Can Our Minds Emit Light at 7300 km Distance? A Pre-Registered Confirmatory Experiment of Mental Entanglement with a Photomultiplier

Patrizio Tressoldi, Luciano Pederzoli, Marzio Matteoli, Elena Prati, John G. Kruth


With this pre-registered confirmatory study, we aimed at replicating the findings observed in two previous experiments where the focused mental entanglement (ME) with a photomultiplier located approximately 7300 km far from the location of a small group of selected participants, showed an increase in the number of photons with respect to the control periods. In particular, we aimed at replicating the increase of approximately 5% of photons detected in the ME periods with respect to the control periods in the bursts of photons exceeding six standard deviations from their mean. The results observed in this study confirmed this increase replicating what observed in the two previous experiments. We discuss the characteristics of these photons which energy is estimated in approximately 65 eV at 788 THz and how ME can generate them at distance.
