in the course of interrogation why because there's been this is like meant no because the psychological techniques are more effective in obtaining confessions than physical abuse and they were off taking they could get what they wanted they could say what they wanted and there was no evidence of what they did or what they said. lake baikal is in east siberia people are drawn to it by its beauty its energy and its benevolent spirits. an old old shaman. said there is
a place where you should sprinkle water and pray to the spirits. and they will guard you. if you really get the impression that something supernatural is happening by caught up with dharma because i'm a physicist good i know it is impossible. a young scientist from switzerland was attracted to this area where religion nature and science intertwine. i try to see by cal in its entirety i didn't know what to expect from this place it's not that i have discovered something new here but rather that i absorb everything that this place all first book used.
more than twenty five million years old. is a little over thirty. the swiss scientists travel to the banks of the oldest lake in the world by ultra light. this tiny. five hundred killers a speeds of up to one hundred seventy kilometers per hour it can fly at three thousand meters where from such altitudes you can examine the bottom of the lake because of the clear waters and his four cameras fixed to be afraid. for us if it's just a scientific endeavor but a personal one. what winds of fate brought the young scientists to the by calibration it all began with a minor research trip. here
quite by chance i came up with the idea of experiments. world's oceans there are a lot of organisms that exposed to the light of a certain spectrum range emit light of a different range and i wondered if this was also the case with the lake. in short discovered luminescent crustaceans in by coles waters. serious research by kal only began in the seventeenth century before that legends travelled around europe that siberia was home to people with the heads of dogs the first expedition destroyed all those myths. peoples. populated with. white fish and a breed of seal with a photographic memory. it
swims close to the shore examines the area closely familiar. but if he. changed even a little the seal. getting close to the seal. is a serious threat. feels natural habitat is water. constantly. for the young. one hundred thirty and grow to one and a half meters in length but on the whole. they like peace and calm. away from their natural habitat. the silence of the
siberian local shamans. and the spirit of by karl itself they pray for health. and good weather. one of the oldest of the world's faiths fervently observed by. shamans are able to fall into a deep trance which they believe lets them see into the future. realized his calling in a dream but didn't believe it at first. that . health was poor. in the end i was completely.
you arrived at by cal he dreamed of seeing the sun foul weather here hinted scientific experiments the lake has a strong character and it's climate is far from what he was it was used to in switzerland. when we first came to lake baikal how the weather was awful but it was raining heavily by cal was harsh. he the first impression i had of by cow which is in fact true to this day was the extreme weather. if it weren't for divine intervention the young scientist wouldn't be able to work at bike for several days heavy downpours prevented even to leave his house his
research was on the verge of shutting down he might just as well have packed up and headed home. it was terrible during our first week here torrential then three llamas came in. for good weather. it was pouring second day the weather did improve with. periods surround every month. on. summer. crops there are special rights when we bring in the milk overread cow or white goat and some other gifts. in the
region buddhism became especially popular in the eighteenth century when monks from mongolia started settling in the area they set up monasteries and temples the biggest of which is the. people come from all over the worlds to this blessid land to meditate to learn or if they really want something to pray to the gods. bring different prayers to places emanating buddhist energy. being for their family . prosperity and success in their work. on the trees here someone's wish locals believe that wish made here will come true but only on condition that you make. and that you don't ask for too much. after spending a few days a. started taking some of the superstition seriously each morning he. and
in the evening he's thankful for successful work. i didn't know what to expect from this place. something new here. not all scientists are as sensitive to local beliefs conducting studies and by some of them refused to accept the existence of any supernatural. according to them it contradicts every law of nature. supernatural. it is impossible. in this respect. protection.
scientific life is connected with. first of all he was born here he joined the local college and thirty years he's been conducting scientific experiments in the area. baikal is a region of high seismic activity with earthquakes a common occurrence for five years the scientists research has provided exact forecasts of earthquakes around by cal. in two thousand and eight. separate from a powerful earthquake it was just as strong as the one that destroyed the fukushima nuclear power station in japan which was washed away by a huge wave. fortunately here the earthquake couldn't produce such a tsunami because they used too small. and in two thousand and eight days before the earthquake we registered some fundamental changes in the election magnetic field. that we had never observed before any other case.
these are only scientific achievements a neutrino detector has been dropped to a depth of one kilometer into the lake. thanks to the pure clear water of baikal the device is able to detect many mysteries not just on the water but also out in space discoveries of this kind are impossible in salty ocean. new detector is designed to help us explore the history or universe. find out how we began. what is happening to it now. what will happen to it in the future it. is only possible if you watch the streams of unique particles
cold neutrinos. with the information of what was there when the universe began. please speak to language. programs and documentaries in arabic it's all here on. reporting from the we'll talk spots that v.o.i.p. interviews intriguing stories for you to. see then try. to find out more visit our big teeth dog called. the olympic torch is on its epic journey to such. one hundred and twenty three
days. through two thousand and nine hundred towns and cities of russia. relayed by fourteen thousand people or sixty five thousand killing. in a record setting trip by land air sea and others face. a leg torch relay. on r t r g dot com. thousands of years ago the region of lake baikal was flat as legend has it the earth shot it creating a rift from which flames bust out scorching everything around people begs the gods to stop screaming the words by and meaning fire and stop. the spirit of file prayer and as time passed water fills the rift this is only the
legend but in reality lake baikal was formed by earthquakes. move you to see you there are a lot of theories what their role be stung to the tonic process he's with. this constantly widening fracture is the result of the movement of to. plates or group of. scientists agree that by call is an ocean in the making because these two tonic plates are apart and this is constantly making by call larger and larger. each. never as a lake existed for as long as bike hell. lakes usually last for no more than fifteen thousand years after that they simply dry out and that's been the case for millions of years this lake though was formed long before human history began remarkably the water content has undergone almost no changes atoll.
