Are you asking specifically about the "end of the world?" Because I can chalk that up to just plain fear of dying.
But fear of the unknown, I'll answer the best I can: Imagine walking down a road in the middle of the night, and there are no lights, no stars in the sky, no sounds to hear, and no people to talk to. Just you and the road in front of you. There is a heavy fog that blocks your view in front of you and behind you, just enough that you can barely make out your own outstretched hand. Now imagine that you looked down at the road and discovered that there actually is no ground at all, and suddenly you wished you hadn't looked down. You're walking on nothing, into nothingness, blind and deaf to everything around you, and all you can see is a void. Your past? Hazy at best. Your future? You just have to wait until it jumps out two feet in front of you. You ask yourself: How do I know which path to take when I can't even see them? How can I prepare for anything when I can't see it coming? How do I keep calm when my life is nothing but a heavy fog in darkness? Why can't I know the future? What will happen to me?
