I found this too amusing to ignore. Two peace activists have taken it upon themselves to initiate the Global Orgasm Project, scheduled for Dec 22 (Winter Solstice). Their hope is to focus, world-wide, positive energy and hopes for peace enhanced by the power orgasm.
What is most interesting to me is that they mention specifically the Global Consciousness Project at Princeton as an inspiration and basis scientifically for the project. If you’re unfamiliar with this research project, they describe their goal as being “to examine subltle correlations that appear to reflect the presence and activity of consciousness in the world” through scientifically “demonstrating that human consciousness interacts with random event generators (REGs), apparently “causing” them to produce non-random patterns.”
Their blog linked to this article in the San Francisco Chronicle which says some more about who the two originators of the project are. Sounds a bit nutty perhaps, or maybe even (Say it!) ballsy (tee hee!).
