Dr Vladislav Lugovenko has spent many years researching geomagnetism, and has described in detail a novel and fascinating principle which he terms The Breathing of the Earth.
This in turn led him to explore biomagnetism and the bioelectric fields
of mammals and fish, the human aura, and finally Indigo Children.
His most recent book, The Indigo Children of Russia,
is not yet available in English. Project Camelot intends to help him
find an American publisher. If anyone is in a position to translate
this book from the original Russian, please contact us.
Dr Lugovenko has known Boriska personally for several years, and in our
conversations with him he recounted several anecdotes in which
Boriska's psychic abilities featured prominently.

The Breathing of the Earth
Dr Vladislav Lugovenko
By Carol Hiltner
as mystical tradition tells us, the Earth is a living system, how might
she be doing that most fundamental process of life known as breathing?
Might evidence for the Earth's breathing not be winessed as
oscillations in the flow of subtle energies through and between the
Earth and the Cosmos?
This was the thinking of
Russian astrophysicist Vladisvlav Lugoveko. And in the course of a
lifetime of research, he has devised experiments that detect and
measure just such an oscillation in this flow. Moreover, his
experiments have been replicated.
During the past decade, Lugovenko's experimental data has revealed not
only that the Earth breathes - with striking similarities to the
breathing patterns of human beings - but that her breathing is
dynamically affected not only by events in the Cosmos but also by human
What is this "Breathing" of the Earth?
of all, Lugovenko has found that there is a daily rhythm. The breathing
is quiet at night. Then, as the Earth spins toward the sunrise, the
particular pattern and amplitude of that day moves like a wave around
the earth, varying gradually according to other influences like sun
spots, meteorological disturbances, earthquakes, and human activity.
There are seasonal fluctuations. For example, the Earth's breathing is
quieter in the winter. And there appear to be longer breathing cycles -
periods of years - that seem to be affected by celestial bodies such as
The following chart shows the fluctuation in the Earth's breathing during the period between 1997 and 2002.
Lugovenko defines the breathing of the Earth as "the temporary
variations of a cosmo-terrestrial field," and refers to both "global"
and "local" breathing:
breathing consists of all possible methods of receiving, processing,
and obtaining energy from external Space through a complex system of
grids and chakras of different calibers. "Local" breathing is a
measurable change of width of zones of regular Hartmann or Curry grids.
The concept of a universal Space energy that people can use to realize
supersensory phenomena has deep roots in cultures of all peoples.
Sacred Indian and Buddhist texts describe this same ancient Space
energy and designate it with the mystical syllable "Om". This syllable
causes an oscillation in the brain that enables various chakras to
accept Space energy.
We call the interaction of this energy with the Earth a
"cosmo-terrestrial field", which is defined as the substance by which
the biopower interaction between Space and Earth takes place. The
cosmo-terrestrial field is a phenomenon on the boundary between the
thin (unmanifest) world and the material (manifest) world.
The cosmo-terrestrial field has many interesting properties, including
whirlwind movement, resonance, and virtually instantaneous distribution
over vast distances (at least within the limits of the Solar System).
This energy can be perceived by highly sensitive people and by
specially created equipment. Each contributor gives his own
determination of the qualities of the field that he researches.
How is it measured?
such measurement is a new endeavor for Western science, and because the
definitions and units of measure are still being worked out,
researchers have each been creating their own means to measure this
Lugovenko uses two primary means. The
first is through a pair of sensors - one copper (placed over a positive
vortex) and one nephrite stone (placed over a negative, or dark,
vortex). Each of these sensors is suspended by wire over a radial
graph, and they both move in opposite directions - that is, one goes
clockwise and the other goes counterclockwise.
At intervals determined by how quickly the direction and amplitude are
changing, Lugovenko observes and records the time and the position of
the sensors in his lab book.
Lugovenko's second means of measurement is the use of dowsing rods and
a pendulum, the accuracy of which he has verified through years of
comparing his dowsing results with read-outs from electronic
instrumentation. He uses copper dowsing rods to locate the positive and
negative energy vortexes.
When I visited Lugovenko's home outside Moscow, he demonstrated his
technique to me. First, he set his intention, then started walking
across the room holding the dowsing rods so they pointed in front of
About five feet from where he had his instrumentation set up, the rods
abruptly separated so they pointed out to each side.
Then he handed the rods to me, and I was able to obtain the same results.
Lugovenko also links with other observers around the world, enabling
him to compare and validate his results globally.
I asked him why, as a senior scientist at a prestigious research
institute, he was conducting these experiments at his home. With a wry
smile, he answered (through a translator), "We used to have the most
advanced instrumentation, but with Perestroika, budgets were reduced,
and this line of research was cut. So I continue it at home, because it
Variations in the Earth's breathing
charting the general characteristics of the breathing of the Earth,
Lugovenko started examining the variations and anomalies. The indented
text below is excerpted from two of his translated articles:
1. Solar activity:
The maximal activity of breathing of the Earth occurs when there is a minimum of solar activity.
2. The Hale-Bopp comet:
the first inhalation of the Earth after its night's sleep is very
interesting. It sets the tone of intensity for the whole day, and
essentially depends on how close the current period is to the longest
day of the year (June 22 in the Northern Hemisphere). The nearer the
date is to June 22, the more powerful is the first morning's inhalation
of the planet. Since 1992, this effect has become stronger each year -
Before the appearance of the
Hale-Bopp comet, the usual period of breathing of the Earth for average
latitudes was 30 to 40 minutes. By the end of March 1997, it had
decreased to about one minute! The value was so slight that it became
difficult to measure. For almost a whole year, the Earth breathed very
People felt this. In the most intense days (at the close of March and
beginning of April, when the comet Hale-Bopp was especially close to
the Earth and to the Sun) there were many calls for first aid, and many
complained of poor health.
