Binding Spell on Bin Laden

A couple of days before the event, I received an email from Greg Nelson describing a ceremony or ritual planned by various modern Wiccan and pagan groups, and promoted by email lists. The intent was to place a "Binding Spell" on Osama Bin Laden. Here is the description:

    > Wherever you are, whatever your individual
    > tradition may be, please plan to join with
    > hundreds of others "of like mind" on the evening
    > of Monday, October 15 at 9 p.m. Eastern Time to
    > perform a Binding on Osama bin Laden. A Binding is
    > a magickal act designed NOT to cause harm to the
    > subject, but to render him powerless to act and to
    > immobilize him.

"I'm making a prediction of increased coherence from 9pm-9:30pm EST, if you want something formal."

The corresponding period in GMT is 01:00 to 01:30 on the 16th of October 2001. Seconds resolution, medium confidence. The analysis yields a positive final value, with Chisquare 1835.3 on 1800 df, and p = 0.276. But the trend is not steady, and instead shows a rather interesting sequence of ups and downs. I take it as a pleasant indicator that the "ups" won out over the "downs."
