Fear is not afraid of you

It’s interesting to think if someone was locked in a room with what they fear and how their reactions will be. What is more interesting, is what that fear will look like, especially if it’s not a ‘real world object’. Please note, there is a difference between having a certain phobia and having a fear of something (or someone)

So what if I was locked up in a room with my greatest fear? How would the room be?

I try to think about it. The room would be full dark and void. As I would look around I would see pieces of floating, moving images… of various points of my life. Like video clips of certain parts of your favourite movie(s). That would be my room of fear.

Choices, which I could have made, but never did.

I’m no way the type who would tend not to cling on the past but there comes a time now and then where I’m reminded of many of the (countless) choices I have made, but for some reason I never did. Things I could have done but didn’t. Which I’m supposed to but I’m not doing it. Perhaps changing my life over and/or of others’ but didn’t. That is my fear.

Not as interesting like seeing someone afraid of insects shrieking out when seeing a spider or someone pissing themselves over heights, but well that is my story.

Ghosts?

Ghosts- one of the most oldest and (un?)interesting ‘concepts’ which has taken over the world.

It is quite interesting as we perceive these ghosts/spirits as an extension of our lives beyond death. I also find if quite funny as we categorize these ghosts/spirits as ‘good’ and ‘bad’ just like we do with our human species. Wait, can dogs be ‘good’? Cats are ‘bad’? Then what is with these humans? (as a species in a manner of speaking) And subsequently, ghosts.

And the most interesting of them all, the ‘bad’ species of these ghosts (if that even makes sense) are the most interesting since more than a century in popular culture! Count Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy to several mutated humans and beasts.

Oh and how could I forget fan favourite zombies? The ‘third middle’ option also termed as undead, the state of neither being alive or dead (which makes more sense then ‘dead’ if it is even possible)

Vampires were always cool, until you know that happened. (I don’t want to even speak about it)

And coming to them, we have the other ‘good’ spirits. Angels (whom I perceive more as pedophiles more than half the time, no offense to anyone) What’s more, we name many of our real world ideas or intellectual concepts as these angels. ‘Angel of Justice’ or ‘Angel of Death’

Death: “Angel of Death?!” Not cool bro, Not cool at all.

And coming to the actual question, whether do I believe in ghosts, No.

Though I would like to, no matter how irrational it sounds, the idea of them is always so intriguing thanks to over a century of existing in our popular culture, I simply don’t. For now they are well off in our books/movies/tv/games and other media, unless the zombie apocalypse actually happens (in which case atleast all my years of gaming and the likes of Resident Evil, Blade and The Walking Dead comes in handy)

Oh and while we are talking about this, what about God?

Ok I’ll stop it here before getting at jumped at. 😛

Before kicking the bucket

Although there are a lot of things I want to do before I kick the bucket, (See “The Buried Life” a very cool MTV documentary TV series) I never really thought about it as a list. So thanks to the daily prompt, now finally I’ll just jot them down, may be random and in no order of importance, although what comes first to my mind as I write it down may give a faint idea. So here is my bucket-list:

  • Write a movie script.
  • Become self-employed/Entrepreneur.

What’s the 11th item on your bucket list?

So let’s see:

Yeah I always wanted to do that! Especially seeing it in movies, video games and every other dam place. Hopefully will cross this one before most others.
