"Would you be prepared if gravity reversed itself?" - Chris Knight, Real Genius
I periodically sit upside down in my couch with my back to the cushions and feet to the ceiling like Mork from Ork and make plans for the reversal of gravity. I fear being outside when the disaster happens and falling endlessly into the sky, passing out as air thins and my unconscious body freezing in the outer stratosphere.
When I first heard Val Kilmer read the quote above I felt justified in my fear. It was a thing. Others think about it as well.
I've found mentions here and there on websites devoted to unusual phobias, but it doesn't seem to have a name yet. I am going to call it anti-barophobia. Barophobia being the fear of gravity, my alteration could mean the fear of anti-gravity.
Now that I have named my fear, how do I confront it? Can anyone truly prepare for the irrational?
I am hereby starting an organization of one to tackle this problem. I am The Foundation for Anti-Barophobia. At FFAB Our plan is twofold.
1. We oppose the work of pseudoscientists experimenting in the fake field of anti-gravity research. They are tampering with volatile imaginary elements capable of untethering the weak force that binds our universe together.
2. We will conduct disaster-readiness experiments and demonstrations with the goal of educating the public.
