@cosmiclemonade, on the original topic, I agree that fear is a child of need. But, since we already know fear and its grinding power, can we totally be free of it even if we erase our needs, or learn how to curb them so strongly that the cord is severed between the two?
In other words, would it take a newborn raised without needs to create a human without fear? Wouldn’t that newborn develop instinctual fear until he understood all that we understand about fear and its connection to needs?
I believe that theoretically you are correct. But your idea is illusive when played out in reality. Nonetheless, very good brain food. :)
