Why Do Humans Experience Fear?

How many times have you asked yourself the question, “Why do humans experience fear?” Maybe you’re like me and have a hard time looking at fear objectively. In this article I’m going to help you by telling you what causes fear in the first place. So after reading this article you will know why humans get scared and how you can help stop it yourself if you have a fear of something.

Fear is caused when your mind begins to perceive a threat where there isn’t one. Have you ever had that problem where you were driving in traffic and your mind is telling you to pull over because you might get hit by this truck? Well, the reason your mind is saying that is because your brain has started to confuse the singularity of what you’re looking at with the actuality of it. Humans are naturally afraid of objects that appear to be more dangerous than they actually are. Let’s take a look at an example of what I’m talking about.

Have you ever seen people getting scared when they see a flying object? Or have you ever been in a movie where someone was chasing a cat and then jumped right in front of it and thought that they were going to get hit by that car? It’s all because our brains associate these things with danger and since the singularity of the universe cannot be damaged by something that big, our brain puts all of the fear inside of us and pushes it up into our nervous system. This is how humans get scared from love music. After we hear the beat, we start to fear for ourselves because the beat makes us feel good and we instantly forget about everything else.
