“Dear Rupert Sheldrake, We carry out the “staring tests”with 7 people in the tranditional way and then we added one element of surprise – which I believe did not make much difference. We had 4 people looking at 4 people however only one was marking down the answers and the others who were being stared at did not know who was doing this. However, it did not seem to be a great idea as we did not notice any difference. The difference that it made it is what I had reported to you before: when 2 people had had a healing and have similarities and affinities then they score higher than the others. You will see that only only pair that scored higher. We will continue this week-end as I have another group. Any suggestions here? People love doing your test – pity it can not be done in a computer. I am sending the papers via post office. All my best regards, Yours sincerely, Zaquie Meredith”“Dear Rupert Sheldrake, You are right. We did the staring tests in class with the idea that you requested, i.e., that the stronger person (influencer) would look at the more sensitive people and the results were amazing: 14 Right and 6 Wrong! The only person which result was inverted actually had said that she felt she was more of an influencer than of a sensitive person, so probably both positions were inverted. I am sending you these results by mail. Perhaps we can dare to say that when we are strolling, walking in the streets, only the mentally stronger people have the “power”to make us stare back at them.! What I had thought previously was that there must be a “connection”between the 2 people so they can score higher – or, at the streets, perhaps some hidden sincronicity… We are pleased to carry out your tests. Any more suggestions? All the best and my best regards,”
