Pain

Abstract

Survival has always been and forever will be the main concern of all living creatures, including the human race. There is nothing more relevant, more significant, or more urgent in human life than survival. Survival depends on a supply of oxygen, water, and food, on appropriate temperature, and on opportunities for sleep and rest. Protection from hostile human beings, from natural disasters, from prey animals, from disease-carrying insects, from germs and viruses, and from other innumerable threatening situations are other prerequisites for survival.
