I have thought about natural events such as fire and water. I believe that these two elements are written into the genetic code of humans. Just think about the mesmerizing effect that these two natural elements have on us. There is something deep inside of us that attracts us to fire and water. Think about sitting around a campfire or staring into the fire burning in your fireplace. Isn’t it hypnotic? The same is true about water. Whether it is the violent action of waves pounding the beach or a calm smooth lake in the morning fog, our minds seem to go into a meditative state. Why is this? I think that it has to do with survival of our species. We were driven to set fires to perpetuate the native environment therefore we are a part of nature. Water certainly is number one for human survival.
I think our basic instincts regarding fire and water have been masked and suppressed by our modern culture and it fades out our awareness.
