Mirroring our time in the tiny sea of the amniotic sac, freediving is the most profound engagement between humans and ocean, the unmediated body immersed and uncontrolled in salt water. It is simultaneously planetary and intensely intimate. The ocean is both all around us and within us. That breadth of scale can be terrifying or reassuring. It's not about discovery, it's about recovery. We can freedive expertly from the minute we are born but slowly forget. Our cultural preoccupation with growth and exploration washes away our embodied knowledge.
