Something that has always bothered me. The Sun is our lifeline - it is essential for pretty much anything humanity and the rest of life needs to survive. However, the main issue with the sun is that it is blindingly bright. We cannot look at the sun without suffering irreparable damage to our eyes. Is there a reason for this? What purpose does having a sun damage people's eyesight serve?

What purpose does water serve? The same water that we need to survive, can drown us.

Fire is for heat. But it also burns.

The sun is the perfect distance from earth, to support life.
