Water has a soothing effect on the soul, it seems, no matter where it might happen to be found. In particular, water that is flowing over rocks or in a fountain has the greatest calming effect. Again, that seems to be true whether the "fountain" is a man-made floor fountain or a natural waterfall. Try relaxing by the indoor fountain at your nearest mall to test this out.
Maybe this relaxing effect on our soul is due to the fact that our bodies are composed of mostly water. I don't know. But science tends to take a back seat when it comes to our everyday experience of things.
