Water I

Fortunately there is a lot of water at Le Ripe.

Le Ripe fishpond with Niji, our only remaining koi, saying hello
Thales of Miletus c. 624 BC – c. 546 BC

The first scientist philosopher, Thales of Miletus, considered water nature's fundamental substance.

"The much-discussed four substances - of which we say the chief is Water, making it as it were the one Element - by combination and solidification and coagulation of the substances in the universe mingle with one another. In what way, I have already explained in Book One."
