Description: Retropsychokinesis (RPK) is the claimed ability of certain subjects to alter random data generated, but not examined, prior to the time the data are presented to the subject. Read about or run bell curve, clock face, or pendulum feedback programs (Java applets) which translate a generator's stream of random bits into various graphical representations, revealing the extent to which the bit stream is departing from the most probable result of an equal number of ones and zeroes. Analysis of experimental results includes an illustrated introduction to probability and statistics using coin flips. Download source code or view a template for new experiments; read research papers, a retrocausality bibliography, a statistical database of major RPK experiments, interviews, and more. Also, request HotBits, a genuine random number generator based on radioactive decay, a process fundamentally governed by the inherent uncertainty in the quantum mechanical laws of nature.
