Viktor Grebbenikov & The Cavernous Structure Effect (CSE)


Well-known member
Recently, the work of a highly obscure Russian entomologist has become available to a much wider audience, a humble and quiet man by the name of Viktor Grebennikov. His life work was the study of natural objects such as beetle wings, honeycombs, stalks of wheat, and flowers. Although he was a consumate inventor and a scientist, above all else, Viktor Grebbinikov was a naturalist. His observation of natural objects lead to the discovery of what he termed "The Cavernous Structure Effect," also referred to as "The Cavity Structure Effect." The Cavernous Structure Effect is capable of exerting many fantastic effects, including:
  • the malfunctioning of electronic devices
  • disruption of clocks ( both mechanical and digital)
  • an invisible resilient "obstacle"
  • gravitational anomalies in objects i.e. - a change in relative weight
  • phosphenes (even I had never heard of this!) Phosphene
  • a "galvanic" taste in the mouth
- and, FLIGHT!

So, what is the Cavity Structure Effect? I'll let Ville Piippola explain:

Cavity Structural Effect
The Cavity Structural Effect (CSE) was discovered in spring 1983 by chance by Viktor S. Grebennikov (1927-2001), entomologist and painter, when he moved his hand over multi cavernous bee nests and felt warmth emanating from them. He started to study the phenomena and found out that the cause of unusual sensations such as warm breezes, cold drafts and tingling in hands, were not heat or a biofield, but the size, shape, number, and the arrangement of cavities formed by any solid objects. (1, 2)

The characteristics of the CSE
  • It cannot be shielded; like gravitation, it affects living organism though walls, thick metal, and other screens.
  • The CSE field does not decrease evenly with distance, but surrounds the multi cavernous object with a system of invisible "shells".
  • It has a stronger impact on living organism when it is directed away from the Sun, and also downwards, facing the Earth's center.
  • When multi cavernous object is moved to another spot, the CSE field builds up in a few seconds or minutes, while the old spot retains a "phantom" perceivable by the hand for hours, and sometimes for months.
  • When multi cavernous object is rotated the CSE increases significantly.
  • Mechanical and electronic clocks placed in a strong CSE field run inaccurately.
  • The CSE zone inhibits wheat grain germination and the growth of saprophytic soil bacteria, yeast and other cultures. Leaf-cutting bees become more active in this field.
  • Humans and animals adapt to the CSE fields. It couldn't be otherwise: we are surrounded by caverns large and small: by grids, cells of plants (as well our own cells), bubbles of foam-rubber, foam plastic, foam concrete, rooms, corridors, halls, roofing, spaces between machine parts, trees, furniture, buildings. (2)
The nature of the CSE
There have been many hypotheses about the physical nature of the CSE, but there is one theory that deserves greater attention. It was developed earlier by Valery F. Zolotariov (1931-2000), Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, and it is now experimentally confirmed. (1, 3)
As a result of a long collaborative research Grebennikov and Zolotariov (1987) describe the discovery as "previously unknown phenomena of interaction between multi cavity structures and living systems, in which de Broglie waves associated with motion of electron flows in the solid walls of cavities create, by interference, a macroscopic field of multi cavity structures, which causes changes in the functional state of living objects located in this field". (1, 3)

In multi cavity structures, where the surface area is repeatedly curved, the super high frequency de Broglie waves are added together and they form, like musical overtones, harmonics with lower frequencies. Thus, by lengthening and strengthening due to the mutual overlap in the cells, they form anti-node maximums of standing de Broglie waves. Running against these passive obstacles, nerve impulses change their frequency and speed, causing not only the apparent sensations, but sometimes also significant physiological changes. (1, 3)

The CSE is caused by the interaction between de Broglie waves and biological systems. Cavities within the solid body are de Broglie wave resonators; they are a source of standing de Broglie waves (longitudinal waves). The rhythmical location of cavities leads to a reinforcement of the effect.(4)

According to B. N. Rodimov (1976, as cited by Frolov, 2001) the walls of multi cavity structures can be considered as the boundaries of the potential electron's box. The group movement of electrons leads to a system of standing de Broglie waves, which have classic frequencies.(4)

The classic frequencies are f = nh/4mL2, where n is an integer number, L is the circumference of cavity in centimeters, and m is the effective mass of the electron.(4) As an example, the classic frequency for 4.9 mm (side to side) diameter honey bee comb cell is calculated. The effective mass of an electron in beeswax is a bit hard to calculate, and therefore, in the calculation the free electron rest mass is used.

f = 1 · 6.626 · 10-34kgm2s-2 / 4 · 9.11 · 10-31kg · (1.7cm)2= 0.63 Hz

Further, Zolotariov gives a formula for the locations of de Broglie wave maximums: D = 2L(N+1)2K, where L is the circumference of the tube, N is the harmonic number of the wave, and K is the number of the anti-node/maximum.(4)

Fig. 2. Leaf-cutting bee nest CSE​

For example, calculated wave maximums (1st harmonic anti-nodes) from the honey bee comb are at the distances of 7, 14, 27, 54, 109, 218 cm, and so on.

