Various groups have urged a gathering of intention in mid-July 2010 for a "conscious convergence" that will help move the planet to a more mindful future. A major source for this idea is the Mayan calendar and the indications that there will soon be a major shift in consciousness. The most articulate interpreter of this material is Carl Johan Calleman:
The idea behind the Conscious Convergence, July 17-18, 2010, is thus to create a powerful intention to do so. There is in fact one thing that is always in our power to do -- and in the power of all human beings to do -- and this is to intend to create and manifest unity consciousness. As the student of the law of attraction will know, all manifestation begins with an intention and without an intention there is no result.
The Conscious Convergence -- A Wave of Unity is thus for all those who intend to manifest unity consciousness. (It may be important to point out that it is not about intending any shift of consciousness, but one to unity consciousness). It is for those who authentically will say: "I intend to manifest unity consciousness." Whatever you believe in, whatever worldview you have, it is still in your power to intend such a shift for yourself and others.
The GCP event was set for the full 24 hours (UTC) of the 17th of July. This constitutes a kind of "sample" of the time period referred to imprecisely as July 17-18. The result is Chisquare 86585.385 on 86400 df, for p = 0.327 and Z = 0.447.
It is important to keep in mind that we have only a tiny statistical effect, so that it is always hard to distinguish signal from noise. This means that every "success" might be largely driven by chance, and every "null" might include a real signal overwhelmed by noise. In the long run, a real effect can be identified only by patiently accumulating replications of similar analyses.
