freaked out / afraid

Life itself as base, profane, material, reified, Earthly, earthly, grotesque, transparent, brazen, manifest, grounded, concrete, real, obtuse, open.

Fear of the real, fear of the body, the material, the committed, the law, the inviolate, the principle, the fixed, the One.

Maybe illness and disability don’t freak us out because they remind us of death, but because they remind us of life. All this stuff that keeps us from transcending, life itself.
