Background

A description of the experience

Lyall Watson – The Water Planet

In the beginning there was only water.  For the Mayans,  a peaceful sea under a vast emptiness of sky, waiting to be disturbed by the storm god Huracan.  For Pima and Apache, Chuckchi and Blackfoot, nothing moves until Old Man comes floating by on his raft, willing the world into existence.  Commanding … that there be a firmament in the midst of the waters.  From then on it is up to the Finnish Ahto, Babylonian Tiamet, or Roman Maia to keep the land well watered…..
