This occurred when Lev Kolodny visited Mikhailova’s apartment.
He was busily writing down notes during an interview when, glancing up, he suddenly observed the top of his fountain pen creeping over the lace tablecloth toward him.
"A lump stuck in my throat," he said. The top seemed almost to glide above the uneven surface of the lace. His hostess Mikhailova smiled as a glass tumbler also crept along behind Kolodny's pen top.
"Both objects moved to the edge of the table as if they were in harness. The tablecloth wasn't moving - the other glasses beside mine were still sitting there. Could she somehow be blowing on them to make them move? There was no draft of cold air and Mikhailova wasn't breathing heavily. Why didn't a jar in their path also move? I ran my hands through the space between Mikhailova and the table. No threads or wires. If she was using magnets they wouldn't work on glass."
Kolodny picked up both moving objects, examined them, felt them all over, hoping to find some clue. He put the glass over his pen top to form a dome. Mikhailova seemed to be intrigued with this arrangement. She glanced at the pen top as she sipped tea. The top of the pen sped from side to side underneath the glass.
"What kind of energy could have caused this motion, and what laws does it work on?" Kolodny wondered……
