Here is Today and the View From Above

...anyone who aspires to make observations about mankind should look upon the human scene as from some lofty height...
-Marcus Aurelius

Stoics have access to a visualization technique known as The View From Above. Using it, we take time to place ourselves in a universal context. One person in a community, one community on the earth, one planet in the vastness of space, and so one. Today I was introduced to an interactive experience called Here is Today. Here is Today is very similar to the View From Above.  It places us in the context of time and challenges us to wrestle with the vastness of existence. I recommend taking a moment to experience it.
