The Existence of Collective Consciousness Explored in a Radical New Phone App

 What does it really mean to say we are all connected? Three decades of research at Princeton University probed this question, daring to explore radical ideas about the relationship between mind and matter. Controversy stirred when the researchers published surprising evidence that mind and matter reflect each other in a mysterious way. Ordinary individuals were able to shift the distributions of carefully designed random number generators (RNGs) using nothing more than their mental intention. The Princeton researchers seemed to have replicated an enigmatic effect previously reported by physicist Helmet Schmidt back in the 1970s. The underlying probabilities of their sensitive systems were apparently responding to the intentions of otherwise completely separated individuals, revealing a mysterious ordering influence of consciousness. Later, Dean Radin reported similar effects at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. Surprisingly, the RNGs also seemed to respond to marked shifts in attention occurring in their environment, departing from their ordinary random behaviour and producing outputs that were more “ordered.”

Researchers took RNGs to a range of events, including mass meditations, sports events, and other gatherings. Peaks of order were recorded during moments of shared attention and emotions. These controversial effects became the motivation for the Global Consciousness Project, in which psychologist Roger Nelson set up a network of RNGs all around the planet. At first, nobody knew if the RNG network would produce anything significant, but as global events began unfolding, the RNGs responded. Some of the largest effects recorded by the Global Consciousness Project occurred on the fateful day of 9/11. Other events, including presidential inaugurations, tsunamis, and deaths of public figures all seemed to stir the collective consciousness, producing ripples of order in the network. These findings stirred deep questions about the nature of consciousness for those scientists brave enough to confront the evidence.

Today, Adam Michael Curry and a team of leading consciousness researchers want to take these discoveries and put them inside your phone – for free.

“The RNG findings are starting to make more sense with new theories about consciousness and physical reality” says Curry. “This app is a way to probe more deeply into human interconnection.”

collective consciousness app

The Collective Consciousness app is similar to having a Global Consciousness Project node in your pocket, although independent from the GCP.  The phone uses a new method to enable an RNG in the phone when the app is downloaded. This runs constantly in the background of the phone, making micro-measurements and providing statistical feedback in real time. You’ll be able to browse real-time collective consciousness data on a map in the phone. It can also send you push notifications when spikes are detected in the data. So moments of emotion or attention that you experience may register on the phone and show up in the graphs.

And similar to the GCP, these data will be uploaded automatically to a central server, where the team can explore the parameters of mass consciousness effects in a way never before possible. It may even produce good evidence that, as many have speculated, we are all connected in deep ways.

This will be a free app, and the team is running an Indiegogo campaign now to help build it. Here is their website.

  1. If you break down the universe into it’s lowest common denominators then you are left with Thought and Energy. Mater is made by converting energy into mater with thought. So a common law of consciousness is ( If you can think it, it must exist. Because if it did not exist you would not be able to think it.) Thought turns energy into mater, so we should all be careful what we think about because we are creating what we think.

  2. We don’t need an app to prove we are all connected. So much is unseen, yet we seem to rely heavily on our sense perceptions, we seek to prove the constants and truths of this universe that really require no explanation. Sometimes our limited descriptions, explanations, only end up distorting our intuitive understanding of things like collective conscientiousness or the existence of the soul. Nonetheless it is a reason to smile, Knowing we are all connected, and I suppose it is another way to connect with people, heightening that awareness, finding joy or amusement there as well. For its true, we are all one, spiritual entities made of the same light, essence, energy, we separate and individualize ourselves to experience the dichotomy of being connected yet seemingly alone, distinct. We take on our own experiences, our own burdens, struggles, conflicts, goals and challenges to grow, to further understand what unconditional love is, to understand pain, love, glory, gain, loss, the human experience! We have all chosen to be here.

    With that said, I may only be proving my own point, that sometimes it seems the more we try to explain IT, or contain IT, the more we distort the undiluted feeling of just knowing.

    Anyway, thank you for the article, the comment space, and this great site. Much Love.

  3. “Surprising evidence” and “Princeton University” sounds impressive for the superficial reader. However, the institute was closed in 2007 as it did not generate any sound results, and the figures of the experiments are referenced here: http://www.skepdic.com/pear.html What they did was generating statistical noise. If your method works, go predict the lottery outcome, go to Vegas and win the jackpot and you’re my hero.

