remote control

We submitted our data for review to very good journals, but no one would review it. ... How do you get peer review when you don't have any peers?

Brenda Dunne, manager of PEAR -- Princeton's Engineering Anomalies Research Laboratory -- which is closing its doors after 26 years of running empirical experiments to ascertain the extent to which the human mind can remotely control machinery. Funded solely by private donations ($10M worth) since 1979, "its equipment is aging, its resources dwindling." As reported on the front page of this morning's New York Times.
