Fascinating research into a “global mind” picked up startling data in the days and hours before the 9/11 attacks, indicating widespread foreknowledge.
The Global Consciousness Project (GCP) uses electromagnetically-shielded computers located throughout the world that generate random numbers. In its 13-year history, these computers show statistically significant deviations during global events that affect humans.
What GCP found on 9/11 shows foreknowledge for nearly 16 hours before the first plane struck. This data lends support to the proposition that several hundred people around the world had time-specific information about the attacks.
“Roger Nelson has spent the past 30 years looking for evidence of a global mind,” says Morgan Freeman, host of the Science TV series, Through the Wormhole.  Nelson is an experimental psychologist and founder of GCP.
Whether called the “noosphere,” some “morphic field” or “information field,” the global mind is real, believes Nelson, along with many other scientists. Though much weaker than the obvious five, experiments indicate that the “sixth sense” is part of a global communication network that can be indirectly measured.
While the US military has long been involved in psi research, GCP tries to objectively measure interconnected consciousness through scientific means, and freely releases that information to the public. 
Located throughout the world, some 80 stand-alone computers randomly generate ones or zeros for GCP.  These random number event generators (REGs) stop working sometimes.
“The project builds on excellent experiments conducted over the past 35 years at a number of laboratories, demonstrating that human consciousness interacts with random event generators, apparently ‘causing’ them to produce non-random patterns,” GCP says. 
An EGG (ElectroGaiaGraph) studies a REG’s ability (or inability) to generate random data and calculates the range of deviation from randomness. The following graph  shows the cumulative deviation for all the REGs in the GCP network from 9/10 thru 9/12:
The teal “pseudo data” is automatically generated random data to compare to the red actual data. The black and white boxes on the zero line represent the following events:
..8:46 am WTC1 hit
..9:02 am WTC2 hit
..9:37 am Pentagon hit
..9:59 am WTC2 collapses
10:28 am WTC1 collapse
At the time, 37 EGGs produced data for the network.  Notice the bump that starts at about 20 hours GMT on Sept. 10 (4 pm Eastern Daylight Time). That’s when several of the REG computers stopped producing random numbers. Increasing randomness returns (the declining side of the hump) until about 32 hours, or 4:00 am EDT on Sept. 11.
Then, starting at about 4:30 am – over four hours before the first strike on 9/11 – the REGs seriously stopped producing random numbers, creating the spike we see before the North Tower (World Trade Center 1) was hit at 36:46 (8:46 am EDT).
In 2011, GCP founder Roger Nelson told Through the Wormhole that the anomaly is “highly significant,” adding further:
“This is an aberration in the random line… We don’t have an explanation for that.”
However, GCP clarified that “a conservative reading suggests that measure is just marginally significant.”
