Yes, I'm terrified of death too. What we need to do is something with technology to allow humans to conquer death. Yes! That's it! It's been in front me all this time.

I don't know if it's a fear as much as a great sadness to think that someday there will be no people left on earth. Due to war, disease, natural disasters, asteroids, poisoning of the earth, or finally, the sun.
It makes me sad to think that all the poetry, music, stories, art and legacy of the ages will be gone, and there will be no one to remember. And no one to remember people.
Just as bad would be the end of creatures of the earth - birds, mammals fish -- all, and plants, trees.
I guess it's okay if life goes on beyond death, so spirit remembers.
As for fears, I have irrational fears of being killed by a bear or mountain lion. It make no sense. But when I am in an area where there are bears or cats - I am very nervous.

When i was about ten years old i was playing in a pool and decided to attach the vacuum hose to the pool water jet pipe. I sat in the pool at the other end of the hose and waited for the water to come out on my face but a giant bird eating spider the size of a pizza came flying out covering my face.
I started crying and ran around screaming like my face got bit off. The spider did not bite me or hurt me in any way but it has left a "mental scar" so deep rooted in my consciousness that the thought of a spider on me makes my hair stand up and goosebumps break out. And i have a few twitches here and there

The world that we are leaving our children and their children
Care to expand on that thought? What, specifically, about the world scares you? Once you more clearly identify what in this world scares you, how does that compare to another time period such as, say, the middle ages or the days of cavemen?
