Overview Effect Experience

The Overview Effect Experience is an artistic and emotional multiplayer adventure - a live VR group meditation event in the metaverse. The experience begins in The Individual Space, where all participants - people who come from all around the world into this virtual space - get to know each other and share their feelings and visions. From now on, we will gradually become a united group of human beings heading outside our individual environment, high above an Urban Landscape, throughout Imaginary Mountains Peaks still we finally reach the Space. In this final station we look at our planet - planet Earth, without any geographic nor cultural borders, our only place for life. The final scene is an artistic VR animated simulation of the phenomenon known as “The Overview Effect”, defined by prof. Frank White. Together, we take the position of the entire human kind as we try to understand the precious value of our planet and how can we help Earth and ourself to survive in a better way. Finally, we hold our hands and share our love sending our energy to the universe.
The experience is using the voice of Frank White as he expresses his thoughts, his feelings and vision about our goal in the universe. Frank White is the author of The Overview Effect : Space Exploration and Human Evolution.
