Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
Many people have found that they think of someone for no apparent reason, and shortly afterwards receive a telephone call or an email from that person. In tests on telephone telepathy, during my previous Bial Foundation Bursary, I found that people really could anticipate who was about to call them. My Research Associate Pam Smart and I have now completed more than 500 email telepathy tests, following a similar design to the telephone telepathy tests. Each subject has four potential emailers some of whom are familiar and nominated by the subject, while others are unfamiliar. For each test, the emailer is selected at random by the experimenter.
As in the telephone telepathy experiments there is a one in four chance of the subject guessing correctly at random. Hence the mean chance expectation of success is 25%. In an initial series of 552 trials, we tested 50 participants. The hit rate was 43%, very significantly above the mean chance expectation of 25% (p=1x10– 20). The 95% confidence limits of the success rate were from 39% to 47%.
We then tested five participants under more rigorous conditions in which they were filmed continuously. In 150 filmed trials, the hit rate was 47 (p=1x10– 9).
In some of our trials the emailers were more than 10,000 kilometres away from the participants with no sign of any decline owing to distance.
An on-line version of the email telepathy experiment is now available on my website www.sheldrake.org.
I have continued with my research on the sense of being stared at and have written an extensive review of the evidence and also a paper on its theoretical implications, due to appear in a special issue of the Journal of Consciousness Studies in the summer of 2005.

Experimental tests for telephone telepathy
Publication year: 2003
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Many people claim to have known who was calling before they picked up the telephone, or to have thought about someone for no apparent reason, who then called. We carried out a series of experiments to test whether or not people really could tell who was telephoning. Each participant had four potential callers, and when the telephone rang had to guess who was calling before the other person spoke. By chance the success rate would have been 25%. In a total of 571 trials, involving 63 participants, the overall success rate was 40%, with 95% confidence limits from 36 to 45%. This effect was hugely significant statistically (p = 4 x 10-16). We obtained similar positive effects when the calls were made at randomly chosen times, and when the calls were made at fixed times known to the subject in advance. With 37 participants, we compared the success rates with familiar and unfamiliar callers and found a striking difference. With familiar callers, 53% of the guesses were correct (n = 190; p = 1 x 10-16). With unfamiliar callers, only 25% of the guesses were correct, exactly at the chance level. This difference between the responses with familiar and unfamiliar callers was highly significant (p = 3 x 10-7). We also investigated the effects of distance between the callers and participants. With overseas callers at least 1,000 miles away, the success rate was 65% (n = 43; p = 3 x 10-8). With callers in Britain, the success rate was lower (35%). In most cases, the overseas callers were people to whom the participants were closely bonded. For the successful identification of callers, emotional closeness seemed to be more important than physical proximity.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The authors tested whether participants (N = 4) could tell who was calling before answering the telephone. In each trial, participants had 4 potential callers, one of whom was selected at random by the experimenter. Participants were filmed on time-coded videotape throughout the experimental period. When the telephone began ringing, the participants said to the camera whom they thought the caller was and, in many cases, also how confident they felt in their guesses. The callers were usually several miles away, and in some cases thousands of miles away. By guessing at random, there was a 25% chance of success. In a total of 271 trials, there were 122 (45%) correct guesses (p = 10-12). The 95% confidence limits of this success rate were from 39% to 51%. In most trials, some of the callers were familiar to the participants and others were unfamiliar. With familiar callers there was a success rate of 61% (n = 100; p = 10-13). With unfamiliar callers the success rate of 20% was not significantly different from chance. When they said they were confident about their guesses, participants were indeed more successful than when they were not confident.

The need for open-minded scepticism: A reply to David Marks
Publication year: 2003

http://www.skeptic.org.uk/shop/16-4
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Following David Marks' article on the subject of unseen staring and the ESP ability of pets (see The Skeptic 16.3), we now hear Rupert Sheldrake's radical views on these topics. Needless to say, Marks and Sheldrake vehemently disagree. For example, Sheldrake thinks that not only is the claim that people - and animals - can tell when they are being stared at by unseen others true, but that it may have an evolutionary basis, because prey animals that could detect when a predator is looking at them would have a better chance of survival than animals that did not. Do Sheldrake's and Marks' fundamental differences of opinion derive from the different disciplines they trained in? Is it possibly the case that Sheldrake is even more sceptical than the sceptics? Whatever the answers to these questions are, Sheldrake is certainly a stern iconoclast.

