Can black boxes called Random Number Generators predict the future? These small machines are in secret places in 41 countries around the world, where they can pick up mass thought and thus predict major events.
The original RNG resides in a small black box in the basement of the library at Edinburg University in Scotland. It’s a small computer, no more sophisticated that the one inside your Palm Pilot, that’s programmed to constantly spew out random numbers. But this box seems to be able to predict the future. It seemed to sense 911 four hours before the first plane crashed into the World Trade Center. In December, it seemed to warn that a natural disaster was on the way, shortly before a deep ocean earthquake triggered the tsunami.
