Acrophobia -The fear of High places.

According to John Vassos the author of Phobia: An Art Deco Graphic Masterpiece, The fear of heights is a mix of simultaneous fear (self-preservation), and a need for self-destruction.

The sufferer fears high places both because he is afraid to fall and afraid also that he will not be able to keep himself from the wild leap that means release.

 

Food for thought eh? 🙂
