It is fascinating that water meant always more for mankind than just a fluid in order to satisfy our thirst, it can also be regarded as a magic agent substantial for life. Many of the global recorded myths have a strong focus on water like the Sumerian historical tradition mentioning a primordial ocean – embodied in the goddess Nammu – as the source of all life on Earth.
Hence, not so long ago in Sicily, at the Grotto of the Sybil, at the ancient temple of Apollo, on St. John’s Eve, 23rd June, women and girls used to visit the grotto with the belief that by drinking of the ‘prophetic water’ they would learn weather their husbands or boyfriends had been faithful to them in that particular year.

Water does appear in so many disguises and diverse conditions that it must be really described as a leading designer of/on our planet Earth. Just think of the tremendous gorge of the Grand Canyon or the 400 km long Lambert Glacier in Antarctica.
Each day the global weather system condenses enormous amounts of sea water and transforms them to huge chrystalline clouds being then chased by the wind at any place of the world. The clouds are in constant change of their forms – driven by the endless dancing saturated damps in the sky. This may induce finally even the sun to retreat for a couple of time.

Water is also dangerous, anarchic and lawless because this fluid establishs one of the big exceptions in chemistry and physics where their logic fails to really describe the secrets of this fluid because it is more than just a molecular combination of hydrogene and oxygene.
The special structure of the water molecules and their ability to build large geometrical clusters are the typical behavioral capabilities of water. The quality of water is also increasing with a more harmonic geometrical cluster which can change depending on environmental conditions.

So we should really care more about this principal terrestrial reserve, these fluid endless depths mean our very original home.
