Probability Tempers Possibility

Calm down
just calm down

I wish there was a science.

When we have no fear of the known
the unknown is all that is left to fear.
This is not "fear itself",
the unknown can be very specific,
varied, and prolific.

Once the known is exhausted
the unknown waits, inexhaustible
of supply and variety.
We can't avoid fear,
its natural, and healthy
as long as balance is kept.

Balance is lost when the unknown
has the urgency of the known.

Fear must be kept in its place
to remain healthy.
It must be disciplined
and controlled.
Maintain balance through exercise:
- Breath in,
- Breath out,
- Repeat;
- Remembering, possibility
is tempered by probability.