3. Religious holidays and prayer:
Poddar, director of the Institute of Application Geophysics in India,
reports repeatedly that the maximum positive readings of the
cosmo-terrestrial field near Madras occur on religious holidays.
Lugovenko found startling shifts in the cosmo-terrestrial field as a
result of the World Peace Meditation in Baghdad in October 2002 (see
the sidebar just below).
What are the implications?
offers clear scientific documentation that the Earth "breathes," and
that her breathing is reactive to stimulation - this being one of the
definitions of what constitutes life.
more significantly, he has shown that the breathing of the Earth is
responsive to human intention; that humanity, through our thoughts and
prayers, radically impacts the Earth.
How Human Energy Affects the Breathing of the Earth
following text (not necessarily the subheadings) is taken from a paper
published by V.N. Lugovenko, M.I. Orlyuk, and N.A. Yudina (see footnote).
Through demonstrating how human activity affects the Earth's breathing,
the examples they describe give us yet another evidence of the positive
effect of global meditation and prayer.
Investigation at the World Summit on Peace and Time, June 22-27, 1999
At the World Summit on Peace and Time (WSPT) in Costa Rica in 1999, one
of the researchers made a number of experiments and investigations of
the biofields and cosmo-terrestrial field in Costa Rica.
From June 22 to 28, 1999, in San Jose, we recorded the temporal
variations of the cosmo-terrestrial field by means of torsion-type
sensors. We recorded the angle of torsion of each sensor. One of them,
made of the stone nephrite, was put in a Hartmann's dark zone
cross-section. The second, a copper sensor, was put in light zone
During the first three days of the Summit, June 22 to 24, temporal
variations of the cosmo-terrestrial field were normal and the
coefficient K was 1-2. But after June 24, the situation changed
considerably. Ratio K at 6:25 a.m. exceeded the norm by more than 100
percent (from 10 to 24). This testifies to the same kind of
considerable increase of Cosmos/Earth bioenergy contact that is usually
distinctly displayed during religious holidays.
We believe that Dr. Ashok, Director of Global Dialogue Institute, was
correct in saying, "The work of WSPT Commissions gradually comes to the
point that the Cosmos/Earth dialogue ... becomes deeper and deeper."
Interestingly, the information about this was withdrawn after two years.
Investigation on the World Peace Meditation on Baghdad, October 2002
In the beginning of October 2002, we learned that a world peace
meditation would be executed at 21:00 Moscow time on October 12: a
vigil for true and permanent peace all over the world. This meditation
was initiated by James Twyman in connection with events in Iraq.
We hypothesized that the breathing of the Earth would vary in some way
under the influence of this meditation of so many thousands of people.
Expecting that there would be a high-powered flow of worldwide
vibrations, we measured the variations of the breathing of the Earth.
And this flow really did take place!
The breathing of the Earth was measured near Moscow, using special
torsion-type sensors at two different points in one room.
Simultaneously, the flow of breathing of the Earth over Baghdad was
measured by the experimentor using a pendulum over a map of Iraq.
At 20:45 Moscow time, the copper sensor began smoothly rotating back
and forth with an amplitude of 7 to 8 degrees. The sensor continued
continuously rocking, until 22:30, when the experimenter stopped
recording for the night.
Prior to 21:00, the pendulum over Baghdad indicated negative energy
over the city. At 21:00, it indicated zero [it was still]. Then, 15
minutes later, the energy abruptly changed to a large positive
indication. It was still showing the positive indication when it was
measured the following morning at 8 a.m.
A Similar Meditation on February 9, 2003
A similar collective meditation with more participants was made on
February 9, 2003, at 20:00 Moscow time. Approximately the same effect
was observed once again. The copper sensor showed an amplitude of 10
degrees within one hour after the beginning of the meditation, but then
measurements were stopped (N.A. Yudina carried out observations in
Troitsk, near Moscow).
Dr. M.I. Orlyuk made observations in Kiev, Ukraine, at the same time,
with the help of a stone sensor. With that sensor, he observed
rotations of 80 degrees at 20:50.
Another researcher, scientist Richard Benishal, was taking readings at
the same time on a Biometer, a device that measures the vitality or
life-force of a person or place in angstrom units. Angstroms are units
of light that all living beings and physical places emit. If there is
dis-ease or low energy, the Biometer registers a low reading, with the
opposite for high energy. Benishal said that a neutral reading would
normally be around 6500 angstroms, but that he has seen readings as
high as 7000 after powerful meditations have taken place in an area.
However, the reading for the area of the vigil's focus was between 9000
and 9500. Richard said he had never seen such a high reading before.
These examples show that collective meditations cause very strong
changes of biopower in the ambient space. These changes are felt by all
people who have increased sensitivity. The closer the people are to the
source of such variations, the more strongly those variations are felt.
If all meditating people direct their thoughts into one place, that is
where it is felt the most.
Our experience measuring the influence of collective meditations on
torsional sensors shows that, with large numbers of people
simultaneously meditating, strong vibrations arise in the
cosmo-terrestrial field, which noticeably influence the breathing of
the Earth. With these sensors, the fluctuations also can be registered.
These remarkable experiments demonstrate that a great number of
meditating people gives rise to such a high-power vortex in the
cosmo-terrestrial field that it is registered quite reliably with the
help of special instrumentation. Thus the effects of large group
meditations can be quantitatively recorded with high objectivity.
This fact will encourage not only spiritual people to join such
meditations, but also anyone else who sincerely wants peace and
happiness on Earth.

east-to-west. Curry grids run diagonally to Hartmann grids, with about
three meters between the lines. Where the two grids intersect, there is
