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 of three samples of data each of 15 minutes’ duration: one for mental pre-interaction, one for mental interaction, and one for mental post-interaction.
For each of these samples, at the end of each minute, the data sequence generated by the random number generator was analysed with two specific tests called “Frequency” and “Runs”, in order to determine the degree of randomness of the sequence.
The only evidence of an effect of distant mental interaction is an average increase of approximately 50%, with respect to control data, of the number of samples within which the pre-determined statistical threshold was exceeded 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.
