For Healthy Skeptics

The best landmark book that provides the statistical/scientific evidence for this and similar phenomena is The Conscious Universe by Dean Radin, Ph.D. Be sure and read Chapter 13, "A Field Guide to Skepticism", see  reading list   and Critical thinking
 

Statistician Jessica Utts of the University of California Davis concluded:

"The statistical research of the studies we examined are far beyond what is expected by chance. Arguments that these results could be due to methodological flaws in the experiments are soundly refuted. Effects of similar magnitudes to those found in government-sponsored research...have been replicated at a number of laboratories across the world. such consistency cannot be readily explained by claims of flaws or  fraud... It is recommend that future experiments focus on how to make it as useful as possible. There is little benefit to continuing experiments designed to offer proof."
