Fascinating research into a “global mind” picked up startling data in the days and hours before the 9/11 attacks, indicating widespread foreknowledge.
The Global Consciousness Project (GCP) uses electromagnetically-shielded computers located throughout the world that generate random numbers. In its 13-year history, these computers show statistically significant deviations during global events that affect humans.
What GCP found on 9/11 shows foreknowledge for nearly 16 hours before the first plane struck. This data lends support to the proposition that several hundred people around the world had time-specific information about the attacks.
“Roger Nelson has spent the past 30 years looking for evidence of a global mind,” says Morgan Freeman, host of the Science TV series, Through the Wormhole.  Nelson is an experimental psychologist and founder of GCP.
Whether called the “noosphere,” some “morphic field” or “information field,” the global mind is real, believes Nelson, along with many other scientists. Though much weaker than the obvious five, experiments indicate that the “sixth sense” is part of a global communication network that can be indirectly measured.
While the US military has long been involved in psi research, GCP tries to objectively measure interconnected consciousness through scientific means, and freely releases that information to the public. 
Located throughout the world, some 80 stand-alone computers randomly generate ones or zeros for GCP.  These random number event generators (REGs) stop working sometimes.
“The project builds on excellent experiments conducted over the past 35 years at a number of laboratories, demonstrating that human consciousness interacts with random event generators, apparently ‘causing’ them to produce non-random patterns,” GCP says. 
An EGG (ElectroGaiaGraph) studies a REG’s ability (or inability) to generate random data and calculates the range of deviation from randomness. The following graph  shows the cumulative deviation for all the REGs in the GCP network from 9/10 thru 9/12:
The teal “pseudo data” is automatically generated random data to compare to the red actual data. The black and white boxes on the zero line represent the following events:
..8:46 am WTC1 hit
..9:02 am WTC2 hit
..9:37 am Pentagon hit
..9:59 am WTC2 collapses
10:28 am WTC1 collapse
At the time, 37 EGGs produced data for the network.  Notice the bump that starts at about 20 hours GMT on Sept. 10 (4 pm Eastern Daylight Time). That’s when several of the REG computers stopped producing random numbers. Increasing randomness returns (the declining side of the hump) until about 32 hours, or 4:00 am EDT on Sept. 11.
Then, starting at about 4:30 am – over four hours before the first strike on 9/11 – the REGs seriously stopped producing random numbers, creating the spike we see before the North Tower (World Trade Center 1) was hit at 36:46 (8:46 am EDT).
In 2011, GCP founder Roger Nelson told Through the Wormhole that the anomaly is “highly significant,” adding further:
“This is an aberration in the random line… We don’t have an explanation for that.”
However, GCP clarified that “a conservative reading suggests that measure is just marginally significant.” 
In a 2009 speech, Nelson reported that the GCP found the same precognition before large land-based earthquakes (but not for ocean-based ones).  Animals are known to perceive quakes before humans do, and GCP acknowledges that the network “could equally well pick up on the consciousness of animals other than humans. For now we take it to mean that the system detects some sort of global consciousness structure.” 
The GCP network became operational in August 1998. Since then, “the overall statistics for the project indicate odds of about 1-in-20 million that the correlation of our data with global events is merely a chance fluctuation,” reports Nelson. 
In a paper discussing the 9/11 anomaly, Nelson admits:
“We do not have solid grounds to claim that the statistics and graphs demonstrate the existence of a global consciousness. On the other hand, we do have strong evidence of anomalous structure in what should be random data, and clear correspondence of these unexplained departures from expectation with well-defined events that are of special importance to people.” 
But, since computers are electronic devices, couldn’t the high stress on the power grid or high use of cell phones have altered REG outputs?
“Such influences would center on New York and Washington, of course, while the eggs are distributed around the world. Their average distance from New York is more than 4000 miles (6400 km), and the anomalous effects are broadly distributed across the network.”
Also, the research-grade instruments are physically shielded from electromagnetism and include “a logic stage that literally excludes first-order biasing from electromagnetic or other physical causes.”
