Many people have heard about the sharpening of razor blades using model pyramids. This was discovered back in the 1960’s by a Czech scientist and was popularized to the west in the book called “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”. It was thought that if you place a razor blade in a miniature pyramid, it would stay sharpened longer and even sharpen. The effect that produced this was called “Pyramid Power”.


Many believed the pyramid generated an unknown field or force that caused these phenomena. Also, it was thought that food would be preserved longer if placed in a pyramid. This theory was tested by Dr. Volodymyr Krasnoholovets, a theoretical physicist from Ukraine and a member of the Institute of Physics, who as I mentioned contacted me in January of 2000. This institute was one of the top research institutes of the former Soviet Union and some of its scientists have developed instrumentation for the MIR space station, soviet spacecraft, and other technologies. Please keep in mind that these people were the top scientists of the former Soviet Union.

To test this theory, Dr. K placed razor blades from 4 different companies in a resonator made of two identical rectangular plates of organic glass. One plate faced the West and the other the East. Thus it was a prototype of a pyramid. Blades were left in the resonator for 30 days. He than compared his results with a control group that was not placed in the pyramid using a scanning electron microscope. The results showed that there was a significant changing in the fine morphological structure of the test blades; the so-called “sharpening” of the cutting edge of the razor blades in fact took place in blades that were placed in the pyramid.

Here is the description of the experiment by Dr. K.

Dr. Krasnoholovets

analyzes recent results on the constitution of the real physical space

“Our investigation was related with the cutting edge (point) of a razor blade, but before putting it into a pyramid, a small reference specimen was cut out of the blade. We studied razor blades produced by four different companies. Investigation of the structure of the cutting edge point of the reference specimen and of the specimen subjected to the hypothetical field was carried out by scanning electron microscope JSM. The exposure time lasted 30 days. Fragments of the cutting edge of one of them (a “Gillette” blade) are presented for comparison in the figure (below right). The control specimen and test specimen is shown in micrographs a and b, respectively. Figure a shows that the fine structure on the control specimen is substantially smoothed on the edge of the blade. Figure b shows the sample, which stayed in the pyramid for a month. The coarse structure can be seen to be well preserved (i.e. thus a sharpening of the edge).”

Thus the blade appears to have been sharpened by being exposed to the pyramid. When the whole system was rotated 90 degrees, no distinctions are observed. Therefore the blade has to be oriented in a specific orientation for the sharpening effect to occur. He did minimize and control the effects of air quality, pressure, and other variables to keep them constant so they would not have any effects between the two experimental groups.

Dr. K. has scientifically demonstrated that the pyramids can affect the structure of metals, in this case, razor blades. So, the observations in the 1960’s that pyramids do sharpen razor blades if placed in a certain orientation in the pyramids are correct. The most important question is what is this field or energy that the pyramid produces to cause all these results in biological and non-biological materials.

Interestingly, a device, called “Tessy”, which was developed by a Ukrainian researcher can possibly measure and map out these fields. In fact, Dr. K. has tried to develop an enhanced version of Tessy and other similar devices such as “Demon” and “Urga”. These devices allowed researchers to do preliminary mapping of this field in the Russian Pyramids. The device shows the relative value of flow of this energy. The researchers have plotted the energy both inside and outside the pyramid in zones with its intensity of flow and below is a summary of their results.

The relative intensity of this field is measured in “decibels”:

  • Zones with intensity up to 3 decibels is considered good for most people

  • Zones with the intensity of 3 to 5 decibels are not comfortable and people should not stay in that area for more than 5 hours (in other cases alimentary canal and cardiovascular diseases are developed)

  • Zones with intensity of 5 to 7 decibels are very uncomfortable and people should not stay there for more than 1 hour (if more than 1 hour, then changes in biochemistry of blood have been observed)

  • Zones with intensity of 7 to 9 decibels are dangerous. Experiments were performed on mouse and rats in this zone and are geopathogenic

Distribution of these fields in the pyramid:

  • Center - very strong 9 decibels (near the top of for the largest Russian Pyramid)

  • Over the pyramid -very strong and radiates upwards 7-11 decibels (the largest Russian Pyramid)

  • Beyond the pyramid -along East-West line the radiation is about 3 times more intense than along the North-South line

  • Below Pyramid - Radiates downward and is over 5 decibels (for large pyramids)

For pyramids with the height of 2m the device measured the field of about 2 to 4 decibel. These results of Dr. K. are contrary to what the Russian researchers have observed. According to them, there have been no detrimental effects of the pyramid energy fields. Thus more studies need to be done to ascertain if there are negative effects of these fields. I asked Dr. K. for more information and he told me that when the largest pyramid was being constructed, some of the workers high up would lose consciousness and have to be brought to the ground and moved away from the pyramid. It would be important to know if this was the case.

What is this field exactly? Dr. K. explains his discovery of this field by first stating that the Great Pyramid was built to intentionally amplify basic energy fields of the Earth on a subatomic, quantum level. He calls these fields’ inerton fields or waves and has measured them in model pyramids. He proposes that the Great Pyramid is a resonator of these fields produced by the earth. It would be a new physical field like the electromagnetic or gravitational field. This field is what affects the materials placed in the pyramids and caused the sharpening of the razor blades.

