Disney Count support may be spotty from here. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Shortly around 9/11, random number generators worldwide

were slightly disturbed.  On 9/11 the RNGs were disturbed during, after as well as shortly BEFORE the event.

In fact, the researchers detected disturbances surrounding numerous events with mass interest.

It sounds like conspiracy theory crackpot Horrorwitz shit, but the project's hosted by Princeton, as in the University, and operated by an international team of scientists.

There are no good, non-paranormal explanations at present other than a basic criticism that "you can use statistics to prove anything!"

Reposting because my last post required a lot more reading to get to the "oh-shit!" factor.

But what do the generators work off of?

What is the definition of disturbed?

hardware random number generators often use thermic noise or other quantum effects.

If the rumors that micro-nukes have been used in the WTC are true, then conceivably, the EMP might have interfered with those devices.

It was the thundering hooves of the Unicorn stampede used to take the towers down that disturbed the random number generators.

I think he's saying that people were distracted by the events of 9-11 to where they were pulled off their regular duties of keeping our reality stable.

Because reality is what the large concentrated amount of intelligence on the planet says it is.

I pulled this from the discussion page of your link:

"I did not find any information on your site that considers or investigates other explanations for this phenomenon, nor did I find any information that investigates the anomalies that are not somewhere near a major event, nor did I find any informations that would make it plausible that a random generator is in fact an antenne for consciousness, nor did I find any information about the verification and stamping of your EGGS, nor did I find any information about the trustworthiness of your partners where you place your EGGS, nor did I find any information about your efforts to see if you might be wrong. I could go on, but pseudoscience is written all over your organisation. Kind regards, Jan Arkesteijn (talk) 18:44, 20 December 2008 (UTC)"

Yeah, I was hoping someone had already done the work to debunk/vet this for me.

All of the data is available for download if anyone is better at statistics than I am.

I'm sticking with my unicorn stampede theory.  As plausible as anything that doesn't involve pissed off Arabs on planes.

Even nice hardware based RNGs that use electrical noise and stuff like that for entropy would presumably be affected if thousands of people on the same power line suddenly started turning on their tv's and radios, not to mention any sort of interference from using cellphones etc.

I have no doubt RNGs would have been affected. None.

But I also have no doubt that the effect would be exactly the same when a similar scale event took place.

Just my gut feeling with a bit of science reasoning...