But then, relating to the anomalous spikes that precede the towers being hit, he adds:
“If ordinary waking consciousness were the source, it would seem it could only be attributable to a small number of people: the terrorists who knew what was coming. Alternatively, the hypothesized ‘global consciousness’ that later would be intensely aware might have had a premonitory cognition or feeling at an unconscious level that was registered in the data from the EGG network.”
Because he believes only “a small number of people” were involved, Nelson repeats the suggestion in Through the Wormhole that global consciousness had an unconscious “premonition” about 9/11.
Hold onto that thought while we look in more detail at what Nelson describes is being measured:
“The best bets are quantum mechanical entanglemant [sic] (operating in a quasi-macroscopic realm) and ‘active information’ a conceptual structure in David Bohm’s physics.” 
David Bohm (1917-1992) distinguished himself from classical quantum physicists with the notion that our universe is guided not only by matter and energy, but also by a “nonlocal active information” field – the idea that on a quantum level, information acts on raw energy to give it form. 
“Quantum entanglement is a state in which quantum particles can alter one another’s properties instantaneously and at a distance, in a way which would not be possible if they were large scale objects obeying the laws of classical as opposed to quantum physics,” explains Quantum Mind, a 2011 book collecting the thoughts of various theorists. 
Erwin Schrödinger coined the term in 1935, saying:
“I would not call [entanglement] one but rather the characteristic trait of quantum mechanics, the one that enforces its entire departure from classical lines of thought.” 
Quantum Mind explains further: “The quantum mind or quantum consciousness hypothesis proposes that classical mechanics cannot fully explain consciousness, and suggests that quantum mechanical phenomena, such as quantum entanglement and superposition, may play an important part in the brain’s function, and could form the basis of an explanation of consciousness.” 
Returning to Nelson:
“My own ‘model’ is that consciousness or mind is the source or seat of a nonlocal, active information field (this is not a standard, well defined physical construct). Such fields interact, usually with random phase relationship and no detectable product. When some or many consciousness (information) fields are driven in common, or for whatever reason become coherent and resonant, they interact in phase, and create a new, highly structured information field… that becomes the source of the effects we measure.” 
It’s even possible that the low 34% occupancy rate for all four planes  reportedly involved in the attack indicates that some people picked up on that information field and avoided buying seats on those planes.
But it wasn’t just a dozen terrorists and their cohorts hiding in Afghan caves who created this structured field. A vast amount of evidence shows that hundreds of people spread all over the world had foreknowledge, comporting with GCP’s anomalous effects being “broadly distributed across the network.”
Rather than premonition, it’s more likely that GCP captured the “highly structured information field” created by foreknowledge among financial, military and political figures, along with the global intelligence community.
Minimum $20 Billion Surge in Insider Trading
In Crossing the Rubicon, Michael Ruppert thoroughly chronicled mainstream news reports of informed trading, making his case against the intelligence community.  Developments since that 2004 book make it worth revisiting some insider trading highlights, especially now in light of GCP data.
In the 90 days preceding the attacks, 38 different stocks  that later fell in value saw massive put options – a financial instrument that allows speculators to bet the stocks will go down, which they can then sell for the original higher price during the contract period (usually four months).
That trading “was not localized,” says Ruppert. “It was, in fact, a worldwide event.” In addition to the US and other nations, 9/11-related insider trading was flagged in Belgium, Cyprus, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Monte Carlo, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, reports 9/11 whistleblower Kevin Ryan. 
An increased trade volume of $15 billion for just two airlines (United and American) and the insurance industry is on top of spiked trading in other sectors, including Treasury bills, where one 5-year bond was purchased for $5 billion.
Over $100 million in credit card transactions moved through computers housed at the towers in the minutes before and during the WTC attack, said Convar, the company hired to retrieve data from damaged computer hard drives recovered from the scene. 
A whistleblower told Ruppert that “about five minutes before the attack, the entire Deutsch Bank computer system had been taken over by something external that no one in the office recognized and every file was downloaded at lightning speed to an unknown location.” 
