnetometers an electrometers- i not respon to them in the slightest. Fe con ucte a precise chemical analysis of the clay-nothing special. /he ra iometer was also silent... &ut or inary human han s, an not +ust mine, istinctly felt either warmth or a col raft an a tingle, or sometimes a thicker, stickier environment. Some people8s han s got heavier, others felt theirs were pushe upA some people8s fingers an arm muscles got numb, they felt gi y an ha profuse salivation. Similar phenomena coul be observe in a bunch of paper tubes inhabite by leaf-cutting bees. #ach tunnel ha a soli row of multi-layere cans of torn leaves, covere with concave li s $also of leaves%. 1nsi e the cans there were silk, oval cocoons with larvae an chrysali es. 1 aske people who knew nothing of my iscovery to hol their han s or faces over the leaf-cutter nests, an took a etaile recor of the e5periment. /he results may be foun in my article 6;n the physical an biological properties of pollinator bee nests6 publishe in the Siberian Bulletin of Agricultural Science, no.3, ()*E. /he same article contains the formula of the iscovery-a brief physical escription of this won erful phenomenon. &ase on the structure of bee nests, 1 create a few o,en artificial honeycombs-of plastic, paper, metal, an woo . 1t turne out that the cause of all those unusual sensations was not a biological fiel , but the si,e, shape, number, an the arrangement of caverns forme by any soli ob+ects. 2n as before, the organism felt it, while the instruments were silent.

1 calle the iscovery the "avernous Structures #ffect $"S#% an carrie on with my e5periments. 'ature continue to reveal its innermost secrets one after another... 1t turne out that the "S# ,one inhibits the growth of saprophytic soil bacteria, of yeast an other cultures, as well as wheat grain germination. 1t also changes the behavior of microscopic algea chlamy ospores. <eafcutting bee larvae begin to phosphoresce, while a ult bees are much more active in this fiel an finish pollination two weeks earlier. 1t turne out that the "S#, like gravitation, coul not be shiel e -it affecte living organisms through walls, thick metal, an other screens. 1t turne out that if a porous ob+ect were move to another spot, the human woul feel the "S# not imme iately but in a few secon s or minutes, while the ol spot woul retain a 6trace6, or as 1 calle it, a 6phantom6 perceivable by the han for hours, an sometimes for months thereafter. 1t turne out that the "S# fiel i not ecrease evenly with istance, but surroun e the honeycomb with a system of invisible, yet sometimes clearly perceivable 6shells6. 1t turne out that animals $white mice% an humans entering the ,one of the "S# $even a very strong one% soon a apte to it. 1t coul n8t be otherwise: we are everywhere surroun e by caverns large an small: by gri s, cells of living an ea plants $as well as our own cells%, by bubbles of foam-rubber, foam plastic, foam concrete, rooms, corri ors, halls, roofing, spaces between machine parts, trees, furniture, buil ings. 1t turne out that the "S# 6ray6 ha a stronger impact on living organisms when it was irecte away from the sun, an also ownwar s, facing the #arth8s center.

1t turne out that clocks-both mechanical an electronic-place in a strong "S# fiel starte running inaccurately-/ime must also have a part in it. 2ll this was the manifestation of the Fill of 0atter, constantly moving, transforming, an eternally e5isting. 1t turne out that back in the -4s the >rench physicist <ouis es &roglie was awar e the 'obel =ri,e for his iscovery of these waves, an that the latter were use in electronic microscopes. 1t turne out... well, many other things transpire in my e5periments an research, but they woul lea us into soli -state physics, 7uantum mechanics, elementary-particle physics, i. e far away from the main characters of our narrative: insects... 0eanwhile, 1 i manage to evise instruments for an ob+ective registration of the "S#instruments that accurately reacte to the pro5imity of insect nests. !ere they are in the rawing: seale vessels with straws an burnt twigs- rawing coals-suspen e on spi er web threa s. /here is some water at the bottom to counter static electricity hin ering e5periments in ry air. 1f you point an ol wasp nest, a bee honeycomb, a bunch of cereal ears to the upper en of the in icator, it slowly moves a few o,en egrees... /here is no miracle here: the energy of scintillating electrons of both multi-cavernous bo ies creates a total wave system in space, whereby a wave is energy capable of performing a mutual repulsion of these ob+ects-even through obstacles, such as a thick-walle steel capsule $see photograph%. 1t is har to imagine that its armor is powerless to stop waves of a tiny, light wasp nest seen in the picture, an that the in icator insi e this heavy, soli capsule 6runs away6-sometimes as far as (*4 egrees-from this longvacant nest. Het it is so. /hose who have oubts are invite to visit the 2groecology 0useum near 'ovosibirsk-you8ll see it for yourselves. *

