Obama and "global consciousness"

Collective consciousness and the inauguration (Dean Radin)

This is an exploratory analysis, so it shouldn't be regarded as persuasive as a preplanned analysis would be. But still, the coincidence in time between what was arguably the single most anticipated moment by hundreds of millions of viewers during the inauguration, and the spike in odds at the same time, is quite striking.

One the subject of Obama, tor.com have an incredible short comic strip involving Obama, a time-travelling Obama from the future hovering over the White House in a ufo, Novelty Theory, and McKenna's Time Wave 2000.

Really worth a look if any of the above floats your boat!

So, according to the Global Consciousness Project, from which Radin's post derives, "...65 host sites around the world running custom software that reads the output of physical random number generators and records a 200-bit trial sum once every second, continuously over months and years" somehow correlate the firing of random number generators (RNGs) with mass human consciousness focused on certain events, though exactly how this is done is not clearly explained.

The chart on Radin's site shows a flucuation of the odds above normal (equal to one, or random quantum noise) as 450 to 1 at the time of Obama's swearing in, as supposed evidence of mass human minds acting on the RNGs to produce the anomolous results. But there is no explanation as to how those odds were determined.

See: http://noosphere.princeton.edu/

The GCP site leaves a lot of basic questions unanswered as to just how they correlate alleged non-random firing of RNGs with events involving large numbers of people to derive these results.

I think these findings are highly suspect, based on the methodology and procedures used, which are poorly documented. I dunno, call me a skeptic, but I'd like to see a little more scientific empiricism, clear explanation, and peer review myself.

Caveat emptor.
