A paragraph on fear.

Fear is irrational and inappropriate.  Let’s try to rationalise it.  Firstly let’s recognise what fear is – a chemical reaction. The word fear stands for fantasies envisaged as real. And that’s just what they are. For in primitive times people lived by their fears and their biological instincts when faced with a threat was to fight or flee. The autonomic nervous system directed the organs and systems of the body to deal with a threatening situation by producing chemicals and directing the flow of blood and oxygen to the parts of the body that needed it most.  However this is inappropriate when there is no actual foe to fight or flee from.  So think good outcomes, big videos with positive emotions and anticipate good things!
