In January of 2001, a Dr.Volodymyr Krasnoholovets from the Institute of Physics in the Ukraine contacted me. (The Institute of Physics was considered the top military research institute of the former Soviet Union.) This institute helped develop the Russian cruise missiles, remote sensing devices, satellites, space station technology, and other military technology. Dr. K (as we now call him) identified himself as a senior scientist at that Institute. He told me that in the last 10 years, he and his colleagues were carrying out research in 17 large fiberglass pyramids, built in 8 different locations in Russia and Ukraine. These pyramids varied in size, the largest being 144 feet high and weighing over 55 tons.

I had not been aware of these pyramids but it seemed that people from Russia knew about them. I was told that they are popular tourist attractions and many people visit them. Dr. K sent me photos of these pyramids along with a comprehensive research article about experiments conducted in them, which he and his colleagues wrote. They asked me to post it on our web site and invited me to collaborate with them in their pyramid research. Dr. K explained that the Russians and Ukrainians conducted many kinds of experiments using these pyramids that included such fields as medicine, ecology, agriculture, chemistry and physics. What is significant about this research is that it scientifically documents the changes in both biological and non-biological materials that occur as a result of being placed in these pyramids. So I posted their research article on our web site and subsequently appeared on several major radio programs.

Then in February of 2001, the individual who actually financed and built the pyramids in Russia and the Ukraine contacted me directly. He was Alexander Golod, a scientist and now Director of a State Defense Enterprise in Moscow. He found my web site and saw that I was releasing the research carried out in his pyramids. Alexander does not speak English so most of our communications were carried out through his son, Anatoli. He told me that his father, Alexander, started constructing these pyramids in 1989. The Golod’s wanted to work with me also and to help publicize and continue their research. In two month’s time, I was working with both the builders and some of the major researchers of these pyramids.

Alexander had decided to build these pyramids because he believed that they would produce an energy field that could affect biological and non-biological objects. He even got support from the Russian government for this massive building project and convinced them in 1998 to take a kilo of rocks that had been placed in one of his pyramids on board the MIR space station. He felt the energy fields they produced would help the space station and possibly the entire world. Let us look at these pyramids.

The largest and most recently built of the pyramids is located about 200 miles northwest of Moscow on Novorizhskoe Highway. It is 144 feet high and was completed in 1999. It weighs about 55 tons and cost over 1 million dollars to build. It is made of fiberglass.

The below image is an aerial view of the 144-foot pyramid. This photo was taken from a glider and you can see its countryside location. Notice that it has a sharper slope (greater acute angle) than the Great Pyramid of Giza. The Great Pyramid has a slope of about 52 degrees and these pyramids rise at about a 73-degree angle. The reason Alexander Golod chose this angle was based on experimental designs that also included the mathematical relationship called the Golden Section. In his prototype experiments, it was determined that no metal should be included in the structure of these pyramids, so fiberglass was chosen since it would be strong enough to also withstand the strong winds that occur in and near Moscow. When Alexander Golod was asked why he built these pyramids, he replied

“I have children, I have a grandson, I do it for them. These pyramids are an instrument to make the world a better place to live and benefit mankind”.

Everyone wants a photo in front of the pyramid. People from all over Russia, including government officials, cosmonauts, and even famous Russian actresses visit this largest pyramid and spend time inside it. Millions of people have visited this pyramid and on crowded days, you have to wait in line to enter it. Over the New Year’s weekend, they counted 20,000 people in one day.

The next largest pyramid is the 72-foot pyramid, which is located 15 km from lake Seliger (Ostashkov area of Tver region, Russia). It was completed in June of 1997. Notice that it is exactly one half the size of the largest pyramid (144 ft). As mentioned, the design of these pyramids was based on the Golden Section, used by ancient architects to design many structures. This would dictate that the pyramid sizes must be built in ratios.

Shown below is the next (third) largest pyramid, which is 36 feet high. Notice it is exactly one third the size of the largest pyramid. It is located in Romenskoey, which is a suburb of Moscow. This is one of the first pyramids built and where the first experiments began.

A design factor common to all the pyramids that Golod built is that they must be hollow inside. This design element was determined in experiments using prototype models before the building of the large pyramids. Thus, two important conditions of construction were that the pyramids must have no metal in them and they must be hollow.

Below is a group of pyramids built in an oil field in Bashkiriya, southern Russia to test the effect of a complex of pyramids on the physical and chemical properties of oil. Their sizes are ratios of the large pyramid.

Interest in pyramids in Russia is nothing new, as it even goes back to the turn of the 19th century. This is a pyramid that was built in the late 1800’s to be used as a wine cellar. It is called the EARL ORLOV WINE-CELLER PYRAMID. Supposedly, wine placed in this pyramid tastes better. Even at that time people believed that the pyramid shape could affect certain objects.

In October of 1998, crystals that were placed in one of the Russian Pyramids were brought aboard the RUSSIAN MIR SPACE STATION and remained on board for over a year. Crystals were also brought on the INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION for 10 days by cosmonaut Afanasiev. Alexander Golod believed that these crystals would benefit both the space stations and the world.

The next photo shows Alexander Golod with Cosmonaut Georgiy Grechko and G. Lozino-Lozinskiy during construction of the largest pyramid. G, Lozino-Lozinskiy was the inventor of the Buran rocket, considered the most powerful rocket in the world. Grorgiy Grechko was the Soviets 4th cosmonaut. Future building plans include the construction of a 288-foot pyramid (twice the size of the 144 foot pyramid). They believe that the larger the pyramid, the great the effect it produces.

Interesting photo of the 144-foot pyramid from a distance. This was released from a Russian tourist office. Pictures of these pyramids are included in their brochures. A guard stands vigil night and day at this pyramid.

Meet the guard, Sergey Shuvalov. You can phone him before the journey to make arrangements for a tour. He lives near the pyramid and knows just about everything about it.

You never know what to expect with these pyramids. Soon after the construction of this pyramid near Moscow, botanists noticed extinct flowers starting to grow near it. It is unknown why this has happened and has mystified botanists.

One of the most interesting observations regarding these pyramids comes from Russian Air Force “Radar” (or “Locator” as they call it). The first indication that the pyramids were producing strange atmospheric effects was when the 144 foot or largest pyramid was in the process of being built. The planned pyramid would be composed of 30 main layers or sections of fiberglass. At the completion of the 11th section, Air Force radar picked up an ion column coming right off the pyramid. This ion column was very large and in fact was over 1 mile high.

As the pyramid construction continued, the ion column still remained. At the completion of the pyramid, a special weather balloon was launched to measure this ion column. The results will be discussed in the next chapter.

Alexander Golod had a dream over 10 years ago of building large pyramids to make the world a better place to live.
