Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The hypothesis to detect a sequence of events by analyzing the EEG activity of two human partners spatially separated and connected only mentally, was explored sending to a member of the couple a sequence of silence-signal events and analyzing the EEG activity of the second member of the couple. By using a special classification algorithm and five couples of participants characterized by a long friendship and a capacity in maintaining a focused mental concentration, we observed an overall percentage of correct coincidences of 78%, ranging from one-hundred percent for the first two segments, to approximately forty-three percent of the last two. The percentages of coincidences of the first five segments of the protocol were above eighty percent.
Furthermore a robust statistically significant correlation was observed in the alpha band in twelve out fifteen pairs of recordings.
The observed results seem supporting the possibility to connect two brains at distance excluding conventional means, paving the way to devise a sort of mental telecommunication at distance.

Publication year: 2014

http://f1000research.com/articles/3-182/v3#reflist
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This study reports the results of a confirmatory experiment testing the hypothesis that it is possible to detect coincidences of a sequence of events (silence-signal) of different length, by analyzing the EEG activity of two human partners spatially separated when one member of the pair receives the stimulation and the second one is connected only mentally with the first.
Seven selected participants with a long friendship and a capacity to maintain focused mental concentration, were divided into two groups located in two different laboratories approximately 190 km apart. Each participant acted both as a “stimulated” and as a “mentally connected” member of the pair for a total of twenty sessions overall.
The offline analysis of EEG activity using a special classification algorithm based on a support vector machine, detected the coincidences in the sequence of events of the stimulation protocol between the EEG activity of the “stimulated” and the “mentally connected” pairs.
Furthermore the correlation of the power spectra of the five EEG frequency bands between each of the twenty pairs of data was analyzed using a bootstrap procedure.
The overall percentage of coincidences out of 88 events was 78.4% and the statistically significant average correlations between the EEG alpha and gamma bands among the pairs of participants, confirmed the results observed in a pilot study. The examination of potential internal, external and statistical artifacts which might have caused these results, ruled out external and internal artifacts. However, the examination of potential statistical artifacts revealed a good level of coincidences in only four pairs using a new procedure to detect the sequences of silence and signal between the EEG activity of the pairs of participants, giving a mild support to the hypothesis that two brains and hence two minds can be connected at distance.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The matrix experiment, presented at the SSE Yale meeting in 2017, is a further development of the standard micro-psychokinesis experiment developed and conducted successfully three times by Walter von Lucadou. We have previously conducted a large replication that was positive and have convened a consensus expert meeting to develop a joint protocol. Now we and others have conducted experiments following this protocol. The difference of this experiment from other psychokinesis (PK) experiments consists in the fact that it does not test directly a deviation from randomness, but only indirectly. This is due to the belief derived from our generalized quantum theory that such PK and other anomalistic effects are not causal and not mediated by signals of any kinds or fields, but that they are non-local correlations set up by systemic variables. Hence attempts to “prove” that there are anomalistic signals are deemd to failure long term, at least in strict replications. We have approached this problem by setting up a large correlation matrix of 45 physical variables that are paired with 45 psychological variables, measured during the experiment. We test the number of significant correlations in this matrix against chance and against a control matrix. While
three experiments by Ana Borges in Edinburgh have been positive, our own replication has been negative. We will present the experiment and its result and discuss both the theoretical consequences and potential alternative statistical evaluation strategies for the future. One criticism that can be raised against this experiment is that the statistical procedure, which follows the logic of a randomization test, destroys the correlations, and hence a different strategy should be sought. A possible solution might be found in a kind of adaptation test that tests the joint distribution of correlations in both the experimental and control matrix against a theoretical expectation, thereby circumventing the potential transfer of information that is prohibited by the No-Transfer-of-Information Theorem of our model.

Title: BIAL Grants
Start date: 1994
History:
In 1994 the BIAL Foundation launched a programme of science research grants with the aim of encouraging the research into Man’s physical and mental processes, namely in fields still largely unexplored but which warrant further scientific analysis, as Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
Since its launch, applications to the BIAL grants have been increasing. Up to now 461 projects have been supported, involving more than 1000 researchers from 27 countries.
The approved applications have benefited from grants in amounts comprised between €5,000 and €50, 000. The amount to be granted is fixed by the Scientific board according to the needs of each project.
The supported projects have originated, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, 172 out of which were published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Among the BIAL Foundation fellows is worth highlighting the presence of scientists from prestigious universities from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Russia, Germany, Japan, France, Canada, and many others.
The BIAL grants are promoted biannually.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT
BACKGROUND
The Matrix Experiment, originally developed by Walter von Lucadou, is a special set-up for a micro-PK experiment in which participants do not target the random output as such. Rather a large matrix of psychological and physical variables associated with the experiment is constructed and the number of significant correlations in this matrix is tested against chance and a control matrix. Previous experiments were positive.
AIM
To develop a consensus protocol for this experiment and pilot test it in order to allow for a wider application in the scientific community.
METHOD
We conducted a Delphi-study and convened an expert group to discuss the protocol. The final protocol was used for a first pilot.
RESULTS
We convened 26 experts and found a consensus on a final protocol. The protocol was made public at Open Science Framework at https://osf.io/cx2tf/. One first pilot experiment was conducted. This experiment could not replicate our earlier findings.
CONCLUSIONS
There is a consensus protocol available that can be used by researchers. The first attempt using this protocol was negative. Thus it seems the Matrix experiment is not as such a simple, fool-proof method but is also subject to a decline effect. Additional analysis and discussions show that the effect seems to be preserved within the experiment, but seems to shift between the experimental and control matrix. It is likely that a new and more sensitive method to document it will be necessary. The agreed-upon method of a Monte-Carlo analysis destroys correlations and thus might be overly conservative.

Mind-matter entanglement correlations: Blind analysis of a new correlation matrix experiment

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The work reported here is a rigorous conceptual replication of the so-called “Correlation-Matrix” experiment by an independent author. The experiment has been built from scratch with new hardware and software, testing 200 participants that have spent about half an hour each trying to ‘influence’ a physical random process visualized for feedback. The analysis software has been conceptualized following a strict blind analysis protocol. Blind analysis is a more rigid form of preregistered analysis, in which the complete analysis software is written and tested before the data is actually analysed for the effect under study. The unblinding of the analysis, also called ‘opening of the box’ of the experiment described here has been performed live at the PA convention 2019 in Paris.
The main result was found to be not statistically significant and fell well within the expected random distribution of possible results. A second experiment, also following a blind analysis protocol, included questionnaires that were correlated with the participants’ performance to ‘influence’ the physical random process (the main psi task). This yielded a probability of p=0.06 to have occurred by chance, under a null hypothesis. A post-hoc analysis of the hit rate for the psi task across all participants, which is mathematically independent from the correlation analysis, yielded a probability of p=0.06 as well, to have occurred by chance. Three unexpected anecdotal incidences that occurred during the execution of the experiment and the testing and actual analysis of the data may add to the canon of oddities and trickster-like effects sometimes reported in parapsychology research.
