Marius Ritiu highlights in his work the importance, here, on Earth, of an “overview effect” approach (usually experienced by those traveling to space). Ritiu believes in an imperative need to create a planetary society with the united will to protect this ”pale blue dot”, Earth. Cultural differences, religion, tribes, nations, race, these are all creative expressions and variations that should and could be celebrated, but instead they become symbols that are all too often used to create suffocating boundaries. By zooming out and reconsidering our position in the Universe we can learn to pay more attention to fields like science and art. As technology and information enable greater mobility of ideas, goods and people, the role of the physical border is shifting.
