Control is an illusion, in reality all we have are choices. For example you can’t choose to go to sleep at 11 in the night but you will sleep at eleven or will you wake up the next morning, you can not really know.
This leaves me with an impression that the most original emotional state of mankind must be that the anxiety. And if you try to look at it from a distance you will be able to see that all our ideas about securing a future, getting an insurance, wearing a helmet, having a huge bank balance…..is an attempt to avoid this state of anxiousness.
However I wonder how anxious would the dying people be? And how do they avoid such anxiety when there is no cure for it.
