While normal information transmission routes (the senses of sight, hearing etc.) were cut off, two persons performed to-ate (an ancient Japanese martial art). The two persons were placed in separate rooms during the experiment; the sender emitted qi only once during an 80-second trial on double blinded and randomized conditions. The physiological data of the receiver were measured during this remote action. A change of the receiver’s hand surface temperature was detected when she said she had felt the qi. From average data of trials, it was shown that her hand surface temperature at the laogong point increased during the experiment. However, before and after the sending time there was no obvious change of temperature.
