#546 The whites of the water are but hidden flowers..






When I was younger I used to say to my parents, look at those whites in the water.
My parents jokingly used to say, they aren’t whites but Seahorses jumping around for the Lady of the Sea who is dropping flowers into the ocean. Never questioning it, I also used to believe that the ocean was always blue and that one day I would meet the lady of the ocean.
Believe me after all these many years, no matter how many times I swim in the ocean; there is no lady of the sea but damn sharks instead!!


A common misconception that I had about the ocean being blue is believed by many of us, that the reason for the blueness was due to the reflections from the sky on its surface. This is not true.
The real reason the ocean is blue is because water, pure water, is blue. According to its frequency spectra, water is a very light shade of turquoise blue. You need a huge amount of it to really see its color. It’s like a teaspoon of oil, it looks transparent on a white spoon, but in the bottle looks yellowish.  If the ocean owed its color to the sky, it would be a different shade of blue and it would be white on cloudy days. You can see clouds reflected in the surface on the sea, but they don’t completely change its color.  Some constituents of sea water can influence the shade of blue you see in the ocean. This is why it can look greener or bluer in different areas.


However, the ‘lady of the sea keeps dropping those flowers’ into the ocean and those whites that you see, just means it is a rough current, and that it is getting or about to be windy!! J
