In April of 1987, the Research Society of the Natural Mysteries of

the Beijing University organized a series of lectures, in which Mr. Wang

Yonghuai delivered a speech entitled 'The Effects of Imaginative Faculty.' In his speech, Mr. Wang suggested the idea of quantitatively

measurement of the effect intensity of the human latent faculties

(including qigong functions and peculiar functions) by a smooth stochastic

process.

In physics, Brownian Movement is a classical and typical experiment of a smooth stochastic process. The random movement of small particles suspended in macroscopic static liquid, resulting from the impact of molecules in the surrounding fluid, conforms to the normal distribution

Here, q(x)dx denotes the probability of the particles being

displaced from x to x+dx in x direction (in a level direction) in the course of time, delta t-o is a constant, determined by delta t, mass and radius of particles, viscosity and temperature of medium. According to Maxwell-Boltzman distribution function, we have

This paper presents the result of a typical experiment, which was

carried out strictly under the normal procedure of the standard Brownian

Movement experiment. It recorded a group of 500 data in case of

Performer A or B's mind power interference and also a comparative

group of data in absence of any mind power interference.

The result of the experiment showed that while the data of the

comparative group were identical with the theoretical calculations,

evident deviations from the theoretical calculations occurred in the data

of the mind-power-interfered group---a value changed by 24%. With the

various other reasons for such deviations considered to the greatest

extent, the statistical significance of P< 10 % still stands.

This demonstrates that the change of random distribution occurred

in the mind-power interfered group is not an accident but an oriented

systematic deviation instead. In other words, the performer realized

orientatedly a less than 10% probability in the course of his affecting the Brownian Movement.

Many qigong experiments acquired the statistical results containing

very striking deviations, but this experiment proves only that deviations

do exist, probably because 1. The quantity of samples in this experiment

is relatively large; 2. The samples in this experiment are completely

isolated, unlike other experiment, in which the effected objects form one

system and thus enlarge the quantity of functions in its effects.

Since the law of the Brownian Movement has been fully investigated and the relevant mathematical tools have long been perfected, it is possible for us to search for a deeper insight with them into the mechanism of human latent faculties effects and eventually discover a measuring criterion (such as the ability to realize events of little probability) to quantitatively describe the effect-intensity of human latent faculties, so as to lay an experimental foundation of establishing a phenomenological model for the study of the human latent faculties effects.
