There’s something other worldly about being underwater. Sounds become distant echoes, your body feels as if it’s floating and you begin wondering if the things you’re seeing are hallucinations. It’s like the real world has been blurred and reality is a thing of the past. You’ve become numbed and if you want it to be, everything is more perfect than it’s ever been before.
What’s best about being underwater though is if you want to fall, you can fall. You’re in complete control and until you reach the ground, there’s nothing stopping you. You can just let your body drop deeper and deeper into the water and as far away from the real world as you want. The deeper you fall, the less real reality becomes, and that is really quite magnificent.
It’s just unlucky you have to come back up for air at some point.
