According to physical laws, events in water and air have different properties and are experienced differently from happenings on land. Do we land beings change our own characteristics because of, or in order to interact in these strange and ultimately inhospitable elements? How much of our physical form must we leave behind to visit these realms, and how much of our intellectual knowledge of earth-reality must we renounce in trying to understand and learn something perhaps unknowable and incapable of any knowledge of, or response to us?
Exploring these questions through physical senses rather than intellect leads inescapably to our essential interrelationship with all matter—or should we say all life? Our traditional measures of space and time, and our relative importance as forms of life are examined in eternally new ways within elemental mediums that are ever-changing in themselves.
