“But doesn’t the complete absence of pain make us incautious? Would we not take risks upon us we – under normal circumstances – wouldn’t? Would that not be contrary to our strive for survival?”

“If nothing can hurt you, can there be risks?”

“Of course, something could kill me.”

“Would that be such a loss?”

“I would say it is in our human nature to fight for survival.”

“That is just what our animalistic instincts tell us.”

“Then what is it our human instincts tell us to fight for?”

“We are human. We are deprived of instincts. We have ratio instead, a much more powerful weapon.”
