...and now for something completely different.

In fact, it's so different that when I read this article shared by G.B., I realized that I'd never heard of this before. That's saying something for a hack from South Dakota who specializes in "strange stuff." And in reading the article, I feel as if I've stepped into the pages of an Isaac Asimov Foundation series science fiction novel as a character in some sort of strange Asimovian post mortem sequel, for the article has that "Hari Seldon" psycho-historical mathematical "feel" to it. And, in one of those strange "synchronicities", the article arrived from G.B. just as I decided to re-read Asimov's famous Foundation series novels! Perhaps my doing so functioned as an "attractor"... we'll get back to that idea in a moment.

So what has me so exercised? Well, essentially, the article is about one of my favorite topics, the mind-over-matter relationship. But this one's a doozie in the sort of "ghost-in-the-machine" way, if you're really paying attention:

A Beginners Guide to Randonauting

"Randonauting" is the term given to a particular activity in the exploration of randomness:

Randonauts are a community of people who are exploring the use of random number generators to find Blind-Spots and experiment with Mind-Matter interactions.

Needless to say, when I read that, I was hooked, and read on to a paragraph that G.B. had highlighted in the email sharing the article, and reading it in context, I can see why:

A Randonaut is a person who explores both the application and impact of randomness in the experience of everyday reality. This exploration into randomness can be carried out in several different ways. The two primary experiments that Randonauts are currently exploring are Blind-Spots and Mind-Matter interactions.


Mind-Matter Interactions

Mind-Matter interactions encompass the other side of Randonauting. This is the idea that the human mind actually has a statistically significant impact on the output of quantum random number generators (qRNG). The Fatum Bot can generate what are called Intention Driven Anomalies (IDA’s) which are coordinate locations that are calculated based on the density of qRNG output and which are often explored through the use of intention. What this potentially means is that your mind can have some influence on the location and subsequent experience that’s generated by the bot. There are two kinds of IDA’s that can be generated: Attractors and Voids. The difference between the two is the way in which they’re mathematically determined. They are essentially opposites of each other, but are both hypothesized to be influenced by the mind.

Now, regular readers here, or members of my website or readers of my books, in particular, Microcosm and Medium, are familiar with my fascination for the work of University of California materials science professor, Dr. William Tiller. Tiller conducted a rather breathtaking series of experiments to show whether or not the "Observer effect" of quantum mechanics can be extended into the macrocosmic world to affect large scale physical systems in a quantizable, measurable fashion through the sheer intention to do so alone. I won't go into all the details here, save to mention that the two physical systems he tested were (1) the ph levels of water and (2) the gestation period of fruit flies. In both cases, a group of people were given a formally specified (i.e., written out) set of intentions that each system would be altered in a specific way, e.g., that the ph level of water would be raised, or lowered, a specific amount, or that the gestation period of fruit flies would be shortened a certain degree. The group was then instructed to meditate or focus its attention on the intention for a few minutes. The intentions themselves were somewhere between the imperative and subjunctive moods, that is to say, somewhere between a command (magic) and a request (prayer). The results were astonishing, and the physical systems were altered in the manner sought.

The experiments raise all sorts of questions: (1) is the effect magnified by the number of people involved? (2) Is the effect magnified by how long a period of time said intentions are "concentrated upon"? (I suspect, yes, for long and involved liturgical-textual reasons.) (3) Is the effect magnified or damped depending on the virtue (or lack thereof) of the individuals comprising the group? (Again, I suspect yes: "the prayer of a righteous man availeth much" and that sort of thing.)

But what caught my attention about that last paragraph cited about were the "mathematical", i.e., specifically topological, references. "Attractors" or as they are sometimes called "basins of attraction" as well as their opposites, "voids" or "'mounds' of repulsion" are well-known constructs in topology. If you want a way to "imagine" these types of things, think of them as specific geometries in any number of spatial dimensions. For example, a basin of attraction could be represented by a bowling ball or other heavy object placed on a trampoline. The bowling ball or object is three-dimensional, sitting on a (more or less) two dimensional surface. The indentation in the surface caused by the object is the "basin", which is easily demonstrable as an "attractor" if one rolls a golf ball toward the indentation. Roll it just  right, and the golf ball will be "attracted" into the basin. More than just gravity is at work here; it's also the geometry of that indentation that's at work, which is why Einstein's General Relativity modeled gravity as a geometry.

