The Science & Power Of Water
Aug 18, 2020
“One of the many possible ways to describe life would be as a series of encounters with various bodies of water. Time spent in, on, under, or near water interspersed with the periods spent thinking about where, when, and how to reach it next.”
We all know the feeling, but in his book Blue Mind, Marine biologist Wallace J. Nicholls explores the science behind our deep relationship with water.

Looking out at the water, with its surface shifting in a hypnotic rhythm, is immensely calming.
Nichols describes it as our “Blue Mind – A mildly meditative state characterized by calm, peacefulness, unity, and a sense of general happiness and satisfaction with life in the moment.”
He ascribes the effect to “soft fascination”, the gentle, unobtrusive play of the motion of the water on our senses.
“We are beginning to learn that our brains are hardwired to react positively to water and that being near it can calm and connect us, increase innovation and insight, and even heal what’s broken.”
