Geologist: It reminds me that going to dangerous or unsafe places is a worthwhile thing. You’re really cut off from any support system. If your one life support system fails, you’re pretty much going to die. And you look around and there’s all these microbial things, just floating specks all around you in the water. And you’re like, “This thing is so much more well-suited to survive in this environment than I am.” And that’s sort of loss of complacency, I feel like it’s really valuable to me. If I’m nervous or self-conscious in music I sort of draw on that feeling of how inspiring it can be to overcome that fear.
