8 MINUTES OF STUNNING DEEP OCEAN MYSTERIES AND WONDERS

Posted in Blog Archive

We love the natural world here at DerrenBlog, so here’s another wonderful video on the wonders and as of yet unexplored beauty of our oceans. It covers over 70% of the planet and is on average 2 miles deep, yet we’ve only explored a measly 5% of it. This is odd because the oceans are involved in such a huge part of our lives.

Take 8 minutes to marvel at a tiny percentage of the beautiful creatures and mysterious oddities we have already found there. Would you like some underwater river with that?

Fantastic, (side note I ethically chose to stop eating sea life before I chose to become vegetarian, be aware that humanities current way of life and its several billion strong population does consume what would otherwise be natural habitat filled with life).

Assuming we do not rely on the health of the natural world and may even have the capacity to survive and perhaps even prosper without it I feel in hindsight it will be seen as a short-sighted mistake to ignore any potential we have to preserve and keep areas of the natural world undisturbed by human self interest and perhaps even assist.

Obviously governments are aware of these problems, but more specifically I hope we can all become aware of a way of life that makes us a participant and enhancer of life rather than the beneficiary.

It is in the oceans where the brain munching aliens lives that come and probe me every night.

As much as I like evolution I have always remained disappointed that we are not all amphibious. Maybe I just need to get a mini sub or a really big pair of waders.

Or as Albert Szent-Gyorgyi put it: seeing what everyone sees and thinking what no one else thinks. Usually as a result of questioning what others have previously accepted without question. Imagine a column of numbers that someone has totalled as 103, but you believe makes 100. You ask them to redo it, which they reluctantly do. Yet still make it 103. They are now positive that you are mistaken. So ask them to start with 103 and take the numbers from that. When they don’t get 0, they usually do it again. After that they know for themselves something is awry. Coming at things from lots of different angles works like a new pair of specs.
