ECGs of a qi-receiver during To-ate (remote action; an ancient Japanese martial art) were analyzed. Two practitioners were placed in separate rooms which had an electromagnetic shield room for the receiver to cut normal information transfer. At a time set randomly within 80 seconds (1 trial), one practitioner (sender) emitted qi. The other (receiver) attempted to perceive the qi. Their sending time, receiving time and physiology data were recorded. The receiver's ECG R-R intervals were measured. Heart beat fluctuations were analyzed before and after the sending and receiving times. In trials within a 5-second time difference between the sending and receiving times, coefficients of variation of R-R intervals between a 15-second period before and a 15-second period after the sending and receiving times each showed statistical significant.
