Japan’s earthquake, tsunami and reactor problems appear to have influenced a parapsychology experiment based at Princeton University. The Global Consciousness Project is a global network of sensors that is the outgrowth of three decades of laboratory experiments which seem to show that human consciousness effects random events.
The sensors, called Random Number Generators, or RNGs. are based on electronic coin-flipping. They generate random 1s and 0s according to the “noise” of circuit elements. According to the website, http://noosphere.princeton.edu/, humans can generate a slight, but statistically noticeable skewing of the outcome of a large numbers of trials. In effect, people’s consciousness throws the odds from the expected 50-50 shake of 1s and 0s, to an outcome slightly favoring one or the other.
The Princeton group has installed these RNGs all over the world, and claim to have found hundreds of statistically significant correlations with world events ranging from the funeral of Princess Dianna to midnight on Y2K.
One of the RNGs is located at Meiji University at Meiji, Japan. According to the website, “We see a striking deviation away from expectation beginning around the time of the earthquake and persisting to the end of the formally specified event.”
The green line shows a -2.4 sigma deviation from true randomness, which should be along the horizontal black line. The red line is the deviation for the worldwide network of sensors. The time of the quake is marked by the black box at the left of the horizontal black line.
The report states “The results from the instances that have been analyzed thus far show considerable evidence of a correlation between particular events and the data from our network of random event generators.” It adds, “The overall result is highly significant. The odds against chance are much greater than a million to one.”
