Why are we scared?
    #6509313 - 01/29/07 08:04 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Why are we scared of nakedness. Why do we have stupid social taboos. Why are curse words shunned.... why are we scared of stupid little things? Why are we scared of each other... why are us humans so scared!?

Just going to chime in with a slightly different line.. while I have to agree about all fear of the unknown, I postulate that the real root of your question, is that we as humans are insecure. Why are we insecure? Lots of reasons, including but not limited to fear of the unknown.

Another big part though is social, we compete with each other and if we don't see ourselves as winning, we automatically label ourselves as losers.

Another part of our insecurity is our own self doubt, the I can'ts that everyone hangs onto. Which again I think leads us back to why we are afraid of the unknown. We doubt our ability to not screw the pooch when dealing with the unknown.

makes we wonder what happened right when we first began to see winner and loser dualism in human societies. have humans always been the way we are today, physically, psychologically and spiritually?

or was there perhaps a pre-temporal period in the age of our sun in which human beings were one with nature, and not split between the heaven and the earth in the way that we see inherent in all of recorded human history (~11,000 years ago< today)

self doubt in my opinion is merely a condition of a neurotic culture and is a fear which can easily be overpowered through metaprogramming.

It is because our society has got a disease of the self. It is called, the mind. Free yourself from yourself so you don't have anymore of this :blindfury:. When you do you help other people realize how ridiculous things are. It's like synergy :discodance:

Cause you dare not be afraid?

Feel alone?

when you do not have a catlist to take you out of your every day.
For instance ganja, shrooms, whatever suits your fancy. we don't notice how sily we become.

Because if we didn't have rules, we wouldn't want freedom.


--------------------
Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

We only became scared when our environment made us scared.

Because some lame-ass puritans got scared by free un-inhibited people dancing butt-naked and having sex when they felt like it and anywhere they wished, so invented this shit called religion and being a good Christian and now... here we are :sad:
