81: Afraid of the Unknown?

We often hear the phrase, ‘Fear of the unknown’, and see it as a reasonably fair reason for fear of things like; a new venture, the dark, or even death. 

Yet.. how can we be afraid of something that we don’t know?

My view is that, although there is often no denying we are afraid of certain unknown things.. it is not so much a fear of the unknown, as a fear of the ‘loss of the known’. 

What do you reckon?
