How would your life be different if you were incapable of feeling fear? Would your life be better or worse than it is now?
I think a lot of us would have different lives if we were incapable of feeling fear. We might be more adventurous and more brave and take more risks. Some bully harassing you? Kick him in the balls! The job is great and you want it but you have to move half way across the country? Hell yeah, let’s do it.
I think people will become mostly risk takers start skydiving, adventure trekking, deep sea diving, catching sharks under water, hunting wild animals all the time, wrestler big wrestler, get into the ring with boxing / MMA fighters, jump off tall skyscrapers, want to go into space and do all kinds of crazier shit than what I can think of. And that can be dangerous too! While life might become more interesting it can also make it short if you aren’t careful. Sticking your head into a lion’s mouth? Well that can make you lose your head right there.
Life might be better if we lost the ability to feel fear but can balance that with a lot of intelligent thinking and if we had the right information in front of us. To let you know that it’s not ok to check out the tonsils of that hungry and mean looking lion! Balance is what we need.
