Fear is the limits of what we know, so is fear in thought or out of thought. Does thought inform or does it keep separate?
So how do we know what we know? As a baby we don’t recognise colours, shapes etc but eventually we draw on the mental and emotional energy of our environment and link our identity close to this.
This explains why families, communities and countries behave in very similar ways.
The diagram below serves to answer the question:
So what is it to ‘inform’? Information comes before knowledge (ordered information) that comes before understanding (applied information) that in turn comes before wisdom (integrated information).
From the above can it be said that fear BOTH informs and separates. It informs us of our environment and separates us from what lies outside. It is also in thought through our expectations and memories and the identity we have invested in through identification with the lower bodies.
