The state ensures that everybody has access to clean drinking water. Water is supplied to our home via the mains water supply. In our modern world, we take it for granted that water is available everywhere. But this luxury comes at a high price.
Our water runs through miles of piping, is compressed by pumps, filtered, and stored in reservoirs. It is domesticated.
In our technological age, knowledge about the complex effects of pure, active water, and the appreciation of this basic element have, in many cases, been lost. Our bodies are mainly made up of water, so this molecule is essential for our organism.
People used to say: “just let the tap run for a little while and the water will taste fresh”. But anybody who has ever tasted water straight from a spring or mountain stream will be able to tell the difference.
