It turns out when we do put ourselves at the edge of the water, visually our field of view is simplified. Auditorily our world is simplified. You’re sensory input gets simple. It doesn’t completely turn off. It doesn’t go away. But the patterns become more clear. When you get into the water, assuming that you want to be in the water, it’s totally different if you get thrown into the water. That’s more of a red mind experience. Assuming that this is all taking place and you’re in control. The waves are small, the water is warm and you want to be there. Then you give up the gravity. The hundreds of muscles that were holding you in the position that you were standing in no longer need to do the work. And the brain regions that were taking care of that aspect of living on land get a break. So auditorily, visually, somatically, you’re getting a break. You’re getting a rest.  So what happens  is you go into what is often referred to as the default mode or the default mode network is activated which is a more contemplative, self referential perspective. - Wallace Nichols
