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:
For more than a quarter century, the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory has engaged in a broad range of experiments on consciousness-related physical anomalies and has proposed a corresponding selection of theoretical models that have combined to illuminate the fundamental nature of the provocative phenomena that emerge. Productive pursuit of this topic has inescapably involved a spectrum of political, cultural, personal, and interpersonal factors that are normally not encountered in more conventional scientific scholarship, but have both enriched and complicated the enterprise in many ways. Some of the insights gleaned from the work are objectively specifiable, such as the scale and structural character of the anomalous effects; their relative insensitivity to objective physical correlates, including distance and time; the oscillating sequential patterns of performance they display; the major discrepancies between male and female achievements; and their irregular replicability at all levels of experience. But many others relate to subjective issues, such as the responsiveness of the effects to conscious and unconscious intention and to individual and collective resonance; the relevance of ambience and attitude in their generation; and the importance of intrinsic uncertainty as a source of the anomalies. This blend of empirical features predicates radical excursions of the dedicated models, and hence of the more general scientific paradigms, to allow consciousness and its subjective information processing capacities a proactive role in the establishment of objective reality, with all of the complications of specificity, causality, and reproducibility that entails. The attendant complexities of conceptualization, formulation, and implementation notwithstanding, pragmatic applications of these phenomena in many sectors of public endeavor now can be foreseen.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The possibility of a proactive role for consciousness in the establishment of physical reality has been addressed via an extensive 26-year program investigating physical anomalies in human/machine interactions and non-sensory acquisition of information about remote geographical locations. Empirical databases comprising many hundreds of millions of random events confirm that information can be introduced into, or extracted from, otherwise random physical processes solely through the agencies of human intention and subjective resonance. Much of the evidence mitigates the likelihood that the anomalies are manifestations of neo-cortical cognitive activity. Rather, they may be expressions of a deeper information organizing capacity of biological origin that emerges from the uncertainty inherent in the complexity of all living systems.

Response of an REG-Driven robot to operator intention
Publication year: 2007
URL:
http://www.scientificexploration.org/journal/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
A small articulating robot driven by an on-board miniaturized random event generator (REG) executes two-dimensional stochastic motion on a circular platform. Human operators attempt, under pre-recorded intentions, to influence the device to reach particular exit positions around the table edge, or to remain in motion on the table for longer, or shorter, time periods, or to cover longer, or shorter, overall distances than characterize a large body of unattended calibration data. An overhead camera system tracks the robot trajectories and transmits them to database storage for subsequent analysis. Each of several protocols yields overall results that clearly separate in the directions of operator intention, with effect sizes comparable to those found in many other REGbased experiments. Although the databases are not sufficiently large to drive all of these to statistical significance by the usual p < .05 criterion, certain operator subsets, most notably the females, the groups, and a few individuals, display more noteworthy performances. The consistency of this structural pattern of results with those obtained previously using substantially different
equipment and protocols reinforces a generic character of such phenomena that eventually may lead to a useful comprehensive model for their representation and possible pragmatic applications.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Certain REG studies suggest that the simultaneous focus of many individuals on an emotionally charged event can provoke anomalous effects in Random Event Generators, even though the individuals are unaware of the REG. This would seem to point to a collective, unintentional form of psychokinesis (PK), affecting objects in an indiscriminate, fieldlike manner.
The cited studies, however, are open to alternative explanations. The current study sought to assess fieldlike PK by more closely tying ostensible PK effects to the mental state of a group of individuals. It was hypothesized that the outputs of a REG, hidden in a movie theatre, would reflect the emotional “ups and downs” induced by the film upon spectators. This “onsite” REG was sampled continuously during showtimes, over the course of many film séances while an “off-site” REG collected control data. Control data were also collected from both REGs during “offshow” hours. Data were collected for 5 films, with 15 - 25 seances per film.
It was predicted that significant results would be obtained for the Onsite / Showtime condition, in the form of:
1.a correlation between REG data sets collected across seances of a given film
2. a mean- or variance- shift in REG data, specifically for film sequences judged to be “intense”
Results: Only 3 of the film datasets could be used. Neither of the two predictions were confirmed. A secondary analysis, exploring REG outputs as a function of the number of spectators per film séance, also yielded nonsignificant results.
The null outcomes of this study suggest that
1. unintentional, fieldlike PK does not exist, or,
2. the conditions needed to induce fieldlike effects were not present, or
3. the study’s statistical power was insufficient to detect trends in the data.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
We constructed a true physical random event generator, the so-called T.REG, that uses triggers from various sources to elicit binary events sampled from electronic noise. The advantage of free triggers features most prominently in the idea of creating operational closure between the sampler and the triggering agent in an explicit trigger-feedback-loop. Three modes of triggers and arrangements are investigated: a fixed frequency clock, and two types of modulated voltage controlled oscillators (VCO), one internally driven by the output sequence, the other modulated by subject's one-channel EEG pattern. With sampling three random sources in parallel channels, the integrative capacity of the apparatus is explored.
