Several million experimental trials investigating the ability of human operators to affect the output of various random physical devices have demonstrated small but statistically significant shifts of the distribution means that correlate with operator intention, exhibit repeatable idiosyncratic individual variations, and display consistent patterns of gender dependence, series position development, and internal distribution structure. These effects also appear to be statistically independent…

Science of the Subjective 11
Over the greater portion of its long scholarly history, the particular form of human observation, reasoning, and technical deployment we properly term “science” has relied at least as much on
Science of the subjective.
Is the Psychokinetic Effect as Found with Binary Random Number Generators Suitable to Account for Mind-Brain Interaction?
TLDR
A quantitative comparison indicates that the PK effect might be of the right size to generate in a neuron an additional voltage on the order of the statistical noise, and could decide whether the neuron reaches the threshold of the action potential.

TGD Inspired Theory of Consciousness
The basic ideas and implications of TGD inspired theory of consciousness are briefly summarized. The notions of quantum jump and self can be unified in the recent formulation of TGD relying on dark
TGD Inspired View About Remote Mental Interactions and Consciousness-Related Anomalies, Part II
I have proposed a general vision about how remote mental interactions and related phenomena could be understood in TGD Universe around 2003. The progress that has taken place since then in TGD
Precognitive Remote Perception: Replication of Remote Viewing
TLDR
Although the PEAR program has accumulated several hundred experimental trials, its primary goal has been to develop a sophisticated analytical judging methodology to replace the human judging process, and thereby to facilitate more precise quantitative assessment of results and their correlation with various experimental parameters.
Promoting a sense of connectedness among individuals by scientifically demonstrating the existence of a planetary consciousness?
  • S. Andrews
  • Psychology
    Alternative therapies in health and medicine
  • 1996
TLDR
Through these studies, more has been learned about the effect of connectedness, ways of facilitating a sense of connection, and how to approach some objective understanding of its physical basis and human value.
TGD Inspired View About Remote Mental Interactions and Paranormal
I have proposed a general vision about what remote mental interactions and related phenomena could be in TGD Universe around 2003. A lot of progress that has taken place since then, and this
TGD BASED VIEW ABOUT LIVING MATTER AND REMOTE MENTAL INTERACTIONS
TLDR
The book is intended to be a concise summary about the applications of TGD in consciousness theory, living matter, and remote mental interactions, and the notion of many-sheeted space-time and topological field quantization are of special importance for understanding biology in TGD Universe.

The Role of Consciousness in Physical Reality
TLDR
To the extent that a consciousness metric can be identified, the model is found useful in interpretation of the man/machine anomalies, and could be extended to other anomalous and normal interactions as well.
