Dear Gloria,

A day or two after Adrachin helped me to get signed up to your wonderful
forum I received a message from David Hawkins. Thinking that it was some
kid fooling around, I didn't reply to his message, sorry now I
hadn't! Just a moment ago I received this message and am realizing that
there is a bigger hand in all of this than what we realize. I've got
another too, saved in Word and will post another time, maybe even
tomorrow. First though I want to ask you if there is a better place for me
to post this kind of message below? I want others to read it, but don't
like cluttering up the forum so much. In fact, am feeling a bit
uncomfortable about being on this site so often, don't want to keep others
from posting messages.

Credit: NASA DEEP in the basement of a dusty university
library in Edinburgh lies a small black box, roughly the size
of two cigarette packets side by side, that churns out random
numbers in an endless stream.

At first glance it is an unremarkable piece of equipment.
Encased in metal, it contains at its heart a microchip no more
complex than the ones found in modern pocket calculators.

But, according to a growing band of top scientists, this box
has quite extraordinary powers. It is, they claim, the 'eye' of a
machine that appears capable of peering into the future and
predicting major world events.

The machine apparently sensed the September 11 attacks on the
World Trade Centre four hours before they happened - but in
the fevered mood of conspiracy theories of the time, the claims
were swiftly knocked back by sceptics. But last December, it
also appeared to forewarn of the Asian tsunami just before the
deep sea earthquake that precipitated the epic tragedy.

Now, even the doubters are acknowledging that here is a small
box with apparently inexplicable powers. 'It's Earth-shattering
stuff,' says Dr Roger Nelson, emeritus researcher at Princeton
University in the United States, who is heading the research
project behind the 'black box' phenomenon.

'We're very early on in the process of trying to figure out what's
going on here. At the moment we're stabbing in the dark.' Dr
Nelson's investigations, called the Global Consciousness
Project, were originally hosted by Princeton University and are
centred on one of the most extraordinary experiments of all
time. Its aim is to detect whether all of humanity shares a single
subconscious mind that we can all tap into without realising.

And machines like the Edinburgh black box have thrown up
a tantalising possibility: that scientists may have unwittingly
discovered a way of predicting the future.

Although many would consider the project's aims to be little
more than fools' gold, it has still attracted a roster of 75
respected scientists from 41 different nations. Researchers from
Princeton - where Einstein spent much of his career - work
alongside scientists from universities in Britain, the Netherlands,
Switzerland and Germany. The project is also the most rigorous
and longest-running investigation ever into the potential powers
of the paranormal.

'Very often paranormal phenomena evaporate if you study them
for long enough,' says physicist Dick Bierman of the University
of Amsterdam. 'But this is not happening with the Global
Consciousness Project. The effect is real. The only dispute
is about what it means.'

The project has its roots in the extraordinary work of Professor
Robert Jahn of Princeton University during the late 1970s.
He was one of the first modern scientists to take paranormal
phenomena seriously. Intrigued by such things as telepathy,
telekinesis - the supposed psychic power to move objects
without the use of physical force - an extrasensory perception,
he was determined to study the phenomena using the most
up-to-date technology available.

One of these new technologies was a humble-looking black
box known was a Random Event Generator (REG). This used
computer technology to generate two numbers - a one and a
zero - in a totally random sequence, rather like an electronic

The pattern of ones and noughts - 'heads' and 'tails' as it were -
could then be printed out as a graph. The laws of chance dictate
that the generators should churn out equal numbers of ones and
zeros - which would be represented by a nearly flat line on the
graph. Any deviation from this equal number shows up as a
gently rising curve.

During the late 1970s, Prof Jahn decided to investigate whether
the power of human thought alone could interfere in some way
with the machine's usual readings. He hauled strangers off the
street and asked them to concentrate their minds on his number
generator. In effect, he was asking them to try to make it flip
more heads than tails.

