The Russian scientist Dr Nikolai Kozyrev is in many ways a forerunner — the father of today’s efforts to re-interpret physics in a way that does not contradict intuitive understanding. Our efforts to reconcile the inherent contradictions of the standard model of physics, firmly based as it is on Einstein’s relativity and Quantum Mechanics, have brought less than satisfying results.
Kozyrev has measured spin or torsion field effects at a time when Western science was busy smashing atoms into ever smaller fractions. He investigated time and the aether before most of us in the West ever thought of questioning the workability of our modern interpretations of the universe.
A most welcome effort to increase our awareness of Kozyrev’s outstanding work is a book chapter on David Wilcock’s site, which introduces him with the following words:
Dramatic scientific evidence that all of physical matter is formed by an “aether” of invisible, conscious energy has existed since at least the 1950s. Renowned Russian astrophysicist Dr. Nikolai A. Kozyrev (1908-1983, pronounced Ko-zir-ev,) proved beyond any doubt that such an energy source had to exist, and as a result he became one of the most controversial figures in the history of the Russian scientific community.
The awesome implications of his work, and of all those who followed him, were almost entirely concealed by the former Soviet Union, but with the fall of the Iron Curtain and the advent of the Internet we are finally gaining access to “Russia’s Best-Kept Secret.”
Two generations of remarkable research by thousands of Ph.D. level specialists have emerged from Kozyrev’s seed findings, which completely change our understanding of the Universe.
With our prominent mention of him in this book, we hope to permanently establish his historical importance and impact to our colleagues and readers.
After having heard of Kozyrev in the 90s, I came upon his name again in a recent issue of NEXUS magazine, where a summarized version of David Wilcock’s book chapter is published under the title: The Aether Science of Dr N. A. Kozyrev. That short version, published in NEXUS, is copied here:

THE AETHER SCIENCE OF DR N.A. KOZYREV
by David Wilcock @ 2006
(a more extensive version of this article can be found here)
Dramatic scientific evidence that all of physical matter is formed by an “aether” of invisible, conscious energy has existed for decades.
Renowned Russian astrophysicist Dr Nikolai A. Kozyrev (1908-83) proved beyond any doubt that such an energy source had to exist, and as a result he became one of the most controversial figures in the history of the Russian scientific community.
The awesome implications of his work, and of the work of all those who followed him, were almost entirely concealed by the former Soviet Union, but with the fall of the Iron Curtain and the advent of the Internet we are finally gaining access to “Russia’s best-kept secret”. Two generations of remarkable research by thousands of PhD level specialists has emerged from Kozyrev’s seed findings, which completely change our understanding of the Universe.
An unseen medium of energy
The aether’s existence was widely accepted without question in scientific circles until the early 20th century, when the Michelson-Morley experiment of 1887 was co-opted to “prove” that no such hidden energy source existed.
However, more recent breakthroughs involving “dark matter”, “dark energy”, “virtual particles”, “vacuum flux” and “zeropoint energy”, to name a few, have brought reluctant Western scientists to acknowledge that there must indeed be an unseen energy medium throughout the Universe. As long as you use a benign term like the “quantum medium” and not the forbidden word “aether”, you can talk about it in the mainstream press without much fear of ridicule.
One early example of proof for the existence of the aether comes from the respected physicist Dr Hal Puthoff. He frequently mentions experiments from the early 20th century, conducted before quantum mechanics theory even existed, that were designed to see if there is any energy in “empty space”.
In order to test this idea in the laboratory, it was necessary to create an area that was completely free of air (a vacuum) and lead-shielded from all known electromagnetic radiation fields by using what is known as a Faraday cage. This airless vacuum space was then cooled down to absolute zero or -273°C, the temperature where all matter should stop vibrating and thus produce no heat.
These experiments proved that instead of an absence of energy in the vacuum, there is a tremendous amount of it, from a completely non-electromagnetic source!
Dr Puthoff has often called this a “seething cauldron” of energy in very high magnitudes. Since this energy could still be found at absolute zero, this force was dubbed “zero point energy” or ZPE, whereas the Russian scientists usually call it the “physical vacuum” or PV.
Established mainstream physicists Dr John Wheeler and Dr Richard Feynman calculated that the amount of zero-point energy in the space volume of a single light bulb is powerful enough to bring all the world’s oceans to the boiling point!
Clearly, we are not dealing with some weak, unseen force but, rather, a source of almost impossibly grand power which would have more than enough strength to sustain the existence of all physical matter.
In the new view of science that is emerging from aether theory, all four of the basic force fields, whether gravity, electromagnetism, weak nuclear force or strong nuclear force, are simply different forms of the aether/ZPE.
Professor M. T. Daniels found that the density of the gravitational energy near the surface of the Earth is equal to 5.74 x 1010 (t/m3). (Let us not forget that gravity would simply be another form of aether in this new model.)
Prof. Daniels’s finding means that drawing a sizeable 100 kilowatts of this “free energy” power from the gravitational field dips into an extremely tiny 0.001 per cent of the natural energy that is being produced in that area. (See New Energy News, June 1994, p. 4.)
