The fear can carry us far away
It can carry us far away from the here and now, because it wants to know us in safety (Dissociation: A change of the subjective view into an objective view from above: "Bird's eye view".) For example: In the case of a trauma, it may be that the soul shares the body That is why man is not right in the here and now).
Fear reports to us as if to say, "Watch this far and not further" or "Stop, do not do that" or "Stop that, that could hurt". The fear is a signal, a light buoy or a lighthouse in the dark, which would like us, if we were a ship, to walk safely into the harbor.
Fear as a warning sign
The fear wants to say by the sound of the signal, "Hey man, I'm worried about you!" It compares past experiences and situations with the current situation and reports in danger earlier than too late - and that's a good thing ,
Yesterday I saw the third episode of the feature film "Der Terminator" starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Do you know the scene when he comes stark naked to the ground and in a pub among the many people looking for a matching piece of clothing?
Like the Terminator
The viewer is allowed to see for a few minutes through the computer-controlled view of a Terminator and experiences how he measures the individual limbs of the people from top to bottom, calculated and scanned to find a suitable piece of clothing.
After a while, the corresponding target person is found with a suitable clothing size and the terminator's onboard computer triggers and announces: fitting garment found.
The brain as a scanner
It's similar with your brain, except that instead of matching garments, it looks for similarly threatening situations from the past.
Or remember what the parents said as a warning. If memories and situations fit together and build on the old feeling, then the brain triggers an alarm, and if the situation is perceived as very threatening, it can even lead to panic.
