Electroencephalograms (EEGs) of three Chinese Qi-gong masters and three healthy and sound Japanese men as their receivers were measured simultaneously for each pair. Two of these pairs were examined under double-blind test conditions, by which the Qi-receivers, as well as all researchers, could not know the time when the Qi-gong masters emitted Qi. We have previously reported that the changes in the EEGs of Qi-gong practitioners while emitting Qi appeared as similar changes in the EEGs of their subjects. In this report no clear synchronized changes were found in the β waves. The a phase difference between the occipital and frontal regions (τm) of Qi-gong masters becomes significantly shorter during Qi-gong. Even under the double-blind test conditions, the τm of the receivers also became shorter during Qi-gong than that during the resting state. During quiet Qi-gong meditation by the practitioner, there was a small influence on his subject. The a peak-frequency of the three masters became faster during Qi-gong,and this was reflected in the receivers. The power value of the a waves tended to decrease during Qi-gong, as we have reported before. However, its changing rate was small. These results show that 'Qi' is not merely a so-called placebo, but something that can be transmitted trans-personally.
