Fear has always been mankind’s greatest gift. Fear of the unknown specifically.
Fear closes off the mind disallowing the inheritance of new information and the very ability to truly perceive. There are horrors in this world that were not meant for mortal ken. Monstrous ideals that have the power to unhinge the mind in totality leaving nothing but a gibbering mound of flesh in wake. When you gaze into the abyss, the abyss gazes back into you. What better way to prevent looking then to provide a defense mechanism which turns your eyes astray forcing you to flee? Surely you are quite blessed with terror.
With the coming of this new age of man however, I have discovered a new fear which has enveloped the hearts of man. One that hinders rather then benefits. One which corrupts rather then protects. It is fear of love.