Now, here's the trick: imagine that "basin" idea as being able to be expressed in more than just two dimensions. That's exactly what topology does with such geometries: it seeks to get to the essential mathematical  description of the geometry itself, which will carry over into as many dimensions as one wished. In fact, this is exactly what Einstein does with General Relativity, for he imagines his "bowling ball" to be sitting on top of a virtually infinite number of such two dimenional surfaces, all at discreet angles from one another, as if we're looking at a trampolene underneath the bowling ball, another "upside down" but still indented, and yet another to the side and it's indented, and so on.

This brings us back to the article, and to that last paragraph cited above, for it's implying a whopper-doozie: it's implying that those topological (n-dimensional geometric) constructs can be altered or modified (and perhaps even brought into and out of existence) by intention alone. Intention becomes the bowling ball in our bowling ball analogy. And that, folks, to put it country simple, is cosmic in its implications. (And for those really paying attention, it may mean there's a consciousness-intention component to kontrabary and the technologies thereof.) The only problem, of course, is to develop an adequate mathematics of all this, and with that, we're back to Isaac Asimov, the Foundation novels, and his character Hari Seldon, inventor of said mathematics. And since we're talking about specific topological constructs, my suspicion has always been that any such mathematical language will have to incorporate healthy dollops of topology and related mathematical languages. (It is no accident that the psychologist Kurt Lewin wrote a book titled Principles of Topological Psychology!)

So what do I think may be going on here? To put it country simple once again, perhaps the people playing around with this - the "randonauts" - may be innocent in their explorations, but I suspect that we're looking at an experiment in some very, very dangerous things being run by someone else, perhaps in order to obtain the laws of that cosmic power of intentionality.

You know... the Tower of Babel sort of thing...

That's as succinct a warning as I can give to those who might be tempted to be a randonaut...

See you on the flip side...

    Read somewhere that random number generators are not very random in the larger scope of THINGS. guess i said that right.

    • David Taormina on July 18, 2020 at 3:12 pm

      Great Read! Thanks for the Saturday high heat inspiration. Very thought provoking.. immediately what comes to mind after… also I should say my own pondering about the ATTIP situation and listening to Hal Puthoff talk about Bismuth Zinc and Magnesium “meta-materials” from supposed crashes UFO’s.. it can’t be any more important to talk about how Puthoff has been doing these experiments for decades! And now this slow motion roll out of UFO threats.. perhaps even that is being done to have a look at the randomness of consciousness reactions to the whole thing.. after years of research it probably has become their MO. Either way I’d rather take my Q’s from my Favorite Martian, then buy into some post fake disclosure Dictatorship…thanks Joe.m love’ya brotha!

      I carve miniatures with wood, and one day last year I had a sudden thought: I REALLY NEED A MAGNIFYING GLASS. The type Sherlock Holmes uses. I used all caps because it was a very strong thought, almost a Eureka-moment. I may have even said it aloud, it was that strong an impression. Following work that evening or perhaps the evening after, there was an empty office-paper box in the elevator of my apartment building. Looking inside, there were lunch remnants of napkins and empty condiment packets. There was also a small, flat box, with the image of a magnifying glass on it, and “magnifying glass” on the side. Needless to say, I didn’t touch it!

    It makes one wonder if some sort of dilemma has been reached. “To be, or not to be,” sort of dilemma. As if pondering the notion of choosing “Data” or “Lore” of a not so distant fiction. . . This has artificial intelligence suggested all through it. Almost as if an impediment reached with present algorithms that one of a random orientation seems missing. Life is very creative because of it seemingly already incorporated into our very Being yet just out of reach to tease the Tantalus in each experimenter.

