The Overview Effect moves humanity closer to world peace
The Overview Effect may be one of the most important experiences we can try to bring to people. This experience needs to be made available for all people. It is also crucial to bring this experience to leaders around the world, regardless of whether they are political, corporate or academic leaders. All of us can benefit from this experience.
The experience itself is deeply rooted in our biology. As a neuroscientist studying a broad variety of human experiences, it appears to me that the brain itself is capable of taking in the Overview Experience and converting such an overwhelming concept into our behaviors and thoughts. Individuals who have had the Overview experience feel a breaking down of boundaries and a sense of the interconnectedness and preciousness of the Earth and all those who live on it.
The Overview Effect is a testament to how our brain is wired to enable us to transcend our often petty goals and seek to become something greater than we already are. By encouraging others to have the Overview experience, we have the opportunity to move humanity closer to world peace by deepening our understanding of those around us and committing ourselves to improving the lives of all human beings.
