Eagle Vision & The Overview Effect

from Reflections On A Shift – Om Vibrations 2013 by Michael Garfield



An evolutionary philosophical performance weaving together art, science, and spirituality. Recorded live on Sunday, 19 May 2013 at Longhorn Cavern State Park, Texas for Om Vibrations Experience.

Michael hacks our conceptual metaphors to explore:

• the permeable boundary between individual and collective;
• the spiritual impact & importance of space travel;
• the new levels of selfhood brought on by frictionless media;
• the evolutionary incentives for playfully social minds;
• the relationship between our personal and social transformation;
• the tragedy of miscommunication between future-shocked cultures;
• the promise and potential of the corporation in an age of immortals;
• and more mind-bending ideas at the horizons of human experience...
