Yes, I think that even at this depth there is life. and I'm very interested to see what's going on there.

This is completely fake, everyone knows "the ocean" doesn't exist, scientists only say it does because their grants would be cut off if they told us the truth. Follow the money, scientists get paid.

I dove the edges of Scripps Canyon in La Jolla, California for decades, it was fascinating how empty it would appear on the best high visibility days, until I got to within 5-6 feet of the ledges, walls and sides... all teeming with life. Even giant Halibut, over 6 feet long, would hide, by simply laying on the ocean floor in the upper sandy/muddy shallows.

As someone mentioned... who knows what forms of interesting and unusual life lives at the great depths.

Pfft. That's a holographic projection. Only the government has that kind of power, and they do it to make people think fiat money is legitimate. Wern told me.

I did my open ocean cert off the public beach at La Jolla >15 years ago. Eerie cruising along the edge of the drop knowing there is something lurking bigger and hungrier than you...lol. Unfortunately, fast paced health concerns days later took me almost immediately back to middle America and I haven't been on a dive since. But I have that memory.

The "Earth Temperature Timeline" would have made great Cliff Notes for a half-dozen courses I took.
