IONS is looking for volunteers to participate in a scientific study investigating mind-matter interactions. Previous experiments suggest that focusing mental attention toward a laser beam reduced the beam’s intensity. The present experiment explores what happened to the “missing photons” associated with the decline in illumination. One possibility is that focused attention might slightly deflect the beam, causing some photons to scatter from their original trajectory.
The experimental task lasts about 40 minutes. You will be asked to focus your attention toward a laser beam while attempting to block the beam with your mind. Real-time feedback about the laser beam intensity is provided on a computer screen to help you concentrate.
Participation is voluntary. We do not offer financial compensation for participation in this study.