As a comparison, Grebennikov reported (1987) CSE maximums from the leaf-cutting bee nest entrances at the distances of 13, 26, 51, 102, and especially in 205 cm. At another leaf-cutting bee nest they were noted at the distances of 4 cm, 13 cm (especially strongly perceptible layer), 20, 40, 80, 120, and 150 cm. (1)

Grebennikov found out that bees and wasps can detect these wave beacons created by their nests. It is necessary for the ground bees to know not to engrave into adjacent nests while constructing their nest cavities, or otherwise the entire underground beecity could collapse. As for the leaf-cutting bees, they need to know where to find finished cavities with necessary parameters. Moreover, one experiment with the hunter wasps showed that they were able to find their moved nest because of a wave beacon created by the nest cavern.(1, 2)

Fig. 3. Flower CSE​

Grebennikov discovered that the flowers of plants also create CSE. By moving a drawing coal over large, bell-shaped flowers (tulips, lilies, amaryllises, mallows, pumpkins), already at a distance, he could feel a "braking" of this detector. And there was another mystery of nature revealed to him by insects. To attract their pollinators, flowers use not only color, odor, and nectar, but also a similar wave beacon, powerful and unstoppable. Additionally he found out that the males of many species of beetles (especially Rhinoceros beetles) have horn cavities that are CSE indicators of specific parameters, which help them to find partners to each other. (1, 2)

Rhinoceros beetle (probably Xylotrupes gideon) in Bali 2010. According to Grebennikov (1987) male beetles horn cavities are CSE indicators of specific parameters.(1) Note that horns are curved and one horn is conical, looking like curved natural vortex surface.

Update (April 29, 2011)

Many secrets of nature may be solved by the recognition of the CSE. Interestingly, it is a mystery how Pelicans know when Lake Eyre is filling in the deserts of central Australia. According to Grebennikov distant rain creates powerful CSE field that has its impact on a large area. The CSE is created by the movement of multi-layered grid of water drops and gaps between them.(2) Maybe Australian Pelicans can detect and indentify distant rains with their bill cavities. Furthermore, there could be many species of birds that can detect CSE.
Viktor Grebbenikov was an extremely practical man and encouraged his readership to test and verify his claims, a quote from Chapter 5 - Flight - of his book My World:

"I must have tried the reader with all these honeycombs of mine ... A separate thick book would be required to describe all my experiments. Therefore I will only mention one thing: my pocket - battery powered calculator often malfunctioned in the CSE field: it either erred, or sometimes its' display window would fail to light up for hours. I used the field of a wasp nest combined with that of my two palms. None of these structures had any effect in isolation. I will also note that hands with their tubular phalanxes, joints, ligaments, blood vessels, and nails are intensive CSE emanators capable of giving a powerful push to the straw or coal indicator of my little instrument from a couple meters' distance. Practically anyone could do it. This is why I am convinced that there are no people with supersensory abilities, or rather that all people have them... And the number of those who from a distance can move lightweight objects on a table, hold them suspended in the air or "magnetically" attached to the hand is far greater than is usually thought. Try it yourself! I look forward to your letters."

So, what did he mean by the human hand being a powerful CSE emanator? This?

Or what about this?

I'd say that from a purely mathematical basis - for the harrumphs emanating from the scientific community - Grebbenikov is on to something!

Now for those who are skeptical that Grebbenikov actually flew I recently found this video from the Bulgarian group. It is incredibly low quality and you can barely see or hear what they are explaining, but, for me personally it enhances the validity of the device.

So far, this is the extent of the research I have done on Viktor Grebbenikov, it dovetails into the parallel research of Wilhelm Reich and Trevor James Constable. I'll cover both of those two in a future post.

Very cool. I'm embarrassed to admit that I've been a nurse all this time and didn't know the hand was a Fibonacci sequence.
The human body builds in very similar sequences:
The saggital plane view inside a femur
A computer image of neurons

The load stress to create trabecular bone probably has a similar pattern to the development of new brain neurons. And the corresponding cavity orientation.

I don't know if it's been disproven buy it's said bumble bees are to heavy to be supported by their own wings and yet they still fly.

Is this the reason for that?
Allegedly, their thorax is a resonating chamber that works in conjuction with their wings. The wings themself don't actually provide lift, but instead provide the vibratory source that causes levitation. Luckily, I still see a good number of bees where I live and can observe them during warmer months.

I think it's a good theory, especially with bumblebees. You can always hear their unique sound signature as opposed to the humingbirds. They sound like the buzz of an electric toothbrush wheras the hummers sound like little helicopters. However, that doesn't mean humingbirds don't have their own CSE structures. Apparently they have the most air sacs/flight bladders of all bird species.

I have to thank you for this thread, Paracelsus. There's some actual practical information in here. Plus, I think you've given me a new hobby. :)
Glad to do it!

Everything I post is with the intent of people investigating the concept, or physically building the device themselves. If you can't personally verify this stuff, what's the practical use of it?

To me The Large Hadron Collider is the scientific equivalent of Howard Hughes' Spruce Goose. Some gargantuan albatross of a project that is perpetually promising to "rewrite physics as we know it!" Conventional science gets lost in abstraction and hypothesizing and forgets that the map is not the terrain.

Grebbinikov built this stuff out scrap material in his home!
