Amid the Cold War era, combat tactics began evolving into more insidious techniques. Soviet leaders focused on cerebral battlefields accessed through psychic espionage and mind control. KGB agents sought super soldiers that could take down opponents without any physical contact. Rather than deploying tanks or armed troops, Russians unleashed microwave frequency weapons and clairvoyant spies. Although such feats sound like the work of science fiction, they were closely monitored by allied forces. One person of particular interest to the United States government was a woman who possessed unbelievable telekinesis abilities. Stranger still, her supernatural achievements are detailed in multiple federal reports.
The Soviet Psychokinetic
Nina Kulagina was born in St Petersburg during the mid-1920s. At just 14 years old she was recruited to fight against the Nazis in World War II. While enlisted with the Red Army, she suffered a serious injury that abruptly ended her military career. Years passed and the veteran eventually got married and had children. Yet the introverted domestic engineer would soon experience a series of bizarre events which would change her life forever. It all unfolded when she was particularly angry and noticed certain objects surrounding her moved significantly. The frightened mother believed it was poltergeist-type activity. However, as the months progressed she noticed a direct connection with dramatic moods and items drastically repelling from her. Intrigued, Nina decided to dedicate herself to honing these emerging psychokinetic skills.
Developing telekinesis proved to be quite a challenge. Initial attempts to harness the emotionally-driven energy at will were unsuccessful. Undeterred, she continued practicing and eventually found herself capable of moving small matchsticks through intentional thought. As Kulagina grew more confident she successfully progressed onto heavier items. Simultaneously other psychic talents emerged. She knew what was inside the pockets of strangers and could ‘see’ colors while blindfolded with touch alone. The rigorous cognitive training gradually started taking a toll on her health. While being hospitalized for exhaustion, medical staff observed Nina’s inexplicable capabilities firsthand. Suddenly the reserved homemaker was wanted by state authorities.
Documented Paranormal Phenomena
Kulagina had caught the attention of parapsychologists and doctors throughout Russia. Many were skeptical regarding the claims of her supposed otherworldly accolades. Forty scientists— including two Nobel Prize laureates, studied the enigmatic housewife and conducted various regimented experiments. To the experts’ astonishment, she repeatedly passed numerous tests under controlled conditions with a staggering rate of proficiency. After verifying the validity of her telekinetic competence, physicians performed examinations. Results revealed that Nina’s heartbeat, brain waves, and electromagnetic field were measurably altered during psychokinesis. Each session was carefully monitored by researchers. Here are some of the intriguing paranormal accomplishments they recorded and filmed:
- Physically moving objects & altering their rotation.
- Cracking an egg then reassembling the shell fragments.
- Imprinting images on undeveloped film.
- Magnetizing or demagnetizing things.
- Altering living cells and organic tissue.
- Modifying essential physiological functions.
- Affecting internal organs such as the heart.
Investigators forced Kulagina to work a strict regimen involving constant metaphysical assignments. Ultimately the strain of intense mental stress resulted in irreparable bodily harm. She lost weight, suffered from debilitating migraines, and succumbed to a heart attack. Family members suspected the fatal coronary episode was induced by her taxing psychic tasks. Some dismiss this case entirely and believe it was merely disinformation deliberately leaked by communist informants. However, the American government was genuinely concerned about her clairvoyance. Declassified documents from the US Army, CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency, and Office of the Surgeon General outline Nina’s transcendental abilities. Sometimes the truth really is stranger than fiction.
