The Global Consciousness Project 

One of the more interesting studies going on at this time is the Global Consciousness Project which has the purpose of determining whether or not extraordinary events which affect the consciousness of great numbers of people (such as 9-11 or Katrina) can also affect mechanical measuring devices. Conceived of and operated by a group of respected scientists, it has been underway for several years, with some truly fascinating results. I won't try to explain the project here, but simply present the following information taken from the site itself. The material includes a brief description plus a listing of the topics covered on the site.

Global Correlations in Random Data
The Global Consciousness Project, also called the EGG Project, is an international and multidisciplinary collaboration of scientists, engineers, artists and others. This website introduces methods and technology and empirical results in one section, and presents interpretations and applications in another.
We have been collecting data from a global network of random event generators since August, 1998. The network has grown to about 65 host sites around the world running custom software that reads the output of physical random number generators and records a 200-bit trial sum once every second, continuously over months and years. The data are transmitted over the internet to a server in Princeton, NJ, USA, where they are archived for later analysis. Individual data create a tapestry of color. The dot below shows coherence.

The purpose of this project is to examine subtle correlations that appear to reflect the presence and activity of consciousness in the world. The scientific work is careful, but it is at the margins of our understanding. We believe our view may be enriched by a creative and poetic perspective. Here we present various aspects of the project, including some insight into its scientific and philosophical implications.
