It seems we can detect energy and we are all connected according to this article

When experimental results deviate markedly from expectations, something's wrong. It could be ...
a) your data is invalid (ie not collected in a proper manner)
b) your premises are wrong (ie you're looking for the wrong thing)
c) your interpretation of the data is wrong (ie you have a wish list)
d) your data is plain wrong.
e) your theory's wrong.
All of those things must be considered before coming up with interpretations from the Outer Limits. Statements like “I think the data are pretty much indisputably in support of that we do interconnect ..." sort of give the game away. "I think ... pretty much ... indisputably ... in support of" is such a nebulous collection of giveaway statements that the conclusions drawn are immediately suspect.

Erm - no proof of anything, much less a soul - and the one mention from NASA was a rebuttal to the highly suspect theory that was suggested.

This crap story was debunked back in 2002. It is a parapsychology experiment by one bloke called Roger Nelson, called the Global Consciousness Project
http://noosphere.princeton.edu/

The Global Consciousness Project (GCP, also called the EGG Project) is a parapsychology experiment begun in 1998 as an attempt to detect possible interactions of "global consciousness" with physical systems. The project monitors a geographically distributed network of hardware random number generators in a bid to identify anomalous outputs that correlate with widespread emotional responses to sets of world events
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Co ... ss_Project


Here is just one debunk
http://www.skepticnews.com/2005/04/terry_schiavo_a.html

In essence, the random number generators are meant to stop being random, when there is an important world event because everyone is thinking about the same thing. There is no working hypothesis but simply data that the random numbers stop being random.

The experiment failed because there were really big world events where the random number generators continued to remain random, yet other times when insignificant events correlated with the random number generators not being random. Then Roger Nelson was unable to "lock down" what his parameters for random and non random results were.

Isn’t it amazing how universal physical laws seem care so much more about what happens in the U.S.A. than anywhere else in the world...

It's the only place UFOs ever land. I guess that makes it special.

I chanced to find the following description of a recent "sighting" in a city near me.
Hovering flashing red and blue lights remaining in the sky over 1 hr now. extremely slow moving.
Bets that it was police cruiser lights reflecting off moving clouds? I'm guessing a drug raid, since this city straddles the "pipeline" that is Route 91, and drug raids are fairly common.
