‘Maverick’ scientist Rupert Sheldrake has presented the results of his online ‘sense of being stared at‘ experiment, which appear to confirm previous research done by Sheldrake and others. The well-known biologist says that 343 pairs of people have taken part thus far, giving a total of 6,860 trials:
By chance people would be right 50% of the time. In fact the overall score is 60.6% correct…The statistical significance of this result is astronomical, with odds against chance of quadrillions to one.
Sheldrake does point out though that the experiment took place under uncontrolled and unsupervised conditions, and so cheating or unintentional cues cannot be ruled out. You can still take part in the experiment if you wish as it is ongoing.
