A consortium of research groups at Freiburg, Giessen, and Princeton was formed in 1996 to pursue multidiciplinary studies of mind/machine interaction anomalies. The first collaborative project undertaken was an attempted replication of prior Princeton experiments that had demonstrated anomalous deviations of the outputs of electronic random event generators in correlation with prestated intentions of human operators. For this replication, each of the 3 participating laboratories collected data from 250 x 3,000-trial x 200 binary-sample experimental sessions, generated by 227 human operators. Identical noise-source equipment was used throughout, and essentially similar protocols and data analysis procedures were followed. Data were binned in terms of operator intention to increase the mean of the 200-binary-sample distributions (HI), to decrease the mean (LO), or not to attempt any influence. Contiguous unattended calibrations were carried forward throughout. …
