I would have to go with "Aloneness". As in: There is no god, there is nothing after death, there is no cosmic justice enforcer or karma. Simply life
as we see it with our eyes. Not as people see it with their hearts.
Being sucked into a dimensional rift and then coming out into the water off the Farallon Islands directly in the path of a very hungry Great White
Shark and then being eaten alive...... while unsure of where each next bite will come from.
Being in a milk white space, no longer having the ability to imagine as the bright light does not allow pictures to form. Alone nothing to associate
with feeling your awareness diminish, and having no way of knowing whether there is any continuance after the dissipation. Deaths door is a freaky
I would have to say, death. The reason being that since the dawn of recorded history and possibly prior to that we have instituted a vast amount of
theories on what happens when we die. Everything from nothing to a multitude of afterlife's and reincarnations. We've feared death to such an extant
that we litter the ground with dead bodies taking away viable lands that could be put to better use for the living. We fear death to a point where
we've created death cults that preach how we should conduct ourselves in life in order to be rewarded in death. We even view death as a form of
punishment, thinking it will teach the transgressor a valuable lesson in his afterlife.
For all intents and purposes, death is our biggest fear and thus plays the biggest role in our development. Take away that fear and I would imagine a
world living in much more peace than it is now, as life itself is sacred and precious and no life is worth less than any other to the point where we
think we can justify taking that life from this world for any reason.
It would depend a whole lot on who the man is, but in my opinion for the everyday Joe, the biggest fear would be going to hell. Most of us were raised
to believe in heaven and hell, so Thats my guess. Going to hell after death.