  8. Jo S. on July 8, 2020 at 11:56 pm

    There is buzz about the 4th industrial revolution. There are forces who want to control, manage, and “own” this power of consciousness. Beware those who would enslave the mind, thoughts and intentions.

    • Laura on July 29, 2020 at 2:55 pm

      I really like this Giza subject. For me, so many ways to go.

      In reply to Jo: I am not convinced that there is a knowing orchestration of consciousness.  Rather I think that some individuals at the global level lean into a momentum resulting from self interest and the pursuit of power.  Other individuals have intentions which contribute or re-calibrate direction. These actions combine and result in events as well as thought dynamics, the consequences of which can be unpredictable.

  9. marcos toledo on July 8, 2020 at 7:33 pm

  10. GW on July 8, 2020 at 5:36 pm

    Joseph, I am a little bit surprised, that you did not mentioned “The Global Consciousness Project”, which I e-mailed you repeatedly about.
    Because it is kind of the same thing.
    If I remember correctly, G. Fosar and F. Bludorf claimed they experimented with device, capable of giving answers on questions, calling it “space internet”. But reading the answers, I guess only quantum scientist can understand, because it did not make too much sense to me…

  11. Roger on July 8, 2020 at 1:05 pm

    About the curvature of space thing. Imagine a uniform and harmonically balanced background radiation or particle field such as interstellar space between galaxies and to a lesser extent between solar systems and then planetary bodies. Now in order to form a large concentration of mass such as a planet, sun, speck of space dust or any other physical thing you got to concentrate matter from this theoretical medium into a compact singularity. Compacting this medium into a compact singularity creates a vacuum of space in this medium around the singularity proportionate to its mass. The vacuum is not completely empty and does have particles and larger objects in it that have created their own lesser vacuum fields in the medium as well. These singularities of differing mass can be viewed as having a more positive charge relative to the medium of the universe. Their vacuum field is negative. But from a flipped perspective the singularity mass is more vacuum negative than the vacuum created around it by its formation. There are still sub-atomic vacuums around individual particles in the singularities mass however. Equilibrium is constantly being sought in the new field medium created by singularities. The lesser gravity or vacuum energy surrounding smaller singularities is expanded in a vacuum but get contracted as they get pulled towards the centers of larger singularity masses in an attempt to increase the vacuum of the singularity. This attempt to create more vacuum inside singularities but results in their vacuum field contraction may be the phenomenon we observe as gravity. Vacuum energy may have a property similar to static electricity when viewed from this perspective.

  12. Roger on July 8, 2020 at 12:07 pm

    I’ve done experiments on this. Discovered I was multi-dimensional. But the more potential you let in the more potential you will have to experience and deal with. Make sure you are ready for it and are not a negative and fearful personality type because then your new potential experience may resonate in that direction. But if it scares you and starts to take you somewhere you rather not go, you can let it go and fall back down in consciousness near where you left off. There are rumors that masters of reality have happened through out human history and may be happening with some today. But once you vibrate and resonate on a higher plane of consciousness you begin interacting with an alternative universe with alternative versions of everybody and everything you know I suspect. Mastering reality may not be all that great a thing because then what is the point of anything? And you will become completely bored with everything because achievements will become effortless and meaningless. You may soon long for forgetfulness and rebirth into the illusion of random entropy. The grass is not always greener on the other side.

    Well I’m pissed off!
    I had written a critique of AI and “got proofed”!
    Seems I still doubt the devil’s existence; and it persists in making its presence known[to me].
    So memory suspect:
    I opened w/my perspective on randomness; saying I preferred to use spontaneity as a tool in my approach to deep investigations. That an AI generated randomness was an oxymoron. Now i’m more than ever viewing a random generator w/extreme prejudice.
    Oh, and in my spontaneous lead in to this subject; which AI obliterated; I referred to the illustrious Bugs Bunny’s quote on mapping out this subject matter, “I KNEW I shoulda made dat left toin at Albakoikie”.

