Has science discovered a peek into the future?
Real or Illusion?
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.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.
Now, even the doubters are acknowledging that here is a small box with apparently inexplicable powers.
What do you think? Can mind effect matter?