Many of the companies involved in high volume trading before 9/11 include the same criminal institutions responsible for the global financial collapse a few years later: Bank of America, Citibank, Merrill Lynch, Lehman Bros., Morgan Stanley, Mellon Financial, and Goldman Sachs. 
Just as no one was criminally charged for the Wall Street orchestrated derivatives bubble and falsified documents  leading to millions of foreclosures and global financial collapse, none of the investigations into 9/11-related insider trading resulted in a single indictment.
“Indeed,” said Ruppert, “no one could hope to get away with it unless they controlled all the enforcement mechanisms…”
Despite regulatory corruption, three academic studies statistically link insider trades to 9/11. 
- In 2011, the Multinational Finance Journal published the results of an international collaboration looking at 9/11-related trading in S&P 500’s index options. Those results led researchers “to reject the null hypothesis that there was no abnormal trading in these contracts prior to the September 11 attacks.” The analysts also identified three different trading strategies used to profit from 9/11 foreknowledge.
- In 2010, Swiss researchers analyzed each put option contract on 14 companies traded on the Chicago Board Options Exchange from 1996–2006, and on Swiss Re and Munich Re traded on EUREX from January 1999 to January 2008. “Informed option trades on Swiss Re and Munich Re—the world’s two largest reinsurers—are detected in the days leading up to the terrorist attacks on September 11th.” They also found unusually high trading at Bank of America, Citigroup, J.P. Morgan, Merrill Lynch, American Airlines, United Airlines, Boeing and to a lesser extent Delta Air Lines and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.
- Univ. of Illinois finance professor Allen Poteshman led the pack with his 2006 publication in the Journal of Business, which looked at American Airlines, United Airlines, Standard & Poor’s airline index, and the S&P 500 market index. His study “concludes that there is evidence of unusual option market activity in the days leading up to September 11 that is consistent with investors trading on advance knowledge of the attacks.”
Last September, Dr Hugh McDermott, researcher and senior lecturer in law enforcement at Charles Sturt University’s Australian Graduate School of Policing, characterized the 9/11 Commission Report’s finding of “no evidence that anyone with advance knowledge of the terrorist attacks profited through securities transactions” as “implausible,” saying it overlooked important facts. 
McDermott noted that the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) stated that the financial maneuvers in the days prior to 9/11 constituted “the most important crime of insider trading ever committed.”
In his 2002 international bestseller, 11 Septembre 2001: L’Effroyable Imposture, Thierry Meyssan reports that IOSCO, as coordinator for international investigations into 9/11 insider trading, made that statement at an Oct. 15, 2001 “video conference where the national authorities presented their interim reports.” 
Not a single indictment followed IOSCO’s pronouncement.
Ruppert warns that 9/11 insider trading leads “right to the heart of the US intelligence community,” by showing the revolving door and financial connections between Wall Street and the CIA, and further implicates the global intelligence network.
- Russian, French, and German intelligence agencies all sent warnings to the US that al Qaeda intended to hit the towers with planes the week of Sept. 9, 2011, detailed Ruppert with credible sources.
- In Extreme Prejudice, CIA whistleblower Susan Lindauer reported that US intelligence knew of the pending attack at least as early as April 2001. In August, her handler warned her not to travel to Manhattan because an attack was imminent. 
- Israeli Mossad agents tracked alleged hijacker, Mohammed Atta, to Hollywood, Florida, informing the CIA of his activities. The CIA deported the agents and left Atta alone, reported Der Spiegel in 2002. 
Along with the Bush Administration, the CIA, FBI and other US intelligence agencies all denied foreknowledge.
Andreas von Bülow scoffed at this denial in a 2002 interview with Tagesspiegel. He knows of what he speaks, having served on the Cabinet of Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, as State Secretary in the Defense Ministry, and for 25 years as a parliamentarian with oversight of Germany’s Secret Service. The trail left by the terrorists in planning the entire operation was as big as the “tracks of a stampeding herd of elephants,” he said, adding:
“In the week before the attack, the amount of sales in securities trading in American Airlines, United Airlines, and insurance companies increased 1,200%. It was about $15 billion. Some people must have known something. Who?” 
