One example the author gives is the doomed situation a farmer found himself in, and how his coworker instinctively tried to help him, and found himself in the same fatal situation. When his mother and sister saw the danger these two men were in, they tried to rescue them and found the same fate. This is a prime example of what the author calls the “Domino Effect.” This effect is a result of our innately need to help others in moments of danger or distress. “A teen jumps from a dangerous waterfall and disappears; his buddies follow, one after the other, until they all drown” (Wise, 410). This example from the author

Anyone who was part of any war will tell you how awful it was, whether it was a victory or not. Nobody was ever prepared for an ally or a close friend’s death, whether they’ve been shot by an enemy soldier, or a sacrifice, or even death caused by disease. Sometimes death can be caused due to any physical condition, such as climbing steep hills or walking through rivers that almost reached an average soldier’s torso. Weather was very hard on soldiers, not because they always got struck by lightning, but sometimes it would be a very slow death, such as hypothermia or being caught by a rough current from crossing a river. If you were not in physical shape, you couldn’t be able to survive the hell in which the inevitable fate of war will bring to
People sit down to rest for a moment, and because of the lack of oxygen flow to the brain, they pass out and if not awoken, eventually freeze to death.

The rest of the team either risks death themselves, or they must leave the exhausted climber in the snow and save themselves. It is all a matter of will to live, or to die, buried in a frozen, snowy, casket on the face of the Mother Goddess of
