Operating from the premise that evolutionary instincts play at very least a tangential role in shaping the modern human mindset and overall view of one’s culture, we can assume that current culture fosters a level of stress that triggers deep inherent survival mechanisms. With that construct as the foundation for the processing of informational, cultural and interpersonal relations, and the implementation of the countless intellectual, practical and physical methods for stress reduction, human history demonstrates that there is a favorite strategy for attacking fear and the unknown. That being the simplification of the unknown into acceptable concepts that not only yield answers to unsolvable questions but tend to remove the stress and fear associated with unfathomable mysteries.
