very interesting thread LHX..
fear of the unknown goes way back and for some strange reason ..
usually that fear was dealt with in an effort to eliminate that "unknown" before even trying to explore what it really was..
only legitimate reason to fear death.. is again the unknowning of the amount of pain and time period it will take before death arrives ..

good questions but im not going to guess on the first one cause there's room for endless alternative explanations ...
the second is different for that only blame can fall upon self.. stubborn-ness and/or lack of awareness of our choices can be what sparks the dialog about this nonsense.
