Now that cell phones are raised, it is possible to use a
two step process to synchronize a world-wide "Ommm" or to
focus hatred on a particular person. (That last is from an
old SF story about criminals being executed in an arena by
public hating. In practice, it doesn't work any better than
any other form of mental power except hypnotism.) You see,
speculation can run wild when there is no data. Perhaps
this is a means to coordinate an attack.
Assuming that everyone involved has access to a clock and a
telephone, it is possible to call a number minutes before an
event. The synchronization is from a tone on the telephone.
Telcos have numbers that many people can call to handle local
events. Negotiations could be made with telcos to set up the
synchronization number. The cost would be spread over many
individuals. Perhaps network broadcasts could be persuaded
to broadcast a beep (or pips) at the right time.
OTOH, if the problem is to establish a world-wide heart beat
at a certain frequency, then point synchronization is not
Hoping this scheme is mostly harmless, as the Guide puts it.
