The thing about water, is, that it is about emotion. So, being flooded with water is being flooded with emotion. Truly, everyone felt fear, awe, anger, frustration, and some even had brushes with death. Water is also what we use to cleanse. Doctors and nurses wash their hands before an operation. We use water to bless. The rite of baptism springs to mind. And, we use water for drinking, cooking, and playing.
