What Is a Random Event Generator (REG)?
SyncTXT works using random event generator (REG) devices.
The random event generator is a device
that measures nanoscopic physical phenomena, and converts them into a digital
output. According to prevailing theories in quantum mechanics, these outputs are
fundamentally random and follow an expected statistical distribution.
However, researchers have identified fascinating non-random behaviors in REG output.
Researchers at the Princeton Engineering
Anomalies Research (PEAR) laboratory at Princeton University, and elsewhere,
have found that the human mind is capable of influencing the output of the REG
and altering its statistical distribution. Their conclusion was that a subtle
yet direct connection exists between the mind and the physical world.
In 28 years of research, the PEAR laboratory scientists established
that the mind can influence the output of the REG, and that
this can happen even when the REG and the individual are distantly separated.
The Technological Side of SyncTXT
How SyncTXT Uses REGs to Send Messages to your Mobile Phone
- When a user signs up for SyncTXT, data from a remote REG device is assigned to the user and runs at all times.
- When certain low-probability events are created by the random event generator, the system selects a message from the user's customized message pool or selected message set. Under normal conditions (e.g. without an effect due to the operator's mind) this process would lead to randomly selected messages with random timing.
- The message is sent to the user's mobile phone and/or email inbox. It is also stored in our database, along with details related to the message (including the date and time it was received, and where it was delivered).
- Over the long term, Psyleron conducts ongoing research and looks for patterns in user's alerts (while respecting the privacy of users' messages) and seeks to better understand the phenomena.
The Human Side of SyncTXT
- User creates an account and enters a mobile phone number and/or email address. The SyncTXT service costs $6.49 USD per month after any free trial periods, and can be easily canceled at any time.
- The user enters a list of up to 64 messages, which can be changed or updated at anytime, or chooses from an array of pre-written SyncTXT Message Sets, each of which contains hundreds of messages. The messages should have personal meaning and relevance to the user.
- The user may define daily periods of time during which he or she does not wish to receive messages (for example, while sleeping).
- While going about daily life, the user will typically receive messages between 1 and 7 times per day. Messages are timed and selected based on the REG output.
- The message may seem to be entirely random, or may occur at extremely meaningful and relevant times (a "synchronicity") that have a profound impact on the user. The ratio of "relevant" to "irrelevant" messages seems to depend heavily on a number of factors such as intention, state of mind, and experience with the system. See below for more details.
- The user can then use the web portal to make notes about the messages, view their prior message history, and share the alerts and stories with other users, to compare experiences.
This section is intended to provide users with a better idea of what SyncTXT is like, and what we've learned about it so far.
But before we go on...
SyncTXT is not for everyone. For most users, the usefulness of SyncTXT depends on the user's intention and state of mind. SyncTXT is not a kind of passive mind-reading technology, nor is it a deterministic system that works every time. Therefore, if you are absolutely certain that this system cannot work or are signing up simply to prove that it is nonsense (which is apart from rational skepticism), then SyncTXT is not right for you!
So what is SyncTXT?
SyncTXT is a process, and a potentially very useful method for well-intentioned people to develop themselves. It provides an opportunity to communicate with and better understand one's subconscious mind. It also provides a first-hand experience of a controversial but potentially world-changing phenomenon that has been discussed for decades. With time, it can lead to new levels of synchronistic experience, it can deepen the user's dialogue with their subconscious, and it can help develop better habits of mind.
SyncTXT is also a collaborative experiment. While we do have a sense of how the technology behind SyncTXT works under certain conditions—and while individual users may find vast amounts of consistency in their own results—synchronicities in general are still an open puzzle.
What to Expect, or "How Well Does it Work?"
In many ways, it depends on what you're seeking!
Some of our users have had excellent experiences with SyncTXT. They have received messages at times that completely blew them away and ultimately helped them in life, or even provided them with a whole new picture of the world. Others have found that the messages seem to remain more or less completely random. Most users fall somewhere in between.
Because of this, we think it is important to keep in mind that SyncTXT is unlike many of the systems or services that most users have ever experienced. Rather than being technology that works consistently in the outside world, its performance has a lot to do with the user and his or her inside world. The context and ways in which one approaches the process may have a huge impact on the outcome.
This means that in many ways, your experience with the system is going to be at least partially a function of how you interact with it. Here are some tips and items that we have found to be particularly important:
Purpose for Using SyncTXT
The reason why a person is using SyncTXT may play a huge role in determining how it works out. This is because in both laboratory and real-world experiments, we find that the ability of users (which includes their subconscious minds) to influence the system is driven largely by their intentions and goals.
In the lab we find that people who care and have a reason for participating in REG experiments get better results. At the Princeton Engineering Anomalies (PEAR) laboratory, when journalists generated data for the purpose of a story, or when students worked on experiments as part of their projects, they often outperformed others. We don't know why this was the case for sure, but there was simply a deeper desire or life-relevance to creating the results, and this kind of "true" intention (as opposed to a superficial or logically generated intention) seemed to help drive the results.
This does not mean that you have to know exactly why you are using the system—a person with a deep curiosity in these sorts of topics who has followed the field for many years is probably capable of doing quite well. But it does mean that simply signing up because someone told you to, and not caring, may not be the best way to go.
