dragonchild: sidcart42: This research is based on actual evidence that the collective consciousness of the internet has responded in peculiar ways prior to major world events.What, exactly, is the rationale? The same Internet gave "Gangnam Style" over 1 billion hits. Now, I rode that wave of pop culture as much as anyone else, so it's not like a humorous music video getting lots of attention strikes me as a collapse of modern culture. My point is, if this sort of research involves any level of filtering out the noise, you're essentially tossing the "collective consciousness of the Internet" itself.
