The funeral ceremonies for Princess Diana of Wales brought worldwide attention and generated a profound emotional resonance among very large numbers of people. A week later, the funeral ceremonies for Mother Teresa also brought attention from around the world, though with less intense emotional engagement. Data were recorded during these ceremonies in several locations using random event generator devices that have been shown to exhibit anomalous correlations with certain states of human consciousness including emotional resonance in groups.
During the public events of Diana's funeral the composite across 12 independent datasets showed anomalous deviations from expectation, associated with a probability of 0.013. During the public events of Mother Teresa's funeral 11 datasets were recorded, with a composite probability of 0.645 indicating no anomalous deviation.
