How the Overview Effect is similar to other World View Changes

The mass experience of The Overview Effect of space travel, seeing the reality of the Earth in space, will eventually be seen as a major driver of one of the greatest shifts in world awareness in the Modern World, equivalent or greater than the Copernican Revolution or the discovery of the New World. Whether by direct experience or sophisticated simulation and artistic representation, this experience will forever alter the life we think we are living and world we think we are in.

The Overview Effect and its message for us

Written by Frank White on Saturday, 16 May 2009. Posted in Overview Institute

The Overview Effect is a message from the universe to humanity. The message is that the Earth, when seen from orbit or the moon, is a whole system, where borders and boundaries disappear, and everything is interconnected. Our planet is a tiny spaceship in an enormous universe, which is itself a whole system, of which we are an important part.

This declaration of our intention to found the Overview Institute is also a "Declaration of Interdependence" with the Earth and with the cosmos. For us, it represents an understanding that we must now become Overviewers, those who have heard the message, want to understand it fully, and manifest its implications in our own lives.
