Influence of intention on reality

According to PEAR experiment human intentions can statistically significantly affect behavior of random processes, moreover:
  • Human minds can affect random physical processes, to a minor but statistically detectable degree.
  • The effect seems to disappear when deterministic (pseudo-random) sources are substituted.
  • The effect is idiosyncratic (different individuals produce different results).
  • The effect is erratic, showing long-term fluctuations which can be partly (but only partly) explained by changes in the operator pool.
  • The scaling in response to simple physical variables is not obvious: for example, speeding up sampling by a factor of 10 produced no detectable difference in the effect size per bit, but speeding up sampling by a factor of 10,000 inverted the sign of the effect and reduced the per-bit effect size by a factor of 30.

<strong>Yeah, Right.</strong>

PEAR has been disbanded, after 27 years of research and no conclusive results.
