APSARAS: "flowing in the waters", celestial Nymphs, seductive creatures, sometimes benevolent, always capricious. They came out of the waves like the first seed of the mind: desire. The first pact between mind and matter was sealed upon the waters. Waters flow and reflect, they are plurality itself. The waters of the mind are flowing into those of the world and the waters of the world are flowing into those of the mind to the point where they become undistinguishable one from the other.
