People are afraid of losing the character of Joe, Bob, Rick, Ken, Sarah, Betty, Susie, and Jane they made up.
2. People have built their false sense of self with so much care and attention.

What happens to the ego when there isn't a body to take on the victim or perpetrator's role?

What God creates cannot die.
