Summer Solstice 2002
The Summer Solstice is an occasion for many rituals and celebrations. I received at least three notes suggesting it would be a good bet for a GCP event. Some were not sufficiently specific for a prediction, but one did give descriptions of a convergence and times for people to give thought and focus to the time. This was in a note that I receive on a regular basis from affinity/infinity, a group that works for a better future via meditations and compassionate self regard.
1. JUNE 21st SUMMER SOLSTICE MEDITATION (13:00 to 14:00 UT/GMT - the exact peak moment for the Solstice is at 13:24 UT/GMT) FOCUS: Connecting With The Source Of Goodness In Us MEDITATION TIMES: June 21st, 2002 San Francisco: 6:00 AM NY: 9:00 AM London: 2:00 PM Rio: 10:00AM Jerusalem: 4:00 PM Tokyo: 10:00 PM COMPLETE MEDITATION INFORMATION: http://www.aei.ca/~cep/June2002SolsticeFocus.htm
Despite the good feeling for this meditation, and the likely engagement of large numbers of people, the data do not show any clear indication of an effect during this period of time. There were 45 eggs running, and the standard analysis showed a chisquare of 3551.7 on 3600 degrees of freedom, for a p-value of 0.714. The cumulative deviation is shown in the next figure. Following that is a graph of the whole day of the 21st, in an exploratory look to see whether there might have been some part of the day with an anomalous trace. Indeed the day does look non-random, with a steady descending trend. Since this is opposite to the prediction of a positive departure, it is not surprising that the hour between 13:00 and 14:00 chosen for the meditation shows the same trend to lower composite deviations
