Global Consciousness Project

Here is a recent article about the "Global Consciousness Project" at Princeton. This work (if true) suggests, remarkably, that statistical deviations from randomness (and correlations) among the behaviors of a widely separated network of random number generators are strongly correlated with (and often predate!) major world events. The first stunning "correlation" occured four hours prior to the 9/11 attacks; since then the project has carefully documented and studied hundreds more. I have not looked at the details of the work yet, but -- again, if the results are real, and undoctored -- the implications are staggering and deep indeed.

Here are the links to the article and project homepage.

A very well written blog. Keep it up ...

Hi there

Apologies for posting an off topic question here.

I am inviting your views on ABORTION in order to present a case to help those in the developing world.

I personally see abortion as a NECESSARY EVIL and that unwanted pregnancy is not only a personal problem and it is also a very real problem for the society at large.

Do you think it is right to burden say a 15 years old school-going girl with a new life when she is yet to have any economic mean to sustain herself and obviously, most girls of her age are not mentally ready for a family life. Furthermore, is it fair to rob her of her career, aspiration, dream etc., in the name of preserving a life that is yet to be fully developed?

If you have an opinion, please email it to me at or if you wish, you may post your comment here: Your Opinion Counts!