A filmed experiment on telephone telepathy with the Nolan sisters
Publication year: 2004
URL:
http://www.academia.edu/5587992/A_FILMED_EXPERIMENT_ON_TELEPHONE_TELEPATHY_WITH_THE_NOLAN_SISTERS
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Apparent telepathy in connection with telephone calls is common. Many people say that they have known who was calling when the phone started ringing, or that they have thought of someone for no apparent reason, and that person called soon afterwards (Sheldrake, 2000, 2003; Brown & Sheldrake, 2001).
Is this just a matter of coincidence? Sheldrake & Smart (2003 a, b) have developed a simple experimental procedure for testing whether people really can tell who is calling, under conditions in which they could not know by any "normal" means. A participant receives a call at a prearranged time from one of four potential callers. He or she knows who these callers are. The experimenter chooses the caller at random by throwing a die, and then tells the caller that he or she has been chosen to call at a given time in the near future.
When the telephone rings the participant has to say who is calling before picking up the receiver. These tests are, of course, carried out using telephones without caller identification systems.
By chance, if telepathy played no part, the success rate would be about 1 in 4, or 25%. In fact in a total of more than 850 trials involving a 65 participants, the average success rate was 42% (p= 1x10-26) (Sheldrake, 2003).
The present experiment was carried out in an attempt to replicate the telephone telepathy phenomenon for a television show called "Are You Telepathic?" made by 20/20 Productions and broadcast in the UK on Channel Five Television on June 19, 2003. The participant and her four callers were sisters, who had for years worked together in a girl band, the Nolan Sisters, popular in the UK in the 1980s.
In most of the previous trials, the callers were in different locations from each other and were not filmed. But in one previous experiment, all four callers were in the same location, and the callers as well as the participant were filmed continuously. In that test, carried out in Wakefield, Yorkshire, the participant was 1.5 km away from the four callers. She guessed correctly in 8 out of 17 trials (47%; p = 0.04) (Sheldrake & Smart, 2003a). The present experiment followed the same design as the Wakefield test.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Telepathy has been investigated scientifically for more than 100 years, but its existence is still controversial. Some people believe telepathy and other forms of "extrasensory perception" (ESP) or psi are impossible in principle (e.g., Humphrey, 1995).. Hence, they suggest that all the evidence for telepathy must be flawed and should be treated with extreme skepticism. Others regard the question as empirical. Maybe telepathy really occurs, even if the means by which it operates is not yet understood. Its existence or nonexistence is not a matter of belief but of evidence (e.g., Henry, 2005). Meanwhile, many people claim that they themselves have had telepathic experiences, and several surveys have shown that a majority of the population thinks telepathy exists (Gallup & Newport, 1991; Blackmore, 1997; Sheldrake, 2003). Skeptics usually dismiss all personal experience as unreliable. Only experimental evidence counts.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Most people have had the experience of turning round feeling that someone is looking at them from behind, and finding that this is the case. Most people have also had the converse experience. They can sometimes make people turn around by staring at them. In surveys in Europe and North America, between 70% and 97% of the people questioned said they had had personal experiences of these kinds (Braud et al., 1990; Sheldrake, 1994; Cottrell et al., 1996).

The sense of being stared at, Part 2: Its implications for theories of vision

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
For the purpose of this discussion, I am taking it for granted that the sense of
being stared at is real. The weight of available evidence seems to support its factual
existence, as discussed in my earlier article in this issue of the Journal of
Consciousness Studies. Some people will dispute this conclusion, and there is as
yet no universal consensus. But it is not necessary for everyone to agree that a
phenomenon exists before discussing its possible implications. A discussion of
the implications of evolution began long before everyone agreed that evolution
had occurred, and there are still people who deny its reality.
The sense of being stared at implies that looking at a person or animal can affect
that person or animal at a distance. An influence seems to pass from the observer to
the observed. The sense of being stared at does not seem to fit in with theories that
locate all perceptual activity inside the head. It seems more compatible with theories
of vision that involve both inward and outward movements of influence.
In order to see the present situation in perspective, it is helpful to look at the
history of the long-standing debate about the nature of vision. Inward or intromission
theories have always tended to regard vision as passive, emphasizing the
entry of light into the eye. Outward or extramission theories have always emphasized
that vision is active. Combined theories accept that vision has both active
and passive aspects.
I start with a brief overview of the history of theories of vision. I then discuss
how this debate is continuing today, and examine how the different theories
might relate to the sense of being stared at. I summarize my own hypothesis that
the sense of being stared at depends on perceptual fields that link the perceiver to
that which is perceived. These fields are rooted in the brain, but extend far
beyond it. I conclude by examining aspects of quantum theory that imply twoway
interconnections between observers and observed.

