Fear trumps logic in the short and long term.
Which is why courage is a hard virtue to fake.
A bird that goes to the field in spite of the scarecrow is not 100% sure that the fear it feels is not rational. It goes in spite of the fear it feels.
The scarecrows in life are perfectly designed out of our fears. And their effect is routinely reinforced by the gatekeepers.
We go to the field not because we are free of fear, but in spite of fear.
