The Coronavirus pandemic has made it starkly clear that our societies are intertwined, for better or for worse. This is true at every level – nations, cities, individuals. Our vulnerability to the virus makes us aware that we are all connected.
This is a conclusion that is also drawn, in better times, by the Global Consciousness Project, a long-running scientific experiment studying the effects of shared, coherent consciousness and emotion on data collected from a world spanning network of random sources.
We will talk with Dr. Roger Nelson, the creator and director of this project since 1997 about where it came from, how it works, what he has learned and what its message is for us as we design our future.

About Dr. Roger Nelson:
Roger Nelson, PhD, is Director of the Global Consciousness Project (GCP). He studied physics at the University of Rochester, and experimental psychology at New York University and Columbia. He is the author or co-author of 75 technical papers and two books, Der Welt-Geist: wie wir all miteinander verbunden sind (German) with Georg Kindel, and Connected: the Emergence of Global Consciousness. He was Professor of Psychology at Johnson State College in northern Vermont, and in 1980 joined the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) lab to coordinate research. His focus is on mental interactions, anomalous information transfer, and effects on physical systems by individuals and groups. He created the GCP in 1997, building a world-spanning random number generator network designed to gather evidence of coalescing global consciousness. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Noetic Sciences in Petaluma, California. He is married to Reinhilde (Lefty) Luedtke and has one son, Greg. He lives in Princeton, NJ, USA.
