    Nah, I don't buy it. They're using correlations and there are spurious correlations everywhere. :dontknow:

    Tea prices and baseball game attendance and suicide rates. Really means nothing.






    Granger Causality would be a more meaningful statistical test IMO. :coffee:

    This documentary I was watching said that global consciousness meters spiked well before any of the events on the morning of 9/11 happened.

    Some have made the case that the stock market being a forward looking pricing device predicted 9/11....It was in full crash mode leading up to 9/11

    All I know is I want the coffee to be hot, and the beer to be cold.

    Everything else in the minutia is irrelevant.

    This is the formal analysis of the global consciousness project results for 9/11 from Princeton: http://noosphere.princeton.edu/911formal.html The operative phrase I see in all the text there is "marginally significant."

    Could something like how several different ancient societies who didn't ever know the other existed all constructed pyramid shaped buildings around the same time be attributed to global consciousness?

    One should only reject the null hypothesis at α = 0.05 or less. :grad:
