Speaking about his plan to continue studying Fearology, Ósìnàkáchì said,

“Fearologists are hugely needed to analyze issues in the 21st Century. Imagine a fearologist analyzing the actions of Kim Jun Un the President of North Korea and the responses given to him by Donald J. Trump? Some of their actions, statements, and inaction have left the world in a fear climax state. I think I have a lot to do. That is why I want to rigorously equip myself the more because of the battle ahead of me and the required mentorship to other upcoming fearists/fearologists.

Let’s take a look at my upcoming work; Fearism in the age of Homo Deus, Fearological Analysis of Singularity and The Place of Man in the Teachings of Singularity. People like Ray Kurzweil, Peter Diamandis, Aubrey de Grey, Nick Bostrom, Kevin Kelly, Yuval Noah Harari, and others who are making waves in the Techno-scientific milieu also pose fear consistently as a result of their teachings about man becoming God, and other forms of Singularity ideologies — simulation of the human brain with that of machines. Most of the acts at the Silicon Valley like aging, gene editing, and the fight to overcome death is a task that behoves on the fearologist to contend with. After World War II, the fearful state of man increased. What becomes of a man when a machine devoid of rationality begins to exist? It appears I have much to do.”