It was a preposterous idea at the time. The results, however, were
stunning and have never been satisfactorily explained. Again and
again, entirely ordinary people proved that their minds could
influence the machine and produce significant fluctuations on
the graph, 'forcing it' to produce unequal numbers of 'heads' or
'tails'. According to all of the known laws of science, this should
not have happened - but it did. And it kept on happening.

Dr Nelson, also working at Princeton University, then extended
Prof Jahn's work by taking random number machines to
group meditations, which were very popular in America at the
time. Again, the results were eyepopping. The groups were
collectively able to cause dramatic shifts in the patterns of
numbers. From then on, Dr Nelson was hooked.

Using the internet, he connected up 40 random event generators
from all over the world to his laboratory computer in Princeton.
These ran constantly, day in day out, generating millions of
different pieces of data. Most of the time, the resulting graph
on his computer looked more or less like a flat line.

But then on September 6, 1997, something quite extraordinary
happened: the graph shot upwards, recording a sudden and
massive shift in the number sequence as his machines around
the world started reporting huge deviations from the norm. The
day was of historic importance for another reason, too. For it
was the same day that an estimated one billion people around
the world watched the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales at
Westminster Abbey.

Dr Nelson was convinced that the two events must be related in
some way. Could he have detected a totally new phenomena?
Could the concentrated emotional outpouring of millions of
people be able to influence the output of his REGs. If so,
how? Dr Nelson was at a loss to explain it.

So, in 1998, he gathered together scientists from all over the
world to analyse his findings. They, too, were stumped and
resolved to extend and deepen the work of Prof Jahn and Dr
Nelson. The Global Consciousness Project was born. Since
then, the project has expanded massively. A total of 65 Eggs
(as the generators have been named) in 41 countries have now
been recruited to act as the 'eyes' of the project.

And the results have been startling and inexplicable in equal
measure. For during the course of the experiment, the Eggs
have 'sensed' a whole series of major world events as they
were happening, from the Nato bombing of Yugoslavia to the
Kursk submarine tragedy to America's hung election of 2000.

The Eggs also regularly detect huge global celebrations, such
as New Year's Eve. But the project threw up its greatest enigma
on September 11, 2001. As the world stood still and watched
the horror of the terrorist attacks unfold across New York,
something strange was happening to the Eggs. Not only had
they registered the attacks as they actually happened, but the
characteristic shift in the pattern of numbers had begun four
hours before the two planes even hit the Twin Towers.

They had, it appeared, detected that an event of historic
importance was about to take place before the terrorists had
even boarded their fateful flights. The implications, not least
for the West's security services who constantly monitor
electronic 'chatter', are clearly enormous.

'I knew then that we had a great deal of work ahead of us,'
says Dr Nelson. What could be happening? Was it a freak
occurrence, perhaps? Apparently not. For in the closing weeks
of December last year, the machines went wild once more.

Twenty-four hours later, an earthquake deep beneath the Indian
Ocean triggered the tsunami which devastated South-East Asia,
and claimed the lives of an estimated quarter of a million

So could the Global Consciousness Project really be
forecasting the future? Cynics will quite rightly point out that
there is always some global event that could be used to 'explain'
the times when the Egg machines behaved erratically. After all,
our world is full of wars, disasters and terrorist outrages, as
well as the occasional global celebration. Are the scientists
simply trying too hard to detect patterns in their raw data?

The team behind the project insist not. They claim that by
using rigorous scientific techniques and powerful mathematics
it is possible to exclude any such random connections.

'We're perfectly willing to discover that we've made mistakes,'
says Dr Nelson. 'But we haven't been able to find any, and
neither has anyone else. Our data shows clearly that the chances
of getting these results by fluke are one million to one against.
That's hugely significant.' But many remain sceptical.

