I see there is some confusion regarding the Global Consciousness Button.
I used to check on it quite often (no special reason, it's just interesting to watch), and even had one incorporated into one of the blogs to which I
The colour red does not mean that something (necessarily) "bad" will occur. It simply indicates unusually high - or statistically significant -
percentage of cohesion. And most colours appear every single day, if only for a few seconds or a minute.
But it's not random. I have, for example, noticed that the button went orange, then red on December 31st, around 20h UTC; I noticed that happening a
few years in a row. My "lay" explanation is that it may signal the advent of the New Year being celebrated across the easternmost part of Europe
(parts of Russia and other highly populated countries).
Conversely, the colour blue (it's a watery blue) does not indicate that "nothing" is going to happen, but it does signal "anti-cohesion" - and,
interestingly enough, I have found it to be much more rare than the colour red.
As a matter of fact, yesterday, around the time - well, about an hour earlier - that the asteroid was supposed to collide with the atmosphere, the
previous green colour went to pale blue - the highest state of anti-cohesion.
(BTW, I'd love to hear an explanation from fellow GCP observers, if anyone has one.)
As for our "collective unconscious" (not our "subconscious" as some called it), IF it exists - and I have seen no reason to disbelieve it does,
quite the opposite - then it is obviously present and potentially identifiable everywhere: in our imagery and most certainly in our language. (How
could it NOT be present in it?)
Which makes the assumption that trends can be gleaned from language (and/or imagery, like films) a perfectly plausible - indeed, logical -
Just for the record, I didn't think anything cataclysmic was going to happen at any predicted time, and was not surprised when it didn't.
But that doesn't mean that the premise itself is useless.
