*WATCH A VOLCANO ERUPT
– LAVA / ASH / SMOKE / GAS / FIRE
I’ve got less than 15,000 days before I die to explore the 197,000,000 square miles of Earth and try its infinite experiences.
What is it about violence and destruction that fascinates us? Why can’t we look away from terrible car accidents? And why are natural disasters so monstrously beautiful despite their ugly aftermath?
The more monstrous, the more magnificent the spectacle and there is probably nothing else like watching a volcano erupt in all its glory in all of Earth.
Volcanoes are after all, the most powerful natural forces in the world. I am human so it makes sense that I want to see this force in action, up close and personal.
It has to be the awesomest naturally occurring event that the human eye can comprehend – surreal visuals like spectacular special effects in real life.
Lava, or mistakenly but graciously called “liquid fire” soaring out like hell explosively breaching to the surface with a greatly overwhelming amount of ash that blot out the sun or stars like a viral invasion.
But it’s not just a visual experience. The waving heat and burning with a mind of its own forces you to feel what you’re seeing, supersaturating your senses.
Before I Die… watch a volcano erupt.
