me of being microchipped, and losing my mind to the point that i don't come back. and also that my brainwaves are being scrambled. but my thinking seems clear,, so probably not. plus my brain's not eggs
But now I think about it. I would fear becoming complacent to a lack of compassion.
Becoming used to apathy.
"An upsidedown wire heart
Being sucked into a periscope
Still the mind is dull
Like you need another excuse"
… a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
.. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
domain in which it is clear and adequate…. - David Bohm
Poverty, sickness or injury of myself or my loved ones, camel crickets, clowns, heights, losing the respect and regard of my husband and/or kids, finding a dead body in the woods, being raped and what that might do to my relationship with my husband, being stuck someplace boring with nothing to read. That's all I can think of for now.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
Major fears: Being tortured, getting replaced, losing a loved one, not living up to my potential.
Minor fears: Sleep paralysis, getting a kidney stone, snails, and water (I can manage pools (even though they're disgusting) but I won't go in anything larger than a pond).
The reason I am not a bird is that I would fly forever and die of exhaustion.
Becoming apathetic, too far removed from my emotions, Alzheimer's, cancer of any kind, being alone, not having control in my life over my life.
All for now though I'm sure I'll think of more later. I'm afraid of a lot.
