Naturally, when people roamed yonder land, with a leaf over their loin, and a deer over the fire. Books were not a natural part of life. People's
brains use a system called "Automatic association", google it or read "How the mind works" by Stephen Pinker for more info on that golden nugget.
The way automatic association works is, it creates the knowledge of an object, but rarely does it take into account where that came from. If you read
about hundreds of corpses littering a hallway, your brain will just see hundreds of corpses littering a hallway subconsciously, the level of which
depends on your level of imagination.
Now, when people see corpses, they think of danger, you're subconsciously registering, to what your subconscious mind is a VERY real danger, and feel
very insecure/paranoid. Now that you know this, it is very unlikely you will start to feel uncomfortable while reading, so I hope this has helped, if
there are any further problems, make sure to let me know I can try to help in further detail on a more personal level.
