Water

May 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

Water is a mediator between life and death because it is a source of both regeneration and annihilation (see also: Transformation). Not only is water rejuvenating, life is also created in water. The place from which all life comes; the primeval ocean, a concept that also is associated with the unconscious.

Furthermore, water is a communicator between the surface and the abyss/depths. The surface itself functions a divider between above and below, between the upper world (life, light) and the lower world (death, darkness).

Another division between above and below, is the distinction between the “upper waters” and “lower waters”, where the former stands for potentiality, possibilities – that which might be, and the latter represents the actual or that which already have been created.

Water also symbolizes the concept of “liquid matter” in general.
