The results of a number of experiments have suggested that a "group" consciousness might exist. The Global Consciousness Project was established to test this hypothesis. The idea was to set up Random Event Generators (REGs) all over the world and have them run continuously, and compare their output at moments of global events with the greatest emotional impact. After an analysis of four years worth of data, a pattern in the REG readings emerged: when people reacted with great emotional intnsity to a major event, the REG machines seemed to react as well. The degree of “order” in the REG machines’ output matched the emotional intensity of the events: the greater the emotional intensity, the greater the “order”. This effect was found most pronounced during the attacks of September 11 2001. Interestingly, the machines’ output became increasingly ordered a few hours before the first tower was hit. Researchers have suggested that 6 billion minds experienced a mass premonition.