Data has been collected from 20 human participants in all three triggering modes, trying to deviate the outcome of the REG under four experimental conditions. The subjects received acoustic feedback of their rate of success. In trials of 1501 records, events and transitions are counted in blocks of 200 bits and analyzed under the null hypothesis of randomness. Descriptive statistics are extracted as Z-values with respect to the theoretical mean and variance.
A significant shift in the mean value of the hit score could not be found. The variance measure, however, was increased to Z=2.587 across all subjects in EEG-triggered trials with M-Switch, a device to deliberately invert the meaning of hits and misses. Surprisingly, it has been found that the significantly increased variance was generated by male subjects only (Z=2.937), and in those periods when the M-Switch was not actively used (unpressed) (Z=2.899), indicating a possible psychological factor. It is conjectured that subjects react to the past sequence of events.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
We are reporting on a recently begun exploratory study that involves a new REG device with methodological improvements in the timing of events. In this respect the device differs significantly from any commercially available generator. It was built from the bottom up using latest PLD electronics and is currently going through an intense testing phase. When the proof of concept has been firmly established a series of experiments is planned, involving human subjects whose psi performance will be measured under a given task. A newly developed methodology called the 'horse race paradigm' is tested. In particular we hope to be able to distinguish the predictive power of various theoretical models that have been proposed in the past to explain anomalous deviations from the expected normal statistics. If the device proves useful in the context of micro- PK research, it may point into an entirely new direction for psi and its possible applications. Furthermore the paradigm of coincidence may shed some light on the nature of information when meaningful action is observed.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Experiments with Random Event Generators (REGs) have a long history in the study of paranormal or anomalous behaviour. Nowadays with the help of modern electronics the design of such experiments can be much refined. In a current research project we are investigating non-deterministic time environmental triggers for the generation of random events, similar to tossing coins on a movable table, resulting in a binary data stream. Careful design allows the participants in the experiment to enter into resonance with the bit generating process. Coincidences between trigger and random signals will then show in an excess of 0's or 1's in the sequence. We explore the conditions for which such deviation can actually occur, including triggers from EEG and the output sequence itself. The key point is to avoid any sort of fixed frequency processing, but to provide as much a chance for coincidence as possible. In doing so, the device is "psi-enabled", whether it functions as detector for psi or not, in the sense that a participant can form a system with it, as proposed by von Foerster (1973), an organization characterized by operational closure that can change its own mode of operation.
In an extension of the above principle we constructed an array of RNGs on which several experiments with different parameters and timing can be run in parallel. This is for testing different hypotheses on the same source data and to directly compare the results. For example we run the conventional fixed frequency generator against its non-deterministic time cousin. The proposed hardware basis may shed new light on theoretical approaches to psi phenomena like DAT, MPI and OTs, as we would like to discuss them in the context of second order cybernetics.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Previous ganzfeld research that has considered the role of the sender has been inconsistent in its findings and may be criticised for not taking sufficient account of the sender--receiver relationship. This study used a novel method for assessing any sender influence. A random event generator (REG) placed in the vicinity of the receiver acted as a proxy receiver during the sending period, "selecting" descriptive statements from among a pool of 768. Twenty statements were selected to produce an "REG mentation" that was compared with the performance of the "live" receiver. Forty ganzfeld trials were conducted with novice sender--receiver pairs using a standard protocol apart from the introduction of the REG. Receivers registered a 35% hit rate. The REG mentation was used by an independent judge to rank order the clips in each target set and gave rise to a suggestive hit rate of 32.5%. None of a battery of individual differences measures significantly predicted receiver performance but there was a sign ificant relationship between sender synaesthesia rating and REG performance. The effect size for the REG trials compares favourably with that for other micro PK protocols, and further research is encouraged.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
This study builds upon previous research with hardware Random-Event-Generators (REGs), which suggests that the simultaneous focus of many individuals upon an emotionally charged event can provoke anomalous statistical fluctuations in the REGs. If validated, such results may point to a collective, tacit form of PK that affects objects in an indiscriminate, field-like manner, independently of anyone’s intentions vis-à-vis those objects. Alternatively, however, the data may simply point to psi-mediated experimenter effects which are, by definition, goal-oriented.
OBJECTIVE:
The CinEgg study sought to assess the hypothesis of fieldlike PK, by running concealed field-REGs in movie theatres, and determining whether REG outputs fluctuate in relation to the film’s “intensity”, i.e. in relation to its impact upon movie-goers.