“The trades could only have been made by people high enough in the US, Israeli, and European intelligence communities (including Russia) … There is no other explanation that encompasses all of the known data, and takes notice of the incredible veil of secrecy that has fallen over the issue. Evidently, almost all of the foreign intelligence services that had penetrated al Qaeda ultimately realized that the US government was going to facilitate the attacks. That knowledge migrated to certain investors who promptly capitalized on it.” 
If GCP’s computers do capture a coalescing of human consciousness, so that the information field becomes highly structured and measurable, this broad and deep spread of financial activity helps explain the anomalous pre-strike spikes that GCP measured “broadly across the network.”
Though the anomalous spikes are distributed across the network, the EGGs in the eastern US showed the highest deviation from random, seen below as the thin red line. 
Of note, deviations in the rest of the US (pink and yellow lines) are smaller than that shown in the blue group (Brazil, India and Israel), which had the second largest contribution to the variance measure.
In addition to the unknown numbers of people who engaged in 9/11-related financial transactions around the globe, when we look inside the US, we find indication that several key groups of people received advanced warning of what would unfold on 9/11:
- Newsweek reported that on Sept. 10, “a group of top Pentagon officials suddenly canceled travel plans for the next morning, apparently because of security concerns.” 
- San Francisco mayor Willie Brown was warned the day before not to fly on 9/11. 
- After 50 years of being centered in NYC, Zim Israel-American shipping company broke its lease a week before 9/11 and moved to Norfolk, Virginia. 
- Employees of Odigo, an instant message network headquartered in NYC, received a specific warning about the attacks, two hours before the first plane strike. 
This last example has some interesting connections. Two firms connected to US and Israeli intelligence, Comverse InfoSys and Lazard Technology Partners, along with another venture capital group, purchased a $15 million stake in Odigo in January 2001. 
- Israeli-owned Comverse held “multiple contracts to handle sensitive wiretap operations for government agencies,” reported Ruppert, “and FOX [News] reported that the Comverse systems included a ‘back door’ for outside parties with access to it to overhear monitored conversations.”
- Lazard was heavily invested in Amdocs , another Israeli-owned firm which Ruppert describes as handling “almost all telephone billing records in the United States and thus was in a position to provide invaluable intelligence information about who was being called from what phones anywhere in the country.”
The $15 million stake gave Comverse and Lazard “access to Odigo’s operations, accounting and technologies,” explains Ruppert. (A few months after the attacks, Comverse changed its name to Verint. )
The message was received at 1:30 pm Israel Standard Time (6:30 am EDT) at Odigo’s Herzliyya, Israel office , though the firm was headquartered just blocks from the World Trade Center.  While the exact contents were not revealed to the press, it was specific enough that CEO Micha Macover wondered if the “joking” sender had “accidentally got it right.”
Rather than being a coincidental joke, or a message sent to warn innocents, Ruppert believes the Odigo message “signaled the exact day” to intelligence operatives who would have forwarded it accordingly.  Given Odigo’s connections to the intelligence community, this explanation makes the most sense.
Zim’s move is also interesting in that it made the decision in April 2001, by which time US intelligence was well aware of the plot to strike the towers later that year. Just two weeks prior, on March 19, Dick Cheney’s secretive National Energy Policy Development Group had completed its preliminary assessment of world energy sources, determining how much oil was located where. 
It is as a result of that report’s conclusions, Ruppert believes, that “an irrevocable decision had been made to cross the Rubicon.” With Iraq as the target, holding more oil than any other nation after Saudi Arabia, those in power were going to need a Pearl Harbor type event that would have the American people screaming for war. 
Now well underway, few would dispute that Zbigniew Brzezinski’s “Long War” planned for the Middle East and Central Asia aims at controlling the region’s oil and gas reserves  (among other resources ). “More than 60 percent of the world’s oil and natural gas reserves lie in Muslim lands,” writes Michel Chossudovsky in Towards a World War III Scenario. But the US “possesses less than two percent of global oil and gas reserves.” 
Whatever the exact toll of those who were forewarned, the number contributed to the quantum information field becoming structured enough to cause the anomalous spike in GCP data in the hours preceding the attack.
