Abstract

With this pilot exploratory study we aimed at investigating if focused mental intention by selected participants could increase in the level of photons detected by a photomultiplier located in a very distant location with respect to the control conditions.

Five participants selected for their long experience with hypnosis and mental control practices and their strong motivation toward this line of research, tried to increase the rate of photons detected by a photomultiplier located approximately 7330 km far from their location, both when in an Out of Body state of consciousness induced by an hypnotic suggestion and when in a normal state of consciousness.

The comparison of ten experimental sessions with two types of ten control sessions revealed an average increase of approximately 20 photons per minute during the experimental sessions.
These preliminary results suggest that the physical carrier of the mental interaction at distance can be the biophotons.
