Science Of The Lost Symbol



Because any effect on a RNG is occurring at the microscopic level, where natural variations in output can occur, this kind of test has challenges in terms of ruling out influences other than the human mind. However, one way to determine reliability is to perform what is called a meta-analysis. This is a well-accepted type of statistical analysis that looks at all the studies that have been reported, factors in those that might have been done but not reported or published, and determines what the odds are that that the combined effects of the successful reported studies might have happened by chance. This is an effective way to reveal a small, but otherwise imperceptible effect, one that would not show up in a few studies but that emerges from the combined evidence from large numbers of studies over time.

In 1987, Dean Radin, now senior scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), teamed with then Princeton psychologist Roger Nelson to undertake just such a meta-analysis of RNG influence studies. They analyzed the results of 832 RNG-influence studies (597 influence experiments and 235 control studies) carried out by 68 different researchers. As reported by Radin in his book The Conscious Universe, the conclusion of the meta-analysis was that “the overall experimental results produced odds against chance beyond a trillion to one” (140). That means that there was only one chance in a trillion that the combined effects recorded in these studies could be attributed to something other than the influence of human intention on the RNGs.
