Question by Dr. Watson: What is the physical reason for trembling and cold flashes with fear?
Why is it that when we feel afraid we tremble, or experience erratic flashes in temperature? What part of the body is responsible for this and what is the purpose of these sensations? I’m just curious, neuroscience fascinates me.

Answer by The Public Voice
What is Fear?
Fear is a chain reaction in the brain that starts with a stressful stimulus and ends with the release of chemicals that cause a racing heart, fast breathing and energized muscles, among other things, also known as the fight-or-flight response. The stimulus could be a spider, a knife at your throat, an auditorium full of people waiting for you to speak or the sudden thud of your front door against the door frame.

The brain is a profoundly complex organ. More than 100 billion nerve cells comprise an intricate network of communications that is the starting point of everything we sense, think and do. Some of these communications lead to conscious thought and action, while others produce autonomic responses. The fear response is almost entirely autonomic: We don’t consciously trigger it or even know what’s going on until it has run its course.

Because cells in the brain are constantly transferring information and triggering responses, there are dozens of areas of the brain at least peripherally involved in fear. But research has discovered that certain parts of the brain play central roles in the process:

Thalamus – decides where to send incoming sensory data (from eyes, ears, mouth, skin)
Sensory cortex – interprets sensory data

Hippocampus – stores and retrieves conscious memories; processes sets of stimuli to establish context

Amygdala – decodes emotions; determines possible threat; stores fear memories

Hypothalamus – activates “fight or flight” response

Question by danman: How has the bible’s Satan been used to turn the minds of Christians into mystic fear and confusion?
How has the figure Satan provided an easy excuse to ignore history, facts, and sound reasoned thinking?

As long as religious leaders promote his (Satan’s) existence are they not just simply saving their jobs?

When will Christians rely on the evidence and not superstitious legend?
A bogeyman (also spelt bogieman, boogeyman or boogieman) is a monstrous imaginary figure used in threatening children. This legendary monster has no specific appearance, and conceptions of the monster can vary drastically even from household to household within the same community; in many cases, he simply has no set appearance in the mind of a child, but is just an amorphous embodiment of terror. Bogeyman can be used metaphorically to denote a person or thing of which someone has an irrational fear. Parents often say that if their child is naughty, the bogeyman will get them, in an effort to make them behave.
People put the concept of the Devil to use in social and political conflicts, claiming that their opponents are influenced by the Devil or even willingly supporting the Devil. The Devil has also been used to explain why others hold beliefs that are considered to be false and ungodly.
The Book of the Dead refers to Seth as the “Lord of the northern sky”, responsible for clouds and storms.

The souls of ordinary deceased Egyptians where sometimes seized by him, but Seth protected Re against the serpent Apophis on his nightly voyage through the underworld. Later he was – strangely – identified with this enemy of his.

Throughout history Seth’s reputation grew steadily worse, until he became Seth, the abominable. In the Book of victory over Seth the god is expelled from Egypt. Magic is invoked against him, his effigy is burned, and he is delivered to the Devourer. Even his mother Nut is driven to repudiate her son:
“Is there a mother who consumes her child?
Is there a woman who draws her knife against him who emerged from her?”
I have opened (my) mouth in order to eat,
I have drawn (my) knife in order to commit slaughter
against that wretched Seth and his following,
(against him) who was not mild, who grasped in evil
against the eldest of my body, of mild manners,
who emerged with the royal serpent on his head from (my) body,
who was crowned before he was born,
(against him) who created evil against the body cleaver,
who was hard hearted against the benefactor,
who brought about unequalled crimes.

I am trying to get over my fear of shots. Does anyone know if hypnotherapy can get rid of it or of any other ways to get rid of it?

Best answer:

yeah i went to some counseling before aand they told me in order to get rid of the fear you have to try it and your fear will be gone for example if you are afraid of being outside your house you have to go out to loose the fear lol my fear is flying in an airplane i am trying to go to hawaii and im hoping to get rid of my fear before going to hawaii so i would have to fly somewhere alse before going to hawaii hope this makes sense to you its actually really simple just get a shot and you will lose your fear to it you know what really helps is to look another way when you are about to get the shot act as if you were not getting one squeeze on something and think of something else rather than the shot you will be shot fear free in no time!

Answer by Barry
20% of people are highly suggestible; a similar amount moderately so. Around 20% are not suggestible. You could try the free hypnosis weblink, perhaps for memory improvement, to establish which type you are, but keep in mind that an experienced hypnotherapist is well versed in using hypnotic induction techniques, then deepeners: They rely on donations to keep the free service operating, so, if helped, kindly contribute a little.

Aichmophobia (Fear of Needles) It sometimes develops into a phobia, often from seeing a hypodermic needle as a child, before vaccinations/dental procedures, then experiencing pain, and coming to associate the sight of needles with pain; wanting to avoid the pain, resulting in the development of a phobia. Examine the and websites, and use the locators at and phone book (but only if necessary) to find a suitable therapist, preferably a clinical psychologist. Systematic Desensitisation Therapy is known to be an effective treatment.

I am informed that children are less likely to complain if they are given something sweet (it probably helps them get their mind off it). Some people ask to lie down for their shots. Others ask where it will be administered, and to be told just before, so that the person about to have the needle can smack that place, after which that tiny pinprick has considerably less effect: (the nerves which transmit pain have already started work, from over a considerable area, and the pain messages of the small additional amount of pain, from a very tiny area, tend to get flooded by the others).

Obviously this can’t be used for dental procedures, but you could explain your phobia, and ask that they touch the sites for the injections with a tool, and you could could jab them lightly with the top of a pen, or pencil, to desensitise yourself. It may help to look away, and think of something pleasant, and promise yourself a nice reward, once it is over. As someone who doesn’t like them, either; I consider that it is mostly the anticipation of pain, which is the problem, and once you take that away, by inflicting a little bit on yourself, the “shock value” is gone, in a similar way to how you can’t tickle yourself.

Read: “Overcoming Medical Phobias: How to Conquer Fear of Blood, Needles, Doctors, And Dentists”, by Martin M. Antony and Mark A., M.D. Watling (Paperback – Mar 3, 2006), from your bookstore, or also has various other media about overcoming fear of needles. Most people are suggestible, to some degree, so you could either seek professional hypnotherapy, or more along such lines is at about phobias.