Other Indications of Foreknowledge
It’s impossible to ignore the absolute lack of response by the world’s most technologically advanced military to attacks that even targeted the Pentagon a full 50 minutes after the first strike. This evidences, at the very least, a stand-down order. 
Given that on Sept. 10, “a group of top Pentagon officials suddenly canceled travel plans for the next morning,”  we can reasonably speculate that more than Dick Cheney was involved in the stand-down order.
However, Ruppert believes the real smoking gun is the War Game exercises that took place on 9/11, including two that involved hijacked airplanes. More effective than a stand-down order, which aggressive pilots trained to take action might ignore, War Games would stay their trigger finger. In this way, the aerial attacks could proceed unhampered. 
Within five minutes of the Pentagon being hit, reports David Ray Griffin, the video surveillance tapes at a gas station across the street (which captured the Pentagon strike) were confiscated by FBI agents. That’s pretty fast work, prioritizing evidence seizure over rescue efforts. Because that surveillance video has never been released to the public, FBI behavior looks more like cover-up than police work. 
Another chunk evidencing advance knowledge is that three buildings were brought down in an obvious controlled demolition, which officials absurdly deny. We’ve all watched the two 110-story steel and concrete buildings burst into powder, as the 1,300+ foot towers completely collapsed within seconds. Experts explain that the level of planning and preparation needed to expertly demolish a building takes months  and a cadre of workers with inside access. 
If the Global Mind Has a Voice, GCP Has Ears
The collective consciousness of all of those with foreknowledge can easily explain how GCP’s measured information field became highly structured, producing the anomalous spikes seen in the hours and minutes before the first strike.
In the first graph above, we looked at the initial hump in GCP data from 4 pm Sept. 10 ’till 4 am Sept 11. Now we’ll zoom in on the first 20 hours of 9/11. Note that a different formula was used to measure deviation than in GCP’s first graph.  Three pre-strike spikes indicate a rapidly growing number of REGs that had stopped producing random numbers:
- From about 5:15 to 6:10 am, we see a nearly vertical spike in anomalous data, highlighted by the blue vertical lines I added to GCP’s graph. It’s reasonable to speculate that this is the time frame when the conspirators and the forewarned began making final preparations.
- We see another spike in GCP data in the 7 o’clock hour, indicated by the added gold verticals. This might be the Odigo warning making its way from Israel to the US intelligence community.
- In the minutes just before the first plane hit, when over $100 million in credit card transactions rushed through computers housed in the towers, when Deutsch Bank’s computer system was electronically seized and its files downloaded “at lightning speed,” we see a third spike (purple vertical).
GCP’s network captured these behaviors by tracking and recording changes to the “active information field” it has measured every second of every day for the past 13 years.
In Nelson’s parlance, vast foreknowledge, which is “the source of the effects” GCP measured, caused the “information field” to “become coherent and resonant” which then began to “interact in phase” thus creating “a new, highly structured information field.”
Roger Nelson may not know it, but the Global Consciousness Project’s nifty network likely recorded the extent of 9/11 foreknowledge.
“It’s huge – what is happening,” said Sofia Smallstorm a few years ago at a screening of her excellent film, 9/11 Mysteries.  “We can only really guess at the nature of, one could say, the minds or the consciousness at the very top.”
Whatever that nature, they apparently did not know that their foreknowledge was having a psychokinetic effect on computers all over the world, which effect was being recorded.
Just as the academic studies statistically showing 9/11-related insider trading do not constitute legal proof, GCP’s data showing widely spread foreknowledge also constitutes only circumstantial evidence. But, added to all the evidence the public has gathered, these additional pieces both contribute to the more reasonable theory that hundreds of people had advance knowledge of the horrific events about to unfold on September 11, 2001.

 Ruppert (2004), p. 574. Note: Ruppert mistakenly believes the NEPDG’s first report was issued in “late April,” but the GAO confirms it was issued on March 19, 2001. Despite the timing discrepancy, it is the release of this report which prompts his “cross the Rubicon” quote.
