“A hot summer day. Extending far away, a pale blue cloud; a giant sky dome with fluffy clouds stretched over the fields and bushes. I was flying about 300 meters above the ground, with a distant lake – a bright spot, extending in the haze – as my point of reference…
…During my flight, I was supported by a small flat rectangular platform, slightly larger than the face of a chair, with a pole and two handles that my hands grasped and navigated the device. bag. Is this science fiction? I wouldn't say the same…”
This is an excerpt from Chapter 5 of the book "My World" by Viktor Stepanovich Grebennikov. Grebennikov (1927-2001) was a naturalist, entomologist, and painter. He is widely known as the discoverer of the Cavernous Structures Effect (CSE) or the Honeycomb Effect of honeycomb structures.
In 1988, Grebennikov made another curious discovery, attributed to the anti-gravitational effects of the chitinous wings and shells of some insects. Since then he has built himself a particular flying device that allows him to fly at speeds of thousands of kilometers per hour.
CSE . effect
Once at work, when Grebennikov moved his hand over a bowl filled with fragments of honeycombs on the table, a miracle happened:
“I suddenly felt warmth radiating from them. I touched the broken pieces of insect nests with my hands – they were cold, but above us, we felt a distinct heat… Besides, on the side of my fingers, I felt some unsettled convulsions. known… And as I pushed the barrel with the beehives to the end of the table and leaned over, I felt like I was on a lake – my head was getting lighter and bigger, my body was falling, and my eyes were falling. He saw flashes of lightning and tasted an electric battery in his mouth. I feel a little nauseous…” he wrote in the book.
Grebennikov said, not only does he, but everyone feels a special "field" emanating from the hive such as honey bees, worker bees, leafcutter bees, wasps, etc. They are warm or cold or shady. ran, or sometimes as a special medium thicker and more sticky. Some people feel their hands are heavier, some feel their hands are pushed up; Some people feel their fingers and hand muscles are numb, they feel dizzy, and their mouth is salivating.
This field is like "gravity" that can penetrate any obstacle whether it is a card, a porcelain bowl, or a thick layer of metal. However, this field cannot be measured with instruments such as thermometers, ultrasonic detectors, magnetometers, galvanometers, radiometers, or chemical analyzers. But people feel it.
Grebennikov calls his discovery the "Cavernous Structures Effect" (CSE) or the "Honeycomb Structure Effect".
To prove the existence of the CSE field, Grebennikov set up a sealed glass jar, inside which hung a stick of charcoal with a thin string made of spider silk, at the bottom of which poured a little water to remove the particles. Static electricity may appear in dry air. When bringing a wasp nest, honey bee hive, or a grain of cereal close to the glass vase, the charcoal stick will automatically rotate on the hanging rope. Even if the glass vase is protected by a thick steel tube, the effect of the CSE field does not change.
According to Grebennikov, the CSE field can inhibit the growth of saprophytic soil bacteria, yeasts, and other plants as well as promote the germination of wheat seeds, or change the behavior of insects: causing leaf-cutter bee larvae can fluoresce, causing adult bees to become more active, causing clocks or computers to malfunction or malfunction…
More specifically, Grebennikov says the human hand, with its tubular vertebrae, joints, ligaments, blood vessels, and fingernails, are also powerful CSE field emitters, capable of powerful rotation of the lead rods in a glass vase from a distance of several meters. This is also what makes Grebennikov think that everyone has superpowers. The number of people who can teleport light objects on a table, keep them suspended in the air, or stick objects to the hand like a magnet is far greater than we think.
Grebennikov's CSE discovery is presented in the Museum of Agronomy and Environmental Protection near Novosibirsk, which he established in 1976.

The flying platform – anti-gravity object
In 1988, when Grebennikov was examining the body parts of several insects under a microscope, he accidentally placed a piece of chitin beetle wing on another piece of wing. Suddenly, the wing released from the tweezers, and for a few seconds, it suspended itself above the other wing, rotated a few degrees clockwise, slid to the right, turned counterclockwise, swung, and then fell onto the microscope stand.
Grebennikov tied several pieces of wings with a string into a chain, and he could only succeed when he placed the chain vertically on the table, and what he got was a block of chitin wings that were stacked vertically. , the layers are separated by a small space. That is, the pieces of chitin wings are suspended in the air. When he dropped a relatively large object like a paper pin on top of this chitinous wing, it couldn't fall into it, something pushed it up and to the side.
