In preliminary research designed to test the "remote viewing" paradigm of Puthoff and Targ, two university art classes drew their impressions of an unknown, randomly determined location. Based on the drawings, independent judges attempted to select the correct locations from among ten slides. The results (P = 0.03), although not conclusive, were encouraging.
