The world media published materials of the CIA about psychic experiments in Novosibirsk

Several media outlets around the world have published materials that in Novosibirsk in the 80s allegedly conducted serious experiments on extrasensory perception. All articles are based on a declassified 1991 CIA agent memo.

Publications about this have appeared in various publications-from the quite serious Spanish national newspaper La Vanguardia and the British mass edition of the Daily Mail to the Italian Tom's Hardware (a publication about the gaming industry and entertainment) and the American Coomikbook. Here is a slightly abridged translation of the most detailed publication in the Daily Mail.

Declassified CIA materials say that American intelligence believed that Soviet doctors had advanced in extrasensory perception in the 80s and could transmit thoughts at a distance and feel objects. The document, dated April 1991 and talking about Soviet psychic practices, was declassified in November last year, but published only on Monday. Judging by this memo, the CIA believed that Soviet scientists had achieved some success in extrasensory perception. The document describes several experiments that took place in Siberia in the second half of the 80s.

The note mentions the names of two scientists who worked on psychophysical technologies. These are Konstantin Buteyko, who developed the technique in the early 80's, according to the CIA, and Vlail Kaznacheyev, who is described as a "well-known leader" in this field.

The four-page report talks about the data obtained at the Soviet Institute of Clinical and Experimental Medicine (IKEM), based in Novosibirsk.

Buteyko died in 2003 at the age of 80 and was the head of the laboratory of alternative medicine. He is known for his research on deep breathing and the treatment of asthma. He also did research on extrasensory perception.

Buteyko's method, the report says, specifically involved doctors trying to achieve a physical transfer of bioenergy in order to help patients treat asthma, allergies, chronic bronchitis, pneumonia, and heart disease.

The volunteers were placed in the middle of the room, placed between two concave mirrors, while the scientists tried to "transmit psychic energy" to the patient from afar. It was believed that the mirrors focus the psychic energy.

Kaznacheyev, who the CIA describes as "related" to IKEM, was known for his work as a biologist, the report says, and was the author of works in which scientists tried to physically transmit images of geometric shapes (such as squares or circles) to each other.

The report says that Kaznacheyev never spoke about whether the Soviet military eventually showed interest in this research.

The fact that the USSR was passionate about psychic technologies was well known for decades. Back in the early 60s, Nikolai Khokhlov, a former KGB agent, fled to the West-in 1954, he talked a lot about these experiments. In September 1966, Nikolai Khokhlov told a conference that there was "a certain interest in parapsychology" in the Soviet Union.

In the material of the newspaper La Vanguardia, it is specified that about 3,000 people took part in the Novosibirsk experiments on the transfer of psychic energy in 1987-88. Interestingly, the publication decided to illustrate the material with a frame from the American film The Men Who Stare at Goats ("Men who Stare at goats", in the Russian box office — "Mad Special Forces") about psychic experiments that took place in the American army. The film was produced and starred George Clooney.
