Mind control of a distant electronic device: A proof-of-concept pre-registered study
Publication year: 2020
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
This study was aimed at verifying the possibility of mentally influencing from a distance an electronic device based on a True Random Number Generator (TRNG). Thirteen adult participants contributed to 100 trials, each comprised three samples of data each of 15 minutes’ duration: one for pre-mental interaction, one for mental interaction, and one for post-mental interaction. For each of these three samples, at the end of each minute, the data sequence generated by the random number generator was analyzed with the Frequency and Runs tests in order to determine if there were any changes in the randomness of the sequence.
A further 100 trials of three samples each of the same duration were collected during normal functioning of the device, as a control. The only evidence of an effect of distant mental interaction is an increase of approximately 50%, with respect to control data, of the number of samples within which the pre-determined statistical threshold for the detection of a reduction of the randomness was surpassed in both tests. Although the effect of distant mental interaction is still weak, we believe that the results of this study represent a proof-of-concept for the construction of electronic devices susceptible to distant mental influence.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND
This project is based mainly on the hypothesis that the human mind can interact with electronic targets at a distance, that is, not through conventional means and without spatial and temporal constraints.
AIMS
This project aims at demonstrating the feasibility of practical applications for portable devices based on the mind-matter interaction at a distance with random event generators and digital photographic camera sensors.
METHOD
The first protocol, pre-registered at https://osf.io/3g95p, requires mentally influencing true RNGs’ normal functioning in order to achieve a predefined level of non-randomness (reduced entropy) within a predefined time window. The level of reduced randomness was analyzed by applying two tests of NIST statistical test suite (Rukhin et al. 2010) for testing random strings. The software is available open access at: https://github.com/tressoldi/MindSwitch
Participants: thirteen participants contributed to 100 trials.
The second protocol is based on the mental influence on the memory cells forming the image-sensor of a digital photo camera: indeed each single cell forming a pixel of an image sensor requires little energy to change its level of charge, and then of the voltage controlling its output signal. The software is available open access at: https://github.com/mbilucaglia/PsyCam
Three male adults, with previous experience in mind-matter experiments, contributed to 50 trials overall.
RESULTS
The raw data related to the first protocol are available open access at: https://figshare.com/articles/dataset/MindSwitch/8160269
With respect to the confirmatory hypotheses, the only dependent variable that seems influenced by the mental interaction is the detection of reduced randomness by both the Frequency Test and the Runs Test within the same sample of data.
The raw data related to the second protocol, are available at: https://figshare.com/articles/dataset/Thoughtography/12151932 . The Structural Similarity Index (SSIM) of the target images was greater with respect to the control ones in 6 out of 49 trials (12.2%).
CONCLUSIONS
The results of these experiments represent a proof-of-concept of the possibility of both creating electronic devices that can be mentally controlled from a distance and imprinting predetermined images on digital sensors of professional photo cameras affecting their contrast parameters and structural similarity indices, opening the way to a new generation of mind-matter practical applications. An ongoing development of this technology is the use of modern video recorders instead of photo cameras, which allow the possibility to see how images are formed.

https://psyarxiv.com/edpt5/
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The aim of this pilot study was to determine the possibility of mentally producing, from a geographical distance, predefined images on modern digital sensors of professional commercial photographic cameras, and to do it sufficiently well for the images to be recognized by a special software.
Three participants experienced in distant mind-matter interaction techniques took part in a total of 49 trials.
In 6 out of 49 trials (12.2%) the value of the Structural Similarity Index of the target image chosen by the participant for the distant mental influence trial on the camera’s sensor was greater than that obtained when the target was different.
Although still preliminary, these results suggest that it may be possible to use modern professional cameras to study the effects of distant mind-matter interactions.