(Note: A notable exception to this involves people who are incredibly open to the possibility of these effects, and/or who simply take for granted that SyncTXT might work. Some of these people use SyncTXT with no specific purpose, and report very interesting correlations. So called "Psi Conducive" psi researchers, advanced meditators, and people well-steeped in anomalies research may be the best examples of this.)
Message Creation Phase
In addition to the general purpose for using the system, the message creation phase can be very important for some users.
It is possible to skip the message creation phase by using a SyncTXT Message Set. However, users may prefer to create custom messages, written personally and entered by hand. SyncTXT allows you to write up to sixty-four custom messages.
Where possible, try to have a deep understanding of your messages and why you enter them. Reflect on each one a bit, and know what you mean by the message and under which circumstances it would be helpful to receive this message. Sometimes, reflecting on it and allowing your intuition to help you tweak the precise wording of your message may also be helpful. The more clear you are on the creation of the message, the more able you will be to assess its relevance when you receive it, and the more likely you will be to receive it at a good time.
Your States Throughout the Day
The arrival of messages during the day may be highly correlated with the user's mental state, but possibly not in the ways that one would expect.
When users are at their peak from the perspective of creating good effects, we expect to see two results in the context of their message generation:
Increased frequency of relevant messages: The "best" users should find that given the right state of mind, they receive the appropriate message when the right situation presents itself.
Suppression of irrelevant messages: An advanced user may find that when there are no relevant messages or times for those messages to be triggered, SyncTXT remains anomalously "quiet" for them.
Users have often defined the "right state of mind" as having a sense of openness to the world around them, a level of relaxation, and a willingness to receive the messages.
For less experienced users, the puzzle becomes a bit more complex. For example, one recurring report from users is that days involving lots of excitement and enthusiasm may dramatically increase their message frequency (e.g. the number of messages received that day) even if the messages themselves may only be partially relevant. In this sense, the actual act of receiving many messages in energized emotional states, but fewer messages in other states, becomes its own sort of message to the users.
Others, particularly those who are new and have some trouble accepting the system, but who nonetheless seem to be good at producing results, have reported receiving an actual suppression of messages during the day, followed by an excess when they are sleeping, meditating, or do not have direct access to their phone.
Your General Life State
In addition to having variability with respect to states of mind during a given day, you may have a "longer-wavelength" process with respect to your emotional states in life. The fluctuations associated with this will cause the system to vary, sometimes in a quite interesting way.
As an example, suppose that Kara, a businesswoman, has begun using SyncTXT. She may find that during an ordinary workweek, the messages are more or less random, or that they correspond more to her moment-to-moment moods. However, the next week, she has a very important presentation due for her clients, and she has been working around the clock. This time, she gets many more messages than during the prior week, and with better timing and meaningfulness. The messages that relate to work, concentration, and productivity seem to be coming up much more often than her other messages.
Your Ability to Influence the System
This is an issue that will require much further study, but preliminary discussions and explorations of our user databases suggest that those users who have been successful operators in REG experiments, or who are involved in practices such as meditation, lucid dreaming, or remote viewing, are more likely to receive the kind of well-timed messages that are both meaningful and helpful to them.
Essentially, it seems that whether it is due to inherent belief systems or actual practice and experience, some familiarity with attempting to interact with processes outside of oneself may help with SyncTXT.
In addition, other users who are relatively new to SyncTXT but who have stuck it out for a long time, have also been reporting that the relevance of their messages increases as they have used the system for a while and become more familiar with it. Some say that after receiving a few relevant messages, they come to "trust" it more and expect that it will work, which can have a sort of amplification effect over time.
Boredom and "Newness"
The best users will find that during periods of emotionally relevance, uncertainty, and great meaning, and when they most need it, the system is there to provide some very relevant messages. One key point, however, is that the pool of messages in use must be somehow relevant to the user, and that the user experience be relevant to them.
In this sense, in addition to simply creating relevant messages, be sure to keep them "fresh" and relevant to your life. This does not mean changing your messages every day (that would probably be a bad idea), but rather making sure that the messages are "fresh" and that they are related to something that you care about in life.
If you have trouble with this, or if you are in a period where your prior messages just aren't relevant, you may want to consider pausing the service (done with one click on the My Alerter page) and letting new ideas come to you. It will make the next round much more interesting, enjoyable, and likely to produce useful results.
SyncTXT is meant to help mindfulness, but you may also find that mindfulness helps SyncTXT. As strange as it sounds, simply stopping for a few minutes per day to clear your mind and relax may actually improve your SyncTXT experience.
"Why are you doing this?" and "Why do you charge a fee?"
The cynic may look at the process and say "To make money!" but the reality is a good deal more complex. The key driver of Psyleron, as well as of SyncTXT, is to give users a way to explore and experiment with the possibility that their minds can affect the world, and to enable and support the ongoing research into understanding how these phenomena work.
There are literally hundreds of books and journal articles that relate to supporting or refuting phenomena pertaining to non-local consciousness and its ability to exchange information with the physical environment. Researchers have spent a great deal of time trying to understand this subject.
Our goal, as long-term explorers of this phenomena who believe in its scientific merits, is to provide the tools that will allow the people who care about these topics—whether because they are already well versed in the work, or because they do not yet have their minds made up enough and want to find out—to better explore these phenomena, develop themselves, and to come to their own conclusions about the sorts of effects that we discuss here. This is why we developed SyncTXT.
By using this system and by providing feedback to us and to our community, users support ongoing research into these phenomena and enable us to add features that help other users.
