Transcript of senior project on Fear

by Brennan Donnell FEAR: an unintrusive self-analysis What is Fear? Horror vs. Fear Music Fear is Subjective But is Fear bad? Also, Death... Why do we fear it? typical Horror movie All prior notes pretty much indicate that fear is bad. But what about fear as "survival instincts"? fight or flight?
If you don't are totally fearless, then what challenge is there to life?
if you don't fear death, then what is to prevent you from doing something stupidly dangerous and life-threateningly pointless? Fearing death is a bit of a mystery. for starters, what part of death do we fear?
the act of dying
death itself
the afterlife/unknown
those we leave behind
At a young age, fearing to die "young" is understandable, however, when if./when you arrive at age 80 ish, you should be over that fear, or at least have come to terms with the realization that it is going to happen soon. Dictionary Definition:
Verb: To be afraid of
Noun: An unpleasant or strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger What people said
(age 17) an emotion caused by the belief that something or someone is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or is a threat
(age 20): Survival instincts, self preservation portion of brain telling you that something is dangerous.
(age 40ish): assessing risk vs reward and trying to keep that calculation in balance
(age 50+) something bad is about to happen or impending doom examples generic plot
archtypical characters
extremely cliched
protagonists get killed off in gruesome, impractical ways by some equally impractically gruesome monster/headcase in a mask
HEAVILY reliant on "Jump Scares" Fear Harder to define
not limited to horror movies DON'T FEAR THE REAPER ITS THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT (AND I FEEL FINE) SEEMS to be about the world ending
listening to the words, it appears to actually be about the world around us changing, thus "end of the world as we know it".
shouldn't be afraid of the world changing if we can't control it. Singing about death.
nature doesn't 'fear the reaper', so why should we?
"romeo & juliette are together in eternity" one died so that way they could both be together in the afterlife It is understandable to fear a painful death. Pain sucks We don't know what happens to "us" after we die... (literally, we know), but what happens to our conscience? no science, religion, or philosophy has a definite answer to this. ` Main ideologies...
or talking points I found three main Things to discuss about fear.
1. What is fear?
2. The relationship between fear and horror movies & media
3. Fear of Death Frank Herbert: Litany Against Fear Frank Herbert wrote the "Dune" series of novels.
"litany against fear" is the description of a group of poweful women in Dune that got super strong through intense mental and physical training.

Yes, a lot of people may have a common fear, but they don't necessarily fear it for the same reasons.

I fear public speaking because I don't really want to make a fool of myself for a grade.

I don't like heights.

I used to be afraid of dogs because of my neighbor's rescue dog who bit me.
I also am afraid of the cars behind me.