/he same museum isplays an always-active honeycomb painkiller. 1t is a chair with an overhea cap that has a few empty, but intact combs of the honeybee $6 ry6 honeycombs, in the beekeeper vocab% in it. 2nyone who sits in this chair will after a few minutes almost certainly feel something $please write to me what e5actly you feel, 18ll be grateful%, while those with a hea ache will in +ust a few minutes say goo bye to the pain-at least for a few hours. 0y painkillers are successfully use in many parts of the country-1 ma e no secret of my iscovery. /he han will clearly sense the emanation if you take it from below, palm up, to the cap with bee honeycombs. /he cap coul be ma e of car boar , veneer, or better still, of tin plate with tightly seale seams. Het another gift from insects... /his was my reasoning at first: people have been ealing with the honeybee for thousan s of years, no one has ever complaine of anything unpleasant, e5cept of course stings. 1 hel a ry honeycomb over my hea -it was working@ 1 eci e to use a set of si5 frames. Such was the story of my rather simple iscovery. 2n ol wasp nest works 7uite ifferently, even though the si,e an shape of its cells are very close to those of bees. /he important ifference was that the honeycomb material, unlike that of wa5, is more crumbly an micro-porous: it is paper-like $by the way, it was wasps that invente paper, not people: they scrape ol woo fiber an mi5 it with their sticky saliva%. Falls of the wasp honeycomb are much thinner than those of bees, the cell si,e an pattern are also ifferent, as is the outer shell, also ma e of multi-layere , loosely wrappe paper. 1 ha reports of a highly unpleasant effect of a few wasp nests in an attic. 2n besi es, most multi-cell evices an ob+ects that will manifest "S# in the first few minutes have a far from beneficial effect on humans. !oneybee combs are a rare e5ception. 2n when in the ()94s we ha bumblebees living in our 1silkul apartment, 1 often observe the following. 2 young bumblebee on its first trip away from the hive i not take the trouble to remember the entrance an woul spen hours wan ering aroun the win ows of our house an of a similar-looking house nearby. 2n in the evening, giving up on its poor visual memory, it woul lan on the brick wall, precisely outsi e the hive an woul try to break right through it. !ow i the insect know that right there, four meters away from the entrance, an a meter an a half below, behin the thick, half-meter wall was its home

nestB 2t the time 1 was lost in con+ectures, but now 1 know e5actly why the bumblebee behave like that. 2n ama,ing fin , woul n8t you agreeB 'ow let us remember the e5periment in which hunter wasps returne not +ust to a given location, but to an entirely ifferent place where the lump of soil with their nest ha been move : no oubt, they were able to fin it because of a wave beacon create by the nest cavern. 2n there was another mystery reveale to me by my insect frien s. 1t turne out that to attract their pollinators, flowers use not only color, o or, an nectar, but also a similar wave beacon, powerful an unstoppable. 1 iscovere it with a rawing coal-a burnt twig-by passing it over large, bell-shape flowers $tulips, lilies, amaryllises, mallows, pumpkins%. 2lrea y at a istance 1 coul feel a 6braking6, as it were, of this etector. Soon 1 was able to fin a flower in a ark room stan ing one or two meters away from it-but only if it ha not been move , because a 6false target6 woul be left in its ol place-the 6resi ual phantom6 1 alrea y mentione . 1 o not possess any supersensory abilities, an any person after some training woul be able to o the same. 1nstea of coal one coul use a (4-cm-long piece of a yellow sorghum stem, or a short pencil whose rear en shoul be facing the flower. Some people woul be able to feel the flower $a 6warm6, 6col 6, or 6shivering6 sensation emanating from it% with their bare han s, tongues, or even faces. 2s many e5periments emonstrate , chil ren an a olescents are particularly sensitive to Faves of 0atter. 2s for bees that nest un ergroun , their 6knowle ge6 of the "S# is vital for them first of all, because it enables the buil er of a new gallery to stay away from a neighboring nest. ;therwise the entire bee-city cut through with intersecting holes woul simply collapse. Secon ly, plant roots cannot be allowe to grow own into the galleries an honeycombs. /hus roots stop a few centimeters away from the honeycomb, or else, feeling that nests are near, they start growing asi e. /he latter conclusion was confirme by my many e5periments on sprouting wheat see s in a strong "S# fiel , as compare to see s germinating in the same climatic con itions but in the absence of the "S#. =hotographs an rawings show both the ying of roots

