Global Correlations in Random Data

At universities all over the world are small, very simple electronic number generators dubbed 'eggs' by those that work with them. They record the binary output of these machines and plot the data in graphs, an equal ammount of 0's and 1's will provide a flat graph, which is what you'd expect and what any statistician will tell you the average will be.

It has started to become evident however that certain events can alter the output of these machines, the Global Consciousness Project has been conducting experiments in this field for some time. They have discovered that strangers can alter the output by merely 'willing' it to change, most bizarely thought thy have discovered that these many eggs all over the world are affected at the same time by global phenomena. The funeral of Princess Diana, September 11th attacks and Asian Tsunami all affected egg output significantly.


Now time for the weird part, it is not an enormous leap to believe that thought can affect the output of these machines, our brains and the eggs all work on electrical signals and these can interfere with each other. The fact that this works globally is surpirising, but believable because these horrific events captivate the thoughts of millions all at once. The scarily weird part comes in that the effect of these events happens before the event itself, in the case of september 11th four hours before, in the tsunami 24 hours before.


There is actually real science behind this, and even an explanation as to why the result can happen before the event, but it involves some hairy phsyics. i know now what you're thinking; who works for the GCP? Uri Geller? David Blaine? Well, many respected scientists (over 75) from many countries (over 41) are involved, including professors from Princeton and Edinburgh Universities.

I urge you to give this site a read, it's scary/fascinating stuff.
