Drowning on the Surface

Water occupies 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, and it contains more than 200,000 species. We are separated from the world with an average depth of 4,000 meters by a thin layer of water. Interestingly, marine life can swim in all directions by the buoyancy of water, but humans must move horizontally on the ground, without the help of any flying tools. Using sea level as the origin, the world on the sea level is a positive space, and below the sea level is a negative space. The space that human beings can explore freely is relatively limited. With this thin layer, what can you see through it?