'one of these structures ha any effect in isolation. 1 will also note that han s with their tubular phalan5es, +oints, ligaments, bloo vessels, an nails are intensive "S# emanators capable of giving a powerful push to the straw or coal in icator of my little instrument from a couple of meters8 istance. =ractically anyone coul o it. /his is why 1 am convince that there are no people with supersensory abilities, or rather that all the people have them... 2n the number of those who from a istance can move light-weight ob+ects on a table, hol them suspen e in the air or 6magnetically6 attache to the han is far greater than is usually thought. /ry it yourself@ 1 look forwar to your letters. /here once was an ancient folk game: one man sits on a chair, an over his hea , four of his frien s 6buil 6 a gri of hori,ontally stretche palms with slightly sprea fingers-first right han s, then left, with - cm gaps between them. 1n (4-(. secon s, all four synchronously put their presse -together in e5 an mi le fingers un er the armpits an un er the knees of the sitting man, an then they energetically toss him up in the air. /he time between 6collapsing6 the gri an tossing the man must not e5cee two secon sA the synchronicity is also very important. 1f everything is one right, a (44-kilo man flies up almost to the ceiling, while the ones who tosse him claim he was light as a feather. 2 strict rea er may ask me how it is possible. 3oesn8t it all contra ict laws of natureB 2n if so, am 1 not propagating mysticismB 'othing of the sort@ /here is no mysticism, the thing is simply that we, humans, still know little of the Iniverse which, as we see, not always 6accepts6 our, all too human rules, assumptions, an or ers... ;nce it awne on me: the results of my e5periments with insect nests bear too much similarity to the reports of people who happene to be in the vicinity of...

from the surface up. 1 physically feel a thick, ense current with a strong o or of blooming buckwheat. ;f course this +et can easily lift up even a large bir -an eagle, a stork, or a crane-if it free,es its sprea wings. &ut 1 have no wings an am suspen e in the air not by the upwar +et. 1n my flight 1 am supporte by a flat, rectangular little platform, slightly bigger than the seat of a chair, with a pole an two han les to which 1 hol on an with whose help 1 navigate the evice. 1s this science fictionB 1 woul n8t say so... 1n a wor , the interrupte manuscript of this book was aban one for two years because generous, ancient 'ature, again through my insect frien s ha given me another Something-an it i so, as usual, elegantly an inconspicuously, yet swiftly an convincingly. 2n for two years the 3iscovery i not let me go, even though it seeme to me 1 was mastering it at a break-neck spee . $'ote: Grebennikov woul have been appro5imately 9--93 years of age in ())4-())-% &ut it always happens this way: when your work is new an interesting, time flies twice as fast. 2 light spot of a steppe lake is alrea y much closer. &eyon it, the highway is visible with alrea y istinctly iscernable bo5es of cars. /he highway is about *km away from the railway that runs parallel to it, an if 1 look closer, 1 can see the poles of the power line an the lightcolore embankment of the railway. 1t is time to turn some -4 egrees to the left. 1 am not seen from the groun , an not +ust because of the istance: even in a very low flight 1 cast almost no sha ow.

