Maybe the noosphere will become conscious in 2012 as you say.
The internet is certainly helping in bringing everyone together in real time with the same knowledge.

Very inspiring thread!

Art Bell did a number of consciousness experiments on air about 10 years back and they worked, he asked his audience to concentrate on having it rain where there was a drought and within hours it rained for example. He stopped doing them because it scared him and felt he didn't know what he was doing. His thinking was that if he were able to affect a hurricane what is to say that it wouldn't go elsewhere and come back stronger then before.
Looking for an opinion on a thought I just had... Keeping in mind the role that media plays particularly in Western society, where we are constantly drummed with the same images (E.g. sectarian violence in Iraq), do you think these tactics (if they're systematic) can actually impact upon a collective consciousness and therefore impact upon the world that is being created?

Serbsta, could you please answer a few questions?
Exactly what are the graphs showing? Is it deviation from chance in 'coin-flip' trials with a random-number generator?
If so, are the generators automatic or are people pushing buttons at the 65 sites around the world?
What is the deviation in coin flips tracking - what is it supposed to be related to?
Statistical evaluations use a "normalized" database, with normalization based on an empirical estimate of variance for each egg, calculated from its full database of trials. In addition we exclude all "bad data" identified by standardized rules (e.g., trial scores outside the range 55 to 145 are almost certainly errors). The formal database also excludes 13 poorly defined or partially redundant events marked in the results table with a red asterisk. Cases with no normalized calculation are marked with a double asterisk. Statistics for very recent events (marked with ~) will change slightly when normalized calculations are done.
What is the significance of the blue lines? Why do they always have roughly the same shape?
