Fear of Death


The fear of death is a natural mechanism through which one protects itself and prolongs its existence in time. It is imprinted in your DNA that you don’t want to die. That’s why, you eat, you breathe, you avoid dangerous situations. So, your fear protects you, it protects your organism – otherwise, you would just die. For why to bother so much about surviving?
