95% of the Ocean is unexplored so why aren't you out exploring the deep blue?

They all say they are proud of me but I still think I am letting them all down.
The ocean has some fucked up shit down there. Also it's too dark to see anything once you reach a certain depth and the pressure will just crush you. And the surface of the ocean is pretty boring.
I have been at sea pretty far out (about 250-300 miles offshore) in 2000 feet of water and there is something unsettling when you have zero radio contact with any ships (radio range about 100 miles). Needless to say I didn't sleep much when I was out there.
we're more likely to find aliens in space m8
Also unsettling if you're on a small yacht going 6 knots or so with nothing around then wake up to a massive shipping vessel going 20+ knots and only a couple of miles away. Imagine being taken out by a huge container ship as you slept
THERE IS NOTHING UNDER THE OCEAN DO NOT GO DOWN THERE YOU WILL FIND NOTHING
What does this even mean? 100% of the ocean's depth is know and mapped.
And I'm sure we know 80% of species in the ocean, with the remaining 19% being subspecies and 1% being actual unknown species.
What exactly is there to explore that is comparable to space or the world?

we literally find new species every time we go on a dive
