QUALITY CONCENTRATES AND COSMIC CULTURE FOR THE CANNABIS CONNOISSEUR

THE OVERVIEW EFFECT

When astronauts saw Earth from afar for the first time, they described a cognitive shift in awareness after seeing the planet "hanging in the void.” 

This state of mental clarity, called the "overview effect," occurs when you are flung so far away from Earth that you become totally overwhelmed and awed by the fragility and unity of life on our blue globe. It's the uncanny sense of understanding the "big picture," and of feeling connected to and yet bigger than the intricate processes bubbling on Earth. 

At Untethered, we aim to equip our customers with a glimpse of the overview effect and encourage a similar awaking through the enjoyment of our connoisseur cannabis concentrates.

"That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives. 
The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. 

Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. 

Our posturing, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. 

In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. 
It is up to us. It’s been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. 

To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. 
To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known."

— Carl Sagan, speech at Cornell University, October 13, 1994
