There's always certain things in life that confuse me that other people and myself do. Why do people hurt other people? Not just physically but also emotionally?
People hurt other people to make themselves feel better, yet why? I find no value in other peoples pain so why should anyone else. Pain is weakening. If everyone hurt each other society would fall and fear would rule. No anarchy. But fear.
Fear brings me to another subject. Almost all of the time fear is what controls people and makes them obey. Fear is irrational, fear is abstract, unneeded, useless to ourselves. Fear is what controls us. Why don't we jump off a building? Fear of death. Why don't we dress how we like? Fear of being judged.
The only reason most things exist is because of fear. Flashlights? Fear of dark, unknown, what you can't see. Not everything evolves from fear though, for example pots? Just easier to use rather than some other way of making food.
