We understand you move, act, live, all in response to stimuli. Without stimuli, you cannot exist. We know this through our studies. We have studied how you, individually, reacted to the stimuli of various forms of fear.

Fear of one's own kind. Fear of one's progeny. The child about to destroy the mother. The mother's solitary defence is to destroy the child. Kill, or be killed. Which is superior? Fear? Or Love?
The glass halted.
Anger filled Ryland's fists with white knuckled tension.
