When You Are Thirsty

All religions are discussions 
amongst frogs in various wells
about this mythic place of limitless water
called the Ocean.

The discussions neither prove nor disprove the existence of the Ocean.

water cycles from the ocean to the sky,
down to the land,
into the wells,
into humans who use the wells,
back to the land,
into streams and rivers,
back to the ocean,
so on and so forth
ad infinitum.

What lesson should we take from this?

When you are thirsty,
drink water.
