This study was conceived to test the effectiveness of a new complex version of the Ganzfeld experiment, the 'Eigensender' procedure, in which the traditional roles of 'sender' and 'receiver' are merged to maximise psi manifestation. This procedure was developed from notions on the philosophy of science, notions that take a critical look at a purely analytical stance and at intra paradigmatic parapsychology of which the ultimate object is to provide definite answers in terms of known causal mechanisms. An alternative approach is proposed in which the experimental situation is considered an irreducable configuration of elements. This is connected with the idea that rituals and ideas taken from traditions of magic might be used to facilitate psi effects within a controlled setting. A total of 32 sessions were conducted. Highly significant effects were obtained, with 14 hits (43.75%), z = 2.45 (p = 0.012) and a preferential ranking statistic resulting in z = 3.083 (p = 0.0012). The article is concluded with some epistemological recommendations.
