Death is an existential phenomenon. It is also a phenomenon with inevitable and universal aspects at the same time.
In our birth, there is always the motivation to stay alive. For this reason, the underlying cause behind all our fears is that we must perceive something that threatens our lives and threatening our alive form.

For example, the real reason behind our fear of starvation or darkness is that it threatens our lives and It is nearing death. As a result, if we have fears in our daily lives, we mean that we are afraid of death and dying, whether we accept it or no

Not really, I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. If it happens it happens.

Plus if it happened, I wouldn't have to sit my property exam.

Death is an inevitable part of life, so no, I'm not worried about it.

No. I would have lost my consciousness probably no "experience" to be scared of. Although maybe I am scared dying, as humans generally try to avoid. Also I'm scared of guns and knives piercing me, pain, heights, etc.

I don’t fear it at all tbh, it’s going to happen to everyone eventually. There’s no point living in constant fear of dying, you may as well make the most of the time you get.

Not scared of death itself as it is a natural cycle of life but I do fear the pain/cause up to it though if the cause is any more painful then having dentist drill into you without anesthetic then I want to be knocked out before my death

No, but that doesn't mean I want to expedite it. I am more concerned with how much a given thing will hurt more than whether it can kill, so your premise that all fear tacitly stems from 'death' is, I think, false in some pretty fundamental ways.

No because there is nothing to be scared about because you will feel nothing its exactly like losing conscientious, likewise you would want to die.

No because I've had suicidal thoughts in the past so already made my peace with my inevitable death, whenever that may be.

When I was about 10-13, I was necrophobic to catatonia. I slowly had to deal with the prospect and this has matured into a sophisticated and well-defined indifference to death.

No, cos death to me is but a transition back into our original state of oneness with the universe. Death is not to be feared.

I nearly died when I was 39, so just think if it happens, it happens. I aim to live a decent life, then people will have good memories of me when the time comes.

Which is just an empty phrase. Both from literature and real life I know that near death experience can change a lot. You can turn your whole life around and become a different person as a result... Not necessarily, and not everyone... but still, it is an extremely meaningful experience.

I’m not scared of death. However actually being in a position where I’m dying sounds more horrifying than the end result.