    1. Except this is not about winning a lottery. You absolutely lack the understanding of this experiment. You see, when you do an experiment repeatedly, while trying to measure something – that something has to significantly change the outcome multiple times in relation to the control group or control experiment (where that “something is not involved at all). That’s how you remove the “statistical noise” that you are talking about. And they probably did it. The point is, they discovered that you can alter the random numbers by your conscious intention. But obviously you can’t do that to absolute precise number you can only set the intention of the value to go higher up or lower down because this is easier to achieve and prove. So this is a good discovery and has nothing to do with loteries so dont be dumb.
      But there is a BUT. When it comes to random number generators, there is no real way of generating a number really randomly through computer algorythms. Cause algorythms are always ordered in some way so you would need some real life random physical fluctuation for example a position of an electron around a nucleus of an atom – that is quantum mechanics which is one of the most random thing in this universe. These RNG’s are called True-Random Number Generators (TRNG’s). Computer algorythms only generate seemingly random order of numbers and these are not really that random as it might seem. These are called Pseudo-Random Number Generators (PRNG’s). We don’t know which ones they used for their experiments but I can say surely that this phone app will use the PRNG. So that’s something that might be interfering with the experiment itself. Also with an app like that there is no control group. So you can’t compare it to anything and that’s coming close to pseudoscience. But if they proved their earlier experiments right with the TRNG’s then there’s no mistake that consciousness will bend the order of numbers whether it is TRNG or PRNG so the app might be a good next step.

  4. The relationship between mind and matter is collective consciousness.
    The vital energy is ensign of existence of all. All are drawing off an unseen spiraling source of vital energy with stimulation and existence. The spiraling wave energy is in fact the true nature and manifestation of “time” with birth and life. It stimulates the event to happen.
    The germ of the world of the world ensign of all creation, be sprang to life and filled the earth and heavens. Even the firm rocks he cleft when passing over, when the five tribes brought sacrifice to Agni (ÿg. 10-45-6)
    The five tribes; five gross elements Pa¤ca MahÈbhÊta, Air water, sky, energy and matter; the assembly of these five with energy transformation is sign of life with voice.

    The man has never seen the voice, yet he see, one man has hearing, but never heard her, but on another man, she showed her beauty as well dressed women to her husband. The voice is earliest with origin of life. The wise men have created the language for communication. It is imprinted in the mind as blessed sign of friendship with music of life in different tones of seven syllables.

  5. The relationship between mind and matter is collective consciousness. The electromagnetic rays travel with vibrations and sound, it has evolved into molecule matter and life from DNA, the vibrations of sound have evolved into thought and words, and identity of an individual in life from generation to generation.

  6. First of all we are still in the dark ages about gravity never mind consciousness. Most people think that gravity is a force pulling us to the earth when I assure you it is a pushing force. If we are on a massive ball spinning at high speed, by all logic the centrifugal force should push us off the planet. Distance from the sun as well as the size of the planet seemingly affects gravity. There is no gravity noted in the vacuum of space so it would appear that matter has to be present and more than likely that the cause of gravity is in relation to energy, ether, a wave or some other source of energy repelling or pushing against matter. Electromagnetic shielding of this force (gravity) has been demonstrated to produce scientific devices that appear to defy the force or affects of gravity yet seemingly we still apply Newtonian thinking for the most part to the subject of gravity. This brings me to my next point. If time is also not linear as we normally measure it from day to night form birth to death then it would be fair to say that it is possible that one day we will never have existed as the possibility of time contracting and expanding much the way a balloon is filled and then empties could be possible. When you convert the statement one day we will never have existed into a theorem, you will see that Einstein gave us some great gifts but he did not give us the total equation to existence itself. Find the existence formula and many of your questions about human consciousness will be answered. We have got to give up some of the notions that we have accepted as fact. We have known for some time the earth is not flat-we should abandon the idea that an apple falls from a tree. I would submit that it is forced downward not pulled. Someone who read this will find the formula.You will have many more answers then 🙂
