The Global Consciousness Project, also called the EGG Project, is
an international, multidisciplinary collaboration of scientists,
engineers, artists and others.
We collect data continuously from a global network of physical random
number generators located in 65 host sites around the world.
The archive contains more than 12 years of random data in
parallel sequences of synchronized 200-bit trials every second.
Our purpose is to examine subtle correlations that may
reflect the presence and activity of consciousness in the world.
We predict structure in what should be
random data, associated with major global events.
When millions of us share
intentions and emotions the GCP/EGG network
data show meaningful departures from expectation.
The experimental bottom
line has billion to one odds against chance.
This is a powerful finding based in solid science.
Subtle but real effects of consciousness are important
scientifically, but their real power is more direct.
They encourage us to help make
essential, healthy changes in the great systems that dominate our
world. Large scale group consciousness
has effects in the physical world. Knowing this, we
can use our full capacities for creative
movement toward a conscious future.
Institute of Noetic
Sciences provides a logistical home for the GCP.
It is directed by Roger Nelson from his home
office in Princeton, but is not a project of Princeton University.
This website is large and complex. It uses
frames and plain html.
is facilitated by two menus, and requires
liberal use of your back button.
The Main Menu links to details of the scientific experiment.
The Aesthetics menu points to artistic perspectives,
applications, stories, and more.
In the top frame are multi-link buttons that
connect to facilities suggested by their names.
