Scoop Oddity #3: A Disturbance In The Force
An innovative research programme at Princeton is attempting to measure disturbances in the zeitgeist, or global consciousness. A series of random number generators around the world (called eggs, some of which are in New Zealand) have been wired together, and, the experiment appears to show that at moments of moral intensity – e.g. the Funeral of Diana, the Terror Attacks in New York – the randomisers get less random.
The picture below is a graph of the time around the World Trade Center attack , showing the chance of a random variation in egg activity that occurred occurring randomly.
The odds of the observed Trade Center Bombing variation – force disturbance – shown below taking place at all are less than 250 to one at peak. As can be seen the peak in the disturbance is perfectly timed to coincide with the actual crash of the first aircraft into WTC Tower 1.

We do not feel that our minds are isolated within our bodies. In truth, we experience the world with beautiful immediacy, we know our loved ones from afar, and we leap in thought to the stars. Research on anomalies of consciousness shows that we may have direct communication links with each other, and that intentions can have effects in the world despite physical barriers and separations. Evidence compels us to consider that consciousness may operate as a nonlocal field. The Global Consciousness Project (GCP) takes this possibility a step further, proposing that the fields generated by individual consciousness would interact and combine, and ultimately have global dimensions. Usually, because we are busy with individual lives, there is little to produce structure in the field, so it is random. But occasionally there are global-scale events that bring great numbers of us to a common focus. To study the effects of a possible global consciousness, we have created a world-spanning network of detectors sensitive to coherence and resonance in the mental domain. Continuous streams of data are sent over the internet to be archived and correlated with events that may evoke a world-wide consciousness. Examples that appear to have done so include the funeral ceremonies of Princess Diana, a few minutes around midnight on any New Years Eve, the first hour of NATO bombing in Yugoslavia, and earthquakes in Turkey, Central America, India.