This inerton field is generated due to friction of moving elementary particles through space. Dr. K does not believe that space is emptiness like Einstein claims but is filled with a substrate, some kind of an ether, as scientists in the 19th century and early 20th had believed. There is more data recently to support the presence of this space substance.

It is hypothesized that atoms of the earth vibrate and interact with the ether generating inerton waves. The Great Pyramid concentrates these waves and is saturated with them. These waves then cause the changes in the materials. Did the builders of the Great Pyramid know of these waves and built it as a resonator of them? He would like to measure this field in the Great Pyramid to prove his theory. Inerton waves spread in the resonator along two mainstream directions, which correspond to the East-West line and the vertical line.

Dr. K. is also researching the relationship between this inerton field and paranormal phenomena. He has been quoted as saying to me that,

“All paranormal phenomena are caused by the presence of the inerton field in nature. The field when under resonance exhibits very unusual effects.”

This is an incredible statement to make and we will see what his future research brings. In the meantime, our researchers are attempting to measure this field, quantify it, and discover what it actually is.

In conclusion I would like to say that as a scientist, I would be the first to admit that these studies need to be repeated and confirmed by other institutions. Thus, this is one of the main purposes of the “International Partnership for Pyramid Research” which I have formed with the Golod’s.


Implications of these results

I do not think anyone reading the results above would not be amazed at positive changes that had occurred in experiments with biological and non-biological materials. I remember saying on one radio program if that 1/10 of what the Russians and Ukrainians claim is true, this would have great benefits for our world. Let us discuss some of the applications of this research, some of which are obvious and some not so obvious.

The medical results would have a huge impact on our health care in the United States and all over the world. To be able to strengthen the bodies’ immune system against diseases would be a big step towards preventive medicine. This would not only allow the average person to be more healthy, but especially individuals fighting certain diseases and illnesses can strengthen their immune system to help get well faster and more efficiently. Also, elderly people have a decline in their immune system and this could play an important factor in keeping them healthy longer and leading more productive lives. Also we have the very important application to the health of newborns and their survival rate.

We should also not miss the applications to Veterinary Medicine and the care of animals. One study not discussed above is the applications to pharmaceuticals. It was shown that pharmaceuticals exposed to the pyramids appear to be more effective and with less side affects. We could all appreciate this aspect of medicine.

We also saw results that the pyramids could have on the behavior of individuals. It seems our society succeeds poorly in rehabilitating criminals and this may be a method that could be explored. Also, its use in combating drug and alcohol additions would be very useful in our society today. We must be careful here because we are talking about behavior modification and this raises important questions. Who is determining what the behavior should be and who is controlling it? Can this be used to control behavior in certain parts of the population? Again these questions need to be asked and explored.

A very important factor is that for many of these results to occur, the person does not need to be actually in the pyramids. Drinking water placed in the pyramids seems to produce this effect also. In addition, as seen with the newborn studies, intravenously administered glucose solutions after pyramid exposure also produce similar results. This is very important for the application of these results since everyone cannot go to Moscow to be in these pyramids or build their own large pyramid in their backyard.

Bottles of water and glucose solutions could be produced and then exported to other countries and distributed by reliable sources. Of course, you must have some regulation and control and this brings up a problem that I do not want to get into. So, the applications of this could be very practical and inexpensive. It is interesting to note that currently when you visit the pyramids in Russia, you can take home bottles of water that have been placed there for days and weeks. So, this application is happening right now. An important test we need to do is to determine the differences in strength and results of animals placed directly in the pyramid, those giving a distilled water solution to drink that was placed in the pyramid, and intravenously administering a glucose solution also that was placed in the pyramid. It may be that there is a difference in the effectiveness and this needs to be determined.

The environmental implications are obvious. If we have found a way to repair the ozone layer, this would have positive effects on our environment. This is an area of pyramid research that needs to have further studies done. If in any way the pyramids could help modify our atmosphere and weather to our benefit, we need to explore this in depth.

As mentioned above Alexander Golod predicted that the large hole in the ozone layer in Northern Russia would repair itself before he built the pyramid.

The results of the studies on carbon and silicon materials could have an application with our computer technology. Also changes have appeared to occur in superconductivity due to the effect of the pyramids. So, we have just begun to explore this application.

Can you imagine the applications to agriculture in especially countries with low food supplies? To be able to increase the yield of crops when a limited number of seeds are available would be a great benefit to the food supply of that country or area. If exposure to seeds in pyramids makes the crops more resistant to droughts, this would be an added effect to food production.

Increase in oil production would help our energy supply. Radioactive waste control would help benefit our environment. In fact the Golod’s have suggested its use in the Chernobyl submarines, which use nuclear power to minimize the toxicity of the nuclear waste produced.

In conclusion, it appears that the Russian and Ukrainian scientists have demonstrated scientifically that these pyramids do affect biological and non-biological materials.

As mentioned several times in this chapter, it is important that other institutions and scientists repeat the results of this research. This is one of the goals of the International Partnership for Pyramid Research. In closing this chapter, I think it is important to emphasize that this work was not done by some unknown or obscure institutes and by a handful of researchers with minimum or questionable qualifications. What we have here is coordinated research by at least 8 major academic and industrial institutes and over a dozen major researchers and their staff. Also millions of dollars was poured into this research with government approval and support.