Research conducted by Dr Nikola Tesla led to his statement in 1891 that the aether “behaves as a fluid to solid bodies, and as a solid to light and heat”, and that under “sufficiently high voltage and frequency” it could be accessed – which was his hint that free energy and antigravity technologies are possible.
Let us pay special attention to Tesla’s statement that the aether has a fluid-like effect when we are dealing with solid objects, as this ties in directly with the work of Dr N. A. Kozyrev.
In order to truly grasp Kozyrev’s work and related findings, certain new analogies for physical matter are required. Kozyrev’s work forces us to visualise all physical objects of matter in the Universe as if they were sponges submerged in water. In this analogy, we should consider the sponges as having remained in water for a long enough period of time that they are completely saturated.
Bearing this in mind, there are two things we can do with such sponges underwater: we can decrease the volume of water that they contain or increase it by very simple mechanical procedures.
1. Decrease: If a submerged, saturated sponge is squeezed, cooled or rotated, then some of the water inside of it will be released into its surroundings, decreasing its mass. Once the sponge is no longer disturbed, the pressure on the millions of tiny pores is relieved, causing it again to absorb water and expand back to its normal resting mass.2. Increase: We can also pump more water into the sponge in its rest state, such as by heating (vibrating) it, thus causing some of the pores to expand with more water than they can comfortably hold. In this case, once we relieve the added pressure, the sponge will naturally release its excess water and shrink back down to its normal resting mass.
Though it would seem impossible to most people, Kozyrev showed that by shaking, spinning, heating, cooling, vibrating or breaking physical objects, their weight can be increased or decreased by subtle but definite amounts. And this is but one aspect of his amazing work.
Dr Kozyrev’s background
Since the Western world is largely uneducated about Kozyrev, some biographical and research information is in order. Far from a being a “crank” or “crackpot” scientist, he was in fact considered one of the pre-eminent Russian thinkers of the 20th century. Kozyrev had his first scientific paper published at the tender age of seventeen, and other scientists were amazed by the depth and clarity of his logic.
His main work was in astrophysics, where he studied the atmospheres of the Sun and other stars, the phenomenon of solar eclipses and radiation equilibrium. By age twenty he had already graduated from the University of Leningrad with a degree in physics and mathematics, and by age twenty-eight he was widely known as a distinguished astronomer who had taught at several colleges.
Kozyrev’s abundant life took a most unfortunate and difficult turn in 1936, when he was arrested under the repressive laws of Josef Stalin, and in 1937 he began 11 torturous years enduring all the known horrors of a concentration camp. In this state, he mused deeply upon the mysteries of the Universe, paying attention to all the patterns that exist in life, wherein so many different organisms show signs of asymmetry and/or spiralling growth.
From his illuminated observations, Kozyrev considered that all life-forms might be drawing off an unseen, spiralling source of energy, in addition to their normal properties of gaining energy through eating, drinking, breathing and photosynthesis.
Kozyrev theorised that things such as the direction of a shell’s spiralling growth and which side of the human body will contain the heart are determined by the direction of this flow. Should there be an area somewhere in space-time where the energy flow spiralled in the opposite direction, then he would expect shells to grow in the opposite direction and the heart to be in the opposite side of the body cavity.
Kozyrev suggested that life couldn’t form in any other way, because it is actively drawing off this spiralling energy to sustain itself and must therefore follow its proportions every step of the way. In this sense, we can think of the skeletal system as an “antenna” for this energy.
When Kozyrev was finally rehabilitated from the prison camp in 1948 and could return to his field of expertise, he made many predictions about the Moon, Venus and Mars, which were validated by Soviet space probes more than a decade later. This then earned him the distinction of being a major pioneer in the Soviet space race. In 1958, Dr Kozyrev again aroused worldwide controversy by proclaiming that the Moon exhibits volcanic activity in the Alphonsus crater.
US Nobel Prize winner Dr Harold Urey was among the small group who believed that Dr Kozyrev’s theory of volcanic activity on the Moon is correct, and he urged NASA to conduct an investigation. As a direct result, NASA launched the enormous Moon Blink project, which later confirmed Dr Kozyrev’s assertions by finding significant gas emissions on the Moon.
However, not all of Kozyrev’s work was quite so readily assimilated into the mainstream world of NASA.
The science of time
In the winter of 1951-52, Dr Kozyrev began his foray into the world of exotic physics, with the first of what became an exhaustive series of 33 years’ worth of very intriguing and controversial experiments. As we said, the spiraling energy patterns in nature unveiled themselves to the initiated eyes of Dr Kozyrev while in the concentration camp. His “direct knowledge” informed him that this spiraling energy was in fact the true nature and manifestation of “time”.
Obviously, he felt that “time” as we now know it is much more than just a simple function for counting duration. Kozyrev urges us to try to think of a cause for time, something tangible and identifiable in the Universe that we can associate with time.
After pondering this for a while, we see that time is ultimately nothing but pure, spiralling movement. We know that we are tracing a complex spiralling pattern through space thanks to the orbital patterns of the Earth and solar system.
And now, “temporology”, or the science of time, is under continual active investigation by Moscow State University and the Russian Humanitarian Foundation, inspired by Dr Kozyrev’s pioneering work. On their website, they state:
“In our understanding, the ‘nature’ of time is the mechanism
