603 Fear has many faces

Fear has many Faces

Fear has many faces. However, fear of loss of control, judgment, etc. are individual conscious worldviews with semantics (worldview*in-sem) co-created from the unconscious emotion and cognition system via serial, parallel and recursive processes (time t.2 to t.6).

Emotions are always individual. They are neural emotive programs (nePs) that can be grouped into basic and compound emotions and individual nePs. In the emotion system, flexible emotive movements are initiated with the emotive trilogy (t.2 to t.4):

  1. internal sensory stimuli without semantics (stimuli*in-sen)
  2. the predominant internal arousal
  3. the activated nePs

The human thinking, decision-making and perception process is always initiated by stimuli, which only sometimes originate from an external stimulus and are subsequently transformed into stimuli by the sensory channels.

Fear is not a “survival response.” The neP(fear) leads to an emotive movement rigidity (freeze) at high arousal, which has allowed organisms to survive evolutionarily. The neP(fear) acts as the first neP in the neP sequence.

This is the reason why “fear” or neP(fear) expresses itself in so many different faces.
