    At this point of my life, I'm afraid of failure of finding a job that I'm passionate in.

    The reality that you seem to exist in, that is, thinking that your reality isn't the truth. My reality is the truth..I'm afraid of thinking otherwise.

    What worries me is that Japan represents the future of the world...economically depressed, aging population, extremely urban with rural population shrinking fast, young people not having intercourse despite being highly open to sexuality, general isolation of people despite being co-located due to technology...21st century schizoid man.

    We know there is no such thing as complete randomness...even random processes have order and meaning to them. What I find fascinating (and intensely more meaningful as I study it more) is that we are the product of such meaningful random processes.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Being dependent with no way out for most of my life and miserable. The thing is it could happen to me via accident or health problems by chance. Unlikely but still scary. I could survive pretty much anything else I think.

    To all intents and purposes this is true for me too, I fear for my safety first and concerns such as meaning and destiny or ultimate meaning are secondary. Significant enough but secondary.

    This.

    I fear war in the streets. Utter chaos. Everything spinning out-of-control.
