This is the second in a series of short reports on some of the lectures given at The Field Conference in London, April 200’.

At the heart of this talk was a simple premise: the way we feel about things has a physical effect on the world. Roger Nelson of Princeton University believes that ‘What we think and intend does matter to the world.’ In short, to change the world, you have to begin by changing yourself – a good reason if ever I heard of one to back up regular self-healing. Think about this in depth and you come to realise it as the most tremendously empowering realisation: everyone matters and everyone can have a positive effect on the world around us.

To study the effects of a possible global consciousness, the team created a world-spanning network of devices sensitive to coherence and resonance in the mental domain. Continuous streams of data are sent over the internet to be archived and correlated with events that may evoke a world-wide consciousness. Examples that appear to have done so include both peaceful gatherings and disasters: a few minutes around midnight on any New Years Eve, the first hour of NATO bombing in Yugoslavia, the Papal visit to Israel, a variety of global meditations, several major earthquakes, and September 11 2001. The GCP began recording data in August, 1998. It has grown to more than 50 sites around the world, each generating and reporting second-by-second data.

Large scale sports events do not seem to evoke this response (perhaps the contrasting emotions of the two sides cancel each other out, or perhaps sport really isn’t that important to people after all). The EGGs will often begin to rise away from the ‘random walk’ or probability before an event has happened – suggesting some linked global consciousness of what is about to happen.

Below is a graph showing what the raw data coming in looks like.

The next chart shows what the laws of probability predict for the EGGs (Random Event Generators) (the blue or straight line) and below what in fact you find from the data which at key moments in key place deviate significantly away from the expected pattern.

At the top of the next column is what 27 EGGs in 36 zones did on 31/12/1999 – going into the much hyped Y2K or 2000 with huge spikes away from the probable pattern in the minutes around midnight,Is this has sparked your interest in a fascinating subject, then log onto Princeton.ed and do a search for noosphere or Roger Nelson.
