Fear/Anxiety is an expression of our cognitive mechanism of forecasting. Fear is different from Fight/Fight, which is an action-based response to a perceived threat in the present moment – action must be taken now. Fear/Anxiety is the prediction of threat at some future moment. Although our fears can seem very real, when viewed from this perspective as an expression of our forecasting abilities, it becomes apparent that fear is an illusion – the product of a trick our lineage picked up to manipulate the dimension of time to our advantage.
