‘The act of birth is the first experience of anxiety,
and thus the source and prototype of the affect of anxiety.’
Every life is delivered into this world through pain – the very first initiation into the violence of existence. As a womb ruptures, like the nautilus shell, to ooze out new life - a struggle begins for subsistence and exuberance that follows like a shadow until the very last breath.
