Intention-Based Technology Remote Capabilities

Intention-Based Technology Demonstrates Remote Capabilities

Press Release, VortexDNA, Christchurch, New Zealand

Thursday 18th November, 2010.

Technology company VortexDNA has demonstrated the ability of its new IntentionDirect technology to influence remote outcomes. In a proof of concept involving the New Zealand dollar and the US dollar, the company achieved statistically significant results over 4 days in October. The results were reviewed by Ernst and Young.

“We are very pleased with the results from IntentionDirect,” says VortexDNA CEO, Branton Kenton-Dau. “For ten years we have been demonstrating the capabilities of human intention. This test confirms that human intention is a physical force that can be directed remotely to do useful work. This greatly extends our understanding of our capabilities as human beings.”

Replicating observations found in quantum physics, the IntentionDirect technology operates remotely to influence the intended outcome. “The results we see using human intention, such as the ability to operate remotely, parallel many aspects of the quantum world,” says Kenton-Dau. “Science has led the way and IntentionDirect is now looking at how we can put the science to practical use."

The October proof of concept divided 4 days into 15-minute periods. These were then randomly placed into two groups – one for the IntentionDirect process to operate upon, the other to act as a control.

The IntentionDirect technology was then activated for the relevant 15-minute periods. When the test was complete the results between the IntentionDirect periods and the control periods were analysed. At the 1 minute level the IntentionDirect periods had statistically significant higher volatility than the control set. Returns were also greater. Ernst and Young independently reviewed the findings.

“It’s still early days,” says David O’Reilly former Principal at Renaissance Technology and a major shareholder in the company. “The next step is to deliver consistent results for our clients.”

VortexDNA is currently using its IntentionDirect technology to improve customer retention in the telecommunications sector and to reduce car accidents for auto insurers. It is also in discussion with several major airlines to pilot the technology to reduce fuel consumption.

“We are working to build our production capability,” says Kenton-Dau. “Whether it is fewer car accidents or better fuel efficiency for aircraft, our goal is to assist our clients to meet their most pressing needs.”

The company however believes there are also ethical considerations for the new technology. “One of the core values of the company,” says O’Reilly, “is wholeness. If something doesn’t work for the good of the whole - that means everyone - we don’t do it. There are enough profitable good causes out there to take us a long way.”
