The phenomenal experiences in my life that might sweep away my means, drastically change my philosophy or take me to places I did not know they exist, is a routine for others, goes unnoticed by most or is just too common for the rest. How much can we put ourselves in others’ shoes? How much should we? Hearing other people’s stories while imagining their worst experiences can get us close to them only as close as Icarus can get to the sun, as our self-preservation and the will for immortality, will burn the wings of our sympathy. Nevertheless, the illusion of safety and permanence that we created through our little precautions is useless most of the time. But we deliberately ignore this fact, and while we mourn and regret and sigh and yearn, we find ways to carry on. That is how human history was written and that is how our species is going to continue dominating this world. I might delude that I will die from water, I might actually die from water, but it will always stay as the source of life and there will always be people to rebuild what is lost, recover what is swept, clean the moss and burn the debris.
Aquaphobia is a specific phobia that involves a level of fear from water that is beyond the patient’s control or that may interfere with daily life.
Water covers 70.9% of the Earth’s surface, and is vital for all known forms of life.