Before that, in 1981, when Grebennikov was performing experiments, he suddenly discovered a cocoon of a Bathypletes beetle that could jump on its own. He writes in the book:
“… When there is sunlight, the cocoon jumps on its own. …It can jump 30mm long and 50mm tall… That means the cocoon can lift itself to a height of 30 times its width.”
Based on these strange findings, Grebennikov built his platform - his strange flying object.
Structure of flying objects
Grebennikov's flying object is an incredible design, it has no engine, no wing system to create aerodynamic lift, nor does it have a fuselage to isolate the occupants of the plane from the environment. outside. It is a rectangular platform made of wood that can be folded like a suitcase or as an artist's toolbox. It can therefore be camouflaged without causing suspicion. A 4-segment pole is mounted on the top of the platform, adjustable in height, on top of which is attached a horizontal handle forming a T-shape.
In the center of the handle of the device is an altimeter, in addition, it contains many buttons, switches, and LED indicators. According to the researchers, these details are used to control the take-off, landing, altitude adjustment, airspeed adjustment, circling, lights, and night signals of the device. fly.
The 4th segment of the column includes many details that are connected to the wooden platform and include the actuators that execute the control commands from the handle of the device.
Grebennikov's podium consists of two identical halves. According to an analysis by an expert published in the Russian Journal of New Energy Technology in 2005, the platform used by Grebennikov is the two halves of a Soviet electron microscope container in the 1980s. The top of the platform is fastened to the metal pedestal.
The underside of the podium is still a controversial secret. According to Grebennikov's drawing in the book, the underside of the platform contains four "Chinese folding fans". Each "fan" consists of 9 different fan strips, metal and perforated for a purpose.
According to an analysis published in the Russian Journal of New Energy Technology in 2005, Grebennikov used materials with a honeycomb shape and strong CSE effect, such as the wings of a beetle, to lift the object levitates and makes it move by coordinating and manipulating these materials. These CSE material plates are mounted above the metal fan bands to protect them from the impact of external forces during landing.
First test flight
The first flight with the platform was made by Grebennikov on March 17, 1990. Recounting his first flight, Grebennikov writes:
“I made my first, very unsuccessful and extremely dangerous flight on the night of March 17, 1990. I didn't have the patience to wait for the warm season and was too lazy to go to a deserted area. I already know that night is the most dangerous time for this kind of work.
I had bad luck from the start: the [CSE material] board blocks of the right part of the wooden platform periodically jammed. I should have fixed the problem immediately [before the test flight] but was indifferent to this. I took off right in the middle of the Agricultural Academy campus, mistakenly thinking that at 1 a.m. everyone was asleep, and no one saw me.
The takeoff went well, but within seconds, as the bright windows of the buildings sank below me, I felt dizzy. I should have landed at that moment but was still in the air, which was wrong because a strong force took away my control over motion and weight, and it pulled me toward the city.
…Only on the fourth attempt did I succeed in stopping the horizontal movement, at which point my platform was hanging over Zatulinka, the industrial part of the city. The chimneys continued to smoke silently just below me.
[The next day] TV and newspapers simultaneously reported. The top headlines were: “UFO on Zatulinka” and “Alien Again?”. Which means my flight has been detected. But what did they see! Some people see the “phenomenon” of glowing spheres or discs – many actually see not one but two! Others claimed to have seen a "real disk" with windows and rays of light.
The strange experience of space-time on flying objects
In chapter 5 of the book "My World", Grebennikov said that his flying object has a fairly high speed, between 1,200 and 2,500 km/h. However, unlike normal planes, his flying objects do not create air friction and do not make noise.
People below or around may only see a ball of light or a disk or a cloud with a sharp-angled shape moving out of the normal cloud trajectory. Someone even saw a flat, transparent square, about a hectare in size. It seems that the flying platform has expanded its optical field.
Explaining this phenomenon, Grebennikov said:
“The speed of my flight was quite high, but there was no wind in my ears – the platform's force field 'carved out' from space an invisible column upward, cutting the platform from gravity. the lead of the earth. But it kept me and the air inside the column intact. I think that during my flight, the space seemed to open, and behind me, it closed again.
This could be the reason why the device and its operator are invisible or have a distorted image, like my flight over the Novosibirsk suburb of Zatulinka.”
When he flies, Grebennikov says, a number of "spooky" phenomena will occur within a radius of several tens of meters: unexplained movements of household objects, turning off or on household electrical appliances, and even fire. [first]
During the flights, Grebennikov noticed a camera malfunction: the shutter didn't close and the captured film reels were blown out. In addition, his watch, even the calendar on his watch, was in trouble: they moved more slowly in sync with each other. Sometimes you will find them two weeks behind the current time. But after he finished the tour, they started to come back exactly. [first]
Grebennikov said that on many flights to visit insect sanctuaries, he took insect samples, put them in test tubes, and brought them back, but on most of the trips, when he got home, the insects disappeared. disappeared without a trace from test tubes or containers.