  14. Robert Barricklow on July 8, 2020 at 11:53 am

    Although this “random generator” has been around and used for sometime; it’s now on the media radar. That’s not do to some random generator, that’s due to a purposed narrator.
    So. now I’m intrigued to where this narration leads; or, does not lead.
    Oh, I’d be remiss not to include a Looney Tunes version of this mapped direction: Bugs Bunny’s, “I KNEW I should made dat left toin at Albakoikie”.
    First, I use spontaneity as a tool in my approach to ferreting out something I’m deeply questioning. So right of the bat I’m view a computer generated randomnous w/

    • Robert Barricklow on July 8, 2020 at 12:14 pm

      Well what do you know!
      A “before and after proof”/
      Is it spontaneous; and/or, a random generator/
      Seems I’ve called on both to battle it out in this rabbit hole of quantum probabilities.
      Appropriately I’m in the “Mind-Matter Interactions” tunnel.
      I’m already late….

    • Robert Barricklow on July 8, 2020 at 5:26 pm

      It’s one thing to blueprint a concept;
      it’s another to make it “real”. Also, consciousness is key; meaning living.

      Yes, “they’re” playing w/fire.
      Usually the collateral damage crowd pays the fair; getting burned in the corporate process,
      “they” term: progre$$.

        Recent case in point: alchemizing covid1984 into an economic warfare cash/powered cow; that needs only to be kicked awake to produce, again & again. A permanent sickness, that symbolizes perfectly the mental state of those who blueprinted it: the elitist, global leadership, insane asylum.
        But fires can get out of, even a puppet master’s control; especially cosmic ones.
        Or, is that cosmic ons & offs?
        Or, cosmic 1 & a 3.

  16. jplatt39 on July 8, 2020 at 9:04 am

    I did a ctl-F (find)datasearch for a prefix in both the article and your commentary: “pseudo”. Yes I know computers have gotten very sophisticated but most “random” number strings on computers remain pseudorandom. That limits the dataset these people are working with. Enough to skew the results? Very likely. This is dreamwork.

    You don’t need to believe in a totally deterministic universe to believe these guys are in a deterministic pocket of it

    The only danger I see is that so brilliantly limned by Gordie Dickson in “Computers Don’t Argue”, where we place our trust in crude algorithms which will kill someone before it will let him contest a traffic ticket. Gates et. al. are doing this every day.

    The Tower of Babel reference, incidentally, reminds me of a frustration: Lulu says my copy of your book is coming by Federal Express. Fedex hates my building (and others) so much you practically have to be in the lobby buttonholing the deliverymen to avoid a “sorry we missed you” notice.

    This piece makes me wonder if the book its going to irritate me. I hope so, kinda but whether I get mad, agree, disagree or whatever never seem the point of reading you. Thank you for writing.

    (I shall say Janson’s History of Art shows how Notre Dame is a 19th Century reconstruction of the medieval Cathedral – so Macron’s comments don’t seem threatening even if they do seem idiotic).

    • jplatt39 on July 8, 2020 at 3:55 pm

      To be fair the book arrived. I expect to be educated and o.stimulated whether I’m entertained or not. I guess Lulu knows best.

  17. basta on July 8, 2020 at 7:58 am

    All this was pioneered by Prof. Robert Jahn at Princeton, who was dean of the Engineering dept. He met a gambler who had extraordinary “luck” and said that he beat the odds by thinking of the roll he wanted. The gambler proved to Jahn’s satisfaction that he could do what he said and it kicked off PEAR, Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research lab in 1979: http://pearlab.icrl.org/

    Jahn’s work with random number generators and conscious intention was rigorous and quite broad. He proved that all humans have the ability to change future random outcomes by conscious intention, irrespective of proximity, and that the effect is synergistic and stacks when a number of people are focusing at once on one outcome.

    Ultimately, what is says is that the C squared in E=MC2 is in fact consciousness.

