Fire the Grid Revisited
While it is impossible to determine how many people participated in the Fire the Grid project, by all accounts at least several thousand people did so. What did we accomplish?
The Global Consciousness Project watches random event generators for fluctuations and has found compelling evidence that anomalies in randomness correlate to mass societal events. Their study of the Fire the Grid project, showing a notable "spike" of positivity during the F.T.G. time frame, offers a tantalizing suggestion of the power of the event, although the Global Consciousness Project says they "do not believe it is appropriate to interpret single events even though it is tempting to do so when the 'picture' looks good."
Interestingly, I have read several accounts from participants who only lasted half an hour. The sharp dip in the graph seems to suggest that this had an effect.
On a personal note, I found the graph of the Fire the Grid hour surprisingly similar to my own level of involvement. While it was initially difficult to settle into the meditation (perhaps because it began at 4:11 am here), I felt "carried away" roughly fifteen minutes in, struggled halfway through, and ultimately experienced what I felt was a "reward" of visual imagery near the end of the hour.
Whether you participated or were only aware of the project occurring, what was your experience?
