Capturing PSI: Replicating von Lucadou's Correlation Matrix Experiment using a REG Mikro-PK
Publication year: 2014
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND AND METHOD: Psychokinesis (PK)-Experiments are beset by the problem of replicability. This became clear, when the largest replication of micro-PK failed (Jahn et al. 2000), driving the otherwise significant total PK-database towards a null effect (Bösch, Steinkamp & Boller 2006). In such experiments an operator is asked to change a true random process purely by intention. Von Lucadou has been arguing that PK effects are of a correlational nature, and hence will not be replicable if treated as a causal signal. To overcome this problem, he has advocated an indirect design. Thereby, the target outcome is not the mean-shift of the random-sequence as in classical PK-experiments, but a correlation-matrix. To create such a matrix, the PK-experimental set-up is slightly changed. The display of the random-sequence, in this case a fractal spiral that moves to the left or the right, can only be progressed if any out of three different buttons is pressed. The button press, however, has nothing to do with the direction into which the spiral moves. But the participants in the experiments will of course quickly generate hypotheses as to the meaning of the three different buttons. Apart from that the experiments comes with three, randomly sequenced, instructions to change the spiral's direction towards the left, the right, or keep it stable. Out of all potential psychological and physical variables a matrix of 45x45 cells is created of variables that can be correlated with the mean-shift in deviation from randomness. In previous experiments von Lucadou could show that he could replicate the fact that more significant correlations were produced than expected by chance. While the exact positioning of the correlations within the matrix changed over different experimental replications, the fact that the total number of correlations was always higher than expected by chance remained unaltered. Hence we started a large independent replication.
RESULTS: The experimental database was closed on the 31st of January 2014. We collected 398 runs. Currently the data are being evaluated and the results will be presented.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Two studies were done exploring the effectiveness of two PK imagery strategies derived from a survey of popular writings on how to develop psychic skills. Goal oriented imagery involves visualizing only the final outcome or desired goal; process oriented imagery involves visualizing some sort of process gradually leading up to the desired final outcome.
METHOD
The sample included 62 participants, females (72%) and males (28%). In a first study, 62 subjects were asked to bias the behavior of a visual display controlled by a random number generator (Psyleron v.2011), using each imagery strategy half the time (8 runs of 16 trials for each strategy). In a second study, we investigate (with 62 subjects) the effects of two psychologically distinct techniques of attempting to influence Psyleron´s visual display.
RESULTS
There was significant positive overall evidence for PK (p < .02) and for PK during goal oriented imagery (p < .01). An ANOVA revealed that goal oriented imagery scores were significantly greater than process oriented scores, that prior training was not itself a significant factor, but that imagery strategy and prior training interacted significantly (p < .02).
CONCLUSIONS
The difference between the two groups was also significant (p < .02). Thus the goal oriented imagery strategy appears to be more effective than the process oriented strategy, at least for those with no prior exposure to mental development training.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The small effect sizes typically observed in laboratory studies of parapsychological phenomena can potentially be statistically amplified by gathering large amounts of data online. However, online protocols for data collection have several problems, including data integrity and optional stopping, and these problems compromise the quality of the collected data. To overcome these problems, we proposed to create a well-controlled and authenticated mobile app for smartphone and tablet platforms. We dubbed this effort “PsiQ” – making the analogy with intelligence quotient (IQ) tests. PsiQ was released and is available for free on the iOS platform for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch on June 12, 2017. To date it has been downloaded more than 2000 times from the app store, at this link: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id1196948825. A preliminary analysis reveals that all three games, tests of psychokinesis, conscious precognition, and unconscious precognition, show significant effects related to gender and age. Here we briefly describe each portion of PsiQ, our outreach and dissemination efforts related to the app, some preliminary data obtained from PsiQ, as well as future possibilities for the app.

Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Radin (1990) found unusual effects on a RNG embedded in a computer system. A study by the author (2015) revealed unconscious PK effects on computers and electronics was reduced using relaxation techniques.
AIMS
This study explores whether the mood and emotion of a computer operator can produce errors in a network simulating a real-world working environment.
METHOD
130 participants completed normal computer tasks while a separate network system continuously monitored the network for errors. Experimental and control groups completed the same tasks, but the experimental group was obstructed with inoperative software designed to induce anxiety. Participants were motivated to complete the timed tasks quickly with rewards. Participants self-rated anxiety levels.
Custom network software logged errors and avoided automatic error correction. Participants were not aware of the network and did not interact with it, but those with higher anxiety were expected to produce more errors in the network.
Sessions were also run when no user was present. There were three categories of data: high anxiety sessions, lower anxiety sessions, and no user sessions. Errors were collected from the network for each group.
RESULTS & CONCLUSION
Evidence supported both hypotheses, but low effect size and power indicate additional sessions are necessary to confirm the hypotheses.
Sessions run with participants produced a higher mean number of errors than sessions without participants (p=.0345). Effect size: d=.134; power: .287.
Users who reported higher anxiety produced a higher mean number of errors than those who reported less anxiety (p<.0001). Effect size: d=.02; power: .062.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
Mind-matter interactions have been evaluated in the lab in various ways. Despite growing positive evidence for significant effects of mental intention on physical systems, the mechanism for how intention influences the physical systems is unknown.
AIMS
The aims were to evaluate the interactions between focused mental intention and two properties of light (polarization and scattering) in three exploratory experiments to further our understanding of mind-matter interactions.
METHOD
To detect effects in polarization, a laser beam was passed through horizontal and vertical polarizers. Participants were asked to alternately focus their attention toward and away from the beam between the two polarizers. If attention affected the photons’ plane of polarization, then the illumination intensity of the beam exiting the second polarizer should increase. A third experiment explored whether attention focused toward light would cause it to scatter (or refract, or be absorbed), resulting in a decrease in overall illumination. To test this idea, the intensity of a laser beam passing through a reflective sphere was recorded, along with any light deflected from the beam and ending up inside the sphere.
RESULTS
Two experiments with different apparatus showed significant effects contrary to the expectation that the illumination intensity of the beam exiting the second polarizer should increase. The results of the third experiment were again contrary to expectation and showed that light beam intensity significantly increasing after exiting the sphere.
CONCLUSIONS
The studies reported here are part of a long line of experiments investigating the role of consciousness in the physical world. Photons were used here as the physical targets partially because of continuing interest in light phenomena within psi research, but also because photons are quantum “entities,” and as such these types of experiments may help to inform questions about the nature of observation in quantum theory.

Psychophysical interactions with entangled photons: Five exploratory studies
Publication year: 2021
URL:
https://journals.lub.lu.se/jaex/article/view/23392
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Objective:
Four laboratory studies and an online experiment explored psychophysical (mind-matter) interactions with quantum entangled photons.
Method:
Entanglement correlation strength measured in real-time was presented via a graph or dynamic images displayed on a computer monitor or web browser. Participants were tasked with mentally influencing that metric.
Results:
A statistically significant increase in entanglement strength was obtained in experimental conditions in the four lab studies (p < 0.02), with particularly strong results observed in three studies conducted at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (p < 0.0002). Modest results (p < 0.05) were observed in a high-quality subset of entanglement samples in an online experiment. Control experiments using the same equipment and protocols, but without observers present, showed results consistent with chance expectation in both the lab and online studies.
Conclusion:
These outcomes suggest that the fidelity of entangled states and the nonlocal resource they entail may be mutable in systems that include conscious awareness. This is potentially of interest for quantum information technologies such as quantum computation, encryption, key distribution, and teleportation. The results are also relevant for interpretations of quantum theory, especially if future studies show that entanglement strength can be mentally modulated above the Tsirelson Bound – the upper limit predicted by quantum theory. Such an outcome would suggest that quantum theory in its present form does not hold when physical systems interact with certain mental states. The results of these exploratory experiments justify continued investigation of entangled photons as targets of mind-matter interaction.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We have reported previously on positive effects found in the matrix experiment. This is a setup where a random event generator (REG) drives a display, which participants are instructed to “influence” at will, i.e., in a psychokinesis (PK) setup. The difference of this matrix experiment from standard micro-PK REG experiments was that the deviation from randomness was not measured, but a large array of 2025 correlations between the behavior of the participant and the behavior of the REG was tested. This previous experiment was significant, and we devised a consensus protocol, which was deposited before commencement, according to which we conducted two independent replications with the same experimental setup and equipment. In the first experiment 64 participants conducted the experiment in one location under the experimental guidance of KK, in the second experiment 40 participants conducted the experiment in another location under the experimental guidance of HV. The analysis used a non-parametric randomization test with 10,000 iterations. None of the two experiments was significant. While in the first experiment a very small, but non-significant effect was found, in the second experiment no effect whatsoever was detectable. Sensitivity analyses did not suggest that the effect was in fact there but overlooked by our analysis. We discuss the findings in the context of the larger debate around replicability of parapsychological (PSI) research results and our theoretical model. This starts from the assumptions that such PSI effects are likely effects of a generalized form of entanglement correlations, and a consequence of this model is that such effects must not be used for the transfer of signals. Classical experiments, however, are detectors or extractors of signals in or from systems. This seems to be prohibited. Thus, the replication problem and this failed replication is likely part of the systematic nature of these effects. This makes it unlikely that experimental research alone will be successful in the long run demonstrating PSI effects. Our conclusion is that the matrix experiment is not a replicable paradigm in PSI research.

