In order to effectively demonstrate some good evidences, scientists need to conduct an experiment that has a closely controlled condition. In John Thomas’ facts sheet, he mentions that the evidences cited for ESP are usually anecdotal. He states these anecdotal claimed that scientific tests at respected research institutions have conclusively demonstrated that ESP exists. For example, as pointed out by Thomas, the SRI remote- viewed experiments claimed that subjects could see places through the eyes of others. However, psychologies are unable to repeat the result of this experiment. Methods Participants 2a (I) This research aims to prevent any bias data by controlling the environment of the experiment. The participants will be both male and female of different ages. The
