SOUNDS OF SILENCE

Administrator Lydia will be taking the site over on the 22nd July 2016

Blue Planet Astronauts speak about their experience.

On the 40th anniversary of the famous ‘Blue Marble’ photograph taken of Earth from space, Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.

The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of the planet and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

‘Overview’ is a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect. The film also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment.

Think of yourself the size of a ant standing on the moon and looking into the heart of GOD.

Wooooooow

Ahhhh.... Thank you. Just what I needed to see.

Perfect.

...And, beautiful reading your comment down there at the bottom, Carol. It likens strongly to the perspective I gathered after watching this. Its a beautiful direction things are all taking and I believe were finally entering into an age that can recognize the power of the creation of the awareness. It was the communicated concept that came as a result of a perfectly defined experience that made this video so beautifully moving. That was my take, anyway. Thank you, thank you, thank you. It's beautiful.
Love T

When i see video´s like this, I ask myself how do individual problems seem so big sometimes:)) then i imagine  a world without Fear, violence, greed, poverty,basically the end of suffering on all levels......Then I imagine us all doing what we love and are good at, humans helping each other, people taking care of the earth eg, no toxins to harm, energy from natural sources,.......... then it begins to feel like HOME :))