BIAL Foundation Archive
Start date: 1994
History:
The BIAL Foundation was created in 1994 by Laboratórios BIAL in conjunction with the Council of Rectors of Portuguese Universities. BIAL’s Foundation mission is to foster the scientific study of Man from both the physical and spiritual perspectives.
Along the years the BIAL Foundation has developed an important relationship with the scientific community, first in Portugal and after worldwide. Today it is an institution of reference which aims to stimulate new researches that may help people, promote more health and contribute to new milestones to gain access to knowledge.
Among its activities the BIAL Foundation manages the BIAL Award, created in 1984, one of the most important awards in the Health field in Europe. The BIAL Award rewards both the basic and the clinical research distinguishing works of major impact in medical research.
The BIAL Foundation also assigns Scientific Research Scholarships for the study of neurophysiological and mental health in people, arousing the interest of researchers in the areas of Psychophysiology and Parapsychology.
To date the BIAL Foundation has supported 461 projects, more than 1000 researchers, with research groups in twenty-seven countries, resulting, until April 2013, in about 600 full papers, out of which 172 published in indexed international journals with an average impact factor of 3.6 and a substantial number of citations (1665).
Since 1996 the BIAL Foundation organizes the Symposia entitled "Behind and Beyond the Brain", a Forum that gathers well renowned neurosciences speakers and the BIAL Foundation Fellows which are spread around the world.
Classified as an institution of public utility, the BIAL Foundation includes among its patrons the Portuguese President, the Portuguese Universities Rectors' Council and the Portuguese Medical Association.

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.

Psi performance as a function of demographic and personality factors in smartphone-based tests: Using a “SEARCH” approach.

Abstract/Results: Objective: We set out to gain a better understanding of human psychic or “psi” functioning by using a smartphone-based app to gather data from thousands of participants. Our expectations were that psi performance would often be revealed to be in the direction opposite to the participants’ conscious intentions (“expectation-opposing”; previously called “psi-missing”), and that gender and psi belief would be related to performance. Method:We created and launched three iOS-based tasks, available from 2017 to 2020, related to micro-psychokinesis (the ability to mentally influence a random number generator) and precognition (the ability to predict future randomly selected events). We statistically analyzed data from more than 2,613 unique logins and 995,995 contributed trials using null hypothesis significance testing as well as a pre-registered confirmatory analysis. Results: Our expectations were confirmed, and we discovered additional effects post-hoc. Our key findings were: 1) significant expectation-opposing effects, with a confirmatory pre-registered replication of a clear expectation-opposing effect on a micro-pk task, 2) performance correlated with psi belief on all three tasks, 3) performance on two of the three tasks related to gender, 4) men and women apparently used different strategies to perform micro-pk and precognition tasks. Conclusions: We describe our recommendations for future attempts to better understand performance on forced-choice psi tasks. The mnemonic for this strategy is SEARCH: Small effects, Early and exploratory, Accrue data, Recognize diversity in approach, Characterize rather than impose, and Hone in on big results.