Professor Chris French, a psychologist and noted sceptic
at Goldsmiths College in London, says: 'The Global
Consciousness Project has generated some very intriguing
results that cannot be readily dismissed. I'm involved in similar
work to see if we get the same results. We haven't managed to
do so yet but it's only an early experiment. The jury's still out.'
Strange as it may seem, though, there's nothing in the laws of
physics that precludes the possibility of foreseeing the future.

It is possible - in theory - that time may not just move forwards
but backwards, too. And if time ebbs and flows like the tides in
the sea, it might just be possible to foretell major world events.
We would, in effect, be 'remembering' things that had taken
place in our future.

[ ed.note: sometimes we dream backwards, too. We start with
the result and work backwards to the cause. Many people are
incarnating backwards in time instead of forward.]

'There's plenty of evidence that time may run backwards,' says
Prof Bierman at the University of Amsterdam. 'And if it's
possible for it to happen in physics, then it can happen in our
minds, too.' In other words, Prof Bierman believes that we are
all capable of looking into the future, if only we could tap into
the hidden power of our minds. And there is a tantalising body
of evidence to support this theory.

Dr John Hartwell, working at the University of Utrecht in
the Netherlands, was the first to uncover evidence that people
could sense the future. In the mid-1970s he hooked people
up to hospital scanning machines so that he could study their
brainwave patterns.

He began by showing them a sequence of provocative cartoon
drawings. When the pictures were shown, the machines
registered the subject's brainwaves as they reacted strongly
to the images before them. This was to be expected.

Far less easy to explain was the fact that in many cases, these
dramatic patterns began to register a few seconds before each
of the pictures were even flashed up. It was as though Dr
Hartwell's case studies were somehow seeing into the future,
and detecting when the next shocking image would be shown
next. It was extraordinary - and seemingly inexplicable.

But it was to be another 15 years before anyone else took
Dr Hartwell's work further when Dean Radin, a researcher
working in America, connected people up to a machine that
measured their skin's resistance to electricity. This is known to
fluctuate in tandem with our moods - indeed, it's this principle
that underlies many lie detectors.

Radin repeated Dr Hartwell's 'image response' experiments
while measuring skin resistance. Again, people began reacting a
few seconds before they were shown the provocative pictures.
This was clearly impossible, or so he thought, so he kept on
repeating the experiments. And he kept getting the same results.

'I didn't believe it either,' says Prof Bierman. 'So I also repeated
the experiment myself and got the same results. I was shocked.
After this I started to think more deeply about the nature of
time.' To make matters even more intriguing, Prof Bierman says
that other mainstream labs have now produced similar results
but are yet to go public.

'They don't want to be ridiculed so they won't release their
findings,' he says. 'So I'm trying to persuade all of them to
release their results at the same time. That would at least
spread the ridicule a little more thinly!'

If Prof Bierman is right, though, then the experiments are no
laughing matter. They might help provide a solid scientific
grounding for such strange phenomena as 'deja vu', intuition
and a host of other curiosities that we have all experienced
from time to time.

They may also open up a far more interesting possibility - that
one day we might be able to enhance psychic powers using
machines that can 'tune in' to our subconscious mind, machines
like the little black box in Edinburgh. Just as we have built
mechanical engines to replace muscle power, could we one day
build a device to enhance and interpret our hidden psychic

Dr Nelson is optimistic - but not for the short term. 'We may be
able to predict that a major world event is going to happen. But
we won't know exactly what will happen or where it's going to
happen,' he says.

'Put it this way - we haven't yet got a machine we could sell to
the CIA.' But for Dr Nelson, talk of such psychic machines -
with the potential to detect global catastrophes or terrorist
outrages - is of far less importance than the implications of
his work in terms of the human race.

For what his experiments appear to demonstrate is that while
we may all operate as individuals, we also appear to share
something far, far greater - a global consciousness. Some
might call it the mind of God.

'We're taught to be individualistic monsters,' he says. 'We're
driven by society to separate ourselves from each other. That's
not right. We may be connected together far more intimately
than we realise.'
