The existence of an individual, unified, universal consciousness. Believed by some to be the source of all knowledge and information which psychics, intuitives, mediums tap into (such as the Akashic Records). Global Consciousness has been the subject of scientific study at Princeton University under The Global Human Consciousness Project, in which changes in the global consciousness were measured by changes in random number generators during significant events. An example of the effects of Global Consciousness would be global spikes of non-randomness that occurred both during and before the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami that killed more than 230,000 – 280,000 people. It is believed that during times of great trauma, grief, and loss of human life, the entire field of consciousness can be impacted. Of great interest to note is a theory that non randomness increases in haunted locations.
