" The Global Consciousness Project (GCP) measures the output deviation of a global network of physical random number generators (RNG) at the time of major world events. The project hypothesizes that the coherent attention or emotional response of large populations induced by the events will correspond to characteristic deviations of the network output. We describe the motivation and scope of the experiment and the analytical procedures employed to test the hypothesis, and present the results of 236 events accumulated over the first nine years of operation.The cumulative significance across all events favors the hypothesis by more than 4.5 standard deviations."
" We also correct some misconceptions and incorrect interpretations of the project that have appeared in the popular press and elsewhere."
