  as Floyd Red Crow Westerman so succinctly proposed...

   "Over 95% of our body is water. To stay healthy we
    have to drink good water. Our DNA is the same DNA
    as the tree. The tree breathes what we exhale. When
    the tree exhales we need what the tree exhales.
    We have a common destiny with the tree."


   four were the physical elements—fire, air, water, and earth—of which the
   entire world is composed. Alchemists eventually associated four triangular
   symbols to represent these elements.
   The fifth element, which goes by a variety of names, is more rarefied
   than the four physical elements. Some call it Spirit. Others call it Aether
   or Quintessence (literally "​​the fifth element" in Latin).
   In traditional Western occult theory, the elements are hierarchical: Spirit,
   Fire, Air, Water, and Earth - with the first elements being more spiritual
   and perfect and the last elements being more material and base. Some 
   modern systems, such as Wicca, view the elements as equal.

Having begun to understand that the YIN and YANG 'quintessential requirements ' of flying an aircraft are of course a compass for direction of flight but more importantly an artificial horizon to orient the pilot in three dimensional space and time, when flying blind so to speak, it was not until flying a hot air balloon that I realised that one only requires a COMPASS for direction, because our conscious senses are totally engaged and aligned with the multi-dimensional reality of nature to the point where you can still even hear people on the ground talking to each other !!!

ALL of which for me fits hand in glove with Martin's statement about everything is two sides of the same thing and that Quintessence is the one unchanging thing !!!