Once the test tube in his pants pocket was crushed into small pieces. Another time, a test tube showed an oval hole with brown edges resembling chitin. At times he felt a burning sensation or there was an electric shock in his pocket – perhaps at the time, the insects went missing.
Once he noticed an insect appearing in a test tube. But it's not an adult wasp [as he caught it], it's still a pupa – the stage before it hatches into a wasp. This insect also died 1 week later.
Grebennikov explains why he tries to stay away from people during his flybys: “if time had been related to gravity, I might have inadvertently broken human relations. results and someone might get hurt when I meet them.”
“ There is no explanation for all of this, but it seems that these phenomena are the result of a time discontinuity, which is complex and dangerous,” he said. Do not leave a piece, even the smallest particle, during the flight or in the landing area.”
A detective story
In 1992, in the Molodost Siberian newspaper, the first draft of the book "My World" was first published along with pictures of Grebennikov flying on a platform. An article with photographs was also published in the journal Tehnika Molodezh (Young Engineering) in 1993.
The article in the Tehnika Molodezh magazine says the book "My World" will include 500 pages and 400 color photographs, it will also show the principle of the drone, the dimensions, and the exterior of the drone will also be to be announced. Grebennikov will fully describe his invention.
But there seems to be some force that does not allow Grebennikov to do so, he was told that such information was forbidden to be published. Grebennikov had to rewrite his entire book. As a result, the officially released book "My World" is only 300 pages long and has a lot of pictures of insects that don't really fit at the end of chapter 5.
Although Grebennikov could not describe his invention in detail in the book, he tried to tell readers the basics of his invention in the hope that based on that information, one might reproduce his invention.
Also in the article published in the journal Young Engineering, the author of the article said that Grebennikov demonstrated flying on his platform in a museum of the Siberian Institute of Agricultural Research and Agrochemicals IN THE WITNESS MANY PEOPLE.
Possibly three photos, one of which depicts Grebennikov standing on a platform, and the second is said to show him flying thanks to the shadow of the platform taken by Russian photographer M. Doval in the city Novosibirsk Street was photographed during that event. It is possible that people did not want these photos in his book, but since it was published in a magazine and his levitation on the same platform was seen by many people, consent was required. he posted them in his book. 
The flying object on display at the Museum of Agronomy and Environmental Protection near Novosibirsk founded by Grebennikov is only a replica of the original object he made. The original object itself also disappeared when he died in 2001, while the museum replica also has only the pole and handle, the wooden platform containing the materials that can lift the object has also disappeared.
Scientific verification of Grebennikov's invention
Grebennikov's findings remain highly controversial to this day. Many people think that Grebennikov's invention is just imagination, and there are many creative and open-minded people trying to prove him right and recreate his invention.
Regarding the Cave Structure Effect (CSE), there are now many verifiers that his findings are correct.
Regarding the phenomenon that the chitinous wings of the beetles can repel each other, even hang on top of each other, which Grebennikov thinks is an anti-gravity effect, many people have tested and given the same results as the videos. clips below:
Even a group of scientists at Moscow University has based on Grebennikov's idea to create another flying platform based on the principle of the Tesla coil.
Review of people and the works of Viktor Stepanovich Grebennikov, Yuri N. Cherednichenko, Senior Researcher at the Laboratory of Physiology, Institute of Physiology and Ecology, Russian Academy of Medical Sciences for know:
“Many readers may feel that [My World] is nothing more than a popular compendium of the entomologist's 60-year experience of scientific observations, supplemented with a few elements. elements of science fiction. But such a conclusion would be profoundly wrong. As a friend of Viktor Stepanovich and someone with profound knowledge of his work – our homes are only 10km apart – I can say I have never met a careful experimental scientist. , conscientious and talented [like him].
Grebennikov is also widely known in the underground science circles – that is, the Russian branch of advanced science that is constantly persecuted by mainstream scientific organizations… It is easy to lose a job at a laboratory if one just shows up. publish a paper on, for example, the evolutionary significance of antigravity mechanisms in insects.
But I believe that such discoveries [by Grebennikov] will not be buried in the manuscripts simply because pragmatism still dominates science… A fanatical faith and idolatry [has] brought science to Our contemporary academia and has become a foreign religion. But a harmonious development will not be possible without breaking down old prejudices and experiences in the process of mastering knowledge.”
