PINE TREE POST | Science Page
Anecdotal evidence suggests that people, in general, are drawn to water. Is this for survival, or is there a deeper almost spiritual side to our relationship with the wet stuff? You may recall a similar story from Earth Day 2013, click here.
A recent quasi experiment on the shores of Lake Ontario, involving a couple of children from the Place Under the Pine, is hard evidence that water is like a magnet to the human soul.
On a warmer than usual Sunday afternoon, two subject we will call E and O2 (O squared), were escorted down to the shores of a rocky beach in the west end of Kingston.
|O2 (Left) - E (Right)|
|The rock throwing did not last long|
This caused one of the subjects (O2) to 'fall' in. Fall, being a relative term, as the subject did fall but it was no accident.
This lead to the other subject (E) to disregard the plan/instructions for only toes in the water and he was soon sitting in the water as well.
|The water made O2 and E temporarily insane|
