What do people fear - bad things. What causes bad things - things I can't prepare against. So fear of the unknown is a composite. It's a fear of some unknown negative consequence (which is implied by fear) and it's primarily a fear of the inability to employ choice or self-given direction to avert that negative consequence.

So you're saying human's greatest fear is "negative consequences"? Of course we fear pain and suffering (negative consequences) but that's hardly a specific answer to the original poster's question. All animals fear pain as a part of the survival instinct, and I assume the original poster was asking for a fear specific to humanity and not the entire animal kingdom.

The man greatest fear is himself. He is the one who take decision for his health, school, job and familly. All our life is a question of choice. Good choice or bad choice are made by us.... Not the faith or chance... Our life is all rule by the choice we made.
