Man’s relationship with the universe

Depending on who I am and what my self-concept and self-worth is, I take a view of the world.

If there is a pool of water and I am playful, then the pool of water is a sport for me. If there is a pool of water and I have a phobia, then the pool of water is a danger for me. If there is a pool of water and I am thirsty, then the pool of water is physical sustenance and survival for me.