/hus it is possible to fly not +ust in space but also-or so it seems-in time as well. 1 cannot make the latter claim with a (44L guarantee, e5cept perhaps that in flight, particularly at its beginning, a watch runs too slow an then too fast, but at the en of the e5cursion starts running accurately again. /his is why 1 stay away from people uring my +ourneys: if time is involve alongsi e gravitation, 1 might perhaps acci entally isrupt cause-an -effect relations an someone might get hurt. /his is where my fears were coming from: insects capture 6there6 isappear from test tubes, bo5es, an other receptacles. /hey isappear mostly without a trace. ;nce a test tube in my pocket was crushe to tiny bits, another time there was an oval hole in the glass, with brown, as though 6chitin6 e ges-you can see it in the picture. 0any times 1 felt a kin of burning or an electric shock insi e my pocket-perhaps at the moment of my prisoner8s 6 isappearance6. ;nly once i 1 fin a capture insect in the test tube, but it wasn8t the a ult ichneumon with white rings on its feelers, but its... chrysalis, i. e. its earlier stage. 1t was alive-it move its belly when touche . 0uch to my ismay, it ie a week later. 1t is best to fly on clear summer ays. >lying is much more ifficult when it rains, an almost impossible in winter-not because of the col . 1 coul have a apte my evice accor ingly, but since 1 am an entomologist, 1 simply o not nee winter flights. !ow an why i 1 come to this iscoveryB 1n the summer of ()**, as 1 was e5amining un er a microscope the chitin shells of insects, their pinnate $feathery% feelers, an the thinnest structure of butterflies8 wings, 1 got intereste in an ama,ingly rhythmical microstructure of one large insect etail. 1t was an e5tremely well-or ere composition, as though presse on a comple5 machine accor ing to special blueprints an calculations. 2s 1 saw it, the intricate sponginess was clearly not necessary either for the urability of the etail, or for its ecoration. 1 ha never observe anything like this unusual micro-ornament either in nature, in technology, or in art. &ecause its structure is three- imensional, so far 1 have been unable to capture it in a rawing, or a photograph. Fhy oes an insect nee itB &esi es, other than in flight, this structure at the bottom of the wing case is always hi en from the eye-no one woul ever see it properly.

1 put the small, concave chitin plate on the microscope shelf in or er again to e5amine un er strong magnification its strangely star-shape cells. 1 again a mire this masterpiece of nature, an almost purposelessly place it on top of another, i entical plate that ha the same unusual cells on one of its si es. &ut no@-the etail broke loose from my twee,ersA for a few secon s it hung suspen e above the other plate on the microscope shelf, turne a few egrees clockwise, sli to the right, turne counterclockwise, swung, an only then abruptly fell on the esk. Hou can imagine what 1 felt at that moment... Fhen 1 came to my senses, 1 tie a few panels with a wire-it wasn8t an easy thing to o, an 1 only succee e when 1 positione them vertically. Fhat 1 got was a multi-layere chitin block. 1 put it on the esk. #ven a relatively large ob+ect-such as a paper tack-coul not fall on it-something pushe it up an asi e. Fhen 1 attache the tack on top of the 6block6, 1 witnesse such incre ible, impossible things $for e5ample, the tack for a few moments was lost from sight% that 1 reali,e it was no beacon, but something else entirely. 2n again 1 got so e5cite that all the ob+ects aroun me became foggy an shaky. 1t was with a huge effort that 1 manage to pull myself together in a couple of hours an continue working. So, this is how it starte . ;f course, much still remains to be un erstoo , verifie , an teste . 1 will certainly tell my rea ers about the finer etails of my machine, about its propulsion principles, about istances, heights, spee s, e7uipment, an all the rest-but in my ne5t book. ...1 con ucte my first, very unsuccessful an highly angerous flight on the night of 0arch (G, ())4. 1 i n8t have the patience to wait till the warm season an neglecte to go to a eserte area. 1 alrea y knew that night was the most angerous time for this kin of work. 1 ha ba luck from the very beginning: the panel blocks of the right part of the bearing platform perio ically got stuck. 1 shoul have fi5e the problem imme iately, but neglecte to o so. 1 took off right in the mi le of the 2gricultural 2ca emy campus, erroneously assuming that at ( 20 everyone was asleep, an nobo y woul see me. /he lift-off went well, but in a few secon s, when the lit win ows of buil ings sank beneath me, 1 felt i,,y. 1 shoul have lan e right then but remaine airborne, which was wrong because a powerful force snatche away my control over the movement an weight, an it pulle me in the irection of the city. 3rawn by this une5pecte , uncontrollable power, 1 crosse the secon circle of nine-story buil ings in the city8s resi ential area $they are lai out in two huge circles with five-story buil ings, inclu ing ours, insi e them%, then 1 crosse a snow-covere , narrow fiel , an the 2ca emy "ity highway... /he ark immensity of 'ovosibirsk was closing in upon

