By: THE CENTER FOR PLANETARYIDENTITY.ORG
The Center for Planetary Identity launched a new website with the mission of bringing a greater sense of reality of our mutual existence on a planet, which will change world culture into one with a newer, more inclusive sense of personal identity.
The Center is led by David Beaver, the initiator, co-founder, and Chief Cognitive Researcher of the Overview Institute (which brought the Overview Effect into wider public awareness); and JP Chastain, Media Producer and Digital Media Director of the Institute. Planetaryidentity.com is a hub for science related projects, media outreach, & education.