METHOD:
The basic protocol involved two steps: Film evaluation: a judge watched the target film and, using a time-coding program, parsed the film into intense vs. neutral periods.
Data sampling: the field-REG was placed in the movie theatre for several weeks, and, unknown to spectators, was sampled over the course of many film seances. Control data were collected from the field-REG when the movie theatre was closed, and from a second, off-site REG.
Hypotheses: To explore whether REGs “react” to the emotional or attentional fluctuations of spectators watching a film, two predictions were made, :
1. REG datasets corresponding specifically to intense film sequences would show significant departures from randomness in terms of mean and variance.
2. REG datasets, synchronized across multiple sessions of a given film, would be correlated.
RESULTS:
Usable data were collected for three films, with 15-25 sessions per film. No significant shifts were observed in REG means and variance for either experimental or control conditions, and no significant correlations were obtained between field REG outputs when comparing across synchronized film sessions.
CONCLUSION:
Among other possibilities, these null results may suggest that:
a. fieldlike PK does not exist
b. given the effect size associated with field-REG research, the study may have lacked adequate statistical power to detect patterns in the data
c. the emotional intensity of an experience triggered by a film is not comparable to what happens in “real life”, and thus cannot induce detectable field-REG effects.

Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Investigations of methods for generating true-random numbers from the internal hardware of a smartphone device resulted in a successful technique to convert processes within an Apple iPhone's accelerometer into random binary numbers which passed statistical tests of randomness. An intuitive graphical interface was developed for the iPhone to generate, utilize, and transmit data. Server-side algorithms were implemented to collect, store, and analyze transmitted data. Aggregated results of a “real-world” deployment of the iPhone application produced a body of calibration data comprising 30-bit trials with a terminal z-score of -0.17. Upward-intention data yielded a terminal z-score of 0.64, while downward-intention data yielded a terminal z-score of -1.09, both in the desired direction of effort. Given the limited size of these exploratory experiments, these results were not statistically significant, but the effect sizes were of a scale consistent with those of many successful mind-matter interaction studies.
The effort has established both the viability and the core technology behind what could be a new generation of research techniques into consciousness-correlated physical phenomena. The wide availability of smartphones offers new possibilities in mobile computing that can extend this research to a much larger community of users, while eliminating many of the costs and complexities associated with strictly hardware-based and localized methods of the same.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
This project involved the development of a “smartphone” application package and back-end data collection network resulting in a low-cost random event generator (REG) system for the mobile phone. The application would provide data for a preliminary investigation into mindmatter effects using existing mobile devices, while providing individuals with personal experiences and insight into the role of consciousness in the physical world.
METHODS & RESULTS:
An investigation of a method to generate true-random numbers from the internal hardware of a smartphone device resulted in a successful technique to convert processes within an Apple iPhone's accelerometer into random binary numbers which passed statistical tests of randomness. An intuitive graphical interface was developed for the iPhone to generate, utilize, and transmit data. Server-side algorithms were implemented to collect, database, and analyze transmitted data.
CONCLUSIONS & DISCUSSION:
The effort has established both the viability and the core technology behind what could be a new generation of research techniques into consciousness-correlated physical phenomena. The establishment of a large-volume distributed REG network would have the potential to reveal correlations among individual, regional, and global consciousness effects. The wide availability of smartphones offers new possibilities in mobile computing that can extend this research to a much larger community of users, while eliminating many of the costs and complexities associated with strictly hardware-based methods of the same.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
For more than a quarter century, the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory has engaged in a broad range of experiments on consciousness-related physical anomalies and has proposed a corresponding selection of theoretical models that have combined to illuminate the fundamental nature of the provocative phenomena that emerge. Productive pursuit of this topic has inescapably involved a spectrum of political, cultural, personal, and interpersonal factors that are normally not encountered in more conventional scientific scholarship, but have both enriched and complicated the enterprise in many ways. Some of the insights gleaned from the work are objectively specifiable, such as the scale and structural character of the anomalous effects; their relative insensitivity to objective physical correlates, including distance and time; the oscillating sequential patterns of performance they display; the major discrepancies between male and female achievements; and their irregular replicability at all levels of experience. But many others relate to subjective issues, such as the responsiveness of the effects to conscious and unconscious intention and to individual and collective resonance; the relevance of ambience and attitude in their generation; and the importance of intrinsic uncertainty as a source of the anomalies. This blend of empirical features predicates radical excursions of the dedicated models, and hence of the more general scientific paradigms, to allow consciousness and its subjective information processing capacities a proactive role in the establishment of objective reality, with all of the complications of specificity, causality, and reproducibility that entails. The attendant complexities of conceptualization, formulation, and implementation notwithstanding, pragmatic applications of these phenomena in many sectors of public endeavor now can be foreseen.

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.
