The Overview Effect is the single most important awareness needed to activate our capacity to respond to the unprecedented global crises and opportunities we face. From the perspective of space, we see, feel, and know ourselves to be members of one whole living system. Even more, subtly, we become "universal humans" ourselves. We shift in consciousness from simply responding to problems, toward cocreating our future.
The Overview Effect stimulates a sense of hope, awareness of our connectedness, and a love of our planet Earth as a whole. While tens of thousands of us may go into space in the next few decades, billions of us will shift in consciousness. The Overview Institute is the premier organization designed to focus on the effect on consciousness of being in space in every possible way, including through media, conferences, research, networking, simulation, art. It may indeed be the "tipping point" itself.
