I wonder if many have actually heard of the Global Consciousness project (GCP). Here is a link to their home page. http://noosphere.princeton.edu One of their aims was to deduce whether human consciousness affected random number generators and apparently, increase in collective consciousness appears to give structure to seemingly random data. Of course, the data is not really random because there is an algorithm behind it but still it is pretty interesting. The experiments have been going on for decades and have been carefully documented.
