Studies at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) Laboratory have suggested that the mind has the subtle capacity to influence the output of devices known as Random Event Generators (REGs). The Mind Lamp is a new ambient LED lamp, created by Psyleron, in collaboration with researchers from the PEAR lab. By exerting an influence on the quantum-scale probabilistic events that control it, your mind may be able to affect the colors that the Mind Lamp displays.
ABSTRACT: This paper argues that at least one of the following propositions is true: (1) the human species is very likely to go extinct before reaching a “posthuman” stage; (2) any posthuman civilization is extremely unlikely to run a significant number of simulations of their evolutionary history (or variations thereof); (3) we are almost certainly living in a computer simulation. It follows that the belief that there is a significant chance that we will one day become posthumans who run ancestor-simulations is false, unless we are currently living in a simulation. A number of other consequences of this result are also discussed.
Meaningful Correlations in Random Data: Subtle interactions link us with each other and the Earth
When human consciousness becomes coherent and synchronized, the behavior of random systems may change. Quantum event based random number generators (RNGs) produce completely unpredictable sequences of zeroes and ones. But when a great event synchronizes the feelings of millions of people, our network of RNGs becomes subtly structured. The probability is less than one in a billion that the effect is due to chance. The evidence suggests an emerging noosphere, or the unifying field of consciousness described by sages in all cultures.
At any given moment, life is completely senseless. But viewed over a period, it seems to reveal itself as an organism existing in time, having a purpose, trending in a certain direction.
Aldous Huxley (1894-1963)
The School of Wisdom is an idea, and a timeless tradition. It was first re-manifested in modern times in 1920 in Darmstadt, Germany by the efforts of Count Hermann Keyserling. The School has had many important students and teachers over the years, including psychologist, Carl Jung, translator of the I Ching and sinologist, Richard Wilhelm, German novelist and Noble prize winner, Hermann Hesse, Noble prize winning Indian poet, Rabindranath Tagore, and theologian, Paul Tillich. After the death of Count Keyserling in 1946, his son, Arnold Keyserling took over this idea/tradition. In the early 1990s Arnold for the first time allowed two of his American students, Ralph and Molly, to begin using the School of Wisdom name and carry on its tradition and ideas. Today most of the activities of the School of Wisdom are carried out in CyberSpace.
