The Lion from the Shadow
Fear~ A feeling of anxiety or apprehensiveness about a possible or probable situation or event.
Logical Fallacy ~ a fallacy is incorrect reasoning in argumentation resulting in a misconception. By accident or design, fallacies may exploit emotional triggers in the listener or interlocutor often pertaining to a mathematical significance, i.e. less than 1% of the population ever gets cancer yet it is a huge argument for Medicare.
You are going to die! Now that you’re afraid I have to ask, why? Faith is a mathematical equation that the illogical can not understand; systemic of the fact that the illogical are not mathematical. The rational abolitionist recognizes the fate of man and chooses a path leading to a rational conclusion “leaving the cave”. What % of the US population has died from terrorist and what % have died from alcohol? That’s not an indictment against alcohol. It’s an indictment against irrationality and excess. Alcohol in moderation is good for you. Water in excess will kill you. The irrational convince themselves of their own importance and the value placed upon themselves by others while simultaneously discounting the value that others posses. Never recognizing the disconnect in logic.
I am afraid of death but recognize its purpose. I am afraid of pain but recognize it has a limit. I am afraid of the masses but recognize there fluid motion. I am afraid of being nailed to a cross but still I endeavor to rise to the occasion. The pain of rising to the occasion is as bad as ones mind can conceive but the body has been built to shut down once a certain threshold is reached. Look to your child, nephew, grandchild, etc. and ask yourself what you really want? Ask yourself what you care about and what really matters? War and fear have been the standard; faith and rationality have yet to be tried. The time to hope is now. The time to have faith in something is now.
Realize that all objects are a paradigm. Wondering what’s on the other side of a cube? Turn the object over. If a lion is standing behind you burying your head in the sand will not make the lion go away. Turn around, look the lion in the eye and say with your mind, I’m taking that eye with me.
Standing on his head to turn fear upside down
