E. Flowers posted a link to a video publicising this organisation, though it's difficult to find out much about it online:




They are not short of self-confidence, judging by the opening comparison with Albert Einstein.

There is a bit more information in a Facebook post by Diane Powell, which mentions they are preparing "an academic book outlining scientific evidence for a new paradigm that regards consciousness as fundamental":

Does anyone know any more?

I'm sorry, but Dean Radin has lost any credibility he had by sporting that goatee.

If it weren't for the name, I wouldn't have recognized him.

I'm thinking he's trying to toughen up his image so skeptics will stop beating him up.  Smile

And speaking of the universe's deepest mysteries, how can head hair be so brown and facial hair so white?

I am uneasy about studies that test for a phenomenon that has no back story. Is there any prior plausibility for the GCP?

Why is a "backstory" important? 

Sometimes people discover new things that haven't been noticed, or thought of before...

And who cares about "plausibility"? Is really any psi phenomenon very "plausible"?

I think it came out of the earlier PEAR studies on random number generators, which initially had one person trying to influence one RNG. Then they went on to see if an RNG would behave unusually if it were put in a roomful of people meditating or something like that. Then evidently they thought they'd see if the whole population of the world could influence a global network of RNGs.

(By the way, was this comment meant for the thread on the GCP? I really started this thread so that people could discuss Dean Radin's facial hair.)
