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.


You asked............

Fear itself. That one has been used a lot, many people identify with it.

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 place.

Hmmmm. That is the first time that one came up. Rape is an ugly thing. Someone physically forces themselves onto someone else. Sounds kind of like a government.

Very simply answered. I like that. The fear of change is a big one.

Yeah that fear of drowning has to be up there somewhere. Very good point.

Well loud noises takes you by surprise, but no harm to most. As for falling, there are a lot of sky divers that would disagree.

I know because I have had a couple!!!

But things change everyday. The earth turning is a change. Change is a must.

I would say absolute proof that aliens exist and that fact being exposed to the general population. The elite would drop their bowels with fear that the universe in fact does not revolve around them.

As far as joe average, probably absolute indisputable proof that god doesn't exist, Iv heard so many people say that if they thought god didn't exist, they would simply kill themselves.

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.
