Rogue waves are extremely high ocean waves that exceed the significant wave height by more than a factor of 2. Extreme waves are also very rare; less than one in 100,000 waves exceeds the rogue wave criterion. While their existence was long disputed throughout the 1990s, thousands of rogue waves have been recorded on oil rigs in the past 20 years. Nevertheless, the origin of rogue waves is still disputed, with a multitude of competing theories that fall into two basic categories: linear theories consider incidental random interference the origin of rogue waves. Recently nonlinear theories gained increasing popularity as they promise that certain characteristic wave patterns may possibly precede a rogue event. (1)

“Something interacts” and “something happens” …

Randomly or not, it does not matter.

Because the actual nature of the ocean is beyond any such interpretation.

The ocean is deep, cold, scary. The ocean is mystical, alone, powerful. The ocean is peaceful. The ocean is dark. The ocean is silent. The ocean is never random. Look at the large waves. The ocean does not interact. The ocean Is. Let yourself go. Feel the power of the cold water. Feel the loneliness of the cosmos.

The ocean is what it is.

You are drowning…

Watching the sun fade away…

As you descend to the depths of the abyss…

Afraid. Cold.

And yet…

A sudden warmth welcomes you…
