Interesting facts but I think people who answered  that they had no fears either told lies or were very strange. A question arises If one don’t have fear at all where is his instinct of self-preservation?))

Oblivion,

if you know that LD or OBE is not more than illusion OR if you have a wide LD experience then it's normal when you don't feel a fear. Also keep in mind that critical thinking (that is a part of self-preservation) isn't fully operating in that state, that gives you ability to accept anything (e.g. when I'm jumping into the closed window I can experience a fear of death in case if I fall off, but I don't experience any fear regarding broken window glass).

I personally feel no fear while in the phase..in fact in any LD i have i jump thru windows or walls...works great!
My personal opinion is that one can enter easyly in the phase if one thinks that fear does not exist!
