Almost overcome with fear, Digit turned unnamed to face the spears and dogs of
Munyarukiko and his five companions. He would have to gain time for his family
to escape up the mountain slopes. It was his role, his "duty"--and although he may
well have known it would mean his death, Digit stood his ground. To Munyarukiko
and the other poachers, the silverback male gorilla, erect with his canines bared,
was doubtless a terrifying sight, one made more terrifying by the quick demise of
one of their dogs, whose frenzy at the smell of the gorillas, strong as they are, are
sadly vulnerable to the weapons of their physically weaker human relatives. Digit
bought the time for his family group to flee, but he took five mortal spear thrusts in

The ancient Hebrews regarded the body of a dead person as something unclean and
not to be touched. The early American Indians talked about the evil spirits and shot
arrows in the air to drive the spirits away. Many other cultures have rituals to take
care of the "bad" dead person, and they all originate in this feeling of anger which
still exists in all of us, though we dislike admitting it. The tradition of the
tombstone may originate in this wish to keep the bad spirits deep down in the
ground, and the pebbles that many mourners put on the grave are left-over symbols
of the same wish. Though we call the firing of guns at military funerals a last
salute, it is the same symbolic ritual as the Indian used when he shot his spears and
I give these examples to emphasize that man has not basically changed. Death is
frightening happening, and fear of death is a universal fear even if we think we
have mastered it on many levels. What had changed is out way of coping and
dealing with death and dying and our dying patients.
We would think hat our great emancipation, out knowledge of science and of man,
has given us better ways and means to prepare ourselves and our families for this
inevitable happening. Instead the days are gone when a man was allowed to die in
peace and dignity in his own home. The more we are making advancements in
science, the more we seem to fear and deny the reality of death. How is this
We use cuphemisms; we make the dead look as if they were asleep, we ship the
children off to protect them from the anxiety and turmoil the house if the patient is
fortunate enough to die at home; we have and controversial discussions about
whether patients should be told the truth--a question that rarely arises when the
dying person istended by the family physician who has known him from delivery
I think there are many reasons for this flight away from facing death calmly. One
of the most important facts is that dying nowadays is more gruesome in many ways,
namely, more lonely, mechanical, and dehumanized; at times it is even difficult to

Psychodynaic theorists emphasize that when threat becomes especially serious it
may lead to intense and widespread inhibitions. In the psychodynamic view, such
defensive inhibition is desperate and primitive. It is a massive, generalized
discriminative response to the specific danger. This denial defense is called forth
when the person can neither escape not attack the threat. If the panic is sufficient,
alternative may be to deny it. Outright denial may be possible for the young child
because he is not yet upset by violating the demands of reality testing. When the
child become cognitively too mature to deny objective facts in the interests of
defense, denial becomes a less plausible alternative and he may resort to repression.
Repression was one of the initial concepts in Freud's theory and became one of its
Material in the unconscious that is relatively inaccessible to conscious awareness is

Freud believed that the mechanisms of denial and repression were the most
defenses and played a part in other defenses. Indeed he thought that other defenses
started with a massive inhibition of an impulse, which was followed by various
elaborations. In projection the person's own unacceptable impulses are inhibited

impulse by its opposite is another defense, it is termed reaction formation.
