When O2 is a make-belief H2O

We had ordered a Brita Water Filteration System at Amazon and I just recieved it. The medium size cardboard box contained the product, another pack of 3 filters and a string of air packets. Yeah, air packets for a safe shipping and delivery. I was so eager to drink some fresh filtered water that I completely ignored the presence of these air packets. Well, after following the user's guide and a half an hour of cleaning the pitcher, soaking the filter, pouring the water into the reservoir, I finally gulped some hopefully pure transparent liquid.

Well, then I checked out these air packets and thought what can I do with them. (I usually think like can I...)

And, the only thing that came instantaneously to my mind was to stand on them. And it turned out to be 'an experience'. 

We humans are so insecure that we feel so safe to follow habits which we are accustomed to. I knew it won't hurt me, 'coz I am too big and heavy to be toppled over by a small 10"X6" packet of air. But then sometimes we do fear to experiment. 

I was surrounded by the mental images of astronauts walking on the moon, aliens strolling in the other planets  and what makes them look like match sticks with only a head which is visible on their creepy skinny bodies. 
I went on to blame the earth's gravitational force to be responsible for making the human race fat. 

And how come I have never seen a 'FAT ANT' .. hmmm!!

So, I stood on it and wallah...!!! I got an Idea !! 

Just imagine...
... you are inside an aquarium watching the jelly 
fishes, humble fish and plenty of beautiful, magnificent, breatht
aking sea beings...but instead of standing on a concrete floor you are trying to settle yourself on the air packets. It will make you feel almost as vulnerable as you would have felt beneath the deep waters. For people who haven't ever tried to or fear to hold their breath inside water they will go crazy on the floor. 

The whole  idea is to replicate some experiences and deliver in a manner which is safe and never fades from the memory. 

Let me stand on the air packets again...
