It soothes, it stirs, it conjures up feelings of endlessness, like stargazing on a clear night.

The reality beneath its surface is nothing like ours; it’s full of tentacled beasts and ancient cetaceans. To explore the deep sea would be akin to exploring a faraway planet.

And yet we fly over it, we float across it, and we swim in its edges as if it’s nothing. As if it’s just part of the scenery.
