Why does the cold scare us so, even when the heat could bake us and give us cancer? We shiver inside during the long winter months and wait out the cold and the dark like animals in their burrows. Too slow in the frigid temperatures to even respond to the basic needs of life.
When did man decide to come to these places of coldness to build their civilizations? Why not exist in the humid warmth of the equatorial belt and shun the cold, dark climes?
But coldness breeds determination, and from the places built on cold earth comes the aggression of the west. Its mind is slowed, but under its thickness lies warmth and the desire to survive.
