3. I think he fails to understand the processes involved connecting mind and body...

 

people with no fear, for example, wouldn't run from the bear at all, or if they ran from it for "fun"thrill seekers I guess), they wouldn't put nearly as much energy into it as someone who was genuinely afraid of the bear. Adrenaline kicks in much faster, response times increase exponentially, etc. when we are under a great deal of stress. Hence, the person afraid of the bear and having a proper fight or flight response is more likely to reproduce versus the person who doesn't have this response.
