Overview Effect simulation gateway to holistic understanding
Simulating the Overview Effect through advanced virtual environments offers a glimpse of an introduction towards expanding our awareness that we are part of a larger reality. Driven by the ever increasing capabilities of interactive media, immersive display technologies, computer-generated special effects, 3D graphics hardware, and various sensory apparatus, virtual simulated environments take us seamlessly from this reality to another alternate reality.
But from the perspective of our consciousness, what differentiates the simulated experience from the real experience? A hint is our lifetime of learned expectations. The Overview Effect is a new type reality…an event that as we experience it, we know to be real yet a seemingly surrealistic experience that goes profoundly beyond our lifetime of learned expectations. Simulating the Overview Effect is humankind’s runway to the actual experience enabling all of us – as collective stewards of planet earth – to understand more holistically not only our place in the created universe, but our role as well.
