RNG results are in alignment with quantum measurement speculations Results are not chance, poor quality, selective reporting, or non-repeatable Effects are weak in magnitude Effects are not force-like at the bit level, or simple causal mechanisms Prediction If mind and matter are related then fluctuations in mass mind might be reflected as fluctuations in mass matter October 1995 - OJ Simpson Verdict OJ Simpson Verdict 1000
