There is lots of energy down there, if you are willing and able to experience it. Powerful, very powerful. Personally I think it has a lot to do with removing yourself from daily life, completely losing connection with a normal schedule and experiencing nothing non-natural (excluding our gear of course, but no buildings, lawns, signs, etc). I found Phantom shockingly offensive to my senses, and don't really want to stop there next time I go. I'd love to just get water and float by, but I doubt that will happen.
