I personally think the evidence is overwhelming that the minds intention can change physical objects from random probabilities to a coherent state. This would go even much deeper than the quantum mind and suggest there's 3 layers to consciousness. The User, the Quantum Mind and the Classical brain. The User is the Maestro of the Orchestra that's the human body.

Again, this is science even though people have tried to regulate any talk of consciousness as pseudoscience if it doesn't comply with the materialist fantasy that the mind and anything associated with consciousness must emerge from the material brain. There's zero evidence to support this notion yet this is labeled scientific when it's more like wishful thinking. Here's more:


The world reads news together. The world listens to music together. But can the world feel together? And furthermore, can this shared awareness - this collective consciousness - actually impact the physical world?

What would you do if you could tap into that collective consciousness?

Hardware hacker Adam Michael Curry wants to do just that, by releasing a smartphone app based on scientific research that suggests human consciousness can influence physical reality.


Again, there needs to be more serious scientific inquiry into these areas because the evidence supporting this is growing all the time. We can't just have a blind, stick your head in the sand approach to this because it goes against a persons pre-existing belief system.

If the intention of the mind can bring about coherence from randomness, this is huge. And test after test seems to confirm this.


The app, aptly called Collective Consciousness, is already generating some serious buzz around its potential. It's backed by a team of leading consciousness researchers and Silicon Valley techies, including Dean Radin of IONS, Robert Jahn of Princeton University, and Joey Primiani - Lady Gaga's own tech boy genius.

Here's the idea. Laboratories like Princeton University's PEAR lab, the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and others have been doing experiments to look at how deeply consciousness (our minds) are connected to the fabric of physical reality. They've shown some interesting results that our minds can have an unexplained ordering affect on chaotic systems. The Global Consciousness Project has been showing that a few dozen such systems, called random number generators spread around the world can produce anomalies when global events happen that polarize human attention. Most famously during the attacks of 9/11.

Me, I'm not a scientist, nor do I play one on TV, thus these thoughts are in a jumble as I hasten toward the birthday party of the one and only Nichelle Nichols -- she of original Star Trek fame ("Hailing frequencies open!") -- where I am to interview Mr. Curry as he presents Ms. Nichols with his impressive "Mind Lamp" (in brief: a glowing tube which changes to the color one contemplates!). It's based on the same technology as his app.


This goes further than just these experiments. When you look at the work of Radin, Sheldrake and others. "Mainstream" science just says this can't be true or just flat out lie and say there isn't any evidence for this. Luckily, some are beginning to see the head in the sand approach makes no sense.


The potential for consciousness to influence chaotic systems is called mind-matter interaction. It's still controversial, but is getting lots of mainstream attention these days. (This month 80 scientists including a Nobel prize winner called for more research into the field).

And now, a little experiment: Nichelle and her partygoers gather around Adam and the mysterious little lamp, which glows ghostly white. The lamp employs a random number generator similar to the mechanism in Curry's app. Each possible color is an equal probability outcome of this random system, and Nichelle is instructed to use her mind to tip the scale towards the color she desires. We are mesmerized as the lamp slowly fades to red, indeed the color she intended. We repeat this experiment several times, the lamp always obeying the intention of the group.


Here's more about Adam Curry and a video to go with it.


The unassuming Adam is a pretty accomplished kid; as a teenager, MIT named an asteroid after him for inventing a method to help forecast seismic events, like earthquakes. He has his hands in multiple projects, and lives, rather romantically, in the converted attic of a theatre in San Francisco.

At the end of the day, there needs to be even more rigorous studies and research in these areas instead of the knee jerk response that it can't be true.

We just "live" in a very advanced computer game,

When you die, or when I did, you realise how funny it is , how worried you got - and it was all a game!

This subject has always fascinated me. The Global Consciousness Project has allegedly displayed some pretty head-scratching results. For those who may not be familiar with it, here is Dean Radin to explain:



Very interesting stuff.

Ive had that app sense it came out and it never works. it says building planet then it closes down after that even when im right beside the wifi hub.

There's zero evidence to support this notion yet this is labeled scientific when it's more like wishful thinking.


There is also zero evidence for a mind or consciousness. Neither have ever been observed.

This makes no sense. Of course there's evidence for the mind and consciousness. We can clearly see when the mind has a thought. It registered a physical response in the material brain whether the mind is conscious of a specific actress or they're playing cards. There's also growing evidence that you can't plant memories about different tasks that the mind can recall.

So there's not zero evidence about consciousness and the mind. That's just a silly statement. The questions is, is consciousness a fundamental property of reality, is there a quantum mind, does consciousness emerge from the material brain or are we simulated consciousness.

Again, to say there's zero evidence of the mind and consciousness is just nonsense. These things have been measured and observed.

As far as I know, this app isn't even out yet. Here's the site for the app and it looks like they're in the designing stage. Here's the website:

Here's a screen shot on how the app will look:
