Obviously, you have a keen awareness of your surroundings. Nice writing.
Some of the questions you ask may have answers never meant to be revealed. We came from "universal sparks" (for lack of a better word). Why were all species (including us) created in the same manner--to kill to survive. Did creation have to be formed in that manner? I often wonder if species could have evolved (however they evolved) differently, without the need to eat (thus, eliminating the killing also).
One would have to question nature itself (to question evolution) to get satisfactory answers. That might be impossible.
In my own little corner within myself, the farthest from fear I ever got was when I'd sit in my mom's kitchen listening to her comforting words as she whipped up a plate for me. It was there in her kitchen that I could actually relax and experience real peace and real freedom because there wasn't any need to defend myself from any harsh realities. But, when my stay in her comforting environment was over, it was then when I had to become a gladiator again. Strapping my boots, grabbing my shield, reaching for my sword--leaving her apartment to enter the hostile street (the world) to face the people from whom I had to defend myself. Guess, that's the way it will always be. Sadly.
