The Global Consciousness Project maintains a global network of Random Number Generators; this network has shown non-random activity during widely shared experiences of deeply engaging events. This network is designed to document and display any subtle, but direct effects of our collective consciousness reacting to global events. The research hypothesis predicts the appearance of coherence and structure in the globally distributed data collected during major events that emotionally engage the world population.
The above strip chart displays a 24 hour moving window sum of the variance of the networks generators. Each point on the chart represents the cumulative sum of the random output from the GCP RNG network over the past 24 hours with a resolution of 1-minute. The display can be scaled to show the previous 7, 14, 21 or 28 days of data with the drop down menu in the lower right section of the display. Horizontal red lines represent 95% and 99% confidence intervals for expected range of the network output. While deviations above and below these lines can still be expected from the randomly fluctuating output of the network they are expected to be infrequent. Consistent deviations from randomness correlating with collective consciousness reactions to global events may represent the impact of consciousness on the network.
