A description of the experience
Psychic Warfare (Threat or Illusion) By Martin Ebon
Larissa Vilenskaya, who left the USSR in 1979, has published a series of volumes on Parapsychology in the USSR (Washington Research Center, San Francisco); she summarized her conclusions on Kulagina's work in the third volume of that series. In her paper "Psycho-Physical Effects of N. Kulagina: Remote Influence on Surrounding Objects," she wrote that the subject had "produced the movement of objects weighing up to 380 grams, at distances of up to two meters from the objects, without touching them and without using any other known physical means." Vilenskaya also reported that Kulagina "successfully moved objects of various shapes and materials placed on a flat surface" and "demonstrated lifting objects weighing up to 30 grams and 'suspending' them in the air."
Miss Vilenskaya, who participated in experiments with Nina Kulagina from 1971 to 1976, listed nine different effects achieved by the Leningrad psychic, ranging from "the movement of single objects to desired or requested directions, with short stops and starts" to "moving one or two objects simultaneously" while they were "partly or entirely submerged in water."
Vilenskaya listed methods used to place shields between Kulagina and the various objects: partial vacuum; constant magnetic fields; water; shields of various shapes, flat and three-dimensional, and made of paper, wood, glass, transparent plastic, ceramics, sheet lead, aluminum, copper sheeting, steel, etc. She reported that the psychokinetic effects were not impeded by these shields, except in the case of the vacuum, where "psychological reasons" may have been at work.
