Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one, but there is also a third thing that makes water,
and nobody knows what that is.

The sea and not the surface of the Earth is the natural home of life.  The surface is hostile to life. The temperature varies into extremes not seen in the ocean. The weather is harsh and violent. A hurricane can be raging on the surface and fifty feet down the sea is calm and untroubled.  Living beings require water and those on land must soon find a constant source or perish.
Terrestrial creatures must strive to keep their water within their bodies and are always in danger of drying out. The sun is incredibly harsh on land when not filtered by the water. Few creatures, even those evolved in the deserts can tolerate constant exposure to the sun. All living creatures require salt and yet salt is a rare commodity on the surface and mainly found where ancient seas once existed. In short when we leave the sea we must take her with us.
We say “Mother Earth” perhaps it should be “Mother Ocean”.
