Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

The Global Consciousness Project

Has science discovered a peek into the future?

Real or Illusion?




Wikipedia
The Global Consciousness Project is one of the most significant of current research projects into parapsychology. Based at Princeton, the project researches into the theory that the human consciousness may create an external field which is not detectable via conventional means.

Working on the assumption that while the field of an individual's consciousness is not measurable, the combined field of a large number of people who are experiencing similar thoughts or feelings is measurable, the GCP research asserts that such a field exists.

Their research works by examining the output of hardware random number generators located around the world. The current theory holds that events that have a significant human impact affect the randomness of these generators in a statistically significant way.

Roger D. Nelson started by reviewing two decades of experiments from the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Lab (PEAR) which repeatedly show that random event generators (REG's) seem to be intentionally influenced to bring about a less random sequence of data - in other words, that human intention can reduce natural entropy and create greater coherence within a random series of events.

Analysis of some recent events would seem to indicate that these random event generators might actually react to an event before it happens. This might signal that time flows both ways.

RedNova discusses the random event generators:
The machine apparently sensed the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Centre four hours before they happened - but in the fevered mood of conspiracy theories of the time, the claims were swiftly knocked back by sceptics. But last December, it also appeared to forewarn of the Asian tsunami just before the deep sea earthquake that precipitated the epic tragedy.

Now, even the doubters are acknowledging that here is a small box with apparently inexplicable powers.
Science is still studying this phenomena, I would love to know the what, why and how this effect occurs. Hopefully the crew at Princeton will have more info in the next decade.

What do you think? Can mind effect matter?

If you're really interested in this type of thing, I would advise watching "What the Bleep Do We Know," the box set version. It talked about many things that have to do with quantum physics and mechanics. It's pretty amazing.

That was facinating I will have to add your blog to my favourites

Thanks for the nice comments Michael. I'm glad you found dome things of interest here.

Come back soon.

on random event generator..

We have seen signs of potential previous knowledge "coincidences" as it were dealing with man made objects showing things that just happened. Most people see this as interesting tricks, but perhaps this random event generator may link to this.

For example, one can fold a 20 dollar bill so that it looks strangely like the twin towers burning (9+11=20 another interesting note)

yet the design of the 20s are not new. Also interesting is if you put the flight number of one of the airlines that hit the twin towers into microsoft word, then change the text to wingdings, the pictures show a bomb, and two towers.

The real trick, is using data from the past to predict future events. Unfortunately, random data that seems to fall to a pattern still has no meaning until the event occurs.

Gravatar What is the flight numbers of the planes that hit the twin towers?
