In a way, I'm a child of Khrushchev's thaw, that brief period in the late '50s and early '60s when the new Soviet liberalism was proclaimed and young people like my parents saw new light in communist ideas.

Peaceful coexistence of East and West, by the way, was one of the many new concepts that came out of that era. The genuine enthusiasm of the early '60s is reflected in a number of beautiful songs created then. One of them is "Solnechny Krug," (Sunny Circle, or Let There Always Be Sunshine), a rousing hymn in defense of peace, children and individuality. I myself remember clearly singing it passionately in kindergarten.

Vita discovered "Solnechny Krug" a few weeks before we left for England, and it instantly became a hit with her. I had to put on the record several times a day, and she now knows the words by heart: "Let there always be sunshine, let there always be sky, let there always be mama, let there be me."

As we rushed around looking for cars, houses, work and all the ingredients of our new life, we are almost too busy to notice the effect of our flight from Moscow on Vita and Benedict. Superficially, they are having a ball running around endless empty houses. But Vita is also trying to come to grips with our change of status. "We live in England all the time now, not in Moscow?" she checks several times a day. But then she asks, "When are we getting on the plane to go back to Moscow?" The idea of permanence seems one that is difficult to grasp.

While we were in Moscow, she frequently insisted that "Vita English, not Russian," whereas since we have been here, she has taken to saying, "Ya devochka Vita Russkaya" (I'm little Russian girl Vita) and now denies that she is English. Perhaps it is her way, during this period of bewildering upheaval, of clinging to the roots she knows, or a human instinct to preserve the part of one's identity that is in danger of being swamped by another culture.

She has dropped her usual evening fare of "The Grand Old Duke of York" in favor of a tale or two from her volume of Pushkin's children's stories. And she insists on singing "Solnechny Krug" several times a day, which comes through as having a completely different message in England.

Vita's fascination with "Solnechny Krug" is very endearing to me not just because it means that, at the age of 3, her Russian roots are convincingly firm, but also because I see her as a true messenger of biculturalism. Isn't sunshine something that is needed by all of us? Isn't praying for our mothers' well being something that all of us should do? And don't we, all of us, need to love ourselves in order to love our neighbors?

In macroscopic reality, gravity is determined by mass. In microscopic reality, where the particle mass is practically zero, the rotational form of gravity acts. The rotational form of gravity is formed by means of rotating microparticles, which spin gravitational spheres around themselves, which, as in a whirlpool, attract microparticles to each other.

The paper covers a model of generation of fundamental forces induced by neutrino interference with other particles. Neutrinos fill up vacuum and inter-vacuum space obtaining a long-range action. Fundamental binding “proton-neutrinoselectron” has been defined and its transformation under various conditions into atom of hydrogen or neutron is studied. The paper also considers structuring of nucleus and electron atomic shell. Electron is positioned on stationary shell creating intraatomic and interatomic forces. Fundamental forces are generated due to neutrinos interference of neutron, nucleon and atom. Proposed the impact of neutrinos on origin of gravitation.

Interrelation between gravitation and acts of nature is deemed as a hard proof that the Earth gravitation is a predominant fact in this cohesion. Neutrino flow pressuring towards the Earth center on its way is forming difference abnormal zones within atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere. As a result we are exposed to such natural disasters as earthquakes, volcanoes and climatic changes. Sufficient energy to such acts may be released only due to gravitation.

Neutrino is considered the carrier of gravitation. Earth gravity is formed due to the central Earth core shielding all-penetrating neutrino flow. Neutrino penetrates the Earth interfering fusion reaction on the core surface of our planet and stops motion and pressuring. As consequence neutrino is facing gravity force forwarded to the center of our planet.

A new theory of electricity is needed, first of all, because the modern theory of electricity is built on a conduction current that does not exist in nature. And this paradox is obvious even to schoolchildren who observe currents with negative and positive charges on oscilloscopes. The modern theory of electricity is not able to clearly explain many of the mysteries of electricity. This article explains some of the mysteries that the modern theory of electricity could not explain.

The author of the article did not encounter a single source on the Meissner-Oxenfeld effect, where the version that this effect is explained by the presence of eddy currents in superconducting ceramics would be questioned. But, in the opinion of the author of the article, ceramics in such a state are surrounded by such gravitational fields, which, when cooled, turn into gravimagnetic fields, which, together with the gravimagnetic fields of the Earth, pull all the magnetic fields from the ceramics body.

Two hundred years ago, Faraday received a current with negative and positive charges, which is distributed in the layer of ether adjacent to the conductor. The one who does not know this is not worth going into the theory of electricity. The discovery is based on the realization that in the theory of electricity there is no extraneous force, instead of which an electromotive force acts, formed by the difference in electrical potentials, between the zero potential of the conductor and the negative (or positive) potential of the current source. This difference in electrical potentials creates in the circuit the force of motion of the charges. The difference of electric potentials creates a force, which may well be called Coulomb force. And then it is not clear why it was necessary to invent an outside force.

According to our hypothesis, the conversion of electrons and positrons into each other occurs by replacing the charge motion vector with the opposite vector. This is explained by the fact that all elements of the electron's magnetoelectric system are opposite to all elements of the positron's magnetoelectric system. And this opposite is determined by the vector of their movement in space. Therefore, it is only necessary to change the motion vector of one of the charges to the opposite vector, so immediately this charge turns into its antipode.

The article gives my short life story with a list of my discoveries. May the terrible moralists forgive me, I call these hypotheses discoveries because their logical connectedness and conformity with the materialistic dialectic of thinking does not allow to doubt that truth has been found here.
