    (Sub-title: Anomalous human-machine interactions involving a Pseudo random number generator (Pseudo REG) and ArtREG.) In 1979, the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) program was established to study anomalous consciousness-related phenomena of possible relevance to basic physical science and engineering practice. A large number of controlled experiments have been conducted in which an operator’s intention has been proved to have a direct effect on the behavior of sensitive physical devices. In Black Box, participants are invited, both individually and in groups, to interact directly with PEAR software. A body of data will be collected and forwarded, raising such questions as possible gender “signatures” and remote effect.
