Trapped like rats... well they are predictable. They do the same thing, travel the same path always and will not try or reluctant to anything new. In many cases.. are caught, trapped and killed. ================= Not calling anyone a rat.. just some things that make you go hummmmm... ================= http://www.humantruth.info/neophobia.html General Neophobia in Everyday Life Humankind's Fear of Progress and Change =============== https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neophobia Neophobia, or metathesiophobia, is the fear of anything new, especially a persistent and abnormal fear. In its milder form, it can manifest as the unwillingness to try new things or break from routine. Neophobic Behavior Well documents behavior. Studied, utilized, practiced and understood by Scientist and many Americans. Oh yea.. I believe we are being played. I recently came across this… and read. Rats are considered very neophobic. They are weary of anything new. Of course I started thinking. Rats arrived abundantly from Europe. Europeans brought Slaves to America. Europeans understood rats. So the question is. Does our ancestral heritage have us neophobic to change? Why didn’t many slaves leave the South after Slavery? Are we afraid of change to the degree… we could be self-defeating our own progress to a better life? Knowing drugs, smoking and alcohol are bad for us.. why do we continue to do it...? simplist of a neophobic action... being human ( unlike a rat ) knowing it is wrong, bad and yet won't do anything different to avoid demise, being trapped or held in a destruction position. Is it possible the treatment, conditions, and how slaves were treated for hundreds of years along with the fears instilled in our ancestral heritage… be affecting us in some manner? What causes people to avoid change, and improve themselves? Old dog doesn't learn new tricks... I hear this alot. Thats not how I do that.. is another... without being open minded enough to consider... is it working?
