The limbic system (or Paleomammalian brain) is a set of brain structures including the hippocampus, amygdala, anterior thalamic nuclei, and limbic cortex, which seemingly support a variety of functions including emotion, behavior, long term memory, and olfaction. The term "limbic" comes from the Latin limbus, for "border" or "edge".
The "fight-or-flight response", also called the "fight-or-flight-or-freeze response", the "fright, fight or flight response", "hyperarousal" or the "acute stress response", was first described by Walter Cannon in 1929.
His theory states that animals react to threats with a general discharge of the sympathetic nervous system, priming the animal for fighting or fleeing. This response was later recognized as the first stage of a general adaptation syndrome that regulates stress responses among vertebrates and other organisms.Logical Scenario
A group of domestic cats have been assembled to demonstrate the limbic system fight or flight defense responses.
Their physical features have been observed when in a relaxed non-threatened state.
Later each cat has been presented with a threatening situation to study its reaction.
Under each circumstance the physical structure of the domestic cat has transformed to a combat-like creature.
- Hairs on back have raised
- Spine has become haunched
- Tail has curled downward
- Fangs have protruded downward
- Claws have extended outward
- Reflexes have accelerated
Clinical observation has shown the following reactions:
- Attack or fight the threat when cornered
- Flee from the threat when an exit is available
- Freeze when options 1 or 2 become useless
Moral of my story is: When threatening situations have been perceived, then activation of the limbic system serves to transform a domestic creature from its relaxed posture to a hostile posture. Conversely, eliminating perception of threat will deactivate the limbic system and the domestic creature will terminate its hostile posture and return to its relaxed posture.Rule 36 Requests for Admission

Lawmakers and/or law enforcement personnel have operated under the misguided notion that threatening persons with jail sentencing will deter crime.
Truth of the matter is that threatening persons with jail sentencing activates the limbic system fight or flight responses.
Danger of the latter is that persons have become hostile or violent. He or she has perceived police as his or her enemy.
In order to terminate hostile or violent behaviors, persons must perceive that police are here to protect him or her.
Congress has ratified our 14th Amendment to warrant equal protection under the law.
Public may scream in outrage, "Why are you protecting criminals?"
Answer should be: Clinical studies have shown that the limbic system fight or flight responses elicit hostile or violent reactions that become activated by persons' perception of negative impulses such as threat. The only possible way to terminate hostile or violent reactions is to induce positive impulses.
God has perceived us as liars when we say that we love God but turn right around and show hatred to our brother or sister living among us.
