Each RNG is referred to as an Egg, and there...
Basic micro-Psychokinesis research in 5 easy steps
Okay, here goes. 1. Connect Random Number Generator to computer. (The RNG is going to be sampled to create a datastream of ones and zeros) 2. Ask participant to ‘mentally influence’ RNG for some length of time. e.g. a trial length of 5 mins. “Generate more ones than zeros, please.” Or vice versa. 3.
