Correlations of continuous random data with major world events

  title={Correlations of continuous random data with major world events},

  journal={Foundations of Physics Letters},
The interaction of consciousness and physical systems is most often discussed in theoretical terms, usually with reference to the epistemo-logical and ontological challenges of quantum theory. Less well known is a growing literature reporting experiments that examine the mind-matter relationship empirically. Here we describe data from a global network of physical random number generators that shows unexpected structure apparently associated with major world events. Arbitrary samples from the…

The Emotional Nature of Global Consciousness
Over the past 10 years, the Global Consciousness Project has repeated a basic hypothesis test about 250 times. The hypothesis is that data collected from a globally distributed network of physical

The Global Consciousness Project (GCP) is a long-term experiment which investigates the proposition that direct correlations of mind and matter may occur on a global scale. The Project is motivated
Detecting Mass Consciousness: Effects of Globally Shared Attention and Emotion
A long term research program called the Global Consciousness Project is designed to identify and study effects of mass consciousness engendered by shared attention and emotion. An operationally
Physics Without Causality — Theory and Evidence
The principle of cause and effect is deeply rooted in human experience, so much so that it is routinely and tacitly assumed throughout science, even by scientists working in areas where time symmetry
The GCP Event Experiment: Design, Analytical Methods, Results
Studies of anomalous correlations between mind and matter usually focus on participating subjects and isolated target systems. We report on a decade1long experiment which finds that anomalous
Anomalous Anticipatory Responses in Networked Random Data
We examine an 8‐year archive of synchronized, parallel time series of random data from a world spanning network of physical random event generators (REGs). The archive is a publicly accessible matrix

Evidence for consciousness-related anomalies in random physical systems
Speculations about the role of consciousness in physical systems are frequently observed in the literature concerned with the interpretation of quantum mechanics. While only three experimental
