All this

“Anxiety is the result of the perception of the truth about one’s condition. The idea is ludicrous, if not monstrous. It means to know that one is food for the worms. This is the terror: to have emerged from nothing, to have a name, consciousness of self, deep inner feelings, an excruciating inner yearning for life and self-expression - and with all this yet to die.”
Ernest Becker