me, an it was closing in fast. 1 was alrea y near a bunch of tall factory chimneys many of which fume thick smoke-night shift was on. 1 ha to o something 7uickly. 1 got on top of the situation only with a great effort. >inally 1 manage to con uct an emergency a +ustment of the panel blocks. 0y hori,ontal movement slowe own, but then 1 again felt sick. ;nly at fourth try i 1 succee in stopping the hori,ontal movement, at which point my platform was hanging over Matulinka, the city8s in ustrial istrict. /he sinister chimneys silently continue to fume right un erneath me. 1 reste for a few minutes-if one coul call hanging over a lighte factory fence rest-an after 1 ma e sure the 6evil power6 has passe , 1 gli e back-yet not in the irection of our 2gricultural 2ca emy campus but to the right from it, towar the airport. 1 i this to foul the trail, in case someone ha seen me. ;nly about halfway to the airport, over some ark, night fiel s where there was clearly no one aroun , 1 abruptly turne home...

my entomological preserves. /hese are far more important to me than any technological fin s. 2t the moment, 1 have eleven such preserves: eight in ;msk region, one in Vorone,h region, an one near 'ovosibirsk. /here use to be si5 of them in 'ovosibirsk region, all of them create , or rather salvage by me an my family, but they on8t like them here. 'either the 2gricultural 2ca emy $still more obsesse with 6chemistry6 than with anything else%, nor the #nvironmental =rotection "ommittee were willing to help me salvage these little preserves from evil, ignorant people. /hus 1 am continuing my +ourney westwar un er the magnificent, fluffy clou s at noon. /he blue sha ows of the clou s, the intricately shape coppices, an the multicolore rectangles of fiel s float backwar s below me. /he spee of my flight is 7uite high, but there is no win in my ears-the platform8s force fiel has 6carve out6 from space an upwar - iverging, invisible column that cuts the platform off the earth8s gravitational pull. &ut it left me an the air insi e the column intact. 1 think that all this, as it were, parts space in flight, an then closes it behin me. /his must be the reason for the invisibility, or the istorte visibility, of the evice an its 6ri er6-as was the case with my flight over 'ovosibirsk8s Matulinka suburb. &ut the protection from gravity is regulate , even though it is incomplete: if you move your hea forwar , you alrea y feel the turbulence of the win that clearly smells either of sweet clover, of buckwheat, or of the colore wee s of Siberian mea ows. 1 leave 1silkul with its huge grain elevator on my right an gra ually begin to escen over the highway, making sure that 1 am invisible to rivers, passengers, an people working in the fiel . 0y platform an 1 cast no sha ow $although the sha ow occasionally appears%: 1 see three ki s on the e ge of a forest, go own, rop my spee , an fly right near them. /hey show no reaction, which means that everything is fine-neither 1, nor my sha ow are visible. ;r hear : the propulsion principle of my evice is such that the platform makes no soun whatsoever, because there is practically no air friction. 0y +ourney was long-at least forty minutes from 'ovosibirsk. 0y han s are tire as 1 can8t take them off the controls, so are my legs an bo y-1 have to stan up straight, tie to the vertical pole with a belt. 2n even though 1 can travel faster, 1 am still afrai to o so-my han -ma e machine is still too small an fragile.

1 again go up an ahea , an soon 1 see the familiar lan marks-a roa intersection, a passenger terminal on the right si e of the highway. 2nother five kilometers, an finally 1 see orange columns of the =reserve fence. /he =reserve is this year-come to think of it()

