In the present experiment, two qigong practitioners were put in separate rooms with communicational deprivation, while the authors measured physiological changes of one of the two, acting a Receiver, when the other, acting as a Sender, attempted to give 'remote influence' to the Receiver at a distance. These subjects had shown statistical significant coincidences of the time of their apparent motions in previous similar experiments by the authors. The Receiver was seated in an electromagnetic shielding cage and the Sender performed only one 'sending' motion per 80-second trial on double blinded and randomized conditions. The Receiver's skin conductances were sampled at a rate of 200Hz using an exosomatic method (DC 0.5V constant). In the results of 35 trials, fluctuation of the Receiver's skin conductance during 'sending' was smaller than before and after.
