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 Historic Shepherdstown and Museum Ghost Expedition 2018 REG experiment ran continuously over two epochs spanning several hours inclusive of direct radio voice (DRV) communication sessions.  

  • The first epoch commenced 7.43 pm on Aug 11 2018 and lasted approximately 4.5 hours. The REG experiment exhibited random walk trending that was mostly above baseline levels.  Overall the REG experiment delivered a medium Z score (0.962) that was statistically significant at the 17% level (in a one tailed test), suggesting higher than chance levels of psi functioning
  • The second epoch commenced 12.27 am on Aug 12 2018 and lasted approximately 2 hours. The REG experiment exhibited random walk trending that was mostly below baseline levels.  Overall the REG experiment delivered a medium Z score (-0.997) that was statistically significant at the 16% level (in a one tailed test), also possibly suggesting higher than chance levels of psi functioning
  • But was that really the case?  The runs appear to be symmetric (mirror images) with respect to the baseline.  However, the difference in valence (direction) might be attributed to declining levels of group participation and engagement.  The maximum number of participants in the communication sessions peaked during the 11pm – 12am time frame. Apart from the investigation team, most visiting participants had departed by 1 am 
  • The experiments suggest it is important to know the underlying dynamics of group engagement in interpreting REG outcomes.  The significant down trending in the second epoch could have been due to a “decline effect” in psi functioning as engagement gradually dwindled down.  This is not a decline effect in the traditional parapsychological sense of a lowering in effect sizes, but moreso a decline in psi functioning arising from lower engagement

These outcomes lend support for indications of implicit psi during the

Historic Shepherdstown and Museum Ghost Expedition 2018.  They appear consistent with REG experiments elsewhere.  A similar type of decline effect may have appeared in the Lexington Market Ghost Expedition in 2017.  The psi functioning is implicit, working on subliminal or unconscious levels. The conscious focus of participants is on the engagement itself

  • 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

The last image is an example of lens flare in infrared light.  The camera is pointed directly at a light source, which in this case is the Microsoft Windows Kinect Structured Light System (SLS).  The SLS emits a grid of infrared laser light, which is also reflecting off the surface of the lens, generating the elliptical shapes

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.

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).

For Brunswick Heritage Museum Ghost Expedition 2017, REG experiment runs were conducted during and after extended direct radio voice (DRV) sessions.  

  • The first run commenced 9:06 pm and ended 10:23 pm on Oct 13 2017. This run generated a random walk trending well below baseline levels.  The run was characterized by a high Z score, statistically significant at the 10% level (in two-tailed tests, suggesting high levels of psi functioning
  • The second run commenced 10:57 pm on Oct 13 and ended 1:26 am on Oct 14 2017. This run generated a random walk generally trending above baseline levels and sharply uptrending in the final stages. The run was characterized by a medium Z score, statistically significant at the 15% level (in two-tailed tests), suggesting medium levels of psi functioning

These outcomes lend support for indications of psi during the Brunswick Heritage Museum Ghost Expedition 2017.  They are consistent with results observed in 2015 REG experiments during DRV sessions.

  • 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).

Random Event Generator (REG) Outcomes in Baltimore County/Dundalk Historic District Ghost Expedition: Support for a Consciousness Bridge?

Graphical displays of Random Event Generator (REG) experiment results captured by Maryland Paranormal Research ® at the Dundalk Patapsco Neck Historical Society and Museum Sep 30 – Oct 1 2017.

The Dundalk Historic District Ghost Expedition was conducted as part of the National Ghost Hunting Day (NGHD) experiment to build a global “consciousness bridge.”  The NGHD event involved synchronized paranormal investigations occurring from 10 pm – 12 am EST with connectivity provided by streaming services and social media.

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.] The random walk is obtained by cumulating the errors (or normalized errors) from each run.
  • REGs also display a parabolic boundary at the 95% confidence level.  Hence experiment runs 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).

National Ghost Hunting Day 2016 utilized the GCP network of REG’s.  A parapsychology researcher used GCP REGs in proximity to NGHD investigation locations and found evidence of a shift in the random walk at occurring near the outset of the NGHD 2016 event.

Similar random walk shifts were found in sequential

Maryland Paranormal Research ®

REG experiments and investigations in 2016 using the Psyleron REG-1 device.  

For 2017,

Maryland Paranormal Research ®

REG experiment runs were conducted prior to the start of NGHD 2017 (before 10:30 pm) and after the NGHD event was underway.

  • The first run (before 10:30 pm) generated a random walk trending above although near baseline levels that was characterized by a low Z score, suggesting low-moderate levels of psi functioning
  • The second run (after 10:30 pm) generated a random walk trending well above baseline levels that was characterized by a higher Z score, suggesting higher/increased levels of psi functioning

These results lend support for the notion that a “consciousness bridge” may have been established during the Dundalk Historic District Ghost Expedition and NGHD 2017 event

  • However, it is  not possible to precisely know the sources of psi functioning (or field effects) on the REG, whether from post-mortem agencies or living agencies (experiment participants and/or experimenters themselves).