is very deep and the water is clear and saturated with oxygen to the deepest parts . and yet it has never changed. a land of science discoveries and the unique nature seemingly frozen in time but by kill the present live side by side with the spirits of the past just like the lake itself locals preserve their own mysteries and traditions. local folklore legends and rituals with great respect. convinced they are absolutely necessary here these rights all date back many more years than many of the scientific research projects her yet they are there learn.
or it. stands for six hundred thirty kilometers covering an area the size of some countries like belgium the netherlands . everybody finds a place in the vast area of by co christians buddhists shamans and old believers of the russian orthodox church they've lived here for more than three hundred years they cross themselves with two fingers and reject modern orthodoxy. their faith and which. those have remained untouched throughout all the centuries their villages have their own unique design he tells his painted in rich summer colors old believers clothing has always been famous for its brightness and neatness as well as embroidered hats and sort of arms. again the sleeves the girl wears wide reinvents it means she's a bride from
a well off family and her father has prepared everything for her to be beautiful at the wedding. he earned. a eulogy. sturgess her. last year there. are well over a spears. worked earlier. i. shared a fear it. will be here. any years yeah. ok. the songs of our ancestors that we seeing are mostly sad because they had a hard life and
a lot of awards that autumn we were cari to do and don't have time to lie on this so far there are we in the garden that need pulling out or berries that need peeking and aside from that there is always cleaning to be dying to feel pretty but i can either. every day old believers thank god for the sun and their health they firmly believe the places around by color sacred any difficulties can be enjoyed with god's help even the weather. when the theater is a holy mountain nearby on the sentient day elderly women go there and pray to god to send rain and bless the crops. from time to time scientists will admit that even though they don't believe in spirits
they do listen to the local legends. the tradition. helps. in return for respect be generous. with. the scientist from switzerland. paid off the weather has improved allowing the scientists to work . on the banks of. the biggest river flowing into by providing around fifty percent of its river water it's a powerful filter that cleans before it gets into the lake. continue working next to.
has your emotional state. like health through its beauty individuality and energy can reconcile science with man's belief in supernatural powers. scientists might look for answers to any question but it doesn't mean that everything will be explained one day. that's a completely different approach towards goals of science differ from those of folklore. you can't escape these legends like the fisherman who carry out their rituals every time before they leave. god there needs to be placated who should treat him to what a wine or even if you feel like it drink some yourself.
if you go there is one. where i've never seen anything like this before. so many in just one that. are just about fifty or sixty you can tell by the way. local fisherman firmly convinced that bike will give a good catch when people treated with respect. is not only the oldest but it's also the deepest lake in the world with a depth of one thousand six hundred forty two meters. somewhere on the lake bed the treasures of the russian empire. one legend has it that in the times of the civil war in russia at the beginning of the twentieth century the ship carrying the gold
reserves of the russian empire sank somewhere in this area. no one has found these treasures yet but still being made to this day large expeditions are organized cutting edge technology is used and various maps are examined everything possible is being done to find the sunken gold but no one has been lucky so far by cal continues to play hide and seek with. popular one we have decided to have a go at it and during that one submersion we had about twelve accidents that we had never had before first the weather was fine and the forecast was good but once we had reached the spot the weather changed and then it turned out that we had somehow lost the directions we had specially rented out and once we had reached the bottom . to top it off when we were rising from the bottom. that was to be.
best. and was damaged so i understood then that up above we were on the right track to find in this culture but my call was resolved to keep it if you were. josefa isn't too eager to leave but his wife and two young daughters are waiting for him at home so many things are still to be done and so much about by cal still needs to be unraveled. because other people warned me that once i came to lake baikal my life would change completely i would fall in love with it and would long to come back sure. i never thought that this place would really affect me so deeply thought of the heriot i spent here has been one of the most interesting and dynamic stages of my life conceiving the fire and i will certainly look for an opportunity to return to lake baikal from movies to the.
the i'm. just slips above. the. remember remember it's yet again the fifth of november in banks there is an con man still rule it's been four hundred years that rebuilding a stand for a rope a rope was the last never held and for this reason trees those plots still a bell and indeed it was blankfein and diamond who did these schemes called ponzi contrived to blow the global economy sky high with three could join derivatives lay
a mess. was no way over. clearly they were just at the wrong place at the wrong time. and sold to the us or turned over to the us for. the soul that could be buried alive. was saved with great over. they wanted to turn me into a terrorist so it was they wanted me to admit that i was a member of al qaeda. taliban that i fought with i'm. not a bad time i didn't even know what al qaeda is nevertheless there are people all. brave enough to start a fight. something is going to be done that's going to be done by me i have a short amount of time to do it but it's going to impact me i'd be prosecuted but it's going to impact. the wife my daughter. the one time
