A reflex is performed without conscious thought - there is no pressing conscious need to do it you just do.
Properly triggered, a reflex is something you cannot choose not to do ... where you can choose to, say, starve to death.
There is also a relatively uncomplicated cause and effect involved in a reflex.

Consider also:
do you have a "death reflex" that is triggered by the application of large quantities of high-speed lead?
