While I was wrapping up a longer than expected blog post about the concepts of Justice, I came across this incredibly fascinating video about some scientific approaches about a collective consciousness and just had to post something about it.

This is probably one of the better scientific presentations explaining the concepts of a Global or Collective Consciousness that I’ve seen in a long time. There have been numerous hints about some kind of connection between a collective consciousness such as the random number generator project and other proposed theories by the Global Consciousness Project but this gives a good scientific explanation about what’s happening behind the scenes and it all has to do with electromagnetic fields and our unconscious sensing of this information.

It’s a bit of a long video so I’ll recap what Michael Persinger, a cognitive neuroscience researcher, gave the lecture on.

  • The connection we share is appearing to have something to do with the electromagnetic fields surrounding Earth. This is evidenced by those conducting a Remote Viewing and having disruptions due to electromagnetic variations both man-made and naturally occurring.
  • The sharing of these electromagnetic fields creates a synthesized consciousness between two conscious beings (this helps explains fish and bird seemingly instant movement patterns)
  • New research suggests that photons are literally emitted from the brain and (taking a bit of a leap) can be possibly connected to quantum entanglement and help explain information transfer (as crude as it is now) from one consciousness to another.

This small list doesn’t give the lecture justice so take the time and give it a go.

What do you think? Possible? Ridiculous? Intriguing?

    Watched it, and I’m definitely skeptical. The remote viewing piques my interest just enough to remember there are a lot of things we haven’t figured out yet. However, there are a lot of credible models for swarming behavior that don’t involve or require any type of collective consciousness.

    I won’t deny that electromagnetism is fascinating- of the fundamental interactions, it’s the one that I research & experiment with the most. There are breakthroughs in the field that I would be thrilled to see during our lifetime.

    I also want to believe in the idea of collective consciousness, but observe actions in our culture on a daily basis that suggest individuals are suffering from a fundamental disconnect from the rest of humanity; and have only had the spine-tingling moments that seem to affirm it a couple times in my life.

    Thanks for the post.

    I’m with you Lloyd. There’s enough information / “evidence” in the possibility of a collective consciousness (ie: random number generator, remote viewing, etc) being real enough to be a possibility but it’s not overwhelming. People swear by OBE’s and a very convincing man by the name of Thomas Campbell (posts about him coming soon) talks about data constructs.

    Collective Consciousness is just another possibility in this wicked, twisting search for truth.
