We carried out clairvoyance experiments and measured several physiological values to clarify the phenomenon of clairvoyance. We found that the subject's sympathetic nerve system acted strongly and continuously and her parasympathetic nerve system strengthened instantaneously. Both blood flows at her neck and forehead were increased. Furthermore, her blood pressure increased and oxygen level in the blood decreased. We thought these effects were because her brain consumed so much oxygen and also energy. A vibration phenomenon was found in the GSR data. EEG topography showed her visual area and the frontal lobe were becoming active when this phenomenon appeared. Electrical potential of those places rose impulsively; when the potential between two points rose, those points were connected. We found that physiological data changed greatly when activity of the right brain side became high in the frontal lobe in particular.
