Psyleron's research findings all share one common theme - that there is more to our physical reality than we experience or are aware of in our daily lives. Our experiments, and the experiments at PEAR that led to the founding of the company all suggest that people are not merely passive observers of the physical world. Instead, it would seem that our thoghts, intentions, and ways of relating to things can actually shape physical outcomes in a measurable way.

The PEAR Lab is famous for using a "Random Event Generator" to study mind-influence phenomena. To understand what a REG is, imagine an electronic coin flipper. Both produce a stream of random binary outcomes. But instead of "heads" and "tails," the REG produces "1s" or "0s." These are the symbols that computers use. Each "1" or "0" is actually a quantum event happening inside the REG. The laws of physics say that you can't predict these quantum events, so we know the REG generates fundamentally random data. When the REG is left to generate large bodies of data (many, many binary events), we can use statistics to show that there's an essentially equal number of "1s" to "0s," which you would expect.

In the simplest PEAR experiment, a REG would be turned on, and shown to generate this statistically balanced ratio. Then a human volunteer (or "operator") would be asked to try to influence the REG to produce more "1s" than "0s," or vice-versa, just by willing it. This was called "going high" or "going low." The PEAR scientists would then look for significant imbalances in the data. Basically, the PEAR scientists were trying to see the actual power of intent on the physical world.

We call these experiments "intention experiments," and are currently working to apply the findings to reflection, self-understanding, and emotional intelligence. In a later series of experiments, we found that when an REG is brought into a group environment and run with no explicit intention, it seems that certain kinds of group interaction seem to have an ordering effect on the output of the device. We refer to these experiments as "FieldREG," and are currently in the process of using our findings to quantiatively measure the subjective elements of group dynamics and interpersonal interaction. This is particularly useful in the fields of business, education, and leadership.

While little is known about these effects, we do know for sure that their implications are profound and that they can not be explained by any conventional mechanisms. Our hope is that this introduction to the methods and results of prior experiments will make the rest of our site easier to understand, and also provide a thought-provoking background for those who are just beginning to explore the relationship between consciousness and the physical world. Our updated web site will provide more information about new findings since the closure of the PEAR lab.
