Global Brain Paint
A picture. Part of the Global Consciousness Project's image of world-wide consciousness for Tuesday 20th January 2009, the US Presidential inauguration day. The Global Consciousness Project collects data from a global network of random event generators involving 65 sites around the world. Computers at these locations run custom software that reads the output of physical random number generators and records a trial once every second. Technical background

The link below leads to an image created from the GCP/EGG data by Bill Scott, using algorithms he developed to show the complex beauty of brain activity. Dynamic images of a person's brain at work are of great value for clinical feedback training. The painting is created from one minute of EGG data, and will change to a new image after 60 seconds.
The actual algorithms are proprietary "ancient Chinese trade secrets" but it seems likely Bill uses nonlinear equations, perhaps fractal generators, with modulation of input parameters by composite Z-scores. About the GCP/EGG data he says,
We're ready to begin global consciousness feedback. The data coming from your servers is very complex and lifelike. I have a server up and running taking a minute of your data and updating an image every minute.
Being that complex systems are infinitely sensitive they ideally lend themselves to feedback of this nature. These images from your data are quite profound!
