We all have phobias or fears, most of which do not come from our own experiences, but belong to us irrationally and not logically. Why are so many people afraid of the dark? Besides the more common fears – like spiders or the dark – there are less common fears, or fears that we didn’t know existed until we were faced with situations that created an immediate feeling of unease and disorientation. : megalopolis, for example, is a fear of tall things. Think of huge cruise ships, a skyscraper, the depths of the sea, impossibly tall statues. Some people, at this thought alone, would just like to hide their heads under their pillow. We present to you 15 photos of objects and animals so large that even people who don’t suffer – or didn’t know they did – from megalopolis would feel lost and tiny.
