Where there’s water, there is life. All of life, cycles and recycles. From life’s beginnings to death and the decomposition of cells. The circle of life: birth and living a new life through to death again, the process recycles.
We are so dependent upon water for survival. And yet we don’t treat water with respect. We wield the power of water to master the planet, to feed and create new worlds. The abundance of life stems directly from water, it nourishes and protects us.
Here are the Top Ten (10) Reasons Why Water Is Life
One. FLOWING LIFE
At the heart, all life uses water to take on important materials for creating energy, while filtering out toxic elements that will do harm. Water flows, providing an efficient means to transfer substances from one cell to another, onto the cell’s environment.
The water molecule is made up of two hydrogen atoms bonded to an oxygen atom. The unique way these elements are bonded together makes water the most wonderous universal solvent. Nearly every substance can dissolve in water.
Water can carry things into and out of the cell — that’s critical to sustaining life.
Two. PHASES OF WATER
Water changes its characteristics depending upon the range of temperatures, it can act as a solid, liquid or gas. The fact that water can be in all three phases in a relatively tight range of pressures creates many opportunities for life to flourish.
Three. THE CRADLE OF LIFE
At the dawn of life, while the universe was expanding cataclysmic explosions hurled matter through the vast void of space. Water may have provided an elastic, protective cradle that carried the building blocks of life to Earth,
Panspermia, posits that icy comets smashed into Earth, bearing tiny organic molecules that formed the precursors to life. Experts theorize that the building blocks of life may have been frozen within the water to plant the seeds of life to our planet.

Four. BALANCES OUR ECOSYSTEM
Without water the air and earth would vacillate between extreme hot and extreme cold every day, everywhere, with a gradual increase in temperature as time goes on.
The water’s oceans cools the earth when it heats up and warms it when it cools down. When the temperature drops low enough, water freezes, releasing its own heat, warming the frigid air. When the temperature rises high enough, water evaporates, taking some of the heat with it and cooling the hot air. It also cools the heat of volcanoes and wildfires, the moisture released from burning vegetation, which forms clouds that cool the air and then release rain. The water in the ground cools the surface of the earth during the day and warms it at night.
Five. DAMPENS THE BRUTE FORCE OF NATURE
The raw force of nature can be devastating, water helps to protect, to soften and blunt the powerful shocks from earthquakes. The groundwater slows down seismic waves and dampens their effects.
Six. STIMULATES LIFE
Water also softens the soil, making it easier for rain to percolate through to refill the Earth’s aquifer. The softening effect of water aides in stimulating seeds to grow. Water softens the seed’s hard cover enough for the little shoots to break out. The soft organic soil, provides a perfect medium for life.
Seven. LIFE’S SUPER HIGHWAY
Water transports nutrients and wastes. Water transports nutrients and rich soils from the mountains to lower altitudes on the way to the sea. In the ocean, water currents disperse nutrients throughout the planet.
Man uses waterways to transport goods throughout the world.
Water in plant sap and man’s blood transports nutrients and wastes to and from cells. In the brain water transports electrical charges, which stimulates thought and memory.
Without water there would be no dispersal of nutrients, electrical messages, or mass transit of goods and services that help foment life.
Eight. BREAKS DOWN AND CLEANSES
Rain cleans when it passes through air and penetrates the earth's surface. It helps cleanse our own bodies. As water passes through the kidneys, it transports dirt, debris, minerals, and toxins, washing all into the sea. Once in the ocean, algae and other microbes break down the debris down (except plastic) into basic components that support life. The ocean is a primordial soup, filled with nutrients of all kinds. From the ocean life was born.
Nine. CREATES LIFE
Water is a key component in reproduction. Sperm are carried by water to impregnate the egg. All the nutrients necessary for life are carried within the woman’s body by water (amniotic fluid) to the womb.. Babies are born with a gush of water and are immediately fed with water that is nutrient rich.
Ten. SUSTAINS LIFE
Mammals, fish, birds, insects, trees, plants, algae, krill, and many other forms of life either live directly in water or are wholly dependent upon it for survival. This includes the tiny iceworms, copepods, and diatoms that inhabit trillions of minuscule tunnels in icebergs and their undersides, providing food for whales and fish that migrate to the poles to eat.
Water helps grow crops and nourish our livestock. Water cleanses and keeps us healthy, to stimulate ideas, and to transport goods. Water helps us understand ourselves and our world.
We need to protect our water. If we don't care for it and preserve it. Give water more respect, and start doing what you can to be more careful of the way we use our water.
With water, we thrive. Without water, there is no life.
