They bring to mind the late Carl Sagan’s book,”Broca’s Brain”, wherein a 19th century surgeon collected and studied cadaver brains hoping to understand human behavior. It appears that the human brain is an amalgamation of human experiences during the evolutionary process. In other words, babies are not born with a blank slate, but with the proclivities hardwired in the brain from “knowledge” gained by ancestors from time immemorial. Otherwise, newborns will not have the capacity to learn language as an example.
This may explain why humans are attracted to religion despite progress in science answering most questions formerly answered with superstition. In the quest for survival, humans relied not on brawn but mostly on exploration using questions and answers. Unsolved mysteries are answered by a superhuman in the God catalog. This answer has become part of the “knowledge” bank passed on through generations and become part of Broca’s Brain.
Carl Sagan offered an explanation for near-death experiences and religion to one common human experience: Birth.
Pain conjures feeling of sorrow yet exists in nature to protect us all. Without it we scald our bodies in the shower, touch the frying pan in the burner, and death comes too easily.
Reckless is the absence of the fear of pain and with it we willingly harm outselves and remove our empathy of others. Pain and reckless are not mutally exclusive and life is a balancing act

“She comes outside about once a week, usually towing a large weed eater and garden bags. She putters around the rest of the yard before she lays her sights on me. Setting the weed eater and other small tools aside, she grunts and curses under her breath as she approaches with thick rubbery gloves. There is no need for her tools here. She pulls and yanks frantically at me. It never works. My roots are already deep. They are growing under this cold gravel, trying desperately to penetrate the nearby asphalt. How i came to be she does not know. Why am i here? She does not want me, but i am here and i will grow. I WILL grow! And her rubbery hands and meager strength are no match for me.” by- amy.