twenty years ol @ !ow many times 1 save this chil of mine from trouble an bureaucrats, from chemicals-loa e aircraft, from fires, an many other evil ee s. 2n the <an of 1nsects is alive an well@ 3escen ing an braking, which is one by cross-shifting filter blin s un er the platform boar , 1 alrea y see the thicket of carrot wee , make out the light hea s of their flowers resembling a,ure balls-they are of course covere with insects, an an incre ible +oy comes over me, taking away my fatigue, for it was 1 who save this piece of #arth, even if a small one, less than seven hectares. 2lrea y for twenty years no one has riven here, no one has cut the grass, ten e cattle, an the soil has risen in places to fourteen centimeters high. 'ot only several locally e5tinct species of insects have returne , but also such wee s as feather grass of rare varieties, purple Scor,onera whose large flowers in the morning smell of chocolate, an many other plants. 1 feel the thick smell of cuckoo flower-only this 0i le Gla e smells like that, it is right behin the fence of the preserve, an fills me with yet again with the +oyful anticipation of another encounter with the Forl of 1nsects. !ere they are, 1 can see them very well even from ten meters above the groun on the wi e umbrellas an a,ure balls of angelica an carrot plants: ark orange butterflies sit on them in groupsA heavy hornets bow the white an yellow inflorescences of la y8s be strawsA ginger an blue ragonflies with trembling wi e wings an a fine network of veins hover ne5t to my hea . 1 slow own even more, an see a su en flash below: my sha ow, hitherto invisible, has finally appeare an now slowly gli es along wee s an bushes. &ut 1 am alrea y safe-there is not a soul aroun , an the highway three hun re meters north of the preserve is now empty. 1 can lan . /he stems of the tallest wee s rustle against the bottom of my 6po ium6-the platform with the panel blocks. &ut before putting it own on a little bump, 1, in a fit of +oy, again sprea the blin s with my control han le, an vertically go up. /he lan scape below 7uickly shrinks, shrivels as it were: the shrubs of the preserve, its e ges an fences, all the surroun ing coppices an fiel s. /he hori,on begins to curve on all si es in a huge groove, opening up the railroa that runs two kilometers on the left, then a village on the right-it twinkles with its light slate roofs. >urther on the right is :oslavka, the central estate of <esnoy State >arm-it alrea y looks like a small city. <eft from the railroa are cow farms of <esnoy8s ?omsomolsk branchA they are surroun e by a yellow ring of straw an ry, foot-worn manure. 1n the far west, where the smooth curve of the railroa isappears $this is actually confusing: the railway is straight as an arrow%, there are small houses an the neat white cube of the Hunino railroa terminal, si5 km away. &eyon Hunino, there are limitless e5panses of ?a,akhstan rowning in the hot, bluish ha,e. 2n finally here it is, below me-1silkulia, the lan of my youthA it8s very ifferent from how it appears on maps an plans with their inscriptions an signs. 1t is vast, limitless,

'ot a single, even tiniest fragment or particle shoul be roppe either uring the flight, or in the lan ing area. <et us remember the 3alnegorsk phenomenon of Kanuary -), ()*9-apparently a tragic one for the inventors, when the entire evice was blown apart an scattere on a vast area, an only small shre s of filter cells were foun , impossible to analy,e chemically $as it shoul be@%. :emember, 1 wrote that insects taken 6there6 an move 6here6 in a test tube isappeare , an a hole was forme in the tube, if it remaine intact. 1t turns out these holes resemble those in win ow glassA the latter sometimes appear in resi ential an office buil ings, occasionally in 6bursts6 in the win ows of several rooms an floors. 2 hole is 3-. mm on the outsi e, wi ening in a cone to he insi e, with e5it iameter of 9-(. mm. Some holes are melte or colore in brown on e ges-+ust as it happene in the case of my insect in a test tube. 1t seems that this type of poltergeist is cause not, as 1 use to believe, by short-live microplasmoi s of a tiny ball lightening type, but by particles an specks carelessly roppe while testing a evice similar to mine. /he photographs of win ow holes on these pages are ocumentary an ma e by me at the scientific center of the 2gricultural 2ca emy near 'ovosibirsk. 1 can show them to anyone who wants to see them. /hese holes appeare uring ()G.-())4, but none of them, e5cept perhaps the very last one, are relate to my flights. 1 am certain that part of I>; escriptions are actually those of platforms, panel blocks an other large parts of evices eliberately or acci entally taken out of the active fiel by their esigners an makers. /hese fragments are capable of causing much trouble to others, or at best, to generate a series of improbable tales an stories in papers an maga,ines, often accompanie by 6scientific6 commentary...

1 loosen the screws on the control pole, then shorten it like an antenna of a portable ra io, an remove it from the platform which 1 fol in half.
