Do not take any chances is a preventive strategy that would be perfect if it were not the same as being dead.
They say the causes colic pain than can padecerse. I do not know if it's true, although we agree that compare subjective sensations of pain is impossible.
Would provide an interesting fact those having suffered many different pain could compare.
I am interested in both the topic I created a blog (1) to collect items that relate to suffering.
The thrust of these items means that life is a chemical phenomenon, characterized by self-reproduction and uses the pain and pleasure to stimulate certain adaptive actions of living beings.
Therefore, pain is a friend, but his language be particularly rude, irritating, unfriendly.
It can be said that the design of our cultures is determined by pain avoidant attitudes, which our life is highly restricted, limited, repressed.
Imagine you are forced to live within a perimeter marked by a yellow line, but for some the danger underfoot begins long before.
That distance is take preventive limit freedom we lose. For example, if you do not eat chocolate for fear of cholesterol, we are depriving ourselves of an excellent food preventively because we imagine will hurt us.
This philosophy is supported by another cautious philosophy is even more comprehensive and we have a real chance to prevent, avoid and control everything that might harm us.
Stillness is the aim of those who, not close to the yellow line, decided not to move.
The absolute stillness as a preventive strategy is perfect, but fail miserably for a detail that seems minimal: that is the stillness of death. No life left to suffer.
