A Kozyrev mirror, in Russian esoteric literature from 1990s, is a pseudoscientific device made from long sheets of aluminum (sometimes from glass, or reflecting mirror-like material) curled into a cylindrical spiral. It is alleged to focus different types of radiation, including that coming from biological objects, when those objects are placed inside of it.[citation needed] Kozyrev mirrors were used in experiments related to extrasensory perception (ESP), conducted in the Institute of Experimental Medicine of Siberia, division of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Name[edit]

This device is named after the astronomer Nikolai Aleksandrovich Kozyrev, but it was neither invented nor described by him.

Reported uses[edit]

Humans, placed into the spirals, allegedly experienced anomalous psycho-physical sensations.[1]

Kozyrev mirrors were shown in a documentary on the Russian state TV channel[2] and articles about them were published in tabloid newspapers in Russia and Ukraine[3] but not in scientific journals.

There is a claim that during one of early experiments in the arctic village of Dixon, scientists placed an ancient symbol of Trinity into a mirror installation, and perceived a field of force around the setup. The experiment was led by Vlail Kaznacheev, of the Russian Academy of Medical Science[citation needed].

A 1998 Russian patent, RU2122446, "Device for the correction of man's psychosomatic diseases", relates to Kozyrev mirrors.[4]
