The Global Consciousness Project (GCP, also called the EGG Project) is a parapsychology experiment begun in 1998 as an attempt to detect possible interactions of “global consciousness” with physical systems. The project monitors a geographically distributed network of hardware random number generators in a bid to identify anomalous outputs that correlate with widespread emotional responses to sets of world events, or periods of focused attention by large numbers of people.
Supporters and skeptics have referred to the aim of the GCP as being analogous to detecting “a great disturbance in the Force.”
I wonder if this can also work backward, generating quality random numbers starting from non-emotional responses. /dev/erandom
