In this image, I depict a scene where a person is facing a white shark with no sense of fear, a frozen moment in time.
Yes, of course, that fear is a vital response to physical and emotional danger that has been crucial throughout human evolution.
In ancient times humans regularly faced life-or-death situations.
If people didn’t feel fear, we wouldn’t be able to protect ourselves from legitimate threats.
Today, the stakes are lower, but some individuals still develop extreme fight-flight-or-freeze responses to specific objects or scenarios.
Nevertheless, this image is more of a representation of a hero who was able to find a way to overcome this emotion, where, confronted with another existential threat, he sees fear from a different angle and chooses not to be afraid.
