The Collective Consciousness app is based on several decades of laboratory investigations into the relationship between consciousness and the physical world, which is generally called "mind-matter interaction." In the simplest sense, labs have produced good evidence that conscious intention or attention can influence probabilistic physical systems, such as random number generators (RNGs).
RNGs produce completely unpredictable sequences of zeros and ones. But research at IONS, Princeton University's PEAR lab, and elsewhere has demonstrated that human consciousness can affect the behavior of these RNGs, in a way that can be measured statistically.
The Global Consciousness Project has also shown that RNGs spread around the world produce statistical anomalies (unexplained coherence) when global events synchronize the attention and emotions of millions of people. Recent examples include the death of Nelson Mandela, and the attacks of 9/11 (below).
