We may have a way to foresee important events up to four hours in advance.
How? By using the data produced by Princeton University's Global Consciousness Project:
In short, a few months ago news outlets were flooded with stories about premonitions concerning the tsunami. Lost in that pack of tales was a
somewhat revolutionary observation that had been made by researchers at Princeton U: Their random number generators, prior to the tsunami, suddenly
produced highly improbable computations. Oddest of all, though, was the disclosure that their machines had, for years, undergone mathematical
'spikes' whenever something profound had happened to many people (these machines jumped prior to 9-11, for instance). The inference made by many
people was profound... Either major events had a mysterious affect on the mathematical order of the world OR human beings, when deeply upset, could
project some aspect of their consciousness through time and space and alter random mathematical computations:
Now, when this story broke, it was carried on a small thread at ATS. Unfortunately, because the initial post writer described these findings as
having been observed by "new age" scientists the story, and the thread, didn't gain much attention at ATS because many readers just dismissed it as
hocus without reading into it. Lost, too, was the realization that ATS members could monitor the data from Princeton and use it to predict major
world events (earthquakes, attacks, etc).
So... what I am proposing is that we, here at ATS, keep up a watch over the Princeton data. Whenever something unusual happens we could alert the
board and monitor the news for anything that might fit the numerical spikes. Whenever a member thinks that they see something unusual they could
update this thread with their take on the latest Princeton data (a link to the real time data can be found at the bottom of the project's main
Anyways, I don't want this thread to be a competitor to other discussion threads that may have mentioned this project. I would like this to be a
watch in the same vein as the earthquake and strange weather watches.
Together, we'll be able to see if we can predict history.
