What If... We Could Supress Our Fear?

November 28, 2018

   In the modern world, fear is more of an inconvenience than a motivator. If something frightens you, you can probably just avoid it. Sure, doing so is an imperfect solution, and for some fear remains a tremendous obstacle in their lives. It is not, however, the bulwark against extinction it used to be. We’re afraid of war, instability, poverty, but these fears are new and manageable, not like fear of stalking predators or imminent starvation.In the modern world, fear is more of an inconvenience than a motivator.

 

   If something frightens you, you can probably just avoid it. Sure, doing so is an imperfect solution, and for some fear remains a tremendous obstacle in their lives. It is not, however, the bulwark against extinction it used to be. We’re afraid of war, instability, poverty, but these fears are new and manageable, not like fear of stalking predators or imminent starvation.

 

    What scares us now are the small things. We panic at the morning traffic, or a late bill. We’re scared of losing a job or failing a test. These things can stifle and harm us as quick as any primal fear; but imagine if they didn’t have to. What a world it would be if you could take away the little fears, and the big ones. Go skydiving, invest in risky stocks, travel to far off places… there’s no limit to what you could do without fear. No limit except death itself.


    Could you even cash in on that privilege? Would it be worth it to tempt fate over and over just because you could? In this episode we explore the pros and cons of a life free of fear.