    • goshawks on July 8, 2020 at 9:38 pm

      Basta, you beat me to it! Jahn wrote a fascinating book, The Role of Consciousness in the Physical World (1981). I have it, and have read it several times. It is enlightening! (I bought it as a library cast-off; they were ‘exorcising’ it from the book racks!)

      One of the intriguing findings by Jahn was of negative psychics. These folks would ‘warp probability’ to the same extent as positive psychics, but in a way that they would lose – but in a generally-unnoticed manner. At the time, I speculated that these folks were scared of their ability. Perhaps, they had received ‘negative feedback’ for their ability at any early age – or even been burned at the stake or some such in an earlier life. Interesting…

      • Roger on July 9, 2020 at 12:43 am

        Unfortunately I’ve been mostly a negative psychic. Recently been turning it more positive but the whole idea of controlling reality is depressing as hell. Better to leave it up to a wiser, more knowledgeable, and loving God/Universal Consciousness.

        • goshawks on July 9, 2020 at 4:08 am

          Roger, there is a ‘middle ground’. Form-up an idea of your current situation (including emotional aspects), place it in a bubble, and hold it while affirming Best and Highest. After a while, it will suddenly ‘disappear’. That means it has been received, whatever that means. Then, give a brief Thank You and go about your daily business.

          Whatever manifests after that includes ‘aspects’ of which we Down Here have no idea. It can be very surprising…

          (I also recommend including “Pleasure Side, if appropriate” in the initial bubble. Many higher aspects have no idea about pleasure or pain. It is usually best to inform them about your preference…)

      • basta on July 9, 2020 at 10:57 am

        I’d assume the negative psychics are either psycho-/sociopaths or are fundamentally self-loathing, thus the negative results. Essentially it is magic; white magic when you are envisioning something that is fair and just; black when you are trying to take some advantage for yourself. It works most powerfully when you are completing a positive circuit; I suspect entanglement has more than a bit to do with it (and it is in perfect harmony with quantum mechanics and the implications of the double-slit experiment), and I found it is especially powerful if you are offering something fairly that another person seeks, since they are searching for a solution you offer. You shouldn’t be trying to “control reality,” simply reducing entropy where you can and making favorable connections.

        • Roger on July 9, 2020 at 11:28 am

          Thanks Goshawks and Basta. I’m too negative in my view and so of course get that; way beyond what is probable. Stems from extreme childhood abuse being told I was worthless and a failure too often from a very young age. Being negative has become a habit and I need to guard more against it. I don’t do too much on influencing things for the better because I was trying to cast out this potential. If I deny others this power over me I figured I should deny this power for my self and envisioned an impenatratable shield. Things were a little better. Recently I’ve reconsidered this stance and decided to try and attract more positive potentials but I don’t focus enough on doing so. Don’t want to control things just fix the damage I may have done in the past.

          • goshawks on July 10, 2020 at 12:26 am

            Roger, that was very brave to say. Thank you. Our consciousness does not want to ‘hold’ old pain, so brings-forth opportunities to heal. The recognition that something is ‘wrong’ inside is half the battle. (Started out there, myself.) Just keep affirming that you want to heal, and you will get there. It is painful to heal at times, but when it is gone (completed), it is gone forever. You keep the ‘occurrence’, but it is no longer in control…

    • Alex on July 9, 2020 at 6:29 pm

      “Ultimately, what is says is that the C squared in E=MC2 is in fact consciousness”
      Sometimes, the deepest truth are also the simplest.
      Only a conscious being can feel this beauty, and beauty without love would be meaningless.
      The only natural force I recognize in this universe, at least the force from which all others flow. is love.
      Our role as human beings is to remember where we come from and therefore to fulfill (inspire, create, feel) this order.

  18. DanaThomas on July 8, 2020 at 6:27 am

    There are indications regarding these topics in Agrippa’s “Occult Philosophy”. This work has been around 500 years, and re-interpreting the text in the light of what our generation knows can be interesting.
