Can I participate in your experiments?
All the participants in PEAR’s experiments are anonymous, uncompensated volunteers who are willing to commit at least ten hours of their time to generating data in our laboratory. If you would like to become an experimental operator, you should be willing to agree to these conditions and live within reasonable travel distance from Princeton. Contact us by phone (609) 258-5950 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an appointment to visit.
Please note: PEAR does not “test” people and does not validate their capabilities. We do not engage in any psychological testing or physiological monitoring, nor can we offer advice or references to individuals who have had unusual experiences and are looking for counseling or training.
Stanley Jeffers, a professor of physics at York University in Toronto, attempted to conduct experiments that were similar to Pear's, but couldn't replicate the results. Researchers at two German labs, working in cooperation with Pear, also were unable to replicate results using the same equipment that Pear used.
Environmental conditions -- such as room temperature -- also don't matter, but the [participant's] mood and attitude do. It helps, for example, if the participant believes he or she can affect the machine.