Abstract/Results: Most of us know it well - the almost physical sensation that we are the object of someone’s attention. Is the feeling all in our head? And what about related phenomena, such as telepathy and premonitions? Are they merely subjective beliefs? In The Sense of Being Stared At, renowned biologist Rupert Sheldrake explores the intricacies of the mind and discovers that our perceptive abilities are stronger than many of us could have imagined. Despite a traditional academic background, Sheldrake has devoted his notable career as a scientist and writer to challenging the boundaries of 'acceptable' science. A firm believer in the power of an experiment to yield answers about nature, he has dedicated years of intense research to investigating our common beliefs about what he calls our 'seventh sense.' After compiling a database of 4,000 case histories, 2,000 questionnaires, 1,500 telephone interviews, and the results of a decade of scientifically controlled experiments, Sheldrake argues persuasively in this compelling, innovative book that such phenomena are real. In fact, he rejects the label of 'paranormal' and shows how these psychic occurrences are a normal part of human nature. As an explanation for this more intimate connection with the external world, Sheldrake suggests that our minds are not limited to our brains, but rather stretch outward to touch the beings and objects that we perceive. Once this extended influence of the mind is taken into consideration, many puzzling phenomena begin to make sense, including telepathy and phantom limbs. Sheldrake shows that telepathy depends on social bonds. He traces its evolution from the connections between members of animal groups such as flocks, schools, and packs. In the modern world, telepathy occurs most commonly just before telephone calls. Sheldrake summarizes startling new experimental evidence for the reality of telephone telepathy, and shows how readers can do tests for themselves. Combining the tradition of pragmatic experimentation with a refusal to allow science to fall into dogmatism, Sheldrake pioneers an intriguing new inquiry into the mysteries of our deepest nature. Rigorously researched, yet completely accessible, this groundbreaking book provides a refreshing new way of thinking about ourselves and our relationships with other people, with animals, and with the world around us.

The sense of being stared at: Do hit rates improve as tests go on?
Publication year: 2008
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Simple experiments on the sense of being stared at have given repeatable, positive results that are highly significant statistically. In these experiments, people work in pairs. The staree sits with his or her back to the starer, who either looks at the back of the staree’s neck, or looks away, in a random sequence. In each trial, the staree has to guess whether or not the starer is looking. However, when Marks & Colwell (2001) and Lobach & Bierman (2004) conducted tests of this kind, some of their experiments gave results not significantly different from chance, and they attempted to explain the positive results in staring tests as artifacts. Their hypotheses predict that positive scores should arise only in trials with feedback, only in trials with one particular kind of randomization, and that scores should increase towards the end of the experimental session. I have examined the data from the first and second halves of more than 19,000 trials to test these predictions. Both with and without feedback, and also with different randomization methods, the scores were positive and statistically significant in both the first and the second halves of tests. With feedback there was a small increase in scores in the second halves, but this was not statistically significant. Without feedback, there was a tendency for the scores to decline. In a trial-by-trial analysis of one large-scale experiment, the highest hit rate occurred in the very first trial for starees who were about to receive feedback, before any feedback had actually been given! Thus the beneficial effect of feedback may not depend so much on the feedback itself as the state of mind of the participants.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
In previous research on the sense of being stared at participants worked in pairs, with the starer behind the staree. In a series of 20 randomized trials, the starer looked or did not look at the staree, who had to guess “looking” or “not looking”. We here describe an automated, internet-based version of this standard staring experiment. In 498 tests, each with 20 trials, the computer gave an automatic sound signal to indicate when each trial began. The average hit rate was 53.0% (p <1x10-6); 268 participants scored above the chance level of 10 out of 20, 150 below, and 80 at the chance level. There was no significant difference between male and female starees, and little effect of starees’ age. The highest hit rates were with parent-child participants. Hit rates were significantly higher when starees received trial-by-trial feedback, but there was no increase in the second half of the test compared with the first. Although these tests were unsupervised, the results replicated many of the features of previous tests and illustrate the potential for carrying out research through the internet, enabling widespread participation.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The sense of being stared at, or scopesthesia, was investigated experimentally with participants working in pairs. Two participants were tested repeatedly and the effect of attentional transition was investigated. In some tests, in the pre-trial period the starer stared at the staree, who was blindfolded, and in others the starer did not stare during the pre-trial period. Their overall hit rate in these attentional transition tests was 52.8% (2,800 trials; p=0.002), but there was no significant difference in hit rates between the two kinds of test. Participants were given trial-by-trial feedback, so if there was any learning, there should have been a progressive increase in hit rates. This did not happen. The participants also took part in a control tests in which there was no staring at all. In these tests hit rates were at chance levels, indicating that other forms of ESP, such as telepathy and clairvoyance, could not account for the results in scopesthesia tests. There were only 3 recording errors in 2,800 trials (0.1%), and two of these cancelled out, leaving a net error rate of 0.04%.
