A fear of falling

“There is an art to flying, or rather a knack. Its knack lies in learning to throw yourself at the ground and miss. … Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, that presents the difficulties.” Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Perhaps the propensity to miss is because of our fear of falling.

In which case, all that it takes in order to fly, is to give up the fear of falling.
