Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Dr. Dean Radin, was recently interviewed on Coast-to-Coast with George Noory about consciousness and psychic phenomena. In the first half of the interview, Dr. Radin discussed his work with the Global Consciousness Project (GCP), along with updates on psi and healing experiments. The GCP has been collecting data for over 23 years using electronic devices called random number generators (RNGs), which are located around the globe. There is evidence that these devices respond to fluctuations in mass attention during significant world events. “The biggest reaction in the RNG data so far,” he said, “is the pandemic, and of course, we’re still in the midst of it.” Rather than a random walk that fluctuates around chance, the curve over the last six months is headed straight down (away from chance), he continued, and this is the most dramatic long-term change observed in the sequences in all their years of data collection. Based on this and many other experiments, Dr. Radin has concluded that mind and matter are interwoven in fundamental ways, and it’s their mysterious interaction that contributes to the effects seen in the GCP.
GCP 2.0 is currently in the works, and the plan is to have many more RNGs placed around the world, perhaps thousands. Dr. Radin added that this will “allow us to have a much better ability to localize where effects are happening, or starting to happen.” He commented that they might have observed that something strange was unfolding in Wuhan, China, if the GCP 2.0 network had already been established in January.
On another topic, Dr. Radin shared that the late Drs. Shafica Karagulla and Viola Neal wrote about how the caudate nucleus in the brain could possibly be a kind of antenna for clairvoyance. He suggested that improved knowledge of brain neuroanatomy and genetics might lead to new technologies that would allow people to modulate their natural psychic abilities.
During the interview, Dr. Radin also reported on the successful experiments by IONS with energy healers whose sessions reduced pain in people with hand and wrist pain
