Random Event Generator (REG) Outcomes in Baltimore City/Lexington Market Underground Ghost Expedition 2017: Evidence of a Consciousness Bridge?
Graphical display of Random Event Generator (REG) experiment results captured by Maryland Paranormal Research ® at the Lexington Market Underground
Random Event Generators (REGs) are statistical devices commonly employed in parapsychology to test mind-matter interactions, specifically microscopic psychokinesis (micro-pk) activity.
- REGs generate a random walk from a sequence of 200-bit trials per second of binary [0,1] events. [The device flips a coin 200 times per second.]
- A simple random walk is obtained by cumulating the errors (or normalized errors) from each run. For some purposes, it is convenient to compute the cumulative error squared
- REGs also display a parabolic boundary at the 95% confidence level. Hence random walks have a 1 in 20 chance of ending outside parabola bounds
At Princeton University, REGs were used to study global consciousness fields as part of the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) program spanning nearly three decades. This global network of REGs is now managed by the Global Consciousness Project (GCP).
The Lexington Market Underground Ghost Expedition 2017 REG experiment ran continuously for nearly four hours inclusive of audio and direct radio voice (DRV) communication sessions.
- The overall run commenced 3:21 pm and ended 7:19 pm on Oct 8, 2017. The REG experiment exhibited random walk trending that was almost entirely below baseline levels. Overall the REG experiment delivered a medium Z score (-0.636) that was statistically significant at the 26% level (in a one tailed test), indicating on balance higher than chance levels of psi functioning
- However, there was a outdoor festival type event that had occurred in the early evening hours adjacent to the Lexington Market Underground. Communication efforts were ended due to the volume of external music and crowd noise and the echo-chamber acoustics in the underground. Interestingly, the effects of disengagement may be seen in uptrending in the REG toward baseline continuing through the close of the expedition
- Before the festival event there had been sustained trending well below baseline for nearly a three hour period. The lowest Z score (-2.430) during this interval was statistically significant below the 1% level (in a one tailed test). This would seem to indicate that psi-functioning was strongly beyond chance before the break-off in engagement
These outcomes lend support for indications of implicit psi during the Lexington Market Underground Ghost Expedition 2017. They are consistent with REG results such as in the Dundalk and Brunswick ghost expeditions conducted subsequent to the Lexington Market Underground.
- It is not possible to precisely know the sources of psi functioning (or field effects) on the REG, whether it is from post-mortem or living agencies (e.g. experiment participants and/or experimenters themselves).
- REG results in isolation can’t provide evidence of a haunting. A haunting involves recurring activity experienced in varied physical forms seemingly sourced to post-mortem agencies, appearing to have an affinity for a location or parts of a location
- Instead REG results may be conservatively interpreted as a consciousness bridge that at least bears close relation to efforts to communicate with post-mortem agencies, the attention given to that communication, and perhaps from the communications themselves
- The outcomes seen here are not unlike those encountered when REGs are positioned near sporting events, where implicit psi from crowd engagement and attention appears to drive REG trending
