begun the difficult task of fitting mind and consciousness into the theories that work so
well to describe the material world. Yet, our personal experiences and a growing number of
good experiments show that consciousness and intention can have subtle but important
effects in the real world. We know that groups of people sometimes experience a special
resonance of feelings and ideas, and some recent scientific evidence indicates that
effects of coherent group consciousness can be detected with appropriate instruments. The
Global Consciousness Project (GCP) is an international collaboration of researchers who
are studying such extraordinary qualities of consciousness. Our goal is to extend this
research to global dimensions via the Internet.
The GCP uses new technology and methods designed to record and visualize effects of events
that may evoke a world-wide consciousness. Examples from the recent past that appear to
have done so include the funeral ceremonies of Princess Diana; the opening of the Winter
Olympics in Nagano, Japan; a few minutes around midnight on New Years Eve; and the first
hour of NATO bombing on the 24th of March, 1999 in Yugoslavia. It will come as no surprise
that we predict the turn of the Millennium will have a measurable effect in the subtle
realms of interconnected human consciousness.
