Effect of Consciousness Fields on Random Events at Public Gatherings: An Exploratory Study
Background: The existence of the psychokinetic potential of the human consciousness through the interactions between the man and the physical systems has explored the ability of the mind to collapse the randomness of the physical system. Aims and Objectives: To study the effect of a collective gathering of people doing a common activity on the random event generator (REG) and to explore if there was a collapse in the random behavior of the REG data corresponding to epochs of attentiveness in field settings. The group activity chosen were the events of Mysore Dasara. Methods: The field REG was placed proximally to the events happening, and a recording of random data was continuous from the program commencement time to its conclusion time. Results: Significant anomalous deviations was observed with P < 0.05 during the periods of guests arrival, marathon (P = 0.02), acrobat performances (P = 0.03), inauguration (P = 0.05) in the Yoga Program. In the dance program missing boy announcement, felicitation for lead dancer 2 (P = 0.01), musical band 2, lead dancer solo and team performances, magical tricks and war scenes of the dance (P = 0.02), lead dancer 1 performances (P = 0.03 and P = 0.02), group dance (P = 0.008), crowd chatting (P = 0.03). REG trend observed during musical band 4 (P = 0.07). During periods of torch light parade show (P = 0.02) and during chief minister and governor arrival REG trend observed (P = 0.08). Conclusion: Epoch’s sustained attention would correspond with significant REG deviations and the momentum of focused attention also influences the REG behavior.
