‘Beneath The Ocean A Stream Of Consciousness, Above The Earth A Cloud Of Thoughts:
A short essay on comparative cosmology and the possible origins of water’.

Originally published in the ‘Water’ issue of Wild Alchemy Journal, this essay introduces recent geological studies relating to the discovery of water deep inside the Earth, and comparisons to ancient mythology, specifically with the divine creators of the West African Dogon tribe called the Nommo, and their symbolic associations with the ancient Sumerian creation myth, the Enūma Eliš, which describes the mixing of two oceans as an alchemical and cosmological metaphor.
